Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3's dialogue is occasionally so bad it's hilarious, but more often than not, it's so bad it's just awful. Characters are preachy, overblown anime stereotypes who choose the most inopportune of moments to clench their fists and lay the melodrama on thick. Nearly all of them talk about cliche anime themes such as "the desire for change," "the need to fight for one's beliefs," and "the futility of war." This maudlin dreck would only serve to depress the player if all of it didn't repeat itself several times during a single fight. I don't know how many times I wanted to yell "Setsuna, your mobile suit is an instrument of war, not the reformation of humanity, you idiot." The English dub doesn't do the script any favors, and neither does the Japanese dub. It's still jarring to hear a character quip "Maybe this represents the light within the human heart" after unceremoniously ending the lives of thousands of people. As opposed to the voice acting, the rest of the sound design is merely unremarkable. Sound effects are fitting for a Japanese cartoon about giant robots duking it out, and the music is guitar-heavy instrumental dude rock. All of this is to be expected.
