    The beautiful rendering of the cars, the colorful tracks, and the responsive controls all come together in one cool, portable package.

    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.

    Look, THQ, this password system is extremely inconvenient.
  5. Had the GT Advance utilized the battery backed password system, I certainly would have scored this game MUCH higher. But given the exquisite graphics, challenging races, fun tune–ups, the game itself MAY be worth the hassle.
  6. 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.
  7. 80
    Despite the dents, GT Advance is a solid early contender in the handheld racing championship—just be sure to drive with the lights on.
