The Game Boy has really become more technologically advanced since I received the original one with black and white graphics for my birthday in 1989. Now, 13 years later, I bought a Game Boy Advance, and am really impressed by the great 32-bit color graphics, which are very sharp and clear. The game music is great and a pleasure to listen to as well. I guess the only downfall of the system, which has been repeated in public reviews many times, is the difficulty seeing the screen without good lighting. I’ve found that sitting on my couch next to a bright lamp, and tilting the screen a bit, solves the glare problem. Overall, I would give this system a 4.5 out of 5 stars, which seems fair enough to me to round up to 5 out of 5 stars.
Came as described and was delivered fast
man! i would of never had tony hawk 2 if this hadnt come out so get it!
What is the best selling and fastest selling video game machine ever? PS2?…nope, Xbox?…hardly, that’s right it is theGAME BOY!It is so popular in fact, the Game Boy Advance has sold over 1 million units in 10 days so far during this holiday season. All Nintendo-made products have been of high-quality and well designed. This is especially true for the GBA.The GBA has a 32-bit processor, just like the Playstation (the Game Boy Color had only an 8-bit processor). It has very good screen quality. In fact, the image resolution on the Game Boy Advance’s screen is greater than that of some HDTV’s. The Game Boy Advance has incredible sound and the speakers can play louder. The sound is even better with headphones. A nice added touch is the power light–It is green with new batteries, but turns red when there is 20-30% battery left and the light slowly fades out.The GBA is able to connect to the Nintendo Gamecube through a special link cable available separately. You can also purchase an e-reader for Game Boy Advance that allows you to scan in paper cards that let you play classic NES games. Another exciting recent development is the annoucement of an accessory that plugs into the expansion port of your Gamecube and allows you to play GBA games on your TV. However, this product I believe won’t be available until around March or so of next year.All these improvements are very helpful and amazingly have virtually no effect on the size. The GBA still fits easily in your pocket.
Great product works perfectly
took long but now that I have it im very pleased thanks
I love it!! Didn’t come with a battery cover which the shop advised and it’s still one of my best purchases!
very great product as this product was exactly explained in the item being purchased thanks so much great shop indeed
The GBA is the newest wave in handheld video games, and a sound investment for those who love the old SNES games and the ability to take them anywhere with you. It also comes in verious colors, but I prefer the Glacier.As most others already mentioned, the display is not backlit. But either my eyes are exceptional, or other people’s are really bad, but I can see the games crystal clear. It is a trade off, not having a backlit screen means that your batteries go further. Anyone who remembers the Game Gear from Sega surely can remember how it gobbled batteries up like mad. Given a choice, I would rather go with the non-backlit screen. The old Gameboy and Gameboy color did fine without backlit screens, so the GBA doesn’t suffer by not having one.The best thing about the GBA is the gameplay. Despite the small size, you get amazing depth to your games. With Super Mario World (a handheld version of the SNES classic), every apect of the original is preserved, and the controls are like second nature. The graphics are 32-bit, but on the small screen, they have the look and feel of 16-bit. This is not a bad thing, mind you, but you can’t expect Playstation quality on a screen less than 5 inches tall and wide. The graphics are impressive enough, but the sound quality blew me away. The music is amazingly audible, and comes through with excellent clarity.With an ever expanding library of games, the GBA is likely to live up to it’s older brother, the Gameboy, and dominate the handheld vide.
Got this for my son for Christmas, even though I’m not a fan of these — the last thing I want is a couch-potato kid spending hours on a chair playing this. But I’ve given in, and my son is happy, although I monitor when and how long he plays. Why I chose the GBA vs the GB Color? Two reasons: it resembles the controllers for the GameCube (and other game system controllers) so there’s familiarity in how to hold it and use it. Also, the GBA takes GB, GB Color, and GB Advance games, so there’s more variety than with just the GB Color. We’ll eventually try to link the GBA to our GameCube, and that may be yet another plus for this little machine. I do find that the screen is kind of dark, even with the light/brightness up, but other than that it’s a great buy.
