  1. The new additions on the DS blend in seamlessly with the original game and the end result is fantastic.
  2. I'm going to be frank: Bomberman DS is the best multiplayer Bomberman game ever. With so many different game modes, options, items, and arenas, there's enough variety that the game never gets old.
  3. There's never a time when you wont want to pick this up and give it a buzz. Genuine good fun.
  4. This game doesn't really take advantage of the DS's cool touch-screen technology... Still, Bomberman is a blast.
  5. Aside from the boss battles, not one of those stages offers any kind of depth or variety; 10-year-old Bomberman games were more interesting. Multiplayer, however, delivers.
  6. Although it fails to visually inspire any sense of awe, Hudson’s creation astounds the player by taking Nintendo’s advice and creating something fresh with a formula that’s existed since the eighties. Well done!
  7. Wireless multiplayer can be a fun diversion, but it's hardly good enough to justify this $30 purchase. [Aug 2005, p.107]
