    The beautiful rendering of the cars, the colorful tracks, and the responsive controls all come together in one cool, portable package.
  2. A great-looking and playing racer with one major drawback: a tedious password save system. [Feb 2003, p.97]
  3. It's true that the sixteen character password is annoying, but it's a great game nonetheless. The mixture of great graphics and gameplay make this game very enjoyable.

    Despite the dents, GT Advance is a solid early contender in the handheld racing championship—just be sure to drive with the lights on.
  5. The A.I. in the game varies and can either be a push over or incredibly hard. The races will be very close if you are in the top position.
  6. It's really a shame that THQ opted to adopt a password feature instead of the battery-save option, because it has added a lot of hassle to what would otherwise be a very fun game.
  7. There's one huge caveat to our recommendations. THQ, in a cost-cutting move sure to infuriate people everywhere, have removed the battery memory back-up and implemented a password system instead.

    So much fun. I played it until i beat it and then i played all of the unlocked stuff and then i did it all again with a manual transmission. Huge replayability makes this the best realistic gba racing game. Expand
