  1. While far from perfect, this game exudes the same charm that made Wild Arms such a cult phenomenon, and those who can look past its occasional shortcomings will find Alter Code F to be a classic to be treasured for years to come.
  2. While not as modern as some other famous series (ala Final Fantasy X), it's still a great RPG game in its own right, and fans of the genre shouldn't miss this one.
  3. Raises the bar from what to expect from Media Vision, and leaves a lot for Wild Arms: the 4th Detonator to live up to.
  4. The style of the game is pure anime, with that Old West thing thrown in, but on the blocky side.
  5. Old-school charm aside, the game’s story, characters and loads of goodies are enough to hook anyone interested in a role-playing game with a lot of heart.
  6. It seamlessly combines a fantasy setting with a Wild West motif that makes the game enjoyable to play through.
  7. My suggestion is that this game should definitely be purchased, but if you're playing "Dragon Quest VIII," wait a couple of months after finishing it to play Wild Arms Alter Code: F, otherwise you're simply not being fair to yourself or to this great game.

    It's a little linear, a little easy, and a little unattractive, but the characters still have a lot of personality, the dungeons are actually fun to navigate, and there's enough extra content here to keep you busy for quite some time.
  9. A solid remake of a classic game.
  10. 78
    Players new to the series, or looking for a more cerebral RPG, should stay away from WA:ACF. The battle system is rather simplistic and the plot rather too cliché to derive much fun from if you're not looking for something quite that barebones.
  11. Bizarre localization conundrums aside, this is a solid game through and through. It has more charm and character than a vast majority of RPGs being released these days and gives us a fresh new take on an already-innovative game from years ago.
  12. 79
    This game is still great overall. Story, sound and battle mechanics are still as nice as I remember them.
  13. Wild ARMS Alter Code: F contains too many technical and presentation missteps to be considered a classic worthy of the hallowed halls of RPG Valhalla, but coasting along on story and style alone takes it far.
  14. 80
    It retains enough of the classic charm to keep the veterans of the series happy, while adding enough of change to peak the interest of newcomers.

    The original Wild Arms is my favorite game by far, so when Alter Code: F arrived, I almost wet myself.... Until I bought the game. While The original Wild Arms is my favorite game by far, so when Alter Code: F arrived, I almost wet myself.... Until I bought the game. While story, graphics, and certain parts of the game have been enhanced, I was disappointed with other parts of gameplay that have been taken out from the first one. For instance, the amount of items to collect and how to collect them are seriously lacking. Full Review »
