    Hey all, Im looking to get some new gundam games but i havent played hardly any. I like the ones that are mostly actual "mech" games....

    I have Mobile Suit Gundam ( federation vs. Zeon i think) for ps2 and i think its a blast. I also played journey to Jaburo but it seemed like a stripped down early version of the aforementioned game.

    Ive also got battle assault 1 and 2 but they got old after a while due to button mashing combos.

    any advice?

    The Gundam Vs Zeta Gundam game is an upgrade of Federation Vs Zeon with more mechs :D . Also Gundam Seed Alliance Vs Zaft II Plus uses the base mechanics but upgrades it with lightning fast gameplay. Both of these games are recommended by me :D .

    Its set during the One year War I believe.

    Edit: Also Dynasty Warriors Gundam as well.

    Other than Federation vs. Zeon and Jaburo I don't like the other Gundam games. The PS3 one, even though it looks phenomenal, sucked hard.

    It basically uses the battle system of Federation Vs Zeon. But now has an even bigger class of mobile suits and a select few can transform into Mobile Armour (Flying) modes. It was released as Mobile Suit Gundam Z: Aeug Vs Titans first and later they released Gundam Vs Zeta with even more MSs and a secret ZZ Gundam hidden in there. Unfortunately Gundam Vs Zeta ditched the old mission mode and opted for a Timeline story mode where you play different character's story battles.

    hmmmmm im looking on ebay for a copy, seem to be reasonably priced. I accidentally bid on a copy of federation vs zeon first ( DOH!) So we will see if the seller will cut me a break and i wont have to buy a game i already have.

    I like the battle system, and my only gripe about fedvs zeon is that it didnt have any suits from any series other than the rx-79 (g). And that suit is by far my favorite. I remember journey to jaburo had the blue destiny gundam, and GM custom snipers, even if you could just play em in one level.

    You should also try the Gundam Seed Alliance Vs Zaft games since their battle system is very similar (made by the same team) except faster gameplay speed and only Gundam Seed MSs. Except its a japanese only game so I guess its a problem if you don't have a Modded PS2 or Swap magic 9whatever its called)

    Also I remember a while back they were making a game called Gundam Vs Gundam that's supposed to have every single series to date including the Sidestories. But so far only for the arcades. I hope that gets ported to the PS2.

    Like Roan said, yeah, One Year War. That's where the Blue Destiny was from.

    Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story 0079: Rise From the Ashes that's the DC one and it's good (it is still my favorite gundam game) it has nothing to do with Blue Destiny, those were for the Sega Saturn and was called Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: The Blue Destiny (vol.s 1,2,and 3). For the PS2 might I sugjust trying Mobile Suit Gundam: Zeonic Front (a tactical game in the vain of Rainbow Six where you play as the Zeon), and Mobile Suit Gundam: Encounters in Space (it's the sequil to Mobile Suit Gundam: Journey to Jaburo it is all space based combat and is imo much better than J2J you can also make your own custom charactors and have them fight thru the One Year War, also it has like 2-300 diferent Mobile Suits including AU suits and Mobile Armors like the Val Varo or Big Zam). Hope this helps.

    Rise from the ashes also has the unique benefit of being 100% canon.

    yeah i wanna get some more Gundam games myself


    been tempted to get Gundam VS Zeta but its gotten kinda hard to find. or at least it seems like it [from last time i tried looking]

    im hesitant about the Gundam Seed games simply cuz i've not seen the show. Hard to get into something where you dont really know the characters [well. in a universe like "Gundam" anyway]

    I'm enjoying Dynasty Warriors: Gundam on the 360.
    Original and Official story modes.

    I have no idea who any of the characters are bar Domon and Master Asia, and the story makes no sense to me. But its pretty fun.

    Original mode has characters popping up all over the place, I had Puru and Puru two on my team at the same time, which I guess would mean one of them is fake?

    Story mode gets confusing if you don't know the Gundam storylines, or watch the shows, but just thought the idea was pretty cool...
