At first after looking at Kingdom Hearts you think to yourself, Disney and Squaresoft...is that the best idea they could come up with? Then you pick it up at the store just for the heck of it cause your bored. As you start the game you watch the opening scene, then you start playing...
The story is so deep and meaningful that it makes me cry at its brilliance. You play as Sora, a teenage boy who lives with his two best friends Riku and Kairi on Destiny Islands. The three get separated after an attack on their world by weird creatures called heartless. During his search Sora obtains the keyblade, a mysterious weapon with the power to lock and unlock the keyholes of the worlds. Sora then meets Donald and Goofy, and an array of your favourite Disney characters in his journey to find his friends and save the worlds from the heartless.
The music is fantastic and blends in so nicely with the worlds you visit. "Simple and Clean" is just so amazing and is one of my favourite songs. The sounds of Sora's footsteps and even him swinging the keyblade are so realistic. Square(and Utada Hikaru) did a fabulous job with the music youll love every song.
The graphics are so vibrant and colorful. You will be amazed at the stunning character and world designs. They are so well done and every detail of each character and area are just breathtaking, it is just gorgeous to watch. Itll make you want to re-visit every world over and over again.
Arent you tired of the typical RPG battle system. Turn-based battles can be fun but after awhile they just get boring. Kingdom Hearts's battle system is the best ive seen, theres no WARNING flash and then you go to a different screen. You fight on the field using all sortsof combos and abilities that are stunning to watch. It is so fun and refreshing that you will run around just to fight. Youll also look forward to the exhilarating and intense boss battles that will just blow your mind.
A deep, meaningful, and intense story that will make you cry at times. Breathtaking graphics and music that will blow your mind. The best battle system ever made and memorable characters that you wont um...forget. Disney and Squaresoft doesnt seem like such a bad idea now does it? Dont overlook Kingdom Hearts because of Disney, its a nice and refreshing addition that youll love forever. So go and buy Kingdom Hearts its worth every cent and youll play it over and over.
