    Hacker's Memory follows the same pattern that the previous title had but at the same time going one step beyond. A great combat system, an interesting story and characters and mostly the great soundtrack, with a few new themes added, and also a better pace on completing side missions complete an amazing title in this franchise.

    Although Digimon: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory is a blast to play and gives gamers a lot to do, it's essentially just more of the same.

    Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker’s Memory is a worthy successor. It is not a jaw-dropping, life-changing piece, but it is an enjoyable experience especially for a Digimon fan. The story is engaging from the first minute of gameplay and I personally found it difficult to turn the game off to go to bed. Overall, Hacker’s Memory is addicting and extremely satisfying, and here’s to hoping for a similar title in the near future.

    Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory may not be a true sequel to the 2016 original, but it’s a better version of a familiar experience. The visuals don’t shine as brightly on PS4 and players will have to wander through a lot of recycled content before encountering much new. While it would have been nice to have new areas, Hacker’s Memory is carried by its profoundly personal story, engrossing combat and progression mechanics, and various quality of life improvements. While newcomers may find the experience a little confusing, returning players will appreciate meeting up with returning characters and experiencing the enhancements implemented to improve the experience. Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory may not be a true sequel, but the quality put into the story, combat and progression make it a worthy successor.

    Despite some of the shortcomings I found in the narrative and its inability to simply impress when it came to the conclusion of most cases, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker’s Memory manages to hold its weight. It's saying something when compared to other RPGs in the fighting monster team genre. The true stars of the show are the digimon, as they indeed should be, and there’s enough zaniness in the rest of the game to keep you entertained throughout its long running time. There’s room for improvement, though, and should the developers choose to keep this side of Digimon series going, we could see something truly amazing in the future. As it stands now, Hacker’s Memory is not a bad way to hang out with some of my new favorite digital friends.

    It feels so much like the original that even its few new additions like new Digimon and Dominion Battles start to slowly but surely feel less impactful over time. All the same charm, quirks, and missteps of the original game are captured all over again in Hacker’s Memory but for a full $59.99 price tag it just feels like this sequel could have, and should have, brought more to the table.

    A confusing product. It’s too complex and longwinded for kids, but too easy, repetitive, and derivative for most adults. The game was made with fans of the original Cyber Sleuth in mind, but will frustrate those same fans with its rampant rehashing. Hardcore Digimon devotes may find something to enjoy here, but most will want to forget Hacker's Memory.

    Things that suprised me with this title were how much more crisp and better things look, even the music has been amped to fit the cyberpunk theme which in itself brings life to Digimon.

    I really enjoyed the first game, and so far i've put about 8-10 hours into this one, from what i've seen and played so far, its really good.

    My only complaint is that there Aren't enough new things going on here, but don't let that ruin the experience for you.

    Really solid RPG for those times when you just want to unwind and play through a fun story.
    If you like Digimon and enjoyed the first Cyber Sleuth game, you will enjoy this one as well. Only downside is that there is not a ton of innovation over the original game but I doubt the folks this game was made for will care too greatly about that.

They add new locations, new digimon, a new battle style which is really fun and adds depth to certain characters. if you liked the first digimon cyber sleuth you will certainly enjoy this one. The only bad thing is the reusing of some locations but even that did not bother me because the story stands on its own overall it definitely deserves a higher end score Expand

That does not change in the sequel. Heck, the start of the game is basically "I'll prove to everyone that I'm not a hacker by using these super hacker powers that were forced on me!". Just...think about that for more than a few seconds.

    What is worse is that this game might as well be an asset flip. Their own assets, sure, but most of this game's models is from the original Cyber Sleuth game. Even worse is that they will end up selling both games twice with no content added on when the inevitable PS4 release happens.

    These games getting acclaim is only going to make this greed and laziness more prevalent...But I guess if that's what people want, there's little a minority voice on the internet can do.
