View Full Version : Disgaea series of games

I am a big fan of the games (good story and humour... great combination) and have put many hours into these games.

I have over 800 hours on the original game split between the PS2 and PSP versions, including Etna mode on PSP. I have played the DS version which is the most complete version of the series (though you lose out on some(?) of the voice acting).

Disgaea 2 I have not played as much but completed the Japanese version on PS2 and the US version on the PSP, including the DLC for the game. I still have the alternate storyline to play. I did buy the US version of the PS2 game but never completed it.

I put in a fair number of hours (400ish) on the third game (on PS3). I bought the US version (due to not wanting to wait for a UK version) and have one of the characters levels maxxed out (around 170,000 levels!) and can now level characters ridiculously fast. I also bought the DLC for the game. I subsequently bought the UK release (cheap!) though I have not played it to the same extent.

I have only played the first Disgaea for PSP, though I did not get far in it. For me, it was too difficult to complete. However, from what I have played of the game, I enjoyed it. It has a humorous plot with an entertaining cast of characters.

Hands down, Etna is my favorite. She is great :D

Unfortunately the Disgaea series benefits from a lot of level grinding. Fortunately there are maps which lend themselves to this. Weapon levelling via the Item World also helps.

I have a preference for Mages and try to unlock the Galaxy variety which is the most versatile. Given a few high level Galaxy Mages the first game can be completed relatively easily. Etna Mode requires a higher level set of characters.

I must say Etna is also my favourite. Some excellent voice acting helps as well.
