  • Summary: (Known as "Gundam Musou" in Japan) In the future, rebel space colonies launch a brutal war for independence with a series of orbital strikes against the Earth. War is reinvented as advanced ECM renders long range sensors and communications virtually useless. In this chaos, a frightening new weapon, the Mobile Suit, is born. Agile, heavily armed and armored - optimized for short range combat with melee attacks and a wide array of weapons, the Mobile Suit is the ultimate instrument in this new age of warfare. The time has come to pick a side, choose a weapon and prove your supremacy. Dynasty Warriors:GUNDAM takes gamers through an intergalactic conflict where the only hope for survival is to annihilate the encroaching opposing forces. It's a one-versus-many as gamers fight at lightning speed aboard their favorite Mobile Suit, the ultimate weapon of war. Gamers can explore the rich and detailed setting of the Gundam multi-verse from a myriad of perspectives. Assume the role of legendary heroes and villains while strategically enhancing their power, skills, and abilities. Play out the legendary scenes from the rich storyline and marvel at the subtle twists viewed through the eyes of each character. Furthermore, unlock Mobile Suits and Pilots from different Gundam universe time lines while accomplishing secret missions adding limitless replayability. With a variety of game types including Official, Original and Versus Mode, gamers must overcome impossible odds to bring their Mobile Suits to victory. [Namco Bandai / Koei] Collapse

  1. Never boring and always thrilling. It's a brilliant combination of two massively popular brands and a clever blend of subtle strategy and bombastic button-bashing.
  2. The bottom line is if you're smart enough to read the title, you're smart enough to know what you're buying. So anime fans play to your heart's content. I know I am!
  3. 68
    An average game with a few good qualities here and there, but it's super repetitive.
  4. If you’re looking for a large robot game, a mindless killing game, or a Gundam game, look no further, otherwise, stay clear.
  5. Well, for what it's worth, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam wins the distinction of being the first game that made me fall asleep while playing it. [Sept 2007, p.92]
  6. North American gamers who aren’t rabid Gundam fans, or Gundam fans that demand at least a solid game experience to go with their giant robots, or even fans of the Dynasty Warriors series should approach this battle with caution – sometimes you have to pick your battles.
  7. 40
    Utterly avoidable and culturally irrelevant. [Issue#160, p.91]

    I agree MarkK. I bought this because I like dynasty warriors and Gundam but it is a very dull and repetitive game and doesn't do justice to either franchise. The only reason I continue to play it is so that I can unlock the other characters and because I don't have any other PS3 games at the moment. I'm glad it wasn't much since if I paid much more than than I would have felt cheated. One of my main complaints is that you can't run. Obviously this is because you can fly a bit but you can't do that for long so I wish they had included both. Anyway I agree with what others said about downloading the demo first. Expand
