  1. Hardcore gamers (young or old) would be wise to ignore the kiddy image and give the game a shot.
  2. There is none of the user-friendliness and open-ended approach that made "Super Smash Bros." clone "Digimon Rumble Arena" such a pleasant experience.
  3. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine

    Profoundly mediocre, the kind of game that only hardcore Digi-fans will like. [June 2002, p.102]
  4. For a game whose main gameplay component is building up your characters, Digimon World 3 makes the process needlessly complicated and annoying.
  5. 40
    Despite some impressive world-map graphics and extremely catchy anime-style music, Digimon World 3 disappoints in countless ways.
  6. Electronic Gaming Monthly

    The third time is definitely not the charm. [July 2002, p.128]

    This is one of the best PlayStation games I've ever played, mainly because the graphics in the game are so well done, even for its generationThis is one of the best PlayStation games I've ever played, mainly because the graphics in the game are so well done, even for its generation and year. This was June 5th in 2002, and look at the battle graphics! They look absolutely stunning, and that was on 64-bit PlayStation! Maybe if they were on PS2 they would've looked awesome!

    The game does very well at what it tries to do; and why the critics on this site turn this down so badly, I don't know. This is freakin' Digimon! That's basically all there is to say about that!

    The game's gameplay is very good; the main world has the main character running from a sort of top-down view that separates it from other RPGs, whilst the battling system is in full 3D. There are only 8 Digimon you can obtain, but each one is intertwined to all the other beast's evolutionary forms in some form. For instance, Veemon can change into Grizzmon (Kumamon's "Champion" form), and Agumon can change into Growlmon (Guilmon's "Champion" form), through leveling up stats, and training them at the Gym.

    I don't want to spoil any more of the game, so go try and play it for yourself! You'll be glad you did!

    It was really annoying and confusing. World 1 was much better.
