First GTA: Advance Reviews & Trailer

Top Down GTA - General News | @ 04:56 PM MDT | By Neil
Gamespot and IGN recently took the time to review today's other big title - Grand Theft Auto for Game Boy Advance. Unfortnately, Gamespot gave the game a low 6.5/10, with IGN being a little more supportive with their 8.5/10 rating.
"There's some nostalgic gameplay here, but by and large GTA Advance just isn't much fun."
-- Gamespot

"The portable rendition retains much of what has made the series, starting with Grand Theft Auto III such a success on the PlayStation 2, and it's clear that Digital Eclipse understood the idea of the series...even in its 2D design. It's definitely one the most ambitious games created on the Game Boy Advance."
-- IGN

The first trailer of the game has also been released by Rockstar. You can grab it from the link below.

Well it really was in the shadow of San Andreas, if anything the game boy advance version should have been released first, before its heavyweight counterpart!

Gamespot give really harsh ratings to games in comparison with ign.

Whether or not the gba version deserved 8.5 or 6.5 i don't really know... but one thing is for certain, san andreas deserved a 10... ign still gave it a 9.9 but ten looks better on paper.
