On the selected player, there is a round circle under his feet. Goal Keeper is automatic. It will take some time to know how to play efficiently.

47. Virtua Tennis (2002)

One of the best Graphics game. The developer really works hard on developing the Virtua Tennis Game.

The Ground is amazing They also bring the players shadow. You don’t need to play always with a computer because this is a multi-player game.

But this game has little bit better control from David Beckham soccer. Take a look to screenshots before downloading.

Disney sports soccer

49. Tiger Woods: PGA Tour 2004

Download ROM

Tiger woods name of Golf player. So company release game on his name to make it successful. Gold games are not very successful in the game boy advance community.

Due to the lack of control. Actually, this is a problem for all sports games. From all Gold games that I have tested this is best so far.

There is nothing to explain it is like a Golf game. The object of the wall gets into the hole within a few strokes.

50. Major League Baseball 2K7

Download ROM

If you are a baseball lover then you should check this game. Personally, I never played baseball and I even don’t know how to play it properly.

Game graphics are good. When you are bowling then you can select the location and the ball should be fast, curveball, sinker or changeup

Same way when you are batting you has to guess where you should ball thrown and then select a location. I found that some process is a bit slow like throwing, bowling takes 1-2 second after selecting where to throw the ball.
