5.0 out of 5 stars The reason I bought a Vita! April 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you like RPGs or just plain good quality and deep gameplay, along with an awesomely entertaining story, this is the game for you. I already own Disgae 3 for my PS3 but these types of games are much better suited for portable play IMO, so dont miss out on it.

The game initially may seem a bit daunting because of all the terms and stats you need to keep track off, along with the voting system on the school board, but you can easily ignore most of that and just play it at your own pace.

You can either plow throught the amazing and funny story in 20-30 hours or spend 200 hours maxing your party and grinding the item world to buff up all your gear, it really has something for everyone (provided of course you like strategy rpgs or at least rpgs in general).

Have fun and dont let your dad step on your SlayStation portable and lose the 1 million hours of gaming you put into it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic SRPG / RPG April 18, 2012
By JxP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game looks and runs great on the Vita and I highly recommend it to anyone that is a fan of SRPGs or RPGs in general. The touch screen features can be disabled for the most part and don't interfere with the game at all. Both modes work fine, but I prefer it to have controls like the PSP/PS3 versions and that option exists.

The sound is fantastic and the colors are vibrant. I think the best thing about playing this is that it doesn't feel like a port at all compared to playing some of the PSP games on the Vita from the PSN. The other nice thing is that this includes all of the DLC that came out from the PS3 version so there is a ton of content. This game will provide well over 70 hours of gameplay and will help keep us busy as the Vita software library is built up.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Disgaea and Loving It! June 7, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is actually my first Disgaea game, and I'm relatively new to the SRPG genre as well. I wasn't sure if I'd like a hardcore SRPG, but I figured this would be a good place to start since I wanted a new game for my Vita. I'm a huge fan of Japanese culture, games, and the language, so this game fits in perfectly with my tastes. That being said, I can't comment on the English voices because I haven't heard them. If you're like me, switch to Japanese before you start.

A player can jump into the game with little knowledge and be clearing maps relatively quickly. The basics of gameplay are all pretty simple, but then there's an entire league of depth below it for those who wish to go beyond the main story. This is a game you could play for the entire life of your Vita and still have things to do. Great for picking up and playing for 10 minutes or a few hours, whichever you prefer.

That being said, this game is all about numbers and filling bars. I can easily see a casual gamer being put off by it, but if you don't mind grinding levels and farming for that next big weapon, then this game delivers. I personally love the character growth the game offers.

If you're a fan of lighthearted stories, Japanese games, gear farming, and level grinding, this is one of the best. Now I'm already hoping they port Disgaea 4 to the Vita, too, because this is the ideal platform for these games.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive version February 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
I enjoy Disgaea a lot, but sometimes the battles can take a bit too long and I don't always have time to finish, the portable versions have just been brilliant because at anytime you can slip the game into standby and resume whenever you want at the exact point. It's pretty much why I don't by the console versions anymore, I've just gotten really used to this feature.

About the game itself, it's the most expansive Disgaea I've played yet (not played 4 yet). The game while staying similar to previous games in the series expands on character growth and strategy by implementing a classroom system where characters seated next to another in a hub world will gain higher chances to team attack and more. The vita version expands upon this even more by giving generic characters have their own moves unique to their class rather than their weapon type that can really change the battles up. Character classes are numerous and hero classes are even more stacked with new characters in 3 from Disgaea 4.

They added a LOT to this game, all the DLC from the PS3 version, animated character portraits, new skills, more hero characters, it still has english & japanese & more, basically it's the perfect port with more content than the original.
It's a fantastic version and you can't go wrong. It's probably best to buy the hard copy since the game is about 3gb in size, yikes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome. August 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
I played the PS2 Disgaea for 1000+ hours and loved it. This has many new features and improvements. I really enjoy the way you can combo together skills now, the class room seating, teams, new classes, unique class skills (so classes don't become obsolete), new 3d geo panels, and the list goes on. If you liked any of the Disgaea games you can't not love this game. Massive content, endless stuff to do, very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing SRPG dood! April 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great RPG for the Vita. The overall story is amazing. I cant speak highly enough about the orginal story line. The gameplay is somewhat complex but with the starting tutorals you pick it up without any problems. The graphics pop off of the Vita's screen and it has such a great style. I see myself spending several hours on this game. If you enjoy RPG's this one is a must have for Vita owners.
