Topic: Bomberman 93 + Blast + 94?

I purchased Bomberman '93 (TG-16) and Blast (WiiWare) in the past. When friends comes home, we generally play the recent Bomberman Blast, although sometimes we go back to '93. Having this two Bomberman games, how many recomendable is to purchase another one like '94? I am in doubt because '94 has an score of 9 in Nintendo Life, while the others has an 8.

I am a real Bomberman fan, but I am not rich and I don't know if keep my points for another game. The real dilemma is that I don't own many multiplayer games (the Wii is mine!).

Thanks in advance.

Bomberman '94 is pretty good but you have already a good multiplayer and a good online-Bomberman.

I think there are many other good multiplayer games you could try out. What kind of game do you want?

Yeah, if you've got '93 and Blast I would get something else, unless you REALLY like Bomberman. I've got '93 and Live, so I've held off getting '94 for now.

First of all, thanks for both: I keep my points.

SKTTR: I have a lot of games downloaded, but Bomberman is one of the best to play with friends, and there is my doubt. I don't search for more multiplayer, because I think I got all the bests now available according my preferences. I wait for future releases. Thanks again: 700 points reserved.

I get the Bomberman games for the single-player campaign and that's substantially different from Bomberman '93, so if you're into the single-player game I'd say it's worth it. Incidentally there's a disc version of Bomberman Blast in Japan that includes a single player mode as well as the online multiplayer game...

Mmmm... I really consider it in future when VC releases stop attract attention to me: I like the single-player mode from Bomberman '93. But as you know, we are in the heart of one Hanabi Festival, and today I download StarTropics II (first was hardest, but I love challenge) and the new tales for Final Fantasy IV: The After Years.

Anyway, thanks, Sean.

I have all three, and honestly, I barely play any of them. Fortunately, I've since learned to control my impulse buying.

I prefer Blast over 93, but 94 gives it a run for its money. 94 has the Roos, which I don't think ever came to the US.

I've played a few of the Japanese-only Bombermen on a friend's emulator, and it's a mystery why these games didn't make it over here or why elements from these games haven't carried over into more current Bomberman games. I like the mounts, whether Roos or other creatures in later games. And I like the characters with special abilities, though I forget which game that was in.

If you're tight on cash though, I'd stick with Blast. It has better presentation, better items, more options, and perhaps most importantly...

It's in English. I can't believe how lazy Hudson is, not even translating a short menu system. The two or three times I played multi-player in 94, it took me about five minutes or more to figure out how to start the game. Even if 94 is the better game, that puts a damper on the rest of the experience for me, especially if I want to change just one of the options after and don't know which one it is.

On the subject of single-player, I'm not a huge fan of Bomberman in this regard. I liked the single-player for Bomberman 64 but barely played any of the others. 94 is supposed to have a good one, I've heard.

Come on, friends,

Great summary. Now, I don't know what to do: Ross, Japanese, Blast better, multi-player vs. single-player... Seriously: thanks a lot. Bomberman 94 seem a game to be worthy of his fame. Now is completely annotate in my wish list.

I saw a disc version of "Bomberman Wii" (title change?) in EU. Is that what you call the disc version?
And I thought I read somewhere that the online mode in Bomberman Wii is compatible with the online mode in "Bomberman Blast"...
Like the Japanese WiiWare game "World Chess" that is compatible with the EU disc release of "Wii Chess".

Haha, sorry to complicate things for you. If you want the simple answer, I'd stick with Blast.

But if you do get 94, I think you'll enjoy it. You could probably better spend those points on a game in a series you don't own yet, though.

The only Bomberman game for the Wii on disc in Europe that I'm aware of is Bomberman Land which is like a mini-game collection. The game I'm talking about is called simply Bomberman in Japan.

Too many Bomberman games for me to keep up with! I wish I had known that. I almost got Hero when it came out but didn't want to since I already had the first 64 one.
