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.

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 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.

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.
