"Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! is a side-scrolling throwback that classic gamers should definitely enjoy."
Etna, fan-favorite Disgaea vixen, has a problem: her panties have been pilfered. This demon princess simply can't stand for lingerie being lifted, so off fly 1000 Prinnies to retrieve the garments in question. And how are they going to go about it? By collecting rare items (soda cups, anyone?) and trapping the panty-raiding son-of-a-gun by using those gathered items as bait. It's awkward, it's hilarious, and it's, well...expected. Welcome to Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood!
Keep in mind that the game is centered around panties, so it's best to remember to not take things completely seriously. Much like in the previous Disgaea spinoff, Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?, this adventure eschews the dark themes of the popular strategy RPG and aims to please fans with plenty of tongue-in-cheek references, silly jokes, and harebrained schemes that remind us exactly why we love the adorable little Prinnies.
Don't take this adorable little side-quest at face value, though. It may look innocent, but as far as difficulty goes, it's downright insidious. The previous installment to the Prinny series was known for its crushing difficulty and this sequel does follow suit. However, its added "Baby Mode" should hit the spot for gamers fearful that they can't stand up to the challenge... if only just barely. With the three difficulty modes measured by the number of hits your character can take before arriving at the 'game over' screen, Baby Mode is exactly how I stayed sane.
