    No doubt, the best GBA game in terms of quality and gameplay. My cousins had this two carts and wish they were mine. I just borrowed them and played it long time ago(still dont have the NDS that time and a flashcart) and GS pushed the limits of the GBA graphicswise.

    Well, it was pretty cool, the only thing I found new to it is that it's the game that pushed the GBA's graphics hardware to the limits though, playing the sequel probably adds up to it but never had the time to try it out. It's a pretty good game, I don't like RPGs that much but I managed to finish this.

    Never played Golden Sun even though I had GBA since release in UK, allways wanted it but never got round to it, but now coz of the recommendation it's time to dig out my NDSL and play it I think.

    Golden Sun 1 & 2 are without a doubt my favourite GBA games, and I'd also rank them as some of my favourite RPGs of all time across any platform. I love 'em [​IMG]

    Tears for joy when a Golden Sun DS is announced.

    Golden Sun is one of my favorites, and one of the reasons why I absolutely had to have the GBA RAM Expansion when I was seeking a slot-1 card!

    As for the next issue? A couple of my personal faves: Sonic Battle and Yggdra Union are quite nice.

    The problem is that the ending of the 2nd was not very conclusive.. that's why everyone waits for a 3rd game :/

    For those who doesn't know, the 2nd game is a direct sequel, I like consider both games as one big game actually [​IMG]


    I remember hearing some time ago that Camelot had a Wii rpg project going on, some rumors were around that it was a new Golden Sun. Now it's been a long time since I've heard that..

    Great idea, and great game!
    I'll send some titles in some time.

    But maybe a nice idea to add a GameRankings link? So people can directly go to any preferred reviewsite that they want + they can see it's average score.

    You were the one who made fanboys cry.

    Of course, I could be totally mistaken. No, I'm not. It even says it on that website.

    My first RPG game ever (besides Pokemon?).
    I must say, if I started off with any other RPG game, I would not be into the genre at all.

    Definitely my all time favorite game.

    I really cant stand most turn based rpg, but this game was so well done, so freakin' fun to play that i loved it!! I liked both golden sun games ... i cant see them as seperate games cause golden sun 2 is part 2 of the same adventure.
    Good choice, it is a gem of the gba system.

    Next week gotta be metroid zero.

    Says the makers are TakaM and Opium, aren't those two members here? xD

    Is the Golden Sun Fake actually downloadable anywhere?
