Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth impressions

Digimon is a game we haven't spent a great deal of time with and it's not even a title that was on our radar, but after spending around 4-5 hours with it, we thought it was about time we recorded some impressions, just in case this is a title you were considering.

Having never played a Digimon game before, this was all new to me and immediate impressions brought up thoughts of Pokemon mixed with Persona. Playing as Ami Aiba, you'll receive a Digimon Capture from a mysterious stranger in a chat room and before you know it you are travelling between the real world and the virtual world via terminals. You then acquire your first Digimon (mine was a cute puppy-like creature with large ears), before being recruited to the Kuremi Detective Agency.

The main crux of the game really is to fight with your Digimon, gather more and evolve. 

The battle system is very JRPG, with you selecting your target, special moves and then, hopefully, taking down the enemy. Encounters do seem to be pretty random, although that's usually the case in JRPG's.

With 240 Digimon and Party Members too, there is certainly a deep level of gameplay once you scratch beneath the surface of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth and while it can feel quite linear at times, it is also strangely satisfying too.

You can order Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth from ShopTo below.
