Personal review
The second game in the "SD Gundam World: Gachapon Senshi"-series makes many things better than the first game. The playability of the one-player mode has drastically improved. The CPU makes its turns much faster, the difficulty level of the action combat between units is better balanced. It was much easier to get good results than in the first Gachapon Senshi game. And if you are still not able to beat the CPU in those fights there is the option to use the AUTO mode for fights, in which the CPU fights for you. The game features more maps (30 instead of 10), more units and a few more "fields" like moon craters or factories, thus also improving in quantity. All this said, the game still plays very similar. The graphical upgrades are marginal. The fights are easier, but still much too fast and not really fun to play manually. Although its not nearly as annoying as in its predecessor, the game would still have worked better as a pure strategy game without the action fights. The two-player game again is very solid and fun. My biggest disappointment with this game is the fact that there is still not a campaign mode or a real goal. You can choose every map individually from the very beginning, you can customize army size and starting money. After playing two maps I felt that I had seen everything there is.
