Game Review (Kingdom Hearts 2 - PS2)

Kingdom Hearts was great; a lot of fun; awesome story; fun to play; this game is none of these. KH2 ties in the story from the original, and the Gameboy Advanced version, Chain of Memories. I played Chain of Memories, but didn't beat it, so the story is extremely confusing to me in this game. All I know is that Sora/Roxas keeps going in and out of what I call "comas" and they make no sense; they are just flashbacks to Kingdom Hearts. This story line is whacked and annoying. The game also starts off EXTREMELY slow for about the first 3 hours or so.

Graphics: 8/10. The graphics are OKAY... people say they look A LOT better than the original, but they don't. If you ask me, there is a very slight texture difference on characters and whatnot, other than that, there is really no difference at all.

Sound: 8/10. Yeah... some licensed Disney songs are in this game, of course, but there are also some annoying made tunes for this game that are extremely annoying and pointless... the game would have been better off without it.

Control: 7.5/10. X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X,X Dead for the most part. The guys die just by pretty much smashing down X... there is really not too much too it if you want to be a "Warrior"... god this game is so repetetive.'

Fun: 7.5/10. This game fails more than it does succeeds, and it did not meet the level of hype it recieved. This is a so-so game that in no way can ever compare to the original. Sure it's a good play with great characters and fun levels, but the repetitiousness (is that a word?) of this game is ridiculous, and you will do a LOT of backtracking. It's also not very fun seeing videos of them sitting down and talking about nothing. ( Them being "Roxas" and his buddies in the begining of the game ) They talk about CRAP and just munch on random blue popsicles all the time. Did I mention they freak out when the beach is mentioned? "It's summer and we haven't been to the beach yet!" ...Oh yay... "LET'S GET SOME PRETZELS!!" And that's not the only time they get excited by pretzels... anyways, like I said, this is a game that people should play, but it's not as good as people say it is on this website. Trust me. I know what I'm saying. I'm cool like that.
