Fire Em­blem: Shad­ows of Valen­tia

Hyper - - FEATURE -

Putting Fire Em­blem on the list twice feels like a cheat, but Shadow of Valen­tia is a game that de­serves more credit than it got. This take on Fire Em­blem is more tra­di­tional than the other FE games on the sys­tem – it’s a re­make of the sec­ond game in the se­ries – but the dun­geon-quest­ing and dual sto­ry­lines were great fun. It also in­tro­duced a lim­ited-use rewind me­chanic, which is, hon­estly, a god­send – Fire Em­blem needs per­madeath to re­ally work, but be­ing able to wind back af­ter an en­emy lands an ex­tremely lowodds crit­i­cal on your best healer is a con­ces­sion we can live with.
