  • Review Score:6.4

    This game is disapointing and I loved GTA2

    I bought it anyway despite bad reviews because it had about the same reviews as GTA2 which I thought was fun. The main problems with this game is the slow framerate and fighting. Fighting is...really bad. I swear I'll be... Read Full Review

    Easily one of the best games on the Game Boy Advance.

    Grand Theft Auto is a breath of fresh air, and is easily one of my favorite titles for the handheld. It's nothing like it's PS2 counterparts, but it's still one hell of a game! You'll go on missions, cruise around town, ... Read Full Review

    The name says it all, it's GTA 1 and 2 in advanced way, fine game but no fireworks I'm sorry

    Ahh GTA is back in 2D was the first thing that came to my head when I heard that GTA Advance was going to be released. I didn't own GameBoy Advance when the game was released so I just sat down and thought about how the ... Read Full Review

    A good game idea shrinked into a portable console.

    Well, if you think of it, the concept of walking around a city and hitting every thing you can is not the kind of thing you would port to a portable, but they did a good job porting the idea. The GTA advance looks mor... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto Advance is just not that good. It really let me down when I bought it.

    Grand Theft Auto Advance is just simply said as "repetetive". It's basically the same as Grand Theft Auto 3, but worse. The graphics are pretty bad, for it goes back to the overhead view, which made many people not like ... Read Full Review

    GTA in your pocket, great for a handheld game, but not as addictive as it's big brothers.

    The first ever GTA game on GBA and is it good? Yes, to certain extent.

    Grand Theft Auto Advance came up in quite an annoying manner because all the GTA fans were eagerly awaiting for San Andreas. However GTA dvance is certainly not as disappointing as the GTA 1 and 2. It has first of all g... Read Full Review

    A somewhat good game

    The GBA version of Grand Theft Auto doesn't even come close to how good and awesome the other versions are. But I would say that that game is somewhat good, and has what any grand theft auto game should have. The gamepla... Read Full Review

    This is a pretty sweet game!!!

    GTA has finally came to the Game Boy Advance. What could be more better than a portable GTA game? This may sound very exciting but not really. I'm not saying that this is a bad but it could use a little improvement. Lik... Read Full Review
