  • Excerpt: For those who are unfamiliar with the Bomberman series and how it plays, I will give a brief summary of the basics of Bomberman battle mode. Bomberman battle mode sets up several characters (or Bombermen) in positions over a small bomberman arena. Armed with a bomb, you can drop to attempt to kill the other bombers or blow open blocks, it's a winner take all death match that pits you against all the other bombermen . The last Bomberman standing wins.

  • Excerpt: This is long overdue, particularly since its sequel is already out, but I wanted to have a review on file for this game so I could refer back to it in my Bomberman Jetters review. This game is truly one of the best of the early GCN titles, beaten out only by Super Smash Brothers Melee and possibly Super Monkey Ball.

  • Conclusion: So… if the graphics and music are basically average, why has the game received a fairly high grade? That’s the easy part. The gameplay is classic Bomberman, and for those players who have played a Bomberman game in the past, you know what this means. For starters, the multiplayer game never gets old. Collecting power-ups, demolishing blocks, and blasting opponents into oblivion is as fun here as it’s ever been.

  • Excerpt: Born of the trend of cel shading, the graphics have a distinctly cartoon look. Bomberman and his enemies sport the typical black outline and smooth coloring of the graphical style, while the surrounding environments range from lushly colored outdoor scenes to rigidly mechanical structures surrounded by molten metals. Bomberman even sinks to the depths of the sea to explore sunken ships and to battle with malignant shellfish.

  • Excerpt: Bomberman is back, and this time he's in 3D, cel-shaded graphics that work great. Bomberman Generation shifts the focus of the previous games toward adventure-puzzle gameplay, and our resident Bomberman fanatic just loves it. Click here.
  • Pros: ups: Strategy-oriented puzzle solving mixed with adventure; cute characters and bright, colorful graphics; classic franchise goes 3D and cel-shaded; Battle Mode adds lots of replay value.
  • Cons: downs: Not much of a story; short single-player mode.

Bomberman Generation Review

  • Excerpt: For all the Marios, Sonics, and Crash Bandicoots of the video game universe, there are just as many second-tier mascot characters like Hudson's nondescript bomb-dropping concoction, Bomberman. And while Hudson's white-suited explosives expert may not get the respect of some other, more high-profile characters, his image is indelible and his games have brought smiles to many faces.
