I'm not sure I dig it. I like me some Fire Emblem and I expected this wouldn't be as deep as regular Fire Emblem, but it hasn't really been able to grab my attention at all. I'm looking at that Stamina meter thinking: 'I can't imagine a time where that thing would even be half empty. After three missions I am kind of done and 10 minutes later I'm at full Stamina again'. I'm also not sure what the purpose is of trying to get more 'anime kids' as Polygon called them. I have four good ones that work well together and haven't needed any others since. When they die, they don't die permanently, so it's more of a collection thing rather than needing them it seems like.
It has made me want to play Fates again though. I'm reminded Fire Emblem is fun. I'm just not so sure about this game. The 'loop' hasn't caught me at all. After 2-3 missions I have no desire to play it again until a few hours later. Couple days later, I feel like I'm not working towards anything really either.
Maybe it'll come later. What do you think of it?
