    If you are looking or a game with loads of content, Dynasty Warriors should be your thing. It's too bad that the storytelling in this game isn't that great.

    “Reborn” – sounds like a new beginning, doesn’t it? But it isn’t. This is little more than a superficial sequel that at its core is less satisfying than its predecessor.

    i like gundam a lot, and feel like i got suckered into the purchase of a VERY sub par / ok at best game.

    first of all the co-op sucks. the way it's implemented just boggles my mind.
    you can't set a game to private/friends only, so you have to reload if a random person joins.
    when you get a friend to join, they are booted at the end of the level. repeat each lvl.
    some lvls are very short. this gets annoying.

    did i mention, the person joining has to have beaten the entire chapter to join
    any level the host is playing? this is beyond stupid.
    it basically defeats the purpose of playing co op.
    i don't want to run through a game on easy, then grind for hours with someone.
    why can't we both just play the maps together for the first time???

    i've had disconnects from a player who i play games with all the time.
    they live 20 miles away and we don't have the issues on other ps3 titles.

    i'd definitely rate the game lower if it weren't gundam theme.

    also worth noting.. base game costs $40. dlc bundle? $30.
    so, it's not really a 'cheaper game', it's $10 more than retail triple A titles.
    they hide a good amount of cool mech's behind that pay wall.

    it feels very OK.
    it's lacking a ridiculous amount of features for a game released in 2014.
    not impressed. definitely not giving them more money for DLC.

    look up video first. maybe you'll enjoy the game.
    co-op implementation is really lazy, and a pain to play with friends.

    I love playing musou games especially when they involve franchises that are to my liking. Yes the game can get a little repetitive at timesI love playing musou games especially when they involve franchises that are to my liking. Yes the game can get a little repetitive at times with the enemies you fight and the objectives that you're given. This is expected from this game though so it's not really a problem.

    Now this is only my second DWG game with DWG3 being my first and this game improves on that one in almost every area!! They added a ton of mobile suits and characters from each anime series which I loved! My favourite gundam series is Gundam Seed and before (in DWG3) they only had like 2-3 pilots / mobile suits from Seed and in this one they had like 14 pilots / mobile suits! On top of that every mobile suit in the game feels unique and they perform as you'd imagine (from seeing the anime). The amount of characters / mobile suits and how they have a few story missions from the animes too had me very interested in the other Gundam anime series as well!

    I enjoyed the game so much I got the platinum trophy for it if that says anything. If you like DW / musou games and like gundam you HAVE to give this game a go. It's audio is Japanese only though so just a heads up. If you don't like DW games and/or Gundam though you probably won't enjoy this.

    8.5/10 for me personally.

    The mobile armor battles are still not that great compared to DWG2, though it is nice to actually get to use them yourself, even if their move-sets are usually fairly simple.

    Several storylines are missing that were in previous games.

    And STILL no Shiro Amada (EZ-8) and Norris Packard (Gouf Custom) being on the roster despite topping the polls since DWG1. And instead just a bunch more garbage from SEED that no one outside of Japan gives a crap about.
