G-Saviour is a 2000 video game released in Japan as part of promotion the G-Saviour movie throughout Japan. It was developed by Atelier-Sai and published by Sunrise Interactive. It serves as the movie sequel, taking place after a conspiracy to destroy a newly developed energy formula was stopped by Illuminati fighters.
In Winter U.C. 0223, Side 8 was recognized by the CONSENT-led government as an autonomous region. However, not all the Sides were happy to hear the annoucement since most of them are under CONSENT control. Colonel Bais Bashing of the CONSENT's armed forces secretly bankrolled Project Raven to enhance its military strength.
In U.C. 0224, the Illuminati gets word of Raven's deployment and orders a mobile suit team known as Lightning Squad to investigate what's going on.
The PS2 game provides examples of:
- Dual Boss: Chapter 6 ends with a fight against two automated Reid mobile suits.
- Establishing Character Moment: Reed gets one in the opening sequence when he opts to deploy in the G-Saviour's space mode despite its relative frealty in a ground combat scenario, something reinforced in the next chapter when he opts to stay and fight the enemy mobile suit regiment at the crashed colony instead of retreating back to the mothership.
- Gameplay Grading: The player is graded on their accuracy, remaining health and percentage of enemies destroyed at the end of each chapter. Ranks go from C to S.
- Hopeless Boss Fight: The first fight with Rysis is likely to end with the player getting one-shotted by his beam sword within seconds of starting. Even if the player manages to hit him, he stops losing health when he's down to a third of his health bar. Reed is saved by a timely intervention from the Lightning Squad in the ensuing cutscene and the game proceeds as normal.
- Mythology Gag:
- One Earth-based mission has LS pass through the remains of the colony used in the One Year War in Operation British.
- The reveal of the CAMS-15 Raven is similar to the Mobile Dolls used in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.
- The remains of a wreck MA-05 Bigro and Musai-class warship are found inside Angel Halo.
- Remixed Level: The locations of Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 are revisited as the final and penultimate levels respectively, with much tougher enemies to fight.
- Second Hour Super Power: The first two chapters have you playing as the movie G-Saviour's space mode. It is trashed at the end of chapter 2 by Rysis, after which the Lightning Squad call on the original designer to rebuilt in the more powerful and versatile G3-Saviour.
- The Stinger: The credits are followed by a downbeat talk between Asaka and Reed about the fate of Race over a shot of a coffee cup and the narration promising that while peace has been temporily recovered, the game is only the first installment in the legend of the G-Saviour.
- Surprisingly Good English: Despite no apparent plans to release the game outside Japan, the voice acting is entirely in grammaticaly correct (if rather stilted-sounding) English.
- Warm-Up Boss: Klaus' Spear Head is slow, has no outstanding weapon or ability, and can easily be stunlocked by timing your shots. Just don't try to get into a beam sword fight.
- Wham Line: In the video game:Rysis: Race... The bug is identified... It must be deleted...Reed: Bug...? Raven, is a Mobile Weapon!?
