Review: Advance Guardian Heroes – GBA

Advance Guardian Heroes brings back the original Saturn game’s style of gameplay, but its unbelievably irritating technical problems and underwhelming art style doesn’t bring back the magic fans might be expecting. Graphics/Presentation: 5 When you first start up Advance Guardian Heroes, you can tell right away that this isn’t going to be as good as […]

Review: Bubble Bobble Old & New – Gameboy Advance

Both the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS are getting their “new versions” of Bubble Bobble (Evolution and Revolution, respectfully), but they aren’t looking too spiffy right now.

Meta-Review: Mario vs Donkey Kong – GBA

I must admit, I was a tad skeptical about this title when it was first announced, but I heard good things about it, played the demo, and then played the full game.

Gunstar Super Heroes Trailer

When I first saw the screens of the new Gunstar Heroes pseudo-sequal for the Gameboy Advance, I was pretty excited, but I honestly thought it looked like a quick port that wouldn’t fully utilize the GBA’s power.
