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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"An enticing and hugely entertaining collaboration between Disney fantasy and Final Fantasy. 8/10." -- Official PlayStation 2 Magazine
"Favourite characters of yesteryear have, for once, come together in a crafted and highly enjoyable game." -- Edge --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
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.
I'll begin with the good aspects of the game. The voice acting is of course superb - the game boasts among others the talents of Haley Joel Osment as Sora, Billy Zane as Ansem, David Boreanaz as Squall (Leon), Sean Astin as Hercules and James Woods as Hades. The majority of the Disney characters are voiced by official Disney Actors. The voice acting in other RPGs pales in comparison.
The music is very good and fitting to the mood of the story at the time. Wonderland's music is particularly catchy and of course "under the sea" in Atlantica.
The graphics are splendid; especially the FMV sequences. There are plenty of worlds to explore too, all based around Disney movies. You can swim "under the sea" in Atlantica, fight bandits in Agrabah or follow the white rabbit through Wonderland. Not only this but familiar characters such as Tarzan and Beast help you battle those pesky Heartless along the way.
Without going into too much detail the story although not perfect is good fun and doesn't take itself too seriously - how could it when Donald Duck and Goofy are two of the main characters! You play the game as Sora who has become separated from his friends Kairi and Riku after a storm hits their home on the Destiny Islands. Sora finds himself teleported to a strange new world and with the help of Goofy and Donald Duck, with the mysterious keyblade for a weapon, embarks on a journey to become reunited with his friends... It has a good ending too which is very rewarding, which is to be expected from Squaresoft.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
