GameSpot TGS 2008: Gundam vs. Gundam Hands-On

GameSpot writes: "Although you may think that all robots exist to conspire against humankind and take over the world in an elaborately staged robot uprising, you would be wrong. Robots aren't always so pleasant with each other, and Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs. Gundam is a game that proves this. In this PSP action game from Namco Bandai, you'll be playing as a giant robot engaged in a bitter duel with a seemingly unending stream of enemy Gundams. The combat is fast and frantic, with plenty of weapons that serve to offset relatively simple controls. The game was available to play at both the Sony and Namco Bandai booths here at this year's Tokyo Game Show, so we took a spin through it at the risk of prolonging this heartbreaking robot-on-robot violence that much longer.

The entire game was displayed entirely in Japanese, so it was rather difficult to pick up on any of the game's story elements, but we could tell this one is all about the action. You pick from one of dozens of different Gundam suits (with options varying from the obvious RX-78-2 to the more obscure ZGMF-X42S Destiny) and jump into a series of battles with increasingly difficult enemy Gundams. An intro sequence prefaces each match, displaying dialogue from various pilots who are about to throw down. The art style is a very retro manga look, which should appeal to those who've been following the Gundam series since its inception in the 1970s."
