I liked the series because it had a good story, good characters, graphics were amazing for the GBA (though that's not that important to me), and I'm a huge JRPG fan anyway. If you really hate the genre, I don't think Golden Sun will be any better for you than most other JRPGs.

The dialogue that put you off is the best storyline of any game that I've played, and that's saying something; even better than platinum console games that are "story focused" like Mass Effect. (Which was a hunk of shit, but that's not for this conversation.)
Quite simply, I don't think the game is for you if you don't like dialogue. it's a RolePlaying Game; you are playing the role of Isaac/Felix and their band of misfits. Also, I recommend playing them in order; I personally wouldn't start 2 until I've finished 1.
Hope you can get into these games - they're quite frankly fantastic, in every sense of the word.

@haddad - obvious for you to say that...XD

@private - mass effect is good, XD...when i played GS2 , i thought the series was like FF, every game different story, except for x-2 and xii:revenant...so the story is good? i just skip the dialogs of the GS2 and 1 back in the day..XD...

@Felix - Best story would be FFX...XD...IMO...

oh... also the puzzles are kinda irratating , GBA screen is a little , you know, not enough size...XD...

Ah yeah.
No, the series is a continuing arc - might be why you didn't find the story interesting. Also, I would recommend not skipping the dialogue; I usually hate really wordy video-games but I've read every single bit of text in GS1&2.

The screen IS quite small, but I believe it works with the puzzles. The puzzle mechanics, in my opinion, are great - although not for everyone. It involves the use of some thought - what psyenergy do I need, how will they interact, and so on.

Which reminds me, I should hunt down the old GB Final Fantasy(Legend I believe?) Owned one back in the day, I beat it, I just don't remember a thing about it.

There are a lot of things I like about Golden Sun

- Great storyline
- Interesting/likable characters
- Great graphics for its system
- Simple yet fun battle system
- Fun and sometimes challenging puzzles
- Very big world for a handheld game

what totally sold me were the graphix at the battle screen

it was REALLY good for GBA i couldn't believe it at the time.
so I bought it right away. ( gooood times

)

I played the second for a long time but i was stuck at a boss that was invincible to all my attacks ( i learned today by playing golden sun 3 what i had to do >.> lol)
anyhoo far as i know from golden sun 2, the music was just as good
yay.gif


now i'm playing golden sun 3 and it rocks!!!
yay.gif
the graphix during battle are really good IMO
It feels the same as the other golden sun.. i mean the pussles are the same with the psynergy stuff you have to do n all that
happy.gif
I looove it!!
( to be honest, when i first saw that golden sun 3 Became 3D i was dissapointed a LOT.. but i noticed it worked out pretty well , nothing to worry about !!

Let me guess, Poseidon (the one where you need the trident)?
