The Disgaea series is well known (well, really more like infamous) for leading to long tracks of time lost to delving into rabbit hole within rabbit hole of chasing gear and stats, and as far as that goes Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness is completely faithful to reputation. The problem is that it feels largely like everyone involved is just going through the motions, from the developers to the characters themselves. True, standing issues with the interface have been addressed and the addition of mounting monster characters adds interesting new strategy possibilities, but the story – touted for its cleverness and self-aware humor – now exists as little more than a contrivance for the above system updates, previously colorful characters coming off as little more than cardboard cutouts. It all really comes down to a matter of what matters more to you: quality-of-life updates or entertaining characters and events ushering you through the single-player game. If you fall within the former, this game has your name written all over it. If the latter, you’re better off sticking with previous iterations.
