THE GOOD: -Graphics were OK, but could've been much better -Interesting characters -Battle system
THE BAD: -Music was too repetitive -Storyline, so far, is cheesy -Only 4 playable characters
SUMMARY: Before I bought the game, I had rented it first. I started to play and at first it was rather boring, but got more interesting as the characters started to develop.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought the graphics could have been much better. Let's face it, this could have been done on the PS1. I believe Final Fantasy X was released before that and it had gorgeous graphics. They weren't a total eyesore for this game, but could have been better. The charatcers were also interesting, but their personalities were rather corny. Virgina being the young, eager, I'll-trust-anybody adventurer, Clive being the mature veteran, Jet, the young treasure hunter, and Gallows the priest. I didn't really like Gallows. They also had a cheesy group of rivals that remind me of the Leblanc Syndicate from FFX-2,...
THE GOOD: well the good all depends on how well you understand the gameplay
for some people it's easer to understand and for other it's not so easy to understand
-RPG, style of fight -Length (took me about 50 hours to beat it!!!) -Difficultie (some bosses require lots of thinking and planning, while othors you can kill in one hit, Seriously)
THE BAD: -Graphics (these Graphics are very different that most othor games, only Dark cloud 2 has graphics that is very close to Wild Arms 3) -Sound (sound is another negotiatable one there is only the theme song((after prolauge)) and the ending song are songs that actually have words, all the othor songs are just music((no words)))
SUMMARY: For those who love Final Fantasy X or any other RPG this is a game to take a closer look into.
Again it's very different than any other game you've played. If you under stand the game play, controls and Story line this would be a good game.
definitly Rent it first (this is a game that looks good on the cover but is v...
THE GOOD: The gameplay, the puzzles, most of the music, interesting, the tools, the way you get a very fast view when you wanto look around. Background graphics quiet good.
THE BAD: The character appearance, they could be bigger, and how the gears would disappear when you would try to change them over. And more colour to the game would have been nicer in my opinion. The first and second wild arms was lovely and colourful.
SUMMARY: I loved all the wild arms games and even though this one isnt perfect its still a very good game. I think one thing which may have improved this game and made it something to rave about would have been if the sand could have been turned into an ocean about 3/4 of the way through the game, then you could go and get a ship. I really like games where you have a ship and you travel the ocean. The puzzles were very good in this game, i liked most of the music, and its the type of game which will keep you playing for many hours on end. I havent played this game now f...
THE GOOD: Plot, musical score, graphics (Cel-shaded, some like this, some don't)
THE BAD: Some of the puzzles may leave you baffled (though I never really had any problems)
SUMMARY: Once again we return to Fargaia (Filgaia) in this clasic RPG. Those who have played the past Wild ARMs will know the score. A dying planet, mainly made up of wasteland. In this adventure we join up with four 'drifters' (those who dare leave their homes and venture out into the surrounding desolate lands). Though they join together for their own reasons soon they are all fighting for one thing - the survival of Fargaia. Standing in their way are three mysterious beings known as the Prophets (Malik Bendict, Melody Vilente and their leader Leehalt Alceste), but are they, the least of their troubles? Can you survive the wasteland? Find out by buying this brilliant RPG
The game itself is good though the fact that it is entirely cel-shaded which might be enough to put some people off. The theme of this RPG as with a...
THE GOOD: The battle systems ease of use and the diffrent forms of transportation, cell coloring was great. I really liked the characters unique personalities.
THE BAD: That backround music was irratating that whishling more so than the rest of it I turned of the sound so could play the game. The leveling up system could been more uniform.I did not like the search system having to find a certain person to give you the exact location became very teadious. The colasping stairs in nightmare castle were almost impossible harder than the last boss battle.
SUMMARY: In conclusion the game was good but far from the standards I expected. The story line hasn't changed very much has it, from Wild Arms 1&2 get creative. The most significant letdown was the conclusion of the game (there was no payoff) You don't see Filgaia reborn the drifters don't find fame or fortune instead they empty their guns and get shot. better luck next time. Syner
THE GOOD: Easy battle system to get used to, and nice cell-shading graphics.
THE BAD: Very repetitive story[that never seems to end], a boring battle system[smashing 'X' to attack over and over agian], and a escape feature would be nice.
SUMMARY: Well I had forgotten how hard the ending of WA2 was and bought WA3. Now don't get me wrong this is a good game[even though I still havn't seen the ending]. At first I couldn't put it down, but after about the 3rd plot twist[staying on the same tack, saving the world, but changing the villians]. It got very repetitive, not to mention the final battles are very hard to beat, if you havn't taken the time to level up[10-20+ hrs].
Anyway if you're into a game that gets very repetitive and boring, and is impossible to beat. Wild Arms 3 is your game.
THE GOOD: The gameplay is easy to learn. I also like upgrading ARMs. Unique to rpg standards of where you just purchase weapons and armor. But it is VERY expensive.
THE BAD: The Force Energy on the overworld. I would also prefer an escape option during battles, as well.
SUMMARY: This game isn't really too bad a game. Lots of bosses (my number one favorite thing in rpgs), good gameplay set up. It's one of those games to tide you over until the next final fantasy game comes out. Also, I've noticed that the characters look somewhat simalar to a few final fantasy characters. Virginia-Aeris. Clive-Auron. Jet-Cloud.(This one is really easy to point out.) Gallows-Barret.(Probably Gallows is the least obvious.) Anyway, Wild Arms 3 has good polished graphics. It's character interactment is alright, too.
THE BAD: Puzzles get repetitive Random Encounter System could use some work Some bosses are almost impossible
SUMMARY: To start this off, allow me to say that I am by no means a big fan of RPG's that deal solely with puzzle like dungeons, and ironically enough, that is exactly what Wild Arms 3 is. Your cookie cutter role playing game that advances through the story at a good enough pace, and at the same time sending you from dungeon, to dungeon, solving different but albeit the same sort of puzzles. Sounds a bit bland, I know, but allow me to elaborate on them, and also say that, that is not necessarily a bad thing.
For one, the story is captivating. All 4 of your main characters have their own story to tell, and why they are on the quest at hand. Each character has something in common with the other, and the interaction between them is done perfectly. Revelations about their past and relationships with one another are further revealed in the story, however...
Graphics: The new cell shading here looks great and although the 2D sprites from Wild Arms are nostalgically missed, the terrible attempt at 3D graphics from Wild Arms 2 should just as soon be forever forgotten.
Sound: There is still no voice acting so you are yet again provided with an opportunity to improve your reading skills. The in-battle sounds are all pretty similar and the laser zaps and gun blasts all get reptetive after a while. The soundtrack however lives up to its expectations. Known for its musical excellence, the western style music is very well done here.
Story: This is where I lose it. I was bored out of my mind with this story. Every Wild Arms game bases the main plot on the same concept and when the third time comes around, I'm just a little fed up. It really wouldn't hurt them to try and be a little innovative with their storyline and go for something new.
Gameplay: The controls are a cinch to learn and any rpg veteran will feel right at home. There are many challen...
