Didn't like

This was my very first time playing Fire Emblem. I have to say that I love all rpg including jrpg. But I just couldn't get into this game at all. I played for about 3 hours and just shut down the game. I know people love this game but I just did not find it fun. The anime cut scenes are fun to watch but the in game interactions between characters where quit dull. The graphics are great for a 3DS game but I could not get into the micromanaging of all the characters on a hand held device. For this kind of game I would need total immersion with my 60" TV and my Beyerdynamic headphones. But to me it just falls flat on a handheld device. And I do love a good 50+ rpg/jprg.

Clearly in the minority, but I didn't like it.

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.

Very Good

The hardest story mode relies on luck, not skill

Enjoyed everything except playing on the hardest story difficulty. Enemies carried ridiculous skills (i.e. never miss or Luna on every hit) which made it impossible to navigate the first 3-4 levels with the starting characters. Very frustrating.
