Excerpt: Japan has proven this time again that giant robots are cool, none more so than with the Gundam franchise. Whilst it has barely made a dent in the West, in Japan it is as ingrained into their culture as Only Fools and Horses is for the UK. So Gundam plus video games should be awesome, right?
Review: Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 (Microsoft Xbox 360)
6 November 2011
Summary: : Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 is, as one would expect, another game where your super warriors rips through scads of dudes for hours and hours, but as these sorts of games go, it’s one of the better ones to come out in a while, and fans should have fun with it.
Fantasy fighting game with frequent but non-bloody combat.

Summary: Parents need to know that Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 is a fighting game that puts players in the middle of an epic battle between two competing factions in a part-medieval, part-fantastical world.
Conclusion: Overall: Gundam has been one of my favourite anime for a long time, and seeing the first game released I was in awe, played it and was hooked, the second was an amazing improvement and the third is simply breath-taking, I would highly recommend this to hack and slash fans, and those who are loyal to...

All pilots have appeared in an unknown planet – and as you’d expect you get the typical jockeying for position as alliances form between unfamiliar people, and hardened enemies put aside their...
Excerpt: Who needs pacing? Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 doesn't slowly build up tension - it jumps right into cathartic robot-on-robot carnage propelled by laser swords, laser rifles, and laser missiles. We like lasers. Against all odds, we also like Gundam 3.
Pros: + Robots with laser swords are awesome; look, some substance!, + Unlockable abilities benefit various mechs differently.
Cons: - Every mission is the exact same: kill everyone, control everything., ? Could we get a newer robot series made into a game? Gurren Lagann, anyone?
Summary: Many years ago, when I was still dumb enough to purchase games based solely on how impressive the back of the box was, I purchased a Gundam game. I believe it was Gundam Side Story 079, and it was my first, and until recently, only exposure to the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise.
Excerpt: If you’re a person who likes to do the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and then do the same thing over and over again a multitude of times without having much of a story to back it all up, Dynasty Warriors: GUNDAM 3 might just be the game for you.
