In a departure from the usual puzzle-based bomb action gameplay inherent in the series, Hudson's latest take on Bomberman features four different games. Selecting from the seven different Bomberman characters included in the title, you can play through baseball, golf and tennis games, each with exhibition and tournament options. A new 'life' mode tied to the PlayStation 2 system clock provides a dynamic view of your character's day-to-day activities, and side challenges allow you to customize his or her appearance. Naturally, the traditional Bomberman game can be experienced through five different 'battle' modes for up to four players. Known in Japan as Bomberman Battles.
