    Built on the previous games, but some annoyances here and there muddied the game for me.

    To start with, i've not finished Disgaea 4, i've played through story mode 3 times, and a player of the series will know that the story mode isn't even the beginning of these games. For a none player ...

    From a newcomer perspective, this game is very inviting for those who had never played a game of the series.

    Disgaea is a game that you put endless amount of hours into and still not make it to a level high enough to defeat all the hidden bosses and see everything the game has to offer. I personally have pl...

    One of my favorite series has not let us down. A significant improvement to the series.

    Disgaea 4 game play is unchanged from the previous entry but new additions and the story make the game a lot more fun. One of the major improvements is that the extra classes like male and female arc...

    The king of SRPGs returns, dood!

    Rated on September 14, 2011 by svaubel

    The Disgaea games have always been a part of a rather niche kind of genre; the strategy RPG, you know the ones that once in a blue moon you happen to see one at a used game store. A Promise Unforgotte...

    The Disgaea series fans are very loyal. Many people cant understand why we like it, but this is the best of the best of all RTS around. The formula is the same old: you go through the main story, l...

    A good game with a quirky nature! A bit to complicated to drag in more than the hardcore strategy gamer.

    I have never played a Disgaea game and was never really watching for it. I saw an ad for it a while back and decided I needed to give it a try. I went to a couple game rental places and they said it's...

    Does Disgaea 4 deliver and maintain the tradition of the series? Read on!

    Rated on November 18, 2011 by TristanH12

    Disgaea 4 essentially ditches all ties to the previous entries and presents players with a fresh new story. Like Disgaea 3, Disgaea 4 is a great entry place for new and continuing players alike. There...
