Such a great game. It has a great story, every character has his own story, the overworld map where point of no return weren't included. This is one of the best games i have ever played and one of my favorites and i hope they will sometime in the future make some movies of it because this game is fantastic.

9.5Classic!

This game is, in my opinion, an underrated masterpiece! I don't know how Camelot created such a game with the limitations of the GB Advance. I must say that the combats are perfect, depending on the actions you do in battle the camera will rotate which is something very original and unique in these old games, also you can use the power of friendly and powerful creatures called Djinns who can give you boosts, inflict a super attack on enemies, etc. These Djinns also change your characters' classes, stats and magics. Another thing amazing in combat is that some weapons have a chance of making a really bad ass strike which keeps the battles fresh and intense. And the music of the game is superb, the story very good and amazing graphics.

This game just blew my mind. Not because it's something else and something I've never seen before. No. Everything in this game felt familiar from the beginning. And that's maybe the secret of this game. It feels like a good old fashioned J-RPG from a long time ago. A game where you sit there and just smile while you play it because it feels good.

9.5Classic!

How can a game so generic be so charming? Simple, it's charmingly generic. I spent so many hours on the road with this game that it's gotten engraved in my heart. This game already felt nostalgic the second I was playing it because it was basically a homage to datedness in JRPGs but it's so cutely dated! The story that seems so generic, it's just done really well! The combat, well, it's generic, but it's done really well! It feels harsh to call it generic, when everything about this game is done, REALLY well! If it's done so well and so amazingly, how can it be disliked? Easily the best Game Boy Advance game, simply because it does things so well. Camelot, please continue to do things WELL!

Golden Sun, in its own special way, reflects the ending of an era. It's a console-style RPG that on the surface tributes games from the Super Nintendo era, but truthfully has more in common with its contemporaries: Japanese RPGs of the late 90s and early 2000s. It also does an excellent job showing why the two eras are distinct and why concepts from one don't work so well in the context of the other. http://jshgaming.com/blog/?p=35

4.5Average

It's just a basic generic rpg. The story isn't good, the combat is too easy, and the graphics aren't that great, though the music is good. The puzzles are interesting, but getting stuck means running around accidentally grinding, making the game even more too easy.

Yet another great RPG, similar in style to games like final fantasy it manages to set itself apart by a large amount of puzzles involving using combat spells to alter the world.

9.0Fantastic

The first game I got for the GBA and am so glad I got it. A brilliant JRPG which has enthralled me for three games. Djinn, psyenergy, crazy haircuts It's all there. If you haven't played it buy it cheaply off the internet cause its that good.
