This game kicks ten kinds of ass from here to 150 years from next Sunday. This game follows the Zeta Gundam anime saga pretty faithfully from what I saw. The story takes place in UC 0087, 7 years after the end of the One Year War. You meet up with a lot of old faces and even some new one, and there are TWO gigantic Gundams in here to boot.
The gameplay is pretty standard Strategy RPG fare. The player gets to move his mobile suits, perform an action, then the opponent gets their turn. That all applies to the close-range battles, and then there are the long-range battles.... I can't think of enough good things to say about them. They're really a love-'em-or-hate-'em kind of thing. Do yourself a favor and try this one out; you won't be disappointed.
Hacking-wise, this has been a game I wanted to translate ever since I got started, and now I'm finally getting to. A complete table has been created, and the dictionary encoded table has been dumped. The problem with the actual script lies in the *dumper*. For some reason, Romjuice doesn't want to dump Chapter 3 and Chapter 23. Each chapter has been individually dumped for a total of 170kb (excluding the two chapters I mentioned, which shouldn't be more than 10kb total). If you're interested in translating a couple of chapters, or even all of them, email me.
