Digimon Masters Online
Digimon Masters is a free to play 3D MMORPG featuring the popular Digimon franchise. The conflict has spilled once again from the Digital World into the Real World and the fate of both worlds will rest on the hands on a new generation of Tamers. This long-awaited game will feature a deeper RPG experience, enhanced graphics and adrenaline pumping real-time combat – a departure from the turn-based action found previously in Digimon Battle. Both new and long-time Digimon fans will soon be able to immerse themselves in this epic adventure. The game will be available across the world in English for the first time.
Hundreds of Digimon stretching from the first 5 anime series will be available for capture, including PawnChessmon (White), Gabumon, Veemon, Guilmon, and Piyomon alongside many others. Each Digimon will benefit from their DATS member’s strengths and weaknesses, so a Digimon trained by Marcus will differ from one raised by Yoshino.
Digimon Masters provides a simple interface coupled with an intuitive control scheme that is completely hassle-free. With more than 1,000 characters featured from seasons 1 through 5 of the Digimon anime, not only is it faithful to the series' art design, Digimon Masters closely follows a story that will satisfy both loyal fans of the series as well as welcoming new gamers to the Digital World.

A lot of people say it's pay to win, but there is nothing to win, you can only progress.
The cash shop, it's not necessary to pay with real money because there is already a lot of players who sells cash shop item for in game money.
The prices are kinda high 10 to 15 Tera for a burst mode item (which represent 10-15 million)
Getting that amount of money will take some time obviously, selling low data (beast and dragon) are the most selling item.
If you want to spend money on the game, I recommand you buy burst mode item or riding item but never ever buy cash shop digimon eggs, you'll mostlikely get a level 3 which isnt good at all.
Leveling his starter first is the best thing to do since he's got all his evolution slot available and unlock his burst mode at level 71 with a few quest. Level him to 90 with a cloning of 6 or 8 on Atk and Evade and you'll be able to solo Monster Cards level 7, it drops the item evolutor. The item is used to unlock evolutions slot.
At Tamer level 70 you unlock 6 dungeons, soon to be 8. They are others but not as important as these one. Three easy mode, which can be done with a full party of burst mode digimon (level 65+) even the starter is good enough for it and three normal mode which require a Jogress level digimon (Alphamon Oryuuken, Omegamon or Apocalymon) boosted by accessories with decent stats or near perfect stats (which require level 70 tamer and is absurdly long to obtain because of the RNG rolls).
The best advice i can give you is, don't aim for the normal mode end game (dungeons). You'll probably stop playing before having the necessary equipment to do them. Play it for fun, enjoy the little things, explore, be nostalgic, take it easy.

The game suffers from being unbalanced. Some Digimon are ridiculously strong that can strike out almost any raid boss while most of the monsters are rather on the weakish side. To make them more strong...either you farm for the heck-long amount of hours...or pay money. To add even more to this...some areas give for quests a lot of experience...while still being demanding which is good unless you die several times despite the height of your level comparing to monter's.
Following this...if you really want to actually mean something in this game....you will definitely face the moment when you will have to pay that goddamned money for evoluters or whatever to improve your status. Packages are the flag products. If you bet on farming some high level items you must be patient and be on high level.
The game requires a lot of time and it's party oriented. Gather, hatch, kill- all in all this was the reason I've quitted the game. It simply offered nothing more that grinding. No fun quests, no advanced storyline.
For the good side I have to compliment the devs. Yeah they make the effort to juice out the franchise...what's a pity the latest Spirit Digimons System is stupid as hell.
All in all...it's a pretty tiresome game for me...But not bad at all.
Gameplay: At first the gameplay makes you think of WOW but after you get through the first ten to twenty minutes you realize that this game makes WOWs look horrible. Instead of having one person to level you in fact have two your tamer and your digimon and you can get multiple digimon with a unique hatching system that will either have you jumping for joy or screaming with rage. However that doesn't mean it doesn't have its flaws. One of the most hated things in DMO is the fact that your digimon will dedigivolve if you run low on tamer points. Another hated thing is the hatching system because I've seen people hatch every digimon on their first try and others who have tried over twenty and failed. So overall gameplay 92/100
Graphics- The graphics on this game are amazing if you look up pictures of the digimon you have in DMO on google you will see how amazing the 3d models look and they get right down to the details of the face and nose. It's a little glitchy with the graphics because sometimes your digimon may disappear then reappear three seconds later with no explanation but overall some of the best graphics I've seen on an mmo so 96/100
Sound- Unfortunately I'v don't listen to the sound because I play music while i play so it doesn't count to the main score
Overall Score....................... 95/100 because this game is addicting and will have you spending days just trying to get a certain digimon or level. I would've given it a 100/100 but unfortunately the hatching system sucks and so does the digivolution system along with the fact that you'll experience glitches at least once a week if you play daily but other then that its a great game that will have you entertained for months before you even start to get bored.
Secondly The actually in-game game play with quests and leveling system I find next to flawless it works surprisingly well having a different leveling system for skills compared to their actual level as well as a leveling system for your character.
But the Digivolution doesn't work for me at all, the fact that once digivolved you can just run out after 1 or 2 minutes since your tamer level is low, is horrible especially since your character levels so much slower then your partners.
Sound: The sound quality is great its catchy but also the lack of changes in music is bad it just doesn't work in the way it should, a few more tunes in and around would make the game even more enjoyable.
Graphics: The games graphics run fairly smoothly even on a 1.12GHZ Processor, I can imagine on my proper computer I'd be running completely lag free. The graphics also look great especially for free to play game.
Overall average: 87.33/100
Very enjoyable after all the rage and with very little penalty for failing things its great, prepare to lose several hour to this game without realising.
Graphics: The graphics are in my view Medium and could be improved but they still look pretty good. The game was made for directx 9 and is incredibly easy to play on a crumby video card such as mine and that is a relief for someone that is in a situation such as mine. This game strongly lacks customization of the characters since there is no customization what so ever in the beginning although it is slightly made up for with clothes that your character can wear with different colors, etc.
Sound: I love the music in the game but it doesn't come close to drawing me into the game more such as other games have. The quality is pretty good non the less and still kept the digimon feel to it.
Gameplay: The gameplay seems fairly odd at first but then you will definitively understand the game more as you go further. It has a lot of quests to keep one busy and it's convenient that they allow you to locate NPC's since finding them by yourself may take more time. It's a bonus that they don't have auto-run for quests since that lacks any effort of playing at all. They did a great job with merging the original gameplay feel of training digimon and leveling them with the gameplay of an MMO. I myself love trying to transform the digimon to the next, stronger form as well as catching as many as I can so I have options of all kinds. Overall the gameplay isn't amazing but still has an addictive feel to it.
Overall Rating: 8.5/10)
- Fun gameplay
- Lots of digimon to capture and keep you entertained
- Using Digimon as mounts
- Good graphics
- Balanced gameplay
- 3 hour limit of gameplay every 10 hours. (talked about being removed: Update October 25th)
- to be a hardcore gamer on this you will most definitely have to pay real money to catch all the digimon
- could have some more dramatic music in areas
Note: To catch multiple digimon you will have to keep killing the same digimon untill you get a Mercenary DigiEgg. You will know when you get one because there will be a beam of light coming from the egg on the ground after killing the digimon.
Graphics: The graphics in this game are good, especially for a Free to Play. There were a few glitches here and there, but not too many, and nothing too noticeable. Graphics get a 9/10.
Sound: The music in the game is good, but it's not something I personally wanted to listen to as I played. The sound effects, such as interacting with an NPC, hitting a Wild Digimon, or competing a quest sounded nice and smooth, I liked em. Sound gets a 7.5/10
Gameplay: There's a lot to say about the gameplay. If you only play MMORPGs where you can move with WASD, stay away. This game can only be played by mouse. Other than that, after getting used to the controls, it's fairly easy to use. If you don't feel like getting used to them, though, you can always change them. The fighting system has you controlling a Digimon that fights for you. 1-8 is for commands and potions, whatever you need, while F1-F8 is the currently controlled Digimon's skills. Above that is a little bar in which you can Digivolve and return to your rookie form. When you defeat a wild digi, they will usually drop a scannable egg, a cracked egg, or both, which contain items like clothes, potions, etc. If you're very lucky, you will get a Mercenary Digiegg. With data chips, which you get from scannable eggs, you can hatch it and have another Digimon that you can train. Although, at the moment, the chances of hatching one are VERY low, and the hatches of getting a Mercenary egg are almost just as low. It IS still CBT, so it may hopefully be changed later on, we can only hope. At the moment, there is also a timer. Because there is only one server, they want everyone who can play to actually be able to play, so everyone only gets 3 hours a day. This should be taken off once another server or 2 are added. Gameplay gets a 8/10
I give Digimon Masters Online an 8.5/10. The game has a few flaws right now, but it will surely get better in the future. I hope this game gets as popular as it is in Korea.
this game, unlike what most think, isn't for the overall player base but for digimon fans alone. the game is far from finished and some of the early decisions when they went into OB made them loose about 50-60% of their player base. they went into OB really unprepared, with only 4 mercenaries besides the 3 starters, no actual events of any kind (to either make players come and work together or item events or anything).
the game overall is quite fun to play since the main point of a digimon game is to see digimon act and react with each other, not humanoid character act and react between themselves. too bad the game is so far from completion and that the GMs and devs barely give a rats' ass about their players. at least the community is quite large and somewhat helpful (if you meet the right people).
gameplay- though its still in closed beta, i don't see many changes happening between now and later. first thing you notice is the game is only point and click to move, there is no wsad like most mmos which is very annoying trying to click on npcs with a bunch of people standing by it and running all over the place. as you would imagine, your digimon does all the fighting, and what does your actual character do, he just stands there, no attack animations, nothing. the view distance is strange, when you run you can only see about 10 yards in front of you, but when you stand still it goes out to much farther.
[[pros]]-the music is very good, id have to say the best aspect of the game is the background music. the art style, while at first looks really bad, if you zoom in actually is very good, the cell shading is very well done, unfortunatly zoomed out it still looks terrible.
[[cons]]-the game is just really boring, your character doesn't actually do anything. no character customization at all, everyone plays the same one of the people, and everyone starts off with one of 3 digimon, which means there was a few hundred blond haired boys running around with the little orange raptor [augumon(spelling?)] i saw some people using different digimon, but to be honest i couldn't stay enthused long enough to figure out how to get one, i think monsters will randomly drop a digimon egg that you have to unhatch or something. very, very small bag space, at level 6 i found myself running into issues with having all these data things that im told are important, along with your standard quest items, and different color eggs that don't stack in inventory. There is no real direction, i got lost many times, keep in mind i only got my digimon up to level 11 and my character was 6 or something, your digimon and character level at different speeds for some reason. after doing the starter quests at level 5, i somehow ended up at a place with level 13-15 monsters, so i had to backtrack to figure out where the heck i was intended to be at.
[[overall]]- i would not play it, it's intended for the young audiance for sure, but even a young audiance deserves a decent game, this one is not, and me being 21 years old and have been playing mmo's for the past 6 years, still got lost numerous times. i can only imagine where 10 year old me would accidently stumble into
