Not the best game ever, but strangely addicting

I don't know why, exactly, but I can't stop playing this. I feel COMPELLED to upgrade Master Asia so he is even more overpowered than before. I think this is a testament to the game design in some way, that the core gameplay is so lacking yet I can't wait to play it more. The game design has flaws otherwise, though.

As an example, if you get a mission where a fail condition is that an allied pilot dies, and a Mobile Armor appears (which seems to be fairly random), just quit the mission and restart it. Your allied pilot will always decide to run up and attack its legs until the ally dies. When you become face-shatteringly powerful you can, about 60% of the time, do enough damage to it fast enough that your ally can survive, but even then it's far from guaranteed.

I guess if you like Dynasty Warriors, and you like Gundam, this game is peanut butter and chocolate, with a little fly stuck in the middle.

Make no mistake that this is a Dynasty Warriors game and you often find yourself pressing X several times followed by Y and sometimes even A. That being said, Dynasty Warriors 6 contained basically no combos and the combos added in this game are a welcome change. This game also contains literally 100's of missions to play through as your favorite pilot. Characters both obscure and legendary are featured in the roster of 40+ pilots to chose from, that is not even counting the mobile suit. This game contains almost every mobile suit I can think of and several I've never heard of. Each suit has its own parts to collect which can also be outfitted with special attachments. If you don't like Dynasty Warriors gameplay you will hate this game, but if you do, this game contains hours of button mashing.

I've never watched the Anime and the storyline doesn't interest me at all...but I really love this series of games. I was a big fan of the Dynasty Warrior titles but this Gundam installation allows you to customize upgrades for your robots and it has very high replay-ability. The adjustable difficulties make it so all ages and skill levels can enjoy the button mashing and robot slicing. Only thing that would make this game better is if I cared about the storylines.
