Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 :: Xbox 360 Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on May 12, 2009
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Just like in the anime series, your Gundam is capable of massive destruction. Take out thousands of enemies without suffering more than a scratch in this classic beat em up game!

Dynasty Warriors is long standing game series where you play a character who is able to literally wade head first into crowds of enemies and defeat them all with a few swings of your weapon. While a bit unrealistic for ancient China, this style of gameplay is perfect for the Gundam universe, which features a select few Mobile Suits that are capable of turning the tide of an entire battle by themselves.


Same Old Story

The main problem with the Dynasty Warriors series is that there is relatively little difference between each game. You will always defeat thousands of grunts and a few special characters in order to conquer fields, win battles, and upgrade your character and weapons. As well, there is very little variability of gameplay within each game as most levels play the same as any other level without much change in goals or difficulty.


Even the story mode between Dynasty Warriors: Gundam and Gundam 2 did not change much, as Gundam 2 featured the same storyline, the Universal Century arc, with only the addition of Char's Counter Attack being new. This is a big disappointment to Gundam fans who were hoping for the Future Century or After Colony story arcs.


Seeds of Improvement

However, Gundam 2 does have a lot of new features. While players cannot fly the Heavyarms or Deathscythe, Gundam 2 does come with many new characters and mobile suits, more than doubling that of the previous game. Included in the cast of characters are those from the Gundam Seed, or Cosmic Era, story arcs, such as Shinn and his Destiny Gundam and Athrun and his Infinite Justice. You can even play as Lacus if you unlock her in the Mission Mode!


Mission Mode replaces the Original Mode of the previous game and comes crammed pack with hundred of missions. In mission mode, there are story missions that used to make original mode, but there are also collection missions for getting mobile suit parts for upgrading, friendship missions to unlock new characters and license missions to let pilots fly other unique Gundams. Although many of these missions are repeats of other missions, fans of the Dynasty Warriors series can rejoice knowing that the game will have nearly endless replay.


Mission Accepted?

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 will definitely offer hours of enjoyment to fans of Gundam and newcomers to the Dynasty Warriors series. However, if you are looking for a serious story line or dynamic gameplay, this game is definitely not for you.
