When I got my review copy of Digaea 5 I thought to myself let’s try something new.

I used to hear great stories of this game but I was never able to take my time and play the series, finally I was able to play it. Only problem was I never played a single serie so I needed to look the story up on the internet, so I did. After a lot of research I was finally ready to play.

Disgaea 5 Gameplay:

For the people who never played this game before. The game involves the player traveling across different Netherworlds in an attempt to bring the Overlords and heirs of each different world to join forces together to fight against Void Dark. The game will feature new systems not seen within prior titles in the Disgaea series. In addition, the number of characters displayable on-screen has increased to 100, compared to 10 characters on the earlier PlayStation 3 titles.

Yeahhh New features!

These features include the display of resistance and affiliation statistics when units on the battlefield are highlighted, and a revenge system that is triggered when party members are fallen. XCOM someone? The game also introduces a new type of special attack known as Maougis Certain characters are able to pair up in specific duos to unleash special moves known as fusion skills. New playable character classes include dark knights with melee weapons, maids with guns, and fairies with support magic, while the soldier, magician, priest, priestess and archer classes from earlier titles will be returning.

Development

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance was announced on September 1, 2014, at Tokyo Game Show. The awesome Nippon Ichi Software president Sohei Niikawa stated that the development team initially considered a multi-platform release including the PlayStation 3, however decided to create a game which could only be done on the PS4 platform. A trial version of the game will be available via download code included within the September 25, 2014 issue of Dengeki PlayStation.The game is produced by Sohei Niikawa, with the character designs by Takehito Harada and music composed by Tenpei Sato.

Enough theories! We need facts! Is it fun for everyone?

I bored you there huh well this game isn’t for everyone and everyone I mean people who can’t or never played tactical role-playing games however it is time to learn it because it’s inevitable. We used to see these games a lot on the Nintendo 3ds but now they are coming to the consoles and yes they are becoming popular.

The story

Plots again yes there are lots of these plots but it works in this game, the story is based on ,the title gives you the answer, yep it’s based on REVENGE. The evil demon emperor (Void Dark) destroys numerous Netherworlds after coming to power, But where a bad guy lingers there usually is a good guy not one but an whole army yay!! with the help of an army of over one million soldiers known as The Lost. Following.

The graphics

Disgaea 5 gives you a good feeling with its beautiful characteristics and an awesome soundtrack composed by Tenpei Sato. known as composing games like alien vs predator and play it pinball. I really liked the dialogue of this game they had some very funny conversations and you can spend a lot of time playing it because it has a wide variety of gameplay. Even after you clear the main campaign, you can keep playing and continue unlocking new squads and awesome characters and maps and unique episodes.There are also a lot of side quests to keep you busy. Talk to a particular character and he will reward you when you defeat enough of a certain enemy, or gather certain rare items, for example. Then there’s the “Character World,” which sounds like the Item World but actually plays more like Mario Party, complete with items you can use to get the drop on enemies while you try to avoid landing on spaces that will impose a penalty.

Unique features

There’s another new feature called Squads. As you progress through the campaign, you’ll eventually meet certain requirements and divide your characters into specialized groups. Doing so doesn’t mean you have to rely on a particular squad in battle, but each team member gains different perks. For example, members in one unit will gain experience points without battling, as long as their leader is out in the field and doing damage. Another can learn the ability to capture weakened enemies, which another squad can then interrogate back at base. From there, it’s possible to recruit a former enemy to serve as your ally.
