still a fan after 10 years!,
This review is from: Digimon World (PS) (Video Game)
I remember buying this in 2001, travelling down to my local Woolworths store, desperately searching the shelves for a little blue case. I was about 11 years old at the time, an avid fan of the tv series and desperate to play as all my favorite digimon. Having found the game and upon bringing it home, I immediately shoved it into the ps1 and was initially disappointed. Where was the resemblance to the tv series? Where were all my favorite characters, from Tai to Izzy? How come I couldn't play as tentomon or gomamon! I was outraged and in tears!
However ,upon calming down and resuming the game, I couldn't tear myself away from it. Digimon World is the strangest game you'll ever play, more realistic than other monster-raising related games out there, your critter will tell you when it's hungry, needs the use of a lavatory, unhappy or tired! It can change, evolve, you can train it or raise it in whatever fashion you like, whether you're a sadist or a lover of all things cute, it's up to you!
The storyline is entertaining, and there is plenty to do throughout the game. It doesn't really have an end as once you've finished the main digimon gathering aspect of it, you can collect medals, fight in the arena, mess around with trying to get all the digimon and much more! The fun is never-ending, always fresh and it's always fun to play the game through all over again. The non-linier nature and free roaming aspects of the game mean you'll never have to play the exact same game twice! I'd definitely recommend buying it if you enjoy cult games such as Okami, pokemon, Conkers Bad Fur day or anything remotely different or unusual.
There are only a few minor aspects that let it down. There are glitches here and there, the training aspects of the game can get a little repetitive and you may be stuck with Numemon for a while in the beginning.
However, this really is a unique and entertaining game, from 11 to 20 it's kept me entertained and is a found memory of my childhood. I would recommend it to anyone, the multipayer aspect is fun too and you won't find anything else quite like it out there! Give it a go
