    New Gundam Breaker is a love letter to Gundam fandom to the point where the devs can’t imagine that anyone playing wouldn’t know the mechs inside and out. In light of this, the real testament to New Gundam Breaker’s success is the fact that its obvious passion for its subject made me want to learn.

    A clear step backwards compared to its predecessor.

    There are some really good things in New Gundam Breaker, but others are terribly wrong. We would recommend playing one of the other far superior Gundam games.

    New Gundam Breaker is like a dream come true for GunPla collectors... and a nightmare for those who pretends it to be a decent Mobile Suit videogame.

    New Gundam Breaker is a good concept, shoddily put together. The story is a trope-fest, battles are confusing and the masses of text are hard to read. There are so few positive points it’s not funny.

    Between fumbling through the menus, mashing your way to a choppy and exceedingly easy victory, and clicking through meandering dialogue scenes that hold no weight, you’ll find yourself too bored to actually collect all the parts you want to make your perfect Gundam. If you’re itching to fight big robots, play Gundam Versus instead. Or, go punch that actual Gundam in Japan (don’t do that).

    New Gundam Breaker is a disaster. A near broken mess of an action game, even Gundam maniacs will struggle to stomach its many, many flaws. Its visual novel elements are so obnoxiously cliche that you'll have to stop your eyes from rolling our of their sockets, and the gameplay is a mix of clunky controls and unfathomable chaos. Add some unbelievably poor technical performance to the mix, and you have a Gundam game that's not even fit to be mobile suit scrap orbiting the Earth.

Yes it could be a bit more stable but the game is fun, there are tons of Gunpla to build and smash together and the gameplay is still great even if it had changed since Gundam Breaker 3. Don't get me wrong, this definitely isn't the Gundam Breaker 4 everybody wanted but it's still a pretty good game and clearly the calling it New Gundam Breaker instead of Gundam Breaker 4 was a distinction worth making, this is a change for the series and by no means a sequel.

    1. This is not gundam breaker 4 you are hoping for.

    2.NPCs actually do something in the game unlike gundam breaker 3 where they were present but pointless.

    3.Everyone keeps saying fights are 3 v 3 which is true but there are roaming goals and small fry.

    4.The camera and locking on needs to fixed as currently its better to have it turned off.

    5.It is true that you cannot level up pieces but I can confirm that pieces have moves related to that part.

    6. The game needs alot of work before its worthy of succeeding past titles.

    7. I hope we can make enough noise to get this game fixed but I will not score it less than 5 as it is playable, looks pretty and after patch 1 its alot more stable.

    Warning!! This is not Gundam Breaker Game.
    It is action game with stupid mechanic that use cosmetic gunpla as character.

    The biggest issues of this game is frame rate and short lag, that make the game unable to play.

    If you want good action gundam game with great customization, pick the Gundam Breaker 3 Break Edition instead. It was fun and way more enjoy than this.

    One last thing, I have a word for Bandai Namco Game. "You must fire the producer and staff who make this game and completely ruined this series." Please, don't attempt to change the good core game again.

    Just how can you guys f**k this up? I have played Gundam Breaker 2 and Gundam Breaker 3, here I am pre ordered your latest entry of the seriesJust how can you guys f**k this up? I have played Gundam Breaker 2 and Gundam Breaker 3, here I am pre ordered your latest entry of the series and found out this is the worst game in the series, or maybe worst game in my life?

    This game is so bad please allow me to start with the negatives.

    Cons:
    Bad story- Seriously just so bad, the characters and the dialogues, are all lazy writings.
    Repetitive- All matches feel the same, and you only get a few stages, but they made different story route with minimal differences in conversations but ultimately lead to the same fight with same enemies. All lazy effort to make you "FEEL" like there are so many stages instead of 10.
    Controls- Boy oh boy, the controls, good luck locating and aiming at your target. This game is all about killing designated targets to get quest points to stay ahead of enemies, sounds easy? Yeeeaaahhh, but do you know that the enemies team are also blend in your quest targets? and hitting your enemies does nothing but wasting your resources? Also the input is so bad I don't even need a professional gamer to tell me that. Im no competitive player and I can tell the input lag is so bad.
    Gameplay- The most exciting part of Gundam Breaker game is when you got some new parts with new skills, you can't wait to jump into the next match and try it out, With this game? Well good luck with that. All your part skills (Called EX Skills) are locked at the beginning of a match, and you have to grind to level up (Like a moba game) to unlock and in order to use them, and it is completely random which part unlocks first. WOW! You can't even test your new parts immediately, and sometimes when you have really bad luck, you might need to wait a few matches just to test your new parts because you might not get it unlocked before you finish the match! Big applause to the genius who thought of this. Now imagine you have a part which you can select one of the 4 skills it contains, and you wish to test them all, that would take a long time and very frustrating because you have no control over which part unlocks first, and by the time you realize that skill or part is useless, its probably already mid game and you have to endure it to the end.
    Graphics- It is not bad, game is beautiful and some of the stages are quite fun to look at, but do you know the game freezes 2-3 seconds more than a few times every match? Yes, every match.
    Skills- For the sake of multiplayer, they nerfed alot of the skills and that's unacceptable for a Gundam Fan like me. Quantum Burst is a self heal skill? Really? Non-homing Funnels? Wow? Atomic Bazooka can't even kill some of the AI units but drained all your gauge. Gundam series has so many unique skills, unique parts and everything is so bland in this game just because they want a balance multiplayer environment.
    Parts picking- Hahahahaahahahhahahaaa, this is what the programmer was thinking then they design this part. First you have to damage your enemies, and if you are lucky, they dropped some parts and you may able to pick them up, BUT, you only can hold 5 parts max and you have to send them back at a specific location which generated randomly. If you are lucky, you may be able to spot the part you want, and if you are lucky there are no enemies around to back stab, shoot lasers, stuns, disable you, you may be able to walk there and pick it up, and if you are even luckier that no one is following you to damage you and cause you to drop the parts during the trip to send the parts, and then when you are sending the parts at the location, nobody is there to disturb you, then voila! You will receive the parts after you finish the match! This is a complete chore! and only 5 parts at a time!

    Pros: It has Gundams for Gundam fans, nothing more.

    I can't praise this game, I really cannot. The technical issues, the unpolished implementation, the ridiculous gameplay, everything is so bad.

    NOT. GOOD.
    Bamco decidedly switched development teams of this game for unknown reasons.
    What we got?
    A customization system that is a pale shadow of the initial 3 games.
    Your ability to make that dream mech? It's dead.
    -Game runs like hot garbage. (It's UNREAL ENGINE, HOW DO YOU MESS THAT UP?)
    -Game modes have all been replaced by 3v3
    -Game no longer has bounty mode
    -Game no longer has co-op
    -Part Skills have been removed. The only reason to equip any part is for their locked EX skills.
    -Option Abilities/Weapons have been removed, Breaker Parts are now just decorative and nonfunctional aside from minute passive buffs. THIS IS THE BIGGEST CRIME.
    -EX skills, which were once fully customizable are now locked to body parts which are locked behind an in-battle unlock system
    -Dash Canceling, air dashing, manual aim, etc are ALL GONE. If you are even one inch off the ground, dashing will animation-lock you into place. Combat Pacing is a JOKE.
    -Red-lock. Any time you knock down an enemy, they are now invuln, player has to wait for stupid AI to get up before continuing combat. Combat is not only slower, but now ever more tedious.

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
    Due to stat/skill changes, combat is extremely clunky and slow paced.
    Don't be fooled by high score voters in here, customization is a joke compared to what this series was once all about.
    It's a piss-poor attempt by a new team who are 120% out of touch with what made people fall in love with the series.

    Will patching fix it?
    In a technical sense, Yes. They might make it not run like rubbish.
    In a gameplay sense? No. The core pillars of the game are flawed. They'd have to start over.

    1/10 Because I can't give Gundam a 0, I love the franchise too much.

    Normally I don't post these sort of things and let people find out for themselves, but DO NOT, i repeat DO NOT buy the new Gundam breaker gameNormally I don't post these sort of things and let people find out for themselves, but DO NOT, i repeat DO NOT buy the new Gundam breaker game below is a list of just hard facts no opinion that just makes this game not worthy of money

    1. Build parts no longer do anything
    2. You cannot upgrade your mobile suit, parts are purely cosmetic
    3. you have 7 side weapons/functions, they are bound to a single slot, so if a leg has 3 skills you have to pick 1
    4. there are currently only 128 suits in the game
    5. the game freezes for split seconds mid combat which breaks immersion
    6. the story line (all 3) combined took 5 hours to complete
    7. every mission is the exact same
    8, your suit always feels flimsy
    9. there are 2 cutscenes for the story in which you get to see your own suit that is all.
    10. The game tries to say there are 3 story paths - they are all identical bar some dialogue that is all.
