Pocket-friendly small size; bright, brilliant screen; decent battery life; standard headphone jack; huge library of games; swappable faceplates provide screen protection.
Game Boy titles are looking old vs. more advanced competition; body and screen size may be just too small for some; not compatible with older GBA accessories and older Game Boy games; the more advanced and equally bright DS Lite--which can play all of the Micro's games--can be had for an additional $30.
Nintendo's latest Game Boy has an interesting design but doesn't offer anything you can't find in the company's other portables.

I find that this gameboy is ideal in the sense that is IS extraordinarily small. As far as graphics is concerned you already know what your buying, it is old technology. Despite that I am more satisfied playing with this gameboy then playing with the DS. The games have much more depth and content. I can become absorbed in the games I play on this system. There are great games bringing back nostalgic memories of fantastic adventures that the nintendo DS never did for me. Yet there is still a downside to this device. Its main focus and greatest strength is also its flaw. I find it uncomfortable to handle the device while playing certain games that require a certain coordination it has been uncomfortable in some cases because of the L and R buttons. For example, when I play metroid fusion holding down the L button to shoot my gun at an angle has proved difficult and my hand can end up cramping up from longer play sessions of doing this. Aside from that I am still glad i bought this GBA micro.it fits perfectly in any pocket. is light enough that i can put it away and forget about it until i remember i want to play with it again
all in all i would recommend this device to anyone who enjoys games on the go or just enjoys gaming in general
WHAT I LIKE:
Ultra-portable - It's really easy to carry anywhere you go and fits in any pocket with room to spare for a cellphone, ipod, etc. There's no reason not to carry it around all the time.
Sleek & Discreet - The Game Boy Micro is the size of an average cell phone so most people may assume you are texting rather than playing Super Mario 3. It's a pretty stylish looking system with a simple design. Must better looking than the Advance SP.
Standard Headphone Jack - No special headphones are required. The internal speaker isn't bad, but headphones provide much better audio.
Game library - There are a lot of great Game Boy Advance games out there and they are cheap! It's really great to have a pocket size collection of classics like Final Fantasy, Super Mario Bros and Pokemon.
WHAT I DON'T LIKE
Plastic Faceplates - They are easily scratched. Finding a new one is impossible and used ones are hit or miss. Someone really needs to produce more faceplates for those who use their GBMs heavily. If you get a good one be sure to buy some sort of case and/or screen protector to keep it in good shape. Being able to swap them is useless if there are no new ones.
No sleep mode - I've gotten used to flipping my DS screen closed to suspend a game and them open it up to resume it. Finding a save point in a game typically isn't difficult, but it takes a little longer.
Looking for a portable gaming system that you can play when you have that bit of spare time i.e waiting for your girlfriend to get ready for a night out? Waiting for public or unreliable private transport? Got some spare time at work? Well look no further than the Nintendo Gameboy Micro. The Micro is exactly what it says on the Tin! It offers sleek, portable (really! - measuring 2" by 4") on the go. Obviously designed for the casual image concious gamer as it also boasts a interchangeable faceplate depending on your mood you can strap up your Micro to let it show! Its graphical capabilites are not all that great when compared with other handhelds in the market to date, such as the DS Lite or PSP. But then with its library of over 700+ games (largest library compared to DS/PSP), there is something for everyone. Its movies in games are often just complex sprites instead of CGI but even then it just looks so impressive on a 2" backlit screen. The handling of the Micro is second to none to the new DS Lite whereas the PSP just flops behind. Don't get me wrong the PSP however is some serious piece of kit. The overall image of this portable is very chic! and I do believe for the more serious gamers, the micro is not worth gettin excited about. I have recently ordered a Micro (Black) from an ebay auction in America and the reason why I went over seas to get this one - due to the fact that Nintendo has started to lauch different colour schemes over here in the U.K and the black one is no available ;( Its all good!
Many people who own or know about Nintendo DS, love it for touch screen capability. I own the pink one myself and I love it. But many people don't know about the Gameboy Micro since the DS got so much publicity. The Micro is great for small hands or gameplayers who want to carry a very small Gameboy. I had known about the Gameboy Micro right after the DS release, but just never got around to purchasing one. Then I thought, after awhile, why don't I just buy it on Ebay? What a great idea!! Now for most of you or for the parents questioning, "should I get one for my child?" Ok, remember, this Gameboy does not use the game card, as in DS games. You will be using the games like the ones for Gameboy advance. There is no touch screen, yet a very bright and clear screen for game-playing at any time of the day. Me personally, I knew what I was buying, and I wanted an additional Gameboy for my purse and for when I'm on the go. The cool thing too about this tiny little thing, is that you can change the faceplates and it looks very cool. And I have kids myself and they get what I get. So you can only imagine the confusion of, "which ones mine?" Ya, well don't worry there! There's a lil spot where you can tie one of those little cute cell phone straps! I love my gaming experience on this Micro, because the music and audio is amplified. You wouldn't think so much loudness comes from such a tiny thing, oh but it does! And the brightness of the colors and just the clarity is immaculate! I give a 2 tiny thumbs up for this wonderful tiny little Gameboy Micro!
