Data Squad is Digimon's first try at an RPG on the PS2 system, and unfortunately, it comes off to a bit of a grinding start.

The game starts about halfway into the Digimon Savers season (Season 5). Marcus Damon and Agumon are the main characters and while the others are introduced as the storyline progresses, they are not as deeply developed as they would be if you have seen the anime. The voice acting however, is spot on and the characters behave exactly as they do in the anime.

The game revolves around investigating areas in the Digital World where rouge Digimon are causing problems, which later in the season is common. Later, you go on a mission in the Human and Digital worlds to exterminate the Seven Demon Kings.

The environments themselves are rich with color and the occasional hexagonal data gap however, you cannot move the camera very much in the field. It's more annoying than hindering and also annoying are the lack of save points in dungeons and no 'quick-escape' item.

There are from fifteen up to thirty different evolutions for each main Digimon, a strange twist on the traditional sense of Digimon. Each evolution has a number of requirements to attain it and once that happens, it's time to use the Digi-Soul Charge in battle to open up the new Digimon.

Overall, I like this game and do not see enough bad points to draw people away from it. The asking price is very reasonable and the game is quite good for a first time Digimon console RPG.

it is an awesome game if you played the other digimon worlds it's alot like digimon world 3 and pokemon XD mixed. Gameplay is awesome it was weird at first but once you play it and get used to it it is pretty fun. A plus for me is that the digimon can become several different digimon if the person wanted kinda like digimon world 3 for example lalamon is the second digimon you get i liked it as a healer but i had to keep doing support commands to get it to want to heal anything. so later i got it to be able to become gatomon so i stuck with that. so basically if you dont like a certain digimon you can swicth for a different one.

First things' first, this game actually isn't too bad for hardcore digimon fans', by itself it follows a little bit of the story but unlike the first three(and much like the ps2 era has been) it loses a bit of its' magic in trying too hard to convolute the story and gameplay, it tries to hard to make the digimon seem "cool" and give you access to all the evolution and ends up falling short in that with just a little work, EVERY digimon can be every OTHER digimon, where's the fun in choosing a team like that?

The fun of Digimon(much like pokemon) has been the idea of choosing a good, well rounded team of 'mon and using them to their full potential, it forces you to really pay attention(though in truth neither series' have ever been THAT hard) and giving you further variety without throwing everything out at you.

Further, there was a certain kind of 'charm' to visiting a digital world with digital towns', like .hack emulates so well the first three games in the 'mon series have that sense of MMO while only still being single player, you get glimpses of 'the real world' and feel even further like you actually care a little bit, like these aren't super-powered kids or creatures but digital constructs with real consequences in the 'real' world.

It's hard to explain...

Anyway, where the game makes its' 'mon look pretty and flashy it lacks in the original charm of having a story that makes you feel like you're playing with people you can learn to care about.

As a dungeon crawler alone, unfortunately this doesn't work, they are short dungeons' at best and lacking in variety when you're going back and forth.

A 3/5 if there ever was one. Good for Digimon fans', bad for RPGers

This game is fun. I will pick it back up once I get bored playing WWE 13' my PS3 in my free time. Just wished I had the Fat-boy PS3 to play PS2 games on. Anyway if you a Digimon fan you will like. I just wished all the game included all the Hardcore Digimon like GeoGreymon, but it is an anime so they have to have Candlemon. Other than that I wished they made a fighter other than rumble arena.

This game have quite a number of problems that the other reviewers didn't address - loading time is horrible between any action whenever transfering from one area to another or even any action during digimon fights command functions takes too long - making some people get boring quickly. Fights tend to be too frequent, with a fight seemly every ten steps so it is easy to forgot what the map looks like and where you are going. That's pretty much the negative aspects of this game as the other reviewers have covered all the positive benefits of this game.

I would love to have given this game a higher rating, I really would have. The graphics are actually pretty good and consistent with the style, the character design is well-done, the digievolution system is detailed (if a little frustrating at times), the skill and ability system is a lot of fun, the storyline is interesting, and renamon is in it (which is a plus in my book).

My only gripe: the voice acting. While it's not an issue with every character (a few of them are actually well done), the voices of Marcus and Agumon are just so grating and poorly done that I have to knock off one star. The other voice actors perform alright, with the rare good voice performance. Unfortunately, you hear Marcus and Agumon talk more than anyone else in the game. Why weren't the best talents reserved for the main character and his digimon? If any of the characters are going to outright suck, it should be the minor ones!

My recommendation: mute your tv and pretend it's one of the older digimon games with no VO. True, you miss out on the background music, while not astounding it's not outright terrible either. You can also provide your own BGM with an MP3 player.
