REVIEW: Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless on Playstation 5

Review by Jon Donnis
Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless, the latest installment in the renowned Disgaea series, continues the franchise's tradition of tactical role-playing gameplay. Following the demon warrior Fuji and his companion Pirilika in their journey through the netherworld of Hinomoto, the game introduces new mechanics like "Jumbability" to spice up the tactical battles. With competitive multiplayer making its debut in the series, it's a fresh venture into familiar territory.

On the positive side, Disgaea 7 offers a smoother gameplay experience compared to its predecessor, Disgaea 6, making it a notable evolution for the series. The storyline remains engaging and is a strong point for the game, keeping players invested in the demonic world of Hinomoto.

However, where the game falters is in the graphics and animations. The overall visual presentation lacks the charm seen in previous entries. Character designs appear lackluster and somewhat cheap, with animations falling short of the engaging and varied ones witnessed in Disgaea 5. This aspect disappoints, especially considering the high standards set by the franchise.

As players join Fuji and dive into the demonic realm of Hinomoto, they'll find a vast array of netherworlds, each with its own unique demons and beliefs. The introduction of new features like Jumbification and Hell Mode adds a layer of excitement to the battles, elevating the strategic depth of the game. The inclusion of an improved auto-battle system and online ranked battles further enhances the gameplay experience, catering to a competitive spirit.

With a diverse selection of over 40 character classes, players can tailor their team to adapt to the dynamic challenges of the battlefield. Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless truly pushes the boundaries of the SRPG genre, offering a devilishly engaging adventure.

In conclusion, Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless is a mixed experience. While it maintains the essence of the beloved Disgaea series with an enticing story and improved gameplay, it falls short in the visual department. The uninspiring graphics and subpar animations ultimately hinder the game's overall appeal. With a score of 6 out of 10, Disgaea 7 is worth exploring for die-hard fans of the series but might leave others yearning for the artistic and visual charm found in earlier iterations.
