Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth überzeugt mit einer überraschend hohen Sammel-Motivation, einer interessanten aber etwas langwierigen Geschichte und einem sehr umfangreichen Aufgebot an Digimon und deren Entwicklung. Viele der Gebiete sind zwar sehr linear ausgefallen und auch die Story wird durch die vielen nebensächlichen Dialoge etwas in die länge gezogen, aber ansonsten gibts von uns eine klare Empfehlung an JRPG Fans und vor allem Digimon Fans!

Its cast, both human and digital, really bring the story and setting to life, and the game does a very good job of emulating the appeal of monster collecting and raising that the Pokémon series has mastered.

It’s a really great monster capture game with fun combat and a lot of reason to grind and level up your Digimon. The story line is enjoyable enough and gives you a good reason to play the game through.

Remember in the late 90's when an array of cute little monsters stole our hearts? No not Pokemon, but it's cyber-space cousin, Digimon.

Despite the game's plot taking hours to reach the point where it actually becomes interesting, it more than makes up for it with the core combat itself being top notch and the addicting Digimon training.

I honestly enjoyed my time with Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. I was able to train a team of my favourite Digimon from my childhood in order to save the world, which is exactly what I want to do in a Digimon game. Hardcore Digimon fans or JRPG fanatics will have a great time with this game and be able to ignore many of the issues I raised. However, if you don't fall in to one of those two niches, I don't think you will be able to look past many of the game's flaws or cumbersome design choices.

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth - Complete Edition has a ton of content for players, if they can make it through some weird pacing issues. Both titles have darker, more mature storylines, even when looking at the cutesy Digimon.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth really does have all the ingredients to be the fantastic game I so hoped it would be, it was just the arranging and delivery of these ingredients that left it falling a little short in areas. Better pacing with the story, more opportunities to explore off the beaten path and a more user-friendly questing feature would have gone a long way but it’s still a game worthy of your time as a Digimon fan.
