I've been playing Fire Emblem for the past few days on my NDS and am loving it. But I only just got to notice that the units you lose in battle are lost forever. No wonder I wasn't able to use Matthew, Florina and Kent. This sucks!
FE is great! Played all the way through both GBA-titles. I agree on losing the units forever is hard, especially when fighting in the arena. I remember that I trained all my guys up to lvl20 on the first arena you encounter, because on that map you were able to put your healer directly next to the fighter, and with the money I got from fighting I was able to buy new staffs. But when doing this with 5 guys in a row, and the 5th one dies with lvl19, it gets quite depressing. ^^
What do you think of the DS-Version? I have to say beeing able to change classes at any time somehow takes the spice of it...
Yeah, that's why I hate Fire Emblem. I always end up stalling, just like I do in in every strategy game. I stop playing at every move, sit there for half an hour then make a move, my pegasi archer dies because she's a moron and then I turn it off.
