    *Shudder*

    Rated on July 13, 2006 by InfernoPirate

    This game makes me shudder. If you know me, or have read any of my reviews, I don't give out 10s easily. Well, I guess it might seem like that, since I usually only rate games I really like, or ones...

    Disgaea is a Great Tactical RPG with belly-rumbling humor and an aesthetically appealing visual style. Just like the first reviewer I've played some FFT but didn't bother finishing the game. For one t...

    D:HOD is a really good strategy game and is on par with the worshiped Final Fantasy Tactics. Theres not much to complain about Disgaea. The graphics and overblown special effects really mix well togat...

    Quirky is Beautiful

    Rated on July 19, 2006 by subrosian

    Disgaea is a niche game - this should be said from the start. If you don't know who Flash Gordon, Sailor Moon, and a host of other manga characters are, some of the humor will be lost. That aside,...

    Disgaea is a game that we've all been waiting to happen. With the release of Tactics Ogre: The Knights of Lodis, a little bit of life was breathed back into a genre that was considered all but dead--...

    First i have to say that this score is for tactic rpg fans, not for action and fps gamers that dont like a bit of strategy. Starting from the storyline, it is fun and gets you laughing in every cutce...

    Disgaea is a break from the normal "save the princess/world" story found in most RPGs. In it you play as the young, sassy prince Laharl, the heir to the throne of the underworld. His father having die...
