There are the trademark Disgaea hooks that'll keep you deeply engaged, but they're undermined by a lifeless cast, bland story, and some awkward control design decisions that you'll want to get away from immediately. It's a game with a huge leap forward and quite a few backward steps that add up through the experience. Absence of Detention surely won't be your most talked about Vita game, but it will keep strategy fans on their toes.

When it comes to strategy titles, few approach the sheer level of combat depth and offbeat storytelling prowess of Disgaea 3. Even with the handful of minor faults you'll encounter throughout the experience, there's still an enormous amount of challenge and fun to be had. While certainly not terribly friendly to newcomers, seasoned fans will find a heaping helping of engaging strategy gameplay to sink their teeth into and an adventure that offers up countless hours of play to those willing to explore all it has to offer.

It may lack a few key features in a portable release, but there is no denying the quality of Disgaea 3’s port or its limitless amount of extras. Fans will have no excuse to skip class on this one, while curious newcomers looking for a good entry point should consider enrolling on this strategy-based semester.
