Summary

Nintendo's classic role-playing game series branches out with a new look, countless adventures and heroic battles. At the end of Golden Sun: The Lost Age, the heroes succeeded in bringing the world-healing power of the Golden Sun back to the world of Weyard. In the 30 years since, the immense power of the Golden Sun has changed nearly everything. Continents have shifted. New countries have emerged. New species have appeared. But the world is now imperiled by a new threat. Psynergy Vortexes, which suck the elemental Psynergy from both the land and power-wielding Adepts alike, are spreading across the world. The new generation of heroes -- the children of those from the previous games–are drawn into the mystery behind the vortexes, as they cross a chaotic world that is succumbing to a new evil... Offering a planet-sized world of adventure to explore and conquer, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn puts the raw power of the elements in players' hands. Each of the game's playable characters is capable of carrying Djinn, spirits that imbue their owner with unique and powerful abilities. Players can collect more than 70 unique Djinn, granting them the ability to summon mighty deities who unleash devastating attacks that fill both Nintendo DS screens. Djinn powers can also be used to navigate puzzling dungeons and overworld environments that will have players flinging fireballs to burn away obstacles, freezing water to raise platforms, or summoning whirlwinds to create bridges out of floating objects.

Very disappointed with this game for a number of reasons. It's so darn easy, the cut-scenes are so beyond long and all they are is repetition of crap I just heard. I love JRPGs but this game isn't doing it for me.

Finally hit half a million. At least it manged that much, but it still deserved more. Lack of advertisement and strong competition (The DS has quite a few good RPGs going for it) hurt this game.
