Golden Sun

Portable Review
12 November 2005
  • Excerpt: In the early Middle Ages, mastery of alchemy was often sought after as a quick means to an end. The most common of these goals included wealth, well-being, and the creation of human life. Many moons ago, it was written off as mendacity and those who practiced alchemy were condemned as heretics and burned at the stake. If you are taking any of this as historical fact and using the material to study for an exam, do not expect to score much higher than a 16%.

Golden Sun

Just RPG
31 August 2004
  • Excerpt: Synopsis If you can cope with strenuous, constant controller button-mashing, Golden Sun provides a long, engaging quest, impressive 2D graphics, and true turn-based combat featuring the summoning of mystical and mythical creatures. All this imparts a fulfilling experience all around. Depending on how you tackle the game, expect completion time to be between 20 and 30 hours.

Golden Sun

Into Liquid Sky
1 January 2004
  • Excerpt: In Camelot Software's Golden Sun you are thrust into the world of the stereotypical silent protagonist Isaac. Isaac is accompanied by his childhood friend Garret as they begin to set out on a very common, stereotypical adventure. You'll notice I used the word "stereotypical" twice in the last two sentences. Well that's because Golden Sun can be summed up by the phrase "stereotypical RPG". Camelot took no risks when developing this game.
  • Pros: Fun battle system, Deep 'class' based system, Feels like a much bigger game
  • Cons: Lots of stale clichés, Only half of the game

Golden Sun

Nintendo World Report

  • Summary: What’s this? A non-glowing review of Golden Sun? It’s true…come inside to see why this game just isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
  • Pros: Automatic sleep mode saves battery, Excellent environment-based puzzles, Lengthy quest, Mesmerizing graphics and sound
  • Cons: Battles are way too easy, Can’t save during cut-scenes, The dialogue is indirect, immature, and far too extensive during cut-scenes, Unexciting plot and shallow characters

  • Excerpt: I’ve never been a huge fan of Japanese-style RPGs that force you to endure excruciatingly clichéd storylines and characters, random turn-based battles and anal-retentive trinket hunting. Oddly enough, Golden Sun on the GBA bears a lot of these hallmarks, and yet the gameplay is so finely tuned and compelling that it ranks up there among the best RPGs on any platform in the last 12 months.
