Kingdom Hearts II PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Being a Disney/Square-Enix collaboration, Kingdom Hearts was the strangest of unions, a coming together of two giants from separate entertainment categories. Characters from both Final Fantasy and an array of Disney films were featured along with some of the most famous of Disney worlds for the player to explore. It should never of worked but by god it did!

Key Alterations

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The long awaited next chapter in the Kingdom Hearts series, Kingdom Hearts 2 , makes some changes to the original formula, some good and some not so good, but fans of the series will certainly find a lot to love. The game provides an exciting, if at times cryptic, continuation of the series story line, and on the whole, provides a fun and entertaining experience.

Putting the Heart in Heartless

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: When the concept of Kingdom Hearts was revealed a few years ago, it certainly seemed like a wholly ridiculous idea. The combination of Disney worlds and characters with Final Fantasy characters sounded extremely unnatural. Thus, it was a surprise when the game turned out to be reasonably enjoyable, bringing its own cast of interesting characters into an entertaining story; the crossover turned out to be far less awkward than feared.

Stolen Identities

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: When Square and Disney originally announced that the two companies would be working together on a crossover between Final Fantasy and Disney characters, many people worried about the results. In the end, Kingdom Hearts ended up becoming a success, though people mostly either hated or loved it. The game ended up selling around 7 million copies worldwide, and when Tetsuya Nomura and Square Enix announced that they would be creating a sequel, fans were excited.

Putting the Laughter in Slaughter

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Kingdom Hearts was the little crossover that could. When Square Enix announced its partnership with Disney in creating a role-playing title based on a mix of Final Fantasy games and Disney films, skeptics jeered and longtime fans scratched their heads. Nearly five years later, Kingdom Hearts II has arrived in North America, bearing promises of outdoing its predecessor with better controls and a richer story, and -- perhaps the most incredible of all -- being two and a...

A Loss of Some Disney Magic.

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: In 2002, Squaresoft and Disney did the unthinkable and collaborated on the Japanese-style Action RPG, Kingdom Hearts . Many critics believed it would fail to please either Disney or Final Fantasy fans. However, the game delivered and sold far better than anyone expected. A sequel was inevitable. Now, Kingdom Hearts II has arrived and gives gamers more of the same.

Kingdom Hearts 2

Guide 2 Games
8 September 2009
  • Excerpt: With stunning visuals and incredible gameplay Kingdom hearts 2 is one of the best RPGs on the PS2. Mild use of magic and summons, a midriff bearing girl, and walking through the Underworld might scare some off. But this game is one for the history books.

Kingdom Hearts II

playmagazine
8 May 2009
  • Conclusion: Yeah, it’s really that good. In ten years, Kingdom Hearts II will be remembered as one of the absolute triumphs on PlayStation 2. Essentially everything that was wrong with the original has been fixed: The camera is now fully adjustable via the right stick, battles are bursting with things to do, and the dreaded Gummi Ship stages have been expanded into a fully-realized, Panzer Dragoon-inspired shooting experience.

Grand Theft Auto IV

GAMESQUAD
30 May 2008
  • Conclusion: As an open world simulation, Grand Theft Auto IV is some kind of a revelation. As a narrative device, it is practically perfect. Judged on its gameplay merits alone, it stumbles, taking the sheen off of an otherwise engrossing experience. Nonetheless, creators Dan Houser and Rupert Humphries have produced what is ultimately one of the most convincing and scathing critique of American culture.
  • Pros: Brilliant story; witty, clever, mature dialogue; amazingly realized Liberty City; tremendous amount of gameplay to partake in; visceral combat.
  • Cons: Clumsy combat mechanics; sometimes plodding, grinding pace.
