    Easy... in terms of pure power, or just artistic style. What are your thoughts?

    I'd probably say FFTA.

    Good question, given how many GBA games there are. Minish Cap looks really good, as does Yoshi's Island (a SNES port, I know!) but there are lots.

    From a technical standpoint, possibly Doom II? Hard to say.

    Wing Commander Prophecy was pretty slick looking for a GBA game. I'd put that one close to the top of the pile.

    I don't know much about the technology behind it, but I thought the Golden Sun series looked awesome.

    Golden Sun and Mario Golf (powered by the same engine) are an incredible technical achievement for the plaform.

    Art-wise, on top of my head Megaman Zero, Minish Cap, Secret of Mana and Castlevania 3 (Aria of Sorrow, IIRC) are very good-looking.

    Gunstar Super Heroes looks very very good.

    Max Payne was good looking in it's own way. Hands-down the most impressive sound in a GBA game though.
