Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia 

 

I was excited that Family Friendly Gaming bought a physical copy of Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia. I would say that Nintendo pushed the rating of Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia to a strong T (thirteen and older only). They seemed to have had it all - false gods, profanity, blood, violence, and more. Fear not if you decide to pick up Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia it is only 1 game versus Fates’ three games. Nintendo made Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia very hard if you didn’t purchase the season pass or individual DLCs. This game took a long 59 almost 60 hours for me to beat, and they still had an Epilogue.

The Story in Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia revolves around a false god and goddess, Duma and Mila. In the Path of Celica you have to save Mila from a kingdom that kidnapped Mila. In Alm’s path you take back Zofia and invade Rigel. In the End dungeon you have to fight Alm’s cousin who basically sold his soul to the Devil. After you finish with him you then have to work your way through the dungeon to go and kill Duma the false god. Now that leads to a speech about how humanity doesn’t need any gods which is a direct attack on any religion other than Atheism.

The soundtrack in Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia is quite nice however there is so much profanity in the background from enemies dying or your team leveling up that the soundtrack is almost forgotten. The Anime cut scenes in Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia were good looking, but they were 3DS graphics so nothing too amazing. Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia requires a large amount of grinding in fact most of the almost 60 hours I played I spent grinding. Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia removed the best mode in my opinion which was Phoenix mode in which every turn all dead units would come back, this was great for new people to the franchise and I am not sure why Nintendo thought it wise to remove this easier mode. People in support of Traditional Marriage rejoice the only marriages that happens is post-game and is Traditional.

Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia has changed the Fire Emblem system forever and I don’t know if I like it. Now you only have one inventory slot, abilities come with weapons, small amount of classes, and magic/Arts take HP(health points) to use. For the first time I can recall Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia has 3D dungeons to explore this was a complete surprise to me as was used to the previous system and I liked it. The other side to 3D dungeons is you find treasure chests way more often which is helpful since you can’t buy weapons in Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia. Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia is certainly a more challenging Fire Emblem that will not be good for newcomers.

Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia is not a game that I would recommend to play if you are young, as it is geared towards older people with all of the problems that it had. I am glad that in Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia Traditional marriage is the only marriage. This game is designed to try and get you to buy the DLC so that you can see the end of the game. I think Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia goes out of its way to attack all religious beliefs but Atheism. I would suggest all but hardcore fans to stay away from Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia.
