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
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.

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.
Excerpt: Disgaea 4 is the latest entry in the popular strategy RPG series from NIS. In it, former tyrant Valvatorez has been reduced to training the souls of sinful humans in preparation for their years of servitude as Disgaea's iconic, lovable "Prinnies.
Summary: 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.
Pros: Humorous tale filled with memorable characters, Involving tactical battles, Cute artistic style, Plenty of strategic considerations outside of battle
Cons: Very similar to earlier entries in the series, Insufficient tutorials
Summary: The tried-and-true battle system returns with a completely revamped graphic engine! The all-new story, characters and exclusive features include user-generated content and will blow away Disgaea series fans.
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.
