  • 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] Expand

  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]

    Good gundam game.. not amazing.. good DW game.. not amazing.. many think this game is shallow due to how easy it is to bash your way through it.. like most DW games.. but.. go through again on max difficulty settings.. and it becomes a nail biting.. crap your pants when you come against an ace.. game that takes strategy, planning, teamwork.. its fun.. best of all.. w/dozens of strait outta the shows voice casts memebers.. and following character either along their original (show) storylines.. or going with the new story for the game.. its entertaining for sure.. don't listen to the naysayers.. if you are a gundam fan or a DW fan.. you will surely love this game..

    Don't let the critics fool you, this game is fun. It's not overly complex, which means simple but entertaining game-play.

    It's a fun game but can quickly get dull. Try before you buy.

    I'd have to say that the game would have been a lot better if only the cannon fodder enemies would attack instead of just stand there. It would have been great if they did miniscule amounts of damage, but mostly they do none at all and exist only to charge your special meter. Other than that, I think the game is fine; although it would probably help other people if the modes, stories, and characters were better explained. So, basically, if the enemies attacked you relentlessly with pitiful attacks (like in the anime) it would have been great. Having them just stand there and fight your team's cannon fodder is just disappointing. Expand

    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. Collapse

    Ok, first off Nick, you are a fool unlike the critics and you obviously have a terrible taste in games. Don't let this Nick character 'fool you', even if you are a fan of Gundam then you will regret having wasted good money on this half-arsed attempt. 5 minutes and you'll see just about everything this game has in it's batman utility belt for you. Only abot five basic battle combos aren't enough and you'll just find that the game quickly becomes so yawn endorsing that it isn't even worth debating. And why is this on PS3 and 360 when the graphics (combined with the most horrible physics engine) make such a mockery out of both machines? Just download the demo on PSN and you'll find that this game is the definition of the phrase 'Epic failure'. A wasted opertunity. Expand
