Bomberman Hardball for PlayStation 2 innovates on the brand's classic puzzle-based bombing action with new baseball, golf and tennis games each of which has single-player and multi-player modes. A new 'life' mode tied to the PS2 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 4 players.
As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.
