Excerpt: There have been countless Gundam games released over the years, and sadly many of them just haven’t been good enough to stand out from the crowd. When I first saw the E3 trailer of for
I was sure that this game would break away from the “its just somebody milking a popular anime by making a game” rule that anime games have been generally following for a while, but after seeing the game I’m not so sure.
Excerpt: The graphics in Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire are beautiful. They really are. The models and environments are detailed and, quite frankly, look the way they should. I am not the biggest Gundam fan, but I've been around enough to see some models and these look great. The problem with Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire 's graphics, however, is the camera. Instead of following behind you, you are given full control over the camera.
Excerpt: The PlayStation 3 launch lineup has shrunk considerably in the past couple months. What was supposed be a 20-something-strong collection of games that covered nearly every genre dropped by almost half. Part of this was because either Sony or the games' publishers/developers (or both) decided it would be in the best interest to both them and the consumers to give the games more time.
Conclusion: At the launch of a console, there are good and bad, and Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire is unfortunately a bad one. This is a game that has some small portions of a next generation content filled in with a whole lot of problems that we saw the series have on the Playstation 2. For those who like the franchise, I would say maybe check it out if you already own a PS3, otherwise you are probably better off with one of the other games already out on the market.
