  1. The next best thing to Pokemon ... when Pokemon still rocked.
  2. Digimon World DS is a solid, if unremarkable monster battle game, which pretty much means it's the best Digimon game ever made.

    Sure, Digimon World DS isn't the most original game out there, but it's still a pretty fun title.

    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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

But, what I hate about this game is that the battles are first-person shooter view. When you moved the character around for only a few steps. You get in battles so frequently. It's annoying.
