  1. Cheat Code Central
    The replay value is off the chart. This game alone may be a reason to purchase a GBA. I have played card games on the PC over the years that weren't this comprehensive. I highly advise purchasing Ultimate Card Games. It's an instant classic.

    One of the very few games that can be considered an absolute must-have Game Boy Advance title This incredibly complete game package is brimming with so much replayability, you probably wouldn't even care if someone permanently superglued this cartridge into the slot.
  3. Brimming with features and ease of use, Ultimate Card Games may not be groundbreaking in terms of content, but it is the best cards package ever put together in a video game and should be in any pocket fan’s GBA.
  4. This is probably the best time-killing game to come along since "Wario Ware Inc"; even if you only use half the content on this cartridge, it's well worth the investment for the hours of entertainment it offers.
  5. A pretty compelling GBA cartridge with almost infinite replayability was exactly what the Nintendo handheld needed right now and both Cosmigo and Telegames have come up with the promised goods.
  6. Yes, I found shortcomings and annoyance, but overall it was a lot of fun and easy to pick up. Once new games are learned, you find yourself unable to put it down.
  7. Pocket Games
    Easily the best traditional card game compilation on the GBA. [Summer 2004, p.43]
  8. Nintendo Power
    Contains an impressive collection of popular diversions. [Jan 2004, p.162]
  9. If you find yourself hankering for a simple game of Hearts rather than saving the galaxy for the billionth time, Ultimate Card Games is for you. [Sept 2004, p.118]

    My family plays this game all the time. All four of us can play all the games head2head with only my one game cartridge. How neat is that!

    I bought it over the weekend and have hardly put it down in two days. It is really a great game.
