|genre||turn-based strategy RPG
Disgaea 5 is another game from a series that I haven't played before like Valkyria Chronicles, but fill all the right checkboxes: it is turn-based, strategic and with heavy RPG elements. But going in I expected something in the lines of Fire Emblem - and Disgaea certainly is not that. It has a crazy over the top story, crazy moves in battle (turning an ally into a weapon or build towers out of your troops for instance), crazy boosts, crazy levelling (really, not only can you level up to multiple thousands, everything can be leveled, including weapons, your individual skills and even simple healing items), crazy everything. This game is a box filled with extreme crazyness - and it is a lot of fun on the ride.
