Fighting 29 September 2017
Another installment of the popular game series published by Bandai Namco Entertainment and released on PlayStation 4. In this installment, the players get at their disposal over 90 different mecha (giant robots) from 17 different TV series and movies covering over 40 years of history of the Gundam universe. In terms of mechanics, the game delivers a complex 3D fighting system without any original plot, however, it includes some scenarios that faithfully recreate the most important moments depicted in particular series. During the game, one can control powerful mecha that specialize in different combat styles and feature powerful fighting skills. In the basic game mode, the fights take place in closed arenas, on which 2 teams (2 players per team) wage a battle against each other. Developers of Gundam Versus prepared a number of gameplay variants for both one and many players, e.g. 3v3 matches and a cooperative mode, in which the players join their forces to fight off enemy waves or face a powerful boss.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS Force
Fighting 23 December 2015
Another installment in the fighting game series set in the Gundam multiverse, popular especially in Japan. The game was developed by Bandai Namco. In Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS Force, the players assume role of the pilots operating giant mechs, called Mobile Suits, and fight various opponents. The gameplay does not deviate significantly from what we have already dealt with in previous productions of the franchise. The action is observed from the third-person perspective and several robots can participate in a single battle. As befits a proper fighting game, we are given a set of basic strikes that can be combined into deadly combos. As far as novelties are concerned, the most important ones include new units and the Extreme Force Mode in which teams, led by a player, fight one another in real time with the option to pause combat and issue orders to individual combatants.
