Critiques have admittedly been a tad sluggish to floor on-line, however there are actually sufficient to share a spherical up. Nintendo Life has additionally been in a position to assessment the sport and thought it was an incredible expertise – awarding this new Digimon title 8/10 stars.
With that out of the best way, what did different retailers suppose? This is a spherical up of among the opinions to date:
Pocket Tactics gave it 8/10 as nicely – and whereas it loved the sport, it did not fairly scratch the Digimon “itch” fairly just like the World video games. In saying this, it nonetheless thought it was a “actually spectacular” sport:
“The colourful colors, dynamic soundtrack, and suitably grim story make Digimon Survive a very spectacular sport. It doesn’t fairly scratch the digital itch I’ve for the collection just like the World video games do, however it does what it units out to do fantastically.”
PlayStation Lifestyle gave the sport 7/10. It loved the story, fight system and graphics, however however wasn’t in a position to overlook another issues:
“Although not as profitable as Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Digimon Survive has the workings of a cult traditional primarily for Digimon followers. The story, regardless of a number of unbearable characters, explores a darker reinterpretation of the unique collection to its favor, and the fight system is executed reasonably nicely for so simple as it’s. The sport’s artwork model and music have its moments too from composer Tomoki Miyoshi and artist Uichi Ukumo. Nevertheless, many plot factors drag on longer than mandatory, the Karma system is pressured, and the UI is lackluster. Developer Hyde has a spark of a good suggestion right here, however it may not final lengthy sufficient to benefit a sequel.”
Sirus Gaming awarded one other 8/10 – noting how the problems of the sport are rolled and stomped by its greatness:
“General, Digimon Survive is a extremely good sport and has the potential to be a novel storytelling sport for Digimon followers. With using a light-weight novel system and mixing it with RPG-style parts, I actually imagine this sport can enchantment not solely to Digimon followers however to players as nicely.”
And GamerBraves went so far as awarding the sport 9/10 – labelling it the “finest Digimon sport of all time” but in addition probably the greatest thriller Visible Novel titles:
“When you’re a fan of the earlier Digimon video games, it’s a must to know that that is NOT a JRPG. This isn’t a grind-heavy JRPG like World 2 or 3, World DS, World Daybreak/Nightfall or Cyber Sleuth. This additionally isn’t a elevating simulator like the unique World, Re:Digitize or Subsequent Order. This can be a Visible Novel first, SRPG second. Certain, I’ll love a brand new JRPG or elevating simulator, however Survive is such an unbelievable story-driven expertise that makes it definitely worth the growth hell it was in.”
