    The marriage between the Warriors and Fire Emblem franchises has yielded one of the deepest and most engaging games the Warriors series has done to date.

    Fire Emblem Warriors delivers with enjoyable gameplay that blends mechanics from both Fire Emblem and Warriors games into something unique and unlike anything else on the Nintendo Switch.

    Hyrule Warriors may be one of my favourite games on the Wii U, and while I wasn’t as engaged in the characters and world of Fire Emblem Warriors, I loved every minute of the game both on N3DS and Switch. While the game is still fresh and will have several DLC and updates in the months to come, if you have any interest in a musou game, this is easily the best and smoothest on the Switch so far.
  4. Fire Emblem Warriors is more than just a Warriors game with Fire Emblem personalities in place of classic Chinese historical figures. It manages to retain a distinct Fire Emblem flavour despite dishing out a style of action that is arguably the polar opposite of what Fire Emblem fans expect.

    An attempt to blend Fire Emblem with Dynasty Warriors might seem an odd idea. Where’s the common ground between a tactical RPG and an over-the-top slasher, right? It actually worked out pretty well, as the game managed to retain Fire Emblem’s atmosphere. If you’re a fan of the series and not allergic to Dynasty Warriors’ formula, give it a try. [13/2017, p.36]

    Although it won't go down as an especially memorable title, there's a lot of fun to be had with Fire Emblem Warriors. The interesting usage of all the aspects from the tactical RPG series certainly added to some freshness to the standard Musou formula, and it was great to see a lot of the characters given the high-definition treatment and the interactions between them are sure to please a lot of fans.

    Fire Emblem has the potential to make a great partner, but this badly made and painfully simplistic crossover is as disappointingly dumb as all the other Dynasty Warriors games.

    This is my very first Koei Tecmo game, but I am a BIG fan of Fire Emblem and I must say, besides the roster of characters aren't big SuperThis is my very first Koei Tecmo game, but I am a BIG fan of Fire Emblem and I must say, besides the roster of characters aren't big Super Stars per say, the game is an absolute blast! The game plays smoothly and it's visually beautiful. The plot of the game isn't quite complex as a typical RPG, but the star of the game is its gameplay and the intricate addition of Fire Emblem elements to this strategical Hack & Slash RPG. I hear that the Postgame content provides great future challenges which add to its replayability so that's a super plus for me! It may not be a game for everyone, nor is it perfect, but the elements that it excels at so far definitely has opened my eyes to what Koei Tecmo is capable of with other Nintendo-inspired spin-offs Expand

    Fire Emblem Warriors is basically a re-skin of Dynasty Warriors. The game is mainly focused on Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon, Fire EmblemFire Emblem Warriors is basically a re-skin of Dynasty Warriors. The game is mainly focused on Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon, Fire Emblem Awakening, and Fire Emblem fates. You could also choose 20 more characters to play with different attacks and skills and customize their skills and weapons. The game is extremely repetitive and somehow satisfying to watch and se your enemies get caught by your critical strike. Expand

    Una gran entrega del género Musou para los fans de los combates innecesariamente espectaculares. Si bien no es un Fire Emblem tradicional,Una gran entrega del género Musou para los fans de los combates innecesariamente espectaculares. Si bien no es un Fire Emblem tradicional, toma varios elementos como el triangulo de armas y una parte de estrategia para sacar adelante un buen título. Si están esperando un táctics por turnos, huyan lejos de este título.

    Lo Bueno:

    - Una enorme variedad de personajes jugables.
    - Una forma distinta de jugar con los íconos de Fire Emblem.

    Lo Malo:

    - Es necesario farmear mucho para mejorar a un grupo reducido de personajes.

    The graphics are good but not stunning. I found the story to be bad and was totally not interested what would come next ,but through the entire game i was just having fun slashing the living **** out of my enemies
    Multiple characters can be controlled alternatively which is a good design choice

    Overall the game is fun ,it has great graphics but really nothing more
