This review is from: Fire Emblem: Awakening (Nintendo 3DS) (Video Game)
2013 has been a fantastic year for 3DS owners. Luigi's Mansion 2, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Animal Crossing...but at the top of the pile of brilliant games for me is the new instalment in the Fire Emblem series: Awakening. This is easily one of the best turn based strategy titles I've ever played, and my personal favourite in the FE franchise. The presentation is through the roof, offering sumptuously animated and voiced cut scenes with crisp graphics. The range of art styles is incredible. Gameplay is immensely rewarding on the higher difficulty settings, as you plan and strategise your next move on the battlefield. Music and voice acting is top notch, the campaign will keep you going for a long time with the regular Spotpass DLC, and multiple playthroughs are a must to fully appreciate and understand the characters and their motivations and quirks. In a word: unputdownable.
