Fair

tactical combat system x army of characters = slow

The characterization of the characters that you can play is fun, but the combat system is really really slow and detailed, and you have to do actions again and again and again for each different character.

You have to really really love tactical multi-character games to be able to get through the combat system.

Perfect

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.

he likes the anime series as well. The gameplay and story is entertaining for him while there's no turn limit like Jean D Arc. The graphic is 2D, however.. I'll rent the PSP version for him to play.. it's much easy.. and it will free up our tv in the living room.. Who knows how long he's going to sit in from of the TV to play this game! :)
