Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2
6 October 2011
Conclusion: In short, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 has a lot going on the surface that could turn many away. However, if you give the game time to let you in on its secrets, although you might find yourself doing the same thing over and over, the depth combo technique and tactical elements really open themselves up and show that Gundam 2 is well worth checking out.
Excerpt: Even though their settings are centuries apart, a game with hallmarks of both Dynasty Warriors and Gundam still has the potential to be an enjoyable way to spend some time and a certain way to get the money rolling in for Koei, at least in Japan where both franchises are huge. Much like the first game, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is essentially another variation on the very much refined, but never close to overhauled, Dynasty Warriors formula.
Review: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Summary: That said, I think this game could have been better. For the next generation of this title, the Mobile Armours and presentation have to be fixed, as does the completely irrelevant online mode. Furthermore, they can stuff a few more characters in here from the spin-off movies like War in the Pocket and Stardust Memory, and by then, Gundam 00 and possibly even Gundam Unicorn will be finished.
Excerpt: is broken up into two main modes, Official Mode and Mission Mode. Official Mode follows the main storyline of the original series set in the Universal Century storyline. In it you get to play as the five main characters from the three original core series, following those series as well as Char's Counterattack.
Conclusion: Graphics: Pretty standard for DW games, some awesome cutscenes. Controls: It's a DW game. You only need 2 buttons and a stick. Tech: little lag here and there, and loading is pretty quick. Fun: Yes, but not for long, especially for achievements. All in all, I would say Just get 3. It's better for your health and you won't miss much.
Summary: " Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 " is certainly a game that will appeal to a more niche market who are familiar with the Gundam anime cartoons. Other casual players may find the game to offer a very shallow and repetitive experience which soon becomes a tedious affair despite the pretty enjoyable multi-player modes.
Conclusion: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is a repetitive and bland hack 'n slash experience with a thick anime coat of paint. Koei hasn't changed the formula for the franchise in quite some time, and if you've played one Dynasty Warriors, you've more or less played them all. That's a shame really because this franchise had some true potential. As it stands though, only the diehard faithful to both series will get any enjoyment out of this title.
