"Bomberman Land" & Friends

After a few hours of playing "Bomberman Land" for the Wii last night, I came to the inescapable conclusion- The Story Mode on this thing is worthless. Or, as John Dietrich put it, don't you think a game called "Bomberman" would have a story involving, oh I don't know, blowing stuff up?

But the Battlemodes, which tweak but do not overproduce a time-tested formula, are where this game really shines. If this were a $30 purchase it might find its way into my gameshelf- but I can't see spending $50 for a game with such a lousy story mode component.

Now if I can just find a fourth player---it'll be sunny afternoons after school lets out all over again...
