    In between the undeniable satisfaction of a plan coming together, there's also the goofed-up navigation system, the scattershot AI performance on both sides of the firing line, and the generally clumsy and slow pace of combat.
  2. The strategic elements of the squad-based combat mix well with the explosive action, and enough of the back story is relayed in the mission debriefings that having watched the original series isn't a prerequisite.
  3. While the concept is cool (though not original) as always Bandai's lack of effort in creating a comfortable control environment leaves the game hanging.

    Although ZF does a great job of sucking you into a world of squad-based heavy metal warfare, I can’t recommend it to anyone but hardcore Gundam fans. [Feb 2002, p.154]
  5. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine

    Simply superior than that previous effort in just about every way imaginable. [Mar 2002, p.108]
  6. A drastically improved game from their last effort, but still falls short of appealing to a wide audience range.
