Disgaea 5 is one of the best Tactical RPGs which has been ever made. This game, like its predecessors, offers a very good story with humorous elements. It also has a very deep combat mechanics and Item upgrade system which makes it a very good choice in this genre. However, like previous installments in the franchise, it is still a very complex game that may frighten newcomers. If you’re a fan of the series, then this is a must-buy, but even if you’re not familiar with the series, Disgaea 5 Complete is the best option to start playing this great franchise.

This is the most recent and largest Disgaea game released. This game takes SRPG to its limit and produces an amazing experience. There is a ton of content and players can easily hit one hundred hours played.

Disgaea 5 Complete is the type of game that can easily provide hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of playtime, so there’s no reason to rush it. There is a near infinite amount of freedom in customization and gameplay tweaks that should satisfy RPG fans of any caliber. While I still prefer the thematical grittiness that Final Fantasy Tactics offers, there is simply no comparison to Disgaea 5 from a mechanics perspective. Seriously, if you find yourself enjoying the first few hours of the game, don’t be surprised when those single digit playtimes roll into double and triple digits before you know it.

Overall, Disgaea 5 provides many hours of entertainment and a great on-the-go experience. If you like JRPG's and want a game that will last a while, I would recommend Disgaea 5. The great gameplay, plot, and character development will bring you great enjoyment for a long time.

Disgaea 5 Complete keeps all the fun and charm of the series while making it somewhat easier for newcomers to jump in, which is never a bad thing to do. Just try and take the time to learn the fundamentals. If you already have the game and all of the DLC for PS4 then I would question whether you should jump in again purely for the convenience of portability, but that is a question you have to ask yourself. I genuinely hope that NIS bring more Disgaea games over as I feel the series can find a new home on the Nintendo Switch, it is absolutely perfect for this system.

Disgaea 5: Complete was like finding a hidden gem for me personally and even if you’re not normally a fan of tactical RPG’s, I highly recommend that you give it a try. Beautifully simple yet complex over time, Complete is a game worth owning.

It's not a vastly different game but I certainly didn't expect it to be, nor did I want it to be. Disgaea 5: Complete is the pick up and go kind of experience I live for in strategy gaming and I couldnt be happier to have it on Switch now.

If you are looking for a massive SRPG for the Nintendo Switch, then you have to pick up Disgaea 5 Complete. NIS America is definitely going all in with Nintendo's latest console, and they have more games for it in 2017 and beyond, and I very much look forward to playing them.

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.
