    I like Digimon World: Next Order better than Pokémon Sun and Moon.

    Digimon World:Next Order is a bright, slow-paced game that intermixes a open-world RPG with monster raising to great success. Refreshingly simple and fun, the game overcomes some issues with AI to be a surprisingly addictive title. With team based battles focused on strategy and plenty of exploration, Digimon World: Next Order provides solid content worth a look.

    For the target audience, Digimon World: Next Order is exactly what they would want from a Digimon game.

    It takes a little too much to reward the player for its progresses, but it's a really enjoyable adventure for fans of the series. If you like the first Digimon World for PSX, you'll like this one.

    Digimon World: Next Order offers a great amount of hours of entertainment, especially if for the fans of the franchise. A better combat system than previous intallments, but a very weak plot.
  6. After Cyber Sleuth got our expectations real high, Digimon World: Next Order is crushed under those expectations. Although they are parts of two different series, Next Order still feels like an old and less fun game.
  7. 50
    On a whole, Digimon World: Next Order isn’t a bad experience. It does take some time in order to get used to the flow of the game, and to deal with its irritations, but once you're there, you're in for what might potentially be a very addictive grind indeed.

    Digimon World is one of the most unique RPG series to ever exist. Instead of taking full control of your mindless party, you act as a coachDigimon World is one of the most unique RPG series to ever exist. Instead of taking full control of your mindless party, you act as a coach for two living, breathing partners. You can still issue direct commands, but your Digimon companion will decide how they want to set up the attack. The focus on the game is to grow a strong bond and adventure with this living companion. It's the best monster raising game to ever exist. Bar none.

    100%ing the game will take you well over 100 hours.

    This game scratches an itch. If you played Digimon World for Playstation 1 and have nostalgia this game can provide memories and a fun timeThis game scratches an itch. If you played Digimon World for Playstation 1 and have nostalgia this game can provide memories and a fun time playing through it. It mechanically works okay but doesn't hold your hand. This game is not cyber sleuth for better or worse. It focuses more on the upgrading of your town and the raising of digimon. There is not periods of time where you are playing mashing through text. That said, the battling is a little less interesting then cyber sleuth. I hope they some day take the best of both games and combine them. I enjoyed the game alot as a fan and can't wait for my next visit to the digimon world franchise. I just hope them spend more time polishing the world and showing that they care about the source material they are pulling from. Expand

    I just can't have much fun playing this, at all. The first 20 minutes were not bad, but not good either. The gameplay is way to complicated,I just can't have much fun playing this, at all. The first 20 minutes were not bad, but not good either. The gameplay is way to complicated, and I messed up a bunch early on. The Digimon selection is awesome though, the more the better. The story was very boring, and the voice acting and character animations don't help. The graphics were pretty bad also, and seemed like older games. I didn't have any fun playing, so I won't recommend it. Expand
