Nippon Ichi's famed cult classic, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness was originally released on the Playstation 2 in 2003. It began as an underground title that eventually became a greatest hits on the console. Nippon Ichi is trying to get it to a huge audience apparently. Within the past five years this is already the thrid release of the game (in which the PSP version came out just last year). This bring about the obvious question: Is Disgaea worth getting if you've got one of the two previous versions?

For those who never played the original (or PSP version, for that matter), 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 story is told through still shots of the characters facing one another and talking.

Disgaea became popular largely because of the game's different approach to the SRPG genre. On the surface its pretty basic. You send your characters around on a grid style map and they attack the enemies and you win usually when all the enemies on the map are defeated. Some battles require different approaches.

There are a couple of things about Disgaea's system that separate it from other strategy RPGs.

Disgaea, a little sleeper PS2 hit Turn-Based RPG game, finally came out for Nintendo DS.

Since the storyline / game play are already covered by other reviewers, so I will go straight to the condensed version of why you should consider buying this game:

* Gameplay Style Difference from PS2 / PSP Version:

The most striking difference is the fact game takes advantage of the dual screen of Nintendo DS.

During the battle, upper screen functions as a "minimap" -- which is very useful in some of the bigger maps by letting you see how the map is laid out as whole. This is not available in other versions.

Another bonus is, the function to move characters during the battle have become much easier by being able to directly tap the place with your DS Stylus instead of manually pointing there using your directional pad on your DS (this might take a while to get used to if you are new to the genre or to this type of a game).

* What Else is Different?:

Disgaea DS is largely a port from the PSP version of the same game. This means, the extra features seen from the PSP version (that are not in the original PS2 version) -- including Etna Mode where Etna (one of the characters players control in the game) becomes the lead character instead of Laharl (lead character by default) -- exists in this version as well.

However, due to the lower capacity of DS, graphics details are lesser than what you would see on the PSP version, and voice acting is limited to English and not too many of them exist compared to PSP version of the game (PSP version features both English and Japanese voice-overs, as did PS2).

My experience with strategy RPGs began with Final Fantasy Tactics, and I was happy with it. Then I move onto the Advanced Wars series, again, I was happy with it.

I'd heard about the Disgaea series on some gaming websites and dismissed it as a super hardcore anime-inspired game that eschewed fun in favor of punishing difficulty.

But then I took a chance on Disgaea DS after seeing some reviews. I thought that the worst that could happen would be that I was out $5 and at least I would learn to steer away from the series.

...well, what happened was that 2 days later I plunked down the extra $25 to buy the game and have since sunk at least 30 hours into the game.

I even sold my copies of Final Fantasy Tactics A2 and Advanced Wars Days of Ruin, because I knew that I would only be playing one SRPG series from now on.

Disgaea DS is, quite simply, the best strategy game I have ever played. The options it gives you on the battlefield are immense. You can rush your enemies with straight brute force and power through the game, or you can sit back, build up your combo meter and gather up some really awesome items.

The Item World portion of the game is absolutely genius. Although optional, it is almost like a full-fledged puzzle game set inside Disgaea's world. Sure, you can play the Item World portions just like the regular battles, but stringing together multi-hundred hit combos with Geo Squares is where the real fun is, and how you snatch up the best items in the game. It also tacks on a near infinite number of hours onto the game as there are hundreds of items, each with a 100-level dungeon inside them. Yes, you can level up anything from the mightiest swords down to a piece of chewed gum...and it's great fun the whole way.
