Disgaea 2 PC for PC is the definitive edition of the second installment of the Disgaea series, which premiered on 2006 for PlayStation 2. After some time, the game received a tweaked release on PlayStation Portable, known as Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days. The PC edition described here offers full content from both releases, and includes new elements and a modified interface.

Plot

In Disgaea 2 PC, the player visits a fantasy world of Veldime. An evil lord – Zenon – has placed a curse on the world, changing its inhabitants into demonic beings, sundering the once beautiful world in total chaos. However, the spell hasn’t touched Adell – a courageous youngling who decides to challenge the powerful enemy, and bring peace and order back to the land.

Mechanics

The gameplay in Disgaea 2 PC is based on two elements. First element is exploration, and completing main and side tasks. These missions not only push the plot forward, but also allow gathering new weaponry and abilities. During the gameplay, our hero can recruit new party members – each of them represents one of two hundred available specializations. Additionally, the owned equipment can be upgraded to suit the current needs. The second element is the battle system – this time, the developers listened to the complaints and suggestions voiced by the community, and so the combat system received numerous fixes and improvements, and is much less clunky than the one present in the first installment. The encounters are turn-based, with each participant making his moves and attacks during their turn.

Aside from the content present in the base version of the game, Disgaea 2 PC contains elements that were included in the PlayStation Portable version. This means a completely new story episode, starring a new hero – Axel. The game also includes new neutral characters, abilities, and items. The seasoned players can try new gameplay modes – Dark World and Land of Carnage – offering extra challenge. A number of new heroes is also included, who haven’t been included in the previous western releases – Dark Eclair, Gig, and Miabel.

Technical Aspects

When it comes to visuals, Disgaea 2 PC for PC maintains the flavor of PlayStation 2 titles. The PC edition can boast a higher screen resolution (as a result, two-dimensional elements look a bit better), control system that supports keyboard and mouse, and improved interface.

Disgaea 2 review – tactical RPG with a touch of craziness

Review 01 February 2017 15:32

Demons are like politicians – easy to bribe and prone to fighting. What other lessons can we learn from the PC port of an immersive and funny tactical game, Disgaea 2?
