Summary: As a veteran Disgaea Player I can assure fellow vets this game is worth the purchase, even though it diverts from the standard Tactical style of the main series. The game is hilarious as to be expected from Disgaea, the art is beautiful and the integrated game play with the largely story-book feel of the game is interesting.
Summary: When I first started playing Disgaea: Infinite, I was expecting typical Disgaea fare: a turn based JRPG with an over-the-top story and plenty of hilarious Prinny antics. However, though the game delivered on the last two elements, the JRPG elements were completely removed. Disgaea Infinite has a bit more meat on its bones by offering users different methods to reach a variety of endings that feature other NIS characters.
Summary: I, at least on a personal level, like long and challenging games. This was the complete opposite of what I expected- but I gave it a shot anyway. It didn't take long- it took me 2 hours to beat the game, including getting 100% of the endings. First, I'll sum up the plot- You (A Prinny) must prevent the assassination of Lord Laharl. You see, someone killed him with pudding. Fortunately for you (and the plot) you find a device that lets your soul travel through time.
Summary: If you are looking a game then don't buy Disgaea Infinite because it's visual novel with a frustrating "trial and error system" Disgaea Infinite is worth a buy if you don't expect it to be anything but a visual novel. The story and humor is still there.
Summary: If you are a fan of Disgaea and want to get more insight into its back story, grab this game right now. Granted, it's not the usual SJRPG fare, but it is still quite enjoyable. Also, the US version includes both Japanese and English languages.
Summary: Disgaea Infinite is good fun if you're a diehard Disgaea fan. It offers the player a lot of classic Disgaea humour in a series of fully voiced scenes. It has a fair amount of content to collect; Art, Music, Character Sheets and a database of in-game references/material. The game has 14 endings, with 13 of those based on what actions you take in the game and one "secret" ending. However, the game is INCREDIBLY short; I completed mine 100% in only a few hours.
Summary: I've reviewed a fair number of niche games on Amazon already. This one is probably one of the most niche games I've reviewed thus far. Disgaea Infinite is a visual novel based on the world and characters of the Disgaea series. What's a visual novel, you ask? Well, in this case, it's sort of like a choose-your-own-adventure book -- you watch the characters interact with each other and then your choices impact how the story unfolds.
Summary: Before even starting the game, after about 30 seconds, you are taken from the title screen and shown a little cutscene that gives the player a "recap" of the history of Disgaea. I use the quotes because after the completely random and innaccurate cutscene, some of the characters even appear andpoint out how stupid and wrong the recap you were just watching was. Man, this game already broke the 4th wall before I even got a chance to press "New Game.
