Upon first loading up this new Gundam title you are greeted by a lengthy intro using modified footage from the Gundam Seed anime.
This pure following of the show sets the tone for the rest of the game - for both the good and the bad.
When first playing the game you have the chance to follow the story from the cartoon or follow the ones from the Mobile Suit Gundam MSV [Mobile Suit Variation] series - a very nice touch as most of these tales have never been told outside of Japan.
While the presentation of the game through voice over from the cast of the show among other things is a great way to get you in the mood to play, the controls can have you reaching for the power button.
Never Ending Tomorrow uses the left analog stick to steer your mobile suit and the right stick to adjust the camera; it's not a bad setup but it IS inverted by default so if that's not your thing check the option menu first.
The face buttons on the controller are used to control your beam [ranged] attacks and your melee [close combat] attacks as well as your robot's jet boosters.
Though you can target most enemies quickly with these controls, the speedier ones can cause frustration as the game takes a few seconds to lock on before your shots hit with any degree or accuracy.
It should also be noted that when you get close enough to attack with your melee weapons the game switches to a new camera and lock on system that can also get somewhat irritating as it can interfere with your aim.
I know that from all this it sounds like I might not like the game, but that is not the case; there are just some thing about it's design that can turn some people off.
Basically, if you're a fan of the animated series or just space combat in general I suggest giving it a rental - You may like it more than you think.
