Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn - PS3 Review | Chalgyr's Game Room

Chalgyr's Game Room writes:

Growing up in Canada the anime scene wasn’t quite what it is today. My first anime experience was either Gundam Wing or Dragon Ball. From there I continued to find other animes that I increasingly preferred over regular North American programming. Don’t worry, this is going somewhere. As the years went on more and more Gundams either came over or were imported. Then I found Dynasty Warriors Gundam and was confused; who were all of these people that I had never heard of? From there I started at Gundam and then worked my way up through Zeta Gundam and Gundam ZZ just to understand the various characters that were within these story modes and side missions.

Wow. First accurate review of the game I've seen.

It truly is fantastic. Lots of little details and ideas I really hope they expand on in the inevitable PS4 version. Kinda sad we're probably stuck with the stupid "Reborn" title from here on out. Oh well. Really a great game. Well, maybe it's a bit light on content, but it more than makes up for the rubbish that was the third game.

Thanks Xof, our writer, PY, is obviously a huge fan of the series and had quite a bit of history going into it. I concur that it would be nice to drop 'Reborn' - but hopefully we do see this brought over and updated a bit for the PS4 sooner than later.

Yeah, there are a lot of little touches to Reborn that really make my excited for the next-generation iteration--little hints of things that could be so much more with more hardware to play with.

Like, I imagine the whole attack on Jaburo from Zeta Gundam taking place over a map that slowly morphs from in-space, to in-the-sky, before you finally land. Maybe even with playable ballutes.

But, yeah, as a gamer and gundam and musou fan I can always tell when reviewers don't know or care about what they're reviewing... which is almost always the case for Gundam and Musou games. It's very refreshing to see someone who A) avoids the tired musou cliches, and B) actually knows what's going on.


10 Disappointing Vita Localization Snubs

VGChartz's Adam Cartwright: "10 games which were localized for the western market and exist on Vita in Japan, but not overseas. It’s a topical subject I decided to finally tackle after NIS America unceremoniously decided to skip over Vita for Metal Max Xeno in the west – a decision which really bothered me as this was a game I’d been tremendously looking forward to. However, it’s just the latest in a long line of Vita titles this has happened to which has made being a Vita fan somewhat of a rollercoaster, particularly in its later years."

The Top 8 Games Based on Anime

IGN - Like all the cool special edition PS4s, Japan keeps the best anime video games for itself. Unless it’s from a super popular series like Dragon Ball Z or Naruto, then there’s sadly little chance of games based on anime making it to North America. If a game does receive an official translation, it’s usually several months to years after the initial Japanese release, such as with J-Stars Victory VS+.

Even so, a few gems have made it to North America over the years. Whether you're a huge anime fan or just a gamer looking for some stylish action, you can't go wrong with these 8 awesome anime adaptations.


Review: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn (DarkZero)

Dominic Sheard, DarkZero: "I would be mighty shocked if anyone who plays video games and is reading this review hasn't heard of the Warriors franchise. You don’t need to have played the games to know the name, as the series has grown past its original Chinese story of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms with the Dynasty Warriors games and moved into various other historical times, such as the Japanese samurai era with Samurai Warriors, and other well-known intellectual properties. Like anime? Then you might have seen or played One Piece: Pirate Warriors or Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage. Are you a Nintendo or The Legend of Zelda fan? Then you are most likely eyeing up Hyrule Warriors that comes out in September that is filling in the barebones release schedule of the Wii U. Today, though, we are talking about the recent entry in another anime licensed game, Gundam, with the fourth entry in the Dynasty Warriors: Gundam series, called Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn, upon us for all fans to destroy thousands upon thousands of mechanical walking machines."
