Sweet… my copy of Super Robot Wars Z II Hakai Hen finally came in the mail today (ordered it from AmiAmi). I also managed to borrow a really beat-up PSP to play it ^^;. And I mean the PSP is REALLY beat-up… scratches everywhere, dings and dents, slightly cracked screen, a lot of dust inside the screen, UMD door crooked, and all sorts of stuff but it doesn’t matter since I am still enjoying the game. Truth be told, I am just two stages before going on my FIFTH PLAYTHROUGH in ZII (completed the scenario chart 100%). You see, I ordered my copy of the game since release but since it was taking awhile and I already got hold of the PSP so I kinda got impatient… and yea ^^;. Anyway, I LOVE THIS GAME! Still haven’t finished the first game yet but oh well…
Who is suprised that my favorite Gundam in this game is Exia? >_> Anyway, a little experiment I just did with Setsuna…
– Melee stat 400 (+30 with Lelouch’s buff)
– Full 15-bar upgrade; Trans-AM at 8600
– Ace Bonus: 1.5x damage to any unit who is unfortunate enough to sport a GN drive of any sort
– Seishin: Soul and lock-on.
Vs. Alejandro “bling bling” Corner
– Full 90,600 HP
– Daunted to 50 morale
I apologize if my photos offended your eyes and here’s a demo video of Exia if you wanna see what’s going on.
Overall, I find this game to be a bit on the easy side (missed 2 SR points on first run, got all SR points with ease on every following run). Lvl.99 final boss is a joke. Still… this game is really addicting! Like all SRW should be. Graphics are just stunning… the fluid animation here is either on par or even superior than the animations on PS2’s SRW Z. None of the youtube videos do it any justice. Even on my fourth run, I am still enjoying most of the scenarios. The only downside is that there are too many series and too little deployment spots >_<. A tri-system or partner system would’ve been nice…
Would also love to talk about the awesomeness of Shin Getter Armageddon, Gurren Lagann, Dancouga, Code Geass and co. being involved but that would stretch this post to no end. So yea, this game was partly to blame for my earlier disappearance ^^;. Can’t wait for Saisei Hen!
