The Netherworld a place where might makes right and today's friends are tomorrow's enemies. After a long journey with many ups and downs, Laharl finally finds himself as a full fledged Overlord. However, the other denizens of the Netherworld do not see him as such, so he sets out on a journey with his loyal(..) vassals to receive the respect he deserves. Along the way, Laharl will meet a girl who claims to be his sister, demons with bigger than usual chips on their shoulders, and find out that even his own body holds a few surprises for him.

Simply put, the game mechanics are deeper, the combat effects graphics are better, and the jokes are still funny (though I thought Etna's episode ending pseudo TV clips were funnier in the original Disgaea, one of the only downsides and it was very minor). In fact, this game has the funniest single episode in any game I have ever played.
If you are a fan of old school RPG's, or any of the previous Disgaea games, or irreverent humor combined with near endless replayability... then this is definitely the game for you.
I bought Disgaea and Disgaea 2 right out the gate and have over 300 hours into each of the, I very much enjoy those games. But I went Xbox 360 instead of PS3 and didn't get back to the series until 2 years ago. I plowed through Disgaea 3 and 4. The constant addition of new modes that aren't worth the time, brought the series down.
Until now. The return to the roots, though with a few new shoots and stems, was a welcome change. The game is still over burdened with extra features, but the core of the game is strong. It took me a while to get into it, but found the journey well worth the price.
(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. Game balance issue, makes going through item world a bit slower as well, but more enjoyable.
~Pirates either show up before your turn 1 or not at all. Don't have to spend 2 turns waiting to see if they arrive if you're hunting for pirate ships, you know from the start. This REALLY saves a lot of time.
~Character specializations: Each character type gets 3 specializations. Like one of the healers has the Evility choices of "When you heal others, you heal yourself", OR "Heal for an extra 20%" OR "Regain 5% of SP at end of turn" (those aren't all on the same guy but you get the idea). Makes for some extra customization.
Ultimately this is my favorite game out there, and other than playing on the 3DS while at work, this has completely trumped all my other PS3 games (including FIFA and GTA5) and I'm playing nothing else while at home than this. And 18 hours in, my guys are only in the 50s.
This latest version of disgaea is all that I could've hoped for and much more. I just started playing it and now I'm hooked in the new story/adventure. ^_^
