The game is simply amazing. The characters are lovable, the story would be great for a console, and the game gives you infinite hours of replayability with it's many different jobs, levels, loves, and missions for each character. The game has some gripes, such as the inventory screen being semi-confusing, but the game itself is so fun and amazing any chink in the armor would be moot.

I played the demo and knew I had to have it. I already had a 3DS but this game pushed me to go XL and I bought the Fire Emblem special edition 3DSXL.

This is just the BEST RPG I have ever played...

Pretty much a must own for the 3DS. Best game on the system so far? Maybe. The amount of sheer content available in the game is astonishing and the visuals are beautiful both in and out of cutscenes. Even utilizes the 3D element pretty well. One of my favorite games on the system.

Hands down one of the must-own games on the 3DS. I spent many many hours on this. Even when I was grinding, I didn't find it boring. Great animation, music, story, characters, gameplay. It's just packed with so much love and attention from the developers.

An Excellent Fire Emblem game. Intelligent systems brings us another game in the awesome FE series with Fire Emblem Awakening. The 13th installment in the FE series reintroduces the skill system for the first time since Radiant Dawn on the Wii, and a traversable map for the first time since Sacred Stones on GBA. While FEA's story may not be as good as previous games in the series, FEA still boasts some awesome Characters, and 100s of supports and pairings to play with. + avatar costomization!

Beautiful turn base rpg game the customization has no variety but it's one great beautiful game

This game is phenomenal. The amount of content is so extensive and the execution in game play is nearly flawless. I was never that into tactical rpgs but now I am sold. The marriage system is really cool too. As Mr.Hammond would say, Intelligent Systems "spared no expense". Great game, great review, a must play. The 3DS is proving to be an awesome system.

Nintendo hit a home run with this game. Awakening is the perfect starting point for any newcomers to the franchises, as it adds a "casual" mode that turns off permanent death: a feature even veterans like due to the amazing character development in this game. The visuals are stunning, all the characters are likable, and the gameplay is addictive. Selling a lot better than expected in the west, I think Fire Emblem has earned its place as one of Nintendo's star franchises.

The best RPG on the 3DS without question. Although IS underestimated the hardware this still takes use of what they had. I've beaten the game at least 3 times, and there is so much content without having to pay for DLC it isn't even funny.

The best game on the 3DS hands down. Since i have gotten it i haven't played really any other 3DS game besides Pokemon and even then i came back to fire emblem, Great game.

this is probably the best 3d fire emblem.I spent 85 hours on this one and enjoyed it all the way through.

The gameplay of Fire Emblem Awakening is fantastic and so are its beautiful vibrant characters. What I'm most impressed about it is how well the streetpass feature is greatly executed in this game.

 Polar Rescue - Vectrex
"They should have the submarine view on the the overlay rather on the TV." - secuda

 Streets of Rage - Sega Genesis
"A must-have for any beat-em-up fan!" - easelkillya

 Kessen - PlayStation 2
"Koei seemed to combine the best of Dynasty Warriors with some of Romance of the Three Kingdoms to make an enjoyable action-strategy game. I liked the second one more, but the first was one of the lesser known, but stand out titles at launch for the PS2. If you can find it, it's very affordable and worth looking into." - Xodyak

 Hello Kitty Kruisers - Wii U
"Hello Kitty's cute and all, but I think I have enough boring Mario Kart clones." - Soul of Natsu

 Streets of Rage - Sega Genesis
"While not as good as its sequel, SoR does many things better than a lot of beat-em-ups for the time. Faster paced and better controlling than Golden Axe, two player co-op unlike Final Fight for the SNES, and one helluva sound track makes SoR one of the best games in its genre for its time. If you can get this for a decent price, don't pass it up. Or enjoy it on Sonic's Ultimate Collection on the PS3 or 360." - Xodyak
