Awakening is 92 and it is the highest rated FE game. 

The Graphics/texture and frame rate issues should be the main issues of the game from what I've seen. 

Going by what I've read on some reviews, it has more to do with the combat being too easy and simple. It appears that easy and normal difficulties are so accesible that many people turn on automatic battles because it hardly makes a difference between that and playing by yourself. Apparently the triangle weapon system is gone, and with it, the combat has become kind of a joke on easy and normal difficulties. Hard is the way to go even if you suck at these games.

Yeah I heard many people recommending to do Hard and besides you can always lower it down. The removal of the traingle weapon will be interesting to see. 



Pocky Lover Boy!

I think Fates had the best map and scenario design of the series, but its story was pretty disappointing, the characters were not well-handled compared to previous games, and the children and extra-dimensional base just didn't mesh with the rest of the game at all. It was both a step forward and a step backward. Awakening may be considered simple by FE story standards, but the way the mechanics, themes, characters, and story came together in that game make it one of those few games where the story and gameplay perfectly compliment each other and enhance each other, and ensure that I keep coming back to it every year. These reviews make me feel that Three Houses might be able to recapture that magic touch that made Awakening so appealing.and have its various elements compliment each other again. We'll see tomorrow.

As an outsider who has 0 interest in the Fire Emblem series but has always had 0.2 interest in Awakening, I gotta say Three Houses has got me at least 0.1 interested since it's reveal. So, I guess.



For anyone who has played it long enough, what was the reason for removing the weapon triangle? Does something replace it?



I believe, haven't played it, it was replaced with weapon arts. Weapon arts are tied to weapon durability, which is suppose to add another layer of strategy. Of so I've read.

Color me surprised, i didn't think it would score so high.



I'm 5 hours in at the moment - undoubtedly my favourite Fire Emblem ever already. The characters are fantastic, the story progression is solid, the side activities and missions are great. Zero complaints at all so far.



Fantastic reviews, I'm really considering to get this as my first Fire Emblem, but before doing that I want to read impressions from fans of the series (Switch games are overpriced in my country so I have to be picky :P)



I'm really disappointed by what I'm reading about the romance options in Three Houses. Seems like a colossal step back in terms of romance. Fates was basically a character shipping simulator, you could pair any characters you wanted together and they would fall in love and have kids. However, it seems in Three Houses only the player character Byleth can romance others, and you only get a single romance scene that affects the epilogue; no kids, no shipping. They basically entirely cut my favorite thing about the series.

Odd, I was told by a VG expert that FE 3 Houses was lazy and uninspired.

"The saddest part about this is that two of those games have been received quite poorly by their fanbase and are seen as unambitious cash grabs"

Lol.

I wonder who would've said that.

By the way, a lot of the Fire Emblem fanbase hates Fates, and it had a similar critical reception.

Edit: and even more by the way, Pokémon Sword/Shield will get a 86 metascore. It doesn't change the fact that it's been received poorly by the fanbase and is an unambitious cash grab.

Sword and Shield won’t get a 86. The last Pokémon game got a 79. It’s been going downward in scores,
