i liked it, despite its flaws it is a fun game with a nice story, puzzles and grafix (those Summons)

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.

pirates ruined sales for this great game :(

I think this is the first time I've seen and RPG in the NA outsell both JP and EU combined

A fun game and quite beautiful, but unfortunately too slow with too much dialogue and not enough action. In addition there aims a young audience which has the result of removing any difficulty

Nintendo did a horrible job advertising this game with the little ads they did do. They explain nothing at all about the game, it's gameplay, that it's an RPG, etc. It was so long ftre the first two tha they needed to reintroduce the game but didn't seem to be bothered to. It wasn't even clear it was a Nintendo made game.

Well, I guess we won't be seeing Golden Sun in years after this :S

dont understand why the sales are bad c,c this game is awesome
stitch55555 (on 27 July 2011)
horrible sales here in Europe, I can't understand ...
MrT-Tar (on 13 July 2011)
sales like this sometimes make me embarrassed to live in Europe...
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 04 June 2011)
finished it!! awesome game...
cromeros (on 03 June 2011)
Go Golden Sun!!!!
oni-link (on 28 May 2011)
damn piracy really hurt this game!!!
cromeros (on 13 May 2011)
+ 400.000 units... XD
Fededx (on 03 May 2011)
Got it today, amazing graphics!
Roar_Of_War (on 29 April 2011)
Maybe this will reach about half a million lifetime. Not bad I guess. This is a good game, and I'm hoping to see an even better Golden sun on the 3DS. =)
cromeros (on 27 April 2011)
Great game.. BUT... LOW sales... :(... Still.. I want a sequel...
Zephyr-Wings (on 25 April 2011)
Really enjoyed the game. Can't wait for a sequel!
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 27 February 2011)
i'm surprised at how good this game is!!
pokeclaudel (on 18 February 2011)
I think they waited too long to release this game. I loved the first 2 golden sun's but I just couldn't get into this one. My tastes in games have changed in the last 9 years.
jonager (on 07 February 2011)
nintendo fans were asking yrs for this and when it finanly arrives they don't buy it lol

pokemon
Fededx (on 04 February 2011)
This game should sell better... There are too many great RPGs on the DS, it's hard to sell a million copies. I hope I can buy a copy of this in March, with Okamiden!
Faxanadu (on 03 February 2011)
Started playing this, then gave up after 10 minutes due to annoying story start and stupid "emoticon"
arcane_chaos (on 26 January 2011)
surprising to see how strong NA sales are, has more than japan and EMEAA combined!
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 13 January 2011)
... These are like the worst sales I've ever seen in EMEAA :/
Christian973 (on 10 January 2011)
They made a mistake on releasing this game at the end of the DS's life. Should have been a 3DS title instead and expand it's audience.
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 09 January 2011)
well, the game was dead as the it's been many years since the last Golden Sun came out, hope it picks up some time
spurgeonryan (on 07 January 2011)
Wow! Not even christmas saved this game in EMEAA?
Just-Jo (on 06 January 2011)
@askme > it's a new game, it releases just few weeks ago
Kenology (on 05 January 2011)
I'm not nearly as impressed with the game as you all are. I thought GS1&2 were much better games. This one just isn't as much fun and not even half as interesting. I'm just playing it to get it out of the way at this point. Still, I hope it does some respectable numbers in the end.
askme (on 04 January 2011)
Too bad its not selling better, its a really good game. Can someone tell me why there are so many N/A in the sales chart? are sales so low they can't be tracked or something? :(
AkiraGr (on 04 January 2011)
Great game I 'm on the 21st hour and I 'm very pleased Camelot returned the series.
TheLivingShadow (on 03 January 2011)
It's a really great game, buy it.
Fededx (on 01 January 2011)
People BUY THIS GAME!
Buzzi (on 01 January 2011)
Yes it is very well made, not near perfection like GS 1&2, but still an 8.5 game.
Roar_Of_War (on 31 December 2010)
I did beat the main storyline. It's a very well-made game. Only problem are the missables. Also, check your damn spelling. =/
Adell_Sparda (on 30 December 2010)
Well made? Beat the main stoyline and laught
Buzzi (on 30 December 2010)
EMEEA sucks as always, I'm 10 hours in it and its a very well made game.
morenoingrato (on 30 December 2010)
ouch those are really sad sales :-(
Naum (on 27 December 2010)
FINALLY a real old school RPG with turnbased battlesystem... took long enough
AkiraGr (on 27 December 2010)
Excellent game from the creators of Shining series. I loved the first two on the GBA, I even bought a GBA player for my GameCube for the Second game.Damn Europe, as one fellow gamer said, so some love to this franchise it is been a long time since we got another chapter for the series.
arcane_chaos (on 25 December 2010)
damn america is keeping this game afloat

Adell_Sparda (on 21 December 2010)
Is a fact: Europe prefers Dragon Quest IX
nillle (on 17 December 2010)
the first week of emeaa consists basically of one day.
Asriel (on 16 December 2010)
Damn my fellow Europeans for letting this game down!! I pre-ordered it and now it's locked up as Christmas present. Show Golden Sun some love, Europe!
arcane_chaos (on 15 December 2010)
seems america had the best week! and ouch at the sales in emeaa...hopefully this game will have legs!!!
xcot (on 13 December 2010)
I'm disappointed by emeaa first week, but tbh i didn't even know it came out here this week. Will get after the exams
morenoingrato (on 13 December 2010)
ouch emeea fw!!
ermne (on 10 December 2010)
It sell badly
pokeclaudel (on 10 December 2010)
I would buy this but my ds broke and I won't buy another till the 3ds releases
Fededx (on 09 December 2010)
Tough start, hope it's got some really nice legs!
arcane_chaos (on 01 December 2010)

cromeros (on 12 November 2010)
Low sales in Japan... because...long time passed... BUT... I want now in Chile...:)
cromeros (on 06 November 2010)
Only... 48.020... Really???
okr (on 21 October 2010)
My most wanted DS game of the year.
cromeros (on 29 January 2010)
Capcom...???... Really....???? XD
pokeclaudel (on 16 January 2010)
I wonder if you can add your data from GS2?
arcane_chaos (on 13 September 2009)
I've been waiting 6 long years for this!
cromeros (on 09 June 2009)
In Spanish...


ˇPor fin!!!!!... tantos ańos que esperé una continuación de una auténtica joya de Nintendo... siendo honestos... este es la mejor serie de rol propiamente tal que posee Nintendo... Mención Honrosa: Saga Mother...

In English: I can't wait more...
Son1x (on 06 June 2009)
Tsch, I'll have to buy another DS game and borrow DS once again -.-
Cactus (on 05 June 2009)
I'm so hyped for this. Hopefully the title is still working though, they can be more creative than Golden Sun "DS"
Thechalkblock (on 03 June 2009)
First day purchase.
allaboutthegames885 (on 02 June 2009)
Man... This is one of those games that I didn't know I wanted to see until I saw it... Would somebody please tell me the release date for this one? I'm so buying!
Dgc1808 (on 02 June 2009)
