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.

Fire Emblem Awakening is a stand out title for the 3DS. The combat system is intuitive and easy to pick up, yet still challenging enough to reward those that put time and effort to think of every move their going to make ten steps ahead of the one they just did. The characters are highly likable and will most likely make you want to restart maps over and over again if you're playing in the classic, permadeath mode, just so you don't lose any of them.
The main plot of the game can be predictable at times, but is really driven forward by the aforementioned battle system and great characters. Where the writing really shines is in the support conversations that are won over by teaming up two characters in each of the fights. There are some truly funny and touching moments within those that are rarely seen in other games.
Add into it the amount of extra content provided through StreetPass, SpotPass and paid DLC and the amount of life you can get from this title is well worth any amount of time you put into it.
So i started out not buying this game on release because i wasnt a big Stratagy RPG fan, i mean i like RPG's the good old turn base, but this game makes it so appealing to play a stratagy rpg. The thing i look in most of RPG's are the story and character Development and they have that down just right. You can choose who you want to pair with and gain relationships with any character. You can also raise it even more buy playing with them together in battles and talking to them outside of battle. The story is amazing as you go and help your Kingdom (wont say much cause i do not wish to Spoil it). In my opinion this is a must have for all 3DS owners, even if you are not familiar with the older fire emblems.
- Epic Story
-Good character development
-easy to play and get into (Casual Mode)
-easy and simple to use AI
- Not much Voice acting (only in cut scenes and CG's)
- Some Character development seems pushed/ and or artifical
All and all this is a Must own for all 3DS owners.
