Nothing in Dark Dawn forced me to grind hours for another Tisiphone Edge or Lex Lachesis or made me hardreset till I got my wanted item from Sunshine…. Those seem like acceptable ratings, actually, but the game wasn’t received that well; the sales numbers should tell you that. !like the use of lucky medal , more forgable stuff ,wings of anemos and etc!

The world, the characters, and especially the attacks in combat look great". I found out about DD and i played it. golden sun is our heart.we all want camelot to release golden sun 4 so that our worries and impatience would go away. lol JK but seriously!!! Alchemy has been restored to the world, and old villains return. They attempt to sneak into Morgal's castle through an underground labyrinth with Sveta's aid, but Blados, Chalis, and Arcanus reappear. It would not be the first game to have an unresolved cliffhanger ending. There’s not enough interest from fans to justify making a fourth game. You could either have Djinn as “set” or “standby”.

The mysteries and the past of Alex and his involvement with others are only beginning to unravel. A new Golden Sun game would make me buy one so fast despite them being more expensive over here.). They took the wrong direction with that game and it shouldn’t be considered Golden Sun canon as I am sure there are fan fictions that blow Dark Dawn’s story out of the water…, GOLDEN SUN: THE LAST ADEPT!!!!!! Unfortunately during my purchase o the game I didn’t have enough money on me at the time to buy the gameboy so I just bought the game and put it to the side. Golden Sun was waaaaaaay ahead of its time in terms of gameplay and the most obvious, graphics and detail. Over on Metacritic, the game has a “metascore” of 79, and a user score of 8.1 based on 85 ratings. So I played it again. Also, as I side note, I bought my GBA with my own money in grade 2, and I didn’t have allowance. I mean, it’s 30 years already but nothing grows in military-wise, I just wish someone could just create some tank with alchemy or even a sword with alchemic power,, or even create an enchanting system, where the player could put element to their weapon. i say to me that if they’re planning a sequel to dark dawn, they’re gonna have to have a complete overhaul of the gaming mechanics, storyline, glitches and bugs.
