    Still a Classic

    Played this game on release in 2003, and recently picked it back up to play through again. Although in 2020 it's a pain to be navigating a small GBA screen with a lot going on, I still enjoy just how much thought and det... Read Full Review

    Uncle Longfellow's Fire Emblem Review

    Backstory: When I was younger I would put an obscene amount of video games on my Christmas list each year (I still do, but that's completely irrelevant). In 2003, at the tender age of 11, I was perusing the Black Friday... Read Full Review

    While this game and the Gameboy Advance may be old it doesn't make it less fun. So dust off that old GBA because this game deserves your time. Fire Emblem is actually the seventh in a long line of Japaneese RPGs with... Read Full Review

    Fire Emblem is a good game by all means.

    Fire Emblem is a loved series and is known as a fun, but deep strategy game. It's characters have made appearances in the Super Smash Bros series, but can the Gameboy Advance version hold up to today's standards? Game... Read Full Review

    The best thing on the GameBoy Advance.

    Strategy RPG's do not instantly appeal to everyone, but Fire Emblem is a game that both challenges and charms. Build an army from a vast array of classes, from the rogue to the mage, level them up, and battle them thr... Read Full Review
