Fire Emblem Warriors is a game for those who are first fans of Fire Emblem, strategy games and button masters in which you find satisfaction distributing sword blows among hundreds of enemies.

The interesting usage of all the aspects from the tactical RPG series certainly added to some freshness to the standard Musou formula, and it was great to see a lot of the characters given the high-definition treatment and the interactions between them are sure to please a lot of fans.

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.

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.

A complete disappointment. Fire Emblem Warriors is by far the weakest Fire Emblem game to date.

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.

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!

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.

Even though Fire Emblem Warriors is filled with great characters and Fire Emblem elements, it's more Warriors than it is Fire Emblem.
