Rated 10 out of 10 by ohhsii BEST FIRE EMBLEM EVER!
I love this game, I bought fire emblem because I have the one for the gamecube and when I completed that one I said "hey this is so unfair it's so incomplete and doesn't give more information about the lehran's medallion or why king ashnard wanted to begin the war" or that things but I always thought that it would be perfect that the path of radiance continue in a new adventure, so when I saw it I fell in love with Radiant Dawn. The story completes at 100% and everything is perfect: the characters, the story ALL I simply can't stop playing this game. tons of hours of FUN! SO if you don't have it I recommend this masterpiece. it won't be wasted money AND this is the best fire emblem EVER! including the first, gaiden, mistery of emblem, thracia 776, genealogy of the holy war, sword of seals, blazing sword , path or radiance, shadow dragon and new mistery this one will always be my favorite fire emblem

At first, when I played Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Ike became my favorite character. I was curious to find out what kind of game he came from. When I played fire emblem, at first I got stuck, It was challenging not to lose any characters. I couldn't get past medium mode part 1. When I tried part 2, I beat the game, and it became one of my favorites. The storyline of the game is fun to hear, in the game, the players experience a bunch of twists: betrayals, alliances, and surprising relationships. I love the music from the game, I would download it onto my ipod if I knew how. This game made me want to buy its prequal as well. Anyone who loves strategy would enjoy the compelling story line and challenging strategy of the fire emblem series. I highly recommend this game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Your Friendly Neighborhood Gamer THE Review
If you are looking for a good, long, interactive strategy title, then Radiant Dawn is definitly for you. The story takes place 3 years after Path of Radiance. You begin in Daien but that is all I Will say now. The Graphics are VERY GOOD for the Wii and the movie mode is better than a PS3. The game has more than 50 levels and takes an incredibly long time. You have to be very patient though, the game is very difficult. The sound effects and tracks for the game are truly immersive and the story is pretty well written. The Artificial Intelligence also is very repsonsive to you every move, get too close with a weaker character and they are gone. One very important thing to remember is thaty this game utilizes Permadeath. If a character is dead then they are gone for good. Hardcore strategists wont be complete with this game and if you are up for a challenge get Fire Emblem.

This game is the best fire emblem game I played in my life. I played like 7 fire emblem game and this is the best so far. The AI challenges you very well, and the story was well put together bringing back the setting from the previous fire emblem, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. I would highly recommend those who want to have fun in a well developed strategy game. The graphics are the best for the current fire emblem games because ever since they were first developed roughly 10 years ago, Nintendo developed the graphics where the characters and background uses more 3 dimensional effects and the sound being raised into a quality where one could feel the realness of weapons striking and magic incinerating foes. Those that have an appetite for something real challenging the player can adjust the level of the AI too. On average i would give this a 10 out of 10.
Rated 10 out of 10 by DuG Challenging strategy great game
This game is not for someone that doesn't like a challenge. This game is tough even on easy (the game suggests if you are new to this series to play on easy), I would recommend playing on easy if you are not a tactical or strategy person as this is a game where every move counts. I really enjoyed the character development, the varied battles and viewpoints especially the larger battles where you really feel like you are a general at war. This game makes no use of any of the special controls for the Wii and I think it is great just turn the controller sideways and get ready to begin. If you enjoy a good RPG you might find this tough, if you enjoy tactical or strategic RPGs than this is a must buy. I was genuinely upset when I finished this game, never have I been more excited to build up characters. The animal creatures in the game are an interesting twist but the one thing I think they could have put more thought into. Finally in a pleasant surprise the mages are not super-powered at the end of the game where the melee characters are there just to provide a barrier for the spell casters, you really need your generals, reavers, etc.
Rated 10 out of 10 by GamerGirl1622 This game, overall, is an AMAZING GAME!
This game is awesome!! The music is amazing, the characters are amazing, and the plot is amazing!! Overall, its just amazing!! The cutscenes are gorgeous, I watch them over and over again. This game is good for casual gamers because there is an easy mode, which is super easy and lets you fall in love with the game, charactres and plots easily! And then theres normal which is for more of a challenge. Therefore, you can chose how hard you want it too be! One of my favorite things this game is the music. The music is just fabulous! This game is great when you have nothing to do, it fills up your time greatly! I also am in love with the characters. (specifically, Soren, xD ) The graphics could be a bit better, and the fighting things are alittle lengthy (you can turn those off!) The plot is great, its worth the money!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Mike_The_Mets_King Awesome!
So fire emblem games from, gameboys...to gamecubes...now on the wii the graphics, the storyline, sound etc. are all awesome, I hope that they will soon make a new Fire emblem, probably on a new gamestation in later years. But I recommend this game to anyone who has a lot of time on there hands. So the first Fire Emblem game I had was one on the gameboy, second one I had, still on the gameboy, third game I had, STILL on the gameboy, then finally a change in the lineup, one on the gamecube path of radiance, (the game before it's sequel, fire emblem radiant dawn). Then finally, I got the one on the wii and that game changed the game of fire emblem forever. So if you are the kind that gets bored all the time with nothing to do but read a book, this is a game to keep you exited for a while ;).

Fire emblem Radiant Dawn is one of the games im happy to say i bought. Being a big fan of the fire emblem series, im really happy with this game! :D Yeah the grafics are wonderful there are alot of cutscenes, the sounds are good, i like the music very much. One thing is that this game was very difficult, When i had a ally who died i quickly restart the game and play that whole level again, which can be annoying but when the game ends You would be happy that you kept them alive. Aside from all that if you have played the old fire emblem series there is much more job promotions when you level a ally, unless its the animal ones. This game has an incredible storyline that stretchs back from the old fire emblem released for gamecube, Fire emblem Path of radiance. Yeah, buy this game!

This looks like an amazing game for the Wii. It seems to be a definate improvement over Path Of Radiance and it looks as if it will use most of the same characters and the same kind of combat cutscenes(the little cutscenes that you saw when you attacked someone). The game takes place after Path Of Radiance and basically continues where it left off. New characters do appear, and should play an important role in the game. Looking at demos, it looks as if the game looks just like Path Of Radiance, but with some minor differences. New magic sets, such as light and dark are also utelized which greatly improves your ability to customize your team and be ready for anything. Fire Emblem games have always been good, and I am definately anticipating this one!

I love this fire emblem game i have played every other one and this is my favorite by far. I love the fact that they bring some of the players from fire emblem path of radiance especialy Ike because he is by far the coolest fire emblem character ever. You need to be a realy good strategest to win the game but i recommend this game for anyone who likes strategy games and fire emblem games. I also like that they brang in some new character like miciah, nolan, leonardo, and my favorite new character skrimir. And if you have not played this game yet there is a very very big surprise but i wont tell you anymore about that. as i was saying earlier that Ike was my favorite character mostly because of his amazing sword skills and amazing sword ragnell.
