Probably the best 3D/Graphics I've seen to date, but that can't save a game.
Over the top chatty. So much dialogue, that within just a few chapters, I was already skipping through, taking me out of the story. You know how some of thoese "Tales" game characters never shut the heck up? That, and then some. Game play was no different than any other similar game (think Disgea or FF Tacticts). Weapon/armor equipping seemed like it could have been much simpler.
Sorry to be against the masses, but I bailed on it fairly early with no remorse.

This game left me awe struck after beating it, the story is FANTASTIC, and left me with that sad feeling you get after spending time with a game and its characters for 25+ hours. do yourself a favor and buy this game, it is by far worth it. there is constantly updated DLC, including new missions daily, and new story being released via DLC. my first fire emblem game, and if the quality is this good in subsequent releases, it most certainly wont be my last.

Positives: Great visuals, nice use of 3D, deep strategy, lots of mechanics to learn and master, interesting characters and character development, flexible difficulty settings that allow you to be hardcore or casual, lots of replayability, intriguing story.
Negatives: Not enough voicework, forging system is weak, some battles can last a long time.
Overall: This is easily the best game on the 3DS, and a fantastic entry into the Fire Emblem series. I played Sacred Stones years ago, so it was great to dive back into the Fire Emblem gameplay. If you like Strategy and JRPGs, this is the best possible combination you can find. Highly recommended. And if you got a 3DS XL like I do, you will be blown away.
