Comments on: Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn /2008/02/08/fire-emblem-radiant-dawn/ Spotlight's Game Reviews Thu, 16 Oct 2008 06:52:21 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.6.2 By: Matt Triponey /2008/02/08/fire-emblem-radiant-dawn/#comment-1188 Matt Triponey Tue, 12 Aug 2008 17:10:25 +0000 /2008/02/08/fire-emblem-radiant-dawn/#comment-1188 This game is not remotely short. Trust me, you'll get between thirty and forty hours out of this one. It has, I believe, 44 chapters overall. Some of them can take upwards of an hour to plow through, though others are shorter. And that's excluding all the stuff you'll have to do in the base menu, and the sometimes lengthy plot advancement sequences. There's plenty of material to keep you occupied here. I bought it on November 6 and beat it a few weeks prior to Christmas. But I don't play games as often as a lot of people. This game is not remotely short.

But according to this review, it seems like a short game. Plz correct if wrong. I haven’t bought this game but I plan to. But according to this review, it seems like a short game.

And the outfits are almost always modest. I guess a few female mages show a bit of leg, but it’s so unnoticeable that it completely slipped my mind when I wrote this. And I never saw a single character whom I would describe as “well-proportioned.” This isn’t a particularly sexual game." What I meant by the wolf thing is that in one coversation, one character (Gatrie) flirts with another. Another character points out that "he (Gatrie) would hit on a tree if he dressed it in a skirt." As to the well-proportioned bit, I was mostly refering to the character Lucia if you've seen her, which I'm sure you have. I do agree that it was a particularly sexual game, but it did surprise me that none of this was noted in the review. The worst part is the flirting bit. Other than that, I agree with the reviewer. “As to sexuality, I don’t fully understand the wolf thing. And the outfits are almost always modest.

Basically, if it involves support of real-world religions or deliberate degradation of Jesus Christ, I will not tolerate it. However, if it's a made-up religion such as in this game, I see it as only fantasy. The game's creators didn't intend to make a statement, just to tell a good story. Some people might think that this sort of fantasy is wrong because it tells God we don't want him around. If you believe that, it's fine with me, but if that's the case, I'd better stop reading Redwall because Brian Jacques clearly doesn't want people around. It's just fantasy, and I have no problems with a mature enjoying this. As to sexuality, I don't fully understand the wolf thing. And the outfits are almost always modest.

I figured any gamer, other than me, wouldn't even give this game a star at all. Proved me wrong. I see it as pure fantasy, so I didn't have a problem with the whole gods thing. I was surprised that there was nothing under sexual content since one character is a bit of a wolf and a few girls are either well proportioned or show off a little leg. The review is accurate.

As the reviewer said, the presence of gods in this game is the only objectable element. This is easy to look past, though, if you are older and strong in your faith.
