"Path of Radiance may not stand as the best Fire Emblem title as I had previously thought. That honor goes to Sacred Stones, at least in my opinion. The game’s story is held back by the “talking heads” format. Its antagonist is a bit under par for this series. But that doesn’t change the fact that Path of Radiance is an incredible game. It’s still one of the best in the series and it’s still one of my favorites."
