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!

What else could it be other than Disgaea..
NOW haters don't hate me... for scoring it a 7 out of 10... I AWAYS give some what lower scores than other reviewers, because it is only that, I have such a High standard for the games I play... That said 7 in MY book maybe a 10 in others.... As a reviewer I tend to look at things such as player options, player freedom, balance, variety, and blend...ect. Although I admit it has all of these, they don't seem ground breakingly orgasmic.... The stories are almost never serious though...Which can actually be a good thing.... The Strategy combat still rocks... And you have Plenty of troops to choose from, but some will need unlocking first, though... I won't offer any spoilers... But still... You should try it yourself before you buy it, and see if it is for you... I get a little sick of all the people who always say that a game has to have a strong story to be any good, Disgaea series proves that WRONG on every count... Just remember to have fun...
