Not sure what to thinkIt wasn't something I'd usually purchase, but I decided to give it a shot. I found it boring. Only played for 20 hours. Didn't relate to any of the characters of gameplay either.

One Of The BestI was a bit skeptical at first with this game. Yes, Chrom is the only FE character in the game, but it does have a great Persona feel. The more I played through this game the more I loved it. Quickly became one of my favorite games of all time. I had to play a second play through once I beat it the first time. Would highly recommend to any RPG fan.

A pretty decent game own itself don't let all of tTMS#FE is allot of fun in terms of game play it reminds of bunch of other MegaTen games. The dungeon crawling setup and design is like DDS, you have a 3 person party limit, and rings like DDS2. You have weapon crafting like Strange Journey as well as the same battle system but like super improved. And the skill logos like in SMT4, same button layout, you can also save anytime like, change the difficulty at any time and of course preemptive attacks, all like SMT4. Even main story quests and sides quests are organized in a similar way. You also have the option to not control your party members like Persona as well the obvious Persona like aesthetic. The game doesn't really play like Persona though it's not like it at all, it's not really a fair comparison. It's really more of mixture of the games I mentioned not just Persona. It's a really cool game. For what it's worth from what I played I think the story is dumb fun. It's best not to take it too seriously to get the most out of it. Although truthfully I don't really care about the whole idol thing that much. It's not annoying even though that it's present. The graphics are pretty good too. It's such a wonderfully colorful game and I like colors. When every other game these days having such a boring color palette games like these are really a breath of fresh air. And it has some pretty good music it's no Shoji Meguro but still pretty good. Overall is just a really fun game.
But I wanna address the negatives and what I think of the them. The loads times aren't as bad as people make it out be. There kind of long(like 5-10 sec. max) but you get use to it rather quickly. The fact the that the game is censored doesn't really affect the game play therefore doesn't matter if you ask me. The lack of English dub isn't too bad either if you ask me a game heavily based on JPOP and Japanese idol culture wouldn't translate well with a dub. And keep in mind I prefer dubs. I'm kind of person who doesn't care if Persona 5 will be dub only. The fact that isn't a true crossover is often complained about too but meh doesn't bother me much either I kind of think it's better this way. There is mild slow down and that does genuinely bug me although it's thankfully not intrusive. I'm not really much of a Fire Emblem (I've only played Scared Stones) fan but from I played with game is mostly MegaTen with a Fire Emblem skin. I would imagine that might disappoint some fans of FE. Although I'm here for the MegaTen game play not FE.
I played bad games before and this is most certainly not a a bad game. Honestly I don't get the negativity behind it. Did people just forgot to have FUN with games? Cause I dunno about you but I like to have fun because fun is fun. And this game is mostly certainly fun. It's not perfect. It's no masterpiece like SMT4 or P4 but it's a good and fun spin off entry in the MegaTen line up. Actually give it a proper chance before calling it awful. I will say this game comes highly recommended if your looking to get a MegaTen fix, want a game to tide you over until Persona 5 comes out. Or if your just looking to play a pretty good JRPG on Wii U that isn't Xenoblade Chronicles X. You can't really go wrong with this game.

Great cross over titleThis is a very fun and engaging game. I feel that the only thing reason why people have given negitive reviews is because they were looking for more fire emblem, Shin Megami Tensei, or Persona. When this game is a cross over not actually one of those games in of it self. This game is a standalone cross over title and if you are looking for specifcally the three games mentioned above look else where. Now as for the game it self the game has great music, and true to it's name it's discription it does indeed have a lot of stuff about japan's entertainment indistury. The game play is great. The battle system is pretty much just like persona or Shin Megami Tensei series with the exeption of it having phyiscal types from fire emblem, which just adds to the stratagy. The story is engaging and fun, even though it ends up being a standard plot from fire emblem in the later game. The graphics are great with it being made on the wii U. In conclusion if you are looking for a game like fire emblem, Shin Megami Tensei, or persona only then look else where because the game draws elements from both fireemblem and Shin Megami Tensei/persona, but if you dont mind elements of both being in there and it made into a different type of game then this is a great game for you.

SMT Fans WelcomeWhen I first heard about this game it had the title "Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem" and a fan made announcement video I watched said it played similar to Fire Emblem. I am glad they changed the name for the western release because the name would have been very misleading. This game does not play like Fire Emblem, in fact, the only aspects I've noticed that are like FE is mostly dialogue and character names. Other than that, it's a full blown Shin Megami Tensei game. The only big difference when it comes to that end is that there are no dating options which I find weird because the whole theme of the game... If you've played SMT before you'll love this game. If you haven't, you probably should play one before jumping on this train.

J-Popping Good TimeFrom the release trailers and preview footage, I had absolutely no idea what to expect from this game. I've never played a Persona game, but I've played the more recent Fire Emblem games, so I was coming in blind. Let me say right now: If you're looking for Fire Emblem gameplay, it won't be here. This is more of a traditional turn-based RPG than a tactical top-down RPG. There are Fire Emblem characters, but you don't need to play any of the games in the series to know what is going on in the story because it's honestly irrelevant. So with that out of the way, let me say that this is a wonderful game that anyone looking for a solid JRPG should pick up. Let me start with the story. The story is the typical normal person becoming a celebrity story. You play as Itsuki, who gets dragged into the world of performing arts when his lady friend Tsubasa gets recruited for Fortuna Entertainment, a talent agency in Tokyo. However, Fortuna sucks them into a bigger conflict when monsters called Mirages invade their world, and the pop stars of Fortuna Entertainment must team up with the embodiments of Fire Emblem characters in order to prevent the world from being destroyed. In the process, Itsuki, Tsubasa, and the whole gang become stronger performers and warriors and become global superstars. It's very hard for me to talk about the plot without spoiling, honestly. I think it's a decent story with some funny moments (especially from Tsubasa), but one downside is that the characters are almost all stereotypes. Itsuki is the everyman, Tsubasa is socially awkward, Touma is the tough guy, Kiria is the stone cold girl with a soft side, Eleonora is the preppy chick with high standards, Mamori is the cute one, Yashiro is the emo one, Maiko is the sexy secretary, and Barry is the anime fan on prom night. Although they were cutouts, I still enjoyed their dialogue, and although others say it's cringeworthy, I didn't see it as that at all. The graphics look spectacular for a Wii U game. The characters are expressive, everything is bright and colorful, and the character designs are really good. However, there is a bit of slowdown in places. For example, there are three playable characters out at a time, and enemies in the middle of the battlefield. There was one battle where the boss divided into 4 copies of the boss and that caused a whole lot of slowdown until he became one person again. The sound is fantastic. Some of the performances in the game were stuck in my head almost instantly. Dream Catcher is my personal favorite, along with Raindrop Memories. Keep in mind that it's Japanese voiceover only, but that doesn't bother me personally. The gameplay has you going through dungeons that contain puzzle elements. Some of these puzzles are tedious, especially when enemies keep popping up, but I enjoyed finally solving them. Your characters can level up their skills and improve their weapons and combat abilities. By finding an enemies' weakness, you can trigger what's called a Session, where other members of your party can get an attack in and cause massive damage. It was cool enough when my party of three accomplished this, but it gets even better in the late game where you can have a 7-combo Session followed by a Duo Act followed by another 5-chain Session. It quickly becomes a big spectacle, and I wanted to progress through the story to see just how strong my characters could get. The gameplay is addicting and as a JRPG fan, I really enjoyed it. The Fire Emblem stuff really comes into play when discussing weaknesses. If you know your weapon triangle for swords, lances, axes, bows, and magic spells, you'll be right at home. Again, there's no gameplay taken from the Fire Emblem series, just characters, weapons, and spells. It's kind of hilarious what they do with the characters though. For example, Tiki appears in this game as essentially a Voca-loid like Hatsune Miku. Because she can't exactly fight in that form, she stays back and helps you create new weapons and abilities. I thought stuff like that was really clever, and you'll find many references to movies, songs, anime, and pop culture. In short, if you can accept that this game isn't taking itself too seriously and just having fun with itself, you'll find a solid JRPG with addicting combat, tedious dungeons, and excessively excellent presentation. I would definitely give it a try.
