Even by Mu­sou stan­dards, the story is non­sen­si­cal. Omega Force con­trives the most flimsy of ex­cuses to assem­ble fa­mil­iar char­ac­ters from dif­fer­ent realms, as they join forces with tol­er­a­bly bland new­com­ers Rowan and Lianna, from whom you must choose your pro­tag­o­nist. It’s enamel-erod­ingly sac­cha­rine and fea­tures a to­tally pre­dictable rev­e­la­tion, but it’s still worth play­ing to pre­pare your char­ac­ters for His­tory Mode. Each sce­nario here is loosely based on a pre­vi­ous Fire Em­blem game, but in essence it’s Hyrule War­riors’ Ad­ven­ture Mode all over again, as you’re placed on a top-down grid pop­u­lated by tiny sprites, each of which rep­re­sents a bat­tle of some kind. Blend­ing short mis­sions, arena com­bat and fullscale skir­mishes, it should last you a good deal longer than the 12-hour cam­paign.
