  1. Digimon World Data Squad was decent as far as gameplay was concerned, but the graphics weren’t the best. I’ve seen better cel-shaded games on the PS2 than this title.

    I'll be honest here: Data Squad really isn't going to make a lot of converts. [Oct 2007, p.60]
  3. All in all, there’s very little reason to get Digimon World: Data Squad. Between the simplistic-yet-frustrating battle system and the absolutely terrible graphics, there just isn’t anything positive to say about the game.

The battle system is interesting, although the battles themselves seldom provide enough of a challenge to necessitate the crafting of any intricate strategies. Music is enjoyable, graphics are average, and travel on the world map is often disorienting, but the monsters are fun, and that's what counts the most. Full Review »
