Action Replay VS. Gameshark,
This review is from: Nintendo Datel Gameboy Advance GBA & SP Action Replay Max (Video Game)
This is a good Buy if you get stuck in games, or just to have if you dont have weeks to spend to get every last Pokemon and you cant find omeone with a Ruby to link to your Saphire to finish your colection. but if you have a GameShark you are not stuck, i am sure that some of you reading this are here because Gameshark is now owned by a new company and their online servise and code updates have seemd to stop compleatly.
What many people don't know is that the Action Replay is Compleatly identical to the GBA GameShark, just with a different sticker on it. down to the Internet Update program.
all they did was licence the hardware and put their own labels on it and changed the coding system around a bit.
well.. if you go to ActionReplays website ...you can download a file that will turn your Gameshark into an action replay CAUTION.. DOING THIS WILL PERMANTLY MAKE YOUR GAMESHARK AN ACTIONREPLAY. AND YOU WILL LOOSE ANY CODES YOU HAVE ALREADY ENTERED IN IT, AND GAME SHARK CODES ARE'NT COMPATABLE ONCE YOU UPGRADE.
But on the upside the Upgrade is Compleatly Free Bringing your GS and AR to Version 3 AND and all the codes you had before are replaced with AR versions and Each Game now has almost twice the cheats now and the Program comes with the latest codes in the Download. and I hav'nt missed the Gameshark site since i upgraded. The Download program is updated about Twice a Week and new codes are posted almost Daily!
And I Find that the GameShark with the Replay's program in it is more stable then the Replay version itself, and has no trouble Automaticaly Recoginizing any games I put in it, Even when the code is typed in manualy.
I downloaded over 50 new codes in the last three weeks alone and there are so many New Codes for all the latest games There is no space in the shark any more and I Have to store the rest on the computer till i need it.
After Upgrading you might notice there is a lot less space left to enter more codes.. that is because when upgrading you have been given over 2000 more codes, Just save the you wont use till later on your computer till you need them unless you have over 500 games that you need all the codes on at once.
