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!

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.

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.

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.

Nippon Ichi’s Disgaea series is a tactical RPG franchise renowned for its deep, engaging mechanisms, debuting on the PlayStation 3 as Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice to continue this tradition. As happened with its two predecessors on the PlayStation Portable, the third entry received a port to the PlayStation Vita as Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention, with this iteration of the game perhaps being the best this reviewer has played thus far, thanks to some new features.

Disgaea 3 sports a structure similar to its predecessors, with a hub area where the player can perform functions such as purchase new equipment and consumable items, go to a classroom session that replaces the Dark Assembly in the previous games to use Mana gained from killing enemies to pass proposals through the student council to unlock new character classes, reincarnate characters of certain classes into more powerful iterations of their classes, and so forth, or go to the Item World to level up items to make them more powerful with each floor conquered.

The story battles necessary to advance the game largely resemble those in the third game’s prequels, with a spot from which the player can draw characters to walk across the map to attack enemies and use special skills, with victory coming when the player defeats all enemies. Although player death results in a Game Over, the third installment merely slaps players on the wrist by taking them back to the hub area instead of the title screen, with the player still needing to pay to revive all characters that died in the lost battle, this aspect making the third game significantly easier than its predecessors.
