Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS, the tenth game in the Gundam VS series, is the most popular home and portable console fighting game of this generation in Japan. It's also practically unheard of in the West. And while those outside of Japan may think that Extreme VS is nothing more than a cheap tie-in game, leeching off the success of its brand name, it really is a lost gem that gamers the world over are missing out on.

Extreme VS is not like most 2D fighting games—or 3D fighting games, for that matter. It shares much more in common with Sega's Virtual On than Street Fighter, except for in one major category: polish.
