Fun tool, but make sure you know what you're getting.

Summary: First off, let me reiterate the obvious: this isn't a game. It's a tool for composing tunes...so if you're not looking to compose songs on the go, there really isn't much here for you to enjoy. Chances are, if you're really going to get the most out of Pocket Music, you fit one of these two categories: (a) You want to have a fun little tool to make some music for fun with, knowing full well that the songs never leave your GBA.
Summary: Its sound quality is bad, but that's not my point. I'm a music producer. If I'm sitting in a train, I get bored easily and I want to compose stuff. So I grab Pocket Music Advance and 'sketch' some melodies. (Riffs) Back home, I view the riffs and put 'em into Cubase, using a professional synth. It's a very nice sketchpad -nothing more (professionaly)- but that's all I need.
Summary: I was waiting quite a while for this release and when I finally bought this cartridge I was not amused at the quality at all... Something that is sold as music making software should be as recordable friendly as possible. Afterall, if you've spent a lot of time (and on this software you'll need to) composing a track it's nice to take it off the gameboy and place it on minidisc or Compact Disc. The levels are all wrong.
Summary: This game has good game play and is suitable for all ages it is a game where you can play it again and again because you can make a different songs every time it,s ok and i recomend it throughly.
