Great new handheld

Mar 21, 2007

Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:Screen Light, Rechargable battery, lightweight

Cons:Size of device

The Bottom Line: A great little invention to keep you busy in down time.


After several years of playing tetris on my old Game Boy hand held console my husband decided to upgrade me to the Game Boy Advance. I was very excited with this new gift.

The thing I love the most about this hand held is that built in battery. I could never see the screen on my old Game Boy without attaching a additional light (which was costly, not to mention heavy to hold, and ate batteries up fast). Now the light isn't needed because of the new screen features.

The second thing I love about this hand held is the rechargable built in battery. No need to carry around extra double AA's in my pocket. The battery life on this rechargable battery is also very impressive. I have played for several weeks before needing to charge back up.

One negative I can list is the size. I assume this would be a positive for some, but for adults I think the device is a little too small. My hands cramp up after a while. I like the old handheld because it was wider, allow my hand to spread out a little more while playing the game.

I also have branched out and purchased more games since getting this new Game Boy. I love that there is a large variety of types of games out there.

I would recommend anyone who like video games to get this console, unless you have large hands, then I would recommend testing it out prior to purchasing.
