    The cold, hard truth is that unless digi-fans…existed, most would not care two digi-bits about DDCB after playing two digi-seconds. [Oct 2001, p.156]

    True strategy is jettisoned by unpredictable card draws that cause the matches to vacillate between frustrating and extremely boring.
  3. A surprisingly simple game lies beneath these convulted rules and great graphics, which is a shame because this is the first Digimon game to do justice to the cartoon.
  4. While DCB accurately duplicates the flow and gameplay of the tabletop game, its simplicity will turn off any but the youngest of players.
  5. Digimon and card battle fans will find a comprehensive game in DCB, but non-fans could be turned off by the digital world.

As for strategy, there is a perfect mix of luck and strategy that needs to be present in a card game. If I had one complaint, it would be the story, or basic lack thereof. Full Review »

    This is the best video game ever. It's practically the only one I play anymore.
