To much pointless dialogue

Ben Furney, Amazon

  • Summary: As a fan of the old golden sun games, I really wanted this. It has improved any mechanics since the original trilogy, thats a bummer. Its pointless dialogue. Not enough puzzle solving. oh well.

  • Summary: this is pretty much up to who you are, but I didn't find this game particularly fun to play, give it a shot if you loved the game boy advance game though.

  • Summary: pretty good game. I am a big fan of the original Golden Sun and Golden Sun the Lost age. those had moments that felt magical. this more or less doesn't. I found myself beating the game quickly and less attached.

A flawed version of Golden Sun

  • Summary: Golden Sun: Dark Dawn has a few huge problems that prevents it from being quite as good as its predecessors. In particular: its predecessors are what gives it trouble. I'd probably rate it higher if I weren't able to predict the entire plot, know exactly how to solve every puzzle, and know all of the "big twists" ahead of time (there is a masked man whose identity will be ABSOLUTELY OBVIOUS to anyone who played either of the first 2 games) just by playing the first 2.

A clear lead-up to a sequel

Jake Heyman, Amazon
9 February 2011
  • Summary: Man, this game is fantastic, because it tugs on all of the right heartstrings. It's almost identical to previous titles in the series, and with good reason, there's not much in the formula that needed to be tweaked. Visually it's very impressive, and the summons are cooler than ever. Mechanics are identical to the earlier titles, and the puzzles are still present. The only problems with this game are that it's waaaaaaaay too easy. Not a single boss was hard to beat.

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn review

jade2rubylife, Ebay
23 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this game because I liked the previous 2 Golden Sun games. This game was not as good as the old ones. Despite so called improved quality in pictures, the game story was not that great. There was too much talking/dialogue and less fighting. There were not a lot of monsters to fight. The game seem to end unexpectedly.

Typical Golden Sun game

pofGrande, Bestbuy
20 January 2011
  • Summary: Just like the last two games, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn delivers an entertaining handheld RPG that doesn't push the established framework, but works well...
  • Pros: Graphics, music, play time.
  • Cons: Ending, Lack of improvements

GBA graphics were better

Paweł Zakrzewski, amazon.co.uk
24 October 2013
  • Summary: That's pretty much it. This pseudo-3D look is terrible - it's so bad I can't just ignore it and play, I am annoyed by it every time I see it, which means most of the gameplay, unfortunately. Sure, fights look good, and whenever there's a 2D story told, it is beautiful as well, but this really ruins the game for me.

Not as good as its predecessors.

D. Lucas "guidebook vulture", amazon.co.uk
6 October 2011
  • Summary: I enjoyed the first two GS games immensley on the Gameboy Advance. The first was probably the best one, as it was well-paced. The second one, Lost Kingdom, seemed a little over-crowded and confusing, but over-all, it was a good meaty game to keep you exploring for weeks. So obviously I was excited about Dark Dawn, but somehow, it killed the series for me. There may be spoilers ahead, so don't read if you want to avoid them.
