FE7 and FE8: How are they?

#1-BrokenSpiral-Posted 3/3/2013 1:34:57 PM
I'm going to start them in about a month to make way for other things in my backlog. How good/bad are they, and what are some of their pros and cons?

Terrible story.

Pretty fun gameplay.

SS (FE8) is horrible
FE7 is god-tier

FE7's plot is much better than this game's plot. FE8 was a mess in every way, though.

I have an unhealthy love for FE7. FE8 is fine, but flawed.

FE7:
+Great unit balance
+Great map design with many primary / secondary objectives
+Lots of chapters and nice difficulty variety
+Great cast and an interesting story premise
-Some don't like the linearity

FE8:
+Branching classes
+Great music
+Post-game content
-Weak, hackneyed story
-Bland cast of characters
-Very, very easy

I loved FE7, it's the only one I had until Awakening because I was too stupid and naive back then not to buy the console games. I am still kicking myself to this day that I did not get them.

I'm hoping Nintendo realizes the error of their ways and releases FE8 on the e-shop.

Wasn't FE8 released on the ambassador program or something?

7 is great, that's about all I can really say, since it's better if you actually play it.

8 is just a dumbed down version of Awakening. Each class has 2 options, a few have skills on them (Generals are ridiculously overpowered by the way). There's an RNG trick in this one so you can actually get "perfect" level ups every time, but you'll need to reach a certain chapter first.

FE7 has the joy of being the first American FE game and is often compared to with other games.

That said it's always been my favorite. FE8, not so much. Definitely look into FE7

...way too many people hate Sacred Stones around here. Don't listen to them.
