Yet another one of those “Let’s mix all those bigass robot anime series into one universe, get them to fight against one another, and we’ll write the story as we go along!” game. OK, maybe not quite, but this is yet another iteration of Super Robot Wars, in which you command an army of bigass robots fighting against bigass robots.
I don’t like these games much, but the part where these games shine is the story. Maybe my comment above was snarky, but they do put a lot of thought into why Ryouma from Mazinger Z is suddenly in love with Rei Ayanami from Evangelion.
I swear, this sounds like a crappy fanfiction from hell…
Note: Ryouma is the Hero of GETTER ROBO and Rei Ayanami isn’t actually IN this game, not to mention Cross series Crushes is the most they ever get into
The game should be fully playable in English, front to back, but the Character and Robot databases, as well as the Karaoke mode, remain in Japanese. As such, it is marked as “Incomplete” for RHDN’s purposes. Further, this is very much a *beta* patch, so be sure to familiarize yourself with the known issues in the readme.
