I'm loving this game. There are so many stages and accessories and stuff to unlock. But yeah, the first phase of the first story mode boss was nigh-on impossible to beat. The second phase was way easier.

Okay I just had my first lag-free online game with four players.

When you land into a lag-free online game this is pure Bomberman bliss. I forget I have other games I want to get to, the game is a riot when stars align.

Played the first 2 worlds with my brother, the control felt weird all along, even more on boss battles, I guess I'm too used to Super Bomberman SNES.

Let's talk about those boss battle, my god they are chaotic when playing with someone else, not saying it's bad and had some laughs, especially on the second boss.

I picked this up purely because people rave about Bomberman localplayer and I needed something I can play with friends for longer than Snipperclips. Assuming I'm not too fussed that I paid $50 for it, is consensus that just as a game its alright?

People seem to really like the multi but think for the price it isn't quite a complete enough package. Since my Wii U is getting packed up I'm hoping it and SnipperClips are good enough for a few game nights before MK8 Deluxe comes out.

As a single player experience the Bomberman series has always been "okay". If you can get 4 people together there are few experiences that are as chaotic and fun as Bomberman, and this game is no exception. It's not the best in the series but it's definitely a riot of a time if things get just right. Right now I'm spending most of my time online hoping for good lobbies and I've had decent luck so far. Whenever things get going it's great.

Isn't there input delay in local mode too? I don't have my game yet but I'm worried about the shape of the overall package.

Good to see they've acknowledge the problem. I just played a few really good, lag free matches and it just didn't feel as tight as the single player does. Definitely playable, but could be more responsive. I've really enjoyed what I've played of the game so far and really hope this issue is fixed quickly.

Haven't played any local multiplayer yet, but single player feels just fine and I don't feel any input lag.

First boss was a complete pain. I don't like the way the controls are. I haven't played any of the games past PS1 but why is the movement no longer smooth? It feels way different and much harder to be really precise.

The delay is making it super tough to enjoy but I am charmed as fuck by those animated cutscenes. Utter nonsense, I love it.

I'll wait for the patch before putting any more time into it, though.

Because it was a game made on a tight budget quickly using unity.

I did a little bit of local multiplayer and it didn't feel like there was lag.

After putting more time in it, it definitely shouldn't have been $50, but it's pretty fine as far as bomberman goes.

Well, I have 45 days to return my copy. Not opening unless I hear Konami improves the game.

A real shame, because Bomberman is a great and classic franchise. But, Konami has no respect for anything anymore.

Something I hadn't really thought about but makes sense.

I have to say I really do enjoy the game so far. Story in a game like this isn't something I care about but the cut scenes are really well done. It's the only game I picked up so I'll probably get through it quickly and sell it before the price bottoms out and grab Zelda.

I played a good bit of co-op campaign with a friend today, no regret, the game is awesome so far.

I think it's one of the very rare games I'd recommend using TruMotion, depending on the TV (LG B6 OLED here), since it's locked at 30 it gives it a nice feeling of 60fps.

Didn't try multi yet as I'm deep into Zelda.

Was never confirmed for download play so I'd say you are out of luck. You can do 4 players on table top mode or 8 players on the TV though.

£39.99 at TheGameCllection or £35 at Argos if you buy bundled with a switch. It'll drop soon enough.

How are the bots in local multiplayer? Probably not buying a second pair of joycons until Mario kart

It feels cheap, the core game is as good as ever but it's not as satisfying as I hoped. Now I played 3P with my girls, I'll be more positive after an 8P session with my friends.

Fair enough, not exactly the greatest way to revive a classic franchise after a long hiatus either way. Bomberman deserves better is all I'm saying.

I knew about all the problems before picking it up and figured it'd still be worth it to me because I love Bomberman and wanted some launch games that weren't Zelda, but I gotta say from the 10-15 minutes I spent with this game, feels like a total mess. Definitely a shame.

At first I was a bit confused that there was no infinite time limit option in multiplayer, but I've figured out why that is. There are some stages with multiple levels, and you need to hit switches to activate them. So if a couple of people get elevated to the higher level, and everyone on the lower level is dead (so the switches can't be activated to get the higher level back down), the people on the higher level are effectively stuck with no way to get down, and if they're separated from each other, a stalemate occurs. I've been in a couple of online matches where they get stuck and we've had to wait for the timer to run out/instadeath blocks to start falling. If there was no time limit, you'd be stuck forever.
