Can't talk know, currently being addicted to this game so far. Seriously though, this is probably the best game I've played on the 3DS so far, fucking finally you know right?
But yeah I am really enjoying it, and it's been a while since I've played a good RTS game, much more a JPRG game that wasn't too annoying and self-absorbed. And while this game does have some of it's cliches, the nice writing, colorful AND diverse characters makes this a fun game to sit through. I haven't had this much fun in a while.
Granted though, I've never been too much of a Fire Emblem fan, and no, it's not that I dislike the game series in anyway, really it does look loyal and much more faithful to it's fan base too... I mean at least when compared other Nintendo franchises like Zelda. I mean played one other... but sucked really bad because of the permanent death and all.
Fortunately though, permanent death can be switched on or off in case you don't want to risk losing the best of your men or women in the battlefield. Or you can turn it on if you like hardcore.
If you by any chance have a Nintendo 3DS and need game to play over the months on by, they pick this one up, even if you're not a Fire Emblem fan like me, this game still kicks ass.
Beautiful Graphics, Lovely Art style, Addictive Gameplay, and fun characters, I highly recommend you give this game a try. If I need to grade it only fun level, it would most certainly be an 8.9/10. Great.
See Nintendo, I'd be a lot more positive if you actually kept making games with character and decent stories rather then remaking Mario every time you get.
P.S. You can also created your character kind of in this game for first time which is nice, I won't spoil too much in the story but it is a neat little one. It's not the most option based customization but it's unique enough so much so that you can actually distinguish you character in certain ways too. Plus it's just a lot of fun controlling your Avatar.
Plus you can also get married, I'll tell you this though, it was kind of a tough choice between the Know-It-All Genius Sorcereress Miriel, Evil Seductress Bitch Aversa, and the cool headed and kind Taguel woman Panne, but ultimately I simply decided I getting married with cute but scary, stalker-ish, and overly-shy Dark Mage Tarja... I think it worked out for the better.
