There are a number of other factors that go in to building your character, like the use of the body modifications that are available. By taking equipment that you are not using you can increase your base stats and equip specialty items that increase your capacity to carry items, or boost the effectiveness of the equipment you are currently wearing. You can also synthesize new equipment by combining articles to create new pieces of clothing, carrying over their abilities and giving you a deeper repertoire to fight with. The cool thing about the equipment is that everything you wear affects your character model. So if you happen across a drill arm, you better believe you're going to be piercing the heavens with your mighty drill. Or you can just go off the beaten path and play around in bonus dungeons that are based off a collection of Dengeki (Japanese Anime) magazines that will be named after some well known anime if you happen to follow those circles. Completing these dungeons can actually net you some equipment that will change your model to match that of characters from shows like ToraDora, Spice and Wolf, and more.


ZHP has a good looking aesthetic to it and if you're familiar with Disgaea then you know what this game is going to look like, and it translates well on the PSP screen. Musically this game delivers with more tunes by Tenpei Sato that never disappoint. Voice acting is solid as per usual with an English and Japanese voice track, personally I preferred listening to the game in Japanese just because it was amusing to hear them say “Super Baby.”

Zettai Hero Project: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman has quite a lot to offer the PSP owner on the go, with even death providing you with forward progress. Though it's a lot to take in the gameplay is quite enjoyable and perfect for short bursts of gaming, especially with the ability to plot out save points for yourself. The comedic and crass story is perfect for those who are in to stuff like the Adult Swin line-up on Cartoon Network. If you're into the Disgaea universe then this title will hold you over for quite a while, especially those who managed to blast through the last NIS title, Cladun: This is an RPG.

B+
With a goofy story, an epic battle, an insane super powered baby, and great gameplay, Zettai Hero Project: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman is a great addition to the NIS and PSP family.
