Standard Koei, maybe even a little under standard.

Summary: Anyone familiar with Koei knows what they are getting in to for the most part. This game is a straight reskin of the Dynasty Warriors format with the exception of the map being broken into conquerable zones. This is probably more for easing the load on the system than any form of gameplay strategy or implemented mechanic. The roster is very expansive but the combos on the gundams are pretty limited.
Summary: I had Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 on PS2, and enjoyed it. Especially 2 player missions. So, Gundam 3 was an obvious pick on PS3. There are improvements in the game, graphics and otherwise. It really does look beautiful, and the special effects are in some cases, stunning. Still, I can't put my finger on why the game just does not feel like as much fun as it part 2 on the PS2.
Summary: It's a fun game, but there's a lot of things missing from it. The combat is pretty shallow, and you can't do much for variation. The good things are that you can obtain a lot of MS's. The soundtrack isn't too bad. The graphics are really smooth. Lots of replay value. And the fighting is very fast paced.
Summary: I love Dynasty Warrior games. I'll admit that they have become a guilty pleasure, since they are incredibly redundant and involve slaughtering hordes of mindless drones with interspersed mildly challenging opponents. In most Dynasty Warrior games the tedium of senseless slaughter is broken up with random variety submissions. Gundam III kind of attempts this, but doesn't do it particularly well.
Summary: The Dynasty Warriors games have been stale for quite a while, in a kind of holding pattern, not really making any significant advances to the formula. Dynasty Warriors Gundam 1 and 2 were more fun because it's awesome being a giant mecha, but really they didn't make any big changes. With 3, they finally start to turn things around. The new cel shaded art style looks absolutely fantastic.
Summary: The 1st DW GUNDAM game although it didn't have trophies like the xbox360 version and it was rather repetitive / mundane a bit it set the stage of what to expect. The 2nd DW GUNDAM game was an improvement especially with more varied story though the gaining relationship aspect was also a flaw (in my opinion) as it was nigh impossible to keep all characters at the highest lv. and the 3rd DW GUNDAM game well...
