Perfect

Best strategy game until Disgaea 2.

I was never a big fan of strategy rpg's until I played Final Fantasy Tactics. After thatI became addicted. When I went to my local game store to look for a good strategy game this one stood out. I have been a Disgaea fanatic ever since. This is one of my favorite games and every fan of rpgs should try it. Firstly every rpg fan loves to level up their characters. This game allows for characters up to level 9999!!! That is insane! Potentially this game could last forever, with all of the items, the lengthy story, and of course the character development this game will never bore you.

I'll wind up buying this. There is enough complexity and options to keep the game interesting.

When I just need to unwind for an hour or so I can run through an item world. When I want to advance the story, I can do that. When I've got plenty of time, I can look to see what new classes I've unlocked, and try familiar challenges with new characters. I haven't even begun to deal with the potential generated by lifting and throwing characters & objects into each other.

There are things I wish The graphics are crude, if not ugly. I wound up doing tremendous damage with friendly fire because I couldn't target accurately. The story is rather wan and predictable; I should have liked stronger characters.
