Summary: The gameplay is same as before, something that Golden Sun fans love. Graphics and music are great! The biggest letdown is how quickly the game is beat. Not enough interaction and involvement as GS and GS:TLA.
Summary: It was very disappointing. It wasn't challenging enough and with rather redundant puzzles... although it was nice to have the healer right away. The 3-D figures of the characters looked bad as well. Well, hopefully they make their next one better (at least I think that cliff-hanger ending means another Golden Sun game).
Summary: It is! It's my fault for being desperate for a good JRPG on my DS. I'm so desperate that I'll pick up the aggressively mediocre spawn of one of my favorite portable RPGs, and you know what? I'll probably even play it to the end. Golden Sun: Dark Dawn is a disappointment, made all the more so by the excellent first installment of the series, which came out way back in 2001. The sequel, Golden Sun: The Lost Age, well-reviewed but unplayed by me, came out back in 2003.
Summary: The Good: When I first purchased this product I was so excited because it had been finally released after the long years of waiting and speculation. Upon playing the game I was content because some of the same dynamic were still present in the game. The same sound effects were still there which gave a sense of nostalgia. Certain things were also improved in the game but not entirely necessary.
