One gamer's take on Classic Dungeon (PSP): Disgaea + Shiren + Ys

Actually, said gamer's exact comment (expressed earlier today on NeoGAF) was: "Imagine your favorite parts of Disgaea combined with gameplay straight out of the latest Ys games combined with the best parts of Shiren. Yeah, that is a good combination."

The gamer goes on to explain (in this post) the inner-workings of the title, but it's a bit too confusing and convoluted to go into here. Honestly, I barely understood a word of it when I read it a few minutes ago, but what does it matter? The game seems to be a mash-up of Disgaea, Shiren and Ys--does anything more need to be said?

Well, other than "you'd better bring this to the States soon, NIS America (or Atlus USA or Xseed Games)," of course.

I've never played any of those games, so I'm VERY in the dark.

Would you recommend Ys book I & 2? I've looked at it a few times but never been able to commit.

RE: recommending Ys 1 & 2 -- actually, I think if you didn't play it (and enjoy it) back in the day, you probably wouldn't enjoy it today. It really benefits from an ample dose of nostalgia, IMO. Even then it can be lacking. I bought it when it came out on VC and played it for about 10 minutes before stopping--and I haven't been back since. The gameplay is just too archaic for me now.
