Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories is a famous RPG strategy game that was released in 2013. The game was created by Nippon Ichi Software, the same creator of La Pucelle: Tactics and Phantom Brave. Originally released for PS2 consoles, a PC-version was just released this year.
Disgaea 2 starts with the Overlord Zennon appearing in the land of Veldime, and cursing its entire human population with the idea of turning it into a nasty Netherworld. All of its inhabitants are now turning into demons and will remain that way if the curse is not broken.
Amidst this chaos, a young man named Adell stands up to fight the curse and turn his family back to normal. However, things don’t go smoothly when his mother accidentally summoned Zennon’s daughter, Rozelin. Now, aside from saving the entire Veldime, he must return Rozelin to Zennon and defeat him to break the curse.
The game is divided into thirteen chapters. Players will take control of Adell, the main protagonist. The story will start in Adell’s hometown known as Holt, which will also serve as a gateway to story maps, as well as side quests and the item world.
The gameplay is similar to its predecessor Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. The player takes controls of a party that will battle against enemies on a 3D isometric map. Players are allowed to select any item in the inventory to use it during the fight. Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories also offers over 200 characters to create the perfect party.
Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories is an awesome tactical RPG strategy game that offers an engaging plotline with humor and wit. It received favorable reviews from critics including GameSpot which described it as a fun strategy RPG game that will give you hours of quality entertainment. IGN, on the other hand, named it as the “Best PS2 Strategy Game” or 2006, describing it as a game which manages to provide the players an obscene level of depth and strategy.
Disgaea 2 was officially released for PS2 in January 2013, but it is now available on gaming PCs and laptop as of January 30, 2017. You can download it on Steam for $17.99.
