  1. A delightful little game with solid graphical elements and difficulty levels that will challenge most players.

  3. This is definitely one to stop the E.T. obsessed kids screaming, but no game for a grown up.

    For older gamers, E.T. offers little to phone home about. [May 2002, p.142]

    Far too difficult and unforgiving, and feels like another titled rushed to meet its deadline.

    This game has no difficult but impossible. The point of the game is smash your Game-boy Advance to pieces. The graphics are terrible and look grotesquely ugly and the controls are frustrating. The 4 positive critics are really gone out of there minds. Expand

    Let me just start with the history of this game.You've all heard of the Atari 2600? Well, when it was released for it, it brought... 1. The fall of the Atari 2600. 2. More copies than actual consoles of Atari 2600 sold. 3. Left 500,000,0 copies of E.T unsold by the company. This lead to the company forking over more cash to buy a piece of New Mexico Desert land, and buried the unsold copies in their little land, leaving it to rot. In conclusion, take no notice of this game, even in Gba, because you might be going to dig it up. Expand
