Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory is the follow-up to Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth which was released in 2015. Both games feature role-playing elements, exploration, interaction with NPCs and Digimon combat. As a sequel – Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory doesn’t do much in the way of paving new ground and in fact looks pretty much like elements have been recycled for the new game. If you put the two games side-by-side you’d be hard pressed to guess which one was which as they both look pretty much the same.
One of the highlights of Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory is that more Digimon have been added to the video game. In Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory you can train and battle over 320 Digimon from the animated TV series. This is pretty much the biggest selling point for the game – so if you were a fan of the last title and wanted more Digimon to fight with – then your wish has been granted!
While it can be fun walking around interacting with people in the game it does seem to take an excruciating amount of time to get from one match to the next. Talking to NPC characters don’t provide much excitement because the majority of them don’t lend anything to the story. When you do get locked into a dialogue scene prepare for plenty of reading on screen and very little animation during the interactions.
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory Review Final Thoughts:
There’s not a ton of selling points to Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory other than if you enjoyed the last game you may get a kick out of this or if you are a hardcore Digimon fan looking to battle then you’ll get plenty of opportunities. Speaking of the battle matches – they transpire pretty quickly almost glossing over the fight itself and should have more animation to them to help drag out the battles and help draw you into the action. Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory is out now for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
