Its release was similarly well received, with Metacritic and Game Rankings giving it aggregate scores of 82 and 80.83% respectively. It has sold 1 million copies worldwide, and has received significant praise from review outlets such as Nintendo Power, GamePro, and IGN, the latter awarding it the Game Boy Advance Game of the Month award for August 2003.
