Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness Review— A Slight Blemish (The Koalition)

Garrett of The Koalition writes:

I'm torn. I love SRPGs, and I believe Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness is a fine example of the genre. While it's mechanically solid and hilariously written, it does have a game-crashing flaw, which diminishes its quality. Otherwise, I have no doubt that Disgaea D2 would fit in any SRPG fan's collection. (Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness, PS3) 70/100

"I’ve never played a Disgaea game before this one... I'm just a fan of SRPGs"

The two don't seem to add up, reviewer really needs to go play the others.

"It also didn’t help that I noticed four decimal places, leading up to a maximum level of 1,000."

Ummm... ok, 1000... if there's one thing Disgaea is known for it's levelling to 9999. And then that's only a fraction of truly levelling your characters.

"Outside of the story, Laharl and (sort of?) friends can explore the castle, which serves as the HUD"

HUD? Must be a TLA I've missed out on or maybe he meant hub?

Some odd stuff in that review and a whole hell of a lot more to the Disgaea games than is touched on there.

I justed started the Disgaea series with Afternoon of Darkness. It's been a lot of fun so far. It's nice knowing there are other games in the series to play and especially one that stars the originals again.
