Excerpt: "Back in 2002, Sonic Advance was not only the first Sonic game to ever appear on a Nintendo console, it was also a welcome return to the blue hedgehog's 2D platforming roots. Sonic had been meandering around in 3D adventure games for too long, so it was nice to see him going back to what had made him famous. Available exclusively for the Gameboy Advance (GBA), it was promised as a brand new slice of platforming action, the evolution of earlier classics ...
Pros: No real challenge, looks a bit ugly, won't last long
Cons: Good characters, quite cheap, good for a quick fix

Summary: I find the sonic on sega better than this. On this there is 4 characters sonic, tails, amy rose and Knuckles. The levels are quite easy to start off with but towards the end i have only managed to get through all the stages with Tails. this is because in the water levels you can just fly out of the water but all the other characters drown- even sonic. the extras on this are quite good with time trials and a chao garden.
Summary: Having been a massive fan of Sonic for years now i was extremely disappointed with this version on the GBA. Although the graphics are great the speed of the game is absolutely ridiculous. You spend most of the time whirling around the screen with no idea what is happening. This was never the case on the Sega game. If i had known this at the time of buying i would never have purchased it.
Summary: I am a huge Sonic fan and so was disappointed when I received this game with my new GBA. It is flat and even boring, althought there are good graphics but no excitment. The look and style is the same as the original, but it is not exciting or at all difficult and I finished it relatively quickly. I was very disappointed and had expected more and an evolution of the game, but I shall await Sonic Heroes to see if they have redeemed themselves!
Summary: I bought the game as it was being touted as usable with the Gamecube. Use as an extra controller? Nope. Not even in the Sonic game on the Cube. What did it do? You get a horrible little tamagotchi sub game that just allows you to upload the thing (and coins) to your cube game. That end of it sucks big time. The rest of the game is cute and typical sonic but I wasn't overly impressed with it. The character seemed to take up too much of the screen for my liking.
