"In the end, though, the reasons Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice fails to rock as hard as its predecessors have little to do with technical concerns. The game instead falters slightly because it couldn't pull a rabbit out of the hat and produce something wholly new and exciting that we haven't already seen from the franchise. Evolution can be a grand thing, though, and that's precisely what's offered here. The attempt to cover new narrative ground is commendable, the gameplay depth is astonishing on a whole new level and in general the Netherworld remains a thrilling destination. This most recent excursion might not be a technical showpiece for your PS3, but most discerning SRPG fanatics will enjoy spending an insane number of hours experiencing it in spite of that."
