Console Monster writes: "Lovers of grid maps and tactical role playing games, gather round and listen to this tale of deities, deception and downright dastardliness; stuff that Disgaea 3 is drenched in. Playing as Mao, a student at the Maritsu Evil Academy, this troubled demon has a somewhat skewed vision of what a true hero really is. Moa is out to kill his Dad, the overlord, and decides that the best chance of achieving this goal is by being the greatest hero. What hideous horror could a father have done to warrant such wrath? Wiping out a 4 million hour save game by treading on his SlayStation Portable, that's what! It's enough to send any dedicated gaming junkie to the edge of relative reason."
