"Were going digital"
Welcome to the wonderful Digital World, where darkness and light intertwine with each other for the ultimate card battle game ever made! So strap in, while we become digital, so we can submerge our self into a new world!
Graphics - 10/10
The graphics in this game are some of the best for the PSX. First let's talk about the card details and other stuff like that, and end with the polygon battles. The card details and all of the other graphics that make up the world are nice. They are so smooth, and Bandai did a great job with the resolution, and the frame-rate is great. The polygonal battles, (where you can see a 3-D view of the two digimon attacking each other) are excellent. The frame-rate is pretty good, and could be a little bit better, but for me, it's perfect. The best part is that you can turn the polygonal battles on or off, at least giving you some control.
Sound effects/Music - 9/10
The sound effects, and the music in this game, are perfect. The only thing that I didn't like, is that the music is a little too repetitive, but most of the music I don't mind, but it can get rather annoying after playing this game for a couple of hours. The sound effects from blasting your opponent with a boom bubble, or a pepper breath is awesome.
Gameplay - 10/10
First off, this is a very fun and exciting game to play, you'll every minute of this game, like I do! The controls seam a little bit hard when you first play the game, but after a few minutes of playing, you soon start to learn that it's really easy. This game is full of challenges, and side quests, that have a twist. The twist to the side quests is that if you don't do them, you might not get some cards. Which I won't say, but they're are 12 special cards in the game.
Story - 10/10
The story in this game is so full of challenges that will test you ability's as a master tamer. There are mysterious characters, and some characters that you'll recognize if you watch the animated digimon shows. You start off as a boy, and yes that's the only person that they have, sorry. And your goal is to become the best card player in the world, along the way, you'll gain new partner cards, and you'll meet up with good and bad characters a like that you will eventually have to battle against. As I said before, this is one of the most detailed and longest story in a card game, and it might even be a long game in general. Now I don't want to give away too much, but this game is broken up into three seasons.
Replay Value - 10/10
The replayability in this game is so great, it's off the charts. You can keep battling everyone so you can have a one-on-one chance to battle BlackWarGreymon, which you need like some 300 battles in order to do that. You also have to try to collect every card in the game, so you can create the best deck in the entire world.
Overall Factor - 10/10
This is one of the best, if not the best card games ever made into a video game. It is filled with suspense as you work your way towards him in the first season, or them in the third. If doesn't matter if you just started the game, or if you almost completed the game to a 100% on everything, you just keep going back for more. I play the game at least 3 - 7 hours a day 'cause it's addicting. Well I hope that my review help you out with understanding how this game is played, and what to expect when you pick this game up.
Rent or buy - BUY!!!!!
I don't need to say anything else about this game anymore, 'cause I know that you like it already.
