Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is spectacular. What Persona 4 Golden did for turn-based RPGs on the PS Vita; D4 does for SRPGs. Disgaea 2 and 3 were fun, but they lacked the irritable charm of the first Disgaea. D4 matches that first game's imagination and beyond. What was great on the PS3 is now a most own for the PS Vita. There has never been a better chance to hop aboard the Disgaea train. Get on it Dood!

Definitely one of the best Vita games right now. So many things to do means that being bored quickly won't happen. I'm still just on the tip of the iceberg here, and I've been playing for a few days now.

All the doubts I had about going back to an older Disgaea game was wiped away quickly as I delved deeper to experience new elements of this familiar but new title. This is most certainly the definitive version of Disgaea 4 and a worthy addition to any JRPG fan’s collection.

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

Thanks to the strongest story since the original Disgaea, a battle system that is easy to pick up but has plenty of complexity, and the crazy amount of fun extra activities that can extend playtime, Disgaea 4 is a must-have turn-based strategy RPG. This Vita version is highly recommended for its portability and extra content. Playing politics in the Netherworld is a dirty and violent game, and genre fans will enjoy every minute of it.

So, is Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited a game worth picking up? Absolutely. If you’re a Disgaea fan, you probably already own it on the PS3. I will say that even if you do, you might want to pick it up on the Vita, since it’s quite honestly the definitive way to play the game. Disgaea lends itself incredibly well to a handheld console, and with the additional content and polishing, I can’t recommend it enough.

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.

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.

'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.
