Bomberman is back… but not in a very good way. Super Bomberman R is a Nintendo Switch launch game and to completely honest, it’s not a very good game. In fact, it’s not good at all in my opinion. If you’re looking for a Switch game to pick up alongside The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild then I don’t recommend you get this game. It’s a very disappointing game in my opinion and it’s definitely not worth the price.
First, let’s talk about the graphics. I know I say this in every single review but graphics isn’t everything. That being said the graphics in this game aren’t great in my opinion. The level design isn’t too good and the textures are very weak. I know the Nintendo Switch isn’t the strongest console to date but it does have some gorgeous looking games like The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey. Overall they could have done a much better job with the graphics.
This isn’t really important but just to note the voice acting in this game is awful. Like really bad. Just like the graphics the voice acting could have been better. The music in this game isn’t great either. A lot of the tracks are very forgetful.
Now let’s talk about the gameplay. The single player is tedious in my opinion. There is nothing exciting about the single player in this game. Compared to past Bomberman games the single player in this game is disappointing. Playing with friends via multiplayer can be exciting for a couple of minutes but after a while, it can become very repetitive and overall boring. And when I say multiplayer I mean Local multiplayer. The Online mode in this game is brutal. The Lag can be unbearable and overall can be an absolute pain and can be very frustrating.
Earlier in the review, I mentioned the price. This game is too expensive and it’s not worth the high price tag in my opinion. Honestly, there isn’t enough content in this game to make it have such a high price tag. The controls in this game are also poor.
To be honest, Bomberman isn’t back. This game isn’t worth your time. Super Bomberman R is possibly one of the worst Bomberman games to date. Disappointing. Not recommended at all. Overall a complete mess. If you’re looking for a good Bomberman game I recommend you play Bomberman Live.
Bomberman isn’t back. Super Bomberman R is a complete mess. The Online mode is very laggy and overall this game is very disappointing. Definitely not worth the price.
