Game Profile
 Written by Matt Swider  on February 14, 2003

Special: Good things do come in small packages.


Adventure Game Award





Winner: Metroid Fusion
Samus made her mark on Nintendo's portable platform with rich visuals and a detailed story that can't be matched by the competition.
The Runners-Up: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
The Runners-Up: Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance


Action Game Award





Winner: Super Monkey Ball Jr.
Those who enjoy Sega's big ape brother on GameCube will surely find this multiplayer monkey of a game to be an excellent port.
The Runner-Up: Tomb Raider: The Prophecy


Platform Game Award





Winner: Sonic Advance
Whenever Sonic appears in an new game, there's no beating his speed-demon attitude, especially in classic form.
The Runner-Up: Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3


First-Person Shooter Award





Winner: Duke Nukem Advance
Duke was able to dominate in a challenging genre with his girls, guns, and glory attitude intact on the handheld system.
The Runner-Up: Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever


Role-Playing Game Award





Winner: Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis
Quest clearly conquered the competition with its strategy filled gameplay that follows the Ogre Saga with great appeal.
The Runner-Up: Phantasy Star Collection


Sports Award





Winner: Baseball Advance
It may not be the World Series, but Sega is still a Home Run King thanks to the good, clean fun Baseball Advance boasts at bat.
The Runner-Up: Virtua Tennis


Extreme Sports Award





Winner: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4
Tony Hawk remains extreme 'to the max' in his fourth skate session with more great music, moves, and linking fun.
The Runner-Up: SSX Tricky


Driving Award





Winner: Driver 2 Advance
As we gear up for the third installment Driver, Sennari Interactive put us in reverse for a stunning handheld adaption of the second game.
The Runner-Up: V-Rally 3


Fighting Award





Winner: Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
Deadly Alliance Midway has fought its way back to the top by creating a Deadly Alliance that remains undefeated on each current platform.

Visuals GOTY

Samus made her mark on Nintendo's portable platform with rich visuals and a detailed story that can't be matched by the competition.
The Runner-Up: Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3


Audio GOTY

Acclaim makes an aggressive move by licensing music that we not only recognize, but sounds clear out of the GBA speaker.

Storyline GOTY

Surprise GOTY

Disappointing GOTY





Winner: Sega Smash Pack
We all looked forward to revisiting Sega's classics, but the mere lineup of games and unfortunate changes didn't stack up well in the end.
The Runner-Up: Gauntlet: Dark Legacy


Worst GOTY





Winner: Mortal Kombat Advance
It might have released in 2001, but we didn't get a chance to bash it until earlier the next year. And, we feel it can't go without receiving this award once.
The Runner-Up: Defender


BEST GOTY
