    A perfect example of turning something underrated into a great game. Its also embarrasses "Pokemon Colosseum" and its fuddy-duddy turn based approach, flaunting a more hands on approach.
  2. A decent fighting game with enough twists in the gameplay to set it apart from the pack.
  3. A good party fighter that fills in the vacancy found on the Xbox, while also offering Gamecube fans another option after they have had enough of "Super Smash Brothers Melee."

    It has a charm all its own -- a kind of clumsy quirkiness wrought with effort and clouded in branding.
  5. It may not inspire players to sing praises of its innovation or unparalleled gameplay, but it is nonetheless an entertaining foray into the world of monster collection.
  6. It's a fun game for fans of "Super Smash Brothers" and a fun game for fans of the 2D fighters of yesteryear.
  7. Digimon: Rumble Arena 2 isn't a bad title if you are obsessed with the TV and toy counterpart; it has pretty good graphics, destructible arenas and decent enough multiplayer modes.

    Sadly, unlike the game Bandai tried so hard to copy ("SSBM"), 2 has no depth whatsoever. [Nov 2004, p.100]
