Well, if you've played the previous games and didn't like them, you won't like this one. However, if you are a fan of the series, well, let's just say you are in for a treat.
For a start, there's half a dozen more things for you to get 100% completion in. Pirate ships, capturing innocents, and bugging other people are just a few.
As for the graphics... excellent. Seriously, when I saw the graphics I just thought how pretty they were. The previous games were okay but this game is just so nice to look at.
All of the previous jobs and monsters have returned, along with Magichange. Now, however, you can fuse monsters into bigger versions. In addition, Magichange has been upgraded to feel, well, worth it. You don't lose a spot after the character disappears, for one.
The humor has returned full force in this game. I actually found myself laughing out loud, an action that, unfortunately, did not occur during the previous game. The characters are nicely varied as well.
Evilities have returned but now every monster and job get unique evilities, not just the main characters. As you increase in level, more evilities are unlocked. For example, the warrior gains an evilitiy that boosts his attack when using a sword by 30% of his current SP.
It's safe to say that there is a lot to keep you occupied. So let's reach 40 million hours of playtime, everyone. Remember, sardines are your friends and with them, you will become all powerful!

I've played the series from the first title to this current one, playing the ports of the first two on the psp as well. Every new installment involves new characters and tends to refer to older ones in the post game (or in part of the main plot)
The classes are more balanced to use, so you won't be losing out if you don't like a specific class of character, and all the advancements from the first one add to the storyline, this time around they've added double weapons, giant weapons, and giant monster fusion to name a few.
storyline wise it keeps with the disgaea tradition of a new main character, and interactions from the original cast.
the only thing that keeps it from being 'perfect' is that I would have loved to see a direct vs mode like the psp port of disgaea 1 used.
i honestly have no idea when i am going to return this game in, i honestly think im going to keep this game as long as possible, this game just never ends, even when you think your done they trick you ha which is no surprise, because with this series you need to expect the unexpected haha
