  • Summary: Disgaea delivers fun and chaotic gameplay with interesting quirks around every corner. The characters are lively and charming, and the story simple yet entertaining. Indeed you can skim along and ''complete'' this game fairly easily, but, you're going to want to dive into its near endless depths and see what's lurking beneath the surface.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

RPG LAND
2 January 2005
  • Excerpt: Nippon Ichi and Atlus took a risk in bringing a game with the look and gameplay of Disgaea into North America, where the mainstream gamers have different tastes than their Japanese counterparts. It must have paid off, because a second printing of the US version was needed to meet the demand. Even now, over a year after the game’s release, a used copy sells for nearly the same price the new ones did. So what makes a game good enough to earn such treatment? Let’s find out.

  • Conclusion: For those familiar with any of the strategy-RPG titles listed in the beginning of this review, the game plays similarly. You can control a maximum of 10 characters, for deployment on the battle field. You take turns moving them on the game board, where you can use your skills, items, defend, or conduct melee attacks against your foes. There's an added twist to the board.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness PlayStation 2 Review

Game Info Wire
5 October 2003
  • Excerpt: Chances are, Atlus’ new RPG for the Playstation 2 won’t break any sales records. It will, however, get the attention of hardcore RPG fans. And that could end up being all that matters.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

Game Over Online
9 September 2003
  • Excerpt: Plenty of awesome RPGs have been released this year, nearly every one of them exclusively for the PS2, and plenty more are to come before the year’s end. With that in mind, it’s no secret that role-playing enthusiasts have been getting plenty of love as of late. But what about the fans of that oft-overlooked RPG sub-genre, the tactical-tastic “strategy” RPG?
