  1. One the best turn-based strategy RPG I’ve ever played. It combines so many great elements to come together to create a very friendly game that anyone can enjoy.
  2. Everything about this game has it positioned to be an instant hit among fans of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, as well as tactical RPG enthusiasts in general. Deep game play, an endearing story, likeable characters, and stunning hand-drawn backgrounds round out this experience.
  3. Despite a few minor hiccups (and I truly do mean minor), this is hands down the best tactical RPG I have ever played.
  4. 92
    With a nice story and hours of strategy to create, you can not go wrong with this game. I found myself wanting to see the next part of the story even though I knew 3 hours of sleep was not going to get me through the day.
  5. Between the bonus stages, hidden areas, and multiple endings, this game could keep you going for months.
  6. There is so much depth involved with the tremendous amount of variables, that you can get your party decimated in a short few seconds, even though you have all of the upgraded armor and weapons that money could buy.
  7. The controls are very simple and there is a variety of different ways to get things done in this game. The object is to find the most effective way to do it, so you do not waste too much time and energy playing one level.
  8. Disgaeas’s great gameplay is present in La Pucelle, although the game still won’t win any “Best Graphics” awards.

    Very much a powerful gaming experience and serves as a terrific companion piece to "Hour of Darkness." And it goes without saying that every role-playing PS2 owner out there needs to give this a try.
  10. La Pucelle doesn't have as many extras as Disgaea, but it is much heavier on the story, the music tracks are incredibly awesome and the voicework is excellent.
  11. Incredibly well done. It may even be considered better than "Disgaea," at least on the game-play side.
  12. Great character art and solid plot aside, it’s really all about the gameplay and SRPGs don’t get much better than this.
  13. A very competent tactical RPG. There is nothing too revolutionary, though.
  14. One of the most in-depth strategy RPGs ever. [July 2004, p.6]
