Being a long time DW fan, i enjoyed this game. I did have a few problems though.
Good: Lots of new chars and MS's, including being able to create the foot soldier mechs like Zakus and GMs. Online, while being a pain to get working, is DEFINATELY a welcome addition. The parts system is pretty decent, very similar to the old DW system of finding weapons. Mission mode was an ok idea that allows a bit of freedom in how you play threw a chars story.
Bad: Large mechs like the Psycho Gundam are more annoying time wasters than intimidating bosses Horrible Ally AI means that VIP mechs kamikaze plenty of times and other main chars are really meat shields with fancy mechs rather than fellow Gundam aces. Although they did add a decent amount of new chars to the sequal, WHY did they not expand on the other series (like Gundam Wing or the G Gundam series)? They missed out on having mechs like Deathsythe, Shenlong, and Tallgeese from the Wing series and Rose, Bear, and the other ones from the G Gundam series. That was a pretty hard blow imo. Mission mode's "relationship" system is pointless seeing as how you would fight along side a character in one mission, but the next you would be fighting that same person.
I was hoping that they would have an Empires-like addon for this series. As i said above, i would have prefered to where we would fight along side the same 3-6 allies in each chars story like in the first game rather than it be all over the place.
It's an ok game overall, strongly recommend it as a rent.
Decently good game. I'd buy it if I had the money. However, I think there aren't enough Gundam models to choose from, and even some that don't exist. For example, there is a model named "Turn A Gundam" Does that exist? Second of all, the enemy AI was too good. If you get hit once, your death is almost there. They can pull off amazing combos and can block far too well.
