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.

A musou-like action game, a bit repetetive and easy. Perfect just for the fans of Gundam and gunpla models.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

New Gundam Breaker had the elements to be a good game, but the technical and game design flaws drastically ruin all its potential.

Ultimately, New Gundam Breaker does little to continue the good faith the past few Gundam games have worked so hard to garner. It's a charming game at times, and its characters are refreshingly simple. That's not enough to save it from itself, though, and the gameplay is well below what a game based entirely on building and piloting a Gundam should be. Hardcore fans will likely want to pick this one up simply because it has Gundam in the name, but for anyone else, this one should probably be avoided.

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.

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.

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).

There are so many issues in New Gundam Breaker that it manages to be the worst thing an anime game can be – a title with the sole positive being the fact it's Gundam. Combat is boring, repetitive, with a targeting system that manages to be frustrating. Even if bland gameplay is not a problem, so many of the mechanics have needless limits or seem pointless. Throw in a generic story that is about as forgettable as they come and it feels less like a game Gundam fans will love, something that has been true for previous entries, and instead a rushed title with whatever they could toss together at the last second.

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