    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.

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.

    I would definitely not pay full pop for this game, but if you can get it on sale and if you are in the mood to beat the crap out of things and are a fan of Gundam, then this game might be worth your time.

    Enjoyable anime nonsense robot attack. [Oct 2011, p.103]

    It's a sad indictment of the brand that the most important point to be made here is that Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 isn't a sloppy shambles, but there you go. [Issue#75, p.79]
