The victorious Earth Federation has become corrupt and oppressive, and the elite Titans police force has taken on dictatorial powers. As the A.E.U.G. rebel group struggles to defeat the Titans, the heroes and villains of the original Mobile Suit Gundam series find themselves on the same side of this new conflict. The focus, however, is on a new hero named Kamille Bidan, the pilot of the transforming Zeta Gundam. [Bandai] Expand

    Even with all the unchanged flaws, Mobile Suit Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam is still the best Gundam game to ever come out, and is highly recommended to fans of the series.

    It's certainly the best Gundam game around. [Sept 2005, p.79]
  3. Doesn't do anything to broaden the reach of the franchise, but it gives fans exactly what they want--and plenty of it.
  4. You know the drill with anime games: They're typically a bit half-assed, and with Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam too much effort was spent on fanboy frills and not enough was spent under the hood. It's a fun ride, but this series is showing its age.
  5. Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam has its moments of mech smashing fun but they are just fleeting moments ruined by its flawed design.
  6. If there was an award for missed potential than Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam would certainly be up for game of the year.
  7. The clunky control and pathetically simple gameplay just doesn’t cut it, and so little effort went into the decent “changing history” angle that it winds up falling flat.

    Personaly i think its the best one ive ever played.
    Ive already played Federation vs Zeon, Encounters in space, journy to jabruo, Battle assult 2, and Zeonic front. The only thing ive got a problem with is that they didnt add the 0083 Mobile suits into the game as well. But other then that its great. as for the critics they need to relize that this game is bascicly a upgrade verson of Federation vs Zeon. However that makes it even more awsome because the controls are familiar to me, so i dont have to learn from scratch again. I love Federation vs Zeon but this Game beats it by far

    Having played this game i can definitely say its a lost cause. Controls are just couldn't cut it. I must say the the game is visually Having played this game i can definitely say its a lost cause. Controls are just couldn't cut it. I must say the the game is visually well done but overall it just doesnt appeal to me. But for all those gundam fans this game is one you should check out. Expand
