Should I try out Fire Emblem Awakening?

#1zzazzgamerPosted 5/17/2013 8:38:22 PM
I was watching a review and it looks fantastic. I've never played a turn basted strategy game before so i'm a bit nervous to take the plunge. I've never really been a fan of tun based games in general (although i can get through a Pokemon game every once and a while). What do you guys think? Thanks!

No. It's
overhyped and overrated.

It has a demo. Try it out.

Awakening is probably the most accessible game in the series. It has an Easy mode (though they call it Normal for some reason,) and you can choose Casual mode, which turns off the series' trademark permadeath.

This. It's very welcoming to new comers like myself. Also I think you meant casual, that turns off permadeath.

Damn, two mistakes in one post. I need to pay more attention. Stupid Dragon Quest IX.

Try it and if you like it grab it from Best Buy for $29.99 while it's cheap, until Saturday.

I'm in the same boat as TC. I would like to try it but I hate srpg type games. The grid type movements. Turn-based attacks. I prefer button mash like attacks Tales.

Since you've never played a Fire Emblem game before, you'll probably enjoy it. It's much more friendly to new players then any game in the series. With that being said, it's one of the worst Fire Emblem games I've ever played.
