IGN - Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten Review

Disgaea 4 plays it safe and sticks with the same winning formula it has used for almost a decade. If more Disgaea sounds like a good time to you, dig in. That also means it will still be too daunting and arduous for many people. This is a game for those who like taking their time and being methodical. If you've got the patience, there are hundreds of hours of brilliant strategy gameplay waiting inside Disgaea 4.

Awesome! It's in the mail right now, should be arriving today, but I won't be home until very late tonight, so I'll have to wait til tomorrow to play it. Even then I may end up waiting a few more days because I still haven't finished up with Deus Ex.

Lol, you compare it wrong dude. Disgaea is a T/SRPG and Persona is a turn-based RPG.

And even though i loved Persona 3, but Persona 2 gameplay are slightly better than Persona 3. Why? cause in Persona 2 you can still negotiate with the demon or used Rumormonger for what (secret) item will appear in the stores...and even affecting the stories. In persona 3 you can't do that all.

Pretty neat review but what happened to the rotating camera?

Cablephish4465d ago

Some reviewers argued the the camera obstacles would get in the way from certain views. It would be great if they had the option to rotate during execution, but that would take a lot of sprite work.

Agreed i hope this fool is made an example of so other internet gangster wannabes think twice!
I hope this story is given allot of exposure so idiots realise you cant get away with unnaceptable behaviour just because its online.

Great news: I played the first 2 on PSP, but never played any of these. Hopefully all DLC is included.

MegaRay3119d ago

Hopefully they discount the standalone versions. $40 for D3 (on Vita) is outrageous.

KellyKandy3119d ago

Played these back in the day, i preferred final fantasy.

Yi-Long3119d ago

Kinda different genre, but I LOVE the excellent humour in Disgaea...
