    First some notes:

    Note two: IT IS MY REVIEW SO NO I MADE IT NOT HE THINGS. Ask me if you want to publish it.

    Note Three: this review is GAMEPLAY only!

    Note four: I will update it as much as possible!(like grammar story)

    Note five: Adding video now.
    ________________________________________________________________________________

    Well I saw this game on the release list on gabtemp.net and I thought lets give it try so I did download it first to try it out. A friend of mine took the real version out of Japan to Holland and I really love this game!

    Lol whut, but wtf is Fire Emblem?

    Fire Emblem is a strategy game series made by Intelligent systems.(part of Nintendo) It was first un-released in the usa and Europe. But in 2002 Fire Emblem came to us!(I mean it was Japan only) This is the second Fire Emblem for the Nintendo DS, the first one was Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon. Of course there is a release for the wii: Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn This game is very good and contains much chapters and is hard(and maybe even easy) enough to have hours of gameplay. But now back to Shin Monsh? no Nazo Hikari to Kage no Eiy?.

    Gameplay and some other things.

    I did start the game and well I started a new game. I did not understand what was happening but while this did happen I did create a new character! A mercenary called Player.(or something like that) And the prologue did start. I was impressed! The graphics and the music were FAR more better! But still ALL those Japanese text did irritate me slightly. It plays very smoothly and you can choose between touch and button control. I prefer buttons but that’s me. Further is using your brain to win the chapter.(yes your brain) The game contains about 30 chapters if I am right and 10 of them are side- and prologue chapters. The final boss is some lovely guy that is really hard to defeat. But I did play it for 10 hours and since then I tried other things. And there is something else I nearly forgot to mention! There are 5 extra episodes in the extra mode! You can play with princess Nina!(If I am right) So 10 hours of gameplay!? Not bad! But now about the music: IT IS BEAUTIFUL! I have no words for it.

    The Multiplayer options.

    Not tried yet but my firend says its great(same as FE Shadow Dragon)

    The Story:

    We will need to wait till a translation or the English release.

    First impressions:

    Maps, characters art: 8.5
    How long do I last with it: 7
    Controls: 9
    Sound: 10
    Multiplayer options: 7
    Story: UNKNOWN

    overall: 8.3

    Conclusion:

    It is a very nice game! We shall see how it is on the English release! I hope it will have a good story!

    If you left the default name, it's actually "Chris." You probably changed it to say "Player" though.

    Nice, but short review. I understand because there's not much else to say about a game in Japanese (unless you know Japanese of course).

    Trust him guys, I have the ROM as well as the original game (the one on the Super Famicom), and so far it's better.


    Lunatic (3*) mode is EXTREMELY hard for those looking for a challenge. For those who have tried, it's hard to even get passed the PROLOGUE chapters. Myself included (I'm stuck at Prologue chapter 4, lol). The other modes, however (besides 2* "Mania" mode) are piss easy for those who are new to the series and genre in general.

    Just to clarify, in the video posted he used the very basic translation patch done within a few days of the release by me (and because one can't use English letters, I used "Player" because this is a neutral name and while "Chris" is the default name a lot of people might not like choosing between "Chris", a christian name, or Japanese). There is currently a full translation patch done by me and a team of much more awesome people than me that you can google if interested. Just thought it was kind of relevant to the review.
