    If you don't own a Switch and enjoy Bomberman then Super Bomberman R Shiny Edition is certainly worth picking up. Even though it doesn't improve everything from the original release, there's so much content here that you're bound to have a blast.

    Super Bomberman R for the PlayStation 4 comes with all the available content that has been released to the other platforms, accompanied with an exclusive skin for the console and guarantees that players are going to have a blast while playing with the many available modes the game offers. Previous owners of the Switch version should be careful, though, as this version does not offer any new content, thus lacking the ability to give a re-purchase incentive to potential buyers.

    Despite some weak points, Super Bomberman R, is a funny and madly entrance for both classic players and casual ones that are playing a Bomberman for the first time. I recommend you to play it with your friends or for those moments when you need a break and just have fun. The game doesn't pretend to be something else but a Bomberman, and that's why It works.

    Super Bomberman R is very much a Bomberman game. It does little new for the franchise but excels in what the franchise is known for, which is being a fantastically moreish multiplayer free-for-all that always begs for one more go.

    Super Bomberman R makes its grand debut on PlayStation 4 without any significant changes. The fun part of the game stays with its story mode as well as the local multiplayer, due to the fact that there are barely any active online sessions. The gameplay, albeit simple and effective, feels old-fashioned and it becomes repetitive after some time.

    While future Bomberman games have the potential to assert themselves as more lengthy and strategy-demanding titles deserving of a mind-blowing rating, the current release really is just lighthearted and fun … and that’s just fine.

    Super Bomberman R is living among a wave of re-imagines of classic titles and often feels too traditional for its own good.

    Super Bomberman R there’s not much here
    Super Bomberman R is a puzzle game featuring a 3 hour long story mode and not much else…
    The game tells the story of the bombermen and ladies setting out to stop black hole and the 5 Dastardly bombers...
    you can play the game on multiple difficulty settings...
    The campaign takes places across 5 different worlds, each dedicated to one of the dastardly bombers... here you’ll be clearing challenges to work your way to the boss of that world...
    These challenges can vary from defeat all of the enemies, to find hidden keys, lead the stranded bombers to safety, and throw switches...
    And none of this is really challenging or engaging…
    it’s all sortve mindless…
    you start by choosing your character at the start of a chapter and you just drop bombs... these bombs will destroy objects in your place as well as take out enemies, you’ll find pickups to increase your speed for example or the amount of bombs you’re able to carry and drop…
    but you use these rules of bomb dropping and enemy slaying to complete these tasks…
    and none of the levels really get too challenging to solve or even though provoking.. There are a few... especially in the ice levels towards the end... but they are far too few and far in between... I would’ve liked having to use my brain more like I did in these ice levels as I’m sliding around like the caves in a Pokémon game… but for the most part all 3 hours of this game really remains the same... so it for the most part just feels like you’re going through the motions...
    it is possible to die, and you will a lot from blowing yourself up or enemies getting you, but you are able to spend gems to continue… gems earned both from completing chapters as well as in multiplayer…
    and at the end of these chapters there is again a boss battle.. These are probably the best moments of the game where you’re trying to trap your opponent and hit them bit ha bomb to then go against them in their final form to unlock the next stage…. These moments before the final show down do offer a bit of challenge and are better than the boss battle show downs themselves...
    Outside of the campaign there is a multiplayer mode where you’re facing 4 opponents to try and take each other out... be the last bomber standing…
    you can play locally as well as online, but I found it to be impossible to find enough players online to get any matches either ranked or unranked.. So unfortunately bomber man doesn’t realistically go beyond its 3 hour campaign which is a shame... sure you can grind for cash to unlock the many characters... but for what?
    Online is a ghost town.
    I give Super Bomber man R
