Fire Emblem: Awakening
Fire Emblem: Awakening is the Nintendo 3DS entry in the Fire Emblem series with a fantastic English translation by 8-4 Play. The game features grid style turn based strategy battles with multiple different job classes and terrain strategy. The game also features characters with critical story paths that grow relationships as they fight side by side on the battlefield. Once a partnership is made, special benefits are given to stats including attack, evade and counter skills that greatly improve performance.
Fire Emblem: Awakening features the most story elements ever in a Fire Emblem game expanding the series drastically. Relationships on the battlefield translate to story cut scenes in the game that include flirting and romancing sections. Each relationship is unique and offers unique benefits later in the game. This offers incentive for players to build multiple relationships in combat.
One of the most notable features of the Fire Emblem series is the constant fears of permadeath of characters making every battle feel tense and purposeful. Fire Emblem: Awakening surprisingly went with an option to turn off permadeath of characters in a separate mode for more casual players to get into the series which was met with general positivity from the industry. However, hardcore modes still exist for people that are looking for the hardcore Fire Emblem experience.
The battle system includes multiple different jobs give players different chances to max out stats in specific categories and dictates the type of battle that the characters can do. Classes include heavy knights, Pegasus riders, magic wielding characters, rangers, shape shifters and multiple different buff classes. With a campaign that will take even the hardcore strategist at least 30 – 40 hours Fire Emblem: Awakening for the Nintendo 3DS will be a solid choice for any fan of the strategy RPG genre.
