Image of Digimon Masters Online Review

People familiar with the television series of the Digimon cartoon will instantly know what this game is about. Collect and train pet monsters called digimon and protect both the real and digital worlds. Young adults can appreciate this game as a piece of childhood nostalgia and children unfamiliar with the cartoon will also love this game. Even a typical MMO player can find enjoyment in Digimon Masters Online as it follows many of the traditions found in such games.

Pros: Many recognizable digimon, Simple and solid gameplay, Interesting combat.

Cons: Little customization, Few activities outside of combat, Grinding.

Storyline: The Digital World, inhabited by the Digimon, is a virtual space created by network developers. The project was prepared by creating an island or a continent where Digimon could be made closer to humans. The result of this became "visualized" as the Digital World.This world is located within the host computer, which is called Yggdrasil, and is controlled and managed by artificial intelligence. The Digimon is an Analogous Life Form, and each Digimon has an independent A.I. Digimon grow up solely by the Law of the Jungle. This causes them to go through several steps of Digivolution to become more powerful in order to survive. The Digital World is another world, which exists on human computer networks. It exists alongside the Real World of the humans, but it is in a different dimension. By growing larger and stronger, it will become possible for the Digital World to be actualized in the Real World.

Features: There are only four character models from the Digimon Savers show to choose from and these cannot be customised very much. However the digimon pets are the main focus of this game and there are many to collect and digivolve (evolve).

The digimon are faithfully reproduced from the television cartoons and fit perfectly into the aethetic and feel of the game. Animations and sounds are well done and the digimon combat moves are vibrant and engaging.

The player must select a starting Digimon as a partner. This choice is an important one as this Digimon is with the player at all times and serves as the main focus of your combat team. More Digimon can be added to your team by hatching a Digi Egg. Tamers combine this egg with data that drops from enemies to create a rookie Digimon, which can then be leveled normally. Each Digimon can evolve into a more advanced form as they level up. Each form has its own skill points.

The combat in Digimon Masters Online is fairly simple with the usual auto attack and hotkey setup, though all commands are executed by the Digimon leaving the player character to stand around providing soul points. These soul points are constantly drained while a Digimon is in one of its evolved forms causing the player to mix and match evolutions as soul points are spent and regenerate. This provides a fairly unique combat system.

Digimon Masters Online is a good game overall but relies heavily on the model already set up by the cartoon series'. The game has very little innovation outside of what you would expect as the bare bones of a Digimon game and the lack of PvP may leave people wondering what the point is. However this being said, fans of the shows will find enjoyment in training digimon in a multiplayer world.

Here, for your listening pleasure (and in no particular order, I assure you) is a list of some of the best songs ever heard in an MMO.
