  • Summary: Seven years after the end of the devastating One Year War... 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.

    Something about the A.E.U.G. rebels doing battle against the elite Titans police force…oh hell, just pass the damn aspirin already. But the gameplay does feature its fair share of bright and shiny explosions.
  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. About halfway through my playing time with this game, I thought about gnawing off both my hands so I could flee from othe repetitious and shallow gameplay trap that I had stumbled into. [Aug 2005, p.100]
  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.
