Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire review

  • Mecha look amazing
  • Tons of replay value
  • Kickass robot dismemberment
  • Stiff animation
  • Repetitive action
  • Frustrating as hell early on

The developers of Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire were apparently under a tremendous amount of pressure to deliver a Gundam game in time for the PS3's launch (the franchise's popularity in Japan rivals Star Wars' over here), and it shows. All of their energy seems to have been directed at making fantastic-looking robots that do interesting things, while everything else feels almost like an afterthought. There's no real multiplayer, either, apart from slightly stripped-down, one-on-one vs battles that rarely last longer than a minute. Crossfire has its unique thrills, but there are plenty of games, even in the PS3's limited launch lineup, that deserve your money more.
