    A game that suffers from a few flaws, but still provides an ample amount of fun. 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.

  1. Fans of the series might find it entertaining to rescue kidnapped kids while battling the Seven Demon Kings, but most people will find precious little to enjoy.

    I'll be honest here: Data Squad really isn't going to make a lot of converts. [Oct 2007, p.60]

    The only thing we can say in this game’s defense is that it’s not necessarily broken. As annoying as it may be, the game is still technically playable, and you can still understand the plot if you want to.
