Excerpt: Fans of the Digimon franchise have had to put up with some shoddy games over the years. Thankfully, if Digimon World DS is any indication, it looks like Namco Bandai is finally taking steps to reverse that trend. The process of catching monsters has been made less tedious in this latest game, the battle interface has undergone a few strategic tweaks, and you now have a lot more leeway with regard to training and customizing your collected monsters.
Pros: Loads of options with regard to training and evolving monsters, battle system involves some strategy, Digifarms make it easier to give monsters specific experience, good use of the second screen for battle stats
Cons: Gameplay shamelessly rides Pokémon's coattails, leveling monsters can be a chore, graphics and audio don't push the system
