Many critics will call out the Dynasty Warriors series for not having evolved with the move to next-generation consoles. It has always been a straight-forward hack-n-slash title that doesn't deviate from its formula. This is what attracts fans of the series to continuously come back to the franchise and plunk down their hard-earned money – they know what they are getting when they buy a Dynasty Warriors title. When KOEI and Namco Bandai announced their partnership to combine the popular Gundam and Dynasty Warriors series, fans of both were intrigued at what may possibly come from the pairing. Well, in its second iteration, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 fails to keep up it's momentum from the original and proves to be stuck in the mud with moving forward.
