User Rating: 10 | Makai Senki Disgaea PS2
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 giving a 10 is a very big thing. I truly love this game. With over 225 hours logged, I just beat it completely. The story is about 20 hours, with about 100-200 hours of extra maps, and potentially infinite gameplay. The story is very good and deep. I'm an extreme fan of tactics RPGs, they're my favorite type of game, and I own every one that has been released for PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, and (their most prevalent system) Gameboy. And this one is by far the best, only rivaled by Tactics Ogre: Knight of Lodis. You can just play this game for ever, and almost never get bored. If you do get bored, and stop playing, you can easily come back and become immersed in its glory once again. I once stopped playing it for a year and a half, and then picked it up again and started playing again, as if I had never stopped. The fact that you can play it for 3 years, and still have more to do is amazing. The item worlds introduce infinite possibilities. The musical score is excellent, the voice acting is also very good. Sprites again, meaning there's nothing to be wrong there. Unlike Nippon Ichi's further ventures, this one stays with good old squares. The circles are an interesting idea, and work just fine, but you shouldn't mess with an original. This game impacted my life, now go let it impact yours.
