Game Boy Advance All In One Link Cable
one great piece of hardware...
This cable allows connection between two Game Boy Advances, or a Game Boy Advance to a Gamecube. I loved having this when I still had a Game Boy Advance and a compatible game. The cable enables multiplayer between two Game Boys, for which there are a slew of multiplayer games for. But it also can connect a GBA to a Gamecube for multiplayer, or data transfer, as long as you have the Gamecube Game, and the GBA game that it was made to be compatible with. Some games I enjoyed were "Pacman Vs." where 1 player is Pacman on the Game Boy while the other 3 are ghosts using Gamecube controllers. more notable uses for the cable are the "Sonic Adventure" games, where you can send cute creatures called "Chao" between the GC and GBA as you take care of them. A few more games that use the link include Rayman 3 and it's GBA version, Mario Golf: Toadstool tour and Mario Golf: Advance tour, and if you have the Game Boy Player, you can plug a Game Boy in and use it as a controller! I think overall, this item is a great buy!
Best cable for your money
I just recently bought this cable so I could enjoy the advantage of hooking my GBA to my Gamecube. To my amazement this product really works well. I've dealt with cheaply made link cables that break in no time at all but this is solid and it doesn't get as easily tangled as other ones. The price is also really great, I mean 5 bucks for a product that does this? I saw it and I was like got to have it. The part that connects to the GBA can be a little tricky, mostly because it's so small, so take your time and you'll be connected in no time. The packaging that it comes in and everything else that's now sold in the United States (The plastic pockets of doom) Are annoying. So if anyone is getting this for their children I would recommend you the parent to cut it open! All in all this is a fabulous product that not only looks good but performs better than what you think. I will recommend this product to anyone looking to score a nice All-In-One Cable for their GBA and Gamecube.
wondefull yet breakable
I bought one of these and I used it but I accidently shoved the gba cable to hard and it sstoped working. But it was fun while it lasted. I think it is a wonderfull product unless your like me and easily break stuff. I used it to trade pokemon and it worked fine and it also worked with my gamecube on Splitercell 3. Overall, this product was not a waste of money. I recomend anyone who has a sp and/ or gamecube buy this because you wont be sorry. I definatly was not. Since my parents say I could tear up a steel ball , it was not the quality of the product that was bad it was my effinity to tear stuff up. Futhermore nintendo is a wonderfull company and I trust them for all my gaming needs. again, buy this product because its better to buy an all-in-1 cable then a gameboy to gameboy AND a gameboy- gamecube.
It is very well designed
The GBA Link can be very useful when it comes to hooking up the two consoles, and it has lasted me 3 years and counting. It is smartly designed and can last a very long time. Good job Pelican.
Good for GBA but not so well with Gamecube
I was glad to get this so cheap and surprised that Gamestop was still in stock. One down size that I have with this is that I was not able to use my GBA as a radar for my Megaman X Command Mission game. I plugged one of the GBA sockets into the GBA and GC socket into my system as instructed. Ran it as I sure to use it and didn't connect to the GBA. I think the extra GBA port made the system confused or something because it tells me that it wasn't able to connect. Its get for trading like Pokemon with but not so well with working from GBA to GC.
This cable was the most helpful acsesory ever!
loved this cable from the first day I used it 8-).
