This is my impressions as a returning Disgaea Player. Having played 1 - 4 multiple times each, and done hundreds of hours of grinding and the like.
First I'll start with the characters. Laharal, Flonne, and Etna once again take center stage and to be honest? It doesn't matter to me. I have never been a big fan of the original cast personally, And Flonne's English VA Makes me quiver with rage. On top of that Laharal's VAing seems... almost rushed/sub par. Everyone else is fine... at least so far.
The Story is simple, as all of them are, and doesn't get in the way. But only being in Chapter 3 I can't really say much more about it as it's just starting. The Dialog so far has been the traditional Disgaea madness. Sillyness abound and strange sentences everywhere! It's been mostly entertaining thus far so I have no real complaints about it yet.
Now, onto the meat and potatoes of Disgaea... the gameplay. The first few battles are a tutorial to learn the basics of the game if you are new. If not, you can skip the Tutorial aspect and just start fighting. Immediately I noticed some amazing changes.
1. The Movement panels are much easier to see, it's a simple but nice improvement
2. Throwing.... OOOH throwing is more awesome now. you can throw all around you instead of in a straight line. Those that haven't played the game before have NO FREAKING idea how useful that is.
3. The Sounds, Animations, Even the Font have all been altered and I love it all. Battle feels more... well just more.Read more ›
(Note: This review is written while on chapter 4 after about 18 hours of play mostly in item world and having not finished the entire game yet, so no spoilers capable and more so just some general mechanics commentary)
~Item rarity levels removed. Just streamlined down to Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Legendary (might be another in there). No longer will I be upset I have a level 3 legendary sword and need to find a level 1 or 0 one. That honestly saves a ridiculous number of hours of item world diving
~Item world ships required. Starts you off with one that goes down to level 10 and you quickly get one to go down to level 30. You're very likely to encounter a smaller ship from the cat pirates that also takes you just as deep as level 10. Means you have more searching to do than just immediately farming the basement of item world.
~Character promotions. Now you can have your rank 1 version of a toon just be promoted to the higher rank version of him/herself. Makes life easier at the lower levels of trying to maximize your character stats, instead of having to wait to power level them significantly later in the game.
~"More expensive stuff" rationed by chapter level. So you'll have to find your awesome "You shouldn't have this on your first playthrough" stuff in item world, instead of just diving for a few hours, passing the "more expensive stuff" all the way through, and using your item world money to buy the highest tier items.Read more ›
On the outside this game would just seem to be another disgaea game. Being the only sequel to the series the game does not disappoint with a simplification and expansion of options in the game. I wont go into too much detail as Jack Fox, Badgerlord was kind enough to go into great detail explaining certain facets of the game.
Being a disgaea game the characters are generally over the top funny, vicious and petty. I have to say that they don't dissapoint and outside Leharls voice seeming a bit more fast paced then before the characters have their normal personality. I was surprised at how well a sequel 10 years later could keep the same thought process and story writing. They did a great job here.
Much of the game mechanics have been overhauled and simplified to allow new and old players to enjoy the game while not trying to figure out "This Disgaea's new mechanic for X". They took a good bit from the first game and simplified things like items, character creation, grinding and combat mechanics like "Team Attakc, Lift and Throw, Mounting".The Master and Apprentice system is simplified and frankly should be used constantly.
Base of operations:
More of the castle is accessible, with fun little activities, like double jump, finding the cheat shop, and Etna's not so secrete chamber. overall the fact they added treasure per episode and a cheat shop make exploring worthwhile. Overall they release access to things like Item World, Demon Dojo and the Demon Assembly in a nice way with explanations to allow you to not neglect certain important aspects of the game.Read more ›
