After clocking in over 200 hours across both games, on the same save file, I can safely say the Cyber Sleuth games are easily some of the best Digimon games in the franchise. Despite some minor issues, a fair bit of grinding, and while still nowhere near the production values or quality of the Persona series -- Hacker's Memory is another solid turn-based RPG and a damn good Digimon game that you shouldn't miss if you played the original.

More skills, a new battle mode, and the addition of 80 new Digimon make Hacker's Memory worth the investment for anyone that's a fan of the series. It appreciates your love for the show, offering the most complete and enjoyable Digimon game to date.

Fans of Digimon and the first Cyber Sleuth will surely love Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory, where the digital monsters are the undisputed stars of the film. On the bad side, it's almost exactly like the original game (some locations are the same, and even the soundtrack is reused), and for an JRPG it's pretty average.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker's Memory is basicalley the same game as its predecessor. It features almost no improvements and seems to be created for PlayStation Vita, so the versions for PlayStation 4 feel like a missed opportunity. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-ldb4'); });

This is more Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth which is great but also has a lot of reused assets sadly.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory is a fun mix of JRPG and simple investigation tactics taking place in a digital sugarland with tons of adorable creatures. When it is at its best, the scenery is beautiful and the game is complex fun, but it has lulls of dull look and sound as well. This game is a lot of fun and a unique experience for Digimon and RPG faithful.

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker's Memory is a surprisingly deep and complicated game. Coming to the title as a franchise newcomer, I did have some problems assimilating into such an established universe. But underneath all of the anime trappings, I found a solid and enjoyable (if somewhat standard) RPG. I would recommend this game to Digimon fans, and to RPG fans looking for something a little weird.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker's Memory is a confusing product. It's too complex and longwinded for kids, but too easy, repetitive, and derivative for most adults. The game was made with fans of the original Cyber Sleuth in mind, but will frustrate those same fans with its rampant rehashing. Hardcore Digimon devotes may find something to enjoy here, but most will want to forget Hacker's Memory.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory offers an entertaining alternative to Pokémon, but at the same time is too lazy in trying to drag you into its dense cybernetic networks. Despite good battle system and a solid collection of digital monsters, the brainchild of Media Vision lacks interesting ideas, polishing and really captivating story.

It is not a jaw-dropping, life-changing piece, but it is an enjoyable experience especially for a Digimon fan.
