Disgaea DS


So much content, such a tiny cartridge. The Disgaea series has slowly become one of the most beloved franchises that most gamers have never heard of. This quirky turn-based strategy...

Tons of content on one small cartridge ; Quirky and entertaining story ; Takes good advantage of the hardware

Graphics take a small hit ; Could still be overwhelming to some

Nintendo DS: Disgaea DS Review


One of the most in-depth tactical role-playing games makes it to the DS. Make sure that you check out everything you need to know about the first in the Disgaea series for the Nintendo DS to determine if this is the right RPG for your portable gaming.

Disgaea DS


Disgaea for Nintendo DS is a title that I am torn about liking. On one hand it has all the stuff about the game I enjoy, strategic action, likable characters, and a solid story. But in the transition to the smaller storage media that the DS offers it...

Disgaea on DS is still a solid adventure and it works great in a portable medium, but again the limited DS cart size has caused the game to lose some of its audio and graphical fidelity in exchange for touch sensitive controls which are for the most...

Disgaea DS Review


Disgaea DS is basically a repeat of past glory but for DS owners unfamiliar with the series -- now's your chance.

One of the best RPG experiences of the previous generation of gaming is available to an entirely new audience

There's little reason for fans to re-purchase the title a third time, especially since Prinny Commentary requires a completed game to unlock

Disgaea DS throws the title onto a new platform, but it loses none of what made it so excellent in the first place. The gameplay is still deep and addicting, the story and subsequent writing are still fantastic, and the characters are some of the most...

Disgaea DS


Almost a year ago, I got my introduction to Disgaea by way of the PSP port (Afternoon of Darkness) of the first game in the series (Hour of Darkness), and I promptly fell in love with its quirky brand of gameplay. With a new entry in the series out on...

As I said in my PSP review, there are always two questions asked when discussing a game that's a port: should you buy it again if you have played it before, and should you play it now if you didn't before? If you played Disgaea on the PSP, I really...

Disgaea DS


The Disgaea series is known for having the best options in the strategy role playing game genre. Gameplay can last for hours and the stories tend to be on the humorous side. Since Nintendo DS fans never got to experience the first game it is now being...

Disgaea DS is the latest reissue of the original Disgaea game. By utilizing the Nintendo DS Disgaea is fitting right at home on this double screen portable console. The game is still terrific after all these years. Strategy RPG fans should pick this...

Disgaea DS


My favourite game of 2004 was Disgaea: Hour of Darkness for the PlayStation 2. The game was my first taste of Nippon Ichi's wonderful blend of excellent tactical RPG game-play and their distinctive brand of humour. It's a game I've returned to many...

If you haven't yet experienced the wacky first-class strategy RPG experience that is Disgaea and you own a DS, then Disgaea DS is simply a must own game. Of course if you've already experienced the PlayStation 2 version then a purchase may be a little...

Disgaea DS


Disgaea is one of my favorite recent video game series, and it's been on a roll lately with the solid PS3 iteration, Absence of Justice, and now the DS installment. It's a remake of the original Disgaea, first subtitled Hour of Darkness. While Disgaea...

Disgaea DS


Disgaea DS is a port of Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness for the PlayStation Portable which is, in turn, a port of the original Disgaea outing, Hour of Darkness, for the PlayStation 2. The franchise has also spawned two sequels for the PS2 and PS3,...

The amount of content included in Disgaea DS is staggering. Not only are the game's core mechanics solid, innovative, and insanely addictive, but there's enough post-game content to consume hundreds of hours of your life if you so desire. New Game+ is...

Disgaea DS


Visually, Disgaea's always been a bit backwards. It looked basic in 2003, with its bright colours and myriad of spunky character designs failing to make up for the low-res sprites and rudimentary 3D environments. It's the very epoch of gameplay over...
