Is Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon really that bad?

Don't really have the patience to locate/play the console ones while I wait for Awakening.

Go ahead and play it, but if you don't like know that just about every other game in the series is better.

It's not a bad game, but I wouldn't spend money on it.

Yes you would.

Most units get 2 lines of dialouge if not named marth. Their joining and death quote. No rescue, skills, bland story, less classes overall and a ruined online.

Every unit gets more lines in its sequel though and its sequel is amazing and fully fan translated (and fantastically at that).

I had a fair bit of fun with shadow dragon it has plenty of difficulty settings and while a flawed fire emblem in terms of content i enjoyed the hell out of it.

This. Shadow Dragon is not as bad a game as other people make it sound like, IMO, it's just not nearly as good as any other Fire Emblem availible in America by FAR.

Also, this.

I've played both Shadow Dragon and the Awakening demo and you will literally see how lacking Shadow Dragon is in characterization by comparison just from the little you've seen of Awakening in the demo.

I liked Shadow Dragon, but didn't really care for Radiant Dawn. My main issue with RD is that you can't let ANYONE die. Of course, you don't really want your units dying anyway, but I still don't like that.
