|Releasing the game the same day as San Andreas was also a bad marketing strategy for this game.|
I think this has more to do with it than anything. It didn't help that game reviewers often saw GTA: Advance right after playing San Andreas which was absolutely mindblowing at the time.
Perhaps if Rockstar had released it in 2003, between Vice City and San Andreas, it might've done a little better. No modding support further reduced the appeal too.
I consider it the lost game of the GTA series.

This game is probably lost in time, since GBAs are hard to come by, etc. It's really only essential now for canon purposes cause of GTA 3. Gameplay wise, I think it's dead.

|To be honest I didn't know GTAA existed until a couple of years ago by reading another GTA forum.|
This. But I saw it somewhere on YouTube. I thought it was just a frigging mod or a phony. It turned out to be legit and I didn't give a f*ck.

|I remember when I picked up GTA San Andreas from preorder, I saw GTA Advance on the shelves and bought it just to have another game to play after SA. It was actually not too bad, but there really was close to no information about this title. It just came. In all honesty, this could have been a better and more successful game if they just took more time on it; and didn't release it on the same day as GTA San Andreas.|
It came out the day before GTA SA but I know what you meant.
In all honesty I don't think it should of ever been released. Who actually bought it? Who has a GBA? Half of the people that have played it have played it of an emulator so... yeah.

|If it was released like GTA III graphics, it would be a success, it has a good storyline(my opinion) but i think the game is pretty messed up|
More like beta GTA III graphics, that's probably the only type that GBA could handle, but seriously GBA was awesome in the day but it's hard to play now cause it's lacking a lighting system so you could only play it when it was day time since only natural light made it easy to see, lights in my room make it hard to see.. so that's why people consider it inferior I guess, not cause how it was made but it lacks a lighting system ... so thats why not alot of ppl played Advance on GBA, rather a emulator.

As long as there is 1 poster on the section the section is alive.

The reason why I got excited about it was because it was (and still is) the only GTA game not rated as 18. It had a 16 rating, which meant my mother was less reluctant to purchase this than San Andreas.
My brother had San Andreas in 2004 - which I was not allowed to play freely at the time - so this was the only GTA I had. I ended up not playing it that much and just traded it in along with my Gameboy Advance.
