  • Excerpt: Meet the new Show. Same as the old Show. But you'll get fooled (again?) by the updated rosters, the new cover athlete, and the price tag insinuating "new Show.

  • Excerpt: Nevertheless, the game delivers in quite a number of ways. The most apparent of these is the aforementioned battle system. Unlike the almost strictly player vs. enemy structure of past games (that is to say that the player chooses all character actions at once and then watches them play out depending on the reaction speed of everybody on-screen), Wild Arms 4 features a new hex-based arrangement.

  • Excerpt: XSEED's debut title Wild ARMs 4, the American localization of Wild ARMs: The 4th Detonator, is finally here, sporting flashy art, a new battle system, and its share of extras and secrets. But is it worth your gella to go out and grab it? Very likely. Featuring some improvements over some of the series' historical rough spots, Wild ARMs 4 is some of the best gaming the franchise has to offer. Check out Amanda's review, right here.
  • Pros: ups: HEX battle system, gorgeous art, sound, story feed
  • Cons: downs: A few text glitches, some plot & character corniness

Wild ARMs 4

Project COE

  • Conclusion: While in a place, Jude is free to roam around based on the parameters of the area. What that means is based on whether the area is 3D or a 2D side-scroller. Some areas will allow for movement in all directions, and yes, the ability to jump will add some new depth to it as well. Puzzle solving is still important, and when doing so in the side-scroller portions, it almost feels like an old-school RPG revisited. Some areas will actually require a little finesse to pass.

RPG LAND

  • Excerpt: 2006 will be the tenth birthday of the Wild ARMs series. It will also be when Wild ARMs 4 sees a North American release. Series fans and RPG players in general would be doing themselves a favor to honor the occasion by picking up Wild ARMs 4 when it is shipped on January 10. The primary reason for such a recommendation would be the new battle system.

Wild Arms 4

Playstation Illustrated
7 February 2005
  • Excerpt: A boy with mysterious powers somehow tied to a girl with equally mysterious powers and a dying world torn apart by war. Nothing about Wild Arms 4 ’s story really screams “original” or even “unique” – at least when it comes to story. But, in all truth story isn’t what makes Wild Arms 4 worth playing; it’s the mechanics. Visually, Wild Arms 4 shares at least a passing resemblance to Kingdom Hearts .
