Post Game Boy Advance

I just picked up mine and let me tell you, I was exspecting something pretty cool but this thing blew me away! I got thps2 and fx zero for it and both games are great. Especially thps2. It's not a side scroller like the gb version and the levels are very much like the pc versions. Both of the games I got look better then snes games and the colors are amazing.

GBA also can double for controllers for Gamecube.

Game quality: 9

Design: 9.5

Colors: 9.9

Game size: 9.2

The only complaint I have right now is that you need direct light to see the screen. And that my hands are way to big to hold it correctly but that's not their fault.

GBA can't act as a Gamecube controller. There is compatibility features between the two, but it's not a controller.

Example for compatibility (just assumptions):
Perfect Dark 2 for GC could use GBA compatibility to make the radar show up on the GBA screen instead of clogging up the split screen in multiplayer games.

Think of it as the VMU for the Gamecube, without the save/load feature.

But it says right on the box,
Quote:
On specially designed games, Game Boy Advance can be connected directly to the Nintendo GameCube for use as an additional screen and controller.
It even has a picture of it being used as the controller.

Sherack Nhar, where have you been? I've seen this brought up in articles plenty of times, and Nintendo wouldn't exactly put that thing on the box if it wasn't true.

(That is a good idea with Perfect Dark, though. )

Yep, I'll pick up a GBA as soon as possible. The thing looks amazing.

Can't wait for a Zelda GBA!

It does both. Special features(radar) and can function as a controller, according to nintendo power magazine.
