Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep (PSP) - Review
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: 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. Using abilities with the Triangle button does not expend MP; in fact, there is no MP system in Birth By Sleep. After using an ability allocated to the Triangle button, that ability enters a cool down mode and cannot be used again until a certain amount of time elapses, this time being represented by...
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: The Kingdom Hearts series has fallen off in recent years, but the Disney crossover bounces back in the latest installment, Birth by Sleep. It takes the best elements from the previous games and throws in some new additions to provide an adventure that's right on the mark. Is this the next must-own game for the PlayStation Portable? A prequel to the original Kingdom Hearts, Birth by Sleep tells the story of Aqua, Terra, and Ventus.
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.
Excerpt: Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, the latest entry to the series, finally makes it to the European shores with lots of promises by Square Enix which could potentially be an Achilles heel to how the game will be received. The question is does it actually live up to the hype? Birth By Sleep isn’t a continuation of the series per se, it is a prequel, taking place ten years before the original Kingdom Hearts .
Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Review - Triple Threat
26 August 2010
Conclusion: The Short Version: Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is an excellent action-RPG that delivers an engrossing blend of action, stats and a little Disney magic. The new concurrent storylines and fluid fighting mechanics make for (arguably) the best Kingdom Hearts spinoff yet... if you can surpass the learning curve. A fitting swan song for the PSP.
Pros: Stupendous handheld graphics, Three intertwined storylines, Slick, deep battle mechanics
Cons: Text-heavy tutorials make for a steep learning curve, Long loading times are almost a dealbreaker, Hidden cutscene is a last-ditch effort to improve replayability
