5.0 out of 5 stars you need this,
This review is from: GBA to GameCube Link Lead (Video Game)if you have game boy advance just sitting there while you play your new gamecube buy this link lead and you can use your GBA as a controller for the gamecube! If you have Super Smash Bros. Melee for your gamecube while you play your players attacks are on the GBA screen to help and if you have Star Fox Adventures while you play with your GBA as a controller your map of the level is on your GBA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great if you find a game that uses it well!,
This review is from: GBA to GameCube Link Lead (Video Game)GBA-GC connectivity has hardly been Nintendo's most popular idea, but finding games that use it well is well worth it.
Some games like Zelda Wind Waker/Four Swords and Splinter Cell use it without you needing a GBA game or some use it only when you connect the GBA game to the GC game.
These usually are the ones that aren't as good, because it usually just unlocks bonus content (although sometimes good-Metroid Prime connected to Metroid Fusion gives you the NES Metroid on the GC game). It's usually not worth buying the GBA game for the extra content unless you are a big fan (Pokemon is a bit of an exception though- the GBA games really do make Colosseum better as you can play multiplayer).
Here are the games that use the cable and what connecting does (all are without GBA game unless it says otherwise):
Animal Crossing: very good, access island and play NES games on GBA as opposed to TV, also you can design patterns on the move. View island on GBA while you are not playing the main game.
Zelda 4 Swords Adventures: The best use of it, no GBA game required, but 2-4 GBA's necessary for multiplayer.
Metroid Prime/Fusion: Unlock NES Metroid on GC, and also a new suit for Samus (the one she wears in Fusion). Nothing for GBA game though.
Splinter Cell: gives you a radar on GBA and a Sticky bomb weapon. New levels on GBA game if you connect that.
Zelda WW: Maps, mini games, help on dungeons, hidden statues to find in each dungeon. See Tingle's friends on WW.
WarioWare inc: Just acts as an extra controller.
Final Fantasy CC: Needed on multiplayer so everyone can play without disturbing everyone to change weapon etc.
Pac Man VS: Person who is pac man gets the GBA and can see the whole area on it, while the ghost players can only see a small area on the TV.
Pokemon Colosseum with GBA game: Update berry program (fixes a glitch that would othewise stop berrys growing after a year or something) and upload/download your GBA/GC team and battle friends.
Pokemon Channel: Update berry program and unlock Jirachi for your GBA game too (it's basically the "Mew" of Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire).
That's all I can think of! If you own a GBA and GC and know friends that own GBA's too, then I can recommend investing in 4 Swords and a few cables!

Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GBA to GameCube Link Lead (Video Game)Another review from myself. It was with some trepidation that I purchased this, considering the price. However, my experience so far has been phenomenal. I ordered it midday on Monday, and it was dispatched Tuesday and arrived very early on Wednesday. I let my GBA batteries charge for a while, then tried out Sonic Advance (GBA) with Sonic Adventure 2 (Gamecube). I was able to transfer my brother's egg, Chao and rings over. Not yet at a stage in either of the Pokemon Gamecube games where I can test it out, but so far this appears to be working brilliantly. I can highly recommend this, especially considering the rather intimidating price of the official Nintendo brand one. So far, it has worked brilliantly. Whilst it does not come with instructions, it is simple enough to use. You get one end of the cable shaped like a Gamecube Controller plug-in thingy-ma-bob (professional reviewer right here folks), and the other half plugs into the Gameboy Advance. Make sure you push the Gamecube side in nice and firm. Do all that, and Bob's your uncle. I can highly recommend this product.
