If you remember the good ol' days of the original PlayStation, you may have been – and might still be – a die-hard role-playing aficionado. The debate can rage as to which system is the king of RPGs (SNES or PS1), but in my eyes, and as much as I adore the SNES, it's a no-contest.
And while Wild ARMs 2 didn't get as much critical praise as the original, it was still a wicked fun RPG, if I remember correctly. The first title released before the likes of Final Fantasy VII and, along with Suikoden , was one of the first RPGs for the PlayStation. The second changed things up a bit and offered a bit more in the way of action, but it was still a classic, traditional RPG (as most all of them were back then). And now, as noted by Examiner.com , the ESRB has rated Wild ARMs 2 and that can mean only one thing…yep, it has to be coming to the PlayStation Network for download. And speaking of the first title, you can always pick that up on the Network; it has been there since late 2007, and it's well worth the price of admission if you've never played it. Both are excellent for old-school RPG fans and although I own both (c'mon, you knew I did), I know many gamers out there don't. If you love the old turn-based system and want a good story with likable characters, you can't go wrong with either Wild ARMs title, in my opinion.
It seems the PSN is getting a little RPG-happy these days. Not that we're complaining or anything, right?
