Excerpt: When Disgaea 4 was announced, the second question everybody asked themselves was “Isthis game going to be different from the last three?” The first question had naturally been, “Are there better graphics now?”, the answer to which is”Yes.” Disgaea 4 isn’t actually all that different from the previous games in the series, but it still shows that the Disgaea series can grow up and continue to refine itself, while preserving the things that made the others lovable.
Excerpt: As a long-time fan of the Disgaea series, I was predisposed to like Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten . That's not to say it is a perfect offering - as always, there are problems - though the game has an undeniable charm and hundreds of hours of strategic depth, making it a must play for fans of Strategy RPGs. Disgaea 4 's biggest upgrade is the visuals. The low-res sprites have been completely replaced with hi-res sprites.
Summary: There’s almost nothing bad to say about
outside of the fact that it’s not for everybody. But if you long for more games like

Where usually I only have one game every 2-3 months to look forward to, I now have so many to play that I couldn’t fit them all in my schedule even if I wanted to. Atelier Totori , Xenoblade Chronicles , Disgaea 4 , Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny , White Knight Chronicles 2 , and Dark Souls , all in the space of about a month and a half.
Excerpt: While the story is new and its high-quality presentation is a delight that long-time fans by now take for granted, you’ll likely be surprised by some of the other improvements. For instance, it’s now possible to assemble your own pirate ship so that you can raid the Item World. On trips to your own Item World, you’ll find parts that you can use to customize your ship, plus you’ll battle more pirates than ever before.
Excerpt: debuted on the PS2 back in 2003, strategy/RPG fans were in heaven. It generated an outpouring of praise from both critics and gamers, and that phenomenon launched the franchise. It was also the birth of the Prinny, which has become a staple of a different kind.
