If your tastes aren’t yet accustomed to the complexity of tactical RPG titles, it’s unlikely Disgaea 1 Complete will take your fancy. In harnessing all the staple features of the genre and bringing an assortment of new elements to the table, it’s more of a game for tactical RPG veterans as opposed to curious newcomers that may find the game overwhelming and otherwise daunting.
It’s less remarkable now that anime is just a normal part of everyday geek culture now, but what you’re looking at here is history, from when being weird was in the middle of starting to be cool, and Persona was still a grungy PS1 game nobody had heard of. Disgaea 1 Complete is a celebration of that legacy, of the game that put NIS on the map. Disgaea is so familiar to me that I’m not blown away by this release in particular, but I’m glad it exists, so that someone new can.
Overall, this is a must play for any tactical RPG fan. It isn’t as polished gameplay wise compared to Disgaea 5 Complete but it is still a great game. You can never have too much Disgaea. Hopefully this does well enough so we see ports of the other games to PS4 and Switch in the future. If you’ve never played an entry in the franchise before, this is the best starting point even though 5 is a much better game.
