20 October 2010
Excerpt: While Kingdom Hearts fans eagerly await the third numbered entry in the franchise, Square Enix and Disney have been consistently expanding the series through portable spinoffs. Last year, the well received but strangely titled Kingdom Heart 358/2 Days graced the Nintendo DS, and now the PSP gets some love in the form of Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep ( BBS).
Excerpt: Wait a second. Soul searching adolescent, defeating darkness with a key, and classic Disney characters? That's right, it's another addition to the Kingdom Hearts series. What's that? You've never played Kingdom Hearts before? Don't worry about it. This game is a prequel to the series so you don't need any prior knowledge to understand it.
Excerpt: If you had told me ten years ago that one of my most anticipated games of the year would be a Kingdom Hearts game, I’d say you were crazy. This world is full of many ridiculous things, but a collaboration between Squaresoft and Disney?! That was possibly the silliest thing I’d ever heard of. And my wife wanted it. After watching her play for a bit, I saw that the game had an intriguing story, and I quickly became immersed in the world of keyblades and Heartless. ...
Excerpt: Birth By Sleep features an excellent battle system -- players can pick and choose several abilities to junction to the Triangle button, switching between them with the D-Pad.

Conclusion: As it stands, Birth By Sleep is a solid entry into the Kingdom Hearts franchise and rivals only Kingdom Hearts 2 as the best title in the series.

With so many characters revealed and many interesting plot points discussed, Birth By Sleep is a definite play for any Kingdom Hearts fan looking to shed some light on some of the more...
Summary: After years of anticipation, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is finally here. A prequel to the series, Birth By Sleep focuses on the story of three keyblade warriors in trainer to become master, Terra, Ventus, and Aqua. You maybe remember these three as the super bad-ass keyblade masters from the Kingdom Hearts 2 secret trailer…this is their tale. Destiny can’t be changed. Kingdom Hearts..is about to begin.
Excerpt: So, we all know by now that Kingdom Hearts is an experiment that should never have worked. We mean, come on. Mickey Mouse fighting alongside Squall Leonheart? Donald Duck and Goofy participating in an Action RPG as party members? Suspiciously homosexual overtones between members of an almost entirely male organisation in a game with Disney branding? But, work it did. And sell it did.
Excerpt: If you’re a fan of the series or not, KH:Birth By Sleep stands on top as one of the best looking PSP games at the moment Most cross-over stories on two franchises these days have either been popular or unpopular over the past years. Back in 2002 Square Enix and Disney teamed to create Kingdom Hearts, and having the idea of Final Fantasy characters in Disney worlds proved quite clever.
Pros: Combat and Gameplay is fun and addicting, Great Voice acting, Mulitplayer Arena a great way to play with friends, Stunning Graphics, Challengeing Boss Fights.
Cons: Annoying Camera, Long Loading times, Repetative Worlds enviroments and Music.
