A decent Fire Emblem hack

Reviewed By: Recca on 30 Nov 2019

While not quite on par with some of the other well known Fire Emblem hacks such as The Last Promise, Order of the Crimson Arm or The Road to Ruin, this hack still has a lot to offer fans of the series. The storyline is interesting, but the dialogue can be a bit bland at times. However, the custom edited sprites and newly added music makes up for this shortcoming. There is a split path during about the half way point of the game which certainly gives it some replay value. The characters are also decently well made. While not the best, they are certainly acceptable.

There are a few randomly occurring graphical glitches that occur from time to time as well as an occasional status screen bug that displays false high stats. However, neither of these small bugs are game breaking as both can be easily fixed by opening a different screen anywhere in the game (such as a status/item/menu screen) and exiting it to remedy said issues.

Overall, this hack is fairly well made and interesting as it uses Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (8th game in the series) as its base instead of Fire Emblem (7th game in the series) as most Fire Emblem fan hacks tend to. This allows for a few extra nice features such as two selectable classes during unit promotion, more units/sprites in general and the supply feature right from the start of the game. The main character is also a light magic user which is quite original for a series that is mostly known as having melee fighters as lords. I would recommend this hack to any Fire Emblem fan that is looking for a decent hack to play with some fresh new twists to it. And for those seeking a challenge, there is a hard mode patch offered as well as “zero growths” for both the regular normal and hard mode patches (meaning that characters will not gain stats during regular level ups, but must instead rely on using newer units and stat increasing items).
