Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fire Emblem: Awakening (Nintendo 3DS) (Video Game)
An unexpected pleasure. I had never played a Fire Emblem game before this so I was completely in the dark as to what to expect. I brought the game because it was recommended by a friend to fill my empty 3DS gaming list. What I got may have earned its place as one of my favourate games I have ever played, not just on handheld but all around.
Awakening manages to create a wide cast filled with interesting and unique characters on top of a very good, lengthy story. The game play itself is easy to learn but difficult to master and thankfully the difficulty levels cater to all skill levels of the player ranging from the comfortable normal mode through to the aptly named Lunitic+.
While the game isn't flawless, there can be excessive level grinding in some areas and beginners may find themselves building paths for characters they may regret later due to a lack of a help system in this respect, it comes pretty close to it in my own opinion.
Overall, I whole heartily recommend it to fans of story and strategy. Parents should be aware that this is not a child's game as it is far too complex and uses so spicy language in some parts.
