A love letter to mecha fans. Unfortunately a complete lack of any semblance of challenge makes it very hard to recommend to anyone but the most die hard of giant robots fan.

An official version of Super Robot Wars on our PCs is a long-cherished dream, but it's not an experience for everyone. Certainly not for those expecting a deep and challenging strategy game, as almost the entire experience plays on fanservice. Not to mention a roster incapable of giving back the encyclopaedic feeling that an event like the 30th anniversary would require.

Super Robot Wars 30 is not the best generation in its series, but it is the most interesting one for me in recent years. The logical narration which have a good combination with the robot battle. It is a perfect one for most series fans, however it does not have a future framework planning, this series can not change the truth that every new production could be the last one of the series if this situation continues.

If you like mecha anime or even mecha-themed SRPGs, Super Robot Wars 30 provides a strong introduction to one of the longest-running SRPG franchises. It's a great encapsulation of what makes the franchise shine, and it's filled to the brim with fanservice in a way that will warm even the coldest mecha fan's heart. On its own merits, it is a lengthy and enjoyable (if easy) SRPG, but it really shines if you know the source material. It's not for everyone, but if SRW30 is for you, it'll give you everything you could possibly want.

This is the 30th anniversary edition of the Super Robot Wars. Many new systems have been implemented while all the nook and crannies have been improved as well. Take it like festivities if you will, the level grinds has become less stressful but some of the UI feels they’re out of place. It’s one of the best of the series so far and definitely headed the right direction since the release of Super Robot Wars Alpha.

Super Robot Wars 30 is a game that any fan of strategy games and giant robots needs to experience. With a fair amount of represented artwork, a well-written story and well-produced combat animations, finally having a western release of the series is a dream come true.

The two-year development period gives players a variety of options not found in the Super Robot War series. And a great battle in the game will be a big present for mecha fans.

Overall, Super Robot Wars 30 is worth the price of admission and JRPG fans will love the content it has to offer. The story, animation, gameplay, and setting prove that this game is worth celebrating 30 years of the franchise. For those who wish to play this game, they can start first playing the DEMO in either the PS4 or Nintendo Switch to get used to the game’s system and more. Super Robot Wars 30 has shown many, including myself, what it means to be a major gaming franchise for BANDAI NAMCO.
