  • Summary: First released in December 2008, the DYNASTY WARRIORS GUNDAM series has gained much popularity, and finally the newest entry is going to be released soon. By continuing all of the popular elements and loosing unpopular elements of the previous installments, we hope that this installment is the best of the series. With newly added features to set this installment apart from the rest, it has evolved to increase the player's sense of "an authentic battlefield experience." Expand

    For fans of the series, it's a no-brainer. There's so much Gundam here I'm surprised it doesn't leave little Manga stains when you put it down.

    It gets its hooks into you prompting you to return in drips and drabs. Fans will love it as ever, but if you've never experienced the world of Gundam or Dynasty Warriors, this is the perfect game to bring you into the series.

    But in the end it's just another Dynasty Warriors game at heart with a Gundanium exterior.

    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.

    I wouldn't call this game bad. In terms of what it does at its core, it executes without really any mistakes. But the core gets really boring.

    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.
