Even those who aren’t usually fans of Digimon are likely to enjoy this Complete Edition quite a lot because that’s exactly what happened to me when I first played Cyber Sleuth back in 2016. This is a great case of a company understanding the need to mature along with their fanbase, leading to a series of games that stand out amongst its competition while never losing sight of what people fell in love with to begin with.
All in all, it’s hard to argue against this collection, even with those small technical issues. For less than a full-priced game you are getting not one, but two great and substantial RPGs. Cyber Sleuth is easily among the best Digimon games and stories, while Hacker’s Memory might have its downsides compared to the base game but still is an good game on its own. If you ever enjoyed Digimon but haven’t played either of these games, then this is the way to experience modern Digimon at its best. Even those who haven’t heard of Digimon can have a good time since they’re great RPGs, and those who already played them can even go back to the original Cyber Sleuth and enjoy its improvements taken from Hacker’s Memory. If the future of Digimon games takes notes from this series, then I’m excited to see them evolve even further.
I just finished cyber sleuth after a good month and my god the game is huge.
I liked the story a lot the royal knights but the last chapter could've been better.
Havent had such a blast with a game in a long time and surprised to see this many bad reviews.
I can recommend this game on switch, because your digimon keep levelling in the farm if your switch is tunred off. Neat advantage to the PC version.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Complete Edition is one of the best values that a JRPG fan can get on the Nintendo Switch. The games are fun if not particularly special, but they scratch the "got to catch 'em all" itch. They're marred by some issues, like inconsistent difficulty and a dodgy translation, but nothing ruins the experience. If you're a Digimon fan or just RPG faithful looking for something new to try, it's worth giving Cyber Sleuth a shot.
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition is a content-packed RPG with plenty to see and do. Its evolution system feels wholly unique when compared to another monster-breeding game series you might find on Nintendo hardware, and while the grind may be too much for some, it’s comfortably one of the best creature-catchers on the Switch – although Pokémon still holds the crown, of course.
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition teeters on the precipice of being a must-have JRPG, but is, unfortunately, let down by a myriad of story-related issues. Thematics and pacing complaints aside, however, there’s certainly plenty of content here to keep JRPG enthusiasts thoroughly entertained.
Digimon Cyber Sleuth comprises of two nearly perfect Digimon game experiences, but unfortunately, they’re smack dab in the middle of an experiment in the franchise that feels much more like a chore than a game. When you’re finding, raising, and battling Digimon, you’ll be in heaven. But the insane amount of unskip-able dialogue and shallow “mystery-solving” gameplay is enough to turn off even the most dedicated fan.
Barring maybe **** I have never put so many hours in to a game. I just completed Cybersleuth at 257 hours. I'm probably not gonna play Hacker's Memory as I'm all Digimonned out.
So where do I start, poor graphics and animations, strange synth music throughout (which is good though), I don't enjoy menu turn based games and have no history with Digimon shows, games, or anything for that matter. The dialogue is bad, the translations worse. I rarely play anything over a 10-30 hour game. The game does not value your time but somehow, I absolutely loved this game.
0/10 is a totally fair score as is my 10/10. This is a game you're going to love or hate. At a cost of around 10p an hour play time and a lot of fun. I absolutely loved it.
I could not tell you why I liked a game where everything is so crap but it is just one of those things where non of it works by itself but as a complete package, it comes together perfectly.
Give it a try, you never know.
Hey, you can just train your Digimon on farm. Put your switch (do not close the app) and yourself on sleep, and the next morning your Digimon would be LV 30+. Once you re on mission, You obliterate your enemy (played in hard mode) in 1 hit or simply put it on auto. That's destroys the purpose of RPG strategy. We've talked about Pokémon being too easy but this is another level.
With that aside, you'll have good time especially Digimon and Anime fan. Character is good (anime style). Story is okay. Graphic is okay. Music is good. Everything is just Good/okay but that's the problem with Digimon. Everything is barely changed from games that I've played in original PlayStation 20 years ago. Just better graphic, more Digimon, and gimmick feature that doesn't affect anything. I really hope with the rise of it anime series, Bandai will give Digimon more attention.
I would say pick it when on sale for at least 50%, it has 2 games and longevity of 100 hours...
No entiendo la nota que tiene este juego. Es tremendamente repetitivo, escenarios muy escasos que tienes que recorrer una y otra vez. Misiones secundarias aburridisimas, incluyendo las que probablemente son las peores misiones secundarias de la historia como son los objetos perdidos (ni si quiera se molestan en que cada objeto sea diferente, es el colmo del relleno).
La crianza de Digimon, lejos de ser divertida, se hace muy tediosa y representa de la misma forma lo repetitivo del juego, teniendo que retroceder y avanzar de etapa una y otra vez para conseguir un Digimon medianamente decente.
En cuanto a los diálogos, más de lo mismo, hay una cantidad increíble de diálogos vacíos y redundantes. El juego, en general, podría haber sido exactamente lo mismo en un tercio o menos de las horas que obliga a invertir, y habría sido mucho menos aburrido.
Lo único que se salva un poco es la historia (que tampoco es gran cosa) y la banda sonora, que recuerda en casi todo momento a otras franquicias como persona, final fantasy o nier (quiero pensar que a modo de homenaje).
En resumen, solo lo recomiendo a los fans más acérrimos de Digimon, e incluso a ellos les diría que con opciones como el Next order este juego no merece la pena.
This is the most generous score I can give the games it is pretty bad. Allow me to further explain why. For one, the game has 20 chapters, and it does not truly start until chapter 10. This isn’t even entirely true, since it really starts to begin at chapter 12. The story itself lacks focus, and is all over the place. To add on even more, I ran into movement problems with the game. It also suffers from translation issues, if not it is regular spelling or basic grammar, it is the lack of correct gender identification. More over, most of the characters don’t even have any personality to them, especially the main character. It is just boring.
To further explain, there are quests, good right? Well not so much. The game does a terrible job in telling you what to do even with basic quests. I have found myself running around for awhile before completing one. As for main story line, it suffers from this same issue, the game has a problem in identifying where to go next. Even more, the game uses a set single screen, no rotation. What makes this so much of a problem, is that it does not work. The screen does not show enough, which can make both main story, quests, and even exploration a problem. Honestly, this is just plain laziness at this point.
Moreover, battles are unbalanced. Even on normal mode, there were enemies that could nuke my near max level monsters. Now going to the monster end of things, needlessly complicated. ABI and CAM in determination for evolution and stat building. Then there is the farm which is a good idea no doubt, but in reality this is the best form of leveling in the early game, which is awful. I spent the first few days just trying to level. The game already moves at a slow enough pace, that was a real terrible decision. Now once I did get exp boosting monsters, it was still not enough until near the end of the game. Almost completely destroying the point of getting them in the first place.
Now it does have a few perks. For instance, you can reset your stat allocation points with some item, here is another problem. It is rare to come across, defeating the point of it once again. It appears every step of the way, these developers managed to screw up the basics. They fail around every aspect of the game. Needless to say, this isn’t the worst game I have played, but definitely in the top ten terrible ones.
Terrible and annoying story, bad mechanics, horrible quest and tracking system. Everything feeling slow and a grind, etc. It is not enjoyable, and honestly, I wouldn’t care if these developers never made another game again. Good riddance, the game is done with, I never want to see it again. Don’t buy this game, it is also really repetitive and slow in battling.
