Postcard Review: Fire Emblem: Awakening

(Editor’s note: In the Postcard Review, members of the Pixelitis staff write small, easily digestible reviews big enough to ‘fit on a postcard’ – hence the title. It can be about the whole experience or just a small piece of the pie. No scores needed.)

"It's easy enough to find a game where the end goal is to save the world, but what does that action really mean to the player? What is it about fictional worlds that makes one empathize with its existence? Why should we care about preventing its destruction?

Fire Emblem: Awakening, like many games, is about saving the world. But while other games simply use the "saving the world" formula to raise the stakes, Awakening succeeds in emotionally investing the player in the outcome of its story and characters

The cast has something for everybody. Of course, leading the way is Chrom, the virtuous blue-haired renegade. I personally preferred characters like Gaius, the thief motivated only by sweets, and Henry, a murderous mage who loves a good pun." - Stephen Hilger (3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening) -
