  • Summary: [Playstation Network] Bomberman Ultra includes all the classic gameplay elements that have made the series famous over the past few decades. Power-ups are as fun as ever and prove useful in order to dominate your opponents. And of course, the fast and frantic multiplayer action always keeps things heated! Along with the above features, Bomberman Ultra is packed with all of the options you'd expect for non-stop fun. Allowing for full customization of your character, Bomberman Ultra allows you to pick and choose from countless accessories, body styles, and other fashions to make a wholly unique Bomberman character! Feel like going as a pirate dressed in a tutu? Go for it. Up for a more space man look with a ninja suit on? By all means. The full Bomberman costume wardrobe is immediately unlockable at the very start of the game giving you more than 150,000 unique combinations. Fans find outrageous level designs across 14 stages that challenge gamers from all backgrounds. Keep a sharp eye as most stages have one or more unique gimmicks to add a little challenge to the map! From hazardous trap doors to deadly tornadoes, your character will usually have a lot more to worry about than your rivals trying to bomb you. Of course the real fun in Bomberman is the multiplayer! Bring your custom look to the battle arena with full 8 player online multiplayer over PSN and 4 player local multiplayer. A bevy of options are also available to you when setting up your frenzied matches to tailor them the way you’d like. From active gimmicks on the map to other gameplay options, every battle is yours to make your own. [Hudson] Expand

  1. The fact that you can gameshare Bomberman Ultra makes this a no-brainer and a must-buy.
  2. Bomberman Ultra is exactly what we want from the Bomberman concept. Easy, highly detailed game configuration and loads of fun and yelling out of frustration, delight or simple anger. Many Bomberman games in the last decade have been disappointments. This one isn't one at all. It's excellent.
  3. A solid update on the classic Bomberman series which utilises online play well. Well worth a download.

    The vast amount of game options should keep your bombing runs going all night. A good deal at ten bucks, this is a download Bomberman fans will want to make room for.
  5. You must download this now. [Sept 2009, p.110]
  6. Bomberman Ultra is exactly as expected and should be merited for that, although it’s very similar to the Xbox 360 version if you have that already. Regardless, Bomberman is just like riding a bike, you may not do it for years, but you never forget how to blow stuff up. Nothing overly ground breaking, nothing unexpected, just great fun.
  7. Even with all of its issues Bomberman Ultra! can still be a blast if you have a bunch of like-minded friends nearby and six extra DualShock 3s, but for those potential online bombermen and women out there, better wait for a patch or the inevitable sequel.
