Dynasty Warriors Gundam
Why can't they make a decent Gundam game?
I was pretty bummed the U.S. release of Operation Troy never came, so I picked this game up. I've never been able to get on board with the Dynasty Warriors bandwagon, and after this one on top of the first two I again cannot beat the first level.
I guess its the repetitive button mashing, and the unforgiving camera controls, as well as the dog piling, street fighter one tactics its pretty much impossible for me to beat the first boss on the campaign.
I'm a huge Gundam fan, but this is definitely not for me. Unless you're un-phased by repetitive gameplay, dont bother with this one.
if u like gundam then get this... im a big fan of the dw and gundam! i need to get the second one...
...at first, I liked this game. But, then I realized that it's tooooooo hard in single player and there are only 3 attacks. C'mon, you're in a fraking mecha, DO SOMETHING AMAZING ALREADY! To give you an idea of how hard this game is, I'm 25% through Ninja Gaiden 2 and I haven't even broken a sweat. I SOLD THIS GAME!
I love this game and hope the second is just as good or better! For ALL Gundam fans.
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.
Humbug on game reviews....this is a good game
Dont know why the "big" game rater magazines show no love to DWG. For all the gundam fans out there the game is sure to please. Story sticks pretty closely to the franchise, plenty of colors and flash to go around, plus the dialogue is not as "cheery" as one would assume for a anime-turn-video game piece. Sure it may not be new material but it does justice to the hack and slash franchise and fans who love the Gundam. Funny thing Is I'm not so much of a Dynasty Warriors fan...but 60+ hours put into DWG begs to differ. (all i had to say ^)
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.
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.
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.
