Fire Emblem: Awakening is great

2 Comments

First actual Fire emblem game for me (by that I mean I don’t count the time when I was middle school-aged and tried to play one and get pissed off at the fact that units die permanently, and then quit). I’m on casual because I can’t handle permadeath/resetting every time someone dies. I finished my first playthrough on Normal/Casual, which was pretty easy. Then I decided to play on Lunatic/Casual and table flipped on the prologue battle, then the chapter 1 battle, and then the chapter 2 battle which I’m still table flipping at because I can’t strategy. Thus, I went for Hard/Casual for a happy medium. So far so good, I just have to play a lot more defensively than my normal playthrough. I am in awe of those who play on Lunatic/Classic, or better yet, Lunatic+/Classic.

I am now determined to get all support conversations, and attempt some stat-maxing because this game is fun. The support conversations are hilarious. Come to think of it, Kid Icarus had awesome banter too. Nintendo’s localization teams seems to know what they’re doing. The gameplay is really fun, since I’ve always found SRPGs to be fun. Still, Fire Emblem is rather different from most tactical RPGs I’ve played. I like how the combat forecast tells you exactly how much damage your unit will deal to the enemy, and how much your enemy will deal to you, along with the hit rate and amount of hits it will take.  An interesting thing is that when engaging the enemy during your turn, the enemy will attack you back if they survive your initial hit. Of course you can do the same, so I’ve had situations where enemies ganged up on the MC (who uses magic), miss with their attacks, and get murdered by MCs counter attack. Each unit can also carry multiple weapons and choose which one to use when attacking.

Music and visuals are great, and the character designs look very good. The plot is what you’d probably expect, but I won’t bother nitpicking because this game should be played for the gameplay and characters anyway. I married Lissa on the first playthrough because twintail imouto is wonderful. This is certainly the best SRPG I’ve played in a while.

  1. First Fire Emblem? Hohoho, now you understand what someone like me has been enjoying since the first FE game hit America (and most likely the game you table-flipped). Except as you can probably tell, this FE has evolved, and it seems to be for the better, based on pre-orders and stuff….Too bad I got my FE Friday, after I pre-ordered it months ago 😐 I blame Nintendo for not making enough copies!

    I want to see all the support conversations too, hence why I’m starting out Normal/Classic (sorry, I…I can’t do casual lol), but eventually I will probably make a separate file to do Hard/Classic. Then maybe sometime in 2022 I’ll try Lunatic/Classic xD

    And yes, first playthrough I also ended up marrying Lissa. I blame the VA and the hair–

    • I tried Lunatic/Casual and it’s brutal even on casual. Cannot get past Ch 2 lol. I’ll probably finally man up and go on Hard/Classic or something on my third playthrough.
