Anyway, they're waiting for your perusal on Impress Watch, and cover everything from combat to character classes to items in Nippon Ichi's DS Disgaea port. Go look at them now, and coo in admiration at how well they stack up to previous versions of the game.
There's also a lengthy feature up discussing numerous aspects of the title, but we couldn't locate much information for those who have already played the game on the PlayStation 2 or PSP.

Having played the original Disgaea on the PS2 (and most of the other nippon ichi US releases), if I could have one thing for the port it would be some character balance. Nippon Ichi has never been able to figure that one out, and disgaea is especially bad. Pretty much all the monster classes are useless right off the bat, and everyone except for Majins and Lahral are trash once you're talking bonus missions.

I've heard this complaint a lot but it's not a problem that I have ever had. But then, I DO like to level grind like nobody's business...

It's a pretty bad problem once you get up to the end game stuff. I remember being really sad in one of their later games, realizing that my carrot monster could never be good. (we'll, he sort of could be, but if the main character of the game was level 500, carrot monster would need to be level 1000 or so). Disgaea makes things particularly bad for monster classes by not letting them using normal weapons or get weapon based attacks, only monster specific ones.
This doesn't become a problem to play through the game normally, but it becomes more and more painfully obvious the more end game stuff you play through. Beating prinny bale with a ghost might be possible, but that is going to be one BIG time investment (and it already takes a lot of hours to do the same thing with Laharl!)
That being said, it's still a good game and I'll be picking it up. I would love to see some class tweaks though.

B...but D8 I'm still playing through the PS2 version D8. I think if I had portable Disgaea I'll explode ):.
I wonder if this version will have a save anytime feature. ):
