"The Sun Has Just Risen!!"

ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY CAUSE THE SUN HAS JUST RISEN AND THE BIRDS ARE CHIRPING LIKE MAD! Welcome to the land of Golden Sun. This is the game that you will love playing over and over again. You play the game as Isaac (or you can change the name) out to save the world from evil do-ers. Along the way, you will meet up with many different people and great sites to see. But where to begin....

Story: 7/10
The begins in a dark gloomy time... so dark that you won't see the surprises ahead... The story in this game is one of the better ones I have seen. But, remember that this is not Metal Gear Solid material here. There are some plot-twists that will astonish you. But I'm not giving away anything... for anybody. Not even you!

Gameplay: 10/10
Plays like a real gem. This is a real RPG. The definition of an RPG. The idea (and possibly innovation) of djinn is presented to you. Djinn are small creatures that you equip on your characters and gain special powers. Then you have your special powers - psynergy. This stuff is so cool! It is one of the great elements that won't be revealed in this review until you play this outstanding game. The puzzles, the battles.... where does it end???

Graphics: 10/10
These graphics are just amazing! This game truly utilizes the GBA's graphic power. You will see the colors that are so fluid that you will think as if it was playing on the SNES - one of the best systems of all time! The graphics go down to the pin point. From the eyes to the trees you will see everything there is to see!

Sound: 10/10
THE MUSIC IS JUST TOO GOOD! This music is like as if it was on the N64! It doesn't get any better than this! An enhancement would have to be you have to have headphones to make the gameplay more involved. Some of the music is so good that it can put you to sleep.

Replay Value: 5/10
The replay value for an RPG sometimes falls short. Nothing new here! It is going to end up like all other RPGs - you play it, finish it and then it collects dust until you have the urge to play it again.

Rent/Buy
BUY!! This is a must have for all GBA owners. This is the portable game of the year. One of the best. STOP READING MY REVIEW AND GO TO THE STORE AND BUY IT!!!
