"After stumbling across the atrocity that was Bomberman: Act Zero, I decided to refresh my faith in the light-hearted universe of Bomberman 64: The Second Attack. Bomberman was never supposed to be gritty or serious, it is supposed to be the realization of a childish dream to blow things in an exaggerated fashion.
Not considered a graphical powerhouse in any sense, Bomberman: The Second Attack relied on a cartoonish charm and semi-difficult puzzles to keep its audience entertained. Plus, the inclusion of Pommy, an squishy sidekick that helps Bomberman in his adventures, adds a little depth to the single player mode."
