Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Ever wondered what would happen if the worlds of Final Fantasy and Disney collided? It's an odd concept, but from the most schizophrenic of acorns the mighty gaming oak of Kingdom Hearts has grown. Legendary role-play game-maker Square has been given unprecedented liberties with the entire Disney universe and has created a game featuring everything from The Nightmare Before Christmas to The Little Mermaid.

To have characters as disparate as Tarzan and Donald Duck teaming up is odd enough, but it becomes very freaky when Square throws in a variety of its own characters, such as Cloud, Squall and Aeris from the various Final Fantasies. We are, in short, talking Incongruity City. But this has one side benefit in that the storyline behind the game is by necessity rather vague, which seems to have stopped Square from filling three CDs full of new-age whining about Mother Earth, as is its usual wont. Instead it has spent even more time on the graphics and the end result is a quite stunning three-dimensional cartoon.

As for the gameplay, it may come as a surprise to learn that it doesn't actually feature--as all the Final Fantasy games do--turn-based combat. Instead it's essentially a scrolling beat-'em-up-cum-platformer with exactly the kind of complicated Square-style knobs you'd expect. The game may be a little shallow but it's an impressive artistic achievement and any title that allows you to magically summon Bambi out of thin air to attack evil demons of the underworld has got to be worth some sort of recommendation. --David Jenkins

Product Description

Kingdom Hearts is the first project from Squaresoft and Disney Interactive. This revolutionary relationship has created an entirely new genre of game--an action RPG that combines classic Disney characters and worlds with new elements created in the renowned Squaresoft style. Kingdom Hearts tells the story of Sora, a 14 year old boy whose world is shattered when a violent storm hits his island home. The storm separates Sora from his friends, Riku and Kairi, and they are scattered to strange and unknown worlds. While searching for his friends, Sora meets Court Wizard Donald and General Goofy. They are the protectors of the magical Disney Castle and are on a mission to find King Mickey, who has disappeared in mysterious circumstances. They learn that some sinister creatures - known as The Heartless - are placing all of their worlds under threat. The Heartless are on a mission to recruit Disney villains to help them steal the pure hearts and souls of others. Now Sora must join forces with Donald, Goofy and many more Disney heroes to fight The Heartless and end their reign of tyranny. But his path will not be easy, and before he is able to return home, he will be forced to make the hardest decision of his life... Kingdom Hearts is an epic tale of adventure, heroism and, ultimately, sacrifice. Squaresoft and Disney invite players to embark on a fantastic journey, explore strange and familiar worlds, meet old and new friends, and make amazing discoveries at every turn.

 

  • Final Fantasy-style role-playing in Disney environments
  • Over a hundred Disney characters
  • Guest appearances by characters from the Final Fantasy series
  • Gorgeous, animation-style graphics
  • Real-time combat
  • For 1 player

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 27 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
I was apprehensive at first - Disney meets Final Fantasy? - but after taking the plunge and buying the game, I have to say this is one of the finest PlayStation 2 titles of 2002.
Coming from the makers of Final Fantasy, you may expect a serious story of passion and war, with moving cut scenes and complex turn-based combat. Kingdom Hearts ditches this po-faced approach, gets itself a sense of humour and fun, plus features real-time combat. Its still an RPG, albeit one which is action-based. The graphics are excellent - Disney has never looked so good. The variety and depth of the environments and their inhabitants is stunning. Sound is also good, featuring most of the best Disney tunes.
Kingdom Hearts is relatively simple. There isn't much variety to the gameplay and some people may find this off-putting. But the different environments and wide range of characters means that you probably won't notice.
Squaresoft have created a gem. Kingdom Hearts isn't an all-time classic, but it is a fantastic game, despite the Disney input. I'm 18, and still love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, but what else for squaresoft! 2 April 2003
By Amber
Format:Video Game
I have been a fan of the final fantasy games for some time now. And i enjoy disney films being a kid at heart. I saw this and was worried about buying it, as i thought it might be too much of a kids game. All cutsie, and not particually eventful. I thought ah well give it a shot!. To my surprise I couldn't stop playing it!
the fighting is a little simplified from the Final fantasy games, you just control Sora they main character and he hits things, and can cast spells . you can even do a few summons!! the other 2 in your team usually donald and goofy, are left to their own devices. they can even cast spells to heal you! Always handy in a spot of trouble! And it's quite amusing hearing goofy and donald getting beaten up!
The different worlds are wonderful. Broought back memories of my childhood! It's quite fun exploring wonderland, and the jungle and things like that. you also get to have a character from that film join your team. Pretty cool.
Also there are some voice overs, was expecting the whole thing to be spoken like final fantasy x, but it's a mixture of the earlier ff games and number x. the characters have speaking dialogue in the bigger events of the game. the smaller ones like shoping for items is just dialgue boxes. The voices of the characters are well known! Like the guy who playes Angel in buffy the vampire slayer. And sora's voice is haley joel osmet. Or something like that. the kid in the 6th sense. Kinda fun.. And the disney characters voices are the sound the same as they do in the films! cool.
All in all its a pretty amazing game!! It's enjoyable and the different worlds are very true to the films and pretty cool to explore. I can see kids enjoying it for the disney factor and the more simple way of the fight scenes. But i believe it will be best enjoyed by the young at heart!!! Very adictive with a gerat story line to follow. Definatly worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disney made the right choice for once!! 25 Aug 2003
By TheNeff
Format:Video Game
When I saw the opening sequence to this game in a shop (quite a long time ago), I thought, 'Oh, another RPG'. Then, 'Hang on, was that Sleeping Beauty?', followed closely by 'What?! Donald Duck. And Goofy?!!' To my immense surprise I saw what seemed to be a Disney adventure-RPG type game... that actually looked good! So I got the game (it took me a year to buy a PS2, that's why the long gap between viewing and buying it...)
When you start the game up, the title screen looks fairly inconspicuous, but given a couple of minutes the opening sequence starts where you are treated to a wonderful piece of music accompanying some beautiful cinematics.
The story itself takes place across some of the 'worlds' that Disney created, such as Wonderland and the Jungle from Tarzan, and Squaresoft have included some of the top characters from the Final Fantasy games (now you can find out just how depressed Squall from FF8 sounds!!). The plot: stop the Heartless from destroying all the worlds with the help of Sora, Donald and Goofy. The wonderful thing about this is that on certain worlds, certain main characters join your team to help you.
The story is rather well thought out and some of the sideline plots are so sweet! Hey, when the 101 Dalmation puppies are scattered throughout each world, you just have to go and do something about it (or not if you don't like dogs...) The graphics are fantastic, with some of the best vioce acting I've seen in videogaming to date. The music is fantastic, with some of the most moving pieces I've ever heard in a game.
If you've played games like Zelda on the GC, then the lock-on battle system will be familiar to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kingdom Hearts 18 July 2004
Format:Video Game
Kingdom Hearts is a mixture of Final Fantasy and Disney.
It may sound like a game for the the very young but this is not the case. There are many challenges that small children would probably have difficulties with. The Disney characters prove to be entertaining at times and it is interesting to see the how the main story links in with all the well known, well loved Disney films. Also there are many Final Fantasy characters tied in.
The story has a strange beginning with the main character falling into darkness, but then, the scenary changes into an island paradise with the main characters of the story:
Sora, A brave 14 year old boy.
Kairi, Aged 14 and possesing a strong will.
Riku, A boy aged 15 with a curious mind.
Then one night a terrible storm erupts and Sora is sent to a different world: Traverse town where he meets up with the other main characters, Donald and Goofy. Sora learns about the Heartless (the evil in the game) and hears about his destiny involving the Keyblade.
You get to control Sora and travel across worlds and unravel the mystery of the heartless.
Kingdom Hearts is a great game. It can get slightly dull at the beinning but soon becomes gripping and exciting.
The fighting unlike the Final fantasies are one on one and as the the game progresses you can upgrade the characters and their weapons.
A must have for PS2 owners. It is enjoyable and quite long especially when completing the many mini games and sidequests.
