Having played the japanese version, I have to say that I'm quite impressed. As others have already written, the graphics and music are excellent - a true demonstration of the capabilities of GBA.
The plot is perhaps a bit predictable, but other than that, I cannot find any complaints about it. Truly the best GBA RPG so far. [...and one of the first ones, but that's beside the point.]
However, one thing worth mentioning is that some parts of this game are quite dark and violent. Unless the english version is *heavily* censored, I feel that the ESRB rating for this game is not accurate. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone under the age of twelve.

Only a few months in , and this game proves just what the GBA is capable of. The story in this game frankly is rubbish, usual kids save the world stuff but forget that; the joy of this game is in the playing.
Graphically , GS takes it's cues from that all time great Chrono Trigger but it is slicker and prettier though it doesn't make you laugh quite as much. The battles are very much final fantasy style and you will be amazed at the quality of the graphics in the battle scenes - you really feel like you're playing a PS1 game, not a handheld.
There are some nice set pieces in the game as well, the ship from Kalay and the Colloseum spring immediately to mind but I won't spoil it for you! Also the Djinn (magical creatures which boost your stats/change your class (and therefore magic available) and can be summoned when not equipped add a real tactical aspect to the boss battles - do you go in with the Djinn on standby to summon the big hits but have low hit points and rubbish magic or do you leave the Djinn equipped and try and chip away at them - getting the balance right holds the key to the big battles, especially thge rock hard Jupiter lighthousew confrontation.
the game is BIG, so far I have racked up 27 hours on the game clock (and lots more in abortive attempts) and I've not got through it. The puzzles in the dungeons are fairly simple though I have been stumped a few times before finding the right way through.
The music and sound effects are top quality all the way through and you will find yourself humming the music.
Criticisms, well there are a few - Sometimes the game feels a bit too linear and you can't backtrack to places where you feel you've missed something - which is annoying because the routes back invariably are blocked or one way.

This game looks truely amazing. If you like the Final fantasy series on Playstation you will definatly like this game. It features vast and complex worlds and has a truely amazing story. The menues are complex but will get easier to uderstand as you move through the game. Play as four characters. The elements include wind, water, fire, and earth. Summon huge creatures who can then combine with other summons and watch as the battle graphics get a whole new and wonderful look. Animation is great and so are the characters. Multiplayer battles against friends and see who is the better fighter. This game looks totally great and should be one of the best RPG's for Gameboy Advance!

Fans of Squaresoft RPGs (Chrono Trigger especially) will love this game, and even those who are not big on RPGs will get a kick out of it. It is an action-based RPG with a battle and magic systems very similar to that of Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and the various Final Fantasy games.
Here are the Pros: The graphics and sound make you understand the true power of this little system. The fights are fast paced, and characters are colorful and well animated. The music is classic RPG material similar to the Squaresoft games. The story, albeit cliched by RPG standards, is engrossing, and will require a lot of reading and attention. This is a major plus because the time flies by as you are playing, so a long bus ride or flight won't seem so long when you are playing this.
Here are the Cons: There are very few. But the one problem that I often experience is that the hours of gameplay required takes it's toll on your batteries. As well, though "Golden Sun" can be considered gound-breaking by handheld standards, the story gives the player a real deja-vu feeling. A more fresh and original storyline would have helped. But a standard RPG story is always engrossing, you just sometimes get that "been there, done that" feeling.
"Golden Sun" is a game for the more intellegent and attentative gamer, and a great way to pass time on the road. You will be impressed by the graphics and sound, but you'll stay for the fun and adventure.

Many reviews have hit the nail on the head boasting about this games superior graphics, sound, game play, and story line. They are all superior indeed for a hand held console. With this and Breath of Fire, you'll have hours of intense RPG action at hand. This is a great game to own for any RPG gamer.
The bad? Well, the story line is sweet, yet the story telling is boring at times. You'll have to sit through many hours of reading on this one, sometimes all at once. I believe the longest wait in near the 25 minute mark. I'd enjoy the book indeed, but this is a game... for playing. I hope with the second one they wear the reading down a good bit, and then they will have a far better game to this already fantastic title. Although the reading is a drag sometimes, especially for people on the go (at least make it where I can save during the talking), I still gave it 5 stars. An excellent game by far if you have time on your hands for reading.
This game boasts the GBAs abilities very well. For those of you with "cheap" battery packs, beware, they'll drain fast on this one. Use batteries or better rechargeable's instead for longer gameplay.
