We all know that Saturn got the best Bomberman, but how about the games released for the SNES?

imo 3 has the funnest single-player while 5 probably has best MP.

Of the classic ones, Super Bomberman 2 is my favorite.

I loved the mushroom stage where you could hop around.

Overall Bomberman 64 is my favorite in the series. Its so good. The music, the battle mode, and there is nothing like adventure mode. It is such a unique take on 3D platformers. Post Mario 64 everything was trying to be like that, but Bomberman 64 went in a different direction.

God I love it.

Super 4 is pretty fun with all the mounts and (unbalanced) character special abilities.
Ayy, 64 is my favorite too. I always found it sad that they truly never tried to replicate it again. Don't get me wrong, TSA was good but it went into a different direction rather than expanding the mechanics from 64. Then there's Generation which in attempt to streamline shit just feels boring and safe, and because of that it's a very forgettable game.

Mega Bomberman supports only to 4 players, has less colorful graphics, and worse music. There's no reason to play it over 94 unless you really want to play Bomberman on your Genesis. Super 3, while similar, is a more of a spiritual successor to 94 rather than a port.

>> No.4137745

>It's a /vr/ pretends that emulation doesn't exist episode.

>> No.4137753

Mega is an oddly botched port. the graphics have colors and details removed, animations are missing and other small changes that add up to make Mega a shadow of what '94 is.

Which makes no sense. There's nothing about '94 that the MD couldn't handle. It's strange that the port was flubbed so bad

>> No.4139487

The thing I hate about 94 is that everytime you clear a stage the blocks turn to coins and you have to wait 10 seconds until you move on to the next level. Lives are useless in that game due to the password system.
But other than that it's a great game.

I only had one multi-tap for the Saturn in those days, so it was a 7 player plus 3 bots for the 10 player widescreen map.

It was fun adding some chaos to the field. I wish there were more map variations than the 1 for the 10-player mode. That's why more often we all opted for the 7-player plus 1 bot 8 player mode instead for the variety of maps.

Yeah, all my friends no longer play Bomberman with me. They've all moved on and play Overwatch or Bioware RPGs exclusively, so even if I get the Switch with the new game, they'd rather stay at home. They all abandoned the Bomberman series, but I guess if they get drunk enough, I will at least have the controllers ready for a go.

There's a lot of Bomberman games that change the formula. Just to name a few, Quest and Tournament are RPG-Zelda clones. 2 DS/Custom Battler has you fitting Bomberman with various types armor to raise stats and gain special abilities. Saturn Fight!! is Bomberman played in a strange isometric view. And of course the 3D-adventure style games like 64 and TSA.

Loved 1-3, though it was a shame that 2 didn't have co-op option in the normal mode, and its AI in battle mode was horrendous. Part 4 was super weird and short, and it reused too much stuff. 5 was good and had a great battle mode.

I mostly stick to Power Bomberman nowadays, but I still revisit all the SNES parts every so often. They still hold up well.
