Bomberman Act Zero is called one of the worst games for the Xbox 360. The game is often criticized for its long load times. The game also has horrible hit detection. Bomberman Act Zero strays away from the rest of the Bomberman series by having a dark futuristic environments. The game does not feature a local multiplayer, in which individuals can play against a friend by plugging in another controller. Individuals also complain that you once you die you will return to the title screen no matter which level you are on. The balance of the AI also poses a problem.
