Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition
Top Critic Average
Two of the best and most stylish Digimon games arrive on the Switch in an essential bundle
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition is an extremely good value bundle for the two games that you get, so if you haven't played the games and own a Switch then this Pokemon alternative is certainly worth investing in.
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition might, at first glance, come off as a Pokémon copycat but don't be fooled. This game has a lot to offer on its own. It meshes the real world and digital worlds together all while providing its own unique creature capture system. THIS is the game Pokémon fans should be playing while they wait for Pokémon Sword & Shield to arrive!
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition is easily the best way to experience these games.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Complete Edition has made its way to PC and Nintendo Switch, but can it compete with other JRPGs out there?
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition is a content-packed RPG with plenty to see and do. Its evolution system feels wholly unique when compared to another monster-breeding game series you might find on Nintendo hardware, and while the grind may be too much for some, it's comfortably one of the best creature-catchers on the Switch – although Pokémon still holds the crown, of course.
The writing and gameplay are both quite enjoyable, though I can't shake the feeling that they both kind of seem like almost-as-good Shin Megami Tensei games that are a little more accessible and have a hint of Pokémon. If that sounds good to you, I recommend the collection wholeheartedly. If not, well, there you go.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Complete Edition is one of the best values that a JRPG fan can get on the Nintendo Switch. The games are fun if not particularly special, but they scratch the "got to catch 'em all" itch. They're marred by some issues, like inconsistent difficulty and a dodgy translation, but nothing ruins the experience. If you're a Digimon fan or just RPG faithful looking for something new to try, it's worth giving Cyber Sleuth a shot.
GOOD - This might be the best monster battling game on the Switch, at least for a few more weeks. If you absolutely can’t wait until the new Pokémon games release it’s worth it to hangout in the Digital World for a little while and spend some time with some digital critters on the DigiFarm.
These are fun little games, but they're hardly classics.
