Fair

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.

A True Masterpiece

Never played Fire Emblem before. After playing this game I became a fan. It is that good. With gameplay exceeding 50+ hours, this is a game I will be playing for a long time.
