A fun mix of a variety of different game types and a must have for any fans of Digimon. Even if you're not too into it the story is fun and the mechanics are extremely well done.

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth is an all around polished JRPG, but it's truly the intricate digivolution system that makes this game the best Digimon title to be released in the West.

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!

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.

Despite a few flaws in the storytelling and the combat system—although both move at a favorably brisk pace—Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is still handedly the game that Digimon fans have been waiting for. Its faithful translation of an extraordinary roster of Digimon into fully-realized models lays the groundwork for future Digimon titles in this console generation. With more refinement in character interaction and less of a need to roam around in search of story triggers, this Digimon series could re-establish itself as a premiere RPG. Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is the shot that Digimon video games have long deserved.

While the West may have been skipped over for much of the last decade with Digimon games, fans can rejoice over Bandai Namco's choice to localize Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, as they will find plenty of reasons to love this game with its nearly 250 different Digimon available.

Cyber Sleuth evokes nostalgia while also pivoting in tone and setting for fans who have grown older. The disorienting lack of story direction in the first half is made up for when its mysteries finally come to light, and it makes Cyber Sleuth's world a great one to spend hours training Digimon in.

Easily one of the most addictive RPGs on the PS4, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth features an enjoyable story and a great setting for a fantastic monster raising system. Although many of its components aren't perfect and proceedings do drag at times, the process of building and perfecting a team of powerful digimon is just too rewarding to walk away from. The phrase "digimon are the champions" has never been more fitting.
