Summary: I have played every fire emblem on the Gameboy but the ds versions did not appeal to me. Its boring and very repetitive. Honestly lost intrest after level 2. The GBA versions also were boring on occasions. Repetitive gameplay, boring story (some like it I don't),and very boring cast of characters.
Summary: Hello, Fire Emblem fans! I am a little new to the Fire Emblem video game series, and I think the whole series from what i have seen is pretty cool! I first got interested in getting a Fire Emblem video game after I had played as Marth and Roy from the "Super Smash Bros." video game series (Well, more or less SSB: Melee). But onto the main game.
Summary: A faithful remake of the original game with additional flair added in the form of forging weapons, hidden support bonuses, and the weapon triangle. The game is loads of fun for those who like turn-based strategy with RPG elements. A game originally offered on a 512KB cartridge couldn't offer too much in the way of text though - so be wary that the plot won't be as good as later games.
Summary: Reminded me of my experience playing fire emblem on the GBA. This time with improved graphic and game-play. Nice nostalgic for me... And for those enjoying the old series on the GBA, buy this game too...
Summary: Fire Emblem continues without really altering too much of its formula - this is both good and bad, but for the faithful, this is a good thing. The game has a new visual style compared to other DS outings, which may or may not be to people's liking, however gameplay is very much in tact.
Summary: This installment adds some really interesting changes, like the character re-class feature and the Wi Fi modes, but fire emblem aficionados will miss mainstays such as numerous support speeches (there's only a few) and the magic triangle system (light>dark>mage>light...) Story mural graphics are amazing, but I don't care for the 3d renders of characters.
