-Story is a major plus, especially for Macross fans.
-Building and customizing Valkyries is sure to make fans happy
-Newly recorded voicework from original cast is good.
-Quality & volume of newly animated scenes is impressive.
-Easy/Auto-battle modes are great for newcomers/light users.
-Custom soundtrack support.
-In battle, sometimes hard to know what’s going on.
-Controls can be difficult due to switching between 3 modes.
-The many possible actions (ie, attacks, etc) for each mode can make gameplay a little complicated.
Todays issue also has a 9-page Macross 30 special. Most of it is valks/characters/info that has already been revealed. The main new content is a 2-page interview with Miss Macross 30 singer Haruka Chisuga.
