Toi Boi's Pros and Cons Pros AWSOME STORY!!!! Great Stragety based game play Hardcore gamers will love it Not to easy not to hard Wide Variety if Characters (Know seriously theres ALOT over 100)
Cons text Dialouge not very flashy If you Die You Die
The way the story is told is based on the Gamer. This game is truly deep in story. Game play even though it's not action based but what turned based stragety game is. Now if you are impressed by pretty graphics then you shouldn't have bought a wii 1st of all and you wont like this game but this game will be loved by Anime fans. Honestly i'm just being nitpicky cause everything this game trys to do well it does AWSOMELY. It has a massive amount of characters (No I'm serouis theres alot) and i mean ALOT and the best thing is the game has no minor characters even though theres over 100 of them they are all vital to the story. Which is the best thing about this game. The story, characters and challenge is the best part about this game.
This is a great game! It has everything that any Fire Emblem fan could dream of! But, it is very similar to the earlier versions for the game cube. It doesn't harness the full potential of the Wii remote! You might as well hook up a game cube controller and use that! It has a great story line, characters look great, and there is some great art in it! Only if they had used the Wii remote!! That's all I have to say. Overall it is a great game. If I could I would give it a 9.5 because it is better than a 9 but not a 10 either.
Decent strategy game; mostly for fans of FE series

I have never played a game in the Fire Emblem franchise before, but after seeing the high ratings this game was getting, I decided to give this a shot.
I was immediately disappointed by the lack of integration of signature Wii elements such as IR. You basically turn the Wiimote sideways and play it like it's an NES controller.
Despite that, I was hoping it'd still be an enjoyable tactical game. As others have said, there is a lot of dialogue and a lot of story in this game, and for the most part, I found it pretty tedious and boring, not to mention the fact that it's mostly done with scrolls and stationary animated characters. As far as the actual gameplay, it's decent. The strategy is pretty typical, not really different from anything else I've seen. You pick your characters and you choose where they go carefully. What bothered me most was the lack of customization. In comparison to games like FF Tactics, the characters' classes are pre-determined and as far as weapon and armor choices, they're pretty bland. In addition to that, you don't really get to do any free roaming around a map or choose where you want to go.
Quick summary: If you're a fan of the FE series, I assume you'll like this game because it's pretty much more of the same. But if you're not, I'd check more about it before deciding to get it. Personally, I've played better strategy games and this one was kind of a bore.
