Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Just completed Birthright for Fire emblem. Conquest???

little late this time around to jumping on fire emblem (big fan). Gotta say...it's not bad, but not my favorite. 

Pros:

- Better story and plot

- "my castle" customizing and battles were cool

- visually nice

 

Cons:

-Just didn't offer as much as awakening 

-though a better story, feels to short even with prologes.

- characters not as interesting as past 

I have the special edition which has all 3 perspectives (birthright, conquest, revelations). is it worth playing 2 more times for the other differences?

From what I've heard conquest is way better than birthright so you should go for it.

It's not really the same game, so "playing through it two more times" isn't super accurate, imo. The stories differ enough and warrent a playthrough. I do think Conquest is better than Birthright; however, I think Revalations is the best one.

Conquest is indeed way better than birthright.

Besides the first 6 chapters leading up to the decision, Conquest goes through an entirely different route than Birthright and it's quite the challenge too.
Birthright is geared more towards beginners and recently new fans of the series that got onboard with Awakening.
Conquest is geared more towards the expert, long time Fire Emblem fans. It's hard, so be prepared.

Conquest is undoubtedly the better experience in terms of challenge.  Personally, I felt the presentation, characters, maps and story are also much better.  

There's little clues everywhere that show they made Conquest first, Revelations second and Baby's First Fire Emblem Birthright last.  Production qualities seem to be in that order.

spot on, birthright certainly feels like a "welcome to fire emblem" game. Ok, good to know, i'll get started on conquest. 



Conquest is definitely better than Birthright and so far, I'm liking Revelations more than Birthright as well

I would say go for it, but if you didn't really like the gameplay, then maybe not..

Conquest has more complex gameplay and map design, but the story is much worse than Birthright's.
