Video Review


Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest Combat

This is one of the best looking games on the 3DS, no doubt. Production values are sky high here, and between lovely sprite work and great looking 3D models and animations in combat, it's not hard to tell that this was a labor of love for Intelligent Systems. Facial details on some character models can look rather bad (particularly on the custom protagonist, with no options that look much like the 2D character portrait at all), but outside of that, it's a lovely looking game.

Audio Review


Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest Strategy

There's a sizeable amount of English voice acting here, with the majority of the cast turning out solid performances, though the few weak actors here are noticeably very poor, and the lack of Japanese options can sting a bit. The soundtrack contains a couple of really excellent pieces, but the majority of the music here is rather indistinct, and ends up fading into the background more than anything else.

Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest Takumi

While 'Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest' can stumble in a few places, namely the melodramatic plot and a few structural annoyances, this is ultimately a great SRPG that should please series fans. Some of the newer mechanics don't work quite as well as they should, but the tweaks to the core gameplay go a long way to making this a challenging, and immensely satisfying game.
