  1. The style of the game is pure anime, with that Old West thing thrown in, but on the blocky side.
  2. 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.
  3. A solid remake of a classic game.
  4. 77
    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.
  5. The classic gameplay remains largely the same, and although certain elements haven't weathered the years all that well, fans of the series and dedicated RPG junkies will get good mileage out of this one.
  6. At the very least Wild Arms: Alter Code F is as good as its source – though seeing that the original Wild Arms was a decent, but not great PS1 RPG, that perhaps isn't saying much.
  7. Newcomers or devotees to the RPG genre may find some basic value in it, but my feeling is that most players who've been there and done that probably won't want another helping.

    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. Collapse
