    I'm not going to say this is a great, even a good game. But it doesn't try to do anything more than what it is: this is a hack n' slash game, just like the Dynasty Warriors name would indicate.

I personally enjoyed the first DW:G that was released a few years ago more than this one but they are very similar and you won't be disappointed regardless of which one you pick up. However you should like the original Dynasty Warrior games if your going to get into this one. Expand

    Vastly better than DWG1 or 2 in many areas except for a very important one...
    The maps, the maps where shrinked and turned into utter crap, just a random mix of "Bases" and hallways.
    there was ZERO effort in making these maps i assure you, i'm giving a 7 taking away 3 points JUST because this game makes you don't even CARE about the battlefield at all

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 was a great example on how to mix two great series into one. It had GREAT Single Player content that gave you a lot to do. Multiplayer allowed you to be in massive wars that were very time consuming. It's units were very balanced and you never felt that one could easily overpower the other... Well, except for grunt units... Anyway, it had great atmosphere and content that will always bring me back. Then I heard about Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3... How disappointing... The game is very unbalanced in terms of content. Single Player consists of a Story Mode with mixed characters and... nothing else. That's it. Its clear all the focus went into the Multiplayer, with online battles, lobbies, and team battles. Kinda shameful, really. Not everyone is for Multiplayer, some prefer Single player, and Namco Bandai Games really really dropped the ball on that one. Now for the units, quite a huge cast of characters, which would be fantastic... except for the Unicorn Gundam which set new standards for BROKEN mechanics! You can SPAM your Musou Attack and stay in NT-D Mode for the ENTIRE GAME! Unfortunately, the game was obviously rushed, and it's DLC isn't really worth it unless your a hardcore fan of those specific units. If your looking for a good Multiplayer game if your really bored, then this game is for you. Expand

    All in all, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 was an entertaining diversion for those hack and slash enthusiasts like myself, as long as you aren't expecting anything more grandiose than that.

    New features--such as the ability to temporarily summon an ally Gundam into battle--add flavor to(but still can't quite redeem)the otherwise bland missions and mindless destruction. [Oct 2011, p.85]

    Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 is easily the best outing the Warriors series has seen in a long time, and it's exactly what it says on the box. If you enjoy feeling like a total badass as you wipe out hundreds of enemies with flash, speed and technique, then this game's worth full price even with its few flaws - possibly more so if you're already a Gundam geek. If you're not, though, beware: This game may turn you into one before you know it.
