Critic Reviews for Digimon World: Next Order

Next Order isn't without flaws, but it's exactly the kind of game the Digimon World series needed after a regional hiatus. While the unconventional combat and grind-heavy skill training aren't likely to deter fans of the franchise, newcomers might find some of the game's quirks unwelcoming. As such, Digimon World: Next Order likely won't appeal to everyone, but the game is something longtime fans of the series will have no problem dumping hours upon hours into.

Digimon World: Next Order offers a great amount of hours of entertainment, especially for the fans of the franchise. A good combat system but a very weak plot.

Its combat system and less deep story make this game worse than Cyber Sleuth.

Digimon World: Next Order is grindy, unintuitive and just plain dull, and no amount of exciting evolutions will change that.

While a robust digivolution system features plenty of layers to explore while raising your partner Digimon in a very faithful follow-up to the original, the lackluster battle system may hinder newcomers to the franchise from really enjoying Digimon World: Next Order.

Digimon World:Next Order is a bright, slow-paced game that intermixes a open-world RPG with monster raising to great success. Refreshingly simple and fun, the game overcomes some issues with AI to be a surprisingly addictive title. With team based battles focused on strategy and plenty of exploration, Digimon World: Next Order provides solid content worth a look.

Fans of the Digimon TV series would be wise to give this game a look, but do not go looking for a traditional JRPG like Cyber Sleuth was.

Digimon World: Next Order is an interesting game. It is honestly is nothing like anything I have ever played before. The unconventional leveling system, the complex raising mechanic, and the passive battle system all take a while to get used to, and the first parts of the game can be a real difficult time for some, but in all, I think there is room for this game for many RPG fans out there. It’s not going to win any awards, but it is different enough to keep players on their toes and if you let the raising become an addiction to you, it can easily last you a very long time. I would say wait for a little price drop unless you’re a hardcore fan of Digimon.
