PSX Extreme writes: "When Disgaea: Hour of Darkness released for the PS2, it sparked a surprising love-fest that encompassed dozens of critics and many, many fans of the strategy/RPG genre. Most weren't even aware of its arrival, but after such phenomenal feedback, everyone began to flock towards Nippon Ichi's niche title. Now, here we are in a new generation, and this series continues to thrive; Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice has released, much to the delight of the legion of avid Disgaea fans. And after spending a good deal of time with this installment, we can only come to one conclusion: the game is fantastic…provided you have a ridiculous amount of time on your hands. With each successive entry in the franchise, we say to ourselves, "damn, can a game get any deeper?" Then, when the next title comes, we learn the answer: Yes, it can. But you had best be a student who isn't involved in any extra-curricular activities, because otherwise, this game will force you to quit your job or dump the girlfriend."
