Game description: In the future, rebel space colonies launch a brutal war of independence with a series of coordinated orbital strikes against Earth. The chaotic assault signals the dawn of a new age of combat and the ultimate instrument of warfare is born, the Mobile Suit. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 combines the devastating power of the Mobile Suit, the rich legacy of the Gundam universe and the furious Tactical Action game play of the Dynasty Warriors series. The game thrusts players into incredible battles against legions of enemy Mobile Suits on distant planetary surfaces and in the far reaches of outer space. For the first time, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 lets players engage in melee battles against colossal enemies such as the Psycho Gundam. The massive Psycho Gundam can quickly reconfigure their bodies into titanic mobile fortresses which can move with remarkable speed. However, highly-trained pilots can utilize their own Mobile Suit's speed, agility, and of course firepower to defeat these deadly juggernauts. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 also includes new stories featuring mecha from the latest Gundam anime, plus mecha from Char's Counter Attack and more. With mecha parts collected throughout the course of the game, players can adapt a Mobile Suit which can be piloted into combat.
Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is a tactical action-oriented hack and slash video game based on the Gundam anime series, and the sequel to 2007's Dynasty Warriors: Gundam.

Occasional Assertion Failed error while loading a mission; appears to be random as sometimes it happens several times in a row and sometimes not for several hours. Otherwise, the game runs great and completely error-free., Game has surprisingly low system requirements; on above hardware, runs completely smoothly without overclocking. Sev7en77

Runs fine with MTVU enabled. Still testing video settings but have over 10 hours of playtime with no issues (around 4 hours with internal native resolution and 14 hours with 3x native internal resolution. There are some extremely minor visual bugs but only in menus. Once in a battle/mission I haven't noticed any issues.
