Conclusion: There’s no chance of you getting bored or running out of things to do. This is why Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 is such a clever game. It gets its hooks into you prompting you to return in drips and drabs. Fans will love it as ever, but if you’ve never experienced the world of Gundam or Dynasty Warriors, this is the perfect game to bring you into the series. It might occasionally feel like a grind, but sense of progress offsets any sense of dull repetition.
Excerpt: Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 looks good in action, but suffers outside of it. We'll start with the good: the game features a cel-shaded look that fits right at home. After all, this game is based on a long-running anime franchise. Outside of this fresh visual style, there's nothing to jump up and down about.
Excerpt: Dynasty Warriors as a franchise tends to ignite a love-hate relationship. That is fans love it, and critics hate it. Both sides make valid points about the game, and the truth of the game’s quality is likely somewhere in-between the beliefs of both parties. As a critic I try to review games for their intended audience, and as a long-time Gundam fan I believe that includes me.
Conclusion: I said it in the review and I'll say it again: this is the best Dynasty Warriors game out there. It offers a great level of challenge and it has so much content that it can last you over 150 hours easily, and that's without friendship grinding.
Summary: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 appeals to a very niche audience. That audience has already purchased this game so this review isn’t for those people. This review is for the general public. And for those people, don’t buy this game. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 uses the same formula used in all of the other Dynasty Warriors games that wasn’t fun years ago and isn’t fun now.
