At its core, Radiant Dawn is a game that's familiar to fans of the series. While Radiant Dawn makes no use of the Wii motion features, those passionate about an established series remaining faithful to its roots would feel such changes unnecessary....

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (WII)


While the presentation is certainly lacking, the gameplay still shines, so if you want a deep and lengthy strategy game for the Wii, look no further than Radiant Dawn.

The original strategy-RPG franchise makes an impressive debut on the Nintendo Wii.

Satisfying strategy gameplay; great soundtrack; pleasant graphics

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn


Nintendo's strategy RPG series marches onto Wii with Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. As in previous games, players must gradually build their army from dozens of pre-existing characters and then command them in turn-based combat on grid-based battlefields. Obj

Deep, challening - if frustrating - strategy game


I've long been a fan of turn-based strategy/rpg games. I've written in the past about some of the older ones I played, like the Shining in the Darkness series, and I couldn't begin to tell you how many times I played Warsong on my Sega Genesis. To...

Several deep systems like support, weapon forging and unique maps

Enemies can one-hit kill, dead characters do not come back, frustrating
