I'm the elder brother here too!! But, sadly, the sibling is a younger sister. Thusly why I have to support my gaming (and coffee) addiction on my own. Of course I never go anywhere so the true advantage of the gba there is lessened. So it would be just like a reincarnation of the snes to me. My favouritest console system!
The romance of squinting at a display the size of my thumbnail? Mmmm, no ... it doesn't quite have that ... the appeal of the gba to me is its portability even though I never go anywhere. Otherwise I'd just emulate everything since it'll look and sound better there.
It's good as far as a portable game goes. But if it had been released on the N64, I highly doubt it would have gotten as much acclaim. I still think a lot of its popularity has to do with Climax and not the game itself.
the games not bad. i believe most of the hype is due to it being the first "real" rpg for the gba. in my opinion, it was done pretty well. it has some nice 3d effects such as when entering battle and the summon spells. i would have been really impressed with this game if it was on a snes.
i personally liked a lot of snes titles and still do. its a refreshing visit back to that style of gaming, and i enjoy playing it on my gba.
It was alright, nowhere near as good as some of the SNES rpg legends but still good. Now that BoFA just came out, oh yeah, now there's an rpg, and BoFAII is coming here as well, mwahahah...golden what? BTW Magical vacation is awesome, can't wait for the english version, then there's EXE2 and MMZ...2 good megaman games...oh yes...*trails off*
