Man, imagine what kind of game would make me give a 9/10. A boy can dream.

bluexy Yes, you loved this game SO much that you gave it an 8.
Pretty sure if Blizzard made it, you'd have given it a 10 though.

I'm still not through what is probably the "first third" you mention, so I can't really say if I agree or not since I haven't hit the points you didn't like blue. Will say this though, so far 10/10 glad I dropped the $200 for the 3DS Bundle to join in on release.

I guess I can comment on missing something though, or the possibility of hidden or miss-able content;
Missing something, or the chance to anyway, has been a theme of Fire Emblem games I've played. Though it's been a long time since I've visited the series, so recent titles may not reflect that as much. In Fire Emblem 6, one of the hardest games of this type I've ever played, there are secret hidden missions, branching off secret hidden missions, that are unlocked through completing a specific amount of prior secret missions. All with specific criteria that must be met, and most are easy to miss. A ridiculously long game with tons of stuff to miss, and I love it for that. Was sad and rather disappointed when that faded from the series completely by Fire Emblem 8: Sacred Stones (the last game I played before this one).

A very well-written review. I agree with you too, it felt like the game lost some of its momentum a couple of times. Thankfully, the characters are interesting enough, and the relationships appealing, to go back and replay some of the chapters I rushed through, if not just to compare children.

Oh yes he can, as of right now this game gets a ten from me. I have really fallen in love with it.

If Square Enix made this game, its cutscenes would be 20+ minutes long each and there would be so many more of them.

Er mah gad cutsceens!

Seriously, it's like someone has made this for me personally. Hillarious dialogue paired with grinding. I'm in heaven!

Ok I have to say the cutscenes can be kind of boring, other than that it's a ok game.

Cutscenes make me sleepy sometimes.

Oh really? I must say I was pretty impressed with the cutscenes in the game considering.

Thrawn, pretty much the biggest problem with cut scenes is them taking too long and it's like 1:00 in the morning you need to save and shut it off.
