Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
Hello, Fire Emblem fans! I am a little new to the Fire Emblem video game series, and I think the whole series from what i have seen is pretty cool! I first got interested in getting a Fire Emblem video game after I had played as Marth and Roy from the "Super Smash Bros." video game series (Well, more or less SSB: Melee). But onto the main game. Gameplay is pretty good, if you have ever played Risk Factions or Project X Zone, you'd probably have a good idea how the gameplay is, you control your characters called "Units" who appear on a turn-based platforms/maps. The music is okay, although I do love the Fire Emblem theme song that was borrowed from SSB: Melee, it is also used in this. I felt the story wasn't as good as previous installments of the Fire Emblem series, but if you want to understand Marth's story, this is the game (I might also mention this is a remake of Fire Emblem 3 originally from Japan). There is a couple of things you can do after you're done with the game, such as: leveling up your units, getting new items, replay the story to unlock more units. That's about it! Thanks for reading!
Ignore the bad reviews,THIS IS GREAT.
This game is really cool.Yo find out your parents are missing and venture out for them with some of the baddest,Coolest Midevilish warriors EVARR.This has a pretty good storyline,Ands its challenging too.The challenging factor is what makes it fun!This game has pretty good graphics.Most of these people must use alienware,Huh?The music adds great suspence to you battles,and makes you feel almost like your in these battles. The stoyline is long and challenging,but easyer if you have a startegy.Mine is to send in the weaker forces to deal with the people first,so you have an idea of what to do next,And it gives you better ones a bigger chance. Overall,this game is awesome.its REALLY worth it.
Ignore the bad reviews!
This is one of the best games ever. And the graphics aren't that bad. There isn't any flaws in this game at all. You really should buy this game.
One of the more dissapointing Fire Emblems.
If you have played any other Fire Emblem, you may find this one disappointing. This game, compared to the rest of the series, has very minimal, if none at all, character development. The issue is, that is one of the things the series is known for.
The graphics are bland and dull. Everything is very murky. This is even more noticeable, because most of the series uses a fairly colorful somewhat anime art style. This game goes for a duller more realistic style. Which was executed poorly, the characters are very dull looking, and the battle graphics are fairly boring. Especially compared to the flashy GBA battle animations.
The game has the solid gameplay from the rest of the series, but the graphics make it seem pitifully boring compared to the rest of the series. It does have a wide selection of difficulty modes, so if you want a challenge, this game can give it.
It is perhaps best to play this game first if you are new to the series, it's lowest difficulty level is very good for newcomers. And, with this games lackluster quality overall, the other titles in the series really shine.
This game is a very faithful remake of a Japanese NES game, and the problem comes from it being too faithful. The game has barely any new content and the story is fairly simple by today's standards. What once was a great NES game for its time does not make a great Nintendo DS game.
I am a huge fire emblem fan and I was extremely disappointed at this game. The graphics are horrible. The bright side is it had a pretty decent story line. This is defiantly not up to par with the other games in this series. Overall it was an average game. I wouldn't want to replay it or recommend it to anyone who likes this series
This game is AWESOME, I def. would buy again. by the way, if anyone wants to battle my friend code is 0001-3595-3967
I like that this game is not easy. I have beaten it twice,and I have developed strategies making the game very fun. As I said I have beaten it twice and it is as fun as when I got it. The only bad thing is that if one of your characters dies, he is gone forever. But, at the same time it makes the game more challenging. I get rid of the weak characters. If you do that you will be able to go to the extra levels in between some levels that have really good characters that can join your side.
GREAT GAME!!! terrible graphics
i always used Marth in super smash bros. brawl and wanted to find out the story behind him, so i bought this game, and i'm glad i did! Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is now my all time favorite game! the graphics do suck though. I've played other fire emblem games, they were great to but not as good as this one. would be a great game on wii too!
I was very excited to get fire emblem for DS because i absolutely loved the original fire emblem. Got the game home and started playing it and was blown away by how terrible the graphics where. Some sort of attempt at 3D in 2D i guess. They needed to have used a sharper crayon. I loved the original's graphics and this was a giant leap backward. Game play was exactly the same and the story line was putting me to sleep. I'm going to take the game back and see if i can find something else that doesnt look like a four-year-old drew it and isn't as predictable as a soap opera. In short very disappointing.
This game has potential. I got it around when it got my Dsi and it was good. Then I got Legend of Zelda and that blew it away. The gameplay is good and so are the controls but the game sounds bad and doesn't last that long. I have a question. Do you think this game could be on the 3DS? Please comment.
