Golden Sun User Reviews
The journey begins when a young, fourteen year-old boy is awakened by his mother on a stormy night. Someone, or something, had caused the Mt. Aleph boulder to come loose, and it had its sights set on the peaceful village of Vale. When the boulder finally breaks free of the elders' control, a young girl loses her family, the aforementioned boy loses his father, half of a house gets decimated, and two strangers are spotted in town talking about the cause of the storm...
With a prologue like that, very few RPG fans won't already be hooked on Golden Sun. Camelot has found a winning formula, a...
When borrowing this game from my friend, I expected it to be nothing more than an average role-playing game for the portable game boy system.
After playing for a short while, I realized I was hooked. The turn-based fighting system is quite fun and you'll soon love the creative psynergy and Djinn systems.
You play as Isaac, a teenager embarking on a perilous quest to save the world. Sure, we've all heard this story about thousand times now, but Golden Sun does a good job of changing up the gameplay to make it enjoyable. You'll meet quite a few people along the way, and only with their help ...
Golden Sun is not a typical RPG. While RPGs are usually thought to focus on an engrossing story, deep experience and a long quest, while being less impressive graphically, Golden Sun features a relatively shallow story, a straightforward and rather short quest, while being stunning in the graphics and sounds department, plus being supremely well-designed. Now, being one of the older GBA games, Golden Sun is actually still, despite its clear shortcomings, one of must-haves on the GBA.
Honestly, this game shows how much a game can be improved by the technical aspects. The soundtrack for instan...
I was the last in my group of friends to buy this game. For this, much laughter was directed at me. I didn't think it could be THAT great of a game. Of course, I was wrong. This is the ultimate GBA game... Well, for now anyway. (This is just my opinion, of course.)
The graphics are awe-inspiring. Bright, vibrant colors, nice looking characters, and great environmental work. They sure beat some of the older PSX RPG graphics. The amazing power of the GBA at work. The battle graphics are great, too. I like being able to identify what kind of creature is coming out to smash the enemy at my whim...
Presentation is excellent
Outside world slightly confusing
Hard to replenish PP in battle
The Gameboy Advance system doesn't seem to be running short of RPGs, but Camelot decides to try their hand at this already overflowing genre. Golden Sun is an entirely new series from Nintendo and Camelot and, despite dropping into a sea of games, does more than enough to make itself known and establish itself was a worthy addition to the library of games already available.
Despite the obvious limitations imposed by the system's hardware the visual quality of Golden Sun still manages to be nothing short of excellent. Exploration is down via a top-down perspective, but manages to give...
- You are able to run diagonally and not just vertically and horizontally.
- Excellent graphics on the world map.
- Creative psynergy and battle system.
- Illustrious and emotional scenes.
- Way too many cinema scenes in the game, thus making both you and your arents irritated. Camelot could have made them shorter, so you could have time to actually play the game. Many of my friends actually threw their game boys.Summary:
This game was Excellent except for the fact that you have to spend half of the time of you playing listening to the characters rabble about stuff that you might not even care about. The graphics have been wonderfully perfected, and the battle system was well done with the many types of psynergy that just await to be used by the Adepts.
The elemental system was also very well done. Earth, water, fire, and wind based everything in the game toi make all matter. Fire and water were opposing as were earth and wind.
Many sidequests await also. You can go almost anywhere and find something. Fr...
