Both the graphics and sound in Bomberman Max are more than adequate. Each of the themed planets has its own graphical look, and the soundtrack gets the job done nicely even though it lacks a bit of variety. The single-player game will provide a lot of value, as you probably won't complete all the stages in one car or plane trip. If you can deal with the lack of a traditional Bomberman multiplayer mode, the title makes a good candidate for your next portable game.

So, is this the ultimate Bomberman experience for the Game Boy? For the hardcore gamer, absolutely. Bomberman MAX offers the best the series has had to offer over the last dozen or so years, all while adding some nice extras that make a Bomberman game presentable for the year 2000. The more casual consumer, however, should be a little wary, as you're really getting half a game for the price of one. Also, solo gamers will be frustrated at being unable to complete the game singlehandedly. For latter types of game players, I recommend either Wario Blast or Bomberman GB. For the former, I give Bomberman MAX my enthusiastic endorsement
