  • Excerpt: When announced, Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix+ boasted quite the deal for Japanese gamers. Besides numerous additions towards the main game, Final Mix+ came with a second disc containing a PlayStation 2 remake of the Game Boy Advance game, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories . Unfortunately, neither updated game was announced for western release, until 2008 when Square Enix brought over one more PS2 game: Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories.

  • Conclusion: Concept: Revive a four-year-old game on an eight-year-old console Graphics: Identical to Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 Sound: Haley Joel Osment's return to work is great. Most of the soundtrack is recycled from previous games Playability: The card battle system remains relatively unchanged, so beware if you're expecting traditional Kingdom Hearts combat Entertainment: Easily the weakest link in the franchise Replay: Moderate

Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories Review

  • Excerpt: While Square Enix’s recent Chrono Trigger remake has been sponging up the spotlight, the famed Japanese RPG publisher/developer snuck another re-imagining of one of their favorite franchises onto retail shelves. Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories may not possess the nostalgia-tapping coolness or classic street cred of Chrono , but for fans of the Disney-meets-Final-Fantasy mash-up, it’s just as important.

Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories review (PS2)

  • Excerpt: A departure from the hit-the-x-button gameplay of the rest of the series, this system is lauded as either brilliantly strategic or pathetically broken. I myself call it strategically pathetic, but I like it nonetheless.

Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories – Staff Review

21 December 2008
  • Excerpt: When Square Enix released Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ in Japan, the little extra bit that gave it the plus was a PS2 remake of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories , which was originally released on the GBA.  Sadly, we never got either Final Mix in North America, but at least we get the remake of Chain of Memories as Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories for those of us that never played it on the GBA or just feel like going through Castle Oblivion again.

  • Summary: Even as a Kingdom Hearts fan, it's hard to get excited about a remake of a GBA card game that sets up the plot for a game well over two years old at this point. Regardless, this is a fun little title. I dug the environment system that has you creating every world as you explore it, and the Slight system had me strategizing how to most effectively utilize my cards to pull off special attacks. Unfortunately, the action gets a little repetitive.
