I came to Golden sun expecting a lot. But while I expected good harmonizing music I did not expect what I got. Quite a bit of the soundtrack was spectacular. The menu theme in was a treat and listening to it the first time was a defining experience in the game. A few other pieces were really good including most of the dungeon music. The battle theme was good, for the first few hundred times. Then it just fell out, of your consciousness. But not all the music was all good. It almost felt frustrating at times how you expected the music to be better than it was. I would give music 8.6/10.
Graphics were really good. Nothing to complain about on the overworld. The battles were very good. But as the flashes of color got larger so did the amount of color needed to impress you. Soon I did not care about fancy looking spells. 9/10 (I would like to point out that I care little about how the graphics are as long as they are good in their own way)
Battles were engaging enough. Very fun to begin with. Never really became a chore. 8/10 Let me point out though that the final boss was a little overdone. Way too difficult. It must have been the hardest boss I have ever faced and that is saying something. The 5-10 hours it took to best the final boss really did something to spoil my experience of the game. Some people like the hard bosses but please don't over do it. It wasn't even a fun final boss.
Now onto the important stuff, the overall journey. While the story was less then great I have had plenty of wowing experiences throughout the game. It has all sorts of moments that really made it great to play. And on the other hand there were some places that were truly not fun. So this game was like a batch of grapes that had some wonderful grapes many ok grapes and then a few rotten ones. But the game wasn't a whole experience for the most part. Most other games I find blend into a general whole experience.
So was I a little disappointed? I would lie if I said no. But in all honestly I can't say It was a bad game. 8.5/10
