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

While Bomberman Hero lacks the multiplayer that the series is known for, it does provide a surprisingly solid platforming title. While the plot is a laughably bad rip-off of Star Wars, the gameplay provides many tricks and challenges to enjoy. The game's soundtrack is incredibly catchy even for those who dislike the jazz/techno genres which most of it is based on. Though some of the vehicular levels will cause frustration (especially the Bomber Jet if you're a 100% completionist) they are still manageable. Bomberman Hero might be limited to one player, but its soundtrack, gameplay, and challenges are sure to make up for it if you are a fan of the platforming genre.… Expand

The 3D effects require some adjusting (both with the tab and with your own perspective of the 3DS's screen) but is truly stunning when set properly. As for the controls, there is a noticeable improvement in controls over the SNES and Nintendo 64 titles. The missions are enjoyable and free fly mode provides hundreds of collectibles which should provide hours of entertainment. However, one complaint I have is the lack of areas to explore. Though Wahu Island is large, having it as the only setting for the game is kind of disappointing and really limits the many types of environments you could have explored from the skies. There was also a lot of wasted potential with the lack of Shutterbug missions and Flying Squirrel Suit missions (only one for each of them).
The game is a solid launch title for the 3DS. It's not perfect and it might not have the staying power of a Mario or Zelda title, but it shows off what the 3DS can do and provides us with an enjoyable distraction that is fun to go back to even after finishing it.… Expand
