2.0 out of 5 stars Gets the job done, but still too low on space!!, October 24, 2003
This review is from: GameCube 251 Memory Card (Video Game)
The Nintendo Memory Card 251 is the largest 1st party memory card offered to Gamecube users. It does a great job with fast saves/loads. I did get a corrupted file once with the game Ikaruga, but other than that the performance has been fine. Unfortunatley 251 blocks isn't enough to save all your settings and season progress in any one sports game...let a lone all the other games you probably play! For example when I bought the awesome Madden 2004, rushed home, popped it in my GC I got a nice big error message saying I wouldn't be able to save all my settings and progress through a season. I also play other sports titles (like FIFA) so the 251 card was NOT cutting it. My solution was to find a 3rd party card with more memory, but a good track record in terms of not corrupting files (some of the large 3rd party ones are known for corrupting often). That really led me to only 1 option: the Nyko 64Mb card allowing over 1000 blocks of data to be saved. After some heavy use it still hasn't corrupted any files and actually loads better than the 251 card! The best part is that the HUGE 64Mb card is the same price as the very tiny 251. Do yourself a favor and just get the Nyko 64Mb.
