Not the best

This game overall was a dissapointment......The storyline was predictable and many useful features were missing. One of these missing features is that there was no rescue option. I found that without the rescue option you have to be much more careful and it makes it twice as difficult to finish the game without killing anyone. Also almost every level the objective was to seize a point... I found this quite repetitive and by the 6th chapter became bored.. The graphics were ok, the cutscenes really being the highpoints.

Fire Emblem is my all time favorite game franchises so naturally I love this game. But Ike is 10x more manly than marth and his tiara.

This game is kind of boring. I'm usually a big RPG fan but this game just comes up short. There's no real level progression, you're stuck to the rock-paper-scissors paradigm for most of the game, and its really hard to get into the story when you feel compelled to play a mission n-teen times because someone you thought you were making a good warrior or god forbid mage dies and you no longer have them...forever. I haven't played a lot of RPGs on the DS but I've played ones with far better graphics and sound so its not winning any awards there. Never tried the multiplayer modes so I cannot comment on those. If you're looking for a good RPG on the DS stick to the FF series and you'll get much better graphics/characters and gameplay.
