The Story So Far
Lucemon has been found! Deep within the Ice Labyrinth, Marcus and the gang have found the Cho-Mao Digimon and its “tamer”. After a fierce battle, Lucemon is weakened. What seemed like a victory for DATS changed when Lucemon absorbs the final code key and grew even more powerful. The Dark Area has now expanded throughout the Digital World, and our heroes must fight their way through in the hopes of defeating Lucemon and restoring balance to the Digital World.
The Ice Labyrinth was nothing more than a maze. No puzzles or tricks. Just find your way through and fight some enemies along the way. It didn’t really take me all that long to get through this area, but I will admit that the fight with Lucemon was a bit of a slog. He was incredibly fast, taking a turn in between each party member’s turns. Thankfully, I had Lalamon set to Angewomon, which gave me a fantastic healing skill. ShineGreymon was my big hitter, with Pandamon doing some decent hits in between support skills.
While I think that the combat is fairly easy at times, the strategy that can be involved is really interesting. If some more work was done refining battles, it would have been a much better battle system. It’s still fun, don’t get me wrong. There are just some major tweaks that I feel were needed before releasing the game.
Next area is shaping up to be the final area. Tune in next week for the exciting conclusion!
PS: I mentioned before that I was going to do some of the side missions before doing this post. I looked into what they entail, and they are simply boss fights that allow you to get some other Digimon forms. Most of them don’t really appeal to me, so I am going to go straight for the end at this point. For those of you who are interested, some of the side digimon include Darkdramon and BanchoLeomon. I can also fight Yushima’s Digimon, Kamemon and his evolved forms. Don’t let my lack of interest in these side quests deter you from going for them. They are cool looking Digimon, but I like what I’ve got right now.
