If you’re a fan of the Disgaea series or of strategy RPGs in general, look no further than Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness. It’s the most refined and aesthetically pleasing Disgaea title to date.
Nippon Ichi Software has handled this game very well, which perhaps shouldn’t come as a surprise since it’s the fifth game in the series (though the first to function as a direct sequel to the first title, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness). Unlike most direct sequels in JRPG history, this new entry doesn’t feel like a cash-in. It actually adds to the lore and to the characters of the series in a proper and tasteful way. Not only that, but the developers were also able to maintain the sense of humor and awareness for which the Disgaea series is known. A year has now passed since the events depicted in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, and while much time has passed here in the real world, not much has really changed in the Netherworld for our lovable main characters.
