HMV Game Boy Advance bargains
HMV has some excellent offers on a couple Game Boy Advance games. And not just pansy film tie-in ports. These are actual good quality and critically well received games at a criminally insane price of £10 each, delivered to your UK address.
For your tenner you can get one of these games:
Final Fantasy IV Advance (Square- Enix)
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (AlphaDream/Nintendo)
Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones (Intelligent Systems/Nintendo)
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (Square-Enix)
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (Jupiter/Square-Enix)
Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Brothers 3 (Nintendo)
Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls (Square-Enix)
Metroid Zero Mission (Nintendo)
Mario Vs Donkey Kong (NST/Nintendo)
Golden Sun (Camelot/Nintendo)
Last I checked most of these still retail for full price. In fact just last week I saw Final Fantasy IV Advance selling for £35 at their brick store. Seven of those games listed are RPG titles, so if you are a RPG nut like I am and haven't played any of those you should probably check them out before the titles are sold out.
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories has a high production value but it is merely a retelling of the storyline presented in the PS2 game. Plus the battle system suck. Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is the prequel to the excellent DS follow-up Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones and Final Fantasy Tactics are both strategy RPG. If you haven't played a Fire Emblem game, the gameplay is similar to the excellent Disgaea series on the PS2 and Advance Wars (developed by the same people).
Personally I recommend getting Final Fantasy IV Advance, Golden Sun, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones.
