Starting up Fire Emblem Awakening for the first time immediately reveals that the production value for the game is incredibly high. The simultaneous wonderment from both the top screen, sharp animation with outstanding use of stereoscopic 3D, and the bottom screen, listing the creative staff and crew alongside Nintendo and INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS, acquire even before seeing the title screen. The amount replay value is also present before the game’s first impression with multiple difficulty, mode preference, and avatar creation. When progression finally starts, the entertainment value kicks in and never descends. While the Nintendo 3DS is still young, Fire Emblem Awakening truly awakens as an easy candidate for the best exclusive title to own for the handheld system.
