Very Good

Great RPG

This is one of the best RPGs I've played in a while. The use of magic is mostly effortless (although I do wish there were more ways to quick-access them), the use of the Djinn is useful and fascinating, and I love the ability to summon power allies in battle. The availability of new and better equipment is well-paced and matches the tougher opponents nicely.

My only real complaint is that there is too much emphasis on the original Golden Sun story (which I've never played), which makes me feel I'm only following in the tracks of others. The entire story is available in the books you find during the game, so the continual reference and description of past history is unnecessary and irritating.

Golden sun, Golden sun lost age, and Golden Sun Dark Dawn a game that you can join in to and get in to as it takes off fast and keeps you wanting more I recommend if you want this game to rent it being it fills you in on the previous 2 games but in order to enjoy the full experience of the game rent Golden Sun and Golden sun lost age an then Golden sun dark dawn I promise if you like the story there wont be another game with a good story to keep your eye its the best absolute best in my view of story game play and graphics, it will make you a fan of the saga I don't even want to tell you any part of the story to allow it to engulf you in its marvel. GIVE THIS A RENT I'M SURE YOU WILL BUY IT SOON AFTER!

I have been waiting for this game since I finished Golden Sun: The Lost Age, and I knew there would be a sequel. I have been disappointed by the time it took to develop, but once I got this into my DS, I realized just how worth the wait this game was. Improved battle graphics (bound to happen on the step up to DS); simple and easy to use controls, whether using the stylus (which I've never really been a fan of) or the buttons; more Djinni to find and use; old-school battle system (for those of you who like that); and a truly deep story that flows easily are just a few of the things to loved about this game. I have always enjoyed this games puzzle solving feature, combining mainly RPG styling with a little bit of problem solving keeps the game interesting. It reminds me of a cross between Final Fantasy and The Legend of Zelda series'. For these reasons, I highly recommend at least renting this game.
