I've been wanting this game since I first saw the trailer. Just seeing the 00 Raiser and Unicorn fighting against the Sinanju and Reborns is giving me goosebumps. I know it's going to be an epic game. After waiting for over a year, I finally got the game. For those who are new this game, this is an adaptation of the popular game series, "Dynasty Warriors". This is a hack and slash - strategy game where you will go to battles and fight numerous foes. Your main weapons are your knowledge and fighting skills. But instead of human warriors, you will make use of mobile suits to fight. So expect more of long range battle since most mobile suits make use of beam rifles. The past two game volumes were successful and made a huge impact to the gaming industry. As a result, a 3rd installment was made to meet the demands of the fans. Hopefully the series will continue to grow and expand in the future.
The gameplay in Gundam Musou 3 is relatively the same with some new added features. But the one you will appreciate the most is the "partner strike". You will have a partner mobile suit that you can call out during battle to assist you in causing more damage to the enemy. The storyline is also great. You will witness different alliances formed between mobile suits which you never thought was possible and new enemies will appear as well. In addition to that, the graphics are high quality. Every cutscene and mobile suit action are well detailed. It makes your gaming experience so intense that you will feel like your watching an actual gundam movie. Prepare to devote most your time for this game as you go over 300+ missions. If your tired of playing alone, you could also go online and play with other players. Aside from the game improvements, there are new mobile suits added to the game: sinanju, unicorn, destiny, etc. Most of them came from the 00 series. That's about it for the game's main features.
I couldn't find any flaws in this game. It's perfect in every aspect, most especially the gameplay and graphics. Everything you want from a gundam game is here. Although it would have been better if the game got an english version so that it would attract more fans into playing. I'm looking forward on how this game will evolve even further in the next volume. Hopefully more surprising features and new mobile suits. I would like to see the gundams from the 00 movie in action (00 Qan[T], Harute, Zabanya and Raphael). Overall, I love this game and it's worth buying. I highly recommend this game to everyone, most especially to the fans of dynasty warriors and gundam. This is a game like no other and I assure that you will love this game also. That concludes my review for the Gundam Musou 3. I hope you find it useful. Also check out my other gundam related game reviews.
