About this game
Content Rating: Teen
Two versions of the franchise's new installment offer players an unprecedented choice: fight an opposing force or join the other side and try to make changes from within. For the first time in the series, players take on the role of the main character and command an army, while struggling to decide which path to follow: helping blood relatives or the family that raised him or her.

From maps and mission objectives to characters and presentation, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest rarely falters and constantly delights. It is an intense, stimulating and thrilling experience that is a must-buy for anyone who likes a game that challenges them on an intellectual level. As far as tactical strategy games go, it’s hard to see them getting any better anytime soon.
Fire Emblem's gameplay is second to none, but Conquest sports a lackluster narrative and questionable dialogue that brings the whole experience down.
The truth is that Conquest isn't really all that different to Awakening, but that's a hard thing to complain about. Awakening was a hell of a game, and so too is this. In some ways it's even superior - there's subtle changes to the game's already-excellent presentation, a wider variety of mission objectives than ever and generally more satisfying combat beats. Equally there's a few bits that are worse - things like offspring are poorly justified in the narrative where in Awakening they were central, and I find none of the cast to be as memorable as Awakening's best.
