Hello, i have bought the game and it was 50 bucks, I know it was worth it and it was. The graphics are amazing. And also the story line is long so its more funner and awsomer'er. Also the celeberty voices were greatly done. This is my buy or die!
Sine the release of Kingdom Hearts, I have anxiously been waiting its PS2 sequel, not to be confused with Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. While the battle system has improved, so far (and I am half way through the game now) the game is fairly linear.
The story is unbelievable as usual. If you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed.
Many critics have claimed that its all button mashing. Honestly, what action game isn't? Kingdom Hearts 2 improves this several different features, the reaction button, triangle, during battles produces different moves depending on the enemy, similar to God of War boss battles. There is also the drive command where Sora can fuse with Donald and Goofy and wield two keyblades! Fighting with two keyblades is quite fun. The other is the limit command. When you are partnered with another Disney character, such as Captain Jack Sparrow, you can pull a double team move on the enemy.
My only complaint is that while Kingdom Hearts was wide open to you could access new areas as more abilities were acquired, so far, Kingdom Hearts 2 is extremely linear in that if you have to go to a certain area you are not able to roam around to other sections of the town. Not that you need to as the worlds so far are fairly short, but the worlds do not have the free roaming aspect that the first version did. It is not terrible as the story pulls you in further and further, but its noticeably absent.
Overall, this is a great game. Kids and adults alike will fall in love with all characters and be transfixed.
