I recently got the game early and had fun every bit of the way. I don't want to go into depth of story due to the fact that not alot of people like spoilers. However here are some of the pros and cons of the game.

Pros:
-The best combat system to date.
-The boss battles are still the highlight of the game.
-Great Graphics for the PSP.
-Alot of replay value. 3 Full Campaigns and more enjoyable mini games. It's replay value is great for the buck.
-Good story as usual.
-SUPER FUN

Cons:
-Very very linear however if you're a kingdom hearts fan you're used to this and just interested in the battles.
-The camera is just as bad as the first game.
-The lock on command is very flawed.
-REALLY long load times

Overall it's a GREAT game. Each campaign will run you around 8-9 hours and you'll have tons of stuff to do in mini games, and finding all those reports(Which leads to a secret boss, just sayin).

However considering it has some of the same problems from the first game and its long load times will lower the score of the game by a bit, but it's still an overall great game. It's very fun and it's a great value for your money.

A must get for any kingdom hearts fans out there.

I just bought this game. I've only bought a few PSP games but this one ROCKS! I never really liked playing as Sora. Now you get 3 different characters to choose from. The game play is better, I thought, than that of the PS2. On the highest difficulty level I am having such a blast. It's funny because I'm 21 and this is my favorite game right now (over Madden 11 and Mafia on the PS3)
The story is great, and I like that on Very Hard - boss fights are a good challenge. This is probably the best game out there graphically for the PSP as well. Some new features but still a lot of mashing the X button and pressing Triangle every now and again. I'm really glad they didn't go to far in re-vamping the battle system.
The online features are great. If you have friends that have this game, make sure to try it out. I especially like that it Ad-Hocs. I have always liked how a character will show up on a level and I get super excited. Because it's somebody I recognize and they always manage to incorporate everybody from Disney to Final Fantasy characters very well.
In closing this game is a 10/10 MUST BUY!

This game was so much fun. the only thing i hate, is that is it sooo slow. I installed it, and it still took forever to load...in mid battle, you would charge up and sometimes itd take 10-15 seconds to resume the battle. Multiplayer was fun though! Me and my friend linked up every day and finally got to level 30 in arena mode (took a while, but fun!)
