  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.
  4. With everything that Bomberman Ultra offers you for only a ten dollar download, there is no doubt that this should be a game in your PSN collection. Those who grew up with Bomberman in the 80s and 90s will be completely satisfied and first time players will only take a few moments before they become addicted to the game.
  5. The game may technically be over two years old, but that doesn't stop Bomberman Ultra from being one of the best downloadable games on the PS3.
  6. This is a great game; if you’re looking for something to play with your friends this is definitely a buy.

    One of the best PlayStation Network multiplayer experiences you can get. [Issue#185, p.87]

    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.
  9. 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.

    Bomberman Ultra is a must own for fans of the series but the lack of new features doesn't make this a must buy for fans of the 2007 XBLA release. However, if you do not own a 360 and are waiting for the classic Bomberman experience on the PS3, download this version immediately.
  11. 80
    The right mix of fun and frivolous, at $10 Ultra's retro charms are a must have for any Bomberman fan.
  12. Bomberman is simply just one of those games that is amazingly easy to pick up and understand, but hard to master.

    You must download this now. [Sept 2009, p.110]
  14. 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.
