  • Excerpt: It's easy to feel disappointed when playing Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories , mainly because the narrative isn't up to par with the previous game. It's not unreasonable to expect Disgaea 2 to ape its predecessor by delivering unique takes on various RPG tropes, though such anticipation will eventually lead to heartache.

Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Disgaea: Hour of Darkness was a fantastically deep strategy RPG, with a madcap sense of humour that extended from the storyline to the gameplay itself. It’s addictive nature kept hold of people and didn’t let them go until they had an army of level 1000 warriors in their hands. Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories is more of the same, with little more than a few tweaks to the winning mechanics.

  • Conclusion: Unfortunately, Disgaea 2's most evil overlord isn't any of the in-game bosses, but a living, breathing entity: the crafty Baron Von Viewpoint. Throughout the game, you'll be happily enjoying yourself and your gaming experience, and the Baron will come crashing in to irritate you like a red-hot poker to the groin.

  • Conclusion: In the end, this is the downfall of Disgaea 2 – it’s a fun game in short bursts, but too repetitive for the promised 100 hours of play. There’s plenty to do, but everything begins to feel the same after a time, and while most RPGs would be able to use their story to carry themselves through that, Disgaea 2’s narrative isn’t compelling enough to be able to rely on in that fashion.

  • Excerpt: When Disgaea: Hour of Darkness was released for the PlayStation 2 in August 2003, the company Nippon Ichi was relatively unknown in the US. However, with large success due to such great strategy-RPG titles such as Disgaea , La Pucelle and Makai Kingdom , the company has propelled itself into becoming a fan favorite among RPG gamers.

Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories (PS2) Review

411mania.com
11 May 2007
  • Summary: In some ways, Disgaea 2 is almost exactly like the first title in the series-- it suffers at times from a lack of explanation of various terms or features. Many of the new additions are tweaks to the gameplay of the original title; the Dark Court and subpoena routines are really extensions of the item world, for example, and the game still hasn't fixed the occasionally annoying camera issues.

  • Excerpt: It's finally happened! Years after Nippon Ichi's classic SRPG "Disgaea" was released, Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories has come to light! During the interim, cousin titles to the Disgaea universe, such as Phantom Brave and Makai Kingdom, were released; but for some reason, they just did not seem to impress the hardcore 2D RPG fans the same way that Disgaea did.

Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories

Playstation Illustrated
5 May 2007
  • Excerpt: The original Disgaea was able to do something that few strategy games have managed to do – it sold well. Whereas subsequent games from NIS have done well, none have managed to really capture Disgaea ’s simple complexity and charm. Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories tweaks the formula ever so slightly while keeping it true to its roots. As with the original, Disgaea 2 doesn’t break any barriers with its visuals. Characters are still low-res 2D sprites on a blocky, 3D battlefield.
