Fire Emblem Awakening 

 

Hopefully you read my preview on Fire Emblem Awakening. If not it would be a good idea to read it before reading this review. I found this Nintendo 3DS game to be a huge disappointment. I do not get some things about Fire Emblem Awakening. Why is there this entire religious system in it devoted to false gods? Why can’t they point people to the one true God? At least in the American version.

The Fire Emblem franchise is known to be devilishly difficult. Fire Emblem Awakening contains a normal mode and a hard mode. In the normal mode if your character is killed in battle they are brought back to life for the very next fight. In hard mode if they die, they are dead forever. In either mode the leveling up system is grossly imbalanced.

Visually we have to deal with enticement to lust, and violence. The map screens contain tiny graphics. When characters fight we are given a close up view of the violence. There are anime like movies, and cut scenes with an encyclopedia of text to read. Why don’t these characters have feet in the cut scenes? One of the characters in Fire Emblem Awakening is a belly dancer and we have to watch her gyrate every time we use her. I could have done without that.

The battles in Fire Emblem Awakening feel too similar, and the storyline never invokes any emotion. Maybe because the characters drone on too often saying the same things. Maybe the brain washing did not take with me like some others in the industry. Players can skip through the boring story elements to quickly beat this game.

One strategy in Fire Emblem Awakening works almost every single time. Move forward slowly en mass. Kill a few bad guys, and then rinse and repeat. The whole strategy element to Fire Emblem Awakening feels lost. Especially when they added in stay near friends to help one another out. I avoid that pairing up option as much as possible. Save your money for something that will strengthen your faith, not try to destroy it.
