by SawltheAuraHedgehog Kingdom Hearts Games in order.
This is all true of how the Kingdom Hearts games go in order. Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, Kingdom Hearts Reconnect; <-- This one is not out yet, KH 1, KH Chain of Memories GBA (for on the go to paly anywhere, but by the KH RE DONE COM for the PS2), KH 358/2 Days, KH 2, Then the story goes off on us play This one Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. If you want to know where I found this out at, look inside Decembers 2010 Gameinformer magazine or it was the November issue. I hope this has helped you out, but remember this from KH 1 to KH Re:coded thats legit, KH BBS to Reconnect could be some kind of add in to the story. ALSO NOTE THIS DON'T FORGET THE FINAL MIXES OF KH1 AND KH2 THEY HAVE MORE TO THE STORY OF KH IN THEM.

Rated 5 out of 10 by RevenantBacon Could have been beter
This was one of the larger dssapointments in my gaming history. I picked it up at a Wal-Mart, and proceded to begin playing shortly thereafter. At first, I was optimistic about the game, I thought "Oh boy, annother Kingdom Hearts game for the DS". I had already played and completed 358/2 days, and was looking forward to this game surpassing it. I was let down, however, by the rather lame story line, that seemed rather hastily thrown together. I admit that the gameplay was very good, and thegraphics were just as good as in 358/2 days, the sound track wasn't bad, but it was pretty much the same as in all of the other KH games, so I wasn't especially impressed. As annother downside, this game has minimal replay value, as there is no New game+, etc. Instead, you go through the story fighting enemies that become increasinly easier to defeat. All in all, thi game is at the bottom of my 'to play' list, and the only way my friends will hear about it from me is if I give them mine just to get rid of it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by StarCounter Probably a mediocre Kingdom Hearts
I'm a huge Kingdom Hearts fan. I've played through every one of the games. Re:Coded looks promising, gameplay wise and storywise: gameplay resembles Birth By Sleep and tons of other fresh ways to play, and KH just always has great story. However, the locales are once again the same stale ones from the original. Also, the lack of even a voice in the opening cutscene in the TRAILER is disheartening--the Japanese trailer was voiced, why not America? The DS doesn't have as much space for voiced cutscenes like PSP and consoles, but on 358/2 they had some voiced ones. It feels like Re:Coded has barely been ported over to us--without much energy involved. I sure hope that it is voiced when it comes out. I also hope that the new DEBUGGING gameplay and other fresh gameplays (like the sidescrolling and turn based RPG gameplays) and the story will be enough to overcome the stale worlds that fans are tired of and the obvious lack of effort put into the cutscenes.
If not, this will probably be a mediocre Kingdom Hearts.
Rated 10 out of 10 by gitrdone9921 Great game with a twist to the series.
I have every Kingdom Hearts game so far. I was not a fan of 358/2 Days and I was afraid this game was going to be the same with it also being on the DS. This game would've been great on a PSP as far as handheld because it can have better graphics. The game is very short compared to the other games in the series. What this game lacked in story, it more than made up for in gameplay. They have been trying different ideas with commands, panel boards, the matrix, etc. I like the setup of this game the best so far. I really liked having the commands in Birth By Sleep and they used it again in this game and I love it. They also added a twist in having different aspects of gameplay. For example, for one boss, the level is an old style 2D scrolling level, one is a first person where Sora is running and you have to dodge blox and destroy enemies. I recommend this to any Kingdom Hearts lover and to those that are unsure about the game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by AsterPup Pleasant Twist to Kingdom Hearts
I have seen several videos of this game, both the original cell phone version and the DS version. The game looks wonderful, it looks like not only does it bring back the old things Kingdom Hearts fans everywhere enjoy, but it seems to also be bringing in more things to appeal to other genres. Puzzle gamers, Original Turn-Based RPG players, etcetc. Just a few modes I've seen are a side-scrolling adventure/mario like gameplay where you must smash blocks to progress, and I've seen gameplay of a turn-based RPG feature, as well as some, what appeared to be, puzzles to follow through. Like I said though, they brought back familiar territory, as there are also some classic fights. The whole idea of a new Kingdom Hearts game being brought to the USA got me really excited, and I almost instantly pre-ordered my copy. I don't regret my decision to do so, either. I am very much looking forward to it. Me? I would certainly recommend this game to players of puzzle gamers and RPG gamers alike. Other genre's as well, but those two are major factors, or so it seems.

I was given the opportunity to play this game at ComiCon 2010 in NYC and I was able to speak with one of the developers, and he was kind enough to "unlock" the demo so I could explore all of the menus. I was thrilled.
As for the story: This is part of canon, and "takes place" after KHII.
As a big fan of KH and KHII, I hated "Chain of Memories" and "Days." I had become disinterested with any handheld ports of the games. However, this game plays much more like the original games as opposed to its horrible DS counterparts.
It has a leveling system similar to FFX's Sphere Grid, with a lot more branches allowing for a lot of varied character customization options. The game has similar controls to the originals though at times there are genre-changing zones. Side-scroller, turn-based RPG, etc.
If you loved KH, KH2, and hated all of the horrible handheld games, do not worry. This game IS for you.
Rated 0 out of 10 by kingdomheartslova Looks like yet another upset for the DS :(
I have been a big fan for years and more than ever have Iooked upon quality for the DS. Lets look back in October 2009...when kingdom hearts 358/2 days came out. I, like many others, per ordered it. I was very disappointed with the quality of the game. The length of the game I thought was a cop out...only 7 worlds to "discover" and making fill-in missions to cover the length of the game. One element that both the upcoming coded and 358/2 days is the picture quality. I' ve seen birth by sleep played before my eyes and the quality is to die for...on a screen a little bigger that the dsi XL! unbelievable! As for coded, the game itself is nothing new...mashing the worlds from KH1, as well as the character sora himself ! If I were you, I would definately deviate towards epic mickey if you're a TRUE disney fan. If you never played birth by sleep and have a PSP, go get it. I'm not only a kingdom hearts fan, but a vintage video game fan as well. So I'm swaying back and forth towards super mario all stars and epic mickey....LONG STORY SHORT...i advise you put your money towards something else!!!

Re:Coded doesn't do much for the overall main plot of Kingdom Hearts, except maybe move it ahead by a few steps. AND IF YOUR NOT A FAN THIS GAME WON'T MAKE MUCH SENSE. But the game it's self it one of a kind. It's learned its lesson from 358/2 Days and applies a new system of gameplay. Re:Coded takes place in the Data World of Jimmeny's Journal and once again takes the players through the worlds of Kingdom Hearts I. Gameplay is something that this game excels in, it takes the combat style from: Birth By Sleep and modifies it for the DS. What I found best about the game was the constant change of gameplay, one world your side scrolling, and the next your on a turn based system. Its fun without ever really getting boring! It's a must have for the DS, though if you haven't played any of the previous titles I suggest you do! Here's hoping for the next Kingdom Hearts game!
