While The Blazing Blade was a traditional Fire Emblem, Sacred Stones is a bit of an outlier for earlier titles. Sacred Stones takes a lot of cues from Fire Emblem: Gaiden, one of the bonified black sheep of the series. It’s a shorter game, because there are two distinct paths to take, and you can also grind if you’re having trouble with a map. As a result, Sacred Stones feels easier, but grinding wasn’t really embraced until recent entries. Like Gaiden, Sacred Stones is considered a black sheep of the series, but it’s more mechanically sound than its spiritual predecessor.
