Now, Bomberman is coming back as "SUPER BOMBERMAN R" to Nintendo Switch. In SUPER BOMBERMAN R, the simple rule remains the same: operate the main character (Bomberman), place bombs, and battle with enemies and rivals, but it's coming back in a modern style with 3D stages and photo-real graphics. You can enjoy battles with rivals from all over the world. There is "Battle" mode for maximum of 8 players, and single play "Story" mode (cooperative play for 2 players is possible as well) where players clear each stage one by one, with a big volume of 50 stages. Also, there is a new rule where the condition to clear the stage is not just by wiping out all the enemies. This simple but strategic game with new rules and 3D stages is fun for everyone, from children to adults. Expand

    Super Bomberman R is the game that Switch needed at its beginning. Quick plays and lots of action with your friends in a very entertaining game that brings back the nostalgia.

    Super Bomberman R is the best multiplayer option right now for every Nintendo Switch owner. Sadly its main flaw is its input lag, that makes the online battles hard to play in some occasions. Still the 8 player on TV is as fun as in every other game of the franchise. Its single player campaign is fun but too short.

    Despite some flaws and a clear focus on multiplayer, Super Bomberman R is a good return to the roots of the franchise. Short on single player but endless fun with friends.

    Super Bomberman R is far from a bad game, but it clearly needed more time in the oven. [Issue #27 – May/June 2017, p. 68]

    Both the campaign and the online multiplayer are nice additions to the franchise, but they can be frustrating. Especially the online multiplayer feels incomplete, but thankfully the local multiplayer makes up for that.

    This is a cheap game with an expensive price tag, and there's nothing remotely super about it. [May 2017, p.123]

    As someone who long lost interest in the Bomberman series and wasn't putting any faith at all in this game, I was pleasantly surprised. GoodAs someone who long lost interest in the Bomberman series and wasn't putting any faith at all in this game, I was pleasantly surprised. Good characters, good humour, good gameplay, all things that I never expected to see again from a ip owned by Konami, seing their recent distancing from games as a whole. It's a good experience if you like Bomberman games. Expand

But graphics aren't what's important to a game. Yet with that said, i think the presentation is a reflection of this games simplicity and need to play it safe. it is Bomberman, that's it. While that's not a bad thing the game just doesn't do anything new. The game works, however, at times the isometric camera angle almost feels like a Bomberman design sin, as it can get in the way of gameplay.

    if you are looking for a fun arcade multiplayer game to enjoy with your friends, id say give it a shot.
    if you don't have any friends. this game isn't worth the 50 dollar price tag.

Problem is Konami or the game. There's this strange input lag and you know as well as I that Bomberman is a game is accuracy and immediacy. When you got input lag and you're trying to place bombs at a moments notice its terrible. KONAMI has recognized this as an issue and hopefully a patch will be out soon. Otherwise it's a very good game. Basic. Bomberman. Expand
