Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory
Top Critic Average
Digimon Story games have always been richer than Digimon World games in terms of story telling and simplicity of their gameplay has always been a welcome sign to people who are not as patient as the hardcore fans. Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth:Hacker's Memory once again follows that path and in spite of its flaws, could be a descent game for new-comers.

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.

Hacker's Memory is a sequel that can only be enjoyed by gamers who played the original Cyber Sleuth.
if you loved the first Cyber Sleuth then you'll really enjoy Hacker's Memory. The story is simple and gives a new perspective to this world, but if you didn't play the first title you may be lost when a particular character shows up.
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 just as good as its predecessor.
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.
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.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory is a perfect game for Digimon franchise fans and the JRPG fans but, in comparison with the previous game, this title don't have anything new in jugability terms. So it's a good game but I hoped more from it

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.
