Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness
This is one of the best games I have ever played. It's vary funny, vary long, and has tons of verity. I spent over 80 hours on my first play through alone and still love it. It's also really easy to pick up and play for a few minutes and then set back down, or you can play it for hours on end, and forget to eat (I've done that before). And even after playing for what is now over 100 hours I have barely even begun to find all the hidden jems within it. So if your looking for a fun, funny, and rather entertaining game you can really sink your teeth into, then this is the game for you. I would also like to say that this game is good for both casual and hardcore gamers. You can just play it cause it's something to do, or you can spend hundreds of hours doing everything there is to do in the game.
I first tried out this game on the psp which has a few differences from the ps2 game. The difference is that on the psp there is an Etna mode that you can unlock. Also, there is no button to find the dimensional gate like there is for the psp. So you have to find it on your own, but it isn't usually hard to find. Last but not least is the names of the role-players that you can unlock. I was amazed at the graphics and the storyline was definitely entertaining and motivating. You get o make your own monsters and humans that you unlock. Name them what you want and strap them with the weapons you choose. It can literally entertain you for more than 200 hours, thats because there's no end. Wanna find out what I'm talking about then don't hesitate to go out and purchase this revolutionary game. This RPG involves an evil prince that determines to be overlord since his dad died. You play the evil prince... Exciting and great if you've always wanted to play the bad guy. I recommend it to any RPG fan... it's a great addition to your collection.
One of my favorite games of all time!
This is a great surprise and just in time because i just purchased the Daxter Bundle P.S.P. and was wondering what my first game purchase would be. Disgaea is still one of my favorite P.S. II games. If the P.S.P. version is half as good, this will be a great game for some time to come. Multiplayer? Sweet! I've already ordered both the guide and the game...
Reason I bought a PSP
The idea of this, one of my favourite games, being portable... well, it was the reason I recently purchased a PSP. As some have noted, this is purely a remake of the original PS2 classic. Some new features include Etna mode, where you play with Etna as your main character, some extra characters from other Nippon Ichi titles and a multiplayer. Even if it didn't have any special features over the original i'd still buy this in a heart beat.
Great Chance to Get Disgaea again!
For those who have missed their chance of buying the very first Disgaea for PS2, and you have PSP handheld right now... this is the right time for you to get the game! The first one explains it all!
A common misconception...
Many people believe that this will be a new game, which it really isn't. In truth, this is the same PS2 Disgaea game (Hour of Darkness) with much more features added on, like the Etna what-if story, multiplayer battles and more secret bosses. In a sense, this is Disgaea 1++ (I've imported the Japanese version, the US version will have more extras supposedly) A must buy for anybody who has played and enjoyed the original.
awsome in the palm of your hand
I am a hardcore Disgaea fan. I have all the animes and mangas and I just can't wait for this game. The only good srpg on the psp is the new jean darc game which is pretty good and now this game is coming out and it will hopefully be as good as the others in this series.
I just heard this game was coming out for the PSP. I played the first Disgaea for the PS2 and had a great time with it. It's fun, funny and challenging. If this same formula is used for this Disgaea, it's a must buy for any PSP owner and/or RPG-tactic fan. I don't know is it's a port from the PS2 version, but I did play Disgaea Portable for the PSP and it was the very same game available for the PS2, except that it was in Japanese and I couldn't understand anything I was reading and this was way back in July when I got to play it. If this is the PS2 port, they sure have taken their sweet time passing it on to the PSP. Come on guys, the game's already translated. Do the port already. In conclusion, get this game. Disgaea does not disappoint. .
you have to get this gonna be rpg classic
It's about time a rpg of this caliber is coming out for the psp this is of those games that you can play for over 100 hours and still have things to do, this game will be my shining psp game than any other because this game is funny easy and very very hard at the same time and it has great characters (such as etna) and very very deep game play(you can be level 1000 and over and it's not easy) if you psp needs a rpg this is the one
BLUE! YELLOW! TRANSFORM!
Disgaea is a SRPG gamers best asset, with easily over 100 hours of gameplay (Especially for those hell bent on completion) With a level barrier of 9999 you are bound to spend hours and hours into this game, There is mention of a second game mode where you play through another story, and there is now AD-Hoc usage when you want to battle a friend, and to make things fair (with all fairness) there is now a way to balance the playing field.
