Summary: It doesn't mention anywhere that this is Version 1.2, and that you CANNOT add codes beyond what is preloaded on the disk. Having experience with AR for Nintendo DS, I was expecting to be able to add codes or at least have some codes present for the game which I intended to use this (Phantasy Star Online). It does work, and for most games will be all you need. Just wish this point was mentioned somewhere before purchasing.
Summary: I Recently ordered a code disk for the game cube it works great now I can finally beat the hard bosses in the Metroid Prime games part one and two which is so very awsome but very hard too for me I do recamend others to order this disk if need to anyways I love this code disk very much and I will always take very good care of it as well as my other games.
if your game freeves its or your data is lost it's your falt

Summary: to provent memory loss in the memory cards dont put the memory card in with the action replay if the guy who rated this a 1 star knew that he would probaly say a 4 star because i have a action replay and it always works
Excerpt: Datel seems to have intentionally crippled the manual code input feature, it was a lot of fun to see some of the unexpected effects of codes you entered yourself. Now youre stuck with what they decide to provide you with (if anything). Consider that previous versions allowed additions of codes and youll see that youre paying exactly the same money for a product that Datel has devalued. Seriously think about it before purchasing this device.
Excerpt: This package is a decent cheat system. where you have preloaded (on the disc) cheats for almost everygame. A lot of people think that if you have to cheat at a game then there is no point in trying to play it. But when you got Multi-player games that you have to unlock certain content and you just wanna have a few laughs with your mates as soon as possible what do you do? You use this system to make them available. Not only that, but it has the ability to be updated.
Excerpt: This is what we have all been waiting for!! The ACTION REPLAY system works by temporarily altering the input output signal reader (i read it somewhere, sounds true) and enables cheats designed unoficially by the ACTION REPLAY designers. Also included is the FREELOADER system which enables you to safely play foreign games on your Gamecube system. The best cheats system i have ever seen.
Conclusion: Action Replay is the best source for cheats, not available anywhere else. Infinint lives, weapons, all trophies, anything you need... Action Replay has got it! and if it doesnt you can simply ask for a code to be made!
