When Ike finally joins his father's group of mercenaries, Daein suddenly invades Crimea. Getting caught off guard, Crimea loses quickly. Ike's father, Greil, has no choice but to lead the group of mercenaries out of Crimea into the neighboring nation, Gallia. The mercenaries decide they must rebel the attack, and gain back Crimea. However, there is hard racial tensions going on between the Beroc (humans) and Laguz (humans who can transform into animals), and the Daein army is hunting the mercenaries down. Will the mercenaries prevail and stop Daein's march? Or will they lose, and Daein's terror spread? Written by chrisfoss@rogers.com

Did You Know?


Due to the Fire Emblem Path of Radiance Gamecube game being produced in limited copies, this makes it one of the most expensive Gamecube game ever due to it being a rare hard to find item. See more »


In Chapter 25, after the battle is won, the scene with Ike and his group hiking the mountain clearly shows Ike on screen wearing his old Ranger costume even though he's been promoted to Lord class after Chapter 17, while in the text dialog box, it shows Ike's profile picture wearing his Lord costume.

Ike: [At the Serenes Forest, Ike and Mist witness Reyson and Leanne praying at the altar and they're singing, Ike then looks at Mist] Don't I know, Mist, isn't that mothers song?
Mist: Not quite, but it... it is close. Ike look! Up there!
[Mist points up and the magic spell is cast over Serenes Forest and the trees comes back to life in green again and the sun rises]
Mist: It's incredible.
[Mist spins around and runs]
Ike: The heart of the forest is returned.
[Reyson and Leanne still pray at the altar]

This is the most rare expensive best Fire Emblem game ever
9 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember back in the mid 2000s when I borrowed this game from my best friend and I played it on my Gamecube and I won it. But since then I've forgot to buy it and the prices online climbed very high in the Internet marketplace.

You play as Ike with CGI cutscenes and 3D battle graphics. Ike and his father Greil forms an army and they set out to Black Knight and Ashnard while Ikes father Greil gets killed and Ike has to avenge him by setting out to kill the Black Knight and later to kill Ashnard the evil tyrant and overthrow him from the kingdom Crimea.

The game play is still the same as in Fire Emblem 2003 and Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones 2004 and is similar to Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. You still fight with swords, axes, spears, bow and arrows, magic spells. You also get a level up for every 100 exp and you can promote your level 10-20 character using a crest item. But a new feature is being able to play as Laguz the people who transform into beasts and bird creatures. You can still lose your characters if they run out of HPs and if Ike gets killed, then it's game over.

Like I said this is the rarest most expensive Fire Emblem Gamecube game ever. If you're willing to pay over hundreds of dollars for a used or New copy, consider yourself lucky and better hope the Gamecube mini disc works perfectly because this game is hard to come by even in the Internet marketplace.

I only hope that the Nintendo company will either reissue Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance on the Wii U or release it on the Gamecube Virtual Console.
