Fire Emblem Warriors
5 out of 5
First of all, I haven't really played any Fire Emblem games so the universe is pretty much new to me. Meaning, I had no particular feelings regarding any characters prior to this game. So I really just went into it for what it is, a musou game.
It's a great fast paced hack and slash/musou/action game. There are a lot of characters, that you have to unlock, with enough difference in gameplay to make most of them interesting and most likely enough for everyone to enjoy. There are a ton of missions to do once you beat the campaign and a ton of stuff to farm to upgrade your characters. All of this makes up for a super addictive game and this despite a fairly simple gameplay overall.
It can be a serious time sink if you're trying to 100% the game. There's just too much farming to do. I have no recollection of the story honestly so it most likely wasn't anything to write about. The DLCs felt a bit like a cash grab (some additional characters were just reskin, same moveset as older characters already in game) but if you want more it is kind of a must buy (so yeah I bought it...). Managing your inventory turned into a chore later in the game when you're hunting for specific stats.
In the end, I can't say it is a perfect game by any means. Yet I had tons of fun with it, a lot more than I expected. It's a really engaging game that I had a hard time to put down. But after so many hours I kind of feel burned and even a bit bored so time to put the game to rest. I got a lot of other games to play too so it's for the best. But I can easily recommend FE Warriors to anyone who likes musou game! I sure had a blast with it.
