From the Hand of a Golem

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: A mysterious girl falls out of the sky in a golem's arm, and the search for Johnny Appleseed begins in the latest installment of the Wild ARMs series. Wild ARMs 5 marks the return of the HEX battle system and draws much more on the roots of the series than did its predecessor, which lacked many elements seen in the games before.

Elvis Has Left the Building

  • Excerpt: While many games introduce protagonists still crawling along on the lowest tier of skill and station, few are so cruel as to arm their heroes with nothing but a mundane old shovel.

Wild ARMs 5

Playstation Illustrated
10 June 2008
  • Excerpt: As I previously stated in my preview, the Wild ARMs series is one that I always seem to forget about, yet it is one that I always enjoy when a new one comes out. Whether this has to do with my like for "quirky" games or the game's old West setting is anyone's guess. Wild ARMs 5 carries on the legacy developed by past games and delivers an overall fun RPG experience. Wild ARMs 5 isn't going to dazzle you, though at the same time, it doesn't look all that bad either.

Review – Wild Arms 5

videolamer
30 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Wild Arms 5 is an RPG to look into if you don’t mind a weak plot. It has some challenging parts, a decent battle system, some fun puzzles, and is long enough to entertain. I wouldn’t recommend it over, say, Persona 3 – but it is far better than Wild Arms 4, and a fun game throughout.

PSX Extreme
1 October 2007
  • Excerpt: If you're surprised to see continued consistent support for the PS2, you really shouldn't be, considering there are 130 million consoles worldwide. Many developers and publishers have already pledged more titles for the PS2 well into 2008, which means we'll be seeing a lot more games...and probably, a lot more RPGs.

Expert Review

Realm of Gaming
17 September 2007
  • Excerpt: It has been 10 years since the creation of the Wild ARMs franchise by Sony and Media Vision Entertainment. With that comes a special anniversary edition of the game including an 80-page art book. This only has one print run, so once they are gone, they are gone. Wild ARMs 5 has a completely independent story from the other games allowing newcomers to pick up and play without having to be concerned about being lost along the plot line.
