T What do these ratings mean?

I love games that have such weird titles... They make you wonder, what the hell did I just buy???

Sadly, you just spent your money on a waaaaay overpriced anime video!!! This game is more of a movie than an actual game, but the FMV are sweet, well-done with decent voice acting.

The characters always look good, from skimpy bathing suits that can be placed on budding 12 year old female robots, to pistol weilding teenagers, the chacters have much of their same designs as the last game. With the addition of a more human charactistics to both Shion's and KOSMOS face.

The music is excellent, both orchestras, and background sound holds up to Sqares level of gameplay. And the controls are mostly the same, with a few changes with the menu, and status bar.

And ROBOTS!!!! Or Gundams.... or whatever there called.

Anyway the biggest flaw in the game has to be that there is NO MONEY in the game.All items must be eared though battling or breaking countless boxes just to find one medpack.

Grr...

This is more of a movie than game, that has a storyline that threatens to shatter the mind of the most thelogical gamer, if they can get past the movies that last over an HOUR! (not kidding) Leave ur PS2 on for a few days with this one....

I've tried to get though this game a few times, and each time, I'm crappin out because I'm spending more time watching than playin. And this is basically how the game runs.

Have fun with this one. If anyone beats it, post the end movie online, so the rest of us can save a few years of our lives.
