Reviewing games is not normally Japanator's thing, so I'll post (some) of it here.
Reviewing Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is an uphill battle; just by reading the name alone brings a lot of baggage to the review. Let me break it down for you. Let’s just say that all games start with a 10/10 score. To your average American gamer, seeing the words Dynasty Warriors automatically takes five points away from the score. Then seeing the word Gundam after that will take about four points away. That gives us a 1/10 score, even without playing the game. This is no good my friends.
There is perhaps good reason to hate on Dynasty Warriors games, they all appear to be the same game, repetitive, and posses hilarious dubs. Gundam games are simply not fun. Most Americans are probably wondering why Voltron isn’t in the game, and wonder why every game is stuffed with characters they never heard of.
Plenty of people reviewed this game thinking just like that. Well this review is going to be different. Instead of looking at this game like it was the son of two ugly whores, I will instead think of this as a gift from the gods. Seriously, Dynasty Warriors plus Gundam—can anything be better than this? Well, perhaps Dynasty Warriors: Super Robot Wars, but I digress. Read the rest of my thoughts over on JAPANATOR
