5.0 out of 5 stars
oh man. say goodbye to friends., Jan 2 2004
I judge books by their covers. Or, in this instance, Playstation 2 games by their cases. The cartoony art on the cover drew me in.
I'm glad that I'm a sucker for cute art, because Disgaea has stolen my soul.
The plot's wacky. Hardly, if at all, does it take itself seriously. Right down my alley.
The art's great, like something fresh from an anime. Yes, this is a reason why I buy games.
The gameplay, oh man. The gameplay makes me want to become a video game so that I can somehow defy logic/biology and become pregnant by this game.
The voice acting isn't terrible.
The music is lacking, but surely, anything, if heard for hours on end, would grate on one's nerves.
Oh, this game will take away a lot of my boring time when I can find no friends around. It'll make me a hermit, and I am glad.
Disgaea: Hour of Darkness was definitely the best $50 I have spent in a while.
To elaborate on my ratings:
FUN: I definitely think it deserves five stars as demonstrated by my review.
EDUCATIONAL VALUE: Well, you never know when you will be in hell fighting a bunch of demons for the right to the throne, while you can somehow control the people on your side from a 3/4 perspective. In some people's lives, I guess this can be training for something.
DURABLE: It's a CD. It has a case to protect it, but it's just as durable as any other single-sided game disc on its own. IF USED FOR ITS INTENDED PURPOSE AND TREATED WITH RESPECT AND CARE AS CDS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE, it has a nice durability! Kicking, biting, scratching, yelling at, covering in mud, and hitting with bats is not recommended for optimal durability.
