This game was epic fail. If I wanted a virtual pet, I'd get the original ORIGINAL digimon at the least. I wanted to walk around, with my digimon, battle other digimon and tamers, and go thru the evo process till i had the ones i wanted. I could have even gotten something more based on tournament fighting, but with a story...like Gale of Darkness or sumthing. This was simply raising a pet in an environment, and watching it battle....almost like watching someone else play the best part of the game, while you got to do the grunt work. Lame. True, the dusk and dawn games showed that the format was getting old, but this was a more than a step down. Down, that is to say not even a step backwards. As much fun as it was to do the gigapet thing, it was only fun when you got to take it with you on your keys or something. Still, there's a reason they aren't around anymore.
Get another digimon game, this one's a waste of effort. I think I fooled myself into thinking i was having fun till started raising my in rookies for the elevntymillionth time.
