Media Vision's Wild ARMs XF is a bit of a departure for the Western-themed (note the capital "W") RPG series. Sure, it's the first one released for Sony's PlayStation Portable. More than that however, Wild ARMs XF is the first game in the franchise to strip away world exploration and questing, focusing instead on the PSP-friendly strategy RPG genre. While fans will surely be happy to step once again into the world of Filgaia, results are generally mixed as solid core gameplay mechanics are balanced primarily by some questionable design choices.
