  1. 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.
  2. As is the case with every title in the franchise, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 doesn't re-invent the wheel. A few minor changes here and there, more than double the playable characters, and a half-hearted attempt at bringing large scale boss fights to the series are the only real changes over the last version.
  3. This bot-filled sequel delivers all of the mind-numbing monotony we've come to expect from the Dynasty Warriors franchise.

    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]

    A one-note, ugly button masher. [Apr 2009, p.102]
  6. A game that will appeal to fans of the Gundam anime series and Dynasty Warriors franchise only. If you haven't played DW before, then steer well clear of this.

    It's actively irritating having to press the same buttons and complete the missions over and over again. [Apr 2009, p.78]

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. Full Review »
