Summary: Purchased this item for my 14 year old birthday. All he wanted was 2 games. He has yet to put them down. They are actually challenging him, not a game he won in one day. He loves it. I did have to go out of the way to purchase but bought on line and picked up in store. Very convenient.
Summary: Fire Emblem Awakening, is well... AMAZING! It is very impressive the amount of customization one can do in this game which is one of its endearing traits. But to be completely honest it can be a little overwhelming too. If you want to find out more about this game without spoilers read ahead. This handheld to me is the love child of final fantasy tactics advanced,a mmo, and sims. All are great and have many things to offer new gamers and old gamers alike.
Summary: The combat is really fun to play. This is my first real RPG besides Pokemon and I am having a great time with this game. I don't know if the game is worth $40 but I used a gift card so I got the game for around $30, which I think is the perfect price. I definitely recommend this game to anyone with a 3DS; it's one of the best games on the system.
One of the best JRPGs I've played in years.Beautiful with charm,romances,great story and tactical battle system.

Summary: Fire Emblem Awakening is the first Fire Emblem game I've played and I can safely say it's one of the best and most addicting games I've played over the last few years. There's numerous reasons why this game is great,it's story has great plot twists and can be emotional,the characters are charming and the game makes you care about them by allowing characters to get married and to make children with other characters and you can even use the children in your party!
Summary: I bought this game because of the positive reviews everywhere. I played for about 4 hours and just found it a bit boring and complicated. This was my first time playing a fire emblem game and I just couldn't get into it. I love RPGs but this just didn't do it for me. I really don't know why it has these great reviews.
Summary: The learning curve is nice, esp on harder difficulties and i'm not even far into the game. I like it so far, loved the opening sequence. First fire emblem game ive played so far so i hope it lives up to the rest of the hype.
Summary: After their overwhelming boom in popularity by being featured in Super Smash Bros. Melee, American fans demanded more of the mysterious combatants, Roy and Marth. After two years, Intelligent systems answered with the series first US release, Fire Emblem . A decade and four localized games later, Fire Emblem surrendered its GameRanking title as highest rated in the series to the newly released Fire Emblem Awakening .
