The Netherworld - a place darker than a pitch-black cave, located deeper than the depth of the seas. It is a cursed land where evil reigns and fould beings dwell. Nobody knows its whereabouts, but everybody fears its existence...

The story takes place two years after the death of King Krichevskoy, the ruler of the Netherworld. His son Laharl slept for two full years, unaware of this father's death, while demons fought for supremacy over the Netherworld. With the help of his subordinate Etna and her underlings, the egocentric, megalomaniac Prince Laharl fights his way to become the next king.

Disgaea is now on the go! Enjoy your favorite miscreants on your ride to school, work, home, or wherever. Challenge your friends through the exclusive multiplayer mode, and prove beyond a doubt just who deserves to rule the Netherworld.

 -1 star if you've played the PS2 versions before....

Disagea: Afternoon of Darkness is almost a direct port of the PS2 game Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. On the PS2 there has also been a sequel, Disgaea 2.
If you haven't played either of these games I strongly urge you to give this game a shot, it is quite probably the best game on the PSP at the moment.

If you've played the other versions keep on reading and I'll explain why this perhaps isn't a necessary purchase. First I've listed the few GOOD additions in the PSP version of Disgaea: -
- Additional ETNA mode - not as long as the original story
- A couple of extra bosses
- Attack animations turn off (this is the biggest plus)
- New way to get some of the better items...
- Its portable!
However, if you spent over 100 hours on the original game there are a few things you should know.
Some things I've noticed while playing this version: -
- Crashing while trying to access the shop (TWICE)
- Crashing while trying to access the hospital (ONCE)
- Crashing while trying to raise weapon mastery by countering with own players (EVERY TIME with high enough counters)
- Some of the items (a particular pair of glasses and staff that I've noticed so far) have bugged specialists on them. I'm talking well into the 10k level unsubdued. This is a bit of a cheat considering the amount of time purists have wasted farming on the PS2 version!

Finally if you've conquered the PS2 sequel then, like me, you'll notice that every aspect of this game, as you would expect compared to a sequel, is inferior. The difference is so vast that item runs in the this Disgaea seem a little dull in comparison. Considering this is where you'll spend most of your Disgaea life this is a major downer.
Saying that, I've already hit 4 figure levelled characters and am still playing.... but why?
Maybe its because my PS2 has broken.. maybe because its generally so easy to pick up and play any PSP game... Maybe its because of the shortcuts now available with the bugged items will make you turn to item running quicker... Or maybe.. just maybe its because, depsite its flaws, this is still by far the most rewarding and addictive game available on the PSP......... Dood........

 Superb!

I used to have this game on the PS2 & loved it then. Now it's been brought to the PSP it's loads more convenient as battles can go on fo quite a while. The graphics are great & far outdo the functional appearance of FF Tactics. The style & humour are unsurpassed & the story is witty, bizarre & very entertaining. Battle wise the combat system is relatively straightforward & there are plenty of tutorial options to ease you into it. There is also an enormous amount of depth because you can actually enter the hundreds of different weapons, items & armour & fight the monsters within to power them up even further. You can spend an unlimited amount of time fighting these enjoyable battles without even tackling the main game. The main game is well worth working through though as the story is superb, the characters are colourful & well realised & there really is an incredible amount of depth to the whole thing. The transition from PS2 - PSP is flawless & there is even an alternate story node to unlock too. I cannot rate this game high enough & am going to be playing it for a very, very long time indeed. Buy it now!

 A Must Have!

If you're an RPG fan, then this title is for you. I demand you buy it!

Upon entering the world of Disgaea you will find yourself drawn in by the humour, fantastic characters and brilliant Gameplay. As with the authors of the other reviews before mine, I am an owner of both Disgaea 1 and 2 on the PS2 but if you haven't played the PS2 versions you should still invest in a copy of this game. The fact it is now portable makes it even better! I can play at work, when I commute and even at boring family gatherings.

Upon completion this game has a feature that allows you to play through with your same characters, levels and items (So you don't have to start all over again).

Quite possibly my favourite PSP title to date. This is a game for people who don't have time to spend many hours in their sitting room/bedroom, but still want the submersive storyline and great gameplay that will make you laugh. 5/5

 One of the best PSP Games in my opinion

Disgaea was introduced to me on the PS2 by a friend and since i played it on there i have been playing it since. The PSP version isn't much different from the PS2 version so dont buy this if your expecting it to be a different story to the PS2 version. It has the same characters from the Netherworld, Laharl and Etna and Flonne are all in it. What makes this game brilliant is the humor in the game. They even made the tutorial funny and is worth going through it. There are many features in the game such as an Assembly where you go to court to raise or decrease the price of items in shops which will be accepted or rejected. Even if it is rejected you can fight for it. This just makes the game so much fun to play. This is a Strategy RPG just like Final Fantasy Tactics. Even if you are used to Final Fantasy games make this your first Strategy RPG to play. It's easy it's fun it's humorous and you will be playing for a very long time.
