  • Summary: Digimon World DS is the first iteration of the Digimon franchise on the Nintendo DS platform, featuring turn-based combat and entertaining Digimon training. In the game, the player assumes a role of Digimon tamer and embarks on an exciting journey to discover, raise, train and command over 230 unique Digimons. Unlike many of the character collection driven games in the past, the true fun of Digimon World DS begins when collection is completed. You build Digi-Farms to raise, evolve and communicate with your Digimons. You can also exchange Digimons, engage in online battles together, and create rare breeds of Digimon with your friends via Wi-Fi and DS local wireless connection. [Namco Bandai Games] Expand

    The game may still be a ripoff of Pokemon, despite developer's attempts to set it apart, but it still is a fun game. If it had more internet capabilities, it could have been one of the better RPGs on the DS.

    Old Digimon fans will absolutely love this game; it's a repackaging of the older Digimons, but with much more to do. However, new fans may be a bit wary approaching a game like Digimon World DS.
  3. The next best thing to Pokemon ... when Pokemon still rocked.

    Sure, Digimon World DS isn't the most original game out there, but it's still a pretty fun title.
  5. As a gamer who has not only never played a Digimon title until this one, but dropped far too many hours into his copy of Pokémon Diamond, I was quite impressed with what Namco Bandai have brought to the table.
  6. If Digimon ever wants to step out of Pokemon’s shadow, it’s going to have to come up with more of its own mechanics. The capture method and digital farm idea are great start, but it’s just that – only a start.
  7. Digimon World DS excels in being a solid monster collection and training sim. However, the downside is playing through the actual game to collect these monsters. From here it's all Digi-downhill.

    I think this game deserves a 10 because it is a great game and has OK graphics but is great online.
