    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it. Since I have no friends, this Gameboy really helped me a lot. Ever since I dropped out of school to smoke weed, I've been really lonely so now I can drown my sorrows in games played by Japanese 10-year-olds. I am proud to say that my only real friends are video game people. If I had to say one negative thing about this device, it would be that the battery life is too short, so I have to leave the hole in my basement more often than I would like to. Other than that, it's great. I would totally recommend it to a friend if I had any.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A step up from Gameboy Color This handheld is a step up from the Gameboy Color, although I will admit I still love playing my Gameboy Color. The Advance offers a great selection of games like Super Mario Advance, Spyro Season Of Ice, Crash/Spyro Superpack, etc. The D-pad is pretty solid on this console, although I still feel like the Gameboy Color's D-pad was better in my view. One nice thing the Advance SP has over the original Advance is the back lit screen that makes it capable of playing your games in a dark room or outside at night. This is a must have for any collector or real gamer.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from only worked for first month When I was younger I didn't ever have a Gameboy because by the time I was in about 3rd of 4th grade when I actually started to want some sort of gaming device everyone had a DS so I ended up getting one of those instead. I bought a Gameboy because I was a fan of the pokemon games and wanted to play the older versions. I ordered this Gameboy off of gamestop and when I got it, the top of it had a giant ugly sticker saying gamestop on it. I managed to peel the sticker off, ( the device still had sticky stuff al over it ) and when I peeled it off there was lots of scratch marks on it. The inside of it was nice though and the screen looked perfect. About a month later of it working fine, I realized it wouldn't charge. I ordered both a new charger and battery and it still wouldn't work. I finally just gave up and bought a used gba off amazon and that has been working for a year now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Panasonic Toughbook of Game consoles Nearly ten years ago, my parents purchased this for me because me and just about everybody else complained about the GBA's screen being too dark. So they returned the basic GBA back to Walmart when the GBA SP came out. It still to this date works, though it has been dropped countless times, as well as lost countless times. My DSi's L & R buttons do not work all of the time since I dropped it on those buttons, and dropping it hard on the L or R button killed my DS Lite. My GBA has a dent in the hinge where it fell off a dresser and got jammed under a door. It still works fine. So if you want a durable console, forget the newer ones. I also like that it is smaller than the current consoles. The only drawback that I can think of is its lack of a headphone jack.
