Fire Emblem Awakening Review [Capsule Computers]

Dustin Spencer from Capsule Computers writes: "Fire Emblem wasn’t really a mainstay franchise until Marth and Roy got involved in Super Smash Bros. Melee over ten years ago. Sure, the strategic franchise was known and respected by a decently sized group of followers, but it wasn’t until those two heroes went mainstream that the world started to pay attention to the otherwise niche brand. Since then, we have had a steady flow of Fire Emblem titles spill into the west – with most of the series since seeing critical acclaim and growing demand. Nintendo know that interest does exist now, and have delivered yet another gem into the chest with Fire Emblem Awakening for the Nintendo 3DS. With that said – a new platform can be a big jump for a game of a niche genre. Does Awakening offer a rejuvenation to the realm of strategy RPGs, or is it one first party title that fails to wake up with a new generation? " (3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening) 9.5/10
