Unlike most of the people that have reviewed this game, I rented it knowing what was in store. I have been a fan of the bomberman series since I was a kid, and while the single player mode has the worst story ever the mini-games aren't as bad as you've been lead to believe. Although, there is nothing in single player remotely close to the bomberman we've come to love all is made up in the multi player mode. Multi player is just as you remember it and even has a few new features which will make the games last. If you're looking for a party game and loved the old bomberman series rent this game. If your wanting a single player game, then this title may not be for you.
I love Bomberman games. I knew this game was in a minigame format. But little did I know that the mini games have absolutely NOTHING to do with the bomberman games of old. example: Bomberman holding a gun, trying to avoid bunch of balls bouncing around the screen and then trying to take a shot at them with that gun. If you hit them, they split in half. Continue and continue until they disappear. If you miss...game over. You have to restart the whole group of minigames all over again. Very tedious and so not fun at all.
IF you have a group of people, then multiplayer might be fun. But you are better off SKIPPING this game and using nintendo points to download a real bomberman game.
First off Skip this and buy Bomberman 93 on the VC!! (Or Mario Party 8)
The story takes an hour before you can start playing (TONS OF TEXT); and the gameplay is like Carnival games because you need "tokens" and the rankings is similar. There is only one game in each arena; and there is nothing in training. You move the charachter with the "B" button which makes it strange. Also how the game is put together (the arena) connecting the "games" is strange.
The only good this is the graphics but that does not warrant a rental. Even Die Hard Bomberman fans will be dissapointed in this re-make.
