Great - just don't buy it in the winter...

  • Summary: This game has to get top marks for originality - using an in-built solar panel in the game pack, which measures the amount of sunlight and effects what happens in the game. You did hear me right, by the way. In order for this game to work you will need sunlight. This means you will have to go outside - a foreign place for most gamers. Time to get the sun mat, sunglasses and factor 30 out, because with Boktai you have to have sunlight.

  • Summary: great game although the sunlight is an issue. i just sit under a lamp. you can charge your gun if you site under stong light which is no ordinary light, you need specialised spotlights. if you have them or live in a sunny country (unlike me! i live in england! :S) then your ok!

No sun, no fun.

  • Summary: The game detects UV light. The game also is set to your local location and time and everything in the game factors into this. What does this mean? You play in the daytime and game is easier, if the clouds come out you play at a slight disadvantage, you play at nighttime and the game gets much harder. Also the game plays on a little while your switched off. I captured one vampire, quit the game because I couldn't kill him at night.

Perfect game for summertime

  • Summary: Nintendo really need to advertise more, everyone with a gameboy should own this game. Basically it's a cross between Zelda and Castlevania with a dash of Metal Gear Solid. Nice graphics, easy to get into and so on, but once you add the solar sensor to the mix; it goes from being a good game to being a great game. After only a few minutes it seems like such an obvious and brilliant innovation that you can't help but wonder why no one did it before.

Why has no one heard of this?

  • Summary: This is probably one of the best games that will ever grace the GBA. It has gorgeous graphics and outstanding gameplay all rolled up with a brilliant story line. The idea is so simple, yet Konami have pulled it off brilliantly. You play a young sun child who's job is to negotiate dungeons and traps to reach the vampire, upon reaching which you must re-negotiate the dungeons to your pile driver. The use of the sun works brilliantly.

Boktai review

Andy, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: A nice looking game,with the sunlight meter as an inventive addition, but it really restricts where you play. The amount of times you hold your GBA out of the window seem endless,but it is still a good concept.I gave this 4/5 because it has colourful graphics, is easy to pick up and play and brilliant ideas that all add up to make a 1st class game.Shame about the sunlight meter but in this case, as with many other games, the good points far outweigh the bad ones, and I...

  • Summary: Boktai The Sun is in Your Hand är nog ett av de mest komplexa spelen någonsin till Gameboy Advance. Ibland får vi spelare spel där ett unikt tillskott läggs till i striderna som antingen kan förstöra spelet eller som faktiskt är nödvändigt, i Boktai är det något som faktiskt behövs.Du får ta dig an rollen som pojken Django som är en vampyrjägare och han måste få bort dem helt från jordens yta. Det enda sättet som han kan ta ihjäl dem på är med hjälp av solljus.

  • Summary: Vad som är intressant med Boktai The Sun is in Your Hand är att kassetten har en sensor som kan ta upp solljus.Spelet handlar nämligen om vampyrjägaren Django och för att ta ihjäl sina fiender behöver han just solljus. Sensorn tar upp solljuset och för sedan in det i Djangos vapen och när mätaren är fylld kan han använda vapnet och ta sig an fienderna.Av mig får spelet 4/5.Det är väldigt opraktiskt om man sitter och spelar spelet i en bil mitt i natten eller om man...

Interesante y original

  • Summary: Es la versión PAL española. Entre varios idiomas tiene castellano, aunque la traducción es bastante chapucera. El juego tiene el típico esquema de mazmorras para ir superando una tras otra, pero invita a jugarlas con sigilo más que a matar todo lo que se mueve (aunque puede hacerse). Sin embargo, las capacidades del héroe están muy condicionadas por la disponibilidad de luz solar (el juego tiene un sensor de UV o algo así), así que te obliga a gestionar tanto la reserva...
