By Honey badgers to the max
The graphics of the characters are great. You don’t have constant ads. You can actually play for hours without running out of stamina, and you can actually get good characters. It’s my new favorite game.
Minor bug becoming a major problem 3/5
Every time I close the app, the entire game redownloads. As someone who doesn’t have unlimited fast wifi at my disposal, this is a major issue. Every time I so much as leave the app on standby for too long, I have to wait half an hour or longer before I can play again. However this is only an issue on my iPhone 6 (iOS 11) and not on my iPad. (also iOS 11) Other than that the game is awesome, and the weapon refinery is nice and I use it frequently, with quite a few plans for my units using its features!
Simply not impressed anymore 1/5
Well, book II finally came out and new characters are constantly being added in every time with new and amazing abilities. But there is just something that's honestly missing. The game for me has just honestly become extremely stale and boring these days. It's not only that many have reached end game and completed all of the content, it's honestly the meta that kills the game. And it's just honestly not fun anymore as it used to be. There is nothing exciting to look forward to. It was a good run. But to new players, you're going to end up feeling the same way as many people, completely bored.
Amazing Game for Mobile 5/5
A big fan of the portable versions of the series and this one does a great job of showing off all the old characters in the series and giving the new characters more time with people
Can't stop playing! 5/5
I've had this game ever since it was first released and I can't stop playing it! It's very similar to the original Fire Emblem games and has a variety of fan favorite heroes to battle with. I've beaten it on easy mode and I'm moving along through the game on hard mode, so there's still more to do after beating it.
One big problem: whenever I open the game, it constantly tells me to update and keeps downloading for 10 minutes. Any ways we can fix that?
Rip off 1/5
This game is without question pay to win. The use sleazy techniques to get u to spend as much money as possible. They are pretend to be transparent with odds, but it’s misdirection. They don’t tell u the odds of getting a specific IV or the odds of getting an orb of the color u want. Avoid this game.
Amazing Game 5/5
By Elijah Elam
I love the series and learning about the other characters from different games. My only wish is that Owain was in. I started with fates and I say this is a great mobile app for that I can’t see be done in any better way.
Good stuff 5/5
I like the game, I also like the Fire Emblem series of games.
Really fun game but.. 3/5
I have saved up orbs from playing this game so many times to unlock heroes(which is the fun part right) and so many times I've unlocked the same dull and useless heroes. If I see Stahl again I'll scream. Anyway the hero acquiring system is garbage, you spend SO much hard currency for no pay off. I would NEVER spend money on orbs on this game because they're so overpriced and I have bought before on Miitomo and Pocket Camp.
I really tried to play this game but it is WAY too discouraging to continually watch my orbs go down the toilet and to have no reliable way to acquire actually good heroes. So yeah.
The mechanics of the game though? Super fun!
Crashes at 92% 1/5
Ever since the last update I can't load the game. Every time I try it always crashes when it says it's at 92% complete! It's frustrating and annoying. PLEASE FIX IT!!!
Bug in latest update makes it impossible to play 1/5
Ever since the latest update, after I exit the game, it keeps forcing me to download the same 789 mb update which takes too long and makes it impossible to keep playing the game regularly. Please fix so I can play again!
Best game for me but.... 5/5
This is by far the best game I have ever played in years and since the characters are from older games, this brings back so many memories of them. I love the details of the places, designs of costumes, weapons and the items you get. I love how the characters are all unique and different from each other. The only problems are still the risk of wasting your orbs for characters you didn’t want, exiting the game and have to restart and download all over again which is a waste of time and the bugs. I also want to see cutscenes or talking and interacting with your Heros and choosing what you want to say maybe in like a lobby or place or something. That would be VERY awesome and cute!
I love everything BUT Boons/Banes 4/5
The game feels like it fits right in with the FE series and I love the diversity of characters. Although I find boons/banes a little frustrating. I don’t think they should be removed at all, I just want a way to change them. Getting one of your favorite characters and then it becoming unusable for the arena or lunatic maps because of a bad bane is just downright sucky. So, I say you make it so we can use hero feathers to change them, or even just make them neutral. Anyways, thanx.
Pretty amazing 5/5
I feel like the people working in it appreciate the game and me as a player. A game like this, league of legends, and tera I have no problem putting in $10 from time to time because it’s fun and in depth without needing me to commit early.
Nice for F2P 5/5
The game is very f2p friendly. While there are microtransactions they never feel necessary. The game is good for spending time, it requires strategy, and is fun.
Great game! 5/5
You don't even need to ha a Nintendo lover to enjoy this one! You can tell the devs care for the community and they are constantly adding new things. Totally get this one!
This and Miitomo won’t even start up. Literally unplayable!
Finally got Lyn, I'm complete now
It’s a good game, but it could be better... 4/5
It’s amazing to see all of these amazing characters in one game, but getting the characters that you like is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. And all the characters you do get are really plain... But over all it’s still a pretty good app.
Same as animal crossing 3/5
I love this game but it seriously needs to stop forcing me to update the same thing over and over and over again. Why can’t it just keep itself updated instead of me downloading 7 to 800 mb every time I want to play it
It’s good for a few quick matches on the go, but nowhere near as good, as the 3ds/Switch/GameCube/GBA/DS/Wii etc... Fire Emblem games.
I’m not sure if I’m the only one by everything on time I open the app it keeps asking me to update the game
Awesome gameplay 4/5
Gameplay overall is great, and I’ve played previous FE titles. Understandingly that this is a watered down version optimized for mobile devices. Yea it’s a gotcha game with pity percentage rates and it may sometimes point towards in-app purchases but that’s the majority of most popular mobile games. The only thing I would want improved in future updates is maybe the overall storyline and perhaps weapon refinery support for more weapons? I couldn’t hope (Though I wish lol, so I can test my units on my friend’s) for local real time pvp with friends as that would take away from a rewarding community where everyone is not entirely focused on trying to beat each other but to grow together as summoners. I personally think unit IVs are great, players might be down about getting a good five-star with bad IVs but in reality, that makes it so everyone with the same unit isn’t entirely the same in stats. Because if that was the case, every unit would be predictable.
Game is addicting 5/5
By Tarraria :D
Gameplay can get repetitive after awhile but the game ever fails to bring me back to spend more time in it.
Super awesome game but... 5/5
By Galing ah
Why does it have to have a huge download even for beginners that maybe because it has a LOT of hero’s.
By Red trainer
Horrible pulls same pulls I get from the launch of the game why do I even waste money on this I hate games like this
Can’t play version 2 1/5
I tried to play the latest version but the game loads then crash out. If I can give 0 star, I would for the game the I can’t play
Annoying downloading 5/5
By yo yo boo boo
It’s a very fun game and I rather enjoy it but I keep needing to download the same update over and over how can I fix this??
Optimize This Game for iPhone X 3/5
By Nestor H.
It's really a good game and I already Enjoy Super Mario Run in its full iPhone X Glory so might as well bring it to my other favorite Nintendo Franchise,Fire Emblem Heroes as well in its Full iPhone X Glory instead of that small screen which bugs me a little bit
Too many bugs with the new update 3/5
Why do I have to redownload the entire game file every time I open the app. Also when clicking skills it just flickers for half a second. Please fix.
Fun game but 780M patches 4 times a day is annoying 4/5
The game is pretty fun and the developers keep adding new ways to enjoy. The random player aspect makes it a bit of a reward when you finally get a 5 star character.
It’s a bit annoying when you want to play a quick game only to have to download a 780M patch. Be okay if it were a once a month kind of thing but 4-5 times a day is a bit excessive.
I just love it 5/5
It's one of the only mobile games I play. It's a perfect love letter to Fire Emblem. As recent fan of the entire Fire Emblem series, this game is fun and true to the formula I have come to love. I only wish I could get certain characters to coincide with my playthroughs of Sacred Stones (Lute) and Revelations (Soleil). Overall, I am having fun and a life long fan.
Great Game 5/5
It’s a great game overall. But I wish you can earn more orbs. Other than that the combat is cool and the gameplay but wish we can see our characters face
Okay time waster, terrible game. 1/5
The fact that this game is so highly rated is frankly sickening to me. It's a horrible game that begs for money at every given chance. Oh sure, in the beginning you might not see it that way. You'll probably even find it good and fun. But then the orbs start to stagnant. You become virtually reliant on daily gifts just to get by; to have a CHANCE at summoning unique and powerful units. And how are you repaid? A wave of relentless, overflowing, and virtually useless 3 stars. Oh but then! A miracle happens! You are gifted the wondrous 5 star Focus unit you've been praying for! And it's completely worthless because it has the worst possible nature. Did I mention? For some ungodly reason, this game tacks on a discount Pokémon IV system. I guess to TRY and add depth or complexity to the game, but all it really does is needlessly jack up the RNG aspect to 12. Gotta get that money for orbs somehow, right? So you essentially have two options: Blow an outrageous amount of money to get all the orbs you could ever want, or continually suffering in this Gacha nightmare. Stay away.
Optimize for iPhone X display 1/5
Review title says it all.
Good game 5/5
It’s really gr8
I can’t play fire emblem because it says update then I click it and my phone is telling me there is no update so fix y’all crap please and thank you plz fix it
please don't play this game 1/5
glorified gamblng with over simplified braindead gameplay designed to addict you into dropping loads of cash
By The KMS
This game after a while just starts pissing you off
Could be better, but overall great 4/5
I like this game a lot. However, it isn’t perfect. There are several changes I would like to see. I would love it if Orbs were much more easily obtainable. You pretty much have to be a whale to get Orbs easily. Also, they should add a trading system, where you can trade one Hero to another player for one of their Heroes if the same star rating. This would help many people get Heroes they have always wanted, frustration-free. Finally, I think there should be a way to change your Heroes’ IVs. It’s really unfortunate to get a 5* unit you’ve always wanted, but to later find out they they have lower Attack than usual. There should be some kind of way to alleviate this. If changing IVs seems too broken, you could always just give the option to make the IVs neutral.
Gotta figure out the fundamentals 3/5
Need to download 750+ MB updates multiple times per week for the last couple of weeks. Unacceptable to force these constantly. 1/week maybe ok - but better deltas are needed.
Game rollouts have generally been good to this point. Back to 5-star when this stops.
It’s really good but... 4/5
Whenever I open the app it says that I have a 789.9 file that has been already downloaded many times. It’s really good, but that little thing kills it every time
Fun and Addictive for competitive character hoarders 4/5
By Gii is ma name
The title says it all. As a phone app gamer who lives for buying every type of item or character in the games and then using them to my advantage in gameplay, it’s been really fun finding my favorite heroes and then turning them into high leveled powerhouses, and then finding high ranked heroes and pushing their low level skills on battles harder than their abilities. Also good art and diversely made characters are always a plus ;)
I just recently bought this game so I can't say for sure how good the game is. I'm getting a ton of bugs that don't allow me to play the game by taking me out of the app. I'm not sure if the reason lies in the game itself or the device I'm using which is an iPod, I'm writing this just to put it out there. I will say it's fun.
Some bug issues 4/5
Im not sure if this is just me, but since the new update the game is boarder line frustrating to play.
The first issue isn’t that major, but during battles if I try to tap on a units skill to see the description, it flashes up for a second then disappears. Again, more so just kind as annoying as opposed to anything else.
The second problem is the more important one. Every single time I go off the app for any reason, for any amount of time (even in times when I accidentally click the home button) and then try to renter the game, not only do I have to redownload the game again, but it deletes everything I was doing when I exited. Before it would offer to put you back into your bookmark to pick up where you left off, now the only option is to delete it. This is especially bad for arena, since it kills your streaks and then you have to waste resources to get it back.
Last one, it has to deal with Arya. When I’m in arena, she’ll trigger desperation at full health, which shouldn’t happen, and even when I check her other skills there’s nothing that would allow for that. Very annoying especially when that kills your streak too.
Other than that, I love all the new things the update has done! Keep up the good work, but fix the bugs.
Great but there’s a problem 5/5
By Darth Righty
Each time I open the app it has me redownload the data but I still love the game!
Decent F2P 4/5
Updated Dec 2017: the constant updates ensure there always something to do, I’ve enjoyed many hours on this game. I think the amount of available free orbs is pretty decent, though I suppose it’s by design that I’m always short when a cool, new, powerful banner comes out.
If you’re tempted to purchase orbs, you should know I’ve immediately regretted purchasing orbs both times I did it: the cost per orb is obscenely high for how little each orb will get you.
Both times I’ve spent money I figured it was time to show support for the game during a banner I really wanted and all my purchases netted me was a bunch of fodder characters. $20 can get you nothing, so unless you plan on shelling out hundreds or thousands, expect to make do with the orbs you earn by completing quests and being picky with your banners.
Original: I only played a few of the fire emblem games before, but this is kinda fun. Plus they gave me Camilla on my first summon (.Y.) OP
I love this game! Highly recommended!!! 5/5
By Poldi Chen
Perfect game can't praise it more! Since I knew Celica would be added to the August Tempest Trails banner, I have saved 85 orbs for the only red balls. Fortunately I got my princess. What's more, on the next day I successfully summoned Swimsuit Corrin by my first try. As a non-paider player I deeply feel satisfied and grateful. Its appearance rate is real and seems like bigger than it says. Thanks Nintendo so much. Hope continue to give us a more wonderful game.
I got Amelia with 8 orbs. Thanks!
I got young Tiki with my free summon. I am so lucky!
Couldn't show more gratitude to Nintendo. In the new updated version, everyone can get one of four Brave heroes for free! I chose Lyn. But I also want Ike. Please give me more luck.
Please grant me one of special heroes!
Got Male Corrin with free summon and got Fae and Jakob at 4.25% of special heroes banner. Still thanks sincerely. What if a special hero came home! Please!
Finally I got Black Azura!!! I am so satisfied! Thank you!
In the banner of World of Holy War, I summoned Sigurd and Deirdre with 4 orbs! I am blessed!!! Thanks!!!
Shigure at 4.0% yesterday and Hinoka with free summon today! Thanks! 10.24
In the Halloween banner, I summoned flying Nowi with little orbs and Herry as well. But which I like most is Kitty Sakura. Hope I have luck to get her. Or I will save orbs for Christmas banner at next month. May Nintendo pass me good luck!!
Kitty Sakura get! So much gratitude! And few days before CYL Lucina came to me. As a non-payer I do feel myself a luck dog. 🙏
At the 8% rates of banner, I spent more than 120 orbs with only one repeated Deirdre home. So much disappointed. Wish I summoned Spring Camila or Hector before the banner end.🙏🙏🙏
Yesterday I made a wish to get Spring Camila or Hector in legendary banner, nevertheless I realize my dream today! Hector has come home! Although I have no more orbs striving for Spring Camila, I already learned to be satisfied. Thanks Nintendo!! ありがとうございます！
Okay we have banners with sweet heroes,cool. We have no orbs.
Fire Emblem Heroes Review by Night Witch - YouTube 5/5
By Prometheus The Clash Royaler
I really enjoy playing this game! I started playing it around it’s 6 month Anniversary. I really like playing it, but there are some flaws. I don’t really know for this one is just my constant bad luck or not, but the Summoning event with the 3, 4, and 5 star thing. According to the chances or getting a 3 Star Hero is 33.82%, 4 Star Hero is 57.68%, and 5 Star Focus is 8.50%. With these odds I should be getting a lot of 4 Stars, but I instead get more 3 Star Hero’s instead. I also would like to recommended changing the battle screen when you go into battle. I’m not saying I want it, but I think that it would build more drama with 3D battle instead of 2D.
