Honestly, there's a lot to hate about this game. The combat consists entirely of mashing buttons to take down hordes of generic enemies that are actually the same 2-3 bad guys repeated endlessly, punctuated by the occasional boss. Boss fights are hampered by the massive amount of juggling inherent to the combo system- either you spend the entire battle wailing on the enemy, or they start a combo, and you can only watch helplessly as they continue hitting until their combo ends. Combat is further hampered because health items drop entirely randomly, so if you're unlucky enough to get tagged with damage at any point you'll spend minutes hunting the map for item boxes and praying you get the right item. The graphics are serviceable, but don't really scream "next-gen".
For all the minuses this game presents, there's a plus that might outweigh it. The biggest is the inclusion of many great Gundams to play as- you can play famous mobile suits from Amuro's RX-78-2 (Mobile Suit Gundam) to Heero's Wing Zero (Gundam Wing)- I was especially pleased by the inclusion of Zech Marquise in Gundam Epyon (Gundam Wing). Game modes don't go online or present anything terribly original, but there's the usual Warrior-esque Story/Campaign, and a couple of extra fighting modes for a bit of variety mostly designed around battling versus friends. There's even a very small RPG aspect, where you collect various components during the story to upgrade your Gundam.
Overall, this is a fun little hack-and-slash game built for a very specific audience. If you're someone in that audience, then this is a very solid title that I highly recommend. If you're not in that audience, this game will be merely a generic hack-and-slash title for you.
If you don't enjoy Dynasty Warriors, you will hate this game. On the flipside of that, this is a fresh, new environment to kill in.
I was a fan of the show, but I didn't watch all of the versions of the robot anime.
Now I find myself trying to find the episodes to learn what I missed.
I am addicted to unlocking the "mechanics" and pilot techniques.
For the graphics, they look very impressive for an early 360 title. The only complaint I have is the low-res textures on the environments. The mobile suits look awesome and the enemies look decent, but the bad environment effects are dated at best. The colors are also very vibrant when using a sp attack (musou attack).
The gameplay is my issue with this game. The Dynasty Warriors series prides itself on its repetitive but addicting nature of gameplay. This one sure gets repetitive, but it isn't fun or addicting at all.
One of the biggest problems is the partner AI. Your teammates cannot hold their own even against normal enemies that have no face. You will constantly move throughout the rather large maps in order to constantly save your teammates. This is how most of your missions will end up failing since your mobile suit is not a high enough level or fast enough to save everyone.
This forces you to needlessly grind out missions to level up your pilot and your mech suit (which are separate). However, leveling up your mobile suit only applies to that character as if you were to use that suit with another pilot, you will have to level up that suit again. It makes it pointless to use other suits since you will become a high level with your main suit.
As well as the gameplay, the game suffers in replay value. You have two modes: Official Mode and Original Mode. Official mode tells the events of the first three Gundam shows in the Universal Timeline. Original Mode has characters all over the Gundam universe with their own original storyline regarding a planet about to crash into earth. Each character has about 5 missions or so, and that's it. There is a verus mode, but you'll probably rarely play it. There's not much reason to replay the missions (unless you need to grind out your character to level up).
To pad out the game, the missions are excruciatingly long and tedious. For example, Herro's last mission took over 43 minutes to complete. 43 MINUTES WITHOUT DYING! Almost one hour. The mission didn't vary itself as all I had to do was capture bases, defeat certain enemies, defend certain bases, and defend your friends.
As I said before, I am a huge fan of the Dynasty Warriors series. However, this game just didn't turn out well for me. Fighting with giant mechs is enjoyable, but the crap AI, the tedious grinding, the way too long missions, and the lack of replay value certainly hold this game down. I'd recommend to just get any of the Dynasty Warriors games or to just get the sequel: Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2.
