I've recently finished my second playthrough on this game. I'm much more of a KH1 fan but this game does have its charms. Magnet is kind of neat and I like a few of the worlds (TWTNW is best, Beast's Castle has some good infinite-loop spots for summons'.) Overall I find the gameplay less fun than KH1 and Triangle overused.
But, probably the best moment in both games is when Maleficent takes over the castle. She's a tough, haughty person, fit only to rule. She isn't good at anything else, but she sure is good at that. And so the representative of the Darkness helps the forces of Light. I flat out loved it.
What do you love about this game? Any moments, or fights, or worlds, that you think are great?
@ Palaguin I agree halfway in that i think some new Halloween/Dark based world would be nice. Favorite part is a 3 way tie between the battle against the 1000 heartless, the Sephiroth battle, and the final battle, specifically the part where Sora is cutting through all the sky scrapers.
I honestly prefer the feel of KH1. The controls just felt...tighter in KH2, which sounds like a good thing, but just felt awkward to me. I found Space Paranoids to be a bit tedious and too novel, like it was simply trying to be innovative instead of providing a quality experience. However, the Timeless River was one of my favorite worlds in all of KH. My favorite part of the game was the battle with the 1000 Heartless. It was just so epic.
Goofy modeling for Rikku. Paine's deadpan, "We come in peace." Tifa's entrance, beating up evil office walls. And...
"What," Cloud said, "you're fighting too?"
Always makes me smile.
Oh, yes, Riku and the King in the wrapup FMV. Definitely more poignant after I'd played ReCOM. --- Guides and other contributions: http://www.esque.com/slr/gamefaqs/ FFX, FFXII, KH, KH Re:CoM, KH2, Okage: Shadow King, Secret Agent Clank
People always speak about the 1000 heartless, but to me its always felt like a tedious button mashing exercise (cynics can stop right there before they say a good portion of fights in the game are like that).
I enjoyed the Hercules/Beast worlds the most probably and the ending world wasn't too bad either.
