There's plenty of action and fan service for long-standing Mobile Suit Gundam franchise enthusiasts to rally around and love with this portable arcade game. One of the great things about Extreme VS-Force is that each of the game's 40 Mobile Suits feels distinct and unique, both in presentation and abilities. And yet, despite the diversity, no one mech feels overpowered when compared to the others. On the whole, there's a strong sense of balance between all the available characters and their abilities.

While the Mobile Suits themselves are well balanced, the game itself feels a little lopsided. The arcade combat is fun in shorter missions and Free matches, but the Team battles can feel a bit drawn out. Players have to switch from more action-based play to a more tactical approach as they try to lead their team to control specific spawn points. It feels a bit like the game is trying to appeal to Mobile Online Battle Arena (or MOBA) gamers, but it comes up a bit short. And since much of the single-player campaign is composed of these Team battles, it's hard not to feel that things get a bit tedious. Luckily, you can take a break from the campaign and dive into some Free matches at any time to mix things up a bit. And for fans of the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise, there's more than enough action and fan service to keep their interest.
