I wanted to try this out since of the amazing reviews everywhere and they were all true. The story was great as well as the game-play. Took me 20-30 hours to beat the same and some the easier difficulty's, i couldn't image doing it on the hard ones that's a challenge for someone else.
Only downside was the dlc was about 6 bucks for each little pack so cost about 50-60 for them all so i just stuck with the game which is well worth it.
As a casual gamer who usually gives up on a game after the seventh time of retrying a level, I can honestly say that Fire Emblem is the first game I've played where failing actually encouraged me to play even more. Playing Fire Emblem reminding me a lot of chess, and the principles of it are basically the same. You're a strategist who moves your pieces/units across the field, taking turns with the other team.
I love the story line, and adore the support conversations. The more a pair of units fight together, the stronger their relationship becomes, and can even blossom into love. It was my favorite part of the game just to see what their children would look like, and you can even marry the children to each other as well.
Even if you're not a huge strategy fan, I am confident that this game will pull you in from start to finish. With amazing graphics (seriously, turn on the 3D during animations), writing, and gameplay, there's no way that you can hate this game.
