Anyone who ever enjoyed a strategy RPG, who ever thought some games took themselves far too seriously, and who ever liked the idea of playing as a demon who wants complete domination of Hell itself should seriously consider this game.

Laharl is the son of the ruler of the Netherworld, and wakes up after two years to find his father dead and his kingdom gone to the dogs. Time to mourn? Nope, with the main obstacle to becoming Overlord out of the way, it's time for the young prince to take over. Of course, things never go quite so simply, especially when your greatest ally is as much of a back-stabbing demon as you are, and when angel assassins come knocking at your door.

Included in this release are extras such as a music store, collection details and extra dungeons not seen in the PS2 version, as well as a full "what if" alternate story that deals with what would have happened without Laharl. To say nothing of the PSP's sleep mode, allowing you to effectively put a long dungeon crawl on hold for days if necessary.

With enough challenges and features to appeal to hardcore returning fans and newcomers alike, Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness is the definitive version of one of the most charming games of all time.

When this game first arrived on playstation 2 it killed me that i had to be in my own home to play it.

For those of you that remember and loved the playstation 1 game Vandal hearts, you will love this.

Since it has arrived on psp i have not been able to put it down, the odds of you finding a hand held game that was capable of consuming so much of your time were so slim, but this game is now even bigger than the playstation 2 version, it has a whole alternative story line and a few easter eggs for long time disgaea fans.

A great story line with humor

The ability to customize your army

An incredible amount of levels

Great characters

I have well over 100 hours of playing time on this game and as sad as it sounds i don't regret it,

I don't know about anybody else but i do not play handheld games in my own home, i use them for killing time whilst travelling and what not but this is the exception.

If you are looking for a game that will keep you busy i definitely recommend Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness

Disgaea is the name of a Strategic RPG franchise for the Sony Playstation consoles. The first game, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, was released on the Playstation 2 in 2003 and was subsequently remade for the handheld, Sony PSP with the new title, Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness in 2007, allowing players to carry the world of Disgaea in their hands.

The reason I picked up this game was due to the release of Disgaea 3 on the PS Vita, which had a distinctive anime style, also present in this earlier title, which appealed to me. However, I wasn't too keen on jumping into the franchise on the third installment, so I investigated the earlier two games and was pleased to find they were both available as downloads on Playstation Store and playable on my PS Vita. I picked up the full game at the reasonable price of £9.99 and was instantly immersed in the ultra-cute manga animations.

Disgaea follows the misadventures of demon prince, Laharl, who is awoken from his slumber by his (seemingly) loyal servant, Etna, and told that his father has died and he is the rightful heir to the title of Overlord of the Nether-Realm. The downside is that every other demon worth his salt is also clamouring for the title (including Etna) and prince Laharl is tasked with defeating all of the upstarts in order to claim his birthright as Overlord.

The gameplay of a SRPG or Strategic Role-Playing Game is that the player has to create an army and play them on a grid-based battle arena and fight a similar-sized army for dominance. This varies from traditional RPGs, which require more freedom and travelling across areas with frequent skirmishes.

First off, if youre familiar with tactics games such as final fantasy tactics, onimusha tactics, front mission etc you will be well at home with this game.

So far ive got about 12hrs gameplay and im on chapter 4 (out of 14!) but i have spent alot of time other than following the main story. The story itself is a breath of fresh air. You play Laharl a young demon price vying for control of the throne of the underworld after his farthers death.

The graphics are of a nice anime quality and with good special effects. Characters are great even from the start, Prinnys are amazing (basically penguins with knifes!) and in a way similar to FF tactics you can hire other units for use in battle ranging from healers, thiefs, mages, warriors and even gun users (striders).

The game plays as you would expect with Laharls castle being you envoy to the different missions. One of the things i found most unique is that there is a world inside every item in the game! the maps are randomly generated and the idea is to keep progressing further into the item in order to make is stronger which i think is a great idea.

There is a hell of alot to this game, you can even lift and throw your characters to unreacable parts of the map, this adds again to the stratergy of the battles as you really do have to put some serious thought in.

The only downsides i can think of as with most TBS games is that if you only follow the story missions the game wont take long to complete and on the spin side could get boring for some gamers not used to the genre is doing alot of side missions.

All in all, with varied classes that all feel very different and an assortment of 'hero' characters, this game really shines of in the TBS stratergy genre, a definate must have for any fan of the genre and also a great game for PSP owners lokking for something a little different!
