From Golden Sun to Dark Dawn

First off Let me start by saying that i began playing the original game when i was 10. I spent countless hours beating the game then turned around and spent endless days beating its pre-qual. After Playing and beating this game spoiler t picks up quiet awhile after the events of the last game. The 2 lovers and Main heros of the last game are now parents to the New savior of weyard, and have brought back every puzzle,dijin,side quest, and ability back with it. The Golden Sun series is one of the best rpgs ivve ever played and i would recomend this game to anyone looking for a game that captures attention and keeps you hooked with many different things to do for hours on end. I have no complaints, the only thing i would say is go back and play the first 2 game to make it easier to understand the story and be up to date with everything thats doing on in Dark Dawn

A Sequel Done Right!

This game was everything I expected from the folks at nintendo and camelot. Dark Dawn brought back the beloved game play from the gameboy platform but artfully advanced with the touchscreen. I must add though that i am disappionted that with the new platform not having most of the rest of Weyard was not accessable when the memory was available for it (Ds Card). The final battle came about and i thought i had hours more to go. So kind of a let down. The graphics are the same as LOZ Phantom Hourglass. So pretty good, especially considering the step up from the advanced small single screem. Kind of Pixelated at times but overall infinitely more enjoyable for hardcore Golden Sun fans! I seriously hope this new batch of heroes find themselves called upon again.

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.
