  • Summary: 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. 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!

    It can be fun at times, and leveling your pilots up does encourage multiple play throughs, but this game is much more suitable for Gundam enthusiasts than the average gamer.
  3. Despite the dated gameplay, lack of online options and baffling storyline, the game manages to still be fun thanks in no small part to the charm that the Gundam license brings to the title.
  4. 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]
  5. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam takes the worst elements of both franchises, and smashes them together into a dismally vapid action game.
  6. A sloppy game. The graphics and audio are below average by today's standards and the gameplay suffers from repetition, lack of strategy, and terrible pacing.
  7. Middling fun in small doses, but how many times can you play the same game? [Dec 2007, p.85]

    Too many people put this game down just because they played the other Dynasty Warrior games to death. If you're new to the franchise, or even Gundam, I'd highly recommend this. A good veriety of mechs, intense gameplay, and interesting story quirks, you won't be bored. Especially with all the characters you'll unlock. Expand

    I love this game. I really enjoy the selection of Gundams. I think the Gundam series works well with the style of gameplay Dynasty Warriors has to offer. It isn't super in depth but it gets the job done. The boss fights are always a blast when you are boosting all over the place and firing off super attacks. I really have nothing bad to particularly say about this game, I really can not wait for the next one! Expand

    A lot of people who hate the game probably have never played a DW game before. They probably didn't know what they were getting into. However, I love DW BECAUSE it is a game where you just wade through 600 weak enemies with the simple push of a button. The Gundam thing is cool, too. I like Gundam, so that was a bonus. If you don't like DW, you won't like this game, guaranteed. Oh, and the unimpressive graphics and cheezy dialogue are to be expected from a DW game, but you may be too busy wading through enemies and keeping an eye on your kill count to notice. Expand

    Excellent graphics make it seem like you're part of an anime series. Fans of DW won't be disappointed.

    I believe the low ranks on this game are for people who have played every dynasty warriors out there and were expecting something more or had never played it and expected something more. If your expecting hack and slash mecha fun, this is the game for you. No real stress, great for coming home and causing havoc after a long day, and like any good mindless game, time can slip away. A must have for gundam fans in my mind and I've been one for years, especially if you can find in a bargin bin or used. Expand

    As a Gundam fan I was impressed by the breadth of mobile suits represented. I have only the 100,000 units achievement left to get to 1000. I have played with my 5 year old son and it was a great introduction to Gundam for him. Yes it is a bit repetitive but all in all it is enjoyable. Expand
