Product Description

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance was developed by Intelligent Systems for the Nintendo GameCube, and it had a release date of October 17th, 2005. It was the first Fire Emblem game on the system. Like previous Fire Emblem games, the objective of Path of Radiance is to command a team of warriors through a series of engagements. Each engagement represents a unique tactical challenge as well as an opportunity for the characters to level up and grow into new skills and abilities. With turn-based combat and a clever combo system, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance offers a unique and long-lasting challenge for any GameCube owner.As with other Fire Emblem games, Path of Radiance focuses on turn-based combat within a map grid.

Portions of the grid present obstacles, height advantages or disadvantages, and other tactical challenges for the individual units to overcome. Players must carefully position their units and use their powers to overwhelm opponents and exploit their weaknesses. The weapon for each character uses a "Triangle" advantage system with each of the three weapons having both a strength and a weakness to exploit. Magic is similar with three options to choose from. Each unit will be more proficient in the use of certain weapons and skills and have unique abilities to unlock as they level up. In total, there are 19 characters that can be unlocked over the course of the game plus the primary player character.

Each unit also has a class that helps summarize how it should best be tactically employed. Any unit that is killed in a level will remain dead for the rest of the game, which presents an exciting tactical challenge for players.The plot of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance revolves around a mercenary named Greil and his first recruit, Ike. It is divided into chapters with each chapter containing a series of engagements to be fought and won before continuing. The first chapter concerns the main characters allying themselves with the Princess Elincia. The second chapter concerns Greil and Ike resisting the Daein invasion while also working to ease racial tensions between the Beorc and Laguz attempting to gain them as allies. The third chapter onward is focused more on the fighting of the actual war, and it is revealed that a man known as Ashnard is provoking the fight to bring about an ancient prophecy that he hopes will enable him to conquer the entire world. Over the course of the story, the hero must choose to send his friends, including Ike, into battle and make hard life-or-death choices.Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance is a unique Nintendo GameCube game. It presents a powerful narrative combined with challenging gameplay. Like many GameCube games, it is also playable on the Nintendo Wii. It offers tactical and strategic options and challenges unlike those found in any other game. As such, it is a must-have for any serious strategy gamer looking for a game with a story every bit as impressive as its gameplay.
