  • Summary: In the future, rebel space colonies launch a brutal war of independence with a series of coordinated orbital strikes against Earth. The chaotic assault signals the dawn of a new age of combat and the ultimate instrument of warfare is born, the Mobile Suit. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 combinesIn the future, rebel space colonies launch a brutal war of independence with a series of coordinated orbital strikes against Earth. The chaotic assault signals the dawn of a new age of combat and the ultimate instrument of warfare is born, the Mobile Suit. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 combines the devastating power of the Mobile Suit, the rich legacy of the Gundam universe and the furious Tactical Action game play of the Dynasty Warriors series. The game thrusts players into incredible battles against legions of enemy Mobile Suits on distant planetary surfaces and in the far reaches of outer space. For the first time, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 lets players engage in melee battles against colossal enemies such as the Psycho Gundam. The massive Psycho Gundam can quickly reconfigure their bodies into titanic mobile fortresses which can move with remarkable speed. However, highly-trained pilots can utilize their own Mobile Suit’s speed, agility, and of course firepower to defeat these deadly juggernauts. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 also includes new stories featuring mecha from the latest Gundam anime, plus mecha from Char’s Counter Attack and more. With mecha parts collected throughout the course of the game, players can adapt a Mobile Suit which can be piloted into combat. [Namco Bandai Games] Expand

  1. If you play through this avalanche of new content and you still don't find yourself warming to KOEI's Warriors series, then you can probably forget about ever doing so, because Gundam Musou 2 is absolutely the best in its class. Here's hoping it won't be quite so criminally overlooked as the first game. [JPN Import]

    Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 is the type of niche game that will be overly-criticized by most and adored by its fans. If you are a card-carrying member of the Gundam army there is no reason not to pick up this ridiculously-stuffed disc full of content.
  3. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 turned out to be a well done product, mostly on the technical side, and a quite entertaining one. The numerous game modes, as well as a plot not particularly inspired but interesting enough, guarantee an enjoyable experience, even if mostly recommended for the anime fun.
  4. I'm actually amazed how much content is in this title, but a wealth of features iced on top of a clunker is not worthy of consideration, not even for Dynasty Warriors or "Gundam" fans.
  5. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is a repetitive and bland hack 'n slash experience with a thick anime coat of paint.

    While it's not impossible to see why this series is so popular, each iteration fails to differentiate itself enough, and its poor gameplay, woeful design and awful sound repeatedly fails to impress. [Issue#176, p.92]
  7. DW:G2 feels like it was made for fans, but Koei didn’t know which fans to placate: theirs or Gundam fans. It tries to satisfy both but ends up disappointing both.

    This is a game purely for 2 kinds of people. Dynasty Warriors fans and Gundam Fans. I fall into the first category. While others say the This is a game purely for 2 kinds of people. Dynasty Warriors fans and Gundam Fans. I fall into the first category. While others say the gameplay is "old, boring, and the same it's always been", I say that it is tried and true. If you liked the first game, this is the same with a whole bunch more. More characters, more suits, more missions, more moves, improved gameplay, the new big giant stompy robots, and yes ONLINE PLAY! Though I haven't been able to connect to an online game yet... Maybe all the reviews from first person shooter addicts are scaring would-be players away from this game? Dynasty Warriors has been around a long time and has been relatively unchanged. By now you have a damn good idea what to expect long before the game ever comes out. This game is no suprise and does not reinvent the series. Nevertheless, for fans it is a great game and the slight improvements are well appreciated. If you are at all interested in this game, at least give it a rent. For me, a Dynasty Warriors fan, it was an extremely worth day one purchase. Expand

It is huge,lots to do,and unlock. It has a great amout of characters,though some more Gundam Wing might have been nice. The upgrades seem to do more than in the other series,and using the right combos,especially on hard,is a challenge. As for the worn out gameplay,Street Fighter 4 is the same game as it has been forever,same moves,with maybe 1 or 2 specials added and better graphics. But people like it because it works. And that would be the same here. Expand

The gameplay is not exactly original and they are basically button mashers but I really enjoy them. DW Gundam 2 has a ton of unlockable content and a lot of new gameplay elements.

This game is no exception. I had no idea the voice acting could get MORE annoying than it already was. If you're one of the last few who still think this formula isn't terrible, you are deluded enough to enjoy it. So I guess that's a vote in favor for the series, but against for anyone who has bills to pay. Expand
