Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness


Strategy RPG fans rejoice! NIS' fantastic PS2 classic Disgaea: Hour of Darkness has made it's way onto the PSP, with a new subtitle (Afternoon of Darkness) and a new second...

Incredible Depth ; Great sense of humor ; More content than PS2 original

Steep difficulty may turn off non-hardcore fans ; Limited camera control

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness (PSP)


After spending its entire existence mainly as a delivery device for arcade racers and bad UMD movies, the PSP has suddenly found itself as the go-to console for RPG fans. The past couple of months have brought us Tales of the World, Brave Story, and...

This review was based on a retail version of Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness that was purchased by the reviewer with money that he earned by doing numerous turn-based dungeon-clearing quests.

Disgaea Afternoon of Darkness


Fans of the niche-genre of tactics-style RPGs usually have a short list of favorites. Typically, at the top of this list is either Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Ogre, depending on which game they discovered first. Both games were developed by Quest,...

A few new boss battles have been added ; A completely new story mode extends replay appeal for vets of the title ; Plan to spend 100s of hours playing this one

All of the original Etna’s voice acting has been redone to match Michelle Ruff’s work in the anime and Disgaea 2 ; Two Atlus-owned songs, present in the PS2 version, are MIA for this NIS America-published PSP port

It’s the same game you loved on PS2, times two! Even vets of the original will want to pick this one up to play through with Etna in charge!

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness Rev..


NIS America's PSP rework of the 2003 PS2 hit is pure roleplaying game gold!

The truth is that Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness is a great game that really deserves some credit for further elevating the PSP as a serious platform for gaming in the eyes of role-playing game fans. Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness stands side by side...

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness


You've probably never woken up to a day quite as bad as Laharl has. Not only does he catch his "loyal" vassal Etna using a variety of guns to try to wake him up, but he learns that he's been asleep for two years! If that's not bad enough, he also finds...

Disgaea Afternoon of Darkness


When older games get ported to a newer system, it can sometimes be a drag for both players and the market. For a time, it looked as though the PSP would be drowned in hasty ports. Thankfully, for all the ports that the system has received, Disgaea:...

In short, Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness does almost nothing but improve upon the original PS2 incarnation. The added options for Item World music and toggling skill animations address two of the most common complaints about the original game’s...

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness


Think "weird, anime-minded strategy game" and you're probably thinking about Nippon Ichi Software. Or, you're drawing a total blank and wondering if you should even bother reading anymore. Hint: you should. Disgaea: Hour of Darkness for PSP is an...

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, originally a critically-hailed PlayStation2 title released back in 2003, comes now to the PlayStation Portable (PSP) with all the original goodness intact, plus some added features that make this new handheld incarnation...

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness


Another top-tier strategy RPG arrives on the PSP.

Astonishing depth; multiplayer; excellent humor; excellent core gameplay; fun new mode

Camera-inflicted pain; ad hoc-only multiplayer
