Fire Emblem Awakening review - mii-gamer

mii-gamer writes:

I have been an avid Nintendo fan since the days of the 64, so I have played almost every Nintendo franchise. But there has been one series I have been avoiding like the plague and that series is fire Emblem. The brutal difficulty and complexity of the series has always frightened me. The concept permanent death sends shivers down my spine. Ashamedly, I have to admit that I am still a Fire Emblem virgin, maybe I should reword that. I was a Fire Emblem Virgin. Not anymore. Head held up high. Smile on my face. Yes! I lost my Fire Emblem virginity. I completed Fire Emblem Awakening. And by golly it was amazing. (3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening) 9.5/10

Game of the year so far for me. If you like RPGs you owe it to yourself to try it out.

Eh, it's decent.

Easily the best SRPG on the 3DS, but that's not exactly a ringing endorsement.

It's certainly worth playing, don't get me wrong, but it's... sorely deficient in certain areas.

This game is so addicting. You could spend hours and hours just using reeking boxes to build supports between the characters. The support system is amazing IMO. It adds tension to the battles because you really grow attached the characters.

Where I'm at, the story is okay. The anime style cut scenes are gorgeous.

Overall, this is a must own game for the 3DS. I know this isn't the best description, but I didn't want to rant. Maybe I'll do a review when I'm done with everything.
