    If you're a Gundam or Dynasty Warriors fan, this is pretty much a no brainer as it's probably one of the best games in the series to be released outside of Japan thus far. Unfortuantely that's not saying much.

    Don't bother unless you're either a Gundam or Dynasty Wars completionist.

    For the longtime fans, this is what you like (though even fans should be disappointed at the lack of variety in Gundam 3).

    Those of us looking for a grind are better off with nearly any other grind game, and anyone who wants to make robots fight might as well stick with Activision's plasticky straight jacketed Transformers shooter. At least those games understand the concept of accessibility.

    I was really excited for this game, I really was. This 3rd outing for the series should have been their best, but sadly though it wasn't. Right from the get-go problems arose, from the cluttered HUD, levels that seemed really small when compared to other Dynasty games and Allied AI so stupid some missions were just difficult cause your ally would die quick thus ending your game. While some have praised the vast amount of mobile suit in the game they're all nearly useless as the have very little power, their guns do little to no damage and their combos are short. Only the Gundams and Ace machines are actually worth playing. The general story they're following this time also makes very little sense, with all the different characters and the ways they could have interacted how come the story is so lacking? The music is fair for the most part, although I found the game will usually only play 3 or 4 different tracks, which is weird when it has more than 20 to choose from. The character models in this game at least look great, but against the static and dull backgrounds it's not much a graphical leap forward. This game should have been the best of the series, sadly it falls short of even Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2. Maybe the next generation of consoles will have better offerings for stateside Gundam fans.
