For me, the Wild Arms series has been one that has faded away from my attention ever since I enjoyed Wild Arms 3 released in 2002. I'm hoping the PSP edition of Wild Arms will give me a jolt to favour the series once again. In the latest release Media Vision has changed up the gameplay while staying faithfully original atmosphere. Wild Arms presents a unique blend of medieval science-fiction action with a Western setting. Like Final Fantasy the world is build from a combination of technology and medieval weaponry that sets the plate with overly dramatized storylines.
The new battle zone in Wild Arms XF takes place like most strategy RPG's, on a map. The twist in Wild Arms XF is that the map is hexagonal based and not a straight square grid. The combat isn't as deeply rooted in strategy as other titles, but it has a lot of customization and a plethora of options to consider before engaging in battle. Initially Wild Arms XF can feel overwhelming with the amount of job classes and associated magic and weapons."
