Fire Emblem Warriors Reviews
Fire Emblem Warriors does a better job of blending two disparate series than Hyrule Warriors did. Fire Emblem's ethos remains intact, perfectly accentuating, and enhancing Warrior's' patented hack-and-slash gameplay.
Fire Emblem Warriors might stand as one of the greatest Musou collaborations to hit the market. Great care was taken in incorporating both gameplay systems to create a thrilling and fun game to play. Yet it is so upsetting that where the combat rises above expectations, the menus felt like an afterthought. While that is annoying, Fire Emblem Warriors is still a hell of a time.
Fire Emblem Warriors charges headlong into battle with assured confidence, bolstered with a roster of heroes that effortlessly translate to Dynasty Warriors’ lust for over-the-top action. Your quest to save the kingdom of Aytolis may not find similar strength, but History Mode is resolute in wanting to captivate your attention for hours on end. For that, those that long to rack up ludicrous kill counts in the midst of battle will savour the thrills that this Nintendo Switch exclusive presents.
Easy to play with a satisfying, if over-simplistic, battle system but Fire Emblem Warriors does a good job of balancing a game that can be played by newcomers to Dynasty Warriors-style games, veterans of Fire Emblem or newcomers to both.
While the story isn’t as tight as you’d expect from a major Fire Emblem game the over the top shonen style battles and mixed cast definitely put together a fine show. I can definitely suggest the game to any fan of either series.
Fans looking for another methodical tactical RPG might be disappointed by Fire Emblem Warriors, but it really manages to unite these two distinct franchises. It feels incredibly natural to swap between singular hack-and-slash combat and the more strategic controlling of troops. It’s a real achievement by Koei Tecmo. If you’re patiently waiting for the next mainline Fire Emblem game, Warriors has you covered.
Fire Emblem Warriors is superb. It successfully translates the beloved RPG series without sacrificing any elements for which I have adored the series. With countless characters, a robust upgrade system and plenty of modes on offer, you'll sink hours into this stylish hack ‘n' slasher without even knowing it.
Fire Emblem Warriors has plenty to offer the players: an enormous amount of content and characters, especially among its post-campaign unlockables, a magnificent soundtrack and a fitting adaptation of the Fire Emblem series. While it is very competent at what it does, Fire Emblem Warriors could certainly use some of Nintendo's 'quality over quantity', as it feels like the characters could benefit from some variety but this is still a very competent and enjoyable proposal.

Not just a great game to bear the Fire Emblem name but also one of the best Warriors games out there.
Fire Emblem Warriors will be a great spin-off title for fans of the modern Fire Emblem games, with solid gameplay to boot.
A nice entry for the musou games but not its deepest iteration, nor is as profound as any other Fire Emblem title.

Despite making the most sense out of all Warriors crossovers so far, Fire Emblem Warriors hasn't quite lived up to its potential after the content-heavy Hyrule Warriors. Some questionable character omissions and a lack of modes, as well as an extremely subpar core narrative, is offset by relying on past scenarios in the History Mode. Fans of both sets of franchises will surely get good enjoyment out of this, though, as the strategic elements of Nintendo's long-running series meshes perfectly with the real-time combat of Koei Tecmo's property, creating one of the best Warriors entries, whereas it falls short of expectations as a spinoff of the RPG series.
Fire Emblem Warriors turned out to be a genuine surprise that I thoroughly enjoyed. It's the best Warriors game yet.
Like its Hyrulean brethren, Fire Emblem Warriors is a joyous action packed romp through hordes of faceless enemies in the company of some well-loved characters and all the trappings of a Fire Emblem game. It's not going to convince anyone who's unsure about the well-worn Warriors template, and it's far from being a technical showcase for the Switch, but it is raw, unadulterated fun packed with bags of fan service.
If you hate the musou games, Fire Emblem Warriors will hardly make you change your mind about the genre, but for everyone else it's a strongly recommended game thanks to its tactical and strategic elements.

I found the handheld mode to be done very well, performing (to the naked eye) almost equally to the docked performance
Fire Emblem's heroes are a natural fit for a Warriors game, but their world adds little depth to the aging and shallow hack-and-slash series.
A harmonious meeting of two traditions, Fire Emblem Warriors explores a different, yet no less beguiling, type of battlefield strategy.
The large-scale combat of Dynasty Warriors collides with the heroes and tactics-heavy gameplay of Fire Emblem in a wonderful venture filled with action and ample fan service.
