Is it any good? Is there U.S. release for this game? Or perhaps an earlier version? Can't really tell from the pics, is it a 2v2 straight up fighting game or is it a Dynasty Warriors clone? I recall they made one with a Gundam theme, I'd be interested if that was the case here.

I thought it has been that way for awhile. I would have totally bought it if it wasn't for no Korean or semi-english subs.

No English release. Your lucky if another Gundam game comes along now. I heard it is one of the best if not the best Gundam game.

It's not strictly a fighter, but it's a 3rd-person arcade action game. The Gundam Vs. series goes back about ten years now- Federation Vs. Zeon and Gundam Vs. Zeta Gundam came out in the US for PS2. Capcom started the Vs. series based on an engine they created for their Spawn arcade game.

It's a fun series, and $40 is an amazingly good price. I just got this for about $60 shipped last month and felt like I got a great deal, so if you like Gundam or any of those older Vs. games I'd jump on this.

Honestly at this point I'd say just wait for Gundam Extreme Vs. Full Boost. It's already released in the arcades for a whole year, so the PS3 version will probably come soon.

Full Boost is the new sequel to the Gundam Vs. franchise and adds lots of suits and new gameplay abilities.

I was going to bite, but after hearing this, I should probably wait it out then. Don't want the game to become obsolete as soon as I buy it.

Slightly off-topic, but is Gundam Age worth watching? I am a Gundam fan, but I watched the first episode and it seriously turned me off.

Hard to say, they recently started releasing new DLC, so they might just support this one for another year.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Gundam Age is only good in the 2nd generation. The other generations suck. If you are a big Gundam fan where you want to watch every single Gundam series then by all means watch Gundam Age. If you just want a new mecha series to watch then avoid Gundam Age.

Best Gundam game ever released in the US is still Encounters in Space IMO.



Journey to Jaburo had an even more awesome intro.

They are still supporting it with DLC suits for at least another month. It seems like the DLC is some of the suits from Full Boost so far.

Whenever that game does come (and it's not even announced AFAIK), it will cost at least $80 to import. What's wrong with getting this game now for $40? I hardly ever import anything but Best/Platinum Hits versions, and surely many others do the same.

Is the online scene for this game still active? How extensive is the single player mode?

I've always had my eye on this game; big UC Gundam fan, but not very good with import games... Judging from some guides and videos, it looks like there's a pretty steep learning curve too! Maybe I'll sleep on my decision, unless someone convinces me it's a definite must-buy.

Also, the limited edition arcade stick for this game is pretty sweet looking, would definitely love to have one of those!

I know I'm getting off track but is it somewhat easy to get into without know a lick of Japanese (assuming you played it).

Personally my favorite is Gundam Battle Universe for the PSP.

Crossfire really is a giant mountain of technical issues. But I like that too.


Also: If you are looking for a new Gundam show to watch and dont' mind it NOT being action focus and instead character focused. Watch Turn-A Gundam if you haven't already. Fuckin masterpiece of a show IMO.

I'm looking into both Extreme VS and Senki Record UC 0081...

both are jap based, i know story line is all japanese, but what about menus...i was burned by ordering Yakuza Kenzan years ago and never got into it because EVERYTHING was in another language

The best Gundam games never get translated.

Most of us could fully understand Japanese before this thing gets an official translation ( which is never).

The menus for 0081 are in english, but all of the parts/weapons you'll upgrade the mobile suits with are in Japanese, which makes that portion of the game a slight pain. Still, I imported it knowing absolutely no Japanese and was able to play it without much trouble. It's definitely worth it.

Can anyone comment on the single player for this? I watched some videos on youtube, but it just looks like 2 vs 2 combat. I seem to remember the PS2 Vs. games having fun single player modes, but I may be confusing those with a different Gundam game.

Extreme Vs is extremely easy to play for non-Jap speakers. It's my first game I've played in another language, and I have really had little to no trouble. Anyone on the fence for that reason can go ahead and order it without worry.
