Look... the bottom line with this game is this:
This is for fans of the Gundam "Series" ONLY.
What's that? You don't know anything about the Gundam Franchise and it's characters? You like Dynasty Warriors and are looking for a fun beat-em-up? Well too bad friend.
Sure you get a Dynasty Warriors game... Sure you get loads of gundams' to fight with... but you DO NOT get a STORY. You literally start this game with NO INTRODUCTION whatsoever, assuming you know everything about the characters, their names, and what they're fighting for. And unless you're a die hard fan of the series, you'll be ripping your hair out like I did.
(( Try to imagine watching the show "LOST" midway through, and then trying to make sense of everything and all it's characters... yeah... it's like that. ))
Now you might be saying "I don't CARE about the story! This is DYNASTY WARRIORS GUNDAM! I just want to rip some robots to shreds!" and you will! But after 10 minutes have passed, and you realized you've done nothing but run around hitting enemies for no reason, you'll start resenting every minute this game is on. ( Granted, Dynasty Warriors is a repetitive franchise, but at LEAST every game before this gave you the courtesy of purpose. )
So yeah... don't get this game unless you REALLY want to see all your favorite gundam characters duke it out with hoards of enemies. If not, pass this one up and save the headache!
I've never watched the show, so that may be the difference, but as a Dynasty Warriors fan, I was very bored with this game after about 40 completed levels. Sure picking different robots to pilot gives different story arcs, but the levels are just small squares built upon each other, and after hours of playing it's just so repetitive.
