-Its story is bland, as mentioned in other reviews, but it has some fun and silly characters which have their own personality quirks, which makes even the most minor characters memorable. This is something I don't think the other games in the series have managed to consistently do. Otherwise the story is pretty stock Fire Emblem fare.
-Its gameplay is very fun, strategic and engaging, simple and yet challenging. I played the game on Hard Classic, which is most like the 'traditional' Fire Emblem experience. I like that you can play the game in a variety of ways; if you hate the permanent death, you can turn it off, even if otherwise you want a challenge. I feel like the difficulty modes allow you to recommend it to a newcomer of the series. The one complaint I have about the gameplay is that the reinforcements appear and attack immediately. While this is probably most accurate to a real life ambush, it means that sometimes your characters die in ways beyond your control, which to me defeats the purpose of having such a highly predictable game(NOTE: This only happens in Hard mode and above). There are skills which are unique to each class of characters which spice up the differences between the people. The difference in quality between the characters is lower than the other Fire Emblem games, which means you can feel free to use whoever you want more readily!
-Aesthetically, the game is great. The graphics are nice (even if the people don't have feet), the music is lovely, and the character art is very nice.
Overall, I think Fire Emblem: Awakening is a great game with a couple of flaws, but still worth playing.
I also know the game has got a lot of flack for things like "casual mode" (i.e. you can choose for deaths to no longer be permanent) and the return of the map system (thus allowing grinding between chapters), but these elements are entirely optional and there's nothing stopping you from playing without using them (although if Lunatic+ mode isn't difficult enough for you even with these crutches around, I don't know what to say). And considering that they make the game more accessible to first timers and this could very well have been where Fire Emblem ended, I can't bring myself to complain.
P.S. the $40 extra for the XL is worth it
* New support and pairing up system creates interesting strategic game play.
* Good story and characters.
* Casual mode for new players to the series helps make the series assessable to new comers.
* Keep classical mode for veterans of the series.
* Has multiple difficulty levels to appeal to all players.
* Male and female characters can marry and have children.
* Evolving class system.
* Although good the story and characters are a little predictable.
* New support and pairing up system can take some getting use to.
* Enemy reinforcements sometimes enter the battle field at unrealistic positions.
The story and characters are good and interesting, but also a little predictable. In this game you create your character at the beginning of the game. The leader of a group called the Shepard's finds you unconscious and suffering from amnesia. Soon you and your new friend's are getting involved in a war between empires and gods.
Game play is very much like the other Fire Emblem games, you command an army of characters on a large grid battle field and your goal is to wipe out the enemy completely, defeat the enemy commander or defend a certain NPC for number of turns. Once the battle is won the story progresses and your group moves on to the next battle. There are a few things to master if you want to do well at Fire Emblem Awakening. One, using the right type of weapon against your enemy makes a big difference. Swords are good against axes but poor against spears, axes are good against spears but poor against swords and spears are good against swords but poor against axes. Flying characters are very vulnerable against arrows and warriors are vulnerable against spell casters.Read more ›
