Prinny really captures the look and sound of the Disgaea universe. Levels are a mix of 3D environments and 2D sprites. Most of the game is viewed from a 2D perspective, though unleashing Prinny's aerial attack flips everything into a behind-the-back view. It doesn't do much for the gameplay, but it is a cool feature. Backgrounds are incredibly sharp and feature themes like a pagoda-dotted lava field, grassy fields and the ominous-sounding Death's Watchtower. Most of the enemies you'll come across come directly from the strategy games. Although not as crisp as the backgrounds, they look a little better than the sprites in the console games.
Background music is great, even if there's a bit of recycling going on. Most of the tracks are remixes of songs from the console games, giving Prinny a nice mix of old and new. The voice acting is decent, though you'll eventually get tired of hearing the Prinnies yell, "Dood!"
