If you take into account this is a "on launch" title and also a dated title, and you are a Gundam or Mecha fan, you may enjoy this. I certainly got more than I expected after all the bad reviews, but once you take into the factors mentioned previously, it's a pretty decent game. Reccomend you play it with Japanese sound if you dont mind reading subs, sound's far better than the English voice actors, but that's personal opinion.
Short version: Good if you don't expect a Grade-A game and realize its dated, great for Mecha/Gundam enthusiasts.
ok for starters, no this game isn't all that great. especially when you are first starting out. learning how to move and use the controls right takes a little bit of time. graphics aren't the best, and it seems to lag some at times, but thats to be expected of any game.
the games voice actors probably are the worst in history, but when it comes to a game where all that matters is getting missions done to earn credits, the voices dont really mean a thing.
one serious downside though, is the accuracy of the enemy fire. even at a range where you cant lock on to them, their shots are incredibly hard to dodge. especially since their rounds are like somethin out of WANTED and seem to follow any direction you move.
ammo is constantly a problem until you learn how to use what little you have.
overall, 8 out of 10 may be a lot higher than most people have given this game, but once you take a little time to get used to a few things, the game is great
and on a side note, i think melons was talkin about a different game. very little of what was said doesnt happen in the game
