Fight the power! That is the mantra of the Dawn Brigade as they battle to free their homeland from the tyranny of an evil empire in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, the latest in the long-running Fire Emblem strategy-RPG series. Three years have passed since the last Fire Emblem adventure, when the kingdom of Daein invaded neighbouring Crimea and sparked a war that nearly consumed the continent of Tellius. Crimea held off the invasion, crowned the late king's daughter as their queen and rebuilt their beleaguered nation. However, Daein came under the tyrannical rule of the powerful Begnion Empire. Now, to break free from the grip of Begnion oppression, a handful of young revolutionaries - the Dawn Brigade - has banded together to save the lives of their countrymen. Like the other games in the Fire Emblem series, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn is a deep, tactical strategy game that boasts role-playing elements. Through strategic movements, effective items/weapons use and a little luck, players will need to defeat the opposing army on a map. Every time a unit of yours defeats an enemy unit, that unit receives experience points and becomes more powerful. Your army of rebels consists of dozens of unique characters, including knights, thieves, archers and warriors. These characters can rise to become legendary heroes, but if you're not careful, they could perish in battle, never to be heard from again. To command your troops, you can use the Wii Remote or Classic Controller. With the Wii Remote, you'll simply hold it sideways (in the NES configuration), using the Control Pad to move the on-screen cursor and the 1 and 2 Buttons to confirm actions. Holding the B Button, you can also change the angle of the battle map, giving you a chance to view the battlefield from all angles. see more...

This was one of the best fire emblem games that I have played. I really enjoyed this game as a sequel to the Path of Radiance. I simultaneously love and hate that when characters die in the game they are gone forever because it makes it more realistic but for people like me it makes it more difficult because I refuse to let characters die. The characters in this game were excellent and each had their own unique personality. I loved that you changed perspective between each of the parties - and that eventually you had to face off against the characters you already got attached to.

I love Fire Emblem and I really enjoyed Radiant Dawn. I love the change of perspective every so often through the game going back and forth between Micaiah's forces and Ike's forces.

Loved this release of fire emblem. Sothe and Micaiah are great characters and a lot of fun to play. The same game play is found in this game as in all past fire emblems. It is a tactics RPG and one of my favorite games. Game play is turn based and you flip back and forth between your turn and the enemies turn. You complete small tasks, try to route the enemy and build your character support while you play. The Laguz were a lot of fun to play and I hope to see them pop up in future Fire emblem releases. there's a lot of story line in the game and few great cut scene. If you are at all into tactics or rpg style games then pick this up!

One of the best. FE: Path of Radiance aside, this is one of the only 3D fire emblem games. So many hours of gameplay, can be difficult/challenging at times, and the story is divided into two parts which wraps up at the end. Again, I appreciate the race/social commentary in this game, a typical political corruption storyline wrapped up in this RPG strategy game! The only thing I'm not happy with is the inadequate support system compared to other games. :(
