    "Who doesn't love a good JRPG? The only problem is that most of the best titles come out for consoles. If you're like me, then you want to be able to enjoy a well made JRPG from the comfort of your own computer. Disgaea allows you to live out this dream offering a great and quirky story, unique battle mechanics, and more spells than you can shake a stick at."

    "While searching for the best PC JRPG games, I ended buying Grandia 2 Anniversary Edition and what a waste of money. This game has hardly any story line and the graphics are sub-par at best. It's something I would expect from a game that would cost $5, not $20."

    "Disgaea 2 is a tactical roleplaying game from Japan for PC. It brings some old memories back to those who enjoyed the 16bit style RPG's on the original consoles. There is enough challenging stuff to keep you busy for many hours and its well worth the price."

    "In my opinion this game is an excellent example of breaking the standard jrpg molding. To try and pull away from the linear style of most jrpg, Child Of Light has a great story line, vivid and bright colors, and smooth flowing game play. As well as it's uniquely styled verse and rhyme dialogue."

    "I was disturbed by the message of the game, Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale. Games should be fun and fantastical, but the premise of this game was that the central character's father skipped out on a loan and she was now forced to earn the money for that loan. No enjoyment can be had based on a father's low moral premise."

    "I never thought I would love a phone game but this one is great. If you enjoyed the Final Fantasy series you will enjoy it on your phone too. They spend a lot of time working on this to stay true to the original and make it phone-friendly without losing too much functionality. It will end up taking quite a bit of storage space on your phone."

    "9th Dawn II is actually quite a good game, but there's just a few things about it that could be better. There are a number of persistent bugs that are still in the current version, and there are just some generally missed chances to make the game more friendly and intuitive in general. It could really be a smash hit if the developers took a little more time to refine it and fix some small things about it."

    "Tales of Berseria manages to make up for the shortcomings of its predecessor and chronological sequel, Tales of Zestiria. With an improved battle system, smarter AI for both enemies and allies, defined combat styles for each character, and a well-written cast, Berseria is a great redemption for Bandai-Namco."
