It's been twenty years since Bomberman Hero came out, and I think it was high time to start a N64 Bomberman-related thread. Discuss Bomberman 64, Bomberman Hero, Second Attack, and the JP Bomberman 64.

Bomberman 64 was a huge holiday game for me.  We used to go to my cousins' every year and they were mostly insufferable dicks but one other kid and I used to hunker around the N64 for hours and play Bomberman 64.  It was a real bright spot of the season which was mostly both of my parents working massive amounts over overtime and a lot of snow.  I still get the urge to play when it snows.


I didn't get into any other iterations before or after the n64 era as much and when it went back to 2D I was a little sad.  I really enjoyed having lots of depth in the levels and I find the grid kinda boring after it.

Bomberman Hero is the only Bomberman game on the N64 that's anything worth its salt. The other two are wayyy too slow, have odd stage design, sub-optimal camera angles, and areas tend to drag on causing a bit of boredom. Not to mention the gimped multiplayer mode.

Hero has issues but it's a much faster action game. It has great graphics, better stage design than the other two, a good soundtrack, and was generally more fun. Even the intro attempts to get you pumped up.

I would say however that the N64 games in general weren't the best games in the series, even during that time period, but Bomberman Hero is worth at least a look

I'll say this much for you, I like your taste in games on N64 if you were into Bomberman Hero.  That was one solidly done platforming game, and it wasn't all wooden and stiff like Bomberman 64 and Bomberman 64 2.  I had a lot of fun with that game back in the day.  I had it and Bomberman 64, didn't have the sequel until within the last 10 years but I didn't keep it in the long run, money looked nicer to me eventually. :)

I liked all but the JP BM64, which is classic 2D Bomberman for the N64. To tell you guys the truth, Hero gets way too much shit. As for the other two, they had their shortcomings, but they were fun for the most part. Plus, BM64 and Hero's English dubbing was surprisingly good for the time.
