"Cannot stop playing this"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a great RPG, the ability to convert enemies into your party makes a great addition to the complexities of this game. The thing I enjoy about RPG's is the process of getting better equipement and leveling up characters. In this RPG there is more than enough character levelling depth to keep you going. Not only that, but you can level weapons and then combine them to keep people like myself happy for days. Tactics in the context of this game means turn based warfare where using height and positioning as well as chaining attacks gives you an advantage.

Description

La Pucelle: Tactics is a tale of betrayal and double cross, monsters in human form and humans in monster form, set in an alternate medieval Europe. The unlikely hero is a smart mouthed and undisciplined sixteen year old who just passed her exorcism exams and her comrades in La Pucelle, a demon hunting squad.

"La Pucelle is a game that you won't be able to stop playing once you start" says Sohei Niikawa, Managing Director of Nippon Ichi Software. "If you are a fan of Disgaea, you don't want to miss La Pucelle." Mika Hayashi, Mastiff's Big Woof, Japan, and producer for La Pucelle: Tactics adds: "Instant, continuous level-ups, items you can combine and enemies willing to come to your side, together with a heavily tactical battle system and heartrending story make this a great game."

Many American gamers became familiar with talented developer Nippon Ichi in late summer 2003 when their spectacular game, Disgaea, shipped for the PlayStation 2. Disgaea captivated consumers and critics alike and recently won a number of "2003 Best of" awards including:
