Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is, at its heart, a great game. It has some missed potential, and occasionally a lack of polish. Yet in the end what a game boils down to is the gameplay itself, and that is where Shadow Dragon excels. The classic Fire Emblem formula still holds up brilliantly today, and is a blast to play through. Whether you are new to the series or a veteran looking to see where the series began, Shadow Dragon should satisfy your appetite.
