As it stands, it's a nice tribute to the series and does Fire Emblem's mechanics justice be putting them in a shallow, effective action game shell. Fire Emblem fans will like it, especially recent fans who dig the 3DS games.

Fire Emblem Warriors uses some of the least interesting characters in the series and somehow creates some of the most fun I've had all year.

Overall, my time with Fire Emblem Warriors was fun but it's most certainly more fun for long time Fire Emblem fans. The fan service is top-notch and there are a ton of cool cameos from past characters in the franchise. The cutscenes and visuals are amazing–something I can't wait to see more of when the next Fire Emblem game comes to the Switch.

One of the best Warriors games thanks to a good variety of characters with cool and visually impressive movesets. The classic Fire Emblem Warriors mechanics match perfectly with the Warriors formula, adding challenge and strategy to the mix. Sadly the game lacks iconic character from many games including fan favourites Roy and Ike.

If you have a Switch and want this game, then it's really hard to find you a good reason to purchase this over the Switch version. I couldn't give you a single reason why, given the choice, you would ever side with the 3DS version, unless maybe you really love having a map on the second screen. It is of course always going to play second fiddle to it's more powerful comrade, naturally, but if you focus on pure gameplay then they are virtually identical, so don't think you're being short-changed if you only have a 3DS to play it on. It's a game, like Hyrule Warriors, that isn't for everyone, but those that enjoyed that game are going to have tons of fun with this title too. There is still life yet left in Nintendo's everlasting handheld.

Best gameplay in the series, running side by side with the fresh story of the possible, in this whole Fire Emblem Warriors.The game was not lucky to leave in one month with Mario Odyssey, which she passed in the shadow of big releases. Therefore, if You are not worried about trite and predictable plot, then You will be able to have a great time, marveling at how deep may be the mechanics of Warriors, she only needs to take the right direction!

For better or worse, Fire Emblem Warriors is another Musou game that only distincts itself by the addition of many elements from the FE series that surprisingly adapt really good to the concept of the genre. Fans of the franchise would get delighted with it; those that aren't, not so much.

Fire Emblem Warriors could've been much better if the script writers tried to create an interesting story and worked on characters more. But even so this is one of the best games in Warriors series with great graphics, atmospheric music and spectacular battles. Beautiful animations of special attacks and bright combos will please fans of the genre. If you liked Hyrule Warriors and Samurai Warriors 4, then you should pay attention to this game.

Just like Hyrule Warriors before it, Fire Emblem Warriors is another decent Musou game that feels worthy of the big Nintendo brand in its name - but with cheesy characters and dialogue and an unwelcome focus on the more recent FE games, Omega Force missed the chance to make it a standout title on Nintendo's new console.
