Diehard GameFAN: Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 Review

DHGF: So the Dynasty Warriors series has essentially become a franchise that only reaches out to a select few people, largely because the franchise has been pushing the same general concepts and mechanics out to fans for the better part of its lifespan.

A point lost in this day of the internet, where anyone can call themselves a reviewer.
