    I love the series and the latest installment is worthy of a purchse...While I prefer the Dreamcast version a tad more.

    Plays like Zelda with bombs instead of swords and shields.
  4. Games are meant to be fun and Hudson couldn’t have squeezed more fun into Bomberman Generation if it tried.

    I figured there was no way that the gameplay could be as good as the graphics. It didn't take long for BG to prove me wrong. [August 2002, p.52]

    For the sum of all its explosive elements, Bomberman Generation is a lighthearted, yet unexpectedly entertaining title.
  8. An engaging and addictive game.
  9. The GameCube engine is used well to convey the feeling of playing within a cartoon world and the play balance is just right for young and old players alike.

    While the single player is rather ordinary, the multiplayer mode makes Bomberman Generation a must for GameCube owners with friends. [August 2002, p.82]
  11. The cel-shaded graphics are appropriate for once, and are also well done.
  12. 80
    The gameplay is so enjoyable, however, that it should almost be required to at least try - especially the multiplayer mode.
  13. 1) It's a blast to play. 2) There are a ton of extra items to collect and lots of hidden (albeit small) areas to explore. 3) The multiplayer mode is very explosive (in other words, it rocks).
  14. A short but sweet single player (around 10 hours), an endlessly re-playable multiplayer.
  15. As good a version of Bomberman as there ever has been, complete with a fairly interesting single-player adventure and plenty of variations for the multiplayer side of things.
