The Bomberman series has been delighting fans with its stunning multiplayer action since 1983. The premise of the game is simple: guide your chosen Bomberman around a maze-like play area using timed bombs to open walkways and take out players or CPU-controlled adversaries. Super Bomberman R retains these core elements but places them with updated visuals that offer greater detail while still remaining faithful to the series' origins.
Super Bomberman R makes full use of the Nintendo Switch system capabilities, which enables gamers to play wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. Super Bomberman R offers a 'Battle' mode where up to eight players are dropped within a maze until the 'last man standing' is declared the winner. There is also a 'Story' mode where one to two players work cooperatively to clear a series of 50 stages in order to save the galaxy.
All key Bomberman elements return for the Nintendo Switch title, including useful items found within the destructible areas of each maze. Removing a wall will often reveal a power-up to extend the range of the explosion or endow the user's Bomberman with a useful skill. These include faster movement, the ability to kick or throw bombs, and more. Thus, as players gain ever more devastating capabilities, they must use all their skill and ingenuity to ensure their opponents get caught in a blast while avoiding its fiery touch!

Sadly, this modern-day version has not met my expectations. Please don’t misunderstand me. There is a lot of fun to be had from this version, but it’s got several problems, which significantly detract from the fun.
First, let’s start with the things I do like. The 8-player battle mode, both online and local play is a huge draw to me. I Love it. I also like the story mode with the massive boss fights. The intro and cut sequences with the big, bold cartoon animations are great fun too.
The things I don’t like. The controls feel sluggish and unrefined. It’s desperately difficult to plant a bomb and then run around a tight 90-degree corner on an isometric playing field when the controls are unbalanced. It’s frustrating to the point where its distracting me from the enjoyment of an otherwise good game.
The other things I don’t like are the in-game character voice acting. They are corny and in my opinion don’t add any value. There is also no option to turn them off.
And finally, the price. There is nothing particularly new in this version to warrant a whopping £60 price tag. The game is good and has some nice touches, but this would have been bettered positioned with a sub £30 price point.
Verdict: Fun, but has problems. Bomberman aficionados will love it, but will probably feel a little short changed with the hefty price tag. Improve the controls, put an option on the voices and reduce the price and this average game becomes standout.
However this game was one of my favourite childhood games and it offers a fantastic nostalgic multi-player experience. I would highly recommend it for multiplayer purposes.
Online still needs some bugs ironing out as well. I'm still going to play it, but it'll never be as good as the xbox live bomberman. Shame really.
I am a huge multiplayer Bomberman fan and I was so glad it got released on the Switch. I have to admit, however, that the controls do not feel that smooth. There seems to be some input lag on the controls, which is crucial for a Bomberman game. You will get lots of accidental deaths.
Online matches sometimes work great, other times it's just impossible to play due to huge lag.
Overall, it's a great addition for the Switch, and hopefully Konami will fix these early issues.
However, as a single player it is okay if a little repetitive.
Online play is okay but could have been so much better too.
The story is slow and boring with you battling against predictable AI without any time limit. The multiplayer suffers from even more movement/bomb delay which prevents any high level play or tactics. I've yet to even mention the non game-play related issues such as the cringe inducing voice acting or the customisation options that make this look like a £5 game.
I'm a massive fan of Bomberman and have played a huge amount of titles, this is the worst one I've ever played.
