Bomberman Live Review for Xbox 360: Another Bomberman game... Cool.

bomberman 360 review

Equipped with armored battle suits, the subjects must fight for survival and eliminate each other to determine who will become the Ultimate Human Weapon. There are 15 fields of battle, and aside from the classic arena and the giant arena, each one has a gimmick that affects the action. The camera is positioned away from the combatant and the player is given control over the camera. Sadly, you This game isn't as bad as people say. Players will need to learn which upgrades should be used online, and which should not.

Bomberman Live: Battlefest Review

bomberman 360 review

They look like creepy sadomasochistic cyborgs and not like Bomberman at all. Even as you're failing miserably in a game, you'll still be having fun, because it's just an enjoyable experience. Screaming matches, punching, shoving, cursing and controller hurling was just part of the charm. First-Person Bomber mode makes no sense at all since it's not first-person. Thank God I only borrowed this nauseatingly bad game. Super Bomberman R is well served for local multiplayer too, even if it's still a little slim. Or a silly arena in Super Bomberman 2 where walking on a spring will make you slowly bounce on top of blocks, leaving you vulnerable to other players.

Bomberman Live Review

bomberman 360 review

I've seen friends play, and it always looked like a lot of fun, but for whatever reason, I never picked up a controller and joined in the madness myself. Evade looming bomb blasts from a new tension-filled perspective. They released a buttload of Bomberman games. Bomberman ain't broke and it don't need fixin'. It's a new twist on an old thing. That's not to suggest that Bomberman's single player levels were dull and boring. Graphic wise Bomberman is a nice piece of eye candy.

Bomberman Act Zero Review / Preview for Xbox 360 (X360)

bomberman 360 review

If you enjoy a good game of Bomberman, have a 360, and Live, then you should pick this up. I'm sure everyone has some sort of fond memory. As Bomberman, your objective is simple: destroy your opponents before they destroy you. As Bomberman, Deep within an experimental underground facility, humans are imprisoned as test subjects and trained to become soldiers. We've all experienced them, where you, and three or more players, get thrown into an arena, blow up a bunch of blocks, and eventually, try to blow each other up.

Bomberman Live Review

bomberman 360 review

And Battlefest introduces a few new modes, including Capture the Flag and one called Bankroll, which takes the Counter-Strike model of earning money for kills and using it between rounds to buy better gear and applies it to Bomberman. Equipped with armored battle suits, the subjects must fight for survival and eliminate each other to determine who will become the Ultimate Human Weapon. Unleash your fury in ongoing tournaments to prove you're the best. These include Capture the Crown a mode introduced in the WiiWare game , in which there's a single crown in the arena and the player who wears it for the greatest amount of time wins. As they all go around the room making their excuses, a man named Buggler announces himself to the world and challenges team Bomberman outright with his own team of five Dastardly Bombers—who promptly begin wreaking havoc at different outposts all over the galaxy. There is no conspiracy, market ploy, or outstanding flaw with Bomberman Act Zero.

Bomberman: Act Zero for Xbox 360

bomberman 360 review

The online might falter, but this is how Bomberman's surely meant to be played; jostling for position on the sofa while chipping through blocks as you size up your quarry, devouring power-ups as you go. As someone who played more than a few entries in the series on several different Nintendo consoles, this was an exciting surprise, made all the better by a game that actually delivers a decent-quality maze-busting experience. And it has been working for all these years. If you can defeat them in single combat, then the Dastardly Bomber transforms into a massive map-filling mechanical monstrosity. Old-school gamers have been extolling the virtues of Bomberman for ages. It's simple, it's fun, it works.

Super Bomberman R review

bomberman 360 review

The campaign can be a bit of a grind, but has enough surprises and enjoyable moments to keep pulling you through—especially if playing co-op with a friend. It was super easy to pick up and play within minutes and people of any age will love it! I haven't got past Stage 15 myself. The best multiplayer fun in Bomberman is against friends anyway, and that remains true here in Super Bomberman R. Each level has distinct features that separate it from the rest of the pack. Bomberman Live sheds all that for a return to what makes the series so great. Take control of your customized Bomberman and use your bombs to knock out your opponents, discover upgrades, and dominate the arena.

bomberman 360 review

Super Bomberman R does a great job of delivering on that nostalgia, leaning on the Switch's ability to host local multiplayer on the go. Up to 8 players can engage in frantic battles for survival online through Xbox Live and earn points to become the ultimate weapon on the World Rankings. Having said that, online mode is the only enjoyable mode. The stages are composed of rusted metal and drabness. Playing with other gamers online has it's many drawbacks which become immediately apparent in a fiercely competitive game like this one. The music tries to sound badass with its grunge guitars and rave undertones but ends up sounding generic and obnoxious. As matches progress, the action gets crazier and more dangerous; power-ups result in bigger and bigger explosions, and you acquire new types of bombs capable of rocketing across the screen and filling entire rows or columns of the arena with their explosive force.

bomberman 360 review

The only disappointment for me is the 3d graphics that actually make it harder to see clearly what is going on and actually resulted in a few untimely deaths for my friends and I. Throw in the lack of offline multiplayer which is absolutely inexcusable for a Bomberman game , and you've got one of the worst games of 2006. While there have been reports of connectivity issues at launch, I can attest that at least during my personal time online over the past few days, I had no problem connecting with other players. The controls are tight, too. As for the actual game itself there are two modes. If there's one word to describe the graphics in Act Zero it's depressing.

bomberman 360 review

I don’t know why these companies think it's such a great idea to offer unskipable scenes. Meanwhile, Plasma Bomber becomes Judge Gwinbee, a flying mech with machine guns that you have to blow up as it flies by. Sound doesn't add or detract from this gameplay experience for the most part. One arena is set on the deck of a pirate ship, for instance, where the stormy seas can toss bombs from side to side, lending an element of dangerous unpredictability to play, while blasts of energy in the time tunnel arena can speed you up or slow you down tremendously for a short time. Bomberman puts on his robe and wizard hat. I found this mode to be rather boring, as the excitement of controlling the cart in an effort to seek revenge on the player who removed me from the game was a large part of the mode's appeal. It's depressing to see one of gaming's cheerful colourful characters turn to the dark side for no reason at all.
