Gundam Side Story 0079: Rise from the Ashes – Second Opinion

Well, this isn't going to be much of a review on my part because I agree with Chi completely. Gundam Side Story 0079 is a cool game that could have been great had it just lasted longer. I must say though—while I was playing, I truly felt like a part of the war effort against the Zeon forces. I thought the developers missed an opportunity to make the missions more interesting (which of course would have made the game longer and more involving). In fact, the game never really pushes the envelope conceptually, but it's hard to complain about a game that does so many things right. And as Chi stated in his review, the best part of Gundam Side Story is the authenticity of piloting the Mobile Suits. Being a part of the White Dingo team, the war-torn environments, the awesome weaponry—it's all so beautifully realized. It's for this reason I keep playing the game over and over again.

Gundam Side Story 0079: Rise from the Ashes – Review

The most surprising thing about Side Story 0079 is the way it looks. While being based on one of the most popular anime of all-time, it doesn't look anything like its animated counterpart. Colors aren't typically bold and vibrant. Also missing-in-action are anime trademarks like physics-defying hairstyles and wide-eyed facial features in the character designs.
