''When people talk about classic JRPGs, the usual suspects are mentioned: Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Earth Bound etc. But there’s one brilliant JRPG that set the Game Boy Advance alight: Golden Sun.
Traditional in nearly every sense, Golden Sun was an utter treat. The visuals, the music, the gameplay, the Djinn system–all of it is sheer quality. Sure, the story was a little weak, but this was more than forgivable.
Despite the above, however, Golden Sun has oddly been forgotten by the masses, seen more as a cult hit. It’s a shame the game never truly got the love and attention it deserved, seemingly trapped in the shadow of more popular JRPG franchises.''
