  1. There's no way you coudn't call it a good buy. [Dec 2008, p.72]
  2. While a bit basic, Bomberman Blast is all you really need at the end of the day to enjoy the series’ signature gameplay.
  3. One of the best WiiWare games yet, Blast is a funfilled multiplayer explosion.
  4. Offers almost everything we want from a BM game. Multiplayer japes don't get better than this. [Dec 2008, p.84]

    This offering doesn't innovate but it's got that classic, addictive quality we've been enjoying since Super Bomberman on the SNES. Blast is, to surrender to an easy pun, a blast to play.
  6. It's hard to quibble over such a dependable game.
  7. Bomberman Blast captures mostly everything Bomberman Live has, and adds some excellent new content into the mix. It’s been a long time since we got some classic Bomberman action on a Nintendo console, but it’s back now, and possibly better than ever.
  8. Talk about a lot of bang for your buck: ten dollars for a fully functional online Bomberman.

    And alas, another Bomberman game. This one available ONLY on WiiWare. And then, you get that feeling when you start playing it. A feeling that tells you It's going to be a "blast!" This newer, funner, harder installment to the franchise won't disappoint. As it includes 8 player Wi-Fi battles, fresh looking graphics, new ways to play, and more! Including faster more complex gameplay to keep you on the edge of your seat. Although Wi-Fi suffers a bit because of sudden connection loss for no apparent reson, it is still a must have for all Bomberman fans alike. People new to the series will also enjoy it in all it's wonderful splender. It earns a well earned 9 from me. Full Review »

    This game is very good. We had 5 people in the room so we decided to buy this on the off chanse it worked with the gamecube pads as well as the wii remotes AND IT DOES! we had 4 remotes and one gamecube pad playing all at the same time and im pretty sure it would be fine with 4 wii controlers and 4 gamecube pads all at the same time. Anyway back to the game. this is bomberman through and through with enough options to gear it to any bomberman that is your fav. manic fast and fun. This game is really for 3 players or more any less and its just not as fun. Full Review »

    This game rocks! Classic bomberman action and 8 player online is sweet. It's only 1000 wii points too so it's not going to put a hole in your pocket. Great fun if you have friends over too as up to 4 people from the same wii can go online at once and play with others online. Graphics are lush and colourful, music and sound is great. All in all it's a cheery game that's great fun that you'll want to have on your wii menu! My favourite bomberman is still bomberman 64....I hope that gets released on VC. But for now get BB now!
