        I never played those ones either. Seemed like a huge scam selling two different versions of the game and then selling the ending that merges both as a separate DLC. A shame too because it did look interesting, and the big titty purple hair woman is still one of the hottest FE girls.

Obviously he is going to compare it to the popular recent entries, and comparing it to Fateswakening makes no sense when you specifically want to make the point that the characters and worldbuilding being shit like in those games is a negative.

        At most you're fucking around with rings and bands, which are more like accessories from which you can inherit some extra skills. Theres non of that class teaching tedium. I didnt mind the class teaching in my first playthrough, though it was nice, but like you said, the game expect you to play it 4 times and it absolutely sucks the fun out of it along with the 60% of maps being reused with every route

      It does. But just like every game since Awakening if the character is a minor they "LOCALIZED" it and the game doesnt age up its characters like the predecessor to keep it safe.

      Did it ever occur to you that the two fanbases don't fully overlap? I've never played a single Dragon Quest and don't care to. The fact is, Fire Emblem games set a much higher standard than this a long time ago and it's very disappointing to go from a damn near masterpiece like 3 Houses to a game that is a half-assed downgrade from it in every way. It's just more Nintendo laziness like what keeps happening to Pokémon. Removal of features and mechanics, cutting corners, restricting player choice and freedom. None of these are good things and should be criticized. A straight forward, generic anime story that you have no agency or control over is a big step back from what they have already done in the past. It's just uninspired and lazy, and seems like they wanted to cheap out on development costs.

            The narrative isn't a good excuse either because during the first half it's the fucking same for all routes and the second half barely changes that much. Look at Silver Snow and Verdant Wind for crying out loud.

              Silver Snow and Verdant Wind may be similar, but they still have thematic differences such as the focus on the dynamic between Byleth and Edelgard vs the conditions Claude grew up in. And even if those two are similar, Crimson Flower and Azure Moon are still very different from Snow and Wind. Which is more than you can say about Engage having one route. That's why its smaller in scope from a story telling perspective.

    I'll hold off on judging the story. I think people nowadays conflate a simple story with a bad one. In my opinion a well executed simple story has much more value than one that tries defying expectations or having a lot of twists for the sake of it. For example my favorite manga is Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer and that's a textbook example of a simple generic story executed in the best way possible. From what I've seen from the cutscenes and such, there's a distinct possibility this could be the case with Engage.

      I don't know what your standard for a well executed story is, but the protagonist of a medieval fantasy war story donning modern yoga pants and engaging in some joint cooking with people that tried to murder him days or even hours ago sure doesn't fit mine.
      Don't get me wrong, I'd be fine if Engage was the most generic ass >an ancient evil has awakened story out there, but it doesn't even appear to try to have the most remote amount of internal consistency or potential for immersion. Even the mobile game seems more concerned about actually trying to tell an immersive story, and that had characters running around in swimwear and reindeer costumes since year one.

    I will say it here and now; this game will be replayed a lot by the FE community. 3H has a good first play, but then you want to drown to replay it, it becomes a huge mountain, it is the least replayed FE game by the community even though it has 3(4) routes, since it is very uphill and repeats many maps, as data 3H has less total maps than Engage that only has 1 route. 3H is double or triple in length, but half is filler. 3H is fine as a unique experience so as not to play it again and to remember it as beautifully as possible, not as a video game. Engage is a much better video game.

    Fucking depressing. Nintendo shit the bed, again.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      I believe a large part of that is because the character you play as, Shez, acts as a better avatar character than Byleth. Despite Shez being voiced and having a defined personality already, they bounce off the 3 House cast a lot easier because of their status as just another mercenary. Shez' C Support conversation with Edelgard comes into mind, and Lysithea's C support as well. Byleth being a string of multiple choice questions can't really compare to Shez' full on voice acting in the game. It's a shame that Byleth can only shine as a character in 3 Hopes where they get written off to the side eventually. Their supports with Jeralt really showed what could've been in 3 Houses.

      • 2 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Three Houses is much better than Three Hopes, but Shez was a decent player character and it did an admirable job of telling an alternate version of that game's story and giving different takes on the events and characters that only solidifies how great and well developed all of them are. It's extremely sad that a Dynasty Warriors spinoff is a much better Fire Emblem game than Fire Emblem Engage though. What the fuck were they thinking with this shit? They basically are releasing a half finished game with a fraction of the content of Three Houses and a way worse story and characters. They should actually be ashamed.

    It's a fair cop.
    The fact that the game doesn't have as many story variables as Three Houses which often had to adjust interactions based on what route, what chapters have occurred, shifts in dynamics(e.g. if you're between supports when Mercedes and Annette have their fight), should've made it easier to go wholehog on character interactions.
    As it is, they made their bed, maybe they can squeeze out one more FE for the Switch or get one in for Switch 2's launch year.

    I looked at these reviews and from my perspective they made me more interested in Engage. The things people were upset about were mostly that some things I didn't like in Three Houses aren't in Engage.

    Everything. They got rid of everything they were doing right, and cranked out a piss poor story. Nobody cares about Fire Emblem for the combat system, which is shallow and inferior to other games in the genre. The fact that Midnight Suns has a better attempt at the base and relationship building aspects between missions says it all. Because that game also has significantly better, fresher tactics gameplay.

    This is looking like the MH: Rise or Bayonetta 3 of Fire Emblem. It takes all the worst aspects of the series and makes it the focal point.

    >What went wrong?
    Skimming throug the criticism: Essentially reviewers complain that it's not a dating sim anymore but praising the gameplay. Which is exactly what I wanted from a new Fire Emblem. I found 3H to have too much bloat in form of the freeroam and social bullshit.

      You can stop being contrarian to defend a bad game now. It's ok to criticize when they fuck up this badly. And Nintendo does nothing but keep fucking up this badly with all of their franchises.

      Depends on what you're after
      If you want all the big answers to the plot, go Golden Deer
      If you want a character piece about a fallen prince finding redemption, go Blue Lions
      If you're a waifufag, pick Black Eagles and then decide whether you want to fuck the midget empress or the pope

      For the love of god, do not make the same mistake I did and let Ganker meme you into doing Blue Lions. Its gay fujo garbage. If you’re a man and picked a male character, then anywhere else is better. You will probably be too fatigued to play another route after you’re done since the game is such a long slog

        Awful bait, don't listen to this gay. The Blue Lions story is kino as fuck. That group of characters are the heroes and protagonists, everyone else are side characters at best or villains. You get the true story of the game and an epic second half as they fight to save the world.

    I've been wanting to get into FE for a long time, but was always discouraged by the censorship. It seems like almost every game in the series is censored in the West, even some of the old games.
    Which games aren't censored? Keep in mind I'll emulate all of them on PC so I can use uncensor patches if they exist.

      Well the first six games and 12 aren’t officially translated (besides the first one which was limited release on switch and wasn’t a translated rom file, it was an original jp rom with text overlayed) so those are safe from censorship, awakening, fates, 3houses and now engage I know have varying levels of censorship, fates being the absolute worst offender, 3houses is probably the least tampered with of the modern era

      Anonymous

      It was too slow, even though FE4 is fun at times it just constantly grinds to a halt. I think that's why Kaga made FE5 basically FE3 part 2 (Hard Mode) instead. His maps in VS are bigger generally than FE maps but nowhere near Juggy maps.

      >takes hours to complete a single level mimicking the feel of a grand military campaign every single level
      You mean it plays like shit with one or two men killing every map on their own but taking forever to do so, and the maps directly reflecting the world map just makes Jugdral look puny rather than anything.
      If it wasn't for Thracia actually making the scale much more clear, Jugdral would have felt like it could fit in a single country in the other FEs.
      FE4 Maps are absolute bottom of the barrel bad.

        Very early into the game he had a dream with him evil and fully red hair so I assume it's gonna be explained later, if I had to guess I'd say he's the offspring of a good dragon and an evil dragon and his hair turn completely red when he's overrun by his evil side
