Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

Has anyone got this game? I got it for my birthday, thinking it was a regular RPG. But it turns out to be different, yet at the same time, it seems a rip off of Final Fantasy (not sure which one lol. Just pick one.) The puzzles are fairly easy. Very few were hard. The only boss so far that I died on was when you fight those weird soldier ppl right after you find the old guy with his two apprentices. That was only because I wasnt ready for a boss. Of course, I should have been, because, like all RPG's, that will always happen at the end of a dungeon. lol. Tell me what you think of this game. I would love to be told I am wrong, so I can rage quit the game lol. (prolly won't happen, but you know lol.)

So far, I heard that this game is mediocre compared to the rest, but still good if you're a fan of the series, so I'm still willing to give this game a shot

I played the second Golden Sun when I was younger, and liked it up until a certain point. I was terrible at RPG's until just a few years ago. I may give this one a shot sometime, we'll see. Right now I'm more interested in a 3Ds, the new Kid Icarus and Pokemon b/w.

It is pretty good, but not like the rest of the series. I suggest you try it lol. It is especially good if you like the puzzle aspect to an rpg. It makes it not so much an rpg, but more a puzzle game. As I said, the bosses weren't very hard, and the puzzles seem to be the main part of the game. But if I were to rate this game, I would give it a 3.5 out of 5. (It lacked a complicated rpg element to it. Some of the puzzles were fun, but they weren't rpg.)

What do you mean by "it lacked a complicated RPG element"? I think games are better when they are more accessible, especially RPGs. Pokemon is the perfect example. When you are a child, it is challenging, but with persistence can be beaten. When you are a teen/adult, you discover this whole new layer of strategy you were unaware of, and it becomes more in depth, but still offers the same challenge.

lol it just wasn't really that hard. It was like pokemon in that aspect i guess lol. I didn't find pokemon hard when I was little. Okay that is sort of a lie. I found Ice Cave for the first time damn near impossible lol. I spent over 200 hours trying to do that. I finally did it, and I beat the game in 5 more hours lol. I am almost done with Golden Sun and I only have 13 hours lol. It is not rpg in that aspect as well. RPG's should be really long, like 50 hours to beat lol. That is what I like about playing most rpg's. Tales of Symphonia is epic because it takes about 100 hours if you want to play whole game, beating all the bonus games and all that crap. But Golden Sun just doesn't have that kind of stuff. I still find the game fun, because of the puzzle crap, but I don't think RPG's should be based off of puzzles. I like the fight/level up thing. That is just how I feel though lol. I dont know how you guys feel about it.

Paper Mario is an excellent RPG and it's only about 20 hours. Eternal Sonata is a masterpiece, and it is only 30 hours.

My friend is a die-hard fan of the series and bought this not too long ago. The only beef he had with it was the game's difficulty. Everything else was up to par, apparently.

Thirty hours is fine with me, but if it is less than 20, then I have a problem. I should have this game beat in about 15 hours. I still enjoy it, I just don't think it is rpg lol. That was my only problem with it.

lol fox. It is something you would enjoy. Get it for the ds. You will love it. And yes, FF is great. I just dont like rip offs of it. It is not really even totally like it, just some of the aspects, like the Djinni compared to the GF's from FF VIII. That is one of my big problems about the rip off thing.
