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.

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.

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. =)

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.

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!

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.

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.

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? :(

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.
