I love the smell of Elfire in the morning

A hint of trepidation arises whenever the "Powers That Be" decide that "Your Cool Thing" needs a bigger audience, primarily because "What They Like" and "Why You Like It" don't always mesh. Take Fire Emblem, possibly the most hardcore of Nintendo's...

I first found out about Fire Emblem in Smash Bros. Brawl. I've also played the demo and it was good. The combat system maybe a little boring... but neat, I guess. I see Marth on the cover (His voiced is a little too high-pitched for a guy) but where's Ike? He was on my favorite characters on Smash Bros. Brawl. Did he die in a previous, or he is he not a major character, or he remains a unknown character throughout the game, etc.

I played the demo and the graphics are amazing I think it one of the best 3ds game of all time my opinion



Kimmai said:

Played the Demo version and it's very addicting. Hoping to get the full game soon... it'll be my first Fire Emblem game.



beat said:

im playing it right now, im at chapter 21 in hard and classic mode with over 80 hours playtime(not counting those times that i did a chapter over and over again) this game is like the epitome of awesomeness for every rpg i ever played and the best one i played since dragon quest 8 in my opinion!



golephish said:

@beat good call, dragon quest was great. Is it just me, or is nintendo finally bringing rpgs to the 3ds like they did to the ds!



TheHeroOfLegend said:

This is my favorite 3DS game ever. I bet I wouldnt even be playing Awakening if it hadn't been for the demo Nintendo released on the eShop! Thank goodnes for that!



R-Moss said:

I love Fire Emblem, but Awakening is overrated. Good game. Bad Fire Emblem.



supermonkey117 said:

great game well worth the £40 out my wage that i work so so hard for i have to say its the best out of them all though i do have epic memories of the classics.



PoTher said:

I can't find the enemy list for each battle. I can see all my units' stats and inventory in my army's list, but what happened to the list of enemies? Am I missing something, or is the game? It's frustrating having to move the cursor over every enemy.



Link-Rogers said:

this is the best game i have ever played besides link to the past. i got married to lucina



darkfather0 said:

Epic game, Marth looks freaking awesome in it. The only thing that's weird is the way there feet look during battle



ruby11251991 said:

I loved this game it has everything I wanted fitting and the fact u can have kids are awesome this game is the best ever but I did not like the ending wen the character has to die to save them I wished that all lived I hope u can mack a another game but this with the same thing just difrent story and maby u can see ur kids grow as there leave gos up and the its for the 3ds it just much better on the 3ds



Amateur said:

Beat this game 4 times and the experience was not growing old. Yes I kinda wish that it had a lot more character skins for the main, but that is too minor the amazing experience altogether. Fire Emblem Awakening is a great game and you should buy it.
