Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory
Top Critic Average
Exceptionally balancing its roles as a sequel and a standalone title, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker’s Memory is a thoroughly enjoyable RPG that mixes a fun but accessible story with wonderfully deep gameplay.
Not really original, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory is nonetheless a decent JRPG with one hell of a lifespan. It's a rich experience, with a gameplay that is slick, full of content, but looks a bit crude on the technical side.
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.
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.

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.
I highly recommend giving Hacker's Memory a try if you're a fan of the Digimon universe and enjoy a good visual novel with lots of role play elements.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory is just as good as its predecessor.
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.
Initially, the game didn't trigger my fancy, as it wasn't my sort of aesthetic. But I was intrigued and missed being able to play a Digimon game, and I eventually found myself enjoying and even addicted.
