      Huge game, made for fans of the genre

      This is a MASSIVE jrpg. It's a complete collection of Disgaea 5. There's no problem getting your money's worth from this game. Reading other people's comments, its not uncommon to hear people sink 100s of hours into this game! I won't. This entire series is made specifically for fans of the modern jrpg genre. It's menu driven, deeper (not always apparent) game/combat systems, grinding is required, typical melodramatic story, and "cutesy". I think the developers did this completely on purpose to poke fun at the genre & it's fans as an in joke. (Level 1,000,000 level caps? Come on!) When you add in the honest challenge, which is never cheap, it can become overwhelming. I can get into (some) recent jrpgs and sink 40-60 hrs into them, but this is too much for me. I have a feeling that I would need to put 100 hrs into this one to get something out of it. I don't have that kind of time. Especially, when the game goes out of the way to highlight all modern jrpg stereotypes. On the flip side, while the story is commonplace for these types of games, it's very well written and I smile quite a bit. The characters cover all of the basic genre templates, but the writers gave them a bit more depth, even if they are just super stereotypes. The combat systems are super precise even if they take a lot of learning. Weapon systems involve dungeon grinding to evolve them, which is kind of cool if you have the time. Graphics are typically cute, but the game is nice to look at. Battles take place in a tactical grid format but many maps add extra rules to create a unique challenge. Honestly, this is a well made parody game. I get the joke, but I don't really enjoy it. I am not this game's target audience though. I wouldn't recommend Disgaea 5 to MY friends, but would recommend it to someone that enjoys modern, challenging jrps. Also, consider this a must buy if you're a fan of the series.

      A Japanese SRPG that is just right for the go.

      Based on the ongoing Japanese Simulation Role Playing Game genre (SRPG) or Tactical RPG, Disgaea 5 Complete Edition gives you hours of turn based strategy and a ton of Japanese styled comedy that you can play at home or take on the go. Set in the Netherworld, you play as a bunch of anime-styled demons attempting to defeat the demon emperor, Void Dark. Of course your characters range from the whole spectrum of anime archetypes - so be prepared for buxom beauties, pretty boys, cute monsters and outrageous attitudes all out for revenge! The gameplay is done in tactical turnbased battles where weapons, character types and positions on a 3d grid enviroment is the key to victory. There will be advantages and disadvantages based on the characters you choose as well as whether or not a character does Melee style or ranged attacks for example. You can also combine with other characters to do fusion attacks as well as have character special moves. There are a tons of allies to eventually choose from and you will be finding hours of content here. Since this is the complete edition, you get additionanl scenarios and characters not found in the original PS4 disc release. The music was fresh and the art style pretty appealing. The banter between the characters as well as the situations can be hilarious! If you've never played this series before and are not keen on Japanese anime trope comedy, I would suggest watching a few gameplay videos to see if the style meets your liking. Otherwise, if you crave great battle strategy gameplay with some beautiful characters and funny situations, this is a must - especially to play on the road.

      A great port and still solid after a year

      To fans of the strategy RPG genre, NISA, and the long-running Disgaea series, Disgaea 5 isn't exactly "new", but with the Complete version on Nintendo Switch, not only are you getting all DLC included in one awesome package, but D5 Complete has never felt more at home than on the Switch. Having played previous iterations on Vita and PSP, as well as Disgaea DS - the first and only time Disgaea had been on a Nintendo platform prior - the game has consistently drawn me back thanks to its awesome art style, memorable and humorous dialogue, and fun gameplay. For those of us waiting to get a Fire Emblem game on Switch - minus Warriors coming out later this year - Disgaea 5 scratches that itch so well, providing hours among hours of gameplay. It shines in portable mode, and is great to have with you on the go whenever you want to jump in quickly or binge for hours on it.

      Good but not great

      I can see why a lot of people really like this game and get sucked in for hundreds of hours. The story mode for me was about 40 hours long, and I got bored about 10 hours into the post-game. Someone else with more time to kill will enjoy it. Reviews that I read talked about this game being a grind. For the story mode, I never got stuck or had to level up before moving on. It was fun and entertaining. I just casually tried out different mechanics as they became available during the game. But the post-game is all about grinding to level up characters, skills, gear, items, etc. In this game you can make just about any crazy strategy work in this game, which is cool but that also means it's overall pretty easy. I was also disappointed that the terrain and movement didn't play a more important role in combat, like it does in Final Fantasy Tactics. This game is really more about optimizing things things to reach insane stats than it is about battle strategy or tactics.

      Grind then grind then grind

      Disgaea 5 is a game about the grind, breaking the rules of the game to grind more efficiently, then turn your efficient grinding into more grinding. But is that an issue? No the grind is absurd, but the reward for doing so feels better than most JRPG offerings. You unlock new skills which have animations that feel as powerful as they hit. Power, the feeling of being powerful is what Disgaea 5 is truly great at, and as a tactical, turn based, grid based JRPG. There are gameplay systems that simply make it easier to wipe the enemy in one turn. And for some reason for me it always feels good, tossing party members around to position them perfectly for the one turn kill. Also there are many waifus to be had, and Prinnies won't judge you, so you'll find solace here.

      Great JRPG, might break itself.

      Few franchises can get away with feeling this similar from version to version, but Disgaea is just that deep, requiring you to understand and exploit character stats, equipment attributes, and class abilities at a level most modern RPGs have abandoned in the name of accessibility. Disgaea 5’s many new and tweaked gameplay features hit way more often than they miss, and together with its distinctive brand of campy fun and some subtle but welcome visual improvements, they make this one of the better Disgaeas. But DLC characters break this game and make it way too easy.

      This game is just what I was looking for. I haven't played games in the tactical RPG space that this game is in, so I can recommend it as a good first dive. The game has a lot of customization available for every playstyle; very in-depth. The storyline of the game is great, it's over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek, yet serious. The characters have a surprising amount of depth for a video game and have humorous personalities. The game is not easy, which I appreciate. There are some challenging levels and close calls, but none of them have been frustrating. There is tons of playtime in this game, best value I've had from one of my purchases in a while.

      Great Turn-Based RPG

      This is a great game for turn-based strategy fans. However, it does take a while to adjust to if you've never played Disgaea before as the amount of detail in this game is astounding. Definitely not for the light of heart. Only complaint is that at times I feel like there's no goal that I'm aiming towards while leveling up my characters/items. The max is 9999 and I'm no where near that. In games like FE you have obvious exciting points to look forward to such as class changes. Still, overall a great game and well worth the price for amount of content.
