Excerpt: Digimon World: Data Squad is yet another Digimon game, and this time, you have joined DATS (aka Data Squad). Now you and your partner, Agumon (after all, how could it be a Digimon game without an Agumon), will face off against the Seven Demon Kings. Visually, Data Squad is pretty good. The levels, while not necessarily huge, have a lot of variety and details that make the scenery interesting to roam through.
Excerpt: This is a review of the latest console Digimon title. Before I review it though, I'm going to talk about a completely different game. That game is Evergrace. Evergrace was made by a small-time developer, known for the Armored Core series and a bunch of mediocre RPGs. That company is "From Software." From Software began their development of Evergrace for PlayStation One, but then ported it over so it could be a near-launch title for PlayStation 2.
Excerpt: It all begins with a typical mission on a sunny digital island. The hero, Marcus, is here to defeat a trouble-maker and return it to Digiegg form. It turns out that Marcus and his Digimon, Agumon, are members of DATS, the Digital Accident Tactics Squad. DATS’s goal is to keep things peaceful between the real and digital worlds.
Excerpt: Namco Bandai is at it again with Digimon World: Data Squad, a grinding role-playing game that's content to slap the Digimon name on some of the most tired Japanese RPG conventions and call it a day. But if you love Digimon and have a high tolerance for random encounters, as well as shallow turn-based combat, then boy howdy, you're in luck! That the inclusion of stickers with the game warrants back-of-the-box mention should tell you a lot.
Pros: It comes with stickers! Everyone likes stickers
Cons: Shallow, derivative turn-based combat, By telling you which attacks to use, the game basically plays itself, It's easy to get lost in the indistinct, repetitive environments, Frequency of random encounters is stifling
