So which GBA games got the highest reviews? It's probably not what you think.

Famitsu has given out this weeks Dendo titles (hall of fame) and it's interesting to see where each of the GBA titles came in.

Here's a quick rundown of the awards...

Dendo Gold

Power Pro-kun Pocket 3 - GBA

Dendo Silver

Battle Network ROCKMAN X - GBA

Mr. Driller 2 - GBA

F-ZERO - GBA

Here's what Famitsu had to say about this weeks awards.

"Weekly Famitsu Magazine's" March 30 Cross Review, due in stores on March 16 in Japan, celebrates a bumper crop harvest of good games -- with six titles being honored as Dendo Gold titles and three others earning a Dendo Silver rating. This week is also special as Game Boy Advance (GBA) makes a strong first showing by landing four titles, which will all be released on the handheld's sales date, in the Dendo Hall of Fame.

The first-ever Dendo Gold title for GBA is Power Pro-kun Pocket 3 -- Konami's simulation game where gamers train tiny little baseball players. PlayStation 2 (PS2) got three Dendo Gold titles this week: Jikkyo J. League Perfect Striker 3, Konami's soccer game which features officially licensed J. League players; Namco's exhilarating action game KLONOA 2; and Capcom's hit survival-horror adventure BIOHAZARD -CODE: Veronica- Complete Version. Dreamcast proved that they are still alive by blasting off two Dendo Gold titles -- BIOHAZARD -CODE: Veronica- Complete Version and the latest version of Sega's popular adventure simulation series, Sakura Wars 3.

GBA cornered this week's Dendo Silver game section with three of their upcoming titles. First up is Capcom's action RPG Battle Network ROCKMAN X, which has been fully refurbished for GBA, followed by Namco's digging action game Mr. Driller 2, whose arcade version has been unstoppable in Japan. Finally, F-ZERO FOR GAMEBOY ADVANCE, which lets players experience an incredibly refreshing sensation of speed for a handheld racing game, also made the grade.
