Final Breakdown


You've got to be a fan of Tactics-style games to enjoy this - plenty of backtracking to older battlefields and playing around tweaking character and party builds. If you can't stand a certain level of tedium, you might be better served with another title.


The PSP doesn't look much better - but it's telling that just about all the game, except the battle maps, is rendered in 2D.

Sound and Music:

Voice acting? So-so. Music? Stunning as always for the Wild Arms series.


Is it difficult? Depends how fast you move through and how much you level before hitting each area. First game I've ever seen that recommends you walk away from a fight you keep losing to go level up before trying again.

Controls and Interface:

Some odd quirks in the interface - such as constantly clearing out weapon and item equipment choices - make it a bit weird. There's a lot of housekeeping before, and during, each battle.


If you're a hardcore Wild Arms fan, or else someone who really enjoys Tactics-style games, it's a good choice. Otherwise, rent before buying.
