HonestGamers
18 November 2007
  • Excerpt: A dry, hot wind blows across the untouched wastelands. Tumbleweeds dance across the ground, lizards skitter across the parched earth, and a young, blue-haired man eyes the open fields, his heart filled with hope.

  • 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..

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.

  • Excerpt: Is Filgaia ever not dying? Apparently it just can’t have health and strength long enough to make a video game, so here we are saving its barren ass again, with a different set of loveable misfits.

Wild ARMs 5

  • Pros: Western inspired soundtrack, inventive combat mechanics.
