Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
I can't speak for other people certainly, but I'll always love the Fire Emblem series, It's just been a ludicrous amount of fun and lasting entertainment.
I can honestly say my only problem with the game is that game stop feels the need to keep the price so stupidly high on games that otherwise would've been down to 10 bucks by now.
Great game, awesome for fans
Even though it starts a little slow, this game is proof that IS hasn't lost it yet. It holds up to its predecesor: the completion of the Tellius saga is indeed a compelling one. However it doesn't exclude people that haven't played Path of Radiance; this game's story is compelling and complete in it of itself. In terms of gameplay, the morphing laguz have greatly improved their utility. Fire Emblem games all have basically the same gameplay, but the beauty is in the details: improved skill and class systems, weapons and parts will make this game worth playing.
A Let Down For Fire Emblem
One of the things I always loved the most about Fire Emblem games was watching your characters grow! In this game I didn't really get that because you kept switching between parties and many characters entered the game at a pretty high level. I didn't get attached to characters the way I had in the past, and was ok with letting some of them die if need be ( I used to NEVER let ANYONE die!). Also, the support system sucked in this game! They were not dependent upon the characters and were pretty generic, also you could only support with a limited number of characters and had to delete a support to start another one! A huge letdown for fire emblem.
this is one of the best game on the wii to date. if you do not own this game you are really missing out on the game of the system.
Strategic but Flat
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn stays loyal to its series in terms of gameplay and story. Depending on which difficulty is chosen, the game may be a quick breeze or a trial-and-error repeat depending if you want to keep all your characters alive because they're permanently gone when they die just like in the previous installments in the series. However, the story feels lacking due to the lack of character development. The player can grasp the main story very well, but unless they pay close attention, they will not understand the characters at all, much less remember their names because of the game's inability to flesh out the characters' stories. Sometimes, the player will not know why they joined their party in the first place other than to provide more muscle for the group. The graphics and sound are fine for this type of game and its respective genre, but given that the game is mostly text-based, it makes sense why they would be average. Finally, depending on the difficulty chosen, the game can be 6-14 hours long counting all the trial-and-error attempts that can't be avoided if the player wishes to keep everyone alive. All in all, if you are new to the series, you needn't have played the previous iterations in the series to understand the story. However, if you want to play a game not just for its gameplay but for it's story as well, other RPGs exist that are more suited to your taste. Fans of the series will find more of the same story, just in another setting in another time and place of the series. Casual gamers can go either way with this game depending if they like less action, more strategy-based RPG's.
Awesome and require strategy
I love this game because it is a challenge for me. I have never accomplished the game on Normal or Hard mode because it's hard and that's what I love about it (don't judge). I recommend this game to people who are patient and kinda love chess.......All I gotta say is that this game requires a lot of strategy and you can't really just run your characters around in the middle of the battlefield because they will die (except for Easy Mode because it's obviously easy). IT'S LEGEND wait for it......DARY!!!
This game was the best game so far
It has the strongest charcters and is awesome when you fight . It also has good songs and it also has short videos that goes with the story. before trying it you should try Fire Emblem Path of Radiance.
I have played every Fire Emblem game (released in both Japan and America) and this would most likely be in my top 3
Great game, buy this
I bought the wii for this game, it may be challenging at first if you want to play through without losing characters, but its awesome. buy this game if youre reading this
Great Game-but not quite perfect
As far as wii games go, this is one of the great ones. The game definitely has replay ability, and each replay will bring a different experience considering the fact that characters that die do not come back. The Cutscenes have amazing graphics, but what could be the worst voice acting ever. The battle system is great, but can feel boring after a while, considering the long campaign. Graphics during gameplay were really good, except for the characters didn't achieve the "3D effect" well. Other than that, plot wasn't great, but could have been worse. It jumped around a lot, which made getting connected to characters difficult. Still, a great game.
