>>323708373 Graphically it aged like rotten eggs, but the musics are great and I love RPGs that are full of puzzles. If you can stomach the graphics and the battle sound effects, it's a really, really cool game.
>>323709279 >>323709469 Or you can play the remake, I guess. But the two are different experiences, the remake wasn't just making the exact same dungeons and battle system with upgraded graphics, it's basically a different game on its own with the same story.
And god damn, this world map theme always gives me chills and a boner.
The musics were also redone and it's a 50/50 on which is better regarding the original and remake, but both are fantastic.
It's as middle of the road as you can get. The music is good but the graphics are ugly. There's some fun puzzles in dungeons but they're between boring, brainless fights where you select attack over and over again and watch slow animations play. Story and characters aren't very interesting.
I think you should play the first Wild ARMs at least once, it's a nice experience.
Like many have already said, the graphics are meh in the overworld, but fugly in battle. The battle system is kinda repetitive, but the FP system is a nice way to make it different to other RPGs. The puzzles are something enjoyable (only one or two are completely retarded). The music is fan-fucking-tastic, one of my favorite things of this series. And the story is alright, nothing impressive, but it works.
And if you are going to play the other games in the series, I think you'll enjoy them much more with all the things that got upgraded compared to the first game.
In addition to what else was said, status ailments are a right fucking bitch for a good awhile in that game. Way worse than most jrpgs.
IIRC it stops being a problem after a certain point(either because of accessories or status lock magic, I can't remember), but until then, any battle with something who likes to use them is obnoxious as all fuck.
The trpg spinoff, wild arms xf, is actually somewhat decent. It basically disregards the "western" setting pretty early on, the story sucks, and lategame is a joke once you get overpowered classes, but the early game is pretty balanced and there's some interesting maps.
I haven't played the rest of the series. I particularly hate random battles and particularly care about good gameplay that involves more strategy than just mashing A. Will I like any of the other games?
>>323717652 >I particularly hate random battles and particularly care about good gameplay that involves more strategy than just mashing A. Will I like any of the other games? You can skip battles in WA2, 3 and ACF. The gameplay isn't just mashing A per say because that isn't the best way to deal with enemies, specially in 3.
WA4 and WA5 have a battle system in grids, so they're more tactical oriented.
>>323713826 was it bugged? I swear the chest opening code was random with not a single clue around. It didn't even make a sound when you got the good combination making it impossible to solve without luck or the solution.
>>323720571 Tell that to the vietnamese who managed to translate all Fire Emblem games that were Japanese. Their patches are actually good to boot, translated everything, have no garbled texts, don't crash at the ending and don't make a pirate turn into a madman as the game goes on.
At least FE6 and FE12 have good english translations.
>Play WA3 on PS2 >Get up to around the point where you find out Jet's real name >Memory card somehow fucks up my save >Give up >Two years ago, play it again on PCSX2 >Get up to the point where you get the airship >Somehow PCSX2 fucks up and the next day both my game save and savestates have reverted several hours to the beginning of a previous dungeon >Give up
Some day I'll be able to finish it without my saves getting fucked up.
