1UP- Fire Emblem Awakening Review

1UP:Fire Emblem remains one of Nintendo's longest-running franchises, and like many other Nintendo series it has changed very little over time. Yet I'd argue that it holds a place in the medium similar to the likes of Dragon Quest, Halo, and SimCity: Games that have defined the baseline of a genre almost perfectly since the beginning and therefore need only modest refinements from entry to entry.

the reviewer admited himself that he didnt finished the game before shitting out his ni no kuni "review".

1up is irrevelant and shoulnt be taken seriously.

Now they are just horrible, like Kotaku.

Too bad this game has shipping issues around here.. Nintendo usually launches games on sundays but this one isnt at my local stores yet due to shipping delays
