Terra’s Review

Behold Our Kitty and Crossbones flag and despair. MEOW

The Good:
  • A story that’s more complex and in depth than “Go, characters! Wander the world on your way to defeating the big boss."
  • Humor that underlies the series and keeps even the darkest moments on the storyline from getting too serious and depressing.
  • All of the main characters have well-defined personalities and they all get development and their time to shine during the game.
  • Getting to see the roots of the battle system and slightly twisted sense of humor that the Disgaea series builds on and continues to fine tune.

The Bad:
  •   Dull level grinding without much choice or variety in maps and battles.
  •   Slightly too convenient pairing off of the main characters.
  •   Minimal healing items.

 The Ugly:

You don’t want to know what’s on the other side of that wall

The Lowdown: La Pucelle is a solid game with a storyline that moves briskly and characters that will keep players engaged and entertained.
