Golden Sun Review by: ExiledPariah - 9.5/10
Golden Sun is viewed by many reviewers and players alike as one of the best Role Playing Games to be released for the Game Boy Advance. It was released on November 12, 2001, less than 6 months after the release of the Game Boy Advance, and went on to win Nintendo Power's award for best Game Boy Advance game of the year. This game has inspired one sequel on the Game Boy Advance and one to be released for the DS sometime in 2010.

The game itself plays like other turn-based Role Playing Games such as Final Fantasy, so this is definitely a game to try for any RPG fans that have not done so. The game offers a vast amount of quests, which are sure to keep the players entertained. The characters in the game practice alchemy, a form of magic. Altogether there are four types of magic in the Golden Sun universe: Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water. Throughout the game, you will meet other adepts of alchemy who will join your party and help you in your path. Each character has a unique set of spells, which will prove useful in solving the puzzles throughout the game.

One unique aspect of this game is the use of the elemental Djinn found throughout the game. The djinn exist in each of the four practices of magic in the game. While some are merely obtained when found, some must be defeated in order to join your party. They may be utilized in two ways: you may use their powers individually in battle, each of which contains a different power (such as being able to heal your party, being able to attack an enemy twice in a single turn, and many more). The other way to utilize your djinn's power is to use the power of more than one at once to summon a stronger creature to attack your enemies with one devastating strike, such as Thor or Ramses (who is a pharoah who followed the Egyptian sun god Ra). These two methods each add a unique aspect to the gameplay of Golden Sun, proving it a unique gameplay experience indeed.

Graphics: 9.5/10

The graphics are excellent, especially for the game only being published a few months after the Game Boy Advance is released.

Sound: 10/10

The music in this game is among my favorite of any game. In my opinion, the music in this game is better than that of many games for the current major gaming systems, which is astounding coming from a handheld system such as the Game Boy Advance.

Gameplay: 10/10

The gameplay in this game is impeccable. Take a Final Fantasy game of years past, add a unique djinn attack/summoning system, and four different types of magic, and you get this game. It surpassed my expectations in every way.

Replayability: 8.5/10

While some people would gladly replay this game upon completion, there is not a great deal of new material to discover. The arena battle mode makes this game more replayable than a standard Role Playing Game, as the player can battle monsters of increasing strength until the player's party is unable to continue (the game keeps track of the player's best killing spree, so there is always a feeling of wanting to beat the previous record).

Overall: 9.5/10

Golden Sun Box Description:
In a dark time, an epic adventure begins as evil slowly envelops the world! The forces of darkness are pursuing the lost art of Alchemy, and as they draw ever closer to their foul purpose, mankind\'s future hangs in the balance. You and your companions are the last hope: armed with noble weapons, mysterious Psynergy and a host of elemental creatures, you must find a way to stem the evil tide. Your ordinary life is over, as a Golden Sun rises above you and forever broadens your horizon!rn

Golden Sun Description: Isaac is from the town of Vale, on the island of Angara. He is an Adept, meaning he is skilled in Psynergy. This is the technique of moving objects without touching them. Mages from the rival island of Gondowan plan to destroy Angara by using four Elemental Stones, so Isaac has assembled a team to snatch the stones.

In the universe of this role-playing game, four different types of elements (fire, water, wind and earth) are combined to create spells. Combat often involves facing multiple monsters at each time.

Djinni creatures can be captured and used to give one of your characters extra strengths. Energy is needed to cast spells, but this constantly replenishes while you are not using one. A two-player link-up game exists.

Golden Sun Cheats and Codes
Golden Sun Cheats, Codes and Tips:
Data Transfer from GS to GS: The Lost Age

On the title screen screen hold the R button, left on the D-pad, and then press B. A new option will appear on the right called "Send". This allows you to transfer your data to Golden Sun: The Lost Age with a password. It is best to beat the game first before doing any transferring.

There are 3 different levels of transfer available pertaining to the amount of data that is transferred.
1) Gold: Everything is transferred- Coins, items, character stats, experience level, Djinn, and weapons
2) Silver: Everything except coins and items- including weapons
3) Bronze: Only transfers Djinn and experience level.

The length of the code that is given decreases dramatically after Gold. Gold has about 250 characters while the other two range from 60-100 characters.

With this transfer you will be able to travel with 8 characters instead of 4, and can use each character in battle by switching them with other characters.

 you can do it easily, take screenshots of your code, save them and copy the code manually on golden sun 2
cheezerton 12-10-14 - 10:01 AM
 If only there was a way to use this save file for the second Golden Sun game. I read it has a lot of extra features when you do that.
cheezerton 12-10-14 - 10:00 AM
 Okay game I suppose. Took me 37 hrs to beat it first try. It lacked quite a bit compared to FF games, but it was still good... especially for a GBA game.

 @Isaac Dian If you attack the same enemy, and that enemy gets defeated before a character attacks it, that character defends by default

 Fun fun but I don't like that I had to rely on guides so much. Really so many different mechanics. Time for the lost ages!
Truntis 08-23-13 - 07:57 PM
 Also, you can select certain Psynergy (like Mind Read or Move) to the L or R buttons (default a and s on keyboard). Just hit the A button or select, bring up the Psynergy menu, highlight desired character, then hit L or R. Confirm which Psynergy to use.
bloodyb 06-10-13 - 03:57 AM
 while standing next to somebody you will just talk to them. You have to be stand right next to somebody to use your mind read power so you need another way to make this screen pop up without talking to them. That is why you need the select button.
bloodyb 06-10-13 - 03:56 AM
 I'll go into a little more detail for you. If you press the a button it will bring up the same thing the select button will. In order to move on in certain parts of the game you will have to be able to bring up this panel but if you press the a button
bloodyb 06-10-13 - 03:52 AM
 the speed button. My point is that you need to make a new select button. Double click the screen and it will bring up the controls and you can pick a new button for select. If you don't do this than you won't be able to advance.
bloodyb 06-10-13 - 03:50 AM
 This is a must read for people. On certain parts of this game you will need 2 use a power called mind read 2 advance and you have to click the select button and chose mind read. Vizzed made the select button the space bar button which they also made that
