Summary: Fans of Gundam and Dynasty Warriors may be thrilled by this pairing, but I found the simplistic gameplay and dull level designs too hard to overcome. I love the customization options and ability to switch mech suits, but hate that there isn't anything interesting to do with these characters.
Summary: The knock you'll often hear about long-running franchises is that they become increasingly complicated as the series grows and evolves. Somebody new to the Assassin's Creed universe will likely be completely overwhelmed by the dozens of disparate modes that include everything from farming the...
Excerpt: I thought the giant mechs of Gundam could not be mixed with the wading through thousands of enemies game play mechanic of Dynasty Warriors. Guess who was wrong? This guy. Although to be fair, and to my own defense, I am not sure Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn feels right.
Summary: Dynasty Warriors Gundam often brings to mind my dad's occasional comment when we were sitting down to dinner at a greasy diner: "It's not very good, but there's a lot of it."

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn (for PlayStation 3)
7 September 2011
Conclusion: It's Dynasty Warriors with a Mobile Suit Gundam paint job. In other words, it's fun for fans of the legendary anime, but everyone else who wants to battle thousand-men armies may want to look at Dynasty Warriors 8 instead.
Pros: Decent hack-and-slash action. More than 100 mobile suits and pilots to unlock. Loads of Gundam fan service.
Cons: Repetitive action. Simplistic presentation. No original Gundam music. Unlocking content takes too much grinding.
Conclusion: This is the same kind of game, but instead of the same old backgrounds and characters, we can enjoy Gundam related objects. Hack-n-slash games are usually fun for a week or two at most, but after that they don’t really have anything else to offer.
