Disgaea (Nintendo DS)
Disgaea is an absolutely fantastic series as well as a knock-out rpg turn-based game. If you are new to Disgaea (like I was) but are interested in taking the plunge then this is definitely the place to start.
The DS version of this game (which is effectively Disgaea 1) includes a brand new alternative storyline alongside the original! Though I would recommend playing the original story first :)
The top screen on the DS has an overhead map/grid which really is essential for Disgaea gameplay since one of the game's only minor faults is its camera angle obscurity.
Lots of alternative endings!!!
The only aspect of this game that I can't comment on is the multiplayer since I've never had anyone to play against! Chances are, like other rpgs, this is not the game's strong point.
All in all, this is the best Disgaea experience ever. It goes alongside The World Ends With You, Pokemon Diamond and Advanced Wars in my DS collection.
The game's characters, story and gameplay are all top notch and the series' sense of humour is really something special. I'd easily recommend this over the recent PS3 release of Disgaea 3 - a handheld game on a powerful console seems totally out of place...
Play this and be converted Dood! Curse you Flonne ! ! !
