Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (DS)


Make one false move in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and a good part of your afternoon might be shot. That is, unless you're comfortable with treating your team of knights, archers and mercenaries as disposable heroes. Character death is one of the...

This review is based on a retail copy of the game provided by the publisher.

Game Review: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon


The Nintendo DS with two screens and stylus touch option seems like it was almost made for the purpose of strategy gaming. Using one screen to plan and one screen to execute commands, and commander in training can get an overall feel for the...

Cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of war. On your Nintendo DS, that is.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon Review (DS)


Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is a DS turn-based tactical RPG from the developer behind the Advance Wars series. Fundamentally the games are very similar, but Fire Emblem adds a deeper storyline with strong character development, as well as RPG elements...

The ButtonMasher verdict: Excellent turn-based tactical RPG that should please fans, and appeal to strategy gamers looking for a decent challenge.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon


With Fire Emblem being on practically every Nintendo system ever, it was inevitable it'd be making its debut on the DS sooner or later. In true Nintendo style of late, the DS instalment is a remake of the very first Fire Emblem (on the Famicom), which...

Accessible for newcomers ; Stylus controls work well ; Fine combination of strategy and battling ; Addictive game play

Story execution lacks depth ; Levelling up lacks balance ; Too easy for hardcore fans

The game can be played with the touch screen or traditional button play. Both control schemes work perfectly well and can be learned fairly quickly. The problem with this instalment is that it can become repetitive. I can imagine a lot of people may...

The bext strategy rpg games available


The fire emblem series of games are probably the best strategy rpg games available besides tactics ogre. All of them are tough, rewarding, and very enjoyable. Once a member of your party dies, he is gone for ever so you have to make some really tough...

a review from the learned man


To say the very least, fire emblem is a series of games that, like all RPGs requires patients and intelligence, but this is not just an RPG it is an strategy RPG which means that one will have to endeavour and have something known as a brain when...
