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.
