Kingdom Hearts 2 follows Sora, Donald, and Goofy on their continuing quest. Sora is looking for his lost friends Kairi and Riku, while Donald and Goofy are searching for their missing king.
It has been a year since the events of Kingdom Hearts. Sora and friends are joined by a vibrant new cast of characters, including the king himself! Together, they will encounter countless dangers in worlds both familiar and brand-new. It seems the Heartless, or at least some form of them, still exist. A new villain also awaits, hidden by a mask. Is it someone familiar or a new opponent to be confronted? This mystery and others will be solved as the story unfolds in a grand adventure.
The strangest team-up in gaming returns as Disney and Square Enix join forces for their biggest budget adventure yet. Taking in more Disney movies than ever before youll find the fight against the Heartless has only just begun.
As Square Enixs most successful game in the West this latest entry in the Kingdom Hearts series sees Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy recruiting allies from all over the Disney universe to battle the evil Organization XIII. The games action based combat has been significantly improved from last time, with new abilities including the chance to fuse with other characters. The camera is also a lot better at keeping its eye on the action and the Gummi Ship sections between levels are a lot more fun. As you explore each world some of the Disney films featured are obvious choices, including Mulan, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, but others are more unexpected including the first ever Mickey Mouse cartoon from 1928, Pirates of the Caribbean and Tron. The graphic style changes perfectly for each, creating the ultimate tribute to both Disney and Square Enixs gameplay.
Most exciting moment:
The real draw in the game is the chance to interact with such an odd bunch of characters. One of the best ways is via the summons spells that let you call in extra help from characters as diverse as Chicken Little, Stitch, Peter Pan and the genie from Aladdin.
Since you ask:
As well as Disney characters the game also features several from Square Enixs Final Fantasy series, although most are slightly renamed. These include Auron from Final Fantasy X, Squall Leonhart from Final Fantasy VIII and Cloud Strike and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII.
The bottom line:
Back and better then ever this is one Disney adventure that really is for all the family. -HARRISON DENT

The story starts out a little slow, however. You are virtually stuck in a bog of cutscenes. Overall, you probably move about 100 steps in the first few hours or so, which is not a lot. The fighting is pretty basic, and you have to put up with these annoying messages at the top of the screen every time you enter a significant battle. However, this all changes once you start out as Sora.
From then on, it is more like the original Kingdom Hearts, however there is a more controlled feel to the game. It may feel very linear at first, since you are often directed places and you don't really get a chance to explore. The majority of the boss battles are ridiculously easy on standard -- I would definitely advise playing Proud mode, especially since it makes it easier to get the secret ending later on.
The game has several new additions -- a new way of travelling to worlds, a new drive bar, limits gauge and summons gauge, as well as a new magic system, shorcut commands and reaction commands.
The new gummi ship system I found absolutely horrendous. It was more entertaining that the old game, where you could just leave the ship to fly itself while you nipped off to have some tea, but far more challenging for someone like myself, who is not a very experienced gamer. I found this a negative point, but this is just my personal opinion, I think that several people will enjoy this new feature, don't let me put you off.
The new Drive Forms -- there simply aren't words to describe how fantastic these are. Drive with Goofy, Donald, or both to gain new abilities or to just generally kick ass.Read more ›
I'm 19, am a HUGE final fantasy fan and like most lads my age I can put up with a disney film although they aren't exactly a film of choice! However the integration between the 2 worlds is so surreal it fits perfectly. Unfortunatly the cheesy moments can be cringeworthy at times but thankfully there's not too many of them!
The graphics are superb - but thats the high standard square enix have been setting for years now.
The sound track is a mixed bag, but one which I really enjoyed. Original scores and disney classics sum it up but it fits the entire game to a tee.
Its surprising noticing all the disney references which come back to you from your childhood. Being honest the game made me want to go out and update my disney video collection.
The story is one of the best I have encountered on the PS2. Although it may be a good idea to play the first game first to get the jist of the story. But there is enough flashbacks and explainations for new comers - they may just find the game harder to absorb.
It's really hard to pick a downfall... but if I'm picky then they are the button bashing elements and the game being slightly too easy.
So heres a quick summary
Graphics 5/5 - perfect! PS2's graphics and processing being pushed to its limits.
Gameplay 4/5 - extremely fun and addictive. Just let down by the difficulty and button bashing
Storyline 5/5 - like all good stories it has to end somewhere and it does it superb fashion.
Soundtrack 4/5 - Would have been 5 but for walking round for weeks whistling the winnie the pooh tune!
Overall - BUY THIS GAME! =) you won't regret it!
Square enix have improved on everything, the difference in graphics is amazing, the battle system is much quicker, including reaction commands, which if timed correctly bring about whole new opportunities in defeating enemies as well as good fighting cutscenes in the midst of a battle. The gummi ship is far better this time around and not just an inconvenience to get to the next world, this time around it's actually fun. Summons are back with new characters and then there's the drive command, an opportunity to fight with not one but two keyblades - literally whirl around the area and destroy enemies at the same time.
The voice cast, with some slight differences, is still just as good. Which brings me on to new characters, at least double that of KH and each bringing their own story to the game.
Prepare to be amazed at the story, which has quite a few twists near the end, and don't expect it all to be happy just because Disney is involved. Overall an amazing game that any FF/Disney or RPG fan must play - and watch out for the secret ending (so long as certain requirements are met) at the end. Strongly hinted KH3!
Now that I've got that out of my system, I finally have the game I've been waiting almost four years for. Chain of Memories for the Game Boy Advance was great but could only temporarily satisfy my hunger.
Kingdom Hearts 2 takes place a year after the events of Chain of Memories. But before Sora, Donald and Goofy make their return, the story starts out in a world called Twilight Town, focusing on a newcomer called Roxas. Roxas is being plagued with dreams of Sora and soon finds himself subjected to weird happenings. It's not long until the Keyblade mysteriously falls into his possession and he encounters DiZ, Naminé and Axel, the only member of the Organization to have survived and returned from the events of Chain of Memories.
Soon, however, Sora, Donald and Goofy are back in the fray, and have to contend once more with returning Disney villains and the Heartless, as well as a brand new threat; the Nobodies and the remaining members of Organization XIII. The events that follow complicate matters and their desire to find their lost friends.
Kingdom Hearts 2's visuals are absolutely stunning. Right from the CGI movies to the in-game graphics. As with KH1 and KH: COM, the game has the feel of a Disney movie and works on every level. It's still amazing that Disney and Final Fantasy crosses over and succeeds.Read more ›
