An excellent beat'em up that gives players a stellar introduction to the, at times, convoluted world that is Gundam. I picked it up just to learn more about the series as a whole and have been blown away by the sheer amount of content. And it's a great stress reliever too!
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.
