What did people generally think of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn?

#1WiiFan77Posted 2/9/2013 3:30:45 PM
I loved the GBA games, but somehow I never got around to buying the DS one. I've been thinking about getting it now. But I seem to recall that it had surprisingly bad reception. Can anyone tell me what the general opinion was? Should I avoid it?

I don't know much about Golden Sun, but that game seems to get bashed to hell and back.

It's a good game, but it doesn't match up to GS2.
(GS2->GS1->GSDD)

Off the top of my head:
-Multiple points of no return (makes it possible to miss djinn)
-Story feels rushed / half-assed
-No difficulty at all (The game is seriously easy it's not funny)

I see... that's unfortunate. I guess I'll get it if I find it for a really low price.

The only problem for me was the difficulty. It's nonexistent.

If you enjoy the series, I say get it anyway. If there is a GS4 you'll more or less need GSDD to fit in the story line.

The game does have its moments, but it seems... you know how The Hobbit (movie) doesn't tell the whole story. It's like that.
The game ends when it starts to pick up. So here's hoping to a GS4

It's mediocre just like its predecessors.

Too easy, felt that the story could've been expanded more, two memorable characters, so much dialogue for no reason that held no charm and (if offered) little humor.

I give it a 6/10, which is lower than standard.

It's the best game in the series.

Still too much meaningless dialogue for my tastes though.

Dragon Quest 9 is the best JRPG for the DS.
