Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory is an impressive take on the monster collecting Japanese RPG format. Collecting and levelling up the digimon may seem a little too simple for die hard genre enthusiasts, but the typing, elements, and memory limit all help to add extra layers of depth to the gameplay. The DigiFarm and the interactions with your monsters also help create a bond, making them more than just tools at your disposal - something that other similar games miss. Hacker's Memory is an enjoyable romp overall for both Digimon fans and non-fans alike.
Hacker's Memory mostly builds upon its capable predecessor, but despite an interesting cast, some tedious content holds it back from true greatness.
Digimon Cyber sleuth Hacker's Memory is a good continuation of the first game. It has a lot of what made the first title great along with new mechanics that give it freshness and that end up fitting into the story.

Although Digimon: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory is a blast to play and gives gamers a lot to do, it's essentially just more of the same.

The appeal of Hacker's Memory will hinge greatly on your acceptance of the grind and your appreciation for Digimon as a franchise. It's fun collecting and fighting with the huge range of Digimon available, and it's wrapped up in a story that, while a little slow off the mark, does develop into an interesting exploration of themes. Being squarely aimed at players of the original Cyber Sleuth, it's unfortunate that so much of the world is straight-up re-used from that game.
A solid continuation of the series, but a bit too same-y for some.
In the end, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker's Memory feels a lot like the previous title.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory has the same pros and cons as its predecessor. The game still makes a pleasant experience in its own genre, but the lack of new content or gameplay mechanics does not leave a good impression.

If you're a Digimon fan, Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory will consume your time and then some. If not, the game won't do much to get you to fall in love with the brand, but its core gameplay loop is engrossing for people with an affinity for collecting.
