I'm still in the prologue and they present the Idea of sacrificing one of my people so I can keep going

at first I was like FRIENDSHIP IS MY STRENGTH and figured I can wipe out the enemies before the knights show up

but I just got swarmed on and murdered by them

I can't believe it

they REALLY want you to do this!

I just simply didn't see this coming. I'm pretty amazed!

Also, once I start this over, its totally gonna be the archer I just saved

I've only played PoR before

b8ers have taught me some terminology and said the "Jagen" is the prepromoted horse person whos your crutch in the beginning, but gets pretty weaker once people surpass him

I remember Titania was that role in PoR

so I was considering killing him

but I dunno, I like his portrait, and having a get out of jail card with him around in the first chapters is too tempting

also I never used Archers before, so I think I'm going with him

The connection you make with the characters is nowhere near as strong since they are more or less disposable

I recall it being a bit clunky and not as pretty.

Its like a remake of the first one from japan or something so not being up to snuff makes sense, but that was my take from it. I couldnt get connected with it

Characters are bland and unmemorable. So's the story though at least that's pretty normal for FE.

You need to kill off characters to get the optional side chapters.

Gameplay removes mechnics from the previous games like shove, rescue, skills, etc. Evasion is mostly non-functional as a build now (spd and luck's effect on evade are halved), which pretty much leaves everything as simple atk/hit/spd checks.

Normal mode is way too easy. Every other difficulty mode has reinforcements that act as soon as they appear.

It's not an awful game or anything but it's pretty clearly the worst game in the series that we got in North America.

I mean

like

its the first in the series, right?

so of course theres not gonna be much characterization. This is an NES game, right? well, Famicom, but still

thats like me complaining that FF1 isn't as epic as 6 or something

and clunky? how is it clunky? you're not using the characters themselves, you're moving a cursor along a grid. how can that be clunky? I don't get the sense of clunkiness by choosing options from these menus

No, but by this point it's kind of "hey, here have the experience of FE1 if you're somewhere else in the world. With every failed mechanic of FE1."

It was a remake to give us the world of Marth and the only thing they updated was like... sprites and a few changes with characters (less overblown sword users). And gaiden chapters, which was a terrible mechanic in this game.
I'll just go back to gifs. Not like the winner was gonna click my topic.

I only played a few chapters; I think I remember it being okay but not great?

I thought Echoes (remake of Gaiden) was really good, though.
