After what feels like years of leaks and rumors, the day is finally here – Nintendo has officially added Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games to their Nintendo Switch Online subscription service. We’re going to be looking at all of the Game Boy games added this week in the coming days, but first it’s time for the Game Boy Advance. If you’re an Expansion Pack member, then you have access to six classic GBA games, including Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Kuru Kuru Kururin, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames, Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 and The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. That’s a cool line-up, but are any of these games actually worth playing? To answer that question, I flipped through the pages of Electronic Gaming Monthly, GBA World, Game Informer and more classic magazines to see what the critics said when these games first came out. I sure hope you’re sitting next to a lamp, because this is a Game Boy Advance centric episode of the Nintendo Switch Online Review Crew.
