Graphics 7.5 out of 10
Bomberman's graphics are quite good it has great mipp mapping and good
textures on the polygons. The levels are quite large and detailed take
black 3 for example, which takes so much exploration and is a lot of fun.
Some bosses look so cool like Leviathon and Hades. Of course there are
some problems like Bomberman is made of sprites not polygons but he
is still fairly well animated, but often his face seems off his head. A
part that deserve s a special mention is being able to make custom
bomber's ones like the dragon look amazing, but putting Bomberman
in a dress is always a great laugh.
Sound 9 out of 10
Bomberman's sound is around the best on the machine. You will soon
be bombing to the beat in no time with an interesting bunch of tunes.
Music on bosses are also quite good except maybe your showdown
with Altair. Sound effects are quite good, like the explosions each
bomb makes. It's just that it takes a back seat to the music
Gamplay 9.5 out of 10
The gameplay is fantastic. The levels are huge and take a hell of a lot
of exploration and the array of Items is dizzing Fire increase, bomb
increase, remote Bomb, power bomb, pumped bomb, skull, evil mask,
block, pot. It is amazing I tell you there is more to the game than you
think. There are at least FIVE different game endings all with a special
secret in them. To fully complete the game it would take a hardcore
gamer at least two months and a beginner maybe even a year. Oh I can't
believe I forgot to tell you about the battle mode, it is a small environment
where up to four bombers are placed in a small area and they have a desire
to blow the others to Kingdom Kong is a lot of fun, Here is where you use
you're custom bomber off a memory pak. There is 6 levels to start with
but you get more depending your progress in Adventure mode.
Overall 8.5 out of 10
It would have gotten 9 if Super Mario 64 didn't exist. But Mario is still
a better game.
