5.0 out of 5 stars A Grindfest lovers' dream. 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing games in the Disgaea series since picking up Disgaea : Hour of Darkness for PS2 about 6 years back, and the games have gotten progressively better and better with each re-release. If you have this game already for PS3, don't let the fact it's a port put you off. This improves on MANY issues with the PS3 version, and adds some entirely new features and improvements not seen in any existing Disgaea games yet.

For those that have played the PS3 version, this game includes all of the Raspberyl mode DLC from that version, all character DLC, and various new DLC-esque expansions. The entirely new content in this game is the addition of two new chapters for characters Rutile (a Half human, half nekomata delinquent), and Stellar Grossenburg (A Majin in training). The replacement of voice actors and the lack of emotions displayed by said actors makes these new chapters somewhat lackluster, but the experience overall is nice, and adds some fun new content to the game. In terms of minor additions, the "Skip animations" setting will no longer skip animations for attacks you haven't seen yet. They also added a new "Absorb" function in the class, so once you have created a character, you can completely absorb them to take all of their skills, evilities, and a portion of their levels. Finally, characters Fuka and Desco from Disgaea 4 have been added as an "End game" treat, once you have completed all extra scenarios.

For those who have never played a Disgaea game. Are you a fan of RPGs? Strategy games? Have you played Final Fantasy Tactics, or Tactics Ogre, but been left feeling like there just wasn't enough content? Disgaea is a great series to get in to.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a newbie....but love it! 20 May 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok...I will be honest...I almost gave up on this straight away as it seems like there is a lot to learn (I have never encountered the series before). I love Final Fantasy etc so the genre is familiar, but wow this game is pretty out there and really different. It has great humour, though, and once you kinda embrace the madness, it is a brilliant game. I have been on it today for around 8 hours and have barely scratched the surface. It's the kind of thing I was looking for, having invested in a Vita I wanted an immersive/addictive game.

All I would say is GIVE IT A GOOD CHANCE before you make your mind up. It is certainly different, there is quite a lot to learn, but it is so worth it and for me is a definite must have for the Vita.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively deep and perfect for Vita 12 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase
Disgaea 3 is a humorous, fiendishly addictive SRPG that fits the Vita better than it ever did the PS3. The turn-based strategy maps are easy to drop in and out of for short sessions, but numerous and varied enough for longer sessions. The Vita version also contains all paid DLC from the console release for free, on top of its own exclusive content. Basically, way more content than you could shake any manner of stick at.

The mechanics are as numerous as they are complex. To put it briefly, the maximum character level is 9999. It gets more ridiculous from there, but the game does ease you into its more intimidating aspects in the opening hours. After the very charmingly written story (featuring excellent full voice acting in both English and Japanese) is over, the true number crunching begins. There's never a shortage of things to do and achieve in Disgaea 3, so it's well worth the price tag.

The game contains references to parts 1 and 2, but is otherwise an independent story that stands entirely alone. The whole series is of course worth playing, but Disgaea 3's accessibility and lightheartedness make it a good starting point.

For SRPG players, this is a no-brainer. If you just like JRPGs or anime, it's very well worth looking into. Chances are you'll find something to love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value. 11 April 2014
By Rudi
Verified Purchase
Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention not only brings you every DLC that was available in the PS3 version, it tweaks the game with several improvements that were only present in Disgaea 4 AND adds a bunch of new stuff that even Disgaea 4 didn't have. The game is less expensive than the combined cost of all the DLC for the PS3 version and the new features will make sure this monster consumes hundreds of hours of your time, again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tons of fun and amazing value for money!! 17 May 2012
By Rahul

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all I should say that i'm a veteran of the series having played the previous two titles. If you are completely new to the series then you may find it slightly overwhelming as you play on, but please don't stop reading now because once you get your head around the game mechanics it is well worth your time!

The main story is fairly short but it is well written and is downright zany! It likes to poke fun at most cliches in RPG games and does so very well. It doesn't take itself too seriously. It also has an equally zany cast of characters which make this game absolutely brilliant! Once the main story is completed you are left with tons of sidequests to complete, which take up the majority of the game. It could take you 100+ hours to finish everything and see everything. Also for fans of the series most of your favourite characters from previous games make an appearance so there some great fan service (as expected from NIS America).

I should probably elabourate slightly. In this game you can level your characters to lv9999. There are over 50 classes of character each with their own sets of special moves which can be upgraded separately. There are a large selection of items, which (surprise, surprise) can be leveled seperately in an interesting fashion. Each item has its own little world which is a randomly generated dungeon. Battling through this will level your item up. If this wasn't enough there are also multiple ending to unlock and things like 'pirating' and the 'Land of Carnage' to get acquainted with.

Also if you already own the ps3 version of this it is worth noting that the Vita version actually contains all DLC as part of the standard game.
