Impression: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: It's hard to call yourself an RPGamer without playing a single Fire Emblem game, but somehow I managed to sneak past the series for the majority of my life. That's why at Nintendo's Fall Press Conference, the one game I knew I had to get my hands on was Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon .

We doing it old school!

Terrific tactical RPG isn't suitable for younger gamers.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon contains serious themes. Though its animated violence is mild, there is much talk of war, death, and revenge. What's more, if one of the player's characters perishes, he will remain dead for the rest of the game and other characters will mourn him.

  • Excerpt: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is the first Fire Emblem game to come to the Nintendo DS and is a remake of the first Fire Emblem that published what seems eons ago. Previously, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon has only been available in Japan and it is finally making its debut in North America. Being a fan of tactical RPG’s like Final Fantasy Tactics and Advance Wars this title was on my must have list and I was eager to get my hands on it to play.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon review (DS)

HonestGamers
4 March 2009
  • Excerpt: game and you’ll see why the series is revered in the world of turn-based strategy games: Its emphasis on the immediate and long-term effects of death is brilliant. The knowledge that each downed soldier is down for good makes you more considerate of individual lives. Being more considerate, in turn, makes you more cautious, less reckless.
