Product Description

Fight the power! That is the mantra of the Dawn Brigade as they battle to free their homeland from the tyranny of an evil empire in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, the latest in the long-running Fire Emblem strategy-RPG series.

Three years have passed since the last Fire Emblem adventure, when the kingdom of Daein invaded neighbouring Crimea and sparked a war that nearly consumed the continent of Tellius. Crimea held off the invasion, crowned the late king's daughter as their queen and rebuilt their beleaguered nation. However, Daein came under the tyrannical rule of the powerful Begnion Empire. Now, to break free from the grip of Begnion oppression, a handful of young revolutionaries - the Dawn Brigade - has banded together to save the lives of their countrymen.

Like the other games in the Fire Emblem series, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn is a deep, tactical strategy game that boasts role-playing elements. Through strategic movements, effective items/weapons use and a little luck, players will need to defeat the opposing army on a map. Every time a unit of yours defeats an enemy unit, that unit receives experience points and becomes more powerful. Your army of rebels consists of dozens of unique characters, including knights, thieves, archers and warriors. These characters can rise to become legendary heroes, but if you're not careful, they could perish in battle, never to be heard from again.

  • Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn utilises your Nintendo GameCube completed game save file of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. You can insert your GameCube Memory Card with the save file into your Wii console and load special data to enhance your Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn experience.
  • Feeling attached to a character? You better watch his or her back. Each unit you command has unique attributes - with unique being the operative word. If your character is slain in battle, you lose that character for

Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In case you don't know the history of this gaming gem, Fire Emblem began in the 1990's with the release of Fire Emblem 1 on the NES. This tactical role-playing experience has developed through Nintendo's history into a true prize in the Wii's extensive treasure chest. The gameplay mechanics follow a turn-based tactical role, where you manage a group of characters through a map grid in order to defeat the enemy and ultimately complete the chapter objective. Created by the same team which brought us Advanced Wars, Fire Emblem follows suit in the strategic gameplay style. However, in my opinion, with a more broad character development setup than in any game I have ever played, Fire emblem surpasses her sister game in almost every aspect.

However, onto what you're all here for. As always in Fire Emblem games, Radiant Dawn takes place in the mediaeval period. Following from the Gamecube great `Path of Radiance,' Radiant Dawn tracks the tale of two intertwining characters from the previous game. Three years on from the defeat of "Mad King Ashnard" Tellius has once again erupted in war. I don't want to go very in depth with the plot so much so that I spoil the story for you, however what I will say is that this game features one of the most enjoyable and intense storylines of any game I've ever played!

"Why is this game value for money?" you ask yourself. Well along with a healthy 42 chapters to accomplish, this game takes the average gamer well over 40 hours to complete on the medium setting. As I've only just started my outing on hard, I can't say exactly how long it takes to complete in this mode, but judging by the medium mode I would think it takes roughly 50 hours+. Additionally, this game has brilliant replay value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible game 16 Feb 2010
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was my first venture into the Fire Emblem series and I have to say... wow.
For those of you who (like me) are new to the series, picture Baldur's Gate or Neverwinter Nights, only turn-based. Now make your party about 15-20 people and you've got a fair idea.
Details like weapons only having a fixed number of uses and particular weapons being more/less effective against different types of units make strategy the main emphasis of the game.

I'd recommend this to anyone with the patience for turn-based combat. Also great value - good to see a game with 40 hours of play time on a single play through. Those are getting pretty rare lately.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great game but could have been so much better 12 May 2008
By Dr Evil TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
'Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn' is the latest game in the series, and this time it's on the Nintendo Wii.

GAMEPLAY - 4/5
The style is exactly the same as the excellent GBA and Gamecube versions where you have a group of warriors, magicians and other skilled fighters and must take turns with the enemy to move around the map until your objective is complete. Sadly there is no new way of playing this using the Wii's innovative remote and nunchuck, instead you simply turn the remote side ways to use it as a NES pad and use the directional pad and the 1 and 2 buttons to control it. A bit of a wasted opportunity there and a lazy move by Nintendo in my opinion as the motion sensor would have worked perfectly by pointing the remote at the characters and moving them about, but not this time. The difficulty goes from fairly straightforward and easy to a real thinking man's game later on, as one wrong move could be a fatal mistake. And as once a character dies in the game, they are dead forever, this could make it extremely hard later on if a specially skilled character has been killed but is needed for a particular task.

GRAPHICS - 3/5
Although they aren't the best graphics on the Wii by a long shot the map is very clear to recognise your characters and see where everything is clearly. The cut scenes have very impressive cartoon animations with really sharp images and are great to look at.

SOUND - 4/5
Atmospheric tunes that are very similar to the ones from the old GBA and Gamecube games andt all fits very nicely with the setting.

LIFESPAN - 4/5
Some of the maps are really big and the enemies do get tougher as the games goes on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Game 1 Sep 2009
By gitflap
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This was the first Fire Emblem game that I played. I liked it so much that I sought out the GameCube prequel too. The big improvement over the older game is the Battle Save option which allows you to redo a round when things go pear shaped rather than your having to start the whole battle again from the beginning.

It's a big game. The story is OK but rather complicated and drawn out but that's fine because, if you like the game, you'll want to try it again and it'll start to make more sense. Playing for a second (or third) time will help you to get the hang of what the various items do as sometimes the manual and in-game explainations fall short. It is very important that you understand the Support system for example.

There are a few problems however.
*Some of the characters are useless (Fiona springs to mind) and are hardly worth including. In fact, you probably won't bother using around a quarter of them once you get farther into the game. Then you'll find, towards the end, you'll need them again and they'll be rubbish. So you'll use up valuable XP on them and that'll be OK. But then, for the last few hours, you can only use about 14 characters! It would have been nice if the others could have gone on some sub-quests or whatever. Of course, you're meant to let them die but I couldn't. I was brought up on Shining Force.
*For each battle, there are always two or three characters whose inclusion is mandatory. Sometimes half your party are pre-selected which again makes it difficult to level up the others.
*Some of the environment penalties are baffling. Horses are useless in the desert! But they're fine indoors!
*Some of the maps are quite dull.
*Others are thinly disguised rehashes from Path of Radiance.

Niggles aside, if you are a fan of turn-based, grid RPGs, then you will love this game.
