Kidou Senshi Gundam Seed on SuperCheats.com
Gundam Seed Rengou vs ZAFT
#=================================================================#

In the future world of the Cosmic Era, 
science has enabled humanity to explore both inner and outer space.
Genetic engineering has created a new breed of superhuman Coordinators,
and given birth to new resentments and prejudices that have split 
the human race in two.

This is the world of Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny,
in which the miracles of technology 
have unleashed the horrors of hatred and war.
Now a new generation of heroes must struggle 
to find the right path through the chaos of battle.

Please donít copy any of the information in this faq as your own work 
without asking,I put alot of effort in this faq 
so that people understand the game a bit more.
Stealing desmotivates me to continue submitting information.

Also this is my very first time writing a faq =), 
please donít mind my grammatical errors and some excessive use of caps-lock.
Some of the attacks listed in this faq isnít the correct name, 
I did that to point out what it does. Anyway enjoy the faq.

P.S you can use CTRL + F to search for each section.

Section 5:

Tips/Advice

Iím not a pro myself, but Iíll try to give advice anyway.

1. Donít go for block, go dash away
2. Attack the enemy when they are attacking 
(I assume you dodge their attack first)
3. Try to anticipate what the enemy does
4. Itís not ďWho gotís the most powerfull suitĒ who wins,
but the person whoís got the skills and brains.

That was my little advice I wanted to share, hope it helps.
