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

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Kingdom Hearts was the little crossover that could.

  • Conclusion: Despite these minor problems, I was a fool for not trying Kingdom Hearts II sooner. In a decision reminiscent of something out of The Beauty and the Beast, my reluctance to give KHII a try was little more than me judging a book by its cover. Despite my pessimism, this unusual, yet successful, blend of Final Fantasy and Disney proved to be just perfect.
  • Pros: Improved control system; excellent soundtrack; interesting game world.
  • Cons: Difficulty level too easy; main story is short; some disappointing side quests; repetitive enemies.
