Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness PSP Review


At first glance you'd be forgiven for calling it just another SRPG. The genre principles are all present and correct: two tacticians, human or AI, take turns to move their forces around a chessboard map, healing allies and picking fights as appropriate...

This microscopic chink in the armour aside, Afternoon of Darkness is the definitive edition of one of the most inventive and devilishly engrossing forms of escapism ever to escape Japan. So whether you’re a dyed-in-the-wool strategist, genre newcomer...

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness


If you were feeling cruel towards the PSP, you might say that it doesn't have a whole lot going for it except PS2 ports. That's a discussion for another time, but the fact remains that Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness is a faithful port of the original...

The battles are all fairly 'by-the-numbers', but once you get back to the castle you can dive into some other aspects of the game. Of course, experience in battle translates into levels for your characters. The characters can stick to their original...

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness (PSP) review


The release of Disgaea on the PSP could go two ways for the fans. Firstly people who were hoping for a new saga in the story will be disappointed as the game is a port of the Playstation 2 game. The plus side of things though is that this is the best...

The best strategy RPG on the PSP, no contest. Buy it!

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness


Total eclipse of the heart

The game centres on the story of a young demon called Laharl. In the opening scenes, Laharl is awakened from a two-year slumber thanks to a botched assassination attempt by a pink-haired girl with acute amnesia. To add to the boy's problems, he finds...

Disgaea: Afternoon Of Darkness (PSP) review


Deeper than your average RPG

Sheer brilliance, and one of the best titles on the PSP. It even surpasses its PS2 cousin with a slew of extra modes and has the most longevity you’ll ever find within videogames. A fair few of you will hate it, but for the RPG fan it’s a must.

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness


Strategy RPG fans rejoice! NIS' fantastic PS2 classic Disgaea: Hour of Darkness has made it's way onto the PSP, with a new subtitle (Afternoon of Darkness) and a new second...

Incredible Depth ; Great sense of humor ; More content than PS2 original

Steep difficulty may turn off non-hardcore fans ; Limited camera control

Disgaea Afternoon of Darkness


The game can take a minimum of 30 hours to complete, but if you want to experience all there is to this great title you'll need another 30 hours. Is it worth it?

Light humour not seen in many games, combat strategy and character building is unique and driven well

Limited 4 way camera view, steep learning curve

Got at least 40 hours spare? Then go for it.

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness (PSP)


After spending its entire existence mainly as a delivery device for arcade racers and bad UMD movies, the PSP has suddenly found itself as the go-to console for RPG fans. The past couple of months have brought us Tales of the World, Brave Story, and...

This review was based on a retail version of Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness that was purchased by the reviewer with money that he earned by doing numerous turn-based dungeon-clearing quests.

Disgaea Afternoon of Darkness


Fans of the niche-genre of tactics-style RPGs usually have a short list of favorites. Typically, at the top of this list is either Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Ogre, depending on which game they discovered first. Both games were developed by Quest,...

A few new boss battles have been added ; A completely new story mode extends replay appeal for vets of the title ; Plan to spend 100s of hours playing this one

All of the original Etna’s voice acting has been redone to match Michelle Ruff’s work in the anime and Disgaea 2 ; Two Atlus-owned songs, present in the PS2 version, are MIA for this NIS America-published PSP port

It’s the same game you loved on PS2, times two! Even vets of the original will want to pick this one up to play through with Etna in charge!
