Calling all Fire Emblem fans! Get ready for another great title in this hit series by Nintendo. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is a remake of one of the original Fire Emblem games and gives players a look at how the story began. With a great story line and hours of your favorite game-play, the game just proves that blue hair really can make a hero.

Evil Dragons

Whoever said that dragons were mean hadn’t met Medeus, king of the dragonkin. This nasty guy conquered the continent of Archanea and ruled with an iron fist. But a hero came to the continent's rescue and defeated the evil king, leading the land in an age of peace. But the bad guy has to return. When his father is betrayed and his castle captured, young Prince Marth must rescue the land and become the hero his ancestor once was.

A Hero is Made

Some of you might recognize the game's hero, Prince Marth, from the Super Smash Bros. series. With great sword skills and a noble attitude, players will enjoy working with this hero to save the day. The game is played in the typical Fire Emblem style, by moving your men around a grid to battle enemies, pick up treasure and meet people who will become part of your party.


Double Screen Fun

Although you move your men around on the bottom screen of the DS, the top screen displays all of the tutorial info, and character info and makes it easy to switch between the info. Unfortunately if you aren’t big on reading the little booklets the games come with, you won’t figure out what all of the buttons do unless you start randomly pressing them. The biggest problem you will have is trying to figure out which character you are about to use if you don’t have the character info on the top screen. Units of the same type (archer, pirate, knight) all look the same on the bottom screen so it can be sort of confusing.


Bottom Line

If you love the Fire Emblem series then you won’t be disappointed. This awesome game manages to stuff all of the great parts of the games you’ve grown to love onto the Nintendo DS and still have decent graphics. If you have a long car ride ahead of you or just a little free time during the week, you can’t go wrong with a classic.

(Ship name: Star-Spider) This child is a bringer of good throughout the world, wearing a spandex costume looking like a normal super-hero's, but includes a fashionable tutu and pink material. The web that she shoots out of her hand hand be melded into any shape they want with a spoken spell, depending on the situation and amount of web they have available. If she gets her hand on her mother's wand, this child can be quite a force to be reckoned with: she has much more natural talent than her mother but much, much less control, and can cause massive amounts of collateral damage if she is not kept in check. She has an optimistic look on life and a perky attitude that can sometimes be annoying, but can become dead serious in the face of danger and is perfectly tuned for the life of a vigilante, no matter how much the villains laugh when they first see her. Next ship: Bill Cipher x Dipper Pines (Bill-Dip)
