The First Rechargeable Battery Game Boy

Pros: rechargeable battery, lighted screen

Cons: L and R buttons can be awkward to use

The Bottom Line: Great Game Boy System for playing older games with some newer technology such as backlight.

This is the first Game Boy that does not run on AA (or AAA as the Game Boy Pocket runs on) batteries. Instead it has a built in rechargeable battery and of course comes with a charger. It is also a nice small size, so you can easily fit it in your pocket, but the screen is not too small to minimize the ability to play the game. I like how it has a built in back light, as the worm light did not really light up the whole screen of the Game Boy Advance. The only issue I have with this system is that it is hard to use the L and R buttons, especially for kids with small hands. It does not effect the use of many of the games, but the ones that require these buttons can be quite hard to succeed at playing.

The main thing I like about this system is that it is the last system that still plays the Game Boy Color and Original Game Boy games. I also like that it can be connected to the Game Cube with a connector cable to get extra features in game like Animal Crossing, something that the new DS cannot do.
