Yeah Big fan of this game and the other two as well. A few new Gundams, and characters to be added to the game make for well a fun but limited game. Considering that missions are split by four teams, and then two, two become one and then you just try to get new stuff and lvl up guys and gals you dont care about but you can use each others gundams so you dont get stuck driving the substandard Ball or Zaku Tank with one guy all the time. The newest and biggist change for this was the graphics I was sceptical about cell shading at first but wow it realy pops some times you get lost looking at all that color and I'm not an art or graphics junky but wow. I didn't like some of the creation tweeks that they made but i can forgive that consideing you dont need to play a whole match while wating for you new up grages and that rocks. If you havnt play this style of game I sugest reading everything other wise you will be lost but all arround its a good time.
I am a Diehard fan of the Gundam Franchise and was really looking forward to this game. I was not disappointed, I enjoyed it thouroughly and am about 60 hours into it, still haven't finished everything. the amount of customization and Gundams/mobile suits you get is enormous, and there are millions of possibilities for your play style. The storyline is original and fresh, and the history missions are fantastic. the one gripe I have is that you cant pilot the Dark Gundam and cant use a Giant titan gundam. and that's another point, those Giant enemies are incredibly fun to fight, though annoying to fight on Hard. it encourages you to play every pilot by having missions that only certain people can unlock. also, having missions that require a certain friendship level (5 Freindship with kamille,haman and scirocco was annoying to get lol) is a good feature so you don't ignore anyone. I was planning on using only Setsuna F Seiei but had to change my pilots quite often which made things interesting. all in all, this game has great gameplay and story but, it does get repetitive after a few hours of nonstop play. I reccommed short burst of about an hour or 2 unless you really get into it like I have.
