Beginning Of A New Legend!

The Good

The 1st title of the wonderful Fire Emblem series, a game that would be later known for an hybrid genre of RPG & STRATEGY. Released in 1990 exclusively in Japan, Fire Emblem was developed by Intelligent Systems and was published by Nintendo.It is known as Fire Emblem:The Dark Dragon, informally in the Western audiences. The game came to be known for its turn-based strategy elements with a decent story. The game follows the adventures of a young prince, Marth, on his journey to regain his kingdom from the evil clutches of the kingdom Dohrua.

The Bad

The most challenging part of the Fire Emblem series was initiated by the very beginning and that is, a character once defeated in a battle will be unavailable for the entire game. This is an aspect of the game that has dual understandings, some take this as an bad feature of the game whereas some take it as a real challenge.

The Bottom Line

The legendary starting of an epic series. A must try for Strategy lovers. This game is really something, I will not hesitate in writing that it is a genre-defining series. I will give it a 4 out of 5 rating.
