Mobile Suit Gundam - Gundam VS Gundam Next Plus Impressions part 5

New Mobile Report Gundam Wing

NEW Gundam Deathscythe Hell
 Eh, it's alright. It's terrible at long range, but in close range, it's a beast. I kinda like its Extreme VS incarnation(Which is, actually, its Endless Waltz version) version better as it has more tools.

Gundam Epyon
 It retains the "Slash in each direction" type of attack from Extreme VS, and it has added functionality to the beam whip. I quite like it, it's missing the System Zero mode that they added in Extreme Vs, but in this game... I think it really doesn't need it. Fun to use.

NEW Tallgeese 1
 Wow. I was expecting something completely different to the Tallgeese 3 from Extreme Vs... it's actually pretty similar, just missing the Beam Whip attacks. Its melee is terrible, and it has a very particular way of boosting that takes a while to get used to. It has a great long-range game, still I'm not a fan.

Wing Gundam Zero
 Basically, the same as it was in Extreme VS. A good unit that works well at any range, particularly, long range. Even it's Assist is a Gerobi beam!

New Mobile Report Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz

Wing Gundam Zero
 Whoa, slightly more different than I expected! For starters, it has infinite "Jump out of homing" subweapon, which is pretty dang awesome, then, the charge weapon is the Gerobi beam, which can target up to two targets and can be charged up to... three levels. It's a pretty neat unit.

NEW Altron Kai
 It's what I expected, an alternative to the Dragon Gundam in Extreme Vs. It's actually a lamer version, the Dragon Gundam kept the best moves the Altron had, and gave it a Firebreath projectile, all the electrifying flags, and what have you. Maybe when the game was released, Altron wasn't too bad, but when you have the Dragon Gundam, there's no need for it... Still, I'd like to see a Wufei Mobile Suit in Extreme Vs, just not this one.


After War Gundam X

 It's almost exactly as it's on Extreme VS, same gameplan, same toolset, same everything, back when it was a 2000 anyways. It's a pretty solid unit, nice damage output, and great at mid range.
