Wild Arms 3
Heres a game for you
If you are a RPG fan, prepare to have your mind blown. this game is one of those games that you will have a hard time putting down. I think I'll explain each aspect i thought was great.. and some I thought was a pain (but hey, many games have some kind of pain in them). Graphics: 9/10 Graphics are anime style. therefor, there are some scenes that have lines, and some that blend flawlessly. The characters designs are made to look life like as anime characters can be. Characters: 10/10 Characters in this game are made not only good designed, but also have a solid background. You find out where each comes from the beginning and how they act, but one you only see how he acts... you find out where they're from (no spoilers here. sorry.). Most of the time, when a game has good character background, you tend to stay with them so you can see how they grow. So.... get to growing! Fights: 8/10 The fighting system is unique. Simply put. When you start to enter a fight, you can choose either to avoid it or fight. There are even back attacks where you not only can't avoid it, but also lose a turn. Now... you can't avoid every fight, so you have to find a way to increase your avoiding ability (remember, no spoiling the fun). I will give you a hint: look for two things.... thats all I am saying. You can also fight on horseback and on your sandcraft.... however... the sand craft battles are... well..... I'll let you find out. Storyline: 10/10 This games storyline is so involving, you may find it hard to stop playing. It can be simplified into a few sentences... but then.... why play when you know the story, so I'll make it brief. You start off on a train, then something happens, and the girl in the group runs to the front. There, you find three guys, a guy with glasses, a guy jumping in through the window, and a guy thats already in there. Then you choose which one you want to go back and see where they found out about the train and its 'precious cargo' (why else would 2 guys try and rob the same train... oh, and no spoilers). Controls: 8/10 Controls are a little difficult to learn at first. You walk the same as normal, using the L control stick to run, and the directional buttons to walk, and pressing circle (using default controls I think), you can run using the directional buttons. Using square on the world map allows you to search an area for something (dungeons, towns, items) Overall: 10/10 No matter how much of a gamer you are.... if you like RPGs, this game will have you playing for hours. I know... because I got it ordered right now because someone stole my other one and i played it until i got sleepy. If you get this game, have fun! You made a great decision!
not as good as the others
Wild Arms is one of the best RPG series out there, but 3 falls short of that just a little. I want to start out and say that once you encounter an enemy there is no escaping it (however you can avoid them). They also give you the choice of using auto battle but it is more trouble than it is worth. The storyline however does not fall short at all. It seems the demons are trying to finish what they couldn't in 1, although it seems the same in many ways the storyline seems to throw multiple curveballs in your direction. I actually enjoyed the music from 3 but it seems it still cannot beat one. Another thing that I found quite useless and annoying was the sandcraft battles it really seems that they had no point at all. However the horseback battles are really fun and cool. I am only giving this a 9 for the 2 reasons. 1 it seems to drag on at times and 2 The decector system in this one is annoying as heck. But if you are a fan of Wild Arms you will love it, if you like RPG's you will love it. It is a a good game and is well worth it for it's price.
