Disgaea has always been super popular amongst many fans. This series has multiple video games, an animated series, and a ton of merchandise. The characters are definitely on the cute side as well.
Disgaea DS is a remake of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness for the Playstation 2. Disgaea is a tactical roleplay game. The best way I can describe "a tactical RPG" is that battles during the gameplay takes place on a grided square map. The players controls multiple characters that step on the grided squares and take their turn moving. Human characters and monsters are both controlled; humans can throw objects that can block enemies from intruding or even help escape faster. Catching enemies is another way of picking up and throwing objects around.
The storyline is very interesting and cute. And the best thing about the Nintendo DS version of Disgaea is that it's very cheap. I was shocked when I found that out. (And it made me okay with the fact that my boyfriend purchased it in the first plaec when he should be saving up for other things.) The DS version has special features that weren't in the original Hour of Darkness and cameo characters that appear.
Not sure why this one is rated so low. The only disadvantages of the DS version are crappy resolution and loss of some voice acting and vocal tracks. Fantastic game and it's lots of fun to play on the DS.
