Bomberman XBLA video

Bomberman XBLA video

After the totally disastrous Bomberman Act Zero last year, it looks like Hudson finally got their priorities right and announced what made sense since the beginning: The good old Bomberman for Xbox Live Arcade. This first video shows a Bomberman like we all love it, fast and cute.

Ive always wondered if I was the only one who really liked bomberman act zero. Sure I like the old games too, but it was about gameplay to me and act zero had the same basic gameplay. Aside from no local multi, a feature I never use anyway and a couple of missing specials(ladders, etc..) the game was identical and a blast online.

Oh well, its good to see we get more bomberman and it will be the classic style that other people like. Ill be passing on it though myself as I already have AZ.

:o download snes9x, and play the snes roms, pinacle of the series

as for this, horrible graphics, wouldve preffered HD 2d visuals, and will this beat the sega saturn 10 player mode? i doubt it, depends how many players they offer, looks too much like atomic bomberman for my liking, and thats a bad thing, very bad...

Pacman is nothing towards bomberman :) In this you need to think more and darn fun with friends I can say :) You haven't played this game if you haven't played it with friends.

Man use to have so fun with friends and this title many years ago in the day of snes era.

bomberman zero is easily the worst game for the 360

heh, well to each their own I guess. I prefer act zero over games like gears of war, guitar hero 2, and oblivion. I certainly spent more time playing AZ then I did those games.(Own them all ofcourse) When I think of trash games, I think of tetris:grand master ace(jpn version of tetris) or guitar hero 2(yeah, I just think its a lame gimmick as well as it costing me $165 to import it and me not having any fun playing it.)

lol what you mean 'that wasnt bomberman' ?
the dreamcast verison and the snes versions are the most superior of all. In fact, i prefer the dreamcast version and the introduction of the 3d bombermen, and this looks more of the dreamcast image. definately gna download this.

Hmpf, play Saturn Bomberman before you make a comment about superiority.
