Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

Into Liquid Sky
18 November 2004
  • Excerpt: I never really imagined that a Strategy RPG can be this fun. Heck, I was even surprised that I spent over 40 hours into this game the first week I bought it. I did lose at least 15 hours of sleep but I was able to unlock a new class and that alone is very satisfying but sort of useless.
  • Pros: Great sound track, voice acting, and spell effects, It takes you about five to ten minutes to get used to everything, A lot of replay value
  • Cons: Graphics are very outdated, No save options in Item World

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

4 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Take one part Precious Moments , add in some anime and just a touch of one of those over-the-top 'Devil Worshiping' 80s metal bands (you know, big hair and odd costumes), and you've got a good idea of the visuals found in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness .

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

Just RPG
28 July 2004
  • Excerpt: When a game claims that “Strategy RPGs are about to get a serious kick in the ass!”, either the game will be a big disappointment, or in Disgaea ’s case, it delivers what it promised. Disgaea is easily one of the top RPGs of the year, and one of my new favorite games.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness review (PS2)

HonestGamers
25 May 2004
  • Excerpt: The list of immersive games that manage to combine tactical strategies with roleplaying elements is a small one. At the top of that list lurks Final Fantasy Tactics , one of the genre’s few that successfully combines statistical formulas and a macabre storyline without the feeling of overbearing...

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness review (PS2)

HonestGamers
18 October 2003
  • Excerpt: I have this theory that any company will eventually produce a masterpiece, given enough resources and the right developers, armed with just the right idea at just the right time. For Square it was arguably Final Fantasy VII , the game that has done more to define that company than any other.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If you're looking for this kind of entertainment, look no further. If you were on the fence about it, I seriously wouldn't bother. Fans of the turn-based strategy genre will rejoice and know immediately in reading this review (and others) that this is something they're going to cherish,...

  • Summary: Strategy RPG fans are treated in quick succession to a pair of strategy RPGs this fall, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, and Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. I’ve picked up both and must say that I am feelin’ Disgaea a hell of a lot more than Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
