Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness review

  • Wonderful presentation
  • Incredibly deep gameplay
  • Versus mode
  • Steep learning curve
  • Replaying missions
  • Noisy UMD - quiet!

Yes, this is a port of a four-year-old PS2 game. But it's a perfect port with an entirely new side-story (an all-Etna mode) and a one-on-one versus mode. The original was a highly sought-after gem, and this re-issue is everything it was and more (our only PSP-specific critique is the incessant whirring of the UMD). If you're into tactical RPGs at all, or want to see the genre done in a more playful manner than Final Fantasy or Fire Emblem, then this is without a doubt one of the deepest, craziest, most time consuming games you could ever play.
