These lo-fi 3D graphics are a PET PEEVE of mine. The DS can not do them well enough. Didn't like it with Dragon Quest, don't like it in Golden Sun. Thanks to the DS's low resolution, and the even worse texture resolution, any kind of closeup just fails. Not to mention, movement feels strangely imprecise; I'd much rather some good-looking 2D sprites on a grid. Call me old-fashioned but I don't like having to spend ages trying to position myself correctly in order to successfully take a herb from a wooden barrel.
Oh, and it's A HERB, not AN HERB.
Other than that, I'm enjoying it a fair amount.
