"Wild Arms may be a second-tier role-playing series for some, but for me, it's always been more than the sum of its parts. I've been a franchise fanatic since I first heard the opening strains of its spaghetti Western-inspired fanfare 11 years ago, and I've always loved its mix of classic RPG elements and Wild West motifs. When the formula clicks -- as it has in four of the five games in the main series -- it just works for me. And I've been a strategy-RPG nut even longer than I've been a Wild Arms fan, so if anyone's the target for a Wild Arms-based tactical title, it's me."
