When it comes down to GameCube titles Bomberman Generation was a great game that does not get the type of praise that it deserves. Bomberman Generation was developed by Game Arts & Hudson Soft and released for the Nintendo Gamecube in 2002. This game was released shortly after its prequel Bomberman 64: The Second Attack which was released for the Nintendo 64 in countries outside of Japan in 2000. Bomberman Generations is good game to play if you are a fan of the older games for the NES or the SNES. This game is especially fun if you are new to the Bomberman series since the developers utilized a different style of gameplay that was different from what many are used to in the older games. The cel-shaded graphics and visual design is one of the many things that instantly stands out when it comes down to Bomberman Generations. The graphics for Bomberman Generations is reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker game which was also released for the Nintendo Gamecube in 2002.
Not only does Bomberman Generation feature six exciting 3D worlds that people can play through but it also has a variety of different game modes. Bomberman Generation features game modes such as: Revenge Battle, Coin Battle, Reversi Battle, Dodge Battle and Standard Battle. The multiplayer modes in this game were not fun to play if you had friends but it also added to the overall replay value of Bomberman Generation. In terms of sales Bomberman Generation may have fell below the expectations of many people who enjoyed the game. But the amount of worldwide sales does not subtract from the overall quality of the game itself. By the early 00’s the Bomberman series was starting to get old and has noticeably been declining in worldwide sales since 80’s. Even though, the series was not as popular as it was during the 80’s and early 90’s Bomberman Generation was a 3D action adventure game that is generally overlooked by many and was worth playing for the Nintendo Gamecube in the 00’s.
