Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten

Destructoid
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.

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • 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. The fourth entry ups the ante: there's a whole new story focus on political corruption, more difficult and outrageous levels than ever before (better exploit those Geo Blocks!
  • 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

Disgaea 4

Strategy Informer

  • 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. And the world is even more intriguing than ever, in part due to the move from a school theme to a political one. All of this said, this game could just as easily be a PS2 game, or more likely a PSP title.

(PlayStation 3 Review) Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten

The Entertainment Depot
27 September 2011
  • Summary: Colorful, goofy, funny, and addictive, Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten is a welcome entry to the series. The handful of additions might have longtime fans yearning for more and newcomers intimidated, but there is more than enough here to keep players entertained for hours. Much of the online component is more exciting than it is compelling, being as hands-off as it is, but other players definitely make their presence felt and offer a nice touch of unpredictability to...

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten

GameTrailers
7 September 2011
  • Excerpt: The Disgaea franchise has garnered a cult following over the years, but it's never quite crossed over into mainstream success. Nippon Ichi seems content on maintaining the status quo with Disgaea 4. It's another tactical RPG with the quirky humor and characters that set the series apart, but will its complex system and oddball atmosphere scare most players away?

Console Monster
12 November 2011
  • Summary: Nippon Ichi is back with the fourth instalment of its popular tactical RPG Disgaea. Subtitled ‘A Promise Unforgotten’, this time the story follows the antics of a fallen vampire, Valvatorez (who is bizarrely obsessed by sardines) and his werewolf collaborator, Fenrich. The duo is joined along the way by various companions on their quest to defeat a secret ruler of the human world, who is intent on destroying the netherworld.
  • Pros: A brand new Disgaea story to play through, Genuinely engrossing gameplay, Brand new high-res graphics
  • Cons: Not a lot has changed since last time, Early levels are a slog, Map editor a little lacklustre
