    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.

    Digimon World: Next Order
    Like taking care of a 2 year old.
    Have you even wanted to be a pageant mom and have a honey booboo child of your own?
    Well you’re in luck, because in Digimon World: Next Order you get 2.
    Here you play as either a male or female character that you get to name and you work on escaping the digital world…
    This is a very odd rpg... it’s a very good rpg though.. But that statement of course depends on the type of gameplay experiences you enjoy…
    Digimon World is very much a management game...
    The game starts with you choosing any 2 eggs… you raise the characters in these eggs in a training room to digivolve them and boost their stats… not in combat..
    Their stats act more as defense here in case you do run into a combat situation...
    You do increase your tamer level from combat though which gives skill points for your skill tree...
    In this game you explore the open Digi world recruiting digimon to your village by helping them get the items they need throughout the world and in exchange they go back to your village and offer a perk for that village...
    Your village is where you go to restock on food every day, buy items from shops, and train your digimon...
    And mistakenly as you play the game this village gets bigger so everything is spread out instead of nicely packed into a small area… so you have to run around to get your refills…
    As you are completing tasks you’ll run into wild digimon and you act as a coach or a cheerleader on the sideline while your 2 digimon do their thing…
    you are able to throw in some healing items while they fight and command them to do special moves that they build up thanks to your cheering…
    But they fight on their own…
    you’re basically a cheerleader for 2 toddlers that also does fetch quests.
    And as you explore the lands completing the tasks given to you you have to make sure your digimon don’t go hungry... and they get hungry a lot…
    It’s annoying how frequently you have to feed them…
    You even have to take them to the bathroom…
    It’s a constant juggle of making sure you have food and portable toilets... while your digimon are strong enough to handle themselves in the locations you travel to…
    That’s the game…
    It’s a really good game if you’re into that kind of thing.. Even I was for the first 8 hours…
    But the thing is your digimon die…
    And I have no idea how or why...
    They’ll get sick if you over train them… but I purposely hatched a new one and trained it without giving it rest at all trying to kill it.. And it just wouldn’t die... I thought this was why and its clearly not it...
    I tried to push at least 10 different digimon past their ultimate form and they died every time with no signs of illness or dissatisfaction from me as a tamer..
    And it’s of course very frustrating to have to start again numerous times with new characters and have to bring their stats up all over again…
    Especially if you just want to get on with the story..
    This game is very much an open world digimon version of Tamagotchi...
    Either you like that play style or you don’t…
    Don’t expect a deep combat system here...or a typical jrpg where you have to slot in new items and moves… that’s not what this game is about
    Feed your digimon, take them to the bathroom.. Don’t over train them... and use them as protection as you try to escape the digital world...
    I give Digimon World: Next Order
    a 7/10

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
