“I feel odd saying it, but Fire Emblem: Heroes is the most complete mobile game I’ve ever had the chance to play and it feels much more like the full-fledged experiences that you can find on Nintendo’s own devices.”
IGN (Feb 07, 2017)
Fire Emblem Heroes is simplified, but certainly a good start when it comes to bringing the series beloved combat to phones and tablets. The flimsy story doesn’t bring any new ideas to the table and the blind-item system can get frustrating when it refuses to give you a competent hero, but the fantastically fun battles and ability to reunite with old Fire Emblem friends from anywhere makes it worth the free download.

Intelligent Systems has a done a fantastic job boiling down the complicated tactical elements from the series into something lightning fast and enjoyable. Battles in the main franchise can take up to an hour to finish, depending on various factors. In Heroes, everything is simplified. Your armies have fewer units, maps are smaller, and elimination of the other team is the only objective. The tradeoff here is that Heroes isn’t as rich or challenging as the main entries, often being weighted in favor of the player (especially if you’re lucky enough to draw a couple of strong characters). This simplicity doesn’t provide the depth fans may expect, but it allows you to complete matches while you’re standing in line or killing time.
