I've always wondered what the CD Battle game is like.  Does it read data off audio CDs like the Monster Rancher games to create the battles?

It's similar but much more limited.  Each player inserts a CD to create a three person team, then you fight a turn based rpg style battle, and that's it.  As soon as one side wins the battle, you go back to the team creation screen and can try a new CD(s) and fight again.

Wow, it sounds more like a glorified tech demo than an actual game.

It was a quick cash grab to get in on the barcode battle thing.  And I suppose it worked and made a good profit, as it couldn't have cost much to throw together.

Still, it would've been so much better had they thrown together a small world map, a town, and a dungeon or two; even if you could complete it under an hour, it would've been soooo much better.

Yep. Lost potential. It's too bad we don't see more of those kinds of games on current systems. I guess CDs just aren't a thing anymore with everything going digital-only.
