Summary: The Disgaea franchise is a decade old. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that, even as I write this. Developer NIS' Makai series has been one of my favorite franchises in gaming ever since I first went along with Laharl, Etna, and Flonne through their journey for dominance of the Netherworld.
Conclusion: If you aren't already a fan of this franchise Disgaea D2 won't draw you in to its weird world. Series fans will find the familiar here and NIS went out of their way to provide plenty of jokes just for the real fans.
Summary: " Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness " is a safe and satisfying return to Disgaea's always excellent standard, and for the most part is as fun and addictive as its always been. The comeback of the series' best characters and storyline is also a treat diehard fans have been waiting for.

28 October 2013
Excerpt: It’s been ten long years since Disgaea fans got their first look at the visages of the iconic characters of Laharl, Etna and Flonne in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.

Laharl Is Still Laughing HA HA HA | Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness Review

Conclusion: While Disgaea isn’t nearly as well-known as say Final Fantasy Tactics , it has long been prized by fans for its anime-style graphics, oddball story and characters, hilariously random dialogue, and most importantly the obscene amount of customization available.
Summary: The Disgaea series, for those unaware,is a series of tactical turn based RPGs of grandiose scale. For those familiar and fond of the tactical RPG genre, the series is like an energetic, favoured pet that keeps coming back to show off all the new tricks it has learned since the last time you met.
Conclusion: Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptors of Alcohol Reference, Fantasy Violence, Language, Partial Nudity, and Suggestive Themes. While you do fight monsters with weapons and magic attacks, the overhead view of the action negates a lot of the violence.
