Le jeu semble assez fun, la réalisation technique soignée et les courses ne manquent ni de rapidité ni de rebondissements. Si vous aimez le style, lancez-vous.
If I had to put all of the "kart" games into perspective, I would probably say that Bomberman Fantasy Race falls behind both Mario Kart and Rockman Battle and Chase. However, Bomberman Fantasy Race is still quite a good time, and should absolutely not be overlooked due to its few ugly points. It might lack a bit in the graphics and control departments, but it makes up for them with great ideas like the triangle jump and the dash, as well as with the bomb-throwing mayhem that comes with the Bomberman name. If you like cute racing games and want a good time for one or two players, Bomberman Fantasy Race will probably suit you. Best of all, it has been picked up by Atlus for a US release. I'm very glad to see that someone actually notices cool import releases like this one, and brings them over to the US for everyone else to try out. I wouldn't reccomend importing this one unless you're a die-hard Bomberman fan - wait for Atlus' english release in November.

Om Hudson hade lagt ned lite mer tid på att försöka kombinera racinggenren med bombardemanget på ett lite mer sublimt sätt hade det här kunnat smälla högt. Men de brände sin chans.
Although it lacks a speedy adrenaline rush, and it doesn't push technical limits to the top, Bomberman Fantasy Race is a good time. No, you don't get to butcher monkies with a red-hot poker, and you certainly don't get to hit Leonardo DiCaprio in the neck with a foldable chair, but you'll enjoy the game nonetheless. And why not? Hell, it's Bomberman we're talking about after all! Bomberman's games is fun, nuff said.

Erg enthousiast ben ik niet over dit spel. De graphics zijn niet geweldig en zonder het bommengeweld is dit maar een tweederangs racegame. Het meest positieve dat ik over dit spel kan zeggen, is dat ik telken van Ed kon winnen, en dat is me bij geen enkel ander racespel gelukt.
The undeniable urge to race has struck many a platform- and puzzle-game hero. It hit Mega Man in the Japanese release Rockman: Battle & Chase and Square's cutesy-cutesy Chocobo in Chocobo Racing. It's even happened to Mario twice now. Since Bomberman has long been known to play with fire and explosives, it was really just a matter of time before he added the track to his long list of vices.
Produit léger et vite programmé, il ne présente pas de défauts majeurs mais souffre d'un manque de profondeur certain. Rigolo une après-midi pour deux joueurs, quelques jours seuls... mais pas de quoi l'acheter neuf au prix fort, quoi...

So basically, you just paid for a game with one stinking track, one Looie and one Tierra, plus no chance of ever winning! Thank God I don’t believe in getting angry over stupid things or else I would be poop-my-pants enraged right now. If you are the kind of person who enjoys having your eyes jabbed with a hot poker, then this is the game for you.
The most annoying bit is the racing control system. For some reason the programmers thought it would be fun to make players repeatedly (or intermittently) press forward on the D-Pad or Dual Shock pad to speed up. It isn’t. At all. You’re so busy trying to persuade your ungainly ride to go in the right direction that often you forget to use the speed up button at all. Fantasy Race does include a split-screen option and a pretty neat wagering system, but there really is nothing that even vaguely stimulate the senses; there’s more excitement in a morgue. Come back RunningWild, all is forgiven.
Mega Fun
Sorry Hudson, aber Fantasy Race löst bei mir das gleiche Gefühl aus wie ein Sylvester-Knaller, der nicht explodiert. Mal ganz abgesehen von der schwachen technischen Umsetzung (kantige Spielfiguren, Lens-Flare-Effekte, die diesen Namen nicht verdienen, nervige Sounduntermalung), setzt BFS auch in spielerischer Hinsicht wenig Akzente. Der kleine Streckenumfang wirkt sich vielleicht nur beim Einspieler-Modus aus, die schwammige Steuerung der Reittiere und ein stellenweise unüberlegtes Streckendesign minimieren hingegen auch den Mehrspieler-Spaß.
