Disgaea 5 Alliance of Vengeance (PS4)

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Regarding an issue that seems to be bothering some: don't give the game a negative rating because it crashed on you-- it's not the game's fault it's the fault of PSN/NISA. Give them a few days to fix the issue before you condemn the game to a bad rating.

The best Disgaea game yet.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Bought this after playing the demo although I'd already played Other disgaea games before. Disgaea 5 (this game) is my favourite of the lot, it's definitely more story focused with a longer campaign which is a better thing. All the humour and great strategy gameplay is still there.

Another great Disgaea adventure.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: I am greatly enjoying this wonderful addition to the Disgaea franchise. It has everything there that makes it feels like a Disgaea game, but adds fresh new features, story and characters so it doesn't feel stale nor repetitive. If you like Disgaea, then you owe it to yourself to get this game.

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Review

★★★★ 4.4
Verdict: 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.
Pros: 
  • Deep customization
  • Strong RPG systems
  • Visual improvements
  • New classes
Cons: 
  • A little too familiar

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Review – PlayStation 4

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: It's time to go to hell…well actually just the Netherworlds dood with the release of Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance exclusively for the PlayStation 4. I've been playing the Disgaea series by developers Nippon Ichi Software for years now and this is easily one of my favorites in the series to date.
Pros: 
  • Positives Tons of stuff to do Memorable characters and jokes Deep combat mechanics
Cons: 
  • Negatives Not enough hours in the day May be overwhelmingly tough at certain points Story throws off pace of game at times

Almost too much of a good thing.

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is old enough by now to be considered an SRPG classic. Still the most famous game in Nippon Ichi Software's growing catalog, the title introduced players to the Netherworld and Celestia, two mystical realms populated by fallible angels and loveable demons.
Pros: 
  • A lengthy campaign and with lots of post-game content
  • Interesting new ways to tweak your army
  • Deep characters and plot
  • Item World is more extensive than ever
Cons: 
  • Doesn't look much different from the PS3 games
  • Added features make some older ones feel redundant

Pros:

It's Best Served Cold, Dood!

★★★★★
Verdict: Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance is the first Disgaea released for current-gen consoles, and the first I've spent any serious time with since Cursed Memories in 2006. To the untrained eye, it appears that very little has changed-the sprites are cleaner and a few systems are streamlined, but it's...
Pros: 
  • There is a ton of game here to enjoy..
Cons: 
  • ...but far too much is initially locked away

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Review

★★★★★
Verdict: Disgaea is one of those franchises with such a fiercely loyal fan-base that any change to the established formula is a genuine risk. As a result, it's part of a strange sub-group of games that might a
Pros: 
  • Great combat
  • Old school and engaging
  • Doesn't take itself seriously
Cons: 
  • Relies on grinding
  • Story and characters are a bit dull
  • Initially complex

Disgaea 5 Alliance of Vengeance (PS4)

★★★★ 4.2
Verdict: This is the Disgaea you know and love, but with a fresh coat of paint and enough new features to warrant another trip through the Netherworld, dood.
Pros: 
  • Addictive gameplay
  • loads of side activities
  • Red Magnus
  • jabroni
Cons: 
  • Simplistic AI
  • short songs loop endlessly
  • grinding is necessary

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance

★★★★ 4.3
Verdict: Disgaea's eccentric and complex brand of strategy has been around for more than a decade. Each successive sequel iterates on the core foundation, layering on even more mechanics for players to endlessly tinker with. Disgaea 5 follows suit in nearly the same way.

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance

★★★★★ 4.8
Verdict: I first encountered Disgaea shortly after the first one was released and my first impression was that it looked extremely complex and difficult to both learn and play. While it might appear that way on the surface, it's not very difficult to get the hang of, and once you do, you find that the...

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: 'Disgaea 5' is one of the best strategy RPGs I've played in years. The gameplay is fun and addicting, and the rest of the package offers more than enough incentive for me to play until the ending and beyond.

Disgaea 5: Alliance Of Vengeance review – no?joke

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: The least funny Disgaea yet, but arguably the best in terms of the actual gameplay – even if there is a lack of genuinely new ideas.
Pros: 
  • A huge depth of options in terms of the combat itself and the character and customisation, but all of it is introduced in a sensibly controlled manner
  • Some nice 2D animation
Cons: 
  • The script and characters are amongst the least interesting in the series, and Killia in particular is a real bore
  • A lack of major new ideas and a built-in reliance on level grinding

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: It's no real surprise that Nippon Ichi's Disgaea is hitting new-gen. Since its inception back in 2003 new chapters have been released at regular intervals. Although this new game sports a 5 in its title, those five entries have to be added to the direct continuation of the first Disgaea title (that...

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Review

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: It seems like a lifetime ago that Etna erupted onto the scene in the first Disgaea game. From that moment, massive number crunching became a way of life for many console gamers and there have been few games since that are so humorously twisted and crazy.

"Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance - A Tale of Revenge & Curry"

Verdict: Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance marks the arrival of Nippon Ichi Software's tactical RPG series on current gen systems. The franchise has been doing the rounds for over ten years, since first debuting on the PlayStation 2.
Pros: 
  • Funny characters
  • Charming 2D graphics
  • Hours of content
Cons: 
  • The isometric view makes surveying maps tough at times

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Finding a good tactical-RPG on a modern console is extremely rare. Sure, it happens every once in a while, but you have to wade through a lot of worthless crap in the interim. Fortunately, Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance is an extremely deep and fun-filled game, because the epitome of torture is...

Grinding for favor - Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance review

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: If you enjoy grinding numbers, goofy anime antics, and over-the-top style, Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance will give you hundreds of hours of replayability. If you don't like the idea of spending hours and hours replaying levels and building up characters, then you might want to look somewhere...
Pros: 
  • Solid core battle system
  • Hours and hours and hours of replayability
  • New graphics look gorgeous
  • sprites look amazing
Cons: 
  • Repetitive gameplay makes replaying old levels drag on
  • Camera angle issues tend to cause frustration
  • Little innovation in gameplay
