This game flat out sucks. Ive been a big fan of the Gundam series since I can remember but the games have always been a dissapointment. This game is no exception. First thing you notice when you start the game is it has an arcade game menu. Then the graphics. Horrible graphics. Not even close to being worthy of a PS3 title. Then there is the voice acting. Its no better. There is no feeling in the voice acting at all... it sounds very bland, kinda like the actors didnt even wanna be there. The controls are terrible too. You cant even side step. Enemies move 3 times faster than you and chasing them down is almost impossible especially when they leave the area. You are limited to a zone in which you can move but the enemy goes outside the zone and starts shooting at you. The GM is stiffer than heck. Very hard to move around in and is very slow. And last of all it seems the game isnt very stable. Whether your in a cutscene or in game the screen jerks every second or so. This game is horrid and not even worth renting.
As a long time Gundam Wing fan I was much anticipating playing this title as one of the release games for the Playstation 3. Unfortunately it didn't quite live up to what I was hoping it would be, and lived up to the recent string of horrible Gundam Wing games.
Pro's: 1)Jerky movements that to me simulate what it would really be like to be in a mobile suit. 2)Aiming isn't the easiest thing in the world, but with practice can be made effective. 3)Decent Array of Suits and Pilots to choose from.
Con's: 1)No Online Play. 2)Graphics left something to be desired for a next gen game. 3)The Sinlge Player mode for both E.F.F. and P.o.Z. is extremely rushed, game was over before I knew it! 4)Not enough mobile suits to keep me interested very long. 5)Not enough time in between missions on E.F.F. to train your suit properly.
Overall this game was a dissapointment, but was still fun to play, I ran through each sides story acouple times playing different Zaku's and GM's each time, it made for a day or fun or so. Definately a rent title.
This Gundam game isn't as bad as everyone says. If you are a kid like me, you will enjoy this game, but you may also have to be used to the controls or you'll throw the controller on the ground and have a fit. Read how to play this game, get used to the controls, and keep trying even if you continue to mess up because you'll get better at it. Trust me!
