    This a good GBA game, it lets you take the mayhem of GTA with you. It mocks the original GTA2fairly well, expect you cant go on roofs, the different gangs aren't marked clearly, and it seems as though it lost alot of passion, but it still has alittle bit of the magic, after all, they are having to cut stuff so it's on GBA. I would recommend getting it if you liked the original This a good GBA game, it lets you take the mayhem of GTA with you.

I would recommend getting it if you liked the original GTA2, but do not get it thinking it's a subsitute. Don't get me wrong, the City is huge, expecially for a GBA game, and there can be alot of action going on at once. I recommend this for GTA Vets. Expand

    Not on a great game, but you got to admit its fun to go on rampage. GBA was one of my first systems except for sega and nitendo, and it was fun. The driving and the Timed Missions got me mad but in all it was kind of fun.**Especially fun to Rampage with the Flamethrower while driving the tank, ohh ya, that was fun**

    Wow, can't believe the harsh comments! Sure this game isn't GTAIII or Vice City, but it's on a systematic equilvalent to a Super Nintendo! Personally, i was quite impressed with how they managed to bring the world, colourful characters and story elements of GTA III to the GBA. It's rare for me to play thru a game all the way, but this one was quite enjoyable, once you Wow, can't believe the harsh comments!

    GTA Advance es una especie de precuela spin-off del grandioso GTA3. acá complementamos la historia vivida en aquel juego. volvemos a Liberty City. volvemos a las calles, a la traición, al amor, al odio y sobretodo a la venganza. excelente juego al estilo clásico (con vista isometrica en 2D) para nuestra portátil de nintendo.

    Plot: good for GBA with a REALLY GOOD twist near the end
    Gameplay: Great as even it would hold up as a

  1. It's just not the Grand Theft Auto experience most people will be gunning for, and certainly not for this price, not a chance in hell.
  2. The missions, characters, expansive city environment, sound and graphics all pull together to create an enjoyable experience. The game is, however, filled with minor flaws, and the camera causes frustration. With a weak story and minor technical faults Grand Theft Auto Advance was never going to be more than just a fun game.

    If the story had a bit more humour, if the gameplay wasn't so jerky and the action so hard to control, if the graphics had a little extra polish on them and if the sound wasn't so bad, it may have been a great port.
