    *Shudder*

    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 I really hate, but ... Read Full Review

    I always have been a lover of Strategic Role Playing Games, since my first experience with Shinning Force back in early 90s... the evolution of it were amazing when we take the front line now as Disgaea series. Disgaea ... Read Full Review

    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 the color palette in ... Read Full Review

    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 togather and creates a vi... Read Full Review

    Quirky is Beautiful

    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, it's a beautiful ga... Read Full Review

    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--strategy RPGs. Afte... Read Full Review

    Sure to be a cult hit-- Disgaea gives strategy gaming a serious kick in the ass.

    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 died and himself sleepi... Read Full Review
