just look at my reviewer name, this is the 2nd best game i've ever played. once again, stuffed with disney along with Square Characters, we once again see Sora on his journey to find his friends. this story is much deeper and darker, enthrawling me to play it multiple times. the gameplay, improved and much quicker, along with drive forms, making sora much more powerful. so much has been added that you cannot miss this game. if you like disney or square, or have never even heard of them, this shouldn't stop you from picking this up.

I have to say that I am not the greatest fan of RPG's, but KH2 absolutley blew me away. It is an excellent all around game. I liked it better than Final Fantasy X! I'll break the game down.

Story: 10 - Great as always! Disney and Final Fantasy mixed continues to shine.

Gameplay: 9 - The first Kingdom Hearts seemed a little chunky in the movements. In this game, Sora's blasting combos fluently.

Graphics: 9 - Nice visuals. Not to far off from the first game. Nothing to gape at, just a solid picture. Cut-scenes own.

Music: 8 - The music will make you feel like the world your in.

Overall: 9 - KH2 is an awesome game. Definitely put it at the top of your Game-Q!!! Or buy it, if you don't have Gamefly, but if you don't, get it.

Where to begin... Kingdom Hearts was an original creation all on it's own, nothing like it had ever been seen before. Disney and Square? Together? That was something I never even saw coming. I must say though, it blew my mind in more ways than one. Now the sequel is here, so let me tell you a little about why I think this an amazing game. When you turn the game on, you are brought to the menu. Before starting a new game, wait a minute or so and you will be treated to a musical opening, featuring the instrumental version of "Sanctuary", the game's theme song, much like "Simple&Clean" was for the original. Then boot this fantastic game up! After the opening cinema is through (Featuring the song "Sanctuary"), you will find yourself in control of the our new hero "Roxas". He finds himself having strange dreams and also stange thoughts. Maybe there is a reason behind this... I leave that for you to think over. Roxas also seems to be having trouble with the local bully "Seifer" of Final Fantasy Eight, but that just serves as a little insight into his everyday life. After some few odd events unfold (I can't spoil anything for you) you find yourself in control of "Sora" once more (Suprise!). There is also the inclusion of the "Drive" system, allowing Sora to fuse with one or both of his team-mates to create a new, upgraded Sora, of which there are four forms to choose from. There is also the new "Action Trigger", pressing "Triangle" at the right moment results in Sora doing something small (Avoiding an attack), or something big (Running up the side of a building!). All resulting in a better game. Sora will also visit all the old worlds of Disney, from the previous game, and he will also visit new worlds. Instead of using Disney villains like last time, they now have Orginazation XII, characters that are 100% Final Fantasy villains! Original Final Fantasy'ish villains.

Hope that helps a little! Do yourself a favor and grab this game, you won't regret it!
