Conclusion: La Pucelle is the name of the church that the good guys are a part of. There is a lot of French in the game besides that, too. From wikipedia: “The Goddess “Poitreene” (which is a mispelling : it should be “poitrine”) for example, would literally be “Goddess Breast”. Prier is the verb “to pray” (while the translation in Disgaea, “Priere”, would be prayer). A culotte is a kind of short pants or underwear.
Conclusion: And if the review doesn’t hook their interest in the game, there’s always the fact that the heroine has a chest bigger that would make most grown women jealous. That freaked me out first time I saw it.
Summary: It really pains me to give this game only 4 stars. I really wanted to give it 4 1/2, but since that wasn't an option and since Disgaea is noticably better ... Regardless of Disgaea, La Pucelle still holds its own quite well. The artwork and graphics are great, the La Pucelle story is one of the better ones to come out RPGs lately, and the whole game in general is just pulled off very well.
Summary: If you liked Disgaea.. Then don't buy this.. If you didn't like Disgaea.. Then don't buy this.. If you haven't played Disgaea.. Buy Disgaea.. If your rich and liked Disgaea.. then you should buy it.. Simply put.. Disgaea is better in ever way.. Better graphics, better story, better gameplay, better replay value.. If you have Disgaea there is no reason to degrade yourself by buying Disgaea Lite..
Summary: La Pucelle: Tactics is fast becoming one of my new favorite games for the PS2. An underappreciated TRPG, one hopes that this will become something of a sleeper hit. Here is a brief list of reasons for liking this game: - The Artwork La Pucelle features a rarity these days; hand-drawn sprites. The style is very fitting to the story, and the approach gives it an unique character, rather than a 3-D Final Fantasy clone.
Summary: La Pucelle, like Disgaea Hour of Darkness, sadly is going to be missed by alot of gamers out there. Playing this game makes it incredibly difficult to understand why. Likely it has to do with graphics, which is probably the only aspect of the game that isn't all that great. (the nearly non existant advertising for this game is another likely culprit) From a tactical perspective La Pucelle is an even better game then Final Fantasy tactics.
