Mobile Suit Gundam - Gundam VS Gundam Next Plus Impressions part 7

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed

Strike Gundam
 It's just like Extreme Vs, but instead of having de IWSP pack, it has a really weak assist. I love it anyways!

NEW Aegis Gundam
 Compared to the tolerable Kira and the insufferable Shin, Arthrun always gets very little representation when compared to them... but just like Extreme VS, his Mobile Suit is really, really good. Has very good melee, a lot of projectile tools, including a gerobi beam, and a Mobile Armor mode. And it's just a 1000 cost unit. Its cons lie in its very low HP and a somewhat unreliable assist.

Duel Gundam
 Unlike Extreme Vs, it can purge the Armor at will(This was, luckily, added back in Maxi Boost). With the Full Shroud armor on, it behaves just as it did in Extreme Vs, albeit without the sub weapon that had Blitz Gundam following it behind. Without the armor, it becomes easier to cancel and chain melee moves together, becomes faster, and changes its projectile toolset. Sadly, as it was the case with Extreme Vs, I didn't like it much, its a bit boring, but being able to purge the armor at will makes it a tad more fun to use.

Providence Gundam
  Whoa. WHOA. It's much, much different, and much more fun to use. It has excellent melee, it can enter a "free flying" mode, that consumes boost, but makes showering the enemy with beams much easier and it can also shoot from all funnels simultaneously or rapid fire with the beam rifle as its charge weapon. I like it, I like it a lot.

Freedom Gundam
 It's fairly similar to Extreme Vs, but being a 3000 cost in this one has its perks... it has excellent mobility, far superior to Extreme Vs, with the addition of Seed Mode, that makes it even faster. Really cool.

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny

Strike Freedom Gundam
 The king of all Gerobis has... no Gerobi beams. Actually, it has a Gerobi-based attack, but it can only be unleashed during Seed mode, and it's a charge weapon. Not gonna lie, even though it has the SEED weapon, like Freedom, compared to how it plays in Extreme Vs, this one is really, really lame.

Impulse Gundam
 Bummer, I knew it didn't have the Silhouette change, but man, is it lame. It does have a rather cool attack where it throws a beam boomerang and follows up with the sword, but otherwise? Not too interesting. It can go into "ship" mode, like Victory Gundam, and just like the Victory Gundam, it's completely useless.

Destiny Gundam
 I'm pretty sure it's exactly the same as it's in Extreme Vs, which means it has a ton of tools and works nicely at any range. Shin doesnt' deserve such a good machine.

NEW Akatsuki Gundam
 This being Destiny''s tribute to Hyaku Shiki, which I really really like, I had high hopes for this one, and it's alright, not as fitting to my style as I had hoped to. It has two modes, a basic beam rifle-beam sword for mid-close range combat and a funnel long-range only mode. In both modes it can absorb beams, just like in the series! Still, it looks really cool, I'd like to see it back

Bonus

Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket

Zaku II Custom
 Almost exactly the same as it is in Extreme Vs, instead of the Santa dummies it has a hilarious move in which it throws its body against the enemy!
