Excerpt: Time for full disclosure. I tried a Dystany Warriors game a long time ago briefly and through reviews and news items I've come to know what it's about fairly well. On the Gundam side of things I have been a fair weather fan, dropping in and out of the various series to see which dramatic stories I enjoyed and of course to watch the giant robot action. Other than that; first timer with the series.
Summary: When I was a kid, I loved watching Gundam Wing and the original Mobile Suit Gundam on Cartoon Network. The mecha genre has always been a personal favorite of mine so I tried to capture the same feeling while playing a video game as I had watching Gundam anime and pretending that I was Heero Yuy or Amuro Ray. With interest in Gundam on the rise in the US after the Cartoon Network runs, some of the games were finally localized for North America.
Summary: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn is bursting at the seams with pilots, missions, and mobile suits, but it’s too easy for too long. The summarized storylines will occasionally trip up newcomers, though that’s easily rectified with supplemental reading, but the issue of having to play for hours before getting the chance to increase the difficulty beyond a token ‘hard’ general setting is persistent and makes some of the larger battles anticlimactic.
Conclusion: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn is a fast and fun brawler with enough loot-crafting and variety between modes to keep things from getting too stale too quick. Played in short bursts, it’s an amusing arcade-style distraction incorporating a long-term reward system that keeps me coming back.
Summary: What should be the best dynasty-formula game to date is marred by simple mistakes with its environments and musical score. Ignore those, and fans of Gundam and/or Dynasty Warriors will have a field day with so much stuff to unlock that it�d take 100 hours.
Pros: Massive amount of fan-service content, Almost every Gundam can be piloted, True to the source material
Cons: Surprisingly tame soundtrack, Bland, uninspired environments, Lack of licensed songs from the show
Excerpt: While I have been a huge fan of the Dynasty Warriors series, I never really watched any of the Gundam anime, so I just haven’t had time to pick up the Dynasty Warriors: Gundam series yet. This means that I have an excellent new series to learn in Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn but I was a bit lost when it came to the story, or rather, stories. There are several different stories that it covers. I was taken back in time a bit when I started up the stories.
Excerpt: I would be mighty shocked if anyone who plays video games and is reading this review hasn’t heard of the Warriors franchise. You don’t need to have played the games to know the name, as the series has grown past its original Chinese story of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms with the Dynasty Warriors games and moved into various other historical times, such as the Japanese samurai era with Samurai Warriors , and other well-known intellectual properties. Like anime?
Still meching to its own beat – Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn review
13 July 2014
Summary: Every Warriors game has marched to the sound of its own drummer, and Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn is no exception. It certainly is one of the best entries in the series, and it covers a larger span of the anime’s timelines and alternate lore than its predecessors. But outside of its exceptional appetite for action that’s all one should expect. This game is great value for the money as long as you know what you’re buying.
Pros: Polished combat mechanics keep action flowing smoothly even against largest hordes of opponents., Largest roster of playable Gundam timelines and units yet., Still contains everything you liked about the previous Gundam Warriors games.
Cons: Environments don’t receive as much care or polish as the rest of the game., Not as many new gameplay elements as you want for a fourth sequel.
Conclusion: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn spricht eine ganz spezielle Zielgruppe von DW -spielenden Gundam -Jüngern an. Wer sich auf das repetitive Gameplay einlassen kann und die Story der Gundam -Serien eh auswendig kennt, kann hier etliche Stunden an spaßigem Zeitvertreib mit einem hohen Sammelfaktor und vielen Möglichkeiten der Individualisierung finden.
Pros: Jeweils über 100 Gundams und Piloten, Massig freizuschalten, Schicke Charaktermodelle, Japanischer Sprachtrack, Viele Individualisierungsmöglichkeiten
Cons: Eintönige Level, Wiederholendes Gameplay, Zu stark gestraffte Story
