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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Super Robot Wars main franchise finally makes it to western shores via a PC release after 30 years being in existence. it features many famous robot series cameos like from Mobile Suit Gundam and Code Geass, and original characters all rolled into an original story, it also has enough strategic elements that should satisfy fans of mechs and strategy RPGs alike. With music from the Japanese super band JAM Project and animated cinematics, it definitely has that Super Robot Wars feel that has made it famous throughout the years. It is a fun game and don't worry if you don't know every single character that makes a crossover, you can and should enjoy the game without much added previous knowledge.

If you’re a 30 year fan of Super Robot Wars, the latest entry into the saga is something pretty special. No expense was spared bringing crunchy strategy rules and every mecha IP under the sun into one full throttle extravaganza. And even if you are a complete noob like me, this feels like a great entry to the wider world of giant robot anime. I suppose if you are only looking for the most finely honed strategy game and style is meaningless to you, you’re not going to find what you are looking for in Super Robot Wars 30. But give it a chance, it might grab you with a 10 foot long mechanized fist and not let go.

In the end, I think Super Robot Wars 30 is a game you should consider picking up. If you’re a Turn-Based Strategy or Mecha anime fan, then you owe it to yourself to give this a try. As for me, I plan to delve once again into the endless war these heroes fight so that, one day, true peace will once again return to humanity.

It only took 30 years, but a brand-new mainline SRW with a nice handful of recognizable anime IPs got an official worldwide simultaneous release and, it's pretty damn good.

Super Robot Wars 30 is a great crossover of some of the most iconic super robot franchises in japanese entertainment. Still, there's great care in telling a cohesive story and delivering good gameplay, even if it fails to challenge players.

Overall, Super Robot Wars 30 is an excellent tribute to the 30th anniversary of the series. The new mission setup is a bit daunting at first but works well on multiple playthroughs and with the new DLC. Considering the challenges the development team must have faced during the pandemic to get this game done, it’s remarkable how well it all turned out.

Overall, Super Robot Wars 30 is a good addition to the series for fans of the previous titles. While it may not be the type of game I would play that doesn't stop me from appreciating the hard work that has been put into it. From the graphics to the audio and the story, it plays like an anime story that you play through. It is available now for the normal price of 59.99 USD for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows and it is currently on sale on Steam for 44.99 USD.
