For starters, binding blade's gives you tons of units whom you are either going to use or won't use at all and in this game's case it is the latter. In a tactical rpg, you want to use units whom you can consistently rely on throughout the entire game. Unlike most of the games, fe6 tends to do the opposite only because it's challenge is partly on that aspect. Then there is the unit balance in itself...we all know that fe has a concept called HIT and every unit has the chance to HIT the opponent while the enemy has the chance to HIT the unit. HITTING is a needed mechanic because in order to win, you need to reliably HIT stuff. Where am I getting in this? Half the units you get can't hit reliably and this is the main reason why I end up using Rutger because not only is his skill high, I can trust him to HIT stuff because he will often HIT the enemy. Sure later on you get better units that HIT but till then, you are not going to beat Henning without him. Then those maps....they are long and only very few units have high move to finish most of them in few hours. None of them take minutes to complete except the first few chapters. As soon as chapter 7 starts, they start to get longer. This would be fine but then the other problem is enemies get stronger than you and they make it very hard for you to make any kind of progress because again unit balance... This isn't challenging and it's just testing your patience in the long run. What I am saying is that fe6 challenge is messed up because if game design flaws. If you compare Conquest, it's a challenging game that is pretty well balanced because every unit is balanced and weapons are also balanced despite the annoying debuffs. Is there a reason you're putting hit in all caps almost every time you say it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
