Summary: I do which makes it hard to complete this game with the depth it has. I played Kartia for the PS1 and loved it. So I thought I give a srpg another shot in modern gaming. I don't care much for the story but the gameplay is where this game carries its aura. There just SO MUCH content when it comes to customization and strategy is key(as well as saving I learned the hard way). It will keep your mind occupied,I played it pretty much all day today which is Christmas.
Summary: I had never played any Disgaea game before, Mostly all the guys i game with wants to either shoot you in the back, or smash you into a wall and speed off. I never actually heard of Disgaea until this year (and that's only because of Amazon recommending it to me) I like all types of games not just one in particular. So i'm not stuck in any one genre of gaming. What made me buy this game was 3 things. The first thing was from the photos on amazon i saw.
Summary: I still completely despise the ripoff DLC that is offered but the base game itself is excellent. The story is pretty solid though if you dont like any of the other games this style of story probably isn't for you. Unlike 2 and 3 there is only one annoying character (Emizel obviously) and the rest of the cast is great. I played in Japanese voices so I cannot speak to the dub but the voice acting was top notch.
Many improvements, but not quite as charming as previous titles

Summary: Let me preface this review by saying that I still consider Disgaea 4 to be an AMAZING game compared to other sRPGs outside of the series. The Disgaea franchise is known for its quirky sense of humor and amazingly deep combat system. Disgaea 4 does an excellent job of keeping up with that. Pros: +Keeps the core battle system of the Disgaea series but adds some much needed improvements.
Summary: I picked this up when I went on a game hunting spree. I know pretty much nothing about the Disgaea franchise and haven't seen any gameplay at all. After getting home, I was disappointed that you'll need to do a mandatory download of decent size to start playing. After that was out of the way, I got into it and suddenly realized this is definitely one of those games that you need the time investment to truly enjoy.
Summary: I never knew what to expect going into this game as i have never played a Disgaea game in my life but i was surprised at first. This game is very fun and challenging to say the least it has its ups and downs on some of the difficulty an there were some frustrating moments but despite that i am loving this game i don't regret buying it i will definitely being buying Disgaea 5 when ever that hits the market.
Summary: If you've played other games in the series, this is very much a clone of the others with different story and cast with a few new added features.
Pros: Great title. If the tactical strategy RPG genre is your forte this title is a must for your collection. The dialogue is quite absurd, but very witty and well written. English voice acting is superb as well.
Cons: This title could possibly be ported with better options to PS Vita in the future. To get all the DLC content can be expensive, and probably not worth it. The game is quite vast, and can easily get to the point where it becomes an extreme grind to "platnium" status (PS3 trophies).
