This is a page for the trolls and flamers inside all of us. This page is completely devoted to things that were wrong with THIS game. Put all your fancy ideas for the next game in the Golden Sun Four section.

As for why I made this: I guess I just want to see peoples opinions on a subject of my choosing.

Why do I get the feeling that, because I just said that, This page is going to get about as much respect as I did on the "The Game" page in Aquarius?

If I had to name some of mine I guess they would be:

1. The Disjointed plot: so, The Broken Seal was pretty straight forward. Bad Guys Take Power, Your Fault, you go stop them.
Lost Age: your "Friends" are jerks, you gotta go save the world, even though they think you're pure evil.
This Game: Your best friend is like the fanon version of Garet, we're kicking you out of the house to clean up his mess, Weird vortexes that you don't hear about again until the End of the game, Random bad guys, pointless doomsday machine, Save world?

2. Cutscenes. Why must everyone say something? I swear, it's like this:

Blados: Blah Blah, Hollow threat Blah!

Tyrell: Blah Blah anger Blah Blah!!

Chalis: Blah Blah, You suck, but I'm saying it in a seductive fashion Blah Blah

Karis: Blah Blah Question Blah?

Himi: Blah Blah pointless Blah

Matthew: Blah Blah Blah? :04:

3. The Characters. I don't hate all of them, Amiti and Sveta I especially like, but others, like Tyrell, Karis, and Rief: don't get me started, this is long enough.


So yeah, there's that. Now, despite all those things, I love this game and it's predessecors. Feel free to post!

The only thing that really made me angry about this game has to do with the plot. You play as the kids of the previous games' heroes, who are basically clones of their parents both in the story and in battle. There's constant reminders of what happened in the old games, including characters and places that you don't get to see again. They talk about events that happened 30 years ago as in-detail as if they happened yesterday. The optional bosses were re-used from the old games, even though they're supposedly already defeated. Most of the monsters are re-used as well. Isaac is a total Mary Sue-type character, having no visible character flaws.

In summation, the entire game is centered around the success of the first two games (especially the first one), as if Camelot is stroking their ego the entire way through, instead of having the new characters win the glory they clearly earned.

I could rant all day about other things they messed up on, but they didn't really make me nearly as annoyed as the above.

Very good points, and I agree whole-heartedly. I'm not being mean, but I'm surprised you actually posted seriously.

Oh yeah, another thing that made me mad about DD was the fact that the overworld is way too tiny. There's literally no sense of exploration...

I know right! Plus, they were a lot smaller. Most of them only take about 15 minutes to get through...

On a related note(Get it?), the treasure chest with the note in it near the beginning of that place, I think that was written by Alex after he got the Luna Mask while he was in Ayuthay doing one only knows what with Amiti's Mother.
