What can I say?

I was always the kind of player that would go through finding some stuff and was always a little scared by massive customization, but Disgaea flipped my switch. I found myself at times, just to get some fun money and new classes, making entirely new battle-groups of people and slugging it through previous levels with my new group, just because of the huge difference there is between it and your probable starters. It's when you make more and more classes that your see just how dynamic and strategy-heavy the games can get when you're in a pinch. I'll admit the graphics were sub-par, but I felt right at home with sprites that reminded me of the old Final Fantasies. The voice acting is great and the story is fun and well played. This is a game that when you ship it back, you'll find yourself thinking about it, then adding it back onto your game q if you haven't bought it already. I am still trying to get my paws on it, myself.

I seriously love this game. I recently just started playing it, but let me tell you, if you are looking for a game that will take up a lot of your time or one that you can play for a while. This is the game to get. Seriously. If you don't like SRPGs then you might not like this game, but if you do, you will feel like you are in heaven.

Namely because this game will suck your life away. To further accentuate my point Ive been looking for this game for almost 2 YEARS before i found a copy at a little out of the way EB games. This is after scouring 3 cities (omaha, Council Bluffs, Kansas City) Quite simply this game is almost impossible to find ANYWhere

Its that addicting, the graphics are subpar but you barely even notice them.

The Gameplay is this game's shining gem. EVERYTHING is upgradable from you weapons and armor to character classes to even the skills you get. In the battles movement and attack are really intuitive and strategy is a must. the attacks are very flashy and you can feel how your stats effect gameplay.

The Other major point is the story quite literaly when you by this game your getting not just a game but a whole season (13 episodes) of quite possibly one of the funniest and most off beat animes ever concieved. The interaction between the 3 main characters Etna, flonne and Laharl would by itself be a worthy watch, but throw in characters like the affectionatly named Mid-Boss and it quickly gets outof hand(in a good way).

After almost 100 hours of play im taking a break now mainly because i put up those 100 hours in less than a month. Ive played WoW and Evercrack and neither sucked me in like this. Its simply phenominal. to tell the truth ive got the second one reserved already. to make sure i get it.
