14 April 2010
Excerpt: If you suspect that you might be what the games industry has affectionately labelled a 'casual gamer', stop reading; I'm afraid this game just isn't for you. A frightening combination of statistics, attributes and menu screens glued together with anime visuals and a ludicrous narrative make the...
Excerpt: Like Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness , Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days is a re-release of the PS2 version with a few new additions. If you're not a fan of the series or genre, new features won't win you over, but they may be enough to entice fans into a repurchase.
Summary: Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days is the definitive version of D2, incorporating gameplay mechanics from D3 and expounding on them, as well as some completely new ones. It excels in gameplay, but falls short in the story department. If you missed the PS2 version, definitely pick this up.

Excerpt: Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days continues the recent trend of PSP rereleases, retooling Disgaea 2 and dropping it onto Sony’s handheld with some new features. Although it adds some interesting new content, including an epilogue starring Axel, Dark Hero Days lacks some of the wit and energy that made...
