    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.

    Despite a somewhat repetitive level design and an online mode that can be improved, this compilation of the two most recent turn-based role-playing games of the Digimon franchise is an essential experience for those who want to enjoy an interesting plot, a classic but deep combat system and an excellent artistic section created by Suzuhito Yasuda.

    Two excellent monster-taming games with something for almost every playstyle. [Issue #44 – January/February 2020, p. 70]

    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.

    It does nothing with its mechanics or story that allows it to rise to the level of RPG greats like Persona 5 but what it does do is perfectly entertaining in its own right.

    Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is built for the fans of the series. There were things I enjoyed, like my trial-and-error of finding new Digimon through the evolutionary lines, and things I did not, like the lost item quests. The item was sometimes feet away from the person! The game may never win any awards for its story, but it was a solid romp in a digital atmosphere that reminded me how much I enjoyed the television series when I was younger.

    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.

    It has a lot of grinding in the end game, but it's still fun because of how much details a single Digimon has, every digimon has their own unique skills and animations with victory poses!.overall I really enjoyed both games and I can't recommend it enough.

After the disappointment over Pokemon Sword & Shield I was in the market for a new monster-collecting game to fill the void and this did an excellent job. Excellent story, lovable characters, good monster variety, and a challenging difficulty puts this game high on my JRPG list. Only issues I'd say is that the translation can be somewhat lacking at times, and the lack of dungeon variety resulting in a lot of the same dungeon visuals repeated through most of the game, but these are relatively minor gripes. Despite being a Vita port the game provides console-level quality and is more than worth the $50. Expand

This is not only a great compilation,This game is tailor made for those who were (justifiably) upset by the Pokémon Sword and Shield scheme. This is not only a great compilation, it is also a pretty good game in it's own right. You don't only have the opportunity to have 2 rock-solid games for the price of one, but now you can also enjoy some features that were absent from the first "Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth" game (including a considerable amount of new creatures). With the release of 2013's "Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode" (on the 3DS console which unfortunately wasn't released outside of Japan, like its predecessor) Bandai Nanco and the producer Habu Kazumasa made very clear that, although the Digimon franchise doesn't usually tend to release second or third versions of a game, a follow up title really does mean bigger and better, taking full advantage of the new console (and the graphics of this game couldn't be more appealing too... with perfectly animated signature moves made from scratch), and that aren't just made to cash grab its fan base. This is a great oportinity to enjoy a fantastic JRPG on the Switch (until Pokémon decides to stop being so lazy), which isn't afraid to touch some mature topics every once in a while to show respect to its young adult fanbase.

As a fan of the shows, I was finally able to enjoy a game of the series that after a little play felt both intuitive and rewarding to understand well. I enjoy the story quite a bit, and truly believe that it shows why Digimon was once considered the biggest competitor of Pokemon.

    For some, grinding could be a little tedious, but I did not find it to be overwhelming in this game. For fans of monster catching games, the min/maxing of certain Digimon's stats to digivolve could be overwhelming, but for me I felt the payoff was very rewarding.

    Son unas entregas perezosas en casi cualquier aspecto, Namco Bandai debería redirigir esta serie a mejor camino.
