  1. Exceptional battle systems, enemy encounter rates, an 'epic journey' with more twists than a pretzel and a creatively represented story... This is bound to be loved by both RPG fans and those few who hated RPG's for the obnoxiously random enemey encounters.
  2. A no-brainer recommendation. The story moves along nicely, and the battles load quickly and provide you with enough strategy to stay reasonably interesting.
  3. Well-presented, deep and involving.
  4. The graphics are superb, the gameplay is fun and the overall package is amazing.

    I loved Wild ARMs 3. It's a wonderful example of a great sequel and a great game, and I would recommend it to any fan of console RPGs. Since Squaresoft did the translation, even the purists should have few gripes.
  6. Although the plot wasn’t a very outstanding feature, the gameplay outside and within battles remain strong and clearly define the game.

    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 »

    This game features wild, nonstop action mixed with a respectable battle engine, it's just really hard sometimes.
