Vita in danger of falling into oblivion before reaching the year, because if this situation with the games will continue, many players will start to score it to hammer nails, crack nuts or simply to prop up the wobbly legs of chairs. But let’s put aside the negativity for a while.
A helping hand, drowning in the universal indifference of the Vita, stretched Disgaea: Absence of Detention – enhanced port of the first Disgaea, once released on the PS3. It is worth noting that this adaption was very successful and Disgaea can be a really worthy addition to the almost empty Treasury of good games for Vita.
It is known that a magnificent idyll of family life can easily be destroyed by some trifle. Wife gets mad and rolls her scandal, when the eyes of her husband involuntarily escorted skirts and slender legs walking down the street girls; husband banging his fist on the table and screams obscenities when the wife spends massive amounts of money on these “pretty earrings”, “gorgeous coat” or when my son striking similarity with the neighbor. Children get mad when the nurse with a folder off the Internet, hide the console and make the study. At last, by the way, and built the storyline of the Absence of Detention, that’s just the main character, Mao, the son of the Supreme ruler of the Evil Academy, do not hide the console it was completely destroyed. Of course, I did his father.
It is easy to understand attack uncontrollable anger of a man whose sense of life was gone, along with conservation and hundreds of achievements. So, in retaliation for his father for the wasted childhood, Mao decides to find the hero that overthrew the dad with his office. But evil plan spoiled boys diligently prevents Raspberyl 9(Raspberyl), smart, straight-a student and, concurrently, the sworn enemy of Mao.
It is not surprising the Comedy and absurdity of the plot Absence of Detention, because the game series Disgaea was always cheerful and unobtrusive, and this was expressed not only in the sparkling sense of humor writers. The names of game objects and their descriptions were drawn up rather to set the mood, rather than carrying some kind of practical use. But, at the same time, the game turns into a performance of a famous comedian of well-known transfer: the joke is not far-fetched, the dialogue look natural and not willfully and, most importantly, they time over so no time to get bored.
Like its predecessor, Absence of Detention is very convenient utilizes a strategic formula of fighting. Battles take place on fields is divided into sections, step by step. Your goal – to blow the whistle on the horns of the opposing team before they will tell you. The damage done depends not only on the applied skills but also the location of the fighter on the playing field. At the end of the fight you are awarded the coin or gear, depending on how well you did.
It should be noted that the position of the soldier on the field of play is an important part, and it affects not only the damage done. So, by placing some of the characters closer to each other, you can use the special combo attacks are much more effective than conventional. In addition, characters can throw objects and each other to reach those opponents who are out of reach.
The game features a complex and at times even difficult strategic model, which offers a lot of effective tactics and a wide scope for their application. It can take days or even weeks to have a good master it, but even then, you can find an unexpected solution to a banal situation.
Oddly enough, but the game involves control through the touch capabilities of the console. It is intuitive, and it quite quickly, but fans have not forgotten, leaving the option traditional method of interaction with the game world.
Unfortunately, the input method does not influence the convenience of the camera, which flatly refuses to demonstrate excellent angles. Especially sharply this problem reminds of itself on more complex maps, forcing the player long to rotate the camera to cover all the battlefield.
With regard to technical performance, Absence of Detention looks very good. True, deep and vibrant colors are well-detailed environments, rather sharply contrasted with the models of the characters themselves, which obviously would not hurt more gloss.
Under the comical artwork and a hilarious story lies a complex and comprehensive combat system. Disgaea: Absence of Detention is not very friendly to newcomers who are not familiar with the series, but if they still want to know what can cause deleted save, they get stuck in the game for a long time.
