Fire Emblem: Revelation is an excellent final act to the Fates storyline. Its balance of difficulty and accessibility means that both veteran players and newcomers can enjoy it without feeling bored or overwhelmed, and its story starts slowly, but quickly becomes a worthy finale to this tactical trilogy.

The best of the Fire Emblem Fates trilogy and one of the best portable strategy games ever made, with a perfect blend of the best elements of the first two chapters.

Fire Emblem Fates' neutral path delivers the biggest payoff of its three storylines, and is an incredible accomplishment in marriage of storytelling and gameplay.

[I]t's still Fire Emblem. You're going to get the same great character interactions, spousal bonding, enthralling battles, and all of the heartache if you choose the permadeath option. If you nabbed the Special Edition of Fates, you're already good to go for Revelation. For the rest of you, picking it up as DLC next month in addition to whatever story you already chose is a safe bet, provided that you liked your first taste.

Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation offers more of the same fantastic gameplay found in Birthright and Conquest. Fans of the series will be well served by the extra campaign, and for anyone that's already played through at least one of the other storylines, it's an essential addendum to one of the 3DS' finest titles.

Fire Emblem: Fates offers new features and gameplay that weigh down the series' tried and true gameplay, rather than enhance it.

Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation, the final chapter in Fire Emblem's new trilogy closes the history of this new opus and provides a very sharp gameplay with a marvelous visual environment. Players who are looking forward to a rich and well-crafted plot, though, might find themselves disappointed, as Revelation rather stands out in the gameplay front and its new scenarios end up falling behind expectations.
