4.0 out of 5 stars I actually love this game, 3 July 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Disgaea (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I still don't know how to pronounce the title of this game despite owning it for several months now, but I don't think that's important. What is important is how much I love this game.

The first great thing about this game is that the voice acting doesn't make me want to tear my hair out. The main characters also have their own personalities, which I think makes it more interesting, and you're allowed to create your own characters and name them. Which reminds me, I must change the name of one of them, as I called one of my characters Cadence, and then I heard Cadence's voice... and it's a boy. Luckily, changing the character's name is easy enough, so long as they are not already pre-made characters.

The battle system is a bit like chess, including the fact that certain characters can only move a certain number of steps, such as the mages, while others can move further, like brawlers. Different weapons unlock different abilities. My favourite weapons are the guns because they allow you to attack from further away. I also like some of the special abilities, particularly the hurricane slash and the poison arrow (I think that's what they're called), which I think are graphically entertaining.

The game itself really requires tactics. You can do group attacks if you set them up properly, and you can time the destruction of geo symbols, or move them, in a way that is advantageous to your characters. In particular, I like moving invincibility geo symbols to only the coloured squares that I'm standing on, and then use my weaker characters to beat up the opposition (who obviously aren't standing on those squares) in order to level them up without running the risk of killing them.

I haven't tried the multi-play function of this game, so I can't rate that.

So far, I have played with this game for forty hours, and I'm only on episode 3. I really like the longevity of it. It's my favourite rpg by far.
