  1. At the end of the day Dynasty Warriors: Gundam does what it set out to accomplish: mesh two different franchises into a game that is playable but familiar. This game isn't particularly innovative, but at least it gives Gundam fans something.

    This kind of fare might have been passable once, but considering the fall lineup for the 360, this game simply doesn’t have the chops to compete on Microsoft’s console.

    It could have been an excellent action title, but as it is, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam is unlikely to appeal to either Dynasty Warriors fans or Gundam nuts. The gameplay is stale, the AI is bad and the action is repetitive. The strongest part of the package is the mecha and getting into the cockpit is great. It’s just a shame that the rest of the game falls so short.

    One feeling I do get from the game is that it is a finished title, and quite a lot of effort has been put into pleasing Gundam fans, the only unfortunate thing is that whilst trying to add in the lore and even upgrades that the player can try to achieve for their mech, the game suffers too much from the over-repetitive.

    Middling fun in small doses, but how many times can you play the same game? [Dec 2007, p.85]

    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.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. Full Review »

    Gundam fan service at its best, If you don't like Gundam then why the heck would you be playing this game. I do not see why this game isGundam fan service at its best, If you don't like Gundam then why the heck would you be playing this game. I do not see why this game is getting low scores besides the fact that the game play is repetitive... but then again what dynasty warriors game doesn't have it... you should expect it. So if you don't like Dynasty Warriors or Gundam leave this game alone... if you happen to like either/or then check this game out. Full Review »

    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, orToo 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. Full Review »
