The Next Level (Dec 04, 2002)
Overall this is a very impressive title, and is the best fighting game on the GBA, second only to Street Fighter Alpha 3 Upper. To its credit, GGX Advance was finished long before SFA3 Upper, which only makes it more impressive that it’s able to stand up against the newer titles on the system. Any fighting game fan needs to do himself a favor and pick this title up immediately.

There have been a lot of 2d fighters for the GBA recently. Some admit to being 2d fighters and stay true to their formula, like Street Fighter 2 and others try to be pseudo-3d, like Tekken and Mortal Kombat. In my opinion, Guilty Gear X AE is better than those three titles I mentioned and is currently among the top fighting games made. The game’s difficulty could be improved, but overall this is a great game. If you are in need of a GBA fighter, you can’t be too wrong to pick this one up.

Guilty Gear X Advance is a good game for the Game Boy Advance. This game will remain in the players Game Boy for quite some time. This is one game that has its sights set on taking over Capcom’s leadership in creating the best fighting game on the market. Even though this game isn’t perfect, it is getting close to reaching that goal of overtaking the might Street Fighter market. With a little more time, greater character selection, and making the game a little harder, Capcom will have a serious contender on their hands. In the mean time, if you are looking for a good fighting game for your GBA, I suggest trying this game out, as it might be the fighting game you have been looking for.
Gegen Tekken Advance zieht dieses farbenfrohe Beat‘em-Up eindeutig den Kürzeren. Einen dicken Minuspunkt bekommen die Gegner, die eher wie Statisten wirken und dich nicht wirklich herausfordern. Mit ein paar Schlägen sind sie k.o. Die Grafik ist sehr bunt und im Comic-Look gehalten und damit bestenfalls Geschmackssache. Die Anzahl an Kämpfern und Stages geht in Ordnung, dafür gibt es aber leider zu wenig Modi. Die Steuerung ist leicht erlernbar und unterscheidet sich eigentlich nicht von der Steuerung anderer Prügelspiele. Du hast sie deshalb schnell drauf. Dieses Beat‘em-Up ist gutes Mittelmaß, kann sich aber nicht gegen die Genre-Champions behaupten, dafür fehlt es eindeutig an Inhalt, Abwechslung und Herausforderung.

Simply put if you’re in the mood for a great portable fighter then you should look no further than Sammy’s Guilty Gear Advance. The game is fun, looks great and is simple enough for anyone to pick-up-and-play.
As a two-player game, Guilty Gear X rocks as one of the best fighting games on the GBA. On the other hand, the one-player mode is rendered worthless extremely stupid AI

Guilty Gear X Advance Edition is not the best fighting game you can get on the GBA, but it's also not the worst. It almost sits right in the middle. It looks decent, sounds OK, and plays almost as well as any other good fighter on the GBA. If you've already got Street Fighter II and KOF EX, and you're still looking for something more, Guilty Gear should be next on your list.

Contrairement à ses concurrents directs que sont KOF, Tekken et Street Fighter, cet épisode GBA de Guilty Gear X n'a pas bénéficié d'autant de soin qu'il le méritait. Le jeu souffre principalement d'un niveau de difficulté mal dosé et d'une réalisation qui laisse à désirer, ce qui en fait un épisode sans intérêt pour tous les fans de la série ou les amateurs de jeux de combats 2D.
The Video Game Critic (Jan 19, 2004)
The fantasy backgrounds are completely static and have a washed-out look. The music is totally unappealing, and the distorted voice samples sound like static. But the worst aspect is the game's low difficulty, which is surprising considering how tough the PS2 versions are. The normal skill level is laughably easy, and even at "very hard" I could dispatch my opponents easily with minimal technique required. Upon winning the arcade mode, you view a text ending, and are then forced to sit through boring credits - some reward! Guilty Gear Advance does save high scores, and you can link up with a friend, but what's the point, really?
