  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 »

    Play this game online or with friends and you have the Bomberman formula working at it's peak. The solo experience however is a tremendous letdown as it contains no story line. Full Review »

    It's Bomberman! Everything you would expect is packed in this WiiWare title, and of course it really is best played with friends at home or online. I did find the graphics to be a bit hard to see on my smaller HDTV with the 16:9 setting, but your results may vary on larger displays. Challenging and fun; a good starter for new players and longtime fans of the Hudson franchise. Full Review »
