I actually liked being able to grind outside of the main chapters... I had tons of trouble getting strong, promoted characters in FE7.

Yeah, I don't really care about grinding. Hell, it should be an option in all SRPGs.

I think the only SRPG I enjoyed that disallowed grinding was Vandal Hearts -- and even then you could "grind" levels with an exploit.
The sauce is weak with this one. But...if he could be churned, he would make a powerful stir-fry.

I enjoyed it. The game was a bit easy, but it was very fun. It has the same map system as awakening, and that was pretty cool. The characters were also likable >.<

I thought it was good if you kept grinding to a minimum, much like this game.

I used it to give the recruit units a decent base then played normally. It was definitely easier, but by no means bad. It's a great intro to the series as well, if you're looking to recommend a friend try the series out.

It did quite a few things right: open map, infinite grinding with the towers, branched promotions. But overall, the map, character, story, and difficulty quality was all toned way down from Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword, the first GBA game to come to America.

It's too easy. You can beat the game using pre-promotes and promoting all your units at level 10, though it's harder that way. I'll admit it's a good entry for new players, and Ephraim's route is fairly challenging compared to Eirika's.

I don't understand how anyone could bash SUCKred Stones yet love Awakening (especially for the lack of difficulty), really

I mean..... really, SS had more thought put into its chapter design

Every Fire Emblem game is easy. I mean granted I've never played above the medium difficulty, but every game can be beaten by using only a few characters throughout the whole game. Yes, for all the English ones but Blazing Sword, it was very easy to add a bunch of overpowered characters via grinding, but the games have always been easy if you play them that way. This game is no different.

Good post.
