  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: When Square Enix re-releases RPG games, they often tread a fine line between creating thoughtful remakes or hatred-inspiring rehashes. I'm happy to report that Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, a PS2 port of a GBA game, falls in the former category-it's a worthy addition to the much beloved franchise as well as a compelling choice for diehard fans as it sheds some much needed light on events from past entries in the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
  • Pros: Challenging combat, addictive card system, overall game is paced very well

Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories

Playstation Illustrated
18 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Just to clear up any misconceptions going in, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories is not a brand-new entry in the series, nor does it add much to the series mythology. Rather, Re: Chain of Memories is an upgraded port of the 2004 GBA game with upgraded visuals, but not much else. Re: Chain of Memories gets the most out of the PS2's hardware and shows how comfortable Square Enix is with the hardware.
