Anyway, in extension of that (while going back to 5), the important part to consider is Story and Character Development. Stuff gets more serious. You mention that you prefer the characters of 4, but it only took a couple of cutscenes of 5 to get fed up with the story and skip it all. The cast beats them up. End game and all? Today Disgaea 5 releases on Nintendo Switch along with all the DLC as Disgaea 5 Complete. Sometimes not. Am I wrong in assuming that 4 is more about using whack personalities and putting them in different situations, while 5 is more like a traditional JRPG story in that the characters start out cliché, but show a lot more depth over time? If you want IMO the best character ensemble in the series, go D4. The complete+ edition includes all the DLC, & the graphics & audio is enhanced too. I went back to it recently and I'd forgotten (for one thing) how much better the menu/list management was, even when compared to 4C+. Good to hear Disgaea 5 has more humor than meets the eye!

Disgaea 4 seems to have a lot more diverse cast of characters (The girl penguin delinquent, LeLouchian vampire MC etc.) There are better jRPGs out there story-wise. Would you suggest to play trough the story of 4, ignore the end game grind/post-game and then play trough Disgaea 5? Beside normal attacks, special skills are another way to deal damage in Disgaea 5. I'm gonna mull on which one to get. In terms of humor and seriousness I tend to agree too; Disgaea 5 has trouble balancing out the two and tends to dive into one pool or the other while the previous games mix it better. Great to hear that every installment gets better! (Typical shounen story…but with curry) It looks like it lacks the quality of humor the rest of the series has. I would say yes, Disgaea 4 is pretty far ahead of 5 in terms of characters. In any case, they are both amazing games and if you have the time to devote, definitely play both of them. It depends on what ur looking for. Am I wrong in thinking this? Dec 24, 2020 #44 It's just unbelievably dumb to have a PS4/5 version at all when you're not going to release it in the West. In some ways, 5's cast was treated a bit tooo seriously in my opinion. I’ve never played a Disgaea game before, but I’m already loving the humor and non-serious tone the series seems to have. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. From what I've gathered, 5 apparently has a better post game, but 4 has better characters in story? The antagonist and their lackies are introduced. I will be recording a complete playthrough of this game, and this is the intro. One shot last boss with your level 500 hero. If you feel relatively familiar with the series still then get 4. Filled with more over-the-top action and hilarious writing than ever before, Disgaea 5's damage numbers are surely headed for the record books. woohoo! I'd say in some respect the story is more "anime", with mysterious pasts and whatevs, but the game still doesn't take itself seriously and there are lots of silly moments etc. I honestly found them both pretty similar. That was one of the reasons why I couldn't stand playing through the story in D5. Product information ASIN B00RUZPKYY Release date October 6, 2015 Customer Reviews: 4.6 out of 5 stars 193 ratings. Let's Play Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Part 67 - Sinful Fortress, … But that's the only difference I know.thanks! As someone new to the series, I loved the hell out of 5 and logged way too many hours. I skipped pretty much every single cutscene in D5 after the first couple stages. Nippon Ichi is a Japanese video game developer and publisher. Disgaea 1 and Disgaea 4 are the two best entries in the series imo. Oct 27, 2017 15,598. If you don't like the Story, why bother to keep playing the Game? And D4 is not too far away from D5 mechanics wise. From what I've gathered, 5 apparently has a better post game, but 4 has better characters in story? If you only want to pick one, then D5 is the way to go. It's kind of like saying that Disgaea 4's story is politics...but with sardines. I think the way 5 plays is just so much better. Or any comparison between the two that would help me decide? A sub-reddit dedicated to the video game and anime series Makai Senki Disgaea, Phantom Brave, and Makai Kingdom universes. I've played all the games and of those two, D5 for gameplay, D4 for story.

Filled with more over-the-top action and hilarious writing than ever before, Disgaea 5… Mugen Keitai Disgaea; Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? I haven't gotten far into 4, but I'm missing a lot of the features from 5 and the graphics of 5 is leagues ahead of 4. I also thought that some of the quality of life changes in 5 made it into 4. Disgaea 4 primarily follows the story of Valvatorez, a sardine-obsessed vampire who finds himself working a shoddy netherworld job as a Prinny instructor following his renouncement of drinking blood. We're introduced to our hero, who wants nothing to do with being a hero. Wow, thanks for the opinions everyone! Even tho D4C has some quality of life changes - D5 is still leagues ahead when it comes to menus, general look and feel, etc. But it's up to you. Love them on ps3, and so glad they have continued the series. 3 is my Least played but I prefer it to 4 or 1. Thanks for the reply FZeroRacer! I also didn’t think the story was better like others say. Red magnus destroys my will to play the damn game. Warriors wear light gear to enhance mobility, and they have the ability to harden their bodies. 5 has the worst story and characters with the best quality of life updates. :P So at least it's super-friendly to your micro SD card (or internal) space. Training Mt. I read somewhere that the curry was the focus of a entire chapter, so that seemed odd in a game that seems to have the most serious Disgaea story. Content wise, I think Disgaea 5 took a major step back. Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great series Loved these gsmes on ps2. He is not just good with Staves, he is also good with Spears as well. I've mentioned it in a few other comments, but basically I would say 5 far and away has the better fun factor compared to 4. 5 is just okay. Disgaea Infinite; Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness; Prinny 1•2: Exploded and Reloaded; Lore. Disgaea 5 is the one where preorders for the Switch version outsold the sales of the PS4 version up until that point. But that's what I love about the games. I don't find the characters in D5 to be bad at all, and the dynamic between them as well as the little side convos you can have in the pocket netherworld add a lot of personality and fun banter. In this case, it's basically how their Personality goes vs how the Characters appear like in 5. Disgaea 5 Alliance of Vengeance is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 35.
