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.
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.
