Way back when, there was a lull in console RPG's - people were waiting for the next Final Fantasy, hurting for a good game, and Sony supplied a unique twist in the original Wild Arms, which gave players a pseudo-post-apocalyptic, pseudo-spaghetti-western environment to run around in.

Unfortunately for Sony, two sequels later they'd run the series into the ground, so they passed it on to XSeed... who happily revived it with the fourth and fifth installments, and have established a pretty fun world.

Moving the series to the PSP, they took some risks: they could have tried to replicate the same gameplay, but they've instead crossed the series up with the "tactics" concept, delivering a relatively deep game with some interesting twists.
