4.0 out of 5 stars Good Port of a Solid Game February 15, 2008
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A fairly direct port of the popular PS2 game "Disgaea: Hour of Darkness", "Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness" mostly keeps things the same, though a few new features are added.

The game should be familiar to anyone who has played the original Disgaea, but as a refresher for those who haven't: Disgaea is a turn-based tactical role playing game. Using a grid system, characters move, attack, and use special abilities. The RPG element comes in as characters improve through battling, compared to the disposable soldiers of many RTS games. There are, furthermore, many classes to choose from, including warriors, mages, and thieves. This is a system seen in games like Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy Tactics, and many others.

For its part, Disgaea brings a lot of elements that are unique to it and its sequel. For example, the RPG system includes not only the effects on the character's leveling up, but also a teacher/student system that grants abilities to other characters. Geo Symbols, another feature of Disgaea's combat, are colored pyramids that, when put on certain location types, can give off various effects to connected areas. The ability to lift and throw characters, either as an offensive attack or to give allies a boost in a certain direction, is also present. Units with similar types can use team-up attacks that boost their power when they're near each other.

In Disgaea, you take the role of Laharl, the Prince of the Underworld. After being awoken from a 2-year nap, Laharl finds that his father, the King, has passed away, and in his absence the underworld has been rife with conflict over who the next overlord will be. With his faithful vassal Etna in tow, Laharl seeks to regain control of his empire.

5.0 out of 5 stars The PS2 Classic Goes Portable January 31, 2008
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Original Disgaea on the PS2 was a sleeper hit. Creeping into the gaming scene. Those who played it were blown away by it. Eventually word of mouth helped the game become incredibly popular. However, the original Cult Classic on the PS2 is hard to find. And when you do find it, it often comes at unreasonable prices. Luckily, if you're a PSP owner, you can play the original game in a whole new light. You are essentially getting the same game, only with several extras.

For those who never played the original, Disgaea centers on Laharl. The prince of darkness who has been asleep for some time. As Laharl and with a gaggle of allies, your job is to conquer the Netherworld. The adventure is full of a lot of fun. Some hilarious antics as well as a really likeable cast of characters. The release on the PSP is even better than the original, and it's easier to find.

Disgaea takes the simple formula of a strategy RPG and mixes in its own little quirks. Battling in Disgaea is quite simple. You send your units into battle and you move them into attack position and then you execute your strategy accordingly. Unlike many tactical RPGs, battles in Disgaea can go fast. The maps are also incredibly large. In battle characters can also use abilities. The more times you use an ability, the more abilities you gain. Another great part about battle is that if your characters are standing next to one another and attack the same enemy, they'll perform a duel attack. As battles progress you'll also fill up a battle gauge in the corner of the screen. The more you fill up the gauge the more bonuses you get at the end of the battle.

There are a couple of things about Disgaea's system that separate it from other strategy RPGs. Some of them bizarre, others not so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prinny d00d! January 3, 2008
By alex
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Facts fist: this is a port of the original Disgaea for PS2. There are some new features: an extra game mode where you play as Etna rather than Laharl, widescreen graphics, and some new boss battles (including one with the main characters from Disgaea 2). Still, it's the same main game.

But with a game as good as Disgaea, this is no problem at all! The price for the PSP version is similar to the PS2 original, but you get a few more features and the chance to play it on the go - a feature you'll greatly appreciate if you become as hooked on the game as I have. Nippon Ichi specialize in strategy RPGs, and out of all their excellent releases, Disgaea is probably the best and the most welcoming to new players.

If you love the original Disgaea, or you are a fan of Nippon Ichi in general, you really don't need to read this review. But for new players, here's a rundown. Disgaea is an isometric strategy RPG, meaning that the story unfolds by playing through sequential turn-based battle stages. If you've played Final Fantasy Tactics, probably the definitive SRPG, it has similar basic game mechanics. In Disgaea, you start with two main characters (Laharl and Etna) in your party. However, the only way to progress is to build a strong roster of characters of different classes, each with different special abilities. Leveling up characters in the basic classes, such as warrior and mage, gradually unlocks new and more powerful classes. The main storyline battles are tough, and you'll need to do a lot of leveling to play successfully; however, this is much more enjoyable than in a typical RPG, because SRPGs naturally specialize in battle mechanics.
