    Default Wild Arms

    For whatever reason these games have slipped on my radar over the years. I was browsing through my local Craigslist ad and found someone selling Wild Arms 1-4 and it caught my attention. They seem to be in good shape and taken care of, which for me is a plus, I am slightly OCD when it comes to Playstation case and manual condition. Back to my question, are these games fun, good, worth playing? Has anyone here played these and enjoyed them? Anything you'd compare it to?

    I'm not a big RPG guy but I loved the first one when it came out back in '97. Not sure how kind 16 years have been to it though...

    Ive played some of the first game and I really enjoyed it. Its a cool mix of medieval and western art design. I dont know how the other ones are, but you should definitely play the first one.

    Why do people keep using OCD just because they like things neat. This bothers me .

    I've played and beaten all the games except for XF (for PSP), so I would say go for it if you like RPGs.

    Here's a quick rundown of my impressions:

    1: Good but dated, also some of the puzzles are kind of ridiculous so you may want a FAQ. Play it if you don't mind grinding.

    2: Personally my favorite, great music, good characters and a fun story. Translation can be a bit weird sometimes (wah wah wah) but still completely enjoyable.

    3: Traditional turned based battle system, okay to good story but the characters are really fun. Jet Enduro is one of my favorite character designs from the entire series.

    4: Changed over to the Hex system for battles, pretty darn fun the first time you play but the story is kind of blah.

    5: Seems more like a thank you/homage to the fans. Hex system remains and has been improved. Story and characters are good, and world map alone is neat to explore.

    Alter Code F: PS2 Remake of the first game. Given the option I would rather play this than the first game again, I guess it's gotten a bit pricey though. Probably my second favorite game in the series after WA2.

    NOTE: I think it was games 5 and Alter Code F that they started putting in Puzzle Boxes as a side thing to do. Oh my god are the fun if you like puzzles.

    Hope that helps!!

    Well it seems like something I might enjoy. More pros than cons coming from you guys, even if the graphics for the first one are a little dated. Another questions, I know I could research it, excuse my laziness, does anyone know the value of the games offhand? The add is for 1-4 for $70.
