    In a Minute Review - Bomberman: Act Zero

    There's nothing nice to say about Hudson soft Co's Bomberman: Act Zero. The graphics are disgusting, the music is bad, the art design eschews the cutesy aesthetic of the original and the single player game lasts 100 levels and has no checkpoints. The online is the only redeeming feature of the title- if you liked playing against Japanese players and the year is 2007. These days, I'm sure Bomberman: Act Zero is dead, dead, dead.

    For the uninitiated, Bomberman: Act Zero puts you in control of a character that uses various types of bombs to break through walls in a gridlike level- in an effort to kill the other players before they kill you. The game throws various power-ups at you to make things interesting. Essentially, every level is the same box with walls placed in various configurations.

    You'd get the same level of repetition by playing Mindsweeper five thousand times. If your an achievement junky, you will have to be either incredibly good at Bomberman or a smart and dedicated online booster. I earned many of the hardest online achievements by boosting against a second gamertag on my spare Xbox. Without doing this, the long streak achievements are impossible.

    In summary, Bomberman: Act Zero is a game for those that have a bad game fetish. It is probably going to go down as the ugliest title of this console generation.

    CyberneticHFXYou are highly wrong. It is the greatest of all competitive video games. Come to the battle, and then realize how the revolutionized version of Bomberman is being played by today. Its official teaser video does not show any of it - they play like people on possibly just 5% skill level - that one was also too wrong. There are so many different strategies - the media and the rest of the world does not know about it! I have taught a crowd of people to the elite skill level - and today that awesome video game is being played by my people and some other people, more frequently since I am running it by using my gaming time at around 50% for it. There also take place - eight player game sessions! That video game had an aweful marketing and advertising - the media response is deadly negative and ridiculous, due to stupid testing by people without skill - or nobody has showed them how this masterpiece works. Xbox Live Acvhievements does not matter when a game is experienced on such intensity like here - once you have mastered enough elite strategies! Again: The naive people that spread negativity concerning Bomberman At Zero - are so wrong - now come in contact with me, and I will make you understand what I do!

    Fluster Zerobomberman isn't that bad. This is no different than other bomberman games, only with a more mature look. It isn't glitchy, it is a grind but still 10x better than quake, pgr 3, ridge racer 6, and kameo which is what it was competing with. I don't know why this game has such a bad rep.

    TRU x JEDIWow the guy who wrote this review is a hater. The game isn't bad it's just challenging. As for Smurf Mcgurf who commented above me here, your a fat loner with a low gamerscore, no friends, & a terrible completion rate so leave the comments to the real gamers buddy. laugh

    Drunk 18yr GirlI love this game, it's my favorite bomberman game as it feels way more competitive. The only complaint i have is that there is no local games allowed, just online or single player.

    I had this game on my previous account and it's terrible! Ridger Racer 6 was amazing and is still one of the best Ridge Racers to date if not the best. Kameo was also excellent and pure fun. Theres no comparison between these (and) PGR3 to Bomberman Act: shiiiiite.
