Assault Gunners HD Edition is a mech game that, while it might scratch your mech itch slightly, it doesn’t hold up as something to get invested in. It was built for the Vita and is best if it stays on the Vita. Taking several cues from Armored Core, it doesn’t reach the height it sets out to with boring stages, simplified customization, non-threatening enemies, short missions, and a story that does not capture the imagination.
In 2018, though, it feels absolutely barren next to the PlayStation 4’s strong first-party, third-party, and indie lineups. I don’t want to slam Assault Gunners too much, as I’m sure a lot of time and love went into its creation, and the game may certainly be someone’s jam. Yet this is just one mecha-anime dream I want no part in.
Much like a relic from a forgotten age, Assault Gunners HD Edition struggles to find its place in today's gaming landscape. There isn't anything wrong with dozens of missions centred on destroying anything that moves. Really, it's the charming simplicity that helps keep this shooter afloat. The main problem is that there just isn't any depth, nuance, or fun. Without those qualities, the game is unable to form an identity. Few people are willing to invest their free time into such an uninspired blast-a-thon.
