Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten (PlayStation 3)

 

The Disgaea series has always fused wickedly humorous storylines featuring ostensibly evil heroes with deeply strategic and rewarding battles. The good and bad news about Disgaea 4 is that very little has changed. A smart and funny tale invigorates...

More sardine factoids than you can shake a sword at.

Dozens of hours worth of content and beyond; Creative setting, style, and humor; More time and thought = Better results

Writing can drag on and get irritating; Interface and mechanics can be vague; Presentation will be lackluster to those not used to this style

Perhaps the most obvious change that fans of the series will notice is the visual upgrade. Disgaea's character sprites no longer look like they belong on the PSX. They're now at least PlayStation 2 quality. It sounds like a joke, but the visual quality...

Politics and mythical creatures are unorthodox ingredients that make an old formula taste brand new.

The absorbing tactical battles haven't evolved much, but a great cast of characters and consistently funny writing keep Disgaea 4 entertaining.

Humorous tale filled with memorable characters ; Involving tactical battles ; Cute artistic style ; Plenty of strategic considerations outside of battle

Very similar to earlier entries in the series ; Insufficient tutorials

All is for my lord.

New online features, pirate ship and map editing, refined game system that is above and beyond previous games in the series

Level editing nerfed in the Western versions of the game, no real control over all your online activities

Still the most insane turn-based strategy game around.

Disgaea 4 plays it safe and sticks with the same winning formula it has used for almost a decade. If more Disgaea sounds like a good time to you, dig in. That also means it will still be too daunting and arduous for many people. This is a game for...

Review: Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten for PS3

 

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten is the latest and greatest in the legendary Disgaea series of strategic RPGs. It's got all new, HD graphics, a brand new Netherworld and overlord to meet and even more opportunities to create the biggest and baddest...

Interesting story, lots of opportunities to level grind, colorful characters, old and new character sprite styles, can place special buildings in the command center to influence characters, can visit an Evility shop to learn skills and abilities, can...

A true online multiplayer mode would have been appreciated and pirate duels take a while and bit of effort to unlock

The Netherworld can be a rather daunting place. Demons run amok, humans are forced into hard labor to make up for their sins, and the government is sometimes run by child figureheads.

Deep RPG elements ; Funny dialog and great voice acting ; Fun game play ; Wonderful presentation ; Amazing tutorial

There could be too much to do in the game

The Netherworld can be a rather daunting place. Demons run amok, humans are forced into hard labor to make up for their sins, and the government is sometimes run by child figureheads. Well, at least that’s what it’s like in the Disgaea Netherworld. Get...
