    Gameplay is incredible, the story is pretty boring, the graphic is lousy. The game takes hundreds of hours. Value for the money.

    The humor, character creation, strategy, and complete disregard for logic during combat (you can stack your men on top of each other until you are tall enough to fight the sun) score big points, however the amount of time spent re-leveling characters or leveling better versions of an existing character, or the item world, just generally drag things to a halt.

The item world is a dungeon where you can enter a dimension inside an item you own. You can find the element that makes your chewing gum strong, beat it up until it obeys, and force to to move into your sword. The item world is also under attack by space pirates for some reason too. However the item world completely lacks an ongoing story to keep you motivated, and since it's levels are randomly generated it can result in some obnoxious camera difficulties. Overall I felt that the game's pluses were pretty refreshing in this industry, and none of it's faults bring the game to a stop, so I felt like it was a very good overall experience. Expand

    The game is a fleshed out more polished version of the hit Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. It'll provide hundreds of hours of gameplay, multiple endings and a lot of features that weren't included in the first. Some of which are: The dark sun, new character animations, friendlier interface, more fleshed out and useful item world with many more surprises, many different creatures and The game is a fleshed out more polished version of the hit Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. It'll provide hundreds of hours of gameplay, multiple endings and a lot of features that weren't included in the first. Some of which are: The dark sun, new character animations, friendlier interface, more fleshed out and useful item world with many more surprises, many different creatures and classes, a more solid dark assembly system that gets extremely interesting and deep once you start befriending certain parties and becoming the enemies of others. Don't let anyone that hasn't played deep enough to see past the 'stacking' attack fool you. There are so many features in this game that going through it the first time simply isn't enough to see them all, even just the new ones. And you can expect an adult themed humurous and deep storyline, capable of competing with the first, on top of all that. Collapse

    Fans of the original will need little convincing, but for the rest of you, trust me when I say this game's well worth your time. [Aug 2006, p.57]
  2. Nippon Ichi's games are good but Disgaea is undeniably the best. While some might begrudge the ostensible dumbing down with the return to grids and more tightly controlled play (there's no chucking enemies off the maps into oblivion or picking up map furniture as impromptu weaponry here) in reality this makes the game more accessible, more easily understood and ultimately more fun.
  3. Its difficulty and sometimes confusing nature continues to keep the game from being appropriate for newcomers to the genre itself, but memorable characters and dialog, deceptively deep mechanics, and a promise of future sequels make this series, the flagship of Nippon Ichi and NIS America, one of the crowning achievements of this console generation.
