Dynasty Warriors Gundam
This game is good. Not great.
I finished 1k achievements with 50hours of playing time. All in all it was a good game... I've played nearly all the DW/SW/WO series from DW2 going forward. And although I'm a fan of DW and Gundam.. I'd give it a 7.0 overall.. the storyline could've really been better (include more cutscenes and more variety).. afterall hack n slash for however many titles can only get you so far (additional content outside of that would help gameplay tremendously)... there are 16 different pilots in the original mode.. but some of the pilots use the same Mobile Suits.. (which gets kinda gay and repetitive because the playstyle is the EXACT same).. It just seems like they were just throwing different pilots on the same suit to fill up the slots.... they could've atleast thrown in additional mobile suits with diff pilots instead of new pilots with the same mobile suits... like throw in some Gundam Wing suits (my fave).. Part 2 also has the addition of Seed Destiny(another fave) suits which is AWESOME. My take -- Buy the game, enjoy it.. and play part 2.. you won't regret it either way XD
first of all i have been a fan of gundam since i was 4 or 5 so i have been looking forward to this game for a long time. This game is really cool there are 2 different modes. one of them mixes 3 or more gundam series for an awesome experience. the other follows the storyline of the gundam series the character is from, and from that characters point of view. The graphics are cool i cant really describe them because i cant find the word im looking for but they are really good. this game is pretty long to complete each characters story takes about two hour and there are over 10 people to play as and the voices sound a lot like the origin voices from the tv shows. the guys you have to fight arent tough at all they are usually in groups of about 30-150 and the groups can get really big. and when you beat enough of the guys a guard or stronger mobile suit will appear and they are tough. i would recommend this to all gundam fans, people who are looking for a game that will take a while to beat, andthose who are looking for an awesome thrill.
Please Read BEFORE Purchasing
As a fan of the Gundam franchise I have been following the onslaught of video games that have been released. Lets just say so far.. I'm not so impressed. Then I see this game sitting on the shelf at my local Gamestop, hand twiched and I gave. Bought the game headed home, put it in and after an hour... I was satisfied. Like all the other Dynasty Warrior games the point is to Hack & Slash your way through hordes of enemies, Gundam has shooting and flying to add to the mix. The game has little to no story but if your a Gundam fan and just want to blow everything to hell this is the game for you. There are playable mobile suits spanning across the entire Gundam Timeline, I have yet to unlock them all. All in all this one is for the die hards ONLY. Basicly if you own more then one Gundam game and enjoy those games then get this. If you are a casual fan or not a fan at all either forget about it or wait a while for the price to drop.
Marriage made in heaven,at least for me
I never cared for what the game mags say about Dynasty Warrior and Gundam games.After class,work,and other tedious activity,maybe what i want is kill 500 pathetic troops in a matter of mintues or destroying a whole city block in a gigantic robot to find a another gigantic robot that when it blows up,another city block goes up in smoke.I could careless of the mediocre cpu,average graphics,1st grader controls,and loser voice actors,these games are the only of their kind,and putting them together makes it even better for me cause i dont even have to change games.This game is more than likely going to be rated poorly,and described as dumb and useless by the game mags,but tell me where else are you going to find a game where in a matter of minutes,you and your robotic self go out and destroy 500 others just like you,tearin up a city like applesauce in a old folks home in the process?Nowhere,thus,i cant wait for this game!
Dynasty Warriors fans: Must have
Please make sure you read 'Dynasty Warriors Fans' though, since Gundam fans may not like the idea. But the fact is, this game is made for both. It's orignal story is quite well done, and I love how the art of each battle has it's own style. Space fighting is the same as ground fighting, so it's not going to thow you off like a bad re-make of Star Wars. This is one of the best Dynasty Warriors games out there. In fact, it's the best Gundam game out there... which isn't much to prase to say the least, but consitering how this game would beat the next closest Gundam Game by about 8 notches, it's still very well done. If this is your first Gundam or Dynasty Warriors game, you've got one of the best. It appeals to both sides very well, the fans of the Gundam Series, and the fans of the Dynasty Warriors Series. You can't go wrong, not at all. New commers, hardcore fans, you'll be talking about this game above the rest.
Demo is great. imagine game
Well people, telling from the demo, the original game is going to be awesome. ima a big hack and slash fan and i know some games get annoying but if your a true gamer youll know that this game is great and wont annoy you in anyway. the combo systems is perfect for this game. its made simple and not too complicated where people have to look at command lists all the time. they could have improved on the AI, thats the only thing i dont like too much about these kind of games. But the enemy gundums are hard if you dont know your stuff. my advice, GET THIS GAME. if you need long lasting fun, this is the game for you, or a super boring long oblivion.
demo was good
for a Gundam Game, this one looks not bad! for a DW game, it's a good direction, but while playing you realize something: this is just a mod! a really good looking mod, though. more entertaining. and i only have a few complains about the voice acting. 1) one of the girl enemies is really annoying and could've been left out. 2) when master asia says "without a strategy, your strength is useless. first, start bashing the enemy.", that's STUPID. it's a hack 'n slash, with almost only 1 direction to go. finally, with the gameplay: when everyone's got guns, laser swords, and axes and cannons and whatnot, why don't they shoot or fight back unless they're a boss or if you arn't doing anything? i killed over a thousand enemies the first time i beat the demo (it keeps track like previous DW games). not many other gundams who weren't bosses or guards hit me. it's not like they do alot of damage! make it harder!!!
Gundam? Damn Near Killed 'Em!
Woah. So I randomly hopped on XBOX Live and found a demo for this and decided i'd give it a shot: blew me away. I ran out and got it right away. If you enjoy any hack and slash and/or any game in the Dynasty Warriors series then this is so far up your alley it's essentially rape. With the addition of the ability to shoot guns as apposed to arrows and the amazingly helpful ability to fly and "super-strafe" it's definitely one of the top picks of all DW games and absolutely in the top tier of Gundam games. The story isn't anything fantastic, but does that really bother you in a hack and slash? No? Good. Additionally, any fan of the Gundam series of shows or games will be enthralled at the amount of characters you can play as (which, of course, the Dynasty Warriors series is notorious for). So all in all its nothing esoteric, but for playability and robotic sword swinging fun, this is the game for all.
its not china but really awesome
i now had this game for at least since it came out and I never played it that much. but since I played all my other games I have been playing this game non stop. this game is really awesome. Im not a fan of Gundam at all but if its dynasty warriors ill play it.
This game is going to be mind blowing. It is a genious idea and I hope Koei continues to add on to this particular series. I never really got into gundam but taking out massive amounts of enemies is awesome with a sword now add a futuristic twist and thier will be twice as many ways to dominate!
