Average User Score: 7.0Jul 6, 2014i like gundam a lot, and feel like i got suckered into the purchase of a VERY sub par / ok at best game.
first of all the co-op sucks. the way it's implemented just boggles my mind.
you can't set a game to private/friends only, so you have to reload if a random person joins.
when you get a friend to join, they are booted at the end of the level. repeat each lvl.
some lvls are very short. this gets annoying.
did i mention, the person joining has to have beaten the entire chapter to join
any level the host is playing? this is beyond stupid.
it basically defeats the purpose of playing co op.
i don't want to run through a game on easy, then grind for hours with someone.
why can't we both just play the maps together for the first time???
i've had disconnects from a player who i play games with all the time.
they live 20 miles away and we don't have the issues on other ps3 titles.
i'd definitely rate the game lower if it weren't gundam theme.
also worth noting.. base game costs $40. dlc bundle? $30.
so, it's not really a 'cheaper game', it's $10 more than retail triple A titles.
they hide a good amount of cool mech's behind that pay wall.
it feels very OK.
it's lacking a ridiculous amount of features for a game released in 2014.
not impressed. definitely not giving them more money for DLC.
look up video first. maybe you'll enjoy the game.
co-op implementation is really lazy, and a pain to play with friends.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.6May 27, 2014high production values in all the wrong area's. overall just kind of mediocre and one button interactions. the game is ok, but nothing amazing or ground breaking.
probably should stop making games for 6 platforms and then integrating smart phones.
but hey, rich ppl gonna make bad games. cuz they don't play games.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.7May 20, 2014pretty fun game overall. if you did not play the original, the tutorial section will clue you in on all the mechanics but imho it's a bit tedious. after you get through the first hour the game really starts to open up.
some parts definitely do not run at a rock solid frame rate, but it's not a big deal during battle or most of the areas.
i've played the game for about 6 hours so far and looking forward to getting really far.
if you like NIS games you won't be disappointed by this sequel.
lot's of great cutscene anime stuff :]… Expand
Average User Score: 7.6Apr 6, 2014pretty fun little arcade game. way easier to control the planes on ps3 than on the vita. really appreciate the cross buy! lot's of people knock the vita but i'm super happy with it. *shrug*
this is a nice game to throw on while a friend is over for a little bit, or to fill a small gap of time. not really something i could see myself playing for more than about 20 minutes at a time. but that's fine. enjoyable for what it is. definitely worth picking up on sale imho. or if you're bored and want a time killer.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.8Apr 6, 2014for what the game is, a boss hunting / co op game i really enjoy it.
not sure why the reviews are so bad? maybe those people didn't know what they were getting into or something. the game is cool though. i really like the cross save / cross play. it will be around for a long time.
i suggest looking into video reviews or some footage.
*shrug* i enjoy it… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Mar 23, 2014i'm really impressed. have played the series from demons souls onward, basically bought a PS3 to mainly play demons souls. the idea of the game reminded me of some mechanics of early MMO pvp/pk like in ultima online, if you kill someone or die to a player or whatever you can suffer. i really like that challenge.
the game is pretty much near perfect for what the ps3 is capable of. i'm primarily a pc gamer but couldn't wait the extra month to get it on that platform. plus i almost think it will have more hackers due to the HUGE russian community that will buy it super cheap.
i've spent about 70 hours playing so far, two different characters. the game has a LOT of content, and more is added in new game+. the pvp and co op seems to work so much better than before. really impressed!… Expand
