The game starts about halfway into the Digimon Savers season (Season 5). Marcus Damon and Agumon are the main characters and while the others are introduced as the storyline progresses, they are not as deeply developed as they would be if you have seen the anime. The voice acting however, is spot on and the characters behave exactly as they do in the anime.
The game revolves around investigating areas in the Digital World where rouge Digimon are causing problems, which later in the season is common. Later, you go on a mission in the Human and Digital worlds to exterminate the Seven Demon Kings.
The environments themselves are rich with color and the occasional hexagonal data gap however, you cannot move the camera very much in the field. It's more annoying than hindering and also annoying are the lack of save points in dungeons and no 'quick-escape' item.
There are from fifteen up to thirty different evolutions for each main Digimon, a strange twist on the traditional sense of Digimon. Each evolution has a number of requirements to attain it and once that happens, it's time to use the Digi-Soul Charge in battle to open up the new Digimon.
Overall, I like this game and do not see enough bad points to draw people away from it. The asking price is very reasonable and the game is quite good for a first time Digimon console RPG.
The fun of Digimon(much like pokemon) has been the idea of choosing a good, well rounded team of 'mon and using them to their full potential, it forces you to really pay attention(though in truth neither series' have ever been THAT hard) and giving you further variety without throwing everything out at you.
Further, there was a certain kind of 'charm' to visiting a digital world with digital towns', like .hack emulates so well the first three games in the 'mon series have that sense of MMO while only still being single player, you get glimpses of 'the real world' and feel even further like you actually care a little bit, like these aren't super-powered kids or creatures but digital constructs with real consequences in the 'real' world.
It's hard to explain...
Anyway, where the game makes its' 'mon look pretty and flashy it lacks in the original charm of having a story that makes you feel like you're playing with people you can learn to care about.
As a dungeon crawler alone, unfortunately this doesn't work, they are short dungeons' at best and lacking in variety when you're going back and forth.
A 3/5 if there ever was one. Good for Digimon fans', bad for RPGers
My only gripe: the voice acting. While it's not an issue with every character (a few of them are actually well done), the voices of Marcus and Agumon are just so grating and poorly done that I have to knock off one star. The other voice actors perform alright, with the rare good voice performance. Unfortunately, you hear Marcus and Agumon talk more than anyone else in the game. Why weren't the best talents reserved for the main character and his digimon? If any of the characters are going to outright suck, it should be the minor ones!
My recommendation: mute your tv and pretend it's one of the older digimon games with no VO. True, you miss out on the background music, while not astounding it's not outright terrible either. You can also provide your own BGM with an MP3 player.
