Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten
2 September 2013
Summary: Despite my lovely knack for sinking my teeth into 100-hour-long JRPGs when I find myself wanting some time to game, the Disgaea series is one that managed to intimidate me, largely after hearing firsthand accounts from fans who have managed to literally put thousands of hours into the games.
Excerpt: It's back, dood! The SRPG that never fails to mess with our minds and constantly challenges us to reach levels over 9000 has returned. With a level cap of 9999, we're talking about Disgaea, the Prinny-infested series that can't help but make us feel like hanging out in the Netherworld.
Pros: The satisfying challenge, The great online modes, The offbeat humor
Cons: The grind, How overwhelming the endless options can be, Some of the awful jokes

outside of the fact that it’s not for everybody. But if you long for more games like

Conclusion: Four games into the series, Disgaea hasn't changed. In some ways this is great, why fix what isn't broken right? The battle system gets better with age for instance, one of the most impressive seen in an RPG of this kind.
