Screenshots of this game look absolutely incredible and it's hard to believe the humble GBA can cope with graphics of this level of detail - nearly PS1 graphics.

This thing is great. The actual installation took under two minutes. I've got a selection of about 25 GBA, GBC and original Game Boy games, and all of them work perfectly.
In most cases, playing GBA games on a GameCube is far better than on a GBA. The games play exactly the same, yet look fantastic on a TV. I can pick up graphical detail that I just couldn't make out on a GBA screen. But there are several things you should be aware of...
(1) Using the GameCube's control pad. Theoretically you can use either the analog or digital pads on the GC controller, but as you will also be using the L button, the D-Pad is not really accessible unless you have huge thumbs.
