    The graphics look amazing on Retina screens, the artwork for characters and battle sprites is well-done, the music and voice acting is incredible, and the controls for combat feel much more intuitive on touch screens. The game is also pretty generous with giving you the premium currency at a steady pace, but you can also purchase more if need be. The story is fairly captivating and there are plenty of other modes to keep you busy for a while, and overall the game is great for both newbies and veterans alike.

    This is Nintendo’s best mobile effort yet.

    This is not the Fire Emblem you know, though the strategic fights, characters and bizarre music are still there. This is a game that seems simpler, but will make it for the long haul.

    A free-to-play game ideal for quick matches. The simplified gameplay makes it even more accessible for new fans to try and get into the series.

    The great controls and superb illustrations of the characters, as well as good sound don't make it up for the dull plot and repetitive gameplay. It's a good way to get in contact with the world of Fire Emblem, but will leave players wanting the real thing instead of this watered down version.

    It might not be the Fire Emblem game you wanted on mobile, but it's the one that we've got, and it's pretty solid.

    Fire Emblem Heroes is a watered down version of the traditional Fire Emblem experience. While it’s completely possible to enjoy the game without spending a single cent, it’s designed with the pay to win model in mind so that spending cash will ensure a quick and fast route to victory. Coupled with the extremely aggravating and excessive stamina system, those trying to play the game for free will encounter numerous roadblocks and turnoffs. If you’ve never tried Fire Emblem before, this is a quick and easy introduction, but if any of its concepts appeal to you, you’re better off abandoning Heroes and jumping into any of the other great entries in the series.

It has a good history(no so deep like other FE but good enough), and you can use character for every past FE, and well that matter, specially for fans of the series. personally i don't like the chibi art style(big head and cute) but at least in portraits and conversations they look with classic art style.

    cons: not relationship between characters, no permanent death(if your hero dies you can use it later)

Toma todo lo bueno de Fire Emblem y lo hace mas simple para el disfrute de todos, y aun así es casi igual de divertido que los juegos principales.
    Que las reviews de aquí no te engañen, muchos de los problemas que este juego tenían ya han sido resueltos, ademas es uno de los gachas mas generosos actualmente, dan una buena cantidad de orbes por mes ademas de algunas veces hasta regalar algún 5 estrellas.
    Si quieres iniciar tu entrada a la franquicia, esta puede ser una buena primera opción.

The interesting and ever-more-exciting game features make it a fun experience. 8.8 out of 10 as its story-line doesn't feel that exciting and some of the randomness and unequal distribution of items can be inflated. *note submitted at version: 2.2.0 Expand

If you want to get a taste of what the series is about or want to experience some nostalgia, I recommend downloading this game onto your mobile device. But if you’re one of those people who don’t enjoy turn-based strategy games, then Fire Emblem Heroes is probably not for you.

Not the Fire Emblem experience I was hoping for. Still, excellent gacha game to get your favorite FE characters and make a team with crossovers, also maintaining a fast gameplay. Expand

    Casino Simulator: Heroes

    Probably the most DISGUSTING Nintendo title out there for iOS. I spent around 250 Orbs (which would cost more than 200euro if you bought them with money) and opened ONLY duplicate trash heroes. From the 250 Orbs that I gathered F2P for more than 6 months I only got 4 Gold 5-star heroes. The rest were all 3-star duplicate useless trash. From the 4 Gold Heroes, 2 of them were the same, meaning one is instantly useless.

    Such casino tactics should be sued.
