As far as older games from the 00’s are concerned in relation to Nintendo consoles in general the are some who would argue that the Game Boy Advance has better titles than GameCube for the most part. While GBA having better titles than GameCube is debatable it definitely seemed like the Game Boy Advance has more variety. There were games such as Sonic Battle which was pretty unique following its initial release back in December 2003. Sonic Battle was a title that hardcore fans of the Sonic series might remember because it was one of the few high profile titles that Sega had ever made in relation to the blue hedgehog. Sonic Battle was a fighting game with an intriguing plot that involved Dr. Eggman being one of the main antagonists like usual. The story mode focuses on an ancient weapon known as a Gizoid who is later named Emerl by Sonic who becomes one of the key characters in the game as it copies the abilities for various characters while becoming stronger process. Emerl also became more powerful which each Chaos Emerald that he received and ended becoming the main antagonist of Sonic Battle.

There were various aspects about cool the story mode for Sonic Battle that people like including the cutscenes, world maps along with the fact that people had the opportunity to play as various characters opposed to only Sonic. The story mode gave people the opportunity to play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, Shadow, Cream The Rabbit, Rouge the Bat and even Emerl himself. While playing with Emerl in the towards the beginning of the story mode was a huge challenge making progress throughout game was even more rewarding as players watched the story unfold. Sadly, Sonic Battle never received a direct sequel but its still seen as a underrated classic for the Game Boy Advance which does not get talked about as much as it should.
