    Plays like Zelda with bombs instead of swords and shields.

    Loads of awesome game types to play with your buds. [August 2002, p.136]

    The gameplay is so enjoyable, however, that it should almost be required to at least try - especially the multiplayer mode.

    While the single player is rather ordinary, the multiplayer mode makes Bomberman Generation a must for GameCube owners with friends. [August 2002, p.82]
  6. Play Magazine

    Soaked in Club Med tunes, predictable, by the numbers gameplay, and slow methodical pacing; in other words, it ain't the bomb. [Aug 2002, p.71]

Following the precedent of theOne of the very few Bomberman games where the single player mode is just as enjoyable as the multiplayer mode. Following the precedent of the three Nintendo 64 titles, Bomberman Generation gives us a wide open area to explore and destroy in adventure mode with solid controls, interesting puzzles, and challenging bosses. The integration of the Charabom system as well as the return of elemental bombs makes single player mode an enjoyable experience. The battle mode remains as addicting as ever. With several modes such as the classic battle mode, Bomberman Generation is a great game to enjoy with friends or alone. Expand

With a history of great games Majesco doesn't fail with its latest installment. This game was meant to play 4-player. Do not buy this for its single player. Most of the re-play value comes from multi-player. Recommended for fans of the series and those who crowd aroun there TV for multi-player mayhem. Expand
