Fire Emblem Awakening was arguably the best thing to come out of Intelligent Systems in a long while. Well, FE Fates has managed to top it.
The game is a real challenge and the characters and their stories are really great, helped by a very compelling story although one will require buying the complete package if you want to fully enjoy the game's narrative. Map and mission design are beyond awesome.
In the end, Fire Emblem Fates is exactly the kind of game that us fans of the series will love mostly because it feels like an extension of what was offered in past iterations but improved where needed. Building relationships with characters that fall in love, have children, and then die in battle has a REAL impact on the player as they make it through the heat of battle, and the narrative keeps stringing the user’s avatar along on a quest to end all of the bloodshed.
It’s a incredibly well-made turn-based RPG, and it will handily suck hundreds of hours of time away from anyone that gives it a chance.
Beware that there are TWO different story lines that can be purchased: Birthright and Conquest. There is also technically a THIRD story line that is currently only available as a download: Revelations. You must buy each one INDIVIDUALLY if you wish to play all three story lines. This means that if you decide to purchase Birthright, your game is locked into that decision, and you cannot restart and choose to play Conquest. If you only plan to purchase one game, choose wisely.
However, if you purchase one game at full price, the second game you can purchase digitally for 50% off! Revelations is also half price of the original game.
Basic differences between Birthright, Conquest, and Revelation:
The first few chapters of all three will begin the same no matter what, however the path you purchase will provide a different story line, as well as different units and other game items.
BIRTHRIGHT - You are choosing to side with the family you came from and turning your back on your adoptive family.It is described to be "easier" than the other two games, for those who prefer a more casual game play or are new to the Fire Emblem series. The challenges are also easier to complete.
CONQUEST - You choose to stay with your adoptive family instead of your birth family.Read more ›
Fire Emblem Fates has none of this.
Fire Emblem Fates is, for the most part, exactly what you would expect from a Fire Emblem Game if you were a fan of the series. Large battlefields filled with enemies in red, to fight against your blue-clad heroes. Fight enemies, level up, gain better skills by making moves across the map. Chew on your finger nails and pray the RNG combat of the game doesn't spit on your face and kill your characters, forcing you to start over if you went the classic route (in which characters do not revive)
However, this game suffers from the same problems as Fire Emblem Awakening and more. It has become more casualized: even classic mode doesn't provide a divide between the games of old and the new games. Weapons, with the exception of staves, no longer break.Read more ›
