Been playing Gundam today, some amount and I think I’ll buy it when it comes out. Maybe not day 1, but eventually at least. But I’m not sure if I would recommend it. It has elements that some people would call technical and others clunky. The game will have some kind of tutorial, but it’s not available in the beta and going in the game blind resulted into lots of “what is happening, what I’m doing, how does anything work”. I ended up watching some youtube tutorials, but even after that I feel like a baby who has been told what legs are and how you should be using them. There is so much going on with just simply moving around, constant balancing of meter and canceling attacks into movement into new attacks.
It’s a hard game to properly grasp, but I can see the potential fun of dodging past enemy shots, steering close into melee combo canceled with dodge and finished off by grabbing the enemy with my heat rod. Even with my current very limited skills and rounds filled with getting totally destroyed, I’ve had fun with the beta. Maybe if the tutorial ends up being actually good, I could actually give it a recommendation.
