    Fire Emblem: Awakening


    About the Game

    Fire Emblem Awakening offers a unique blend of in-battle strategy, vast character customization, and lush 3D cinematic graphics that appeal to a wide range of gamers. In this game, you'll join Chrom, brother to Ylisse's empress and commander of its forces, in a fantasy world teetering on the brink of war. It's your duty to guide a team of Ylisse's finest soldiers--knights, mages, archers, and more--against the marauding Plegian bandits.

    Our Verdict

    Editor's Choice
    Fire Emblem: Awakening is by far the best tactical RPG on the 3DS right now and it’s well worth your time. It is also a great place for new players to get into the franchise, as casual mode turns off the permanent death feature. But hardcore fans will be happy to see the option to switch the difficultly setting for a bigger challenge. Awakening’s beautiful fantasy world truly draws you in and when a game has done that, you know it is an experience to remember.
