The least funny Disgaea, but arguably the best in terms of the actual gameplay – and it's a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch.
Disgaea 5 Complete is everything that Disgaea 5 was, including all the downloadable content, on a system that you can take with you whenever you go. It's the same game, but the Disgaea series has always been a more enjoyable experience in its portable iterations and that's no different here. If you own it on PS4, it's still worth a re-purchase here. If you don't, welcome to the world of Disgaea.
With that established, there's little doubt Complete is the definitive version of the game, with all of its DLC scenarios on Switch included and worth exploring. Handheld mode is what really seals the deal, in effect “improving” the game's visual presentation and exposing Disgaea 5, of all things, as far more pickup-and-play-friendly than anybody probably ever expected.
One of the best tactical RPG games comes to Nintendo Switch with more content, polished gameplay mechanics and amaizing graphics. Perfect for both experts and newcomers of this genre.

Disgaea 5 Complete is the best version of Disgaea 5 and a great strategy RPG that is well worth your time.
If this is your entry point, you've picked a good one.
Disgaea 5 Complete returns with devilish hijinks and the deepest tactical system in the series to date while throwing in all the DLC extras for free from the original PS4 version. The game can feel overwhelming for newcomers and requires some serious grinding to fully enjoy everything it has to offer. Tactical RPG lovers, however, will love its depth while the ability to play on the TV or on the go makes it arguably the best version of Disgaea 5 out there.
Despite its handy portable device, Disgaea 5 Complete reminds us how the series will not evolve through time. If you ever want to farm some endless levlling through what seems to be a pile of clich's of japanese animation, this might do the trick.

Disgaea 5 Complete is a tough game to judge. On the positive side it offers an extraordinary volume of content, its own quirky approach to storytelling and a complex set of systems that complement each other well. Unlike some other major strategy RPG IPs, however, it struggles to present its complexity in a cohesive way, with a user interface that groans under the weight of its goals. Fans of the game and series likely adore this hardcore approach, but some more familiar with strategy games that are more focused and precise in their execution may find it hard to fall in love with all of those layers of detail. There are so many terrific parts to the game, but they get somewhat jumbled together.For Disgaea fans this game is worth a purchase, especially as it includes all DLC from the original and plays beautifully on the go. For strategy RPG fans we still give it a hearty recommendation, but with the proviso that it's more demanding and tougher to master than many of its genre contemporaries. If you're up for the challenge and time investment, and can tolerate its zany characters and settings, then it's well worth adding to your Nintendo Switch collection.
Disgaea 5 Complete is a great role-playing game for the Nintendo Switch. JRPG fans have hundreds of potential hours of content to dig into here, all of which is brilliantly presented with imaginative, zany characters that seldom disappoint. And you can make your very own curry, who wouldn't love that?
Disgaea 5 Complete is a fantastic strategy RPG with plenty of deep systems to learn and an engrossing cast of characters that help drive the fairly simple narrative along. Its combat is by far its strongest element, and thankfully it's also the part of the game that receives the most attention.
Disgaea 5 Complete is an awesome addition to the Nintendo Switch line-up of games. Taking this time-intensive tactical RPG on the go with me was an enjoyably experience; I am not always at home and willing to spend 80 hours on my couch playing a game. The game's premise feels like a soap opera at times, but it adds to the enjoyment when acted out by these silly characters. My only word of advice is to bring your Switch charger with you, because you're going to need it.
The ultimate version of Disgaea 5 goes deeper than ever into strategic minutiae, standing out as a fantastic value in spite of its cringe-worthy humor.
It's the definitive version of one of the best Disgaea games that can now be played on the fly. A win-win Switchuation.
Your Trusty and Old Faithful Disgaea
Disgaea 5 Complete certainly appeals more to people who have never played the game over the fans that jumped into it first on PS4. What is great is that nothing is sacrificed on it's move to Nintendo's new hybrid system, so those fans who like the idea of playing the game again with a portable aspect will be happy with the transition.
Disgaea 5 is an enjoyable game on the Nintendo Switch and is great value for money as you could literally be playing this game after the 100 hour mark and more. There's a ton of side quests and lots of customisation options to help with your characters in order for them become the masters on the battlefield. The combat system works well and more importantly, the control system is almost flawless on the Nintendo Switch.
There's not enough new content to recommend a second buy for the ones that have already played it on PS4, but Disgaea 5 Complete remains the best option, right now, for all the Switch owners who love their strategy games.
