Here's what I mean. It seems that in discussions involving the games and protagonists, this game always seems to get the shaft. Even "Chinatown Wars" gets mentioned in those discussions, so it isn't like portable titles don't get discussed because even LCS and VCS get mentioned, though it could be argued because they were ported to the PS2.

 

The thing about this game is that there are discussions about protagonists and Mike gets no mention once. This game probably is canon to the 3D universe as Asuka and 8-Ball appear in the game. King Courtney also plays a role, not to mention is actually seen. But then again, it's possible that this game may have gotten the treatment that "MGS: Ghost Babel" did as that one isn't considered to be part of the "Metal Gear" canon.

 

I have never actually played this game, but I have watched the entire walkthrough on YouTube.

Your last sentence answers your question perfectly. Since it was made exclusively for Game Boy Advance and wasn't even made by Rockstar many people simply don't know about its existence. 

 

Game was pretty weak for a GTA game, its story isn't considered as canon by R* themselves since no character was mentioned in other game, which makes it pretty obscure title. It would be good if anyone calling himself GTA fan would actually play it and try to finish it, but seeing as I was struggling with finishing it due to weak controls and pretty low quality I won't be surprised if the game will stay where it is currently.

Well, there were some characters that appeared in III that appeared in this game, like I said before. Plus, some websites state that it was a prequel of some sort to III, but then again, it was either Wikipedia or GTA Wiki that I read. I can't always rely on those sources. Rockstar did publish the game as they have the rights to GTA but another developer worked on it.

But none of the characters that appeared exclusively in this game (Cisco, Mike, Yuki, etc.) were mentioned in other games. It's not strange Advance used some characters from III, since it was newer game and developer wanted some connection between two games, but R* hadn't reuse any of them again. Also R* doesn't seem to care about existence of this game, despite the fact that they published it.

It would be awesome if they created a 3d version huh?

Yep, this is the most ignored GTA game. A lot people are not aware of it's existence, but this was a great game. :)

It wasn't that bad as people say. It is inferior to GTA games, but it's still very nice. Not a bad story, it fits the style of GTA3, just in 2D.

If GTA Advance was released for iOS/Android, I bet more people would look into it and buy it.

 

It's similar to CTW.  I bought it on Christmas 2014, just 4 months ago.  However, it was released in 2009.  I would of NEVER played CTW if it weren't released for iOS, since that is what I own and can buy it and play it on.  I never owned a DS and wanted one either.  Same for PSP.  LCS/VCS is the same way.  I only got these in April 2014, one year ago, for my birthday.  In fact 1 year and 3 days ago, exactly.  I got them for the PS2 and play then on my backward compatible PS3.  It all depends where they are released, imo.

 

If things would ALWAYS have a Playstation, Xbox, PC, and Mobile Release, then more people would play and know the "under rated" GTA Games like LCS, VCS, CTW........And Advance.

Lol it seems to be the most ignored in the entire series...

 

But like alot of people said including Milita right up there ^^ If it get's released in IOS/Android it may get more popular, and considering the tenth anniversary for the game is already up, Advance would proabably be the best option for R* to release on the android/IOS. Advance is always said to be the worst GTA game, and I think it could be better if it is released in IOS/Android.

I saw Chinatown Wars on the Nintendo DS and it looks absolutely HORRIBLE.  I got the very newest version which was released around Christmas 2014, in HD, and it looks absolutely AMAZING!  I saw how Advance looks and again, it's terrible, but if they made it for iOS/Android in HD, I'd easily buy it, no joke.  But since it's only on Gameboy Advance and is so limited right now, it's never gonna be played until it sees a Mobile release...

Exactly. And sadly I think R* forgot about the existance of it considering everything with GTA Online and stuff right now.....  :cry:

Yeah but releasing it on mobile means it needs to be remastered (so noone complains) and that means lot of work and that means work for R* so no it most probably won't be remastered.
