  1. A charming and entertaining Japanese RPG which adheres to the conventions of the genre far too much for its own good, but will still provide many, many hours of entertainment.
  2. Worth the forty bucks IF “Legaia 2” or “Suikoden III” left you hungry for more.
  3. It does everything an RPG should do and does it pretty well, but the lack of innovation is a bit disappointing.
  4. It's likely to be dwarfed by some of the mega-games already in the pipe, but is well worth a lengthy tour by RPG enthusiasts.
  5. Despite the repetitive combat and other shortcomings, I found Wild Arms 3 to be pretty engrossing.
  6. Just isn't interesting enough to overcome its retro-tinged, formulaic gameplay. [Nov 2002, p.196]
  7. Look past the shaky dialogue and you'll find a strong RPG that will especially satisfy fans of the series. [Nov 2002, p.60]

    The story line is in-depth and the development of the characters is well thought out. But the flaws hold this title back from being a top contender in the RPG genre.

    If you can get past the games dated RPG mechanics as well as some of it's design flaws there is a lot of fun to be had with Wild Arms 3. EvenIf you can get past the games dated RPG mechanics as well as some of it's design flaws there is a lot of fun to be had with Wild Arms 3. Even with all it's issues the enjoyable story, western steam-punk fantasy setting, and catchy soundtrack should make up for a lot of the games faults. If your fond of older RPGs then you'll likely have a good time while it lasts. Full Review »
