I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Fire Emblem games in general are not story-intensive games. The plot is interesting enough to follow, and the characters can be enjoyable but it's not something you'll be playing for story over and over again - definitely more of a gameplay game.

As a big Fire Emblem fan, I was honestly stunned at how terrible it was. Without delving into spoilers, the antagonists are some of the worst I've come across and the pacing is dreadful. If you're looking for a story, Awakening isn't for you.

I've never been a huge fan of Fire Emblem's stories. Like others have said, they're serviceable, but never a reason by themselves to play a game.

I think it's pretty good so far(only up to chapter 8). Not the best rpg I've played, but I definitely wouldn't call it "bad". That's for sure.

The story isn't going to blow your mind. But it's overall pretty solid. It compliments the extensive amount of content and the incredible gameplay nicely.

I care more about story than game play so.....

Then stop playing games and search videos/scripts of the story events.

The Time Travel can make the story iffy.

The good thing is that literally only one time travel character is actually story-related. The others are bonus and you never have to recruit, use, or even acknowledge their existence.

And the one necessary time traveler brings no contradictions to the story.

So I'll be damned, the BONUS, FANSERVICE content contradicts the story, not the story elements themselves.

The story itself is...alright.
