    THE BEST DIGIMON GAME EVER!!

    This is the TOP. There are a lot of things to say about this game (or bundle) but I'm going to keep it simple
    THE BEST DIGIMON GAME EVER!!

    This is the TOP. There are a lot of things to say about this game (or bundle) but I'm going to keep it simple by talking about both games in each section.

    Story
    I won't go too much in-depth with the story. The story in both games are well written. Although there are some subplots that aren't related to Digimon + funny moments, it's just so awesome how the mysteries unfold as you progress through the game. You play as two protagonists: Takumi/Ami Aiba in Cyber Sleuth and Keisuke Amasawa in Hacker's Memory, however you can change their first names however you like and even customize them throughout the game. There are a total of 20 chapters in Cyber Sleuth and 18 chapters in Hacker's Memory (some chapters are long XD). The game mostly takes place in Tokyo, as well as the virtual EDEN cyberspace, in contrast to other Digimon media, though you still visit the Digital World and whatnot. There are a lot of expansive text-based dialogue that almost look similar to visual novels (but not quite). There are some legit anime cutscenes too. A shame they are unskippable if you're ever bored of them. There are also a bunch of side quests and post-game content with great challenges ahead (which are mostly about beating up Digimon and searching for lost items).

    Gameplay
    The gameplay itself is amazing! Like other RPG games, you explore in third-person around various cities and dungeons whilst collecting items and encountering battles with Digimon. It is made very similar to Pokemon and probably the Shin Megami Tensei's Persona games too. The combat system is pretty neat in a Pokemon-esque fashion. You battle with up to 3 Digimon with up to 8 others in reserve. You attack and use skill points and items to defeat your enemies and support your allies. Hacker's Memory also added more gameplay features, such as a Domination battle of 3v3 and Territory Battles (which are awesome in its own ways). There are NO minigames, but the game itself is pretty handy getting you occupied. There are over 300 Digimon and about 700 medals to collect so have fun with that :D
    In addition, there's a DigiLab set up for you which you very much need because it's very essential in taking care of your Digimon friends. You have yourself a DigiFarm where you raise Digimon by feeding them and training them. You can also ask them to develop items and investigate for more cases. You can sort out your Digimon by putting them in your farm or in your party. Let alone Digivolve/De-Digivolve them to make them stronger/weaker, as long as you meet their requirements. There is also an online pvp network battle where you can fight other players and NPCs to earn coins to buy cool accessories and avatars. Don't worry too much about them though because the playerbase is dead. How sad :(
    Once you're done clearing both stories, you are allowed to transfer Digimon from one to another or you can start "New Game +" for another round.

    Graphics
    The graphics are decent. Good enough to run the game. That's it.

    Music
    EPIC soundtrack. Can't believe how every each and one of them are unique in its own way and fits the atmosphere perfectly. I just can't stop listening to them :)

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'm playing cyber sleuth mode and the story is good and interesting.
    Translation is a bit confusing at first but getting better and better except chapter 6 and last chapter extra quest.
    Game difficult is balanced if you can understand what Digimon you need to use.
    7 Deadly Digimon is the most fun battle overall because i'm still can lose even with proper Digimon.
    This game featuring new game+ but you still can beat everything in 1 run (hard mode).
    Overall this is 1 of my fav Digimon after ps1 Digimon series.

    My mouth was on the floor when i realized the vast majority of Digimons in this game have unique signature animations for their attacks.My mouth was on the floor when i realized the vast majority of Digimons in this game have unique signature animations for their attacks. Sometimes each has 3-4 unique and flashy animations!
    I thought such a task was impossible for a game with 341 different monsters.
    And then i was surprised again by the story and inspiration from Persona and Shin Megami Tensei games. And is actually good and not a cheap copy!

    Im speechless because i did not expect this AT ALL!
    It became my favorite game of the year just like that.

The game-play seem difficult at first, but once you finish the tutorial, the game will be a piece of cake if you master it.
    The story is beautiful, even if you're not a fan of digimon, the game will explain the important thing abouts certain groups of digimon and what are digimon in general.
