Bomberman II -- Hudson Soft

This three player action game, now available for the NES, is the sequal to an old classic. Bomberman II retains many elements of the original puzzle-maze game.

The purpose of Bomberman II baffles me. There are little improvements from the first, and I see little point in spending that much. Cute for die hards, but other wise a little too expensive for the mainstream.

An average sequel to an average game for the NES. The graphics were good, and there were some variety in the enemies. The music was not very well scored. There really was not much gameplay involved. I think there should have been more power ups though. It got old rather quickly with no bosses, and a really lame story line. Like I said average.

It is nice to see this game coming out on other systems now. There is definitely nothing new or exciting here, but this game is great as a party game. There is really not much more I can say.

It's exactly like all of the other versions of Bomberman, but other than that, it's okay. The graphics are pretty good, particularly for 8-bit. I really like the three-player option.
