Disgaea 4 is charming and light-hearted with a fun battle system with depth that is less on the surface than some might be looking for. If you’ve never played it before, the price and content packed in make the Vita version the right choice for those looking to try it out.

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is the definitive version of arguably the best game in one of the best strategy RPG series around. There is just an absurd amount of content that even the most well versed SRPG fans will find themselves getting lost for hundreds of hours. The interface might be a bit daunting to those that don't already have their feet wet in the genre, but those that stick around to learn the ins and outs of the combat will find a thoroughly rewarding battle system and an absurd amount of quests and side-quests. There is just so much to do and so much that the game does well that not only is this one of the best SRPGs in years, it is one of the best games on the Vita, period. This comes with an unqualified recommendation to anyone that is looking for something to occupy their Vita, with the sole exception being individuals that have already completed the PS3 version of Disgaea 4 with all of its accompanying DLC. Everyone else should mark off a month or so of their gaming time to some SRPG goodness, and maybe alert their family to warn them why they may not be seeing them for a while, dood.

This is undoubtedly the finest handheld version of the Disgaea-verse that you could possibly wish to own. It gives you a scaled-down, but not pared-back port of one of the highlights of the series, and offers a near-endless amount of tactical RPG fun. You are always learning when you take on the mantle of fulfilling Valvatorez’s honourable promises, and vicariously helping him on his crusade against corruption and wrongdoing. While things haven’t moved on tremendously over the staggering eleven years of its existence, Disgaea is a thing of real beauty and depth, that arguably works at its best on the go.

The definitive version of Disgaea 4. If you haven't played it before, do so on Vita.

'Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited' may very well be one of the better Vita titles to make a western release. The game has a decent storyline and is simply fun to play, and the massive amount of postgame content is sure to keep players busy for hours on end.

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is a game that perfectly compliments the PS Vita. After playing games such as Persona 4 Golden and VLR, longer RPGs are just a much better experience on portable consoles. The same case is with Disgaea 4, for me even though I was playing through the game a second time, I never felt bored. I played the game whenever I wanted, sometimes while waiting for class in 10-20 minute sessions to quickly level up a character or for hours on the weekend. Trust me when I say this, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is one of the best games on the PS Vita and if you’re even remotely interested in RPGs you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Still the funniest and best-looking entry in the series, even if it’s the least innovative. And despite a few graphical flaws the PS Version is the definitive edition.

Addictive, deep, and just a little bit crazy, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is the perfect companion for someone looking for some on-the-move RPG greatness. Few people are ever going to see it all — a fact made truer by the often vague introduction of features — but what they do see is going to knock them over. Either that, or give them a very real addiction to sardines.

As ridiculously deep and deeply ridiculous as ever, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited makes the 2011 original feel like a brand new game and a superb value package.

Disgaea games never set out to be deep and meaningful narrative experiences, and it takes a real time commitment to start reaping the rewards of the combat system of any of the games in the series. But they are irresistable and ridiculous, stupid fun once they get going. Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is the kind of game that can ruin sleep patterns and kill productivity. But it's all worth it because it'll keep you chuckling right up to when that favourite Prinny hits level 9999, dood.
