Disgaea 5 Complete
It's also a little unintuitive and messy. For a game that portrays a breezy and comedic tone it's also designed for those that are gluttons for statistics and layers upon layers of systems. What that means is lots of complexity, which is good, but also a daunting edifice for those that are accustomed to lighter-touch strategy games. Practically every strategy game has many layers of systems and mechanics, but Disgaea 5 Complete is rather next level in the depth it offers; to be clear we commend the infrastructure, but it's wrapped in a user interface that throws so much at players that those without complete focus will forget the majority of the options available to them. Unlike some games in the genre that feel accessible even when they're actually throwing around complicated ideas, Disgaea 5 Complete skips the accessibility part and offers the depth regardless.
Disgaea 5 Complete
This is reflected in the sheer range of activities you undertake away from the core campaign 'chapters'. In your hub world you start off with various stores, a hospital to heal your team (in exchange for money, of course) and some areas of interest. In little time however you're tackling sub-quests, and embarking upon an impressive range of sub-tasks. For example you can build 'squads' with your roster, and being in these squads can impact their capabilities in battles - so they may be able to capture units, for example; you can then have an interrogation squad try to flip those enemy units. Another example is that you complete sub-quests to unlock new character classes, and then recruiting them may unlock entirely different features or optional Netherworlds to explore.
From a pure difficulty perspective, so far (I've only put 4 hours into Disgaea 5) I find FE to be much more difficult in general (The way I play, perma-death, not letting anyone die). But the system complexity of Disgaea 5 made it a little more difficult for me to get into, and I can see why someone completely unfamiliar with the genre would give up on it. That said, if you are at all familiar with tactics/strategy RPGs, I think this is a great game for everyone, and I love it on switch due to being able to take it with me.
I've finished the demo and am anxiously awaiting the complete game. (Amazon says tomorrow!) I've never played a Disgaea game before, but this is right up my alley, and may actually keep me enthralled for longer than BOTW. But the review reads pretty true to me, it's definitely not a game everyone will enjoy.
I'm a strategy lover( oh how I pray for a advance wars on switch!) that had never played disgaea. I played the demo and it looks....weirdly fun? I have heard just as was stated in the review, difficulty ramps up a lot and the game throws a million stats to watch.
A major new gameplay addition is Revenge Mode. When characters take damage or their allies fall in battle, a new Revenge Gauge shown in state indicators will fill up. Once it is completely filled up, characters enter Revenge Mode and gain new abilities and stat boosts. When characters are in Revenge Mode, incoming damage is reduced by 25% and all skills cost 1 SP to use. Overlord characters can use an Overload Skill once per stage in Revenge Mode, and all characters can learn a standard Overload Skill from the Dark Assembly. An unfilled Revenge Gauge is maintained between stages, but once a character is deployed with a filled Revenge Gauge they will immediately enter Revenge Mode and the Revenge Gauge will be cleared after the mode expires or stage ends. Enemies can also enter Revenge Mode and gain the same advantages player characters do, but defeating an enemy in revenge mode will award one of various types of Shards, an item type that can be used on a character to permanently improve one of its stats.
Other new features include the Innocent Farm. The Innocent Farm functions similarly to the Day Care centers found in the Pokémon series. By leaving Innocents in the Innocent Farm, Innocents will grow as the player completes battles or clears stages in the Item World and the Chara World. Innocents can breed after a certain amount of time and create a new Innocent.
For players unfamiliar with the DLC, it is comprised of sub-scenarios with characters from previous games. They are completely unrelated to the main story and must be cleared to unlock characters from the previous games. Each scenario is suited for lower leveled parties, so players can unlock them early! On the flip side, acquiring this DLC content will make the beginning part of the game a complete breeze.
Disgaea 5's story opens with Seraphina, an overlord, completely in over-her-head against the evil Void Dark on his conquest to dominate the Netherworld. During one of her skirmishes, she's rescued by the protagonist, Killia. After their encounter, Seraphina insists that Killia be her servant and the two wind up as partners with similar goals.

The thing is, you aren't told when these incredibly helpful bills become available, so you should check in with the Dark Assembly regularly to see what's been added. The Quest Shop is in a similar position. If anything, it's even more important than the Dark Assembly because you have to complete quests to unlock new classes. Some quests also reward rare scrolls which you can use to add new skills to a character's repertoire, so keep your eyes peeled.
I take it the original Japanese voices aren't an option?Anyway, I liked Disgaea 1 and 2, but why do these games have to be so darn long? I'm thinking of getting back into the series, but I don't know if I really have the time to complete this.
With that said, I was a bit hesitant when NISA announced Disgaea 5 Complete for the Nintendo Switch. The release would feature the complete base game, while also adding all of the DLC that was available for purchase on the PlayStation 4. Perhaps I did feel a bit slighted because I originally purchased all of the DLC separately, but the Switch version presented something that the PlayStation 4 version couldn't do: portability.
This morning, NIS America announced that Disgaea 5 Complete would be coming to the Nintendo Switch in Spring 2017. This edition of the strategy RPG will come complete with all the scenarios, characters, classes, and other DLC that came out for the game in its PlayStation 4 and PS Vita iterations. 041b061a72
