Silent Bomber es, por méritos propios, uno de los mejores juegos arcade de PSOne. Ofrece una jugabilidad fiable y precisa, unos gráficos realmente buenos y mucha diversión. Sus puntos negativos (aunque tampoco son algo grave) son su machacona banda sonora (a excepción de un par de temas) y un doblaje en castellano no malo, pero sí algo soso. Y también ese combate final que concluye la aventura, que parece que lo programaron con la intención de sacarnos de quicio. Pero a pesar de todos estos puntos (que no son más que minucias, porque no existe el juego perfecto), Silent Bomber es todo un poderío de juego que no merece ser ignorado si lo encontráis abandonado en alguna tienda de segunda mano. Muy, pero que muy recomendable.

Silent Bomber succeeds because it is built around one of the tightest control systems to grace a PlayStation game. Movement and the accurate placing of bombs soon become second nature and the sheer number of on-screen foes keeps it moving at a fair old pace. The downside of such intense action is that a question mark hangs over its longevity, but such is the feeling of satisfaction when beating a major boss that this pales into insignificance. The highest recommendation I can give Silent Bomber is that I played it so much it made my thumb hurt. And I can't remember the last time a game did that...
What happens when you take Metal Gear Solid, Bomberman, Trap Gunner, and Soukyugurentai and lock them in a room with a bottle of wine and three loaves of bread? In about nine months you get Silent Bomber, an unnaturally kick-ass action game from the unlikeliest of sources - Bandai, a company better known for churning out Gundam game after Gundam game.
Silent Bomber may not be an incredibly deep game, but what it does, it does well. Like a blockbuster action movie, Silent Bomber provides plenty of big explosions and mindless fun. If you only play RPGs or strategy games, this isn't for you, but everyone else out there is sure to enjoy it.
Un titre de bonne facture qui se caractérise par un excellent game play et une action incessante. Son concept original lui permet de sortir du lot de ses petits camarades pour notre plus grand plaisir. Un titre qui en dépit d’un faible niveau d’I.A devrait s’assurer une belle carrière.
In the ever-increasing PlayStation library, fewer original games are being delivered to our doorsteps. What's weird is that a decreasing amount of good shooters -- once the core staple of PlayStation games -- are landing in PlayStation's waters. By year's end we'll be so overwhelmed by licensed games and sequels that any game, even remotely innovative, could wow us. So it's no wonder that Bandai's Silent Bomber is such a surprisingly fresh game. Who would have though that a rather tired anime "shooter" like this could have made us so happy?

Silent Bomber is de bomb! Een inkoppertje natuurlijk maar het is ook waar. Het is misschien een simpel spel kwa gameplay maar als shoot'em ups je shit zijn dan zul je Silent Bomber zeker kunnen waarderen.
Mega Fun
Silent Bomber, eine Mischung aus Metal Gear Solid und Bomberman? So ein Schmarrn! Silent Bomber ist ein stinknormaler Shooter aus der Draufsichtperspektive. Hintergrundgeschichte und Handling sind gut gelungen. Man kann dem Spiel bestimmt in keiner Weise den Unterhaltungswert in den ersten Stunden absprechen, aber nach einiger Zeit wirken die sich wiederholenden Elemente doch etwas ermüdend. Ihr rennt durch die Gegend, platziert eure Bomben und sonstige Spreng-Goodies in die Gegnerschaft und versucht zu überleben. Viel mehr passiert einfach nicht. Dass besiegte Zwischengegner im Bonus-Spiel als Charaktere anwählbar sind, rechtfertigt für uns auch kein höheres Rating.

Bandais Silent Bomber är långt ifrån ett mästerverk men har ändå ett upplägg som bitvis tilltalar. Om det hade funnits lite mer tåga och energi hos utvecklarna hade spelet kanske lyckats att klättra upp en bit på betygsskalan. För konceptet är det inget fel på.
