    The best RPG the GBA has to offer.

    So this is the sequel to Golden Sun, and a worthy one at that. The game is bigger and has more sidequests. The battle system is identical to the first one so if you were dissapointed with the first one this won't be ... Read Full Review

    In the end, Golden Sun: The Lost Age is a flawless RPG with a great continuation of the original cliffhanger.

    The Game Boy Advance was released in June of 2001. When Nintendo announced that this handheld was more powerful than a Super Nintendo, fans rejoiced. This gave Nintendo the opportunity to re-release certain games and to ... Read Full Review

    The long awaited sequel that has brought the chapters finally to a close.

    I've waited for this game for long time after I finished the first Golden Sun. This sequel was definitely the cream of the crops when it comes to story. You continue from where the last game left off, only you play throu... Read Full Review

    Absolutely stunning-Ingenious puzzles and a breathtaking story immerse the player in the exotic world of Golden Sun.

    This is my all-time favorite GBA game for a variety of reasons: First of all, as RPG's go the battle system may seem standard, but the sheer variety of summons and different classes and the Djinni system recreate the ... Read Full Review
