This game was the second to the English Fire Emblem series and basically sets the player in control of a whole new set of characters. Generally, classes and promotions are the same as they were in Fire Emblem, and the graphics generally look the same. Gameplay is still simple, but now, instead of just getting a cutscene and the character's party automatically moving to the next destination, the player can now decide when to go to the next battle. You can also travel back to past towns to purchase goods, or to start battles, such as the Tower of Valni, which is an excellent place to level up the low characters that you will get later on in the game. As in Fire Emblem, the sound is excellent and this game features new catchy "tunes" for you to listen to as you play the game. The story for this game is amazing as is the story in the first Fire Emblem. This game can also be very lengthy, taking several hours to beat one level. The main cause for this is "arena-leveling" or using the arena on a level until all of your units are appropriately level 20. This is not required of the player, but many will find that it is a great way to make some money and get a nice amount of experience. As in the previous game, when characters die, they do not come back to life. They stay dead, so be very careful that they don't die on the level or you will have to start ALL over. This game is a challenge. Personally, I would recommend playing Fire Emblem first, but it is not required as the stories do not connect in any way. All in all, I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who takes an interest in strategy or RPGS. Basically, in a nutshell, that would be everyone from StarCraft players to Oblivion buffs. 10 out of 10 stars.
