    Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days is a great PSP title and the best strategy-RPGs available on the system.
  2. Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days is the ultimate version of this game. It's not a simply porting from PlayStation 2 of Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories, but a better and complete edition of this tactical role-playing game. With many improvements to the gameplay and added content such as stages and characters, newcomers are given an excellent place to start the series and Disgaea fans will be happy to play it. Highly recommended.
  3. Dark Hero Days offers exactly what we could expect form a production with Nippon Ichi's seal - plenty of fun, unlimited hours in front of the PSP and an outstanding storyline that makes us laugh and smile from time to time. With a few new additions, Disgaea 2's back at its best.
  4. Disgaea 2 is a deep and flexible game and should it get its hooks in you will lose your mind to it. That fact alone begs the question: why reinvent?
  5. All in all, Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days is a great strategy RPG, and while I still prefer the original title's story line and characters, there's nothing to really complain about when it comes to the gameplay.
  6. 58
    In the end, I'd say Dark Hero Days is mildly recommendable, but with a huge caveat: It's a decent Disgaea... just not anywhere close to the best Disgaea.

    This game is pure genious, even has disgaea 3 characters as playable characters and has so much replay value to keep users playing for months and months without getting bored. Expand

    Disgaea 2 Dark Hero Days is a port of the Disgaea 2 from the Playstation 2. It has some additional features such as the inclusion of Disgaea 3 Characters as playable characters and a new gameplay feature which was seen in Disgaea 3. Though the game's storyline isnt as dynamic or humorous as Disgaea 1's, fans will recognize alot of easter eggs from the first game and will surely enjoy the slightly different gameplay structure from the original and the predecessor of this game.

    another great SRPG from nippon itchi . this is probubly my least favorite disgaea game although dont get me wrong its stil a solid SRPG that should be played by every SRPG fan with out a doubt . my issues are Disgaea is built around goofy main charicters like laharl and Moa . Adel just doesnt really fit as the lead charicter he just to normal and a goody goody . Axel would have been amuch better choice because he's the biggest Goof . i also didnt ike the new judge system very much . the item world isnt the best yet eather unlike disgaea 3 which they perfected . alot of the problems i had with disgaea 1 are still present but the voice acting is fun the story is entertaining i love that etna , floan and laharl make appearnces in this game . there is new content with the Axel mode which tells Axels story . and it follows the disgaea model by giving you 100s of hours of gameplay . how many games can you say that about?
