    Giant robots are great, but basing them on the Gundam license with Capcom developing makes them greater, if that's even. [Feb 2003, p.92]

    Finally, a well-balanced, fun Mobile Suit Gundam game that not only looks and sounds great, but also stays true to the illustrious anime series.

    This game will have you wishing that it would never end and with 200 missions and a multi-player mode you will think you've died and gone to heaven.

    The best part of Zeon is its massive 100-plus mission tree that puts you on the frontlines as a grunt on either side of the war. [Nov 2002, p.283]

    Certainly the best Gundam title for the PS2 so far. [Oct 2002, p.84]

    Depending on what you're looking for, Mobile Suit Gundam: Federation vs. Zeon will have extraordinary replay value and worth for some. For others, getting through the game will be a trial of patience and endurance.

There are so many missions and a whole crap load of mobile suits. It is challenging yet fun. The only hard levels are when you need to battle Amuro in his Gundam or Char in his Zaku, Gelgoog, or Z'Gok. The controls are top notch and easy to use. My favorite mobile suit would probably be..... the Gundam. Its cool how you can play as either the Federation or Zeon. I also like the arcade mode, which is a shortened version of the the One Year War. This is a must buy for anyone who likes gundam or great shooter games. Full Review »

I have collected alot of Gundam models figures and this was a great adition to my collection this game just needs a little bit more mobile suits for both sides, Like the Hy-Gogg, Gouf coustom, Gundam Alex, Kampfer, etc.... Chars Zaku is my fav and this game did well on the graphics for all of the mobiles suits. Ive never been Disapointed with anything Gundam but by far this is the best!! Full Review »
