Reviewers Are Dumb.

It was for the Wii. If it were a PS360 game (With graphics to meet the console expectations) it would be sitting on a 85-90 Meta score.



End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

One thing I have seen is that any sub-genre that requires more strategy than the genre it is a part of tends to see all of their games getting (noticeably) lower reviews. One of my theories for this is that reviewers have been lead to believe that they're great gamers due to the simplicity of most games (and have fully accepted the Cinematic reward system) and when they're faced with a game that challenges them they (tend to) throw a tantrum and claim that the game was too hard, or that it wasn't balanced, rather than accept that they aren't as good of gamers as they thought.

Interesting theory.

stop talking like a fanboy, honestly that game deserved what it get. Even though I would rate it anywhere from 6-7 but its definitely not a 8 material. Shit believe it or not I felt even War Song that old game from genesis day is better than this. The difficulty level is noting amazing, once you get used to the dumb AI everything will become more of the same strategy fighting patterns. This is basically the same kind of games that I played the past 20 years offering nothing new at all but some improved graphic.

I was surprised at the size of some battles.  They were great... except for the enemy's turn.  I hated waiting for the enemy to slowly move every single unit...

Once you beat the game you can turn off the battle animations on the map. But even without that, the AI makes their turn usually pretty quickly in the FE games. Just compare that to a game like FFTA.

The game is hard, at least compared to the previous two games (Sacred Stones and Path of Radiance). Overall in the Fire Emblem series the difficulty of Radiant Dawn is about average.

Sorry, I prefer to compare Fire Emblem games to other good games.

Radiant Dawn didn't feel any more or less difficult to me than Blazing Sword (later chapters anyway), Sacred Stones, or Sword of Seals.  If anything, the ability to battle save should have made it easier.

Are you seriously calling FFTA a bad game? Can't disagree with that.

On the easy and normal difficulty settings, the Fire Emblem games aren't that hard, so much is true. But if you compare them on the highest difficulty level they offer (which I meant in my previous post), then Radiant Dawn is definitely among the harder games of the series that have been released in this decade. The new battle save feature is disabled on that setting.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yes, I know as much about it being disabled.  Believe me, I know.  -_-

I can agree that Radiant Dawn's highest difficulty is tougher than that of the other games and by "tougher" I mean that I can't simply charge into a battle and win without losing someone.

I wouldn't call a 79 overall rating mixed. I'd say that's pretty good, especially considering what type of game it is. Most of the review sources worth considering gave it favorable reviews.
