This game doesn't get a 10 for being perfect, because what game is perfect? It gets a 10 because it does everything really well. The combat may feel clunky at first, but that's because you're fighting on two screens simultaneously. It's really intense. Once you get it down, you'll be switching out powers to find the right combination to dominate your enemies. The story catches you quickly with a lot of mystery; a LOT of mystery. It feeds you details bit by bit and by the time you get to a pivotal moment, things really start coming together, fast. The best part is, with every detail you learn, the more you want to keep playing and find out what's going to happen. TWEWY is completely original, like nothing I've ever played. The soundtrack and sounds of the game are all very fitting of the games style. Tons to do, lots of replay value. Enjoy!

The story starts off kind of lame but then starts to get interesting. The fighting engine is new and it's a great fighting system, well...unless your left handed, because you need to use both the stylus and the D-pad. The only reason why I give this game an 8 is because the story is predictable and the game is rather short, though there are three side stories, but that makes sense seeing how Chain of Memories did the same
If you have played Kingdom Hearts Chains of Melodies, do not rent this. If you have not... read on. This game starts of as a really cool concept with cool story telling styles. It dwindles into trash. After you notice the story lacks depth and you are sick of playing, you reach what appears to be the ending.... then you have to do it all over again. This is the point at which I placed it nicely back in my GameFly return envelope.
The makers of Kingdom Hearts should have stopped at Kingdom Hearts.
