    I consider average. The story and gameplay is not bad. But the graphics well... NIS never update the because they thought retro RPG game is best than today RPG modern game. 3D graphics is just like a PS1 and the spirtes look like super nitendo. NIS sound actors is reconsider the best. Buy the Disgaea 2 Dark Hero Days instead.

    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.
