First, i'd like to say this was a great game. I started by trying to get through it fast but that still took pretty long. The story was almost never ending and it felt good to help other people out and have them help you out by giving a clue, cool item, or new skill. I love the way it shows what stats are improved and skills you learn when you level up. The team you have grows and new characters just complete the ultimate team and makes you wanna just be the main character or any other of the secondary characters that join you along your journey. I cant help but continue to play this game. I want to know what new adventure that these odd, but cool characters will lead me to this time, or the next. I love this game and hope that new game techs use these original ideas and cool graphics like this. The sequel, sorry to spoil, is great too!
A GBA Classic
Hands down one of my favorite games that I ever owned for the GBA, and I owned quite a few. Golden Sun is a story about 2 kids that leave their safe, quiet town of Vale to embark on a journey to save the world. Using their abilities, known as "Psynergy," they meet new people to help them along the way, and other helpful allies called Djinn that are used to increase their strength and give them new Psynergy. This game has a Final Fantasy style battle system, but it feels completely different and unique. There is only ONE complaint I have about this game that keeps me from giving it a perfect, and that is that the cut-scenes are FILLED with pointless text that just seems like a waste of time, and there is no possible way to skip the scenes. Other than that, Golden Sun is a great game that you will easily clock-in 20+ hours into, and still come back wanting more, which is good, considering there are 2 more games that continue the story, and are just as good.
