  1. The fighter is elementary and good for it’s young target audience, but not anyone else.

    Despite the nice presentation, there just isn’t very much to do compared with Nintendo’s genre-defining fighter [Super Smash Bros].

    Without a doubt, this is the best Digimon game I’ve ever played, but it’s still nothing special. [Mar 2002, p.144]
  4. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    70
    Riddled with some clunky and stiff gameplay that can lead to plenty of button mashing. [Apr 2002, p.109]
  5. It's the closest thing to "Super Smash Bros." that the PSOne will ever get, and based on the compromised look of the graphics on display here that's probably a good thing.
