All I can say is WOW! I have been playing the wrong type of RPGs this whole time! I thought RPGs like Skyrim and Oblivion were the most satisfying. Don't get me wrong, they are great games, but lets face it; there's no learning curve, no strategy, in my opinion. Basic turn based RPGs are fun aswell, but seem to be very repetitive. This is my first Disgaea game and I am very impressed by it. The gameplay is amazing, after you win a battle you feel like you have accomplished something. I have never played or even thought about playing a grid-based or SRPG after I watched my friend play FF: tactics. He absolutely hated it. I have a feeling that I may like it now that I have a new found resepect for this particular type of RPG. I have already put over 17 hours in, playing it 12 hours straight when I purchased it. All-in-all this is a very good game; easily a 9.5/10.
