  1. With both off and online modes, combined with the classic Bomberman gameplay, this is one game that can most certainly referred to as da' bomb.

    The adventure itself is relatively fun and while certainly not similar to previous adventures, provides you with an ample opportunity to strut your stuff, Bomberman themed, in a number of mini-games meant to tax your brain.
  3. It might not be what Mrs. Hudson wants for him, but Bomberman's still one of the best multiplayer games you can buy, and whether or not you want another version you should at least dig out one of the ones you already own and raise your rollerskates in acknowledgement.

    Neither the best mini-game collection nor the best Bomberman game. [Mar 2007, p.81]
  5. The highlight of Bomberman Land Touch! is the excellent battle mode that supports as many as four players online and as many as eight offline.
  6. Sure, Bomberman is still sticking with 2D, and his tale is silly at the least, but there's a ton of gameplay value here. Atlus’s secret release really shouldn’t be kept hidden - it’s the bomb.
  7. This is perhaps the best Bomberman game that Hudson has put out since Saturn Bomberman.
  8. 85
    The adventure has a lot of fun little challenges in its goofy and quirky design, and the Battle Pack -- Bomberman's reason for being -- is a great version of last year's Bomberman DS with solid local and online support.
  9. 80
    The gameplay is pure classic Bomberman in Battle Mode, and the mini-games add some variety to the single-player game to make it a more enjoyable romp this time around.

    Proper Bomberman action that makes wise use of the Wi-Fi features built into DS. Consider the solo mode as a bonus in a great value package. [JPN Import; Oct 2006, p.63]

    The inclusion of traditional 2-D Bomberman is also nice, but if you already have Bomberman DS, there's almost nothing new here. [Jan. 2007, p.108]
  12. The combination of online classic Bomberman play and unique mini-games make Touch! Bomberman Land a highly recommended purchase. [JPN Import]
  13. Official Nintendo Magazine UK

    A brilliant turnaround for Bomberman adventuring and a great mutliplayer game for your DS. [Mar 2007, p.76]
  14. Although the novel RPG Story element is less refined than it could be, with over-long cut-scenes and some tedious schlepping, Bomberman Story is a worthwhile RPG and, more importantly, a terrific multiplayer experience.
  15. If anything can be said against the Battle Mode, it is that by modern standards, it feels a little slight.

The game relies on the touch screen for navigation and its minigames. The minigames, being the main "attraction" are sometimes hit or miss, and it can become a drag after playing some of them over and over to acquire all the cards and unlocking everything.

While not one of the best DS games, it is a good one and worth picking up, much Bomberman-multiplayer related fun to be had, but the friendless can always play against the CPU, or have a crack at the single player game.
