If you are a Gundamaniac like me, or if your a fan of the old school Dynasty Warriors franchise, then Dynasty Warriors Gundam II is probably the game for you! The sequel to DW:G is set to come out March 24 for the 360, PS2/3 and will feature a huge selection of mobile suits from the varying Gundam franchises (UC, Seed, Wing, G, Turn-A, V, and more).
So if you enjoy city smashing mecha battles or slaughtering thousands of opponents in a single battle to relieve a days stress, then this game will definitely be worth a check out.

*EDIT* It seems the game has been pushed back to 4/21/09 :/

1. Since I'm assuming you played it, was the first game any good?
2. For those of us who used to like the series, then had our souls crushed by the awful expansions and "dumbing-down" of Dynasty Warriors 6, would this be of any interest at all?
1. I a huge gundam fan, so I like the random interactions between the various pilots from the differing eras (the Zechs, Domon, and Puru team was pro). Gameplay was like any other DW game with the exception that you get to play some of the famous battles from the UC timeline, plus an original mode with its own story.
2. I haven't played DW:6, but I'd Say DWG was far superior to something like Samurai Warriors 2. DWGII is also adding a ton of new features like battles against mobile armors. Koei has an official site up now if your interested in reading further about the system.

Masamune: $60 is a bit steep for the game, considering my feelings on the franchise right now, but I'll keep that in mind if I ever catch someone selling it at a discount.
neo1337: I'm pretty sure I have discussed how this is possible with you before, but for the benefit of everyone else on this board, here's the deal.
For every other DW game, the basic button combos have been "square triangle," "square, square, triangle," "square, square, square, triangle" and so on. With DW6, they simplified it to where you just need to hit "square, square, square, square, square..." or "triangle, triangle, triangle, triangle, triangle..." While the general lack of innovation in the game overall is sadly unsurprising, I honestly couldn't believe they managed to make a game renowned for its dumb (but fun, mostly) gameplay and dumb it down to the point where even I wouldn't be interested in it.
Trust me, even casual gamers would probably be bored to tears by this. If I ever buy another DW game again, I'll make sure Gamestop gets my money for it instead of Koei.
