A forgotten gem. The strategy and mechanics are compelling, and the maps are serviceable, despite what people say. But the real treasure here is the storytelling. It's a beautiful exploration of Gods and their effects on humanity. It never loses sight of its central dichotomy, perfectly encapsulated by its deuteragonists and their intersecting journeys. Fire Emblem Echoes is ambitious, intelligent, and lovingly detailed. It features the best presentation in the franchise, from the voice acting to the masterful character interactions. Play it. It's worth it.
