Excerpt: No one’s ever accused me of being smart, but when it comes to buying videogames, I do my homework; check out the reviews, compare prices, learn all there is to learn. But not this time; Wild Arms 4 was bought on a whim, and life’s all the better for it.
Excerpt: Five hours into Wild Arms 4 , there’s a scene that gets right down to the heart of what the game is about. The young protagonist, a boy named Jude, mentions the word ‘evil’ and it inspires some of the others traveling with him to lecture him on how limited his perspective is.
Conclusion: Despite a storyline and characters that are less than rewarding, the rest of WA4 's gameplay so makes up for it that this is a game worth checking out on the merits of its battle system and exploration alone. Easily one of the best RPGs on the PS2.
