Here I am with the review of another Disgaea game, this time a DS port of the first (PS2) disgaea game, Hour of Darkness.
+ Gameplay. You've got the basic SRPG mechanics, mix them up with some wacky stuff and make it hardcore. Nice...
Some examples include exploding pinguins, Gods inside your items, judged you'll simply have to "pursuade" if they don't agree with you,...
+ Graphics. I normally don't pay a lot of attention to these but they are real good, actually! It says something that the PS2 was known for it's graphics and this game pulls them off brilliantly...
+ Story. Let's just say there's a reason you find all these fanboys/girld out there, pining away for Etna/Laharl. While never too long, the dialogue is entertaining and witty.
+ Extras. Etna mode, Secret characters, Etna's hidden room in the castle,...
+ It's on the DS. The DS is a handheld/portable gaming console. Figure it out yourselves :D
- No tower fighting D: Lifting and throwing is still implemented but the whole tower doesn't attack anymore.

If you're still not convinced this game is awesome, look at it's commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTaEf9OMeZY
It's a bit of a dull comercial but it does show guite a lot of the gameplay mechanics and that's always nice :D
