Fire Emblem is one of the greatest tactical strategy games of all times. With this amazing game as the source, coupled with the fun and energetic warriors style gameplay, something amazing is born. The warriors games are known for having huge lists of characters with different powers, taking on all sorts of enemies. This game is no exception and the Fire Emblem characters really do shine. In what looks to be an example of what Fire Emblem will look like in a main series game in the future Fire Emblem warriors really does shine.

This game is one that you can get into for as long as you like. There is always something to do in it, like in all other warriors games. This game is just about busting at the seams with content and that is a good thing. You will probably never find an end to the fun, unless you really are a completionist, because these games are just like that. This game is so fun because if you have a limited time all you have to do is find a short mission and you’ll feel like you spent your time wisely!

This game has a robust story mode, that is longer than the Hyrule Warriors Story mode. With voice acting, this game surpasses that by really letting you watch a story unfold. The story itself is similar to Hyrule Warriors, because heroes from different universes are all falling into the one the main characters live in. This is actually a good thing as it provides a solid base for why the events are occuring in the first place. While it might seem odd, these characters could float between any of the games and probably find a home anyway.

This game has characters from many different Fire Emblem games, from Fates, to Shadow Dragon, Awakening, and even Gaiden. These characters all come with their own storied paths which fit in part into the story mode. With the way the story ends though you have to wonder what happened to them when they returned. Along with all of the characters people know and love, there are also a few new characters. Rowan and Lianna are twins heirs to the throne of Aytolis. Rowan is a brash upstart who at first seemed way to cocky for his own good, while Lianna is a voice of reason. They both aren’t too keen on becoming King or Queen of Aytolis, but they know they will most likely have too. There is also Darios who is there childhood friend, but something about him may not be so good.

All the characters play as you would expect them to play. Characters like Marth, Chrom, and Lyn are fast as they simply wield swords. Robin is a bit slower as he has to ready his spells, along with Elise and Leo. Camilla and Cordelia both fly so they also take a little longer but can bust up foes. Frederick is a tank as usual and his horse can mow down enemies just by charging through them. It all takes a little adjusting to figure out what type of characters you will play as. Though, you will probably just end up picking your favorites and will learn how to control them. This is certainly par for the course for this series, as the series itself is quite fanservicey in that regard.

There is also a History mode which is comparable to Adventure mode from Hyrule Warriors. In this mode you get to relive historic battles from the series. There are missions to complete and heroes to unlock like, Lyn, Celica, Female Robin, and Male Corrin. This mode is cool because it shows off what happened in these games while giving you more game to play. All of the missions have different directives and it is interesting seeing how things change. As you progress through the missions the battle field changes and different routes pop up changing the history. It is all very interesting to see things go differently.

Being a Fire Emblem game there is also a decent tactical side to the game. While you are playing you can adjust your characters locations to give you the edge. You can also order them to different locations midbattle so they complete objectives. They will devastate enemies as you do, and that is always a good thing. Traveling on foot isn’t always going to cut it and you will need to have a good assortment of weapon types to really get the job done.

As it is a Fire Emblem game there is also Pairing up. You can pair up units to devastate opponents with a combo attack if both of their gauges are full. They will also aid each other in battle which is the norm. The other cool thing is that when the relationship is maxed between certain characters, a scene will be shown. This is fun because most of them are between characters who would never normally meet. This leads to fun encounters that really need to be seen to be believed.

The game itself also has a robust achievement system which is great for adding play time, a good collection of things to collect, and a great soundtrack. The music is great because depending on the stage you can hear remixes of classic songs from the series. It is always cool to see what remixes the creators come up with. You never know when  you will hear a riff from one of the past games and that is wonderful.

Fire Emblem warriors is a fantastic game and one that is surely not to be missed. If you like either series you should do yourself a favor and at least try out this game. There is so much to do, and so much game to play. Plus, with DLC coming out including 9 new characters, 9 history maps, new costumes, and new support conversations this game could last till the end of time. So do yourself a solid, and engage in some exhilarating Fire Emblem Warriors Combat today!
