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.

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!

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.

I really like this new updated version of Golden Sun. It still has the essence of the old games which is a good thing I think. Music and graphics are on par and characters are very similar to the old ones we had (Isaac, Jenna, Ivan and Garet) I also think that the user interface is quite easy to use and good for first time players also new to the game. A good solid RPG game and I recommend it to anyone especially RPG and Golden Sun fans. The only down side I'd say is the long dialogue speeches, sometimes they just seem to talk forever and ever. Apart from that, it's a great game.

This game is a sequel to Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age, both for the Gameboy Advance. I do not own a Gameboy Advance, nor do I own a regular DS, so I have never played these games. I understand that they're really really good, but I only know this from hearsay. All that I've got to judge the series on is this game. And it is a bit of a mixed bag.

The gameplay here is pretty clever. Your characters are given psynergy based on a specific element which allows them to do special moves. Earth adepts for example can move certain rocks, air adepts can blow flowers into the air making elevated paths etc. It leads to a lot of creative puzzles which is good. You gain new moves by collecting djinns, which you then attach to one of your characters. Think Pokemon except they help you fight instead of fighting for you. The mechanics of this are too complicated to get into in a brief review, but they are not too difficult to master. None of the fights are that difficult until the last one, at which point you better hope you've been leveling up enough!

The characters in this game are pretty good. Matthew is your PC, and as such he never speaks. Just like Link. I could get real sick of this... On the plus side they do give you options as to how emotionally he'll respond: hyper, happy, indifferent, or angry. None of these matter, but they'll get a slightly different reaction out of whoever you're talking to and make you feel a bit more like you're controlling him. Matthew is also an earth adept. Karis is a wind adept who is basically the sensible one of the party.
