Item Description

Medeus, the king of the dragonkin, has been revived and is forming an alliance with a fearsome sorcerer named Gharnef. Together, they threaten to the throw the entire continent of Archanea back to an age of chaos and war. Now, it's up to young Prince Marth and his small band of loyal followers to rise up and rally all those left in the land to make one last desperate push to free Archanea from the tyranny of the Shadow Dragon.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is a turn-based strategy game with a fantasy setting. Players alternate turns with opponents, moving their pieces (units) and attacking enemy units on the battlefield. There are dozens of units and different weapons and magic spells, each with its own strategic benefits-high-flying Pegasus knights move effortlessly over varied terrain, fast-moving mounted cavaliers can use swords and lances, unarmed curates use healing staves to mend the wounds of other units and so on.

Many groups play a part in a story but undoubtedly the story's protagonist, Prince Marth, will be the focus for most. Marth has been featured in the Super Smash Bros. series and has been extremely popular within those games, but this is his first time starring in a Fire Emblem game in the United States. At Marth's side is a support of fearless fighters, including the brave Caeda, a princess of the Talys kingdom. Other major characters include the evil sorcerer Gharnef and the sole surviving descendant of the royal House Archanea, Princess Nyna.

A faithful remake of the original game with additional flair added in the form of forging weapons, hidden support bonuses, and the weapon triangle. The game is loads of fun for those who like turn-based strategy with RPG elements.

A game originally offered on a 512KB cartridge couldn't offer too much in the way of text though - so be wary that the plot won't be as good as later games. I also missed the "rescue" and "shove" commands from later games, but that just shows you how the series has improved.

Good old nostalgic
Reminded me of my experience playing fire emblem on the GBA. This time with improved graphic and game-play.
Nice nostalgic for me...
And for those enjoying the old series on the GBA, buy this game too...

Fire Emblem continues
Fire Emblem continues without really altering too much of its formula - this is both good and bad, but for the faithful, this is a good thing.

The game has a new visual style compared to other DS outings, which may or may not be to people's liking, however gameplay is very much in tact.
