5.0 out of 5 stars
AMAZING!, 2 Oct 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
Well, i managed to get this game ealry (last tuesday) from a local retailer. Feel sorry for those who waited till friday, but i bet it was worth it, eh?
Firsty i'd like to point out how amazing this game is, if you loved Kingdom Hearts you will love this as it totally blows the first one out the window.
I have to admit the beginning of the game as Roxas is very slow, unless you are very involved in the KH storyline this area of the game may put you off. If you know nothing about the first KH i'm afraid you may be totally lost playing this game, i recommend playing the first before delving into KH2. As for the rest of the game when u enter the role of Sora, it is a very rewarding game experience, yet the story gets thrown around quite a bit if you don't follow it carefully. Combat is totally amazing, i would say to anyone to level up the Forms and Sora as much as you can to enjoy the combos and moves you can pull off, they are eye candy and give a feel good factor to pull some off! As for the new camera system, it is an improvment yet i didn't have a problem with the KH camera unlike most people, but it is for you to decide.
Not much to say here, based on the old KH graphics with a bit more smoothness, sharpness and detail to scenery (especially in Port Royal). As i said before the combo, limit and form effects are pretty amazing and should not be missed!
Another unbeatable soundtrack, same as KH, as for most Square games, topped off with some of the old school disney tunes!
The Gummi Ship, which was a large let down in the first game, is alot more fun, ranking systems and all to keep you playing them to unlock new stuff. It has a more arcade feel and has its rewards for playing. The editor is a little bit complicated though, but i didn't use it alot! The worlds in the game are much more varied than the first, more to do and alot more detail, the words that have no relevance to the story or optional (thank god atlantica is, that was a nightmare in KH) yet the Pride Lands is pretty cool, plus u get to see Sora as a cute little lion cub!! Lastly the equipment section of the same is awsome, the available Keyblades are nice and varied, the new equipment slots have a large advantage if you use synthesis and are a true treasure seeker.
This game is such a large improvement from the first and is worth buying if you are a past KH fan, if not, you should play the first before hand! Get it now! I love it (and i have completed it twice already, heading for a 3rd it's that great.) You won't be disapointed! Roll on KH3 i say!!
