    As a Fan of the complete Disgaea Saga, i' m so sad to have to put this score to this game. But it is what it deserves.

    This is not a Remake, is just a ReSkin. It won't be a great deal if the price wasn't near like a new game (49€). There is a list of the problems: - No QoL improvements. Everything is like the first game in every aspect, even in the negative things. You can't Skip
    As a Fan of the complete Disgaea Saga, i' m so sad to have to put this score to this game. But it is what it deserves.

    This is not a Remake, is just a ReSkin. It won't be a great deal if the price wasn't near like a new game (49€).

    There is a list of the problems:
    - No QoL improvements. Everything is like the first game in every aspect, even in the negative things.
    You can't Skip animation skills by pushing a button.
    You can't make the geochanges go faster.
    You can't gain exp by healing.
    Item world still with imposible rooms.
    The innocents in item world problem from the first game comes back.
    No Machichange.
    Changing voices to characters.
    Continue in the same battle if you die.
    Canceling just the attack or the movement or moving until ending the action.
    Nothing comes with the game.

    - The Re-skin is REALLY lazy. They just use assets from the new games and put them on the characters. But they don't change the old ones from the story, so you have a mix of New sprites in battles and old sprites in the reading.

    - Some old monsters, where they didn't came in the other games are gone and changed by the new ones, just to use that skins. So, wingeds, Galactic demons... They are gone. They didn't even tried to make new skins for them. This adds to the lazyness.

    Yes, the story is good, but that's not an excuse as it's been there for more than 10 years.. If i just wanted to play Disgaea as before, i could just buy the old one on Steam for 14,99€ instead of 49,99€. Don't buy the game. It doesn't cost this price at this moment. It's just a cash grab.

    The game is good, however it is too lazy and not a remake, they brought no gameplay improvements.
    Also asking price to steep.

    I’m happy I got a chance to see this longrunning series’ early history with Disgaea 1 Complete, and I look forward to seeing where the games go next.

    The first Disgaea game is back in a great HD remake. All assets are rebuilt from zero and the game now features all the additions of the Nintendo DS and PSP versions. If you never played the first chapter of this funny jRPG series, this is the perfect chance to remedy, and it comes in a retail version too.

    I very much enjoyed Disgaea 1 Complete, but I don’t feel it’s for everybody. On the surface, there’s a great strategy game full of interesting and unique takes on the genre. But it’s also grind-heavy, with a learning curve that can be extremely daunting. If you have a lot of time to spare, this is easily one of the better strategy RPGs released on the Switch thus far.
