  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.
  4. 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.

    Digimon World DS it´s the best Digimon Nintendo DS game. The gameplay is really good and the graphics are gorgeous yet simple. The story isn´tDigimon World DS it´s the best Digimon Nintendo DS game. The gameplay is really good and the graphics are gorgeous yet simple. The story isn´t the best or something that you haven´t seen somewhere else but you want to grow your digimon stronger so you will keep going. "Catching" other digimons in this game is the easier of the "World" games. But the less fun, you just have to scan other digimons and you will see the digimon over and over again so you will collect more then 100% of the data that you need. The digimon-raising in this game is also interesting but not really interactive like in Digimon World 1 or 3. Overall Digimon World DS is a good game but it isn´t something to be very excited about.

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