Hurry! The universe is counting on you!

Official UK Nintendo Magazine (issue 123)
The one-player adventure is slow-paced with poor level design and laying bombs to blow up trees and rocks is nowhere near as fun as the old battle games.
But if you're a fan of the old Bomberman titles, this is worth picking up for the multiplayer games alone. [...] Our score would be much lower with these mate-bashing treats.
Dated December 2002, awarded 7 out of 10. Also called "Bomberman Heroes" for some reason?
