Any friends hearing i'm buying a new gameboy for nostalgic purposes thought i was buying too much on impulse, i already had an old gameboy advance -- yes, it was an impulse buy but not unwise.

Its fairly hard to judge from an internet picture, but once i got it i was relieved to find it was not a soft pink (which i have many critisms for) but just right. The face plates idea is genius, the dreaded feeling when you scatch your screen is gone for you can buy a new one.

The screen is great quality, and has made me enjoy game much more.

The only setbacks is its big incompatiablity with many things the old one was. For instance older games (though i knew that before i got it) and link cables etc.

But this is barely a setback considering i won't have to carry around a big one while getting as close to the window seat on trains as possible due to no backlight. Hoorah!

Very thoughtful of Nintendo to produce a pink GBA micro straight from the off for us girlies. The colour is beautiful, but more of a forceful metallic pink rather than a tame rose, and the whole unit has a feeling of solidity and weight about it. Nevertheless it is tiny and will easily fit into your coat or even your jeans pocket. I bought mine for commuting and together with my MP3 it is the ideal commuting gaget. The screen is beautiful and although small its illumination is such that you get all the visual detail you require. And what can I say about the price? Ladies (and those gentlemen with a penchant for pink), this is a bargain.

So after searching EVERYWHERE for a cheap priced Mirco, I found one on here for £20 with charger.
Everything about it is tiny, even the screen but it so clear that you dont have to squint your eyes, everything is so clear and bright and looks better, Super Mario World is amazing on it. The sound is brilliant on it but I use earphones all the time with it.

It is small and I think is for bursts of play but I have played for 4/5 hours straight on it and it does start to hurt your hand but sure thats grand :-)

I have it for life as I dont think I would ever get rid of it.
Only prob with it is that Nintendo sadly took out the GB/C backwards compatability out of it.

Good Bits
Its feel of handling is comfortable and good. Inferface and software is most definitely user friendly - what you would expect from nintendo anyway. The quality of graphics are advanced keeping in mind the size of console itself. Its vesitile nature i.e. pocket size character is convienient to take anywhere.

Bad Bits
Size of screen is a major put off. You might think it is good value for money which no doubt it is...but definitely don't take lightly the size of the screen. For kids who have to wear glasses make sure they don't play this without their glasses. Such a miniscule size makes you hunt for the detail in the graphics - even though the details are present because of the good graphics. So a big let down due to size of screen, nevertheless if the size was abit bigger this could have been a great games machine.

For £21, if you're just gonna' play single-player games, or use the MP3 player, this system will do you, however if you want to do multiplayer, you're gonna' have to spend about the same ammount again to get the necessary cables, and the same yet again for the wireless converter, as for GC/GBA games such as Final Fantasy, you won't be able to use it as a controller for the game, apparantly Nintendo couldn't spare the extra 2mm and give us a regular port.

This would bring the total cost up to over £30, which you might as well put towards a DS.

Lack of ease to connect with multiplayer, and no cross-console connectivity make this a multiplayers bane, and is a waste of £21 if multiplayer is your intent, (as a spare GBA, the price is quite good for me).

Avoid like the plague, save up a few extra pennies, and get a DS, it doesn't offer GBA multiplayer either, but it has the full range of DS games, and other features such as PictoChat and the Opera 8.5 browser.
