Disgaea Afternoon of Darkness is truly one of the amazing games I have played and became one of my top games of all time. When I first saw this on the PS2 (btw for those who don't know this is a port of the original PS2 version) I was curious to see what it was seeing all the characters and how they dressed... anyways this game was amazing the story is flawless, the gameplay is fun, the soundtrack is awesome, and there is so much to do in this game it's unbelievable the only thing about this game it's too damn hard (at least it was to me) but other than that it's great. Games like this make me think alot about life and death but that's what I like about it. The story takes place in a place called the netherworld (which is hell) and at this time the king has died and his son (the prince) has to take place but in order to do that he has to prove his worthy to be king. The prince (which his name is Laharl) was asleep when his father died and woke up to his vassal named Etna... two years later and now has to be trained under her. But even he proves his worth, other demons can take the throne by killing Laharl, so now he has to work his way up to the top and become overlord, but at what cost? The gameplay there is so much to do in this game like building up an army for your party (trust me it's harder than it sounds) but there is so much classes to create and not just the ones they give you, you can find even more classes by doing specific requirements in the game, also leveling up your weapons and armor, in this game you can go to a world called the item world (yeah not a good name) in this world you can level your weapons and armor so they can be more powerful than there original state, there are 100 floors for each given weapon, but if you reach the top... actually I'll let you see for yourself if you can make it. You can also go to an assembly to get new stuff for your game like more moves, counters, or new places to go to. The soundtrack is amazing I loved hearing the music in the game you can buy the music to use in the item world but its too damn expensive. The voice acting is really good in my opinion, it's good at times but then it gets all weird and funny but it's still good. This game is recommended for rpg gamers and story gamers it is well worth it.
All I can say is it's about time developers realized that the true strength of the handheld lies in the tactical RPG. As most know, two highly-celebrated classics were recently released for PSP, Final Fantasy Tactics: ... Read Full Review
