    GAME BOY micro "mini" Review
    Official GBATemp Review
    [​IMG]

    The GB micro is an exceptional gaming system which was missing from the GBATemp official review lineup. I am proud to present an official “mini” review of the system itself. Take a brief moment to read through the review and my impressions of the unit itself.

    Its too bad the micro was released too late to be successful, its a very good system.

    I actually owned one of these for a very long time, and I have to say it was a great experience using it.
    The only real fault I found with it was that the faceplates weren't incredibly strong, and that the adapter meant that I couldn't use the wireless-multiplayer adapter.

    Good work with the review.

    Bit sad the GB/GBC games aren't supported, else I would have this baby.
    Looks awesome though, but I'm happy enough with my GBA [​IMG]

    As always, nice review! [​IMG]

    I never owned a GB Micro, out of fear that it would be bad. No one I knew bought one, so naturally I assumed it wasn't a good choice to spend my money on it. But now, after reading more on it, I regret making that choice.

    the system is nice but annoys me when it comes to trade pokemans in GBA carts.
    you either need to get the link cable converter or the micro wireless adapter to trade.
    nonetheless,
    sometimes used it to play super street fighterII:turbo revival on the go.

    It would have been much nicer if they put a bigger screen into the same form factor.

    Wow, this review was late in coming. I've got the 20th Anniversy Micro (North American release of the Famicom-styled model), and I have to admit it's probably the most attractive device Nintendo has ever released. I only have it as a collectible, though, not to play. It's a gorgeous unit.

    I bought one when my SP broke and I love it. I still use it with my F2A Ultra cart.

    I love my micro I was playing it earlier before seeing this review. It is my favouritist console, more than the 360, ps3, wii or any of the handhelds that I own. I'd like a 2nd one at some point just for when I've worn this one out... Micro!

    AND YOU CAN ALMOST SEE MARIO!!

    Nice review. when i wanted one my dad said "You already have a SP. and since you are clumsy. you sp has more protection"

    he was right. but whatever

    You made is sound like you just bought it. when it came out long ago.
