Most rpg games that I have played always have had a serious tone to them. This is understandable since most rpg games, especially those of the fantasy genre, involved defeating a Dark Lord of some sort and saving the world from destruction. This is not the case with ATLUS' Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. Disgaea is one of the funniest and most irreverent game I have ever played.

For starters, the main character in the game is a teenage demon by the name of Laharl whose sidekick Edna is a young demoness who seems to be constantly ridiculing Laharl and maybe even plotting behind his back. Laharl is clueless and behaves the way he thinks demon lords should behave, Edna and the rest of his courtiers barely give him his due respect and yet they still follow him for some reason. Weird and unusual cast of characters for an rpg.

With Disgaea being an rpg in the same vein as Final Fantasy Tactics and Ogre Battle Tactics, there will be an inordinate amount of jobs you as a player can recruit to join your team. Jobs that can be recruited from can range from stereotypical fantasy fare like wizard, mage, cleric to more out there jobs like being a gunslinger of some type. There is even a a unit character one can recruit that is nothing but demonic servants in the shape of penguins that are called Prinnies and who always say "dood!'.

The levelling system in Disgaea is very extensive. If one had the time and inclination to do so, they can level up every character in their team into the 10000+ level. The same goes for the levels of their items. The good thing about Disgaea is that there are certain levels --- I will leave it up to the new players to figure out which --- that helps immensely in powerleveling a team member in the tens of thousands.

This is the best strategy RPG game I remember since FF Tactics.
The gameplay is pretty much standard fare for strategy games. There is a bit of a kink thrown in as all of your characters move first and then all the enemy characters move etc. which allows you more agression but also forces you to be careful as all the enemies will be rushing back at you.
The Geo Panel system is simply wonderful and can make an otherwise easy battle very difficult with various area effects that can include damaging your characters or creating evil clones of them that come after you! Attempting to destroy all the Geo Panels then becomes a sub goal in each level which helps to keep the variety fresh.
Innovation is abound in this title, the most notable being the Item World. This is basically your "random battle" area. You are transported within an item of your chosing where you fight through different levels. You pass one level and you progress to the next etc. Every ten levels you can leave and when you do leave the item levels up based on how far down you went. So it's not just random battles and levelling up, it's also improving your items on the side.
Also added in to Disgaea is a Dark Assembly - basically a Senate in which you pitch ideas such as Improved Countrattack, More Expensive Items in Shops, Raising Military Funds. Each senator can be bribed if necessary allowing you to use your extra items to get some of the sweet bonuses offered via the Assembly.
You also have character creation which is a solid addition. You can create just about anything you kill, bosses excepted. You create them using mana (obtained by killing enemies) and based on how much mana you want to spend are able to raise their base stats.

I was in complete awe of this game. Nothing beats a good old fashion RPG that makes you laugh your pants off at the same time. I really can tell you right now, you will die laughing because this games dialouuge is stupidly hilarious. Lets begin.
Story- Finally, an original strategy RPG story that doesn't suck! Do you save the world? No. Do you find true love? No. Do you try and claim your rightful place in the Netherworld as king after you slept for 2 years? Yes. You, Laharl, wake up to find you father dead. In confusion, you seek out the demons that don't deserve to become king and beat them up. Whats better than that? Add the fact that the games dialouge is funny, and has voice acting and you have something special. But seriously, the story is very well done, while at the same time stupid
Characters- The colorful cast of characters for D:HOD are great. Most of them are demon people from the Netherworld, while others are from Celestia, heaven. Each character is great, and their personalities change very fast in this game. Not much more to say but they are great and funny, even the NPC's. My favorite characters are the Pengies, little penguins that hen they attack, they go "DOOOOOOOOOOD!" Its great.
Graphics- Despite other reviews, I found the graphics to be very pleasant. Yes they seem to PS1 graphics, little 2d sprites, but once you start playing the game, it truly feels like the good old days. You can trust me that the graphics are beautiful, full of color and depth. The battle field and other walking areas are in full 3d, and are very detailed as well, each carrying many seperate details, whether it is a small weapon, or noticable specks of dirt. Great graphics, just not something this game truly shines in.
