YOU DO THE MARTH
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.
