Disgaea 5 Complete
Top Critic Average
At the end of the day, despite being the definition of insanity, Disgaea is an absolute blast to play. Story and characters aside, the game itself is just fun. One of the best parts about Disgaea 5 is that you can ignore 90% of what the game allows you to mess with, but it’s still a fully featured SRPG at it’s core. Everything else is the icing on the cake with nothing that spoils it, but only adds on to it if you choose to go deep into it.
If you do decide to pick up Disgaea 5 Complete, be prepared to sink a major amount of time into it, as it takes dozens of hours to even scratch this densely-packed SRPG’s surface.
There are only a few RPGs on the Switch so far, but Disgaea 5 is nothing short of one of the best. If you’re at all a fan of JRPGs or tactics games, this is a must buy. Even if you had it on the PS4, its inclusion on the Switch and portable greatness make it one of the system’s must owns early in its life.
Disgaea 5 Complete is the first Disgaea game on a Nintendo console in years, and what a joy it is to play on the Switch.
When Nintendo announced the Switch, Disgaea was the last thing that I ever would have figured would be coming its way. They, being Nintendo, are surprising a few of us however with some of the - and hang with me here - mature content. Disgaea can often be seen as immature to some, but that is selling the brilliant dark humor that lies beneath short. Murder, death and subjugation at the hands of the one known as Void Dark is back and it runs just as brilliantly on Nintendo's new platform as it did on Sony's current one.
Disgaea 5 Complete marks the return of the series to Nintendo consoles, and it feels like it never left. If Sony doesn't produce handhelds going forward, it's nice to know that the franchise will always have a home on future Nintendo systems. With all of the DLC included for free and the complete package that was offered on the PS4, if you have yet to experience this game, now is the perfect time to jump in!
Disgaea 5 is an enormously ambitious game in terms of content, systems, and battle mechanics. With a lengthy campaign, scores of side quests, lots of customization options, and tons of optional content, it's a title that will keep strategy RPG fans coming back for more.
The Disgaea series may seem a little daunting at first glance to dive into, but the fact that it is a standalone story makes it well worth trying out. The game was already great on PS4, but being able to take the game on the go makes it even better. If tactical RPGs are a favorite of yours, Disgaea 5 Complete is a must pick up for any Nintendo Switch owner.
The Disgaea franchise is beloved for many reasons; the characters, humor, and unique mechanics make Disgaea 5 unlike any SPRG I have played. On the plus side, you can take it on the go Dood!
Full of charming characters, ridiculous humor, and exceptional gameplay that could last you an eternity, Disgaea 5 is not one to be missed.
