Squaresoft and Disney Make Magic Together

AdvantagesGreat Integration of Disney Characters, Story, Gameplay

DisadvantagesSome Cameos Seem Forced

"...game. After beating the game, Kingdom Hearts stating that my faith in the two companies has been restored is an understatement. It's no secret that most of Squaresoft's efforts have been made with the older gamers in mind, and thus it came as a big surprise when the concept behind this game was revealed. My feelings for Disney have turned sour over the years; call me cynical, but the company behind the Mickey Mouse Club seems to have gotten more ..." Read review

Disney Squares Up Review with images

AdvantagesFantastic combination | Looks the part | Nice story

DisadvantagesCamera is awful

"...to have paid off making Kingdom Hearts one of the standout RPGs of recent years. In the game you play young hero Sora. Living on a secluded island him and his two friends Riku and Kairi long to visit new worlds and explore. Meanwhile in Disney Kingdom, King Mickey is missing and Donald and Goofy are sent off to try and search for him. Back on the island a storm breaks and The Heartless invade. These unpleasant creatures are invading worlds in ..." Read review

Kingdom Hearts

AdvantagesFun and enjoyable

DisadvantagesAddictive

"...will unlock a preview for Kingdom Hearts II. That's enough about the gameplay and what you need to do, I'm sure you will want to discover it all for youselves. == Some fun trivia about the game == - Atlantica and Halloween Town are the only two levels in the game in which Sora, Donald and Goofy change their appearance. - The only villain not seen in this game is Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, even though Belle and The Beast both appear. ..."

Enemies killed with big key = drugs raid on Square Review with images

Advantagesgreat graphics, easy game-play, good story

Disadvantagesunsure who it's marketed at

"...is Square’s collaboration with Disney, Kingdom Hearts. Whether this is because people don’t like it, or more likely because grown adults don’t want to admit to playing a game where you fight alongside Goofy and Donald Duck, I’m not entirely sure. All I know is that I enjoyed the experience, and would like to share it with you, kind reader. DISNEY? ISN’T THIS FOR KIDS? This game is certainly aimed at children, what with the inclusion of Disney ..." Read review

Huge scope, great game

AdvantagesUnique and Innovative, great graphics, sound and gameplay

DisadvantagesLance Bass is NOT Sephiroth!

"Kingdom Hearts, from Squaresoft and Disney, is an innovative game with unique gameplay that mixes characters from both studios. You play Sora, a child from an island kingdom who dreams of building a boat to travel to other lands. When his island is attacked by the Heartless and his friends scattered, Sora finds a mysterious Key and opens the door to other worlds. Along the way he encounters Donald and Goofy who are searching for King Mickey, who ..." Read review

Kingdom Hearts: A wonderful game that got a rough deal

AdvantagesEverything about it blends perfectly

DisadvantagesNot well received in many quarters

"Kingdom Hearts is a strange one in terms of reception. Disney fans love it, fans of Disney and Final Fantasy enjoy it, but many Final Fantasy fans couldn't stand it, many would not even try it. The mixture of Disney characters and Final Fantasy proving to be a step too far for a video game. I love both genres and thoroughly enjoyed the merging of the two. =Plot= Sora and his friends Kairi and Riku dream of leaving their small corner of the world ..." Read review

I repeat, this is not a Disney cartoon...

AdvantagesDisney characters, great story, very challenging

DisadvantagesSimple battle system, music gets tiresome, main story is split up

"...an interesting mix of characters, Kingdom Hearts has captivated gamers everywhere, and is still standing strong. Storyline: 4/5 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You can tell Squaresoft spent many hours coming up with a great story. And, I must admit, if you can understand it, the story is amazing. But it is just not put out there enough. After tramping through various worlds to lock keyholes, without any story in-between, it starts to lose its awe. There are scenes, ..." Read review

There is darkness in every heart

Advantagesgood looking

Disadvantagesa bit fiddly

"I saw the trailer for Kingdom Hearts on one of the Final Fantasy games a fair while ago. It looked strange, very surreal, and vaguely interesting, so recently I got round to picking it up. Created by Square Enix, it's a cross-over between their genre and Disney. There are appearances from characters out of the Final Fantasy series (Cid, Sephiroth, Squall to name a few) and lots of faces from Disney. The game starts with Sora, our main hero, ..." Read review

Darkness is the weakness to all

Advantagesgood game | made by square-enix | great graphics

Disadvantagesnothing really?

"...review about the RPG game Kingdom Hearts, there are many things you can do on this game, it is made by the same creators of the Final Fantasy’s which are Square-Enix. The game is very good, it has many battles that need to be won, you need to find your friends which get taken to different worlds when ‘The Darkness’ comes onto Destiny Island (the island your first on), and scatter them across the worlds. You first after the whole Darkness taking ..." Read review

Disney + RPG = PERFECT Review with images

AdvantagesGreat graphics, Addictive storyline

DisadvantagesConstantly pressing X to battle!

"Kingdom Hearts. If it was a person I would be in love and married already. I have always loved RPG games but my true passion (but don't go spreading this around) lies with Disney. Every aspect of it. And the idea that it is in a game but not all about Disney was GENIUS. There are few faults that I can personally find with this game except that I lost several months of my life and the replay value is so good I have completed it three times now (hence ..." Read review

Final Fantasy meets Disney

AdvantagesOutstanding animations and interesting concept

DisadvantagesGameplay very disjointed.

"...in this game - in Kingdom Hearts the summoned creature replace Donald and Goofy (the summoned creatures are mostly Disney characters ? e.g. dumbo) Like most traditional RPGs, as you fight monsters you gain experience and levels. However, perhaps because the game is less reliant on the fighting elements of the game than Final Fantasy, you don't have to really concentrate on what level you are etc. All it means in this game is that the more levels ..."

Disney Meets Final Fantasy

AdvantagesCool Disney and Final Fantasy Characters

DisadvantagesNone

"Available for the Playstation 2 Console Price: £45 Genre: Role Playing Game (RPG) Developed By Squaresoft 1 Player Only If you are not a great fan of Disney or Final Fantasy, then this is not the game for you. This is where Disney meets Final Fantasy. You take the role of a young boy named Sora who is a character from Final Fantasy and you travel through a bizarre half Disney and half Final Fantasy universe trying to find the friends that ..."

It shouldn't work, but it does

Advantages Extremely fun and engaging

Disadvantages A few minor gameplay setbacks

"...the advert on television for Kingdom Hearts, I was shocked. Being a relatively big fan of Final Fantasy and Disney, I thought that the idea of combining two such different elements together was completely and utterly random. But the thought of it really appealed to me and after watching the trailer I was confident that the game would be good. In fact, I was so intrigued that I begged my parents to buy a PlayStation 2, just so that I could play ..." Read review

Disney Magic

AdvantagesFantastic graphics, great voice acting

DisadvantagesShort

"...a magical adventure game? Enter Kingdom Hearts, a Role Playing Game that mixes action, Disney characters and Square’s magical formula for creating great games. The game starts by introducing Sora, a 14 year-old boy who, in the course of the story, has to find his friends after a storm separates them. Sora finds himself on a strange island, where he meets Donald Duck and Goofy, who are looking for their king, Mickey. The three of them work together ..." Read review

Everyone's a Child at Heart

AdvantagesGraphics and motion of Disney characters is amazing, and the plot is great.

DisadvantagesGets frustrating at times, (stuck on a boss / puzzle).

"So, you say you hate Final Fantasy’s random encounters and turn based battles, and love the colourful characters from Disney. Hmm… well this could just be the game for you. It combines the attacking power and sophisticated style of the Final Fantasy series, with the classic colourful characters and scenes dreamed up by Walt Disney. If you are a fan of, or have at least seen the classic Disney films, you must get this. The quality of the ..." Read review
