4.0 out of 5 stars Golden Sun is back! 20 Jan 2011
By Diogo
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Golden Sun: Dark Dawn for the DS is an amazing RPG.
My review is a little biased since I played the previous Golden Sun titles and they are part of my favorite games ever, however, that also gives me a little base of comparison.

As an RPG Golden Sun DD is a great game, it will stand out, it will be fun to play, it will be adictive, but that doesn't take it apart from the many great RPG's on the DS.
As a Golden Sun title I would have to say that, in terms of quality, it would fit between the two previous titles, more enjoyable than the first but not better than the second.

There are many upgrades made in this game, you now have an encyclopedia where you can store most of the game's data when it is presented, battle has improved greatly and I daresay it is the biggest improvement in this title, new psynergy allowing for new cfreative puzzles, impressive artistic design and, as usual, a great story that reminds me of the first game (for some reasons I will not explain, as they are spoilers).

I found the game enjoyable but it has flaws, and some of them are quite disapointing, for instance, the constant roadblocks that never existed in previous games, somewhat cut the game lifespan as they prevent you from re-exploring some places, hindering the overall game experience. Not that the game is small, it just makes it more linear than other games, which is something I really apreciate.

That was a bit general so I'm going to give some detailed explanations now.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Sun has risen. 4 April 2011
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I played the first two Golden Sun games on the Gameboy Advance when they were first released, and I loved them. When I found out that a third game was finally being made, I was foaming at the mouth with excitement, and got it on release.

You play as the children of the characters from the first Golden Sun here - the children of Isaac, Garet, Ivan and Mia. You also meet up with four more characters as the game progresses, some new, one players of The Lost Age will remember (I did a little squeak when they turned up - "omg, it's ____!"), and one who players of the previous games will know who it is, even though the other characters don't. ("Eh? Your father was an Adept? WHO COULD IT HAVE BEEN?!" Omg, it's so obvious for us, ahaha.)
Isaac and Garet also make a large appearence at the start of the game. You'll find Garet's grown a stupid little moustache. >.> lol.

It's a great game, but not as good as the first two. The story can be a bit iffy in places - one minute the adult Isaac and Garet are talking to their children about the Psynergy Vortexes that are appearing, and of the danger of a terrible phenonemon called the Mourning Moon. The kids are sent on a quest to find a material needed to build a soarwing to enable Isaac to fly out to the ruined Sol Sanctum to find out what's happening.

And then... it all changes. After a short while, Psynergy vortexes and the Mourning Moon are barely mentioned at all, as the story seems to go off on another tangent. It's still a good story, it's just the change is slightly confusing, especially when it jumps back to it later on and it's kinda like "Huh? What? Oh.... THOSE. I remember...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant game! 22 Dec 2010
By jcp
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing this game for about a week now and love it! The graphics are stunning, the storyline flows and the puzzles are challenging enough without being frustrating. There are random battles but just enough. I personally get frustrated when there is a battle every few seconds when you are trying to solve something. Golden sun is not like that. When you do battle the graphics are fantastic and the options for attacks are so varied it keeps you entertained. I have only played a few RPG's (dragon quest, final fantasy and zelda) but this is my favourite so far. The attention to detail is excellent - it feels like value for money - I say buy it and you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best DS Game Ever? 24 May 2011
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ive just finished the main story of this excellent game and it took me a good 25 hours and im sure theres still a good 5 hours of side dungeons to complete still. I was a huge fan of the original games and i was worried that this wouldnt be able to live up to the standard but it exceeded my expectations in every regard. The story was just as immersive as the others but i have to agree with the other reviewers in that there is a ton of dialogue. At least 50% of it could have been cut. That would be my main criticism and the only other one i have is that it could have been longer or bigger as the map felt quite small. It doesnt really finish the story that the game starts with (aka finding and returning a mountain roc feather to your parents) and it had a few other loose ends therefore i have to assume that there is going to be a sequel which is good news. The dungeons,quests and the game in genral were definately easier than the previous games but i liked that because i found the other ones a bit too hard and frustrating. Anyway, the optional dungeon bosses are still just as hard as the hardest boss battles from the previous games. In general the graphics were satisfying and i didnt ever feel like they didnt put in the effort. At times the gameplay almost felt like i was playing a Zelda DS game. I also liked how the story was a lot darker. There was a lot more death and the bad guys felt more like bad guys than in the other games which is good for us older gamers. Overall an excellent game that every RPG fan should own and a worthy addition to the Golden Sun series.
