As both a Dynasty Warriors and Gundam fan I find this game to be just amazing. The number of useable Gundams alone makes this game worth playing, let alone the number or pilots and multiple story lines. Addmitadlly its a button masher and takes very little skill to play but its just too entertaining to play as Domon Kasshu and the Burning Gundam and beat bown on litterally hundereds of enemy gundams. I also find the fact that unlike so many of the older DW games it doesnt take two hours just to finish a mission and i find my self being able to complete most stages in about 5 minutes. Which makes it perfect for those times when you just need some quick fix gaming. The game also has rather nice graphics and a good soundtrack both bonuses in my book. As a gamer i should probbably really rate it an 8/10 but as a long time Gundam I have just got to give this one a 10/10.
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!
