Excerpt: The music basically consists of toned down versions of the same tunes from the original game. All the locales in the game have their themes relatively unchanged from the PlayStation 2 version. Even the boss battle music is carefully ripped from the first game. However, unlike the PlayStation 2 version, there's only one version of the boss music in the game. The developers also had some free space to add in a little voice acting during battles.
Excerpt: Many people probably thought Square Enix
was crazy when they announced they would be making a game with Disney.
Well, for the most part, they weren't. The first Kingdom Hearts was
released in 2002 and to much surprise, it was a huge hit among Disney
fans and Square fans alike. Although many people (including my brother)
disliked the idea of the two companies fusing worlds, Kingdom Hearts
turned out to be a very successful and enjoyable game.
Conclusion: This is a great title, worth owning by any fan of Kingdom Hearts, card-based RPGâ€™s, or even Disney characters. Though the game has a few discrepancies against it, its not enough to prevent you from enjoying the experience, whether new to the series, or not. You have to give it to Square-Enix though, they did put the same effort into this title that they did with their fellow Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Final Fantasy 1 @ 2 titles.
Excerpt: Kingdom Hearts achieved the sort of success developers scarcely dare hope for. So it was no surprise when sequels were announced. It is, however, surprising the first of these sequels arrived in Game Boy Advance form. But more surprising still is how fully this pocket-sized Kingdom Hearts recreated the feel of its PlayStation 2 counterpart.
Excerpt: Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (CoM) surprised me in the best of ways. I was a tad worried about how well a game that was based around three dimensional, free-form battle action and incredible, graphic heavy cut-scenes would translate onto a system lacking the power to push the same level of graphical prowess. Thankfully, not only did CoM meet my expectations for what could be done on the small screen, it far exceeded them.
Conclusion: Have you ever wondered what became of King Mickey and Riku after the closing moments of Kingdom Hearts ? Well now you can find out thanks to Square Enix's excellent GBA title that bridges the gap between the two Kingdom Hearts games. It's an amazing game that really shows the world how good a portable RPG really can be.
Conclusion: Hot off the success of its surprise title, Kingdom Hearts, Square Enix has been hard at work on two sequels. One will grace the Playstation 2 in mid to late 2005, while the other will blast onto the GBA during the holiday season of 2004. Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories will pick up right where the first game left off. Thus, it is expected that Sora will begin his journey in search of King Mickey. Accompanying Sora again will be Donald and Goofy.
Excerpt: Well, that's essentially what it is. Chain of Memories takes place between the first KH and the upcoming KHII. It reveals quite a few of those mysterious people in black raincoats and answers some seriously nagging questions. If you're a fan of the series, you'll have to play it. If you're not a fan of the series, then this probably won't change your mind, I'm afraid.
