    It's a must have if you're into Disgaea. If you like turn-based SRPG's, like Final Fantasy Tactics, then you should also definitely get this; the humor is light, and the characters are cooky. The only thing is is that this game involves heavy grinding if you want to complete everything beyond the story.

    TL;DR - Like turn-based SRPG's? Buy this.

    Disgaea 4 is a brilliant strategy rpg that fits perfectly for the vita. Party, weapon, and armor customization is very high in this game, satisfying those who want to wish to alter strategies in order to beat tough maps. Combat is turn based grid combat that is addicting and enjoyable. Those who may be apprehensive about this kind of rpg may find a wealth of fun and creativity in the battle system. The combat is tedious, so those looking for a quick win aren't going to be happy with this. The story is quirky and humorous, with great characters carried by excellent voice acting. The challenge is great in this game, forcing you to restart the entire story if you fail (unless you reload). Even failure leads to extra cutscenes and dialogue describing your failure and it's consequences. The art is charming and smooth, as well as adding a nice flare to the typical Japanese animation with unique looking characters. the game features a wealth of post game content that is sure to keep players busy for hundreds of hours. Grinding is made more appealing by leveling items and attacks along the way, though do to difficulty spikes you may find yourself doing this more often that you anticipate. Overall this is an enjoyable and deep srpg that is a must for Disgaea fans and a gem amongst the vita rpg collecton, though it is not best suited to those new to the rpg genre. Expand

    Fantastic strategy game, every psv owner should buy this!
    It will take more than 100 hours to finish this game with many game features.
    If you are a streategy fan, then get this one and you will not regret.

    This game is the reason why I bought PS Vita. Was not disappointed and after 100 hours of gameplay I finally felt a need to take a break but there is still more stuff to do in the game. It has some issues like FPS dropdown in Item World and Chara World as well as crash with certain monster personality sounds but it is not gamebreaking. Best game in the series gameplay-wise too, perfect for hand held console. Expand

    The characters are great, the gameplay is smart and the story is both parts touching and hilarious. While the game can have slightly confusing controls and some lackluster features, it doesn't diminish this experience of a funny RPG that has so much content for $39.99.

    Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited doesn't innovate much, but it's still one of the best chapters in the series and a perfect fit for the PS Vita. Strongly recommended.
