FIRE EM­BLEM 2003

In­tel­li­gent SYS­TEMS

Games TM - - RETRO -

Like Ad­vance Wars, Fire Em­blem was al­ready an es­tab­lished fran­chise in Ja­pan, with this par­tic­u­lar GBA game be­ing the se­cond ti­tle to be re­leased on the sys­tem, and the sev­enth over­all. while it looks fun­da­men­tally very sim­i­lar to Ad­vance Wars, it fea­tures nu­mer­ous dif­fer­ent me­chan­ics in­clud­ing a weapon tri­an­gle sys­tem and per­madeath (which makes the game very chal­leng­ing if you want to com­plete it with all the orig­i­nal heroes). Char­ac­ters can also be up­graded once a spe­cific level is achieved and weapons slowly erode over time. it now fetches a pretty penny on­line.
