Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS) | FTG Review

FTG Writes: Like a good number of you out there, last year’s surprise hit XCOM: Enemy Unknown provided me an excellent re-introduction to turn-based strategy games. So naturally, when I finally decided to pick up a 3DS XL, the first game that caught my eye was Fire Emblem: Awakening. The latest in a long-running series of Japanese strategy role-playing games, Fire Emblem: Awakening bucked a few franchise trends in order to appeal to its broader handheld audience. For series vets, that type of thinking is borderline hypocrisy. However, in lowering the barrier of entry while simultaneously upholding its hardcore tactical roots, Fire Emblem: Awakening creates a smart mix of deep, yet accessible combat that gamers of all stripes can enjoy. (3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening) 9/10
