Golden Sun (GBA / Game Boy Advance)

Game Profile

In a dark time, an epic adventure dawns...

Evil is slowly covering the world. Forces of darkness are pursuing the lost art of Alchemy, and as they draw even closer to their final purpose, mankind hangs in the balance. You and your companions are the last hope: armed with noble weapons, magical Psynergy, and a host of elemental creatures, you must find a way to stem the evil tide.

Game Features:

  • An enormous RPG shines on the Game Boy Advance! With incredible graphics, an engrossing story line, and a huge world to explore, you'll be playing long after the sun sets.
  • Unbelievable magic! Gather the four types of elemental creatures-fire, water, wind, and earth-and combine them in different ways for some of the most awe-inspiring magical spells ever seen.
  • Go head-to-head with a friend! Link up with a Game Boy Advance Game Link cable (sold separately) and square off your parties in a no-holds-barred battle!

Can you save mankind and restore peace to the land?

Ahaha, I knew it was coming! Heh, and the first to comment as well...my GS fangirlishness knows no bounds.

I'm looking forward to see what one of my favorite games of all time recieves on my favorite Nintendo site. It also means I can review it myself when the user review function is up and running, yay!



Corbs said:

It's the gift that keeps on giving! And a great game to boot. I just popped it in my GBA SP2 a few minutes ago. It's been almost two years since I've ran through it.



Noire said:

Yep, it keeps on flowing, even when you want it to dry up!

Sweet, I love to fire that game up. The opening screen is so simple, but it think it's quite great. I ran through both again around January because I was feeling RPG-starved. Two years would be like an eternity for me. I'm glad you get the chance to run through it again, Corbie. And I can't wait to read the review!



TingLz said:

Why would you want it to dry up? I can't wait until the second game is listed with this one.



Noire said:

@Iz: I don't want it to dry up, but I'm sure many people have tired of my incessant Golden Sun talk over the last few months. So I'm sure they would like to see it go away, though their wish will never be granted.

Forever and a day I shall talk about Golden Sun, until even God himself tires of me and kicks me out of heaven.



TingLz said:

@phoenix: I don't mind your incessant talk about Golden Sun. Just in case people wonder what the game series is, you'll be there to help them out.



Noire said:

This is quite a bit late (about two weeks, sorry), Skrimfid, but it's good to see you're enjoying it!



Fronzy said:

@Tri4ceHolder One of the best games I've played. So different and it's an awesome RPG! Great concepts and a great story line! I recommend if you enjoyed titles like Legend of Zelda or Pokemon.
