Best Gundam Games

Control your mecha and fight giants with your laser sword and guns. Here is the list of 12 amazing Gundam games you can play. The games are in no particular order as each game offers its features and stories to follow.

If you have watched the Gundam series, then you replay the exact adventure playing the main character but with your taste of choice. Flying through the sky and shooting lasers at the aircraft made me drop my jaw when I was a kid because no other games did such a thing at that time. 

There is also a tactical battle unlocked after you complete the main mission. 

Tactical battle mode allows you to play as a different character with a different mission. I know from today’s game comparison that it has been outdated, but a true Gundam fan will love how the game progresses and unfolds nostalgia.

This game will be a treat if you are into building a plastic Gundam. Gunpla is the short form of the Gundam Plastic model, and just like swapping and switching parts of the Gundam plastic model in real life, New Gundam Breaker allows you to replace parts and weapons. 

New Gundam Breaker has nothing massive out of this world story like other previous games. It’s a light-hearted story of high school characters of Gunpla academy, where they battle out their Gundam Plastic model to complete missions and progress stories.

From piloting Gundam, understanding Gundam loadouts to assisting your team, Mobile Suit Gundam extreme vs. maxiboost might be overwhelming to newcomers. But once you get the hang of combat mechanics, maneuvering our suit smoothly within the arena will feel like second nature. 

Choose amongst the raster of 180 playable Gundam models divided into teams. Figuring out the best character might be daunting, but the game soon works on your play style when you know the right character to choose. 

Besides online mode, there is a branch battle mode similar to arcade. Players battle enemies in eight stages and a boss at the end of eight battles. There is also a single-player maxiboost adventure mode that is equally exciting to play.

It’s an extremely rewarding game with a steep learning curve, both online and offline. My advice is to learn the controls on single-player mode before jumping online.
