New Gundam Breaker has more bad than good, the fascinating story and characters are overshadowed by repetitive gameplay, pricey Gunpla parts, and sloppy controls.

New Gundam Breaker is a good concept, shoddily put together. The story is a trope-fest, battles are confusing and the masses of text are hard to read. There are so few positive points it's not funny.

New Gundam Breaker feels unfinished. The combat system doesn't work, the visual novel is stale and uninspired, and the dating sim doesn't fit. In short: It's a pretty terrible game.

New Gundam Breaker is such a bad game that it makes me feel bad for Gundam fans. I picture a 12-year-old Gundam fanatic that has saved up weeks' worth of lawnmowing mowing money, sitting with a controller hanging loosely in her hand, staring at the screen and crying. This is a game that should never have come to market, regardless of how much hard work went into its creation. To ask anyone to pay money for New Gundam Breaker is outright offensive.

I still can have fun when I was creating my own Gundam model, but the combat part of this game is awful. I can't stand the low frame rates and coarse details, and the number of Gundam models are not satisfying me at all.

Between fumbling through the menus, mashing your way to a choppy and exceedingly easy victory, and clicking through meandering dialogue scenes that hold no weight, you'll find yourself too bored to actually collect all the parts you want to make your perfect Gundam. If you're itching to fight big robots, play Gundam Versus instead. Or, go punch that actual Gundam in Japan (don't do that).

New Gundam Breaker definitely has some great nuanced aspects to its core concept of mix-and-match mech model making, but what it needed was more variety to spice up the gameplay.

You can play New Gundam Breaker only if you are a faithful fan of the series who loves plastic robots more than respects yourself.

Gundam Breaker is an incredibly fun series, unfortunately, the first major English release for it was a rather disappointing entry that suffers from a terrible story mode, lack of engaging combat with an awful performance. It still has some redeeming quality with the customization offered for Gunpla, but this is not enough to overlook its major faults.

New Gundam Breaker could be great, but its numerous technical issues and boring, cliché story make it a difficult game to recommend to any but the most devout Gundam fans.

As an avid robot fan and someone who enjoyed the last game in the series, I really wanted to like New Gundam Breaker. Stiff controls, however, combined with a broken parts system and heavy use of tired MMO-style side quests make this new entry in the series fall hard like a space colony on Sydney. This game made me want to go back and play its predecessor Gundam Breaker 3 instead, which has an English-subtitled version, by the way. I suggest you do the same.

There are some really good things in New Gundam Breaker, but others are terribly wrong. We would recommend playing one of the other far superior Gundam games.

New Gundam Breaker as the latest entry of the Gundam Breaker series has some good points, but more than that it is suffering from graphical and technical issues and superficial gameplay that shouldn’t exist in an Eighth generation game and specially in a Bandai Namco game. The New Gundam Breaker seems to have failed to appear powerful and popular in western market, but if you are a fan of this series, you could have some good time with it. Gundam Breaker is a popular series in Japan but If Bandai Namco want this to become also popular in West, definitely they should work better in the next entries.

Sadly, this is a hard pass for players who covet the older Breaker games. The number of series on offer is a limiting factor and a far cry from the options offered in past games. For anyone who is looking for a fresh take on the series, this is it. I certainly hope that these rough beginnings will lead to better games in the future.

New Gundam Breaker is a game that just can't get out of its own way. For every right choice it makes, a series of bad decisions and technical issues throw away every single positive thing, making it a prime example of a game that needed more development time.

The Gundam Breaker series finally hit the West, but it couldn't have done it in a worse way. New Gundam Breaker is not a bad game at all, but the many issues, such as low mission variety, performance issue, and mediocre story mode, outweigh its best features, mainly the huge amount of Gunpla models and the vast customization possibilities that come with it.

While there’s plenty of the classic Gundam customization here and decent combat to let you try out your creations, New Gundam Breaker’s cookie cutter plot and serious performance issues hold it back.

I'm hesitant to recommend this game at the moment. New Gundam Breaker is beset with technical issues, yet it's possible those will be wrapped up soon. There are some roadblocks to counter even if this game ran perfectly, however.

I'm truly sorry. From the bottom of my heart, I am. I had wished and wished for years that Bandai Namco would give Gundam fans outside Japan a proper way to experience some of the amazing games they've developed in the series. Today, this wish has come true, but like a cursed monkey's paw, it has come with a terrible price. New Gundam Breaker is available in Europe and America, yes, but it is also terrible. It is not fun to play, look at, or think about.
