It's not my favourite in the series but I did like Fates, and I would recommend it.

Go Conquest if you want a challenge, since Conquest is one of the most difficult in the series on the higher difficulties, and even puts up a challenge on normal mode. The plot is definitely not a high point, though, so don't expect much storywise.

Birthright is a lot easier, in fact one of the easiest in the series, even on the highest difficulty, and is more geared towards beginners of the series, with more simple maps and characters who can stomp entire maps (I'm looking at you Ryoma and Takumi). The plot was better than Conquest in my opinion, but you're not exactly looking at quality writing in any of the paths.

Revelations is the final path, and is DLC and it's recommended you play it last, as it contains spoilers for the other two main routes. It features the characters from both routes. Personally, Revelations was my least favourite of the three, as it's a huge mess gameplay-wise and story-wise. It also answers questions Birthright and Conquest don't answer. (I don't really agree with the practice of holding back plot points as DLC but whatever) so if you want them answered you have to play Revelations. Or you can just look it up of course.

So overall, if you're newer to the series, I recommend Birthright first, and if you liked it, you can download Conquest as DLC for half price. If you consider yourself more of a veteran, I recommend Conquest first. Revelations is alright but you can tell it was lazily put together.

Also not my favourite but I really did like Conquest, and on its own it's almost a consideration for my favourite Fire Emblem, though not quite.

It mainly excels in terms of gameplay (it's amazing), but the music (I imagine this is consistent across the whole package) is also excellent and I do quite enjoy most of the game's cast, despite it being relatively small playable-wise.

Having only beaten this version (on Hard Classic), I'm biased and would recommend Conquest, but I'll second what Glitchy is saying and would recommend against picking it over Birthright if you don't consider yourself very experienced with the series.

Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest

Welp I just finished the game. Spoilers for the final 5 chapters:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Anyway, can someone tell me, without spoiling ANYTHING that happens in revelations, why Conquest is considered the worst in terms of story? I thought it was on par with Birthright aside from the ridiculous pacing at the very end. Overall they're both OK it's just they try to cover too much with such short expositions.

I've moved on to revelations already but I'll cover those thoughts in another post. Fog of war is back though, cool.

i started playing conquest

even by the standards of fire emblem games this plot is painfully dull, granted i'm only at chapter 8 but so far i haven't seen a single interesting character interaction. corrin is just one of the most boring wooden protagonists i've ever seen in a video game (and good GOD that dragon design is horrendous). robin was kind of a blank slate but this is a whole new level of bleh

at least the gameplay seems to have been updated. greater weapon variety and more difficult levels is a refreshing change

Man I have to say that FE: Conquest is extremely HARD! I have it on the highest difficulty and also on classic, so if my team dies, they don't come back! Im currently on the chapter where you have to find the imposter on the boat and they gradually take your money every turn :(
