Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories
It's better than the game boy. The graphic are great. Having to use cards was annoying but it's also a good challenge for hardcore gamers. Riku's story was hard but it just a game you want to see the ending of. Sora's was just complicated.
Good but not so much with the cards
The game it self is a very fun and thrilling game but I think the cards in the game should have beeen takin out. I think that it did make the gameplay sucky but it was still a fun game and thair are 2 part one as sora and one as riku.
One of the BEST
i liked the kingdom hearts seies and think they should make a third for the ps3. i loved birth by sleep and the whole series was a blast to me!! enjoy the game
This game is the bomb.im myself is a kingdom heart freak. not a fan,but a freak. had almost every kingdom heart game except kingdom heart, and kingdom heart re:coded. but its a little hard without the first version,but i learn quick.i dont see y people dont like the card system its great.
An Outstanding Kingdom Hearts Game!
This game is beautiful. The story is very unique, the graphics are great, and they are even better in 1.5 Remix. My only problem with the game is the gameplay. I am not a huge fan of the card system. I do not hate it, but it bothers me sometimes. I don't really know why I dislike it, but I just do. I prefer the original fighting style, like in Kingdom Hearts 1. The only thing that I like about the gameplay is that it can prove to be very challenging, so for your first playthrough, you might not ant to start on the hardest difficulty like a lot of people do, because you will want to quit after the first two worlds and never play it again. If you replay it, then you can try it on the hardest difficulty. Overall, this is a magnificent game, and it is one of the best in the series.
My time with this game was very enjoyable. The gameplay, which is card-based, is pretty cool. It's much more challenging than the other Kingdom Hearts games, so those of you who don't want to get stuck 15 hours into the game, you can take "Beginners Mode." Anyway, the game is pretty long, I'd say around 20-30 hours. There isn't much depth, in my opinion, but it's worth playing through at least once. As a PS2 game, I expected to see more voice acting and less text. That didn't happen. The voice acting is very limited. In fact, only a few characters are voiced (Sora, Donald, Goofy, and 3 organization people, including Axel). This is a problem, because I end up feeling like I'm playing a handheld game on the TV. Even the music got a bit annoying towards the end. Problems aside, this is a must-own title for Kingdom Hearts fans. For those of you interested, yes, this game does have an intro music video. The video has the same song from the original Kingdom Hearts, showing a recap of the story so far.
Stack 'em up!
I love this game just because its so different from the others. No, I bought the original version, for the Game Boy Advance. It was beautiful, and I loved the idea of a deck system, and yet while others bashed it, I applauded it. Yet, I'm going to talk about just this version. The Re-make. I generally thought this version was a lot easier. With the PS2 controls, you could easily evade the enemies attacks, which made it easy for you to escape whenever you needed to. The voices were amazing though, and I personally loved seeing the Organization's works in better form. My favorite part of these two versions were that you got to play as Riku. It made the game just that much better.
This is one of many amazing Kingdom Hearts games that makes me the huge fan that I am. One of the many amazing qualities in this game storyline is outstanding, and is probably my favorite storyline out of all KH games(Besides Birth by Sleep). And I love how they introduce a new way to play KH, although it is a little aggrivating at first, but once you get used to it it's awesome. And you are introduced to a new evil group, Organization 13,(and you end up killing most of them). There are also many new and old abilities you can use, along with your old summons. And the bosses in this game are very hard to beat. If your not at high level you better hope your lucky, because they are not easy at all. But I think that hard bosses make games better. Also, not only do you play as Sora, but you also get to play as Riku(only when you beat Sora's story mode though). But the bad thing about Riku's story mode is that you don't get to sort out the deck on your own, the game automatically does it for you. Although, you do get to use his dark form, which is awesome. Overall this game is definately a game any KH fan, or anyone that is just becoming one to get.
Not for the closed-minded gamer
First of all, let me say that I'm absolutely a hardcore Kingdom Hearts fan. That's really the crowd this game appeals to - the cut scenes are more than a step up from the dinky (but still appealing to some) game boy advance graphics of its original.
This remake is total eye candy for the hardcore Kingdom Hearts fan, and I'm sure that's why the reviews are so mixed.
I wouldn't give this game's story a perfect 10 because it always kept me hanging... but what good game series wouldn't? I'm also a gamer who's used to Final Fantasy's more mature and deeper themes, so maybe I just have to loosen up and embrace the Disney side of life.
The card battle system isn't for everyone. Imagine a video game system that requires you to think? Preposterous! Actually, I found it to be a worthy challenge and a well-needed change from the usual x button abuse. Certain parts made me have to go backwards and level up, but the wasted time was well rewarded with juicy cut scenes.
Nomura is a genius, since these remakes are raking in the interest - and the cash. He's got my money!
MORE LIKE KINGDOM SUCKS.
After playing kh one and kh2, i was expecting for kh chain of memories to put a huge smile on my face like the first two games, but boyyy was i wrong. this game sucks big time. first of all, the way u fight is completely different from the first two games. if i wanted to play a card game, i would not have bought this game. the summons in this game r useless as well. in part one and two, they did alot of damage to your enemies n were more spectacular in animation. dont expect that this time. another annoying thing about this game is, you constantly have to keep going thru your menu, to discard unwanted cards and make room for new ones. unlike kingdom hearts one n two were the storyline was solid, this game feels like they just trew it together at the last minute to hold us fans over til kingdom hearts four. i hope they go back to actual battles with weapons n your characters and not cards. i will not recommend this game for players to buy. RENTTTTTT IT.
