Each faction has their own models, or types, of Mobile Suit. Each has its own speciality and purpose. The two warring forces described in game are the E.F.F (Earth Federation Forces) and The Principality of Zeon. Many Mobile Suits that make an appearance in this game are from the very first Gundam series. During gameplay, it is possible to customize mobile suits ranging from color to weapons.
As with other shooter games on the system (such as Red Steel), the Wii remote is used to aim/shoot, while the nunchuk's control stick is used to move around. The Z button is used to jump/dash while the C button is used to lock-on to nearest enemy. The B button on the remote shoots the weapon on hand, and the minus button switched between weapons. Pressing the A button goes into melee mode, drawing your mobile suit's melee weapon. Swinging the remote vertically and horizontally attacks. Along with the shooter element, you also fight alongside up to two AI-controlled allies. Pressing the "1" button switches between nine different squad formations.
The story in this game follows the events that take place during the Universal Century, in the year 0079, covering the conflict of the original Mobile Suit Gundam anime, from the perspective of a team of rookie Mobile Suit pilots. There is also an ace pilot mode allowing for play as memorable characters from the Gundam metaverse such as Amuro Ray and Char Aznable.
