by iVampire Amazing, but challenging
This game is very, very fun. Amazing plot, brilliant cast of characters, and I like the fact that FF chars. are in it, too. One tiny flaw I have with this game is that sometimes the cut scenes,(you can't skip them) will leave you absolutely nowhere to find the way to get to the next part. Other than that,fantastic plot, characters, and lasting appeal:10/10 =DDDDDD P.S. Don't start out with BBS like I did just because it's the first game in chronological order. (PLEASE)

by stuffedbearman My Review For Kingdom Hearts
Ok please thumb this up just for the amount of time that i took to give you awesome people this extremely in-depth review! First off story line (NO SPOILERS) Ok your a Kid Named Sora that have a special island that your best friends Kairi and Riku (and other that arent as important) that get transpoted to other worlds with two people you meet (that i will not mention so NO SPOILERS) and have a difficult but fun and humourus journey to find your two friends. Second Gameplay,Although it has a lot of Final Fantasy Charecters and References the fighting system are entirely different which means no turn based to point deduction with every hit and just normal life but there is a command menu (See Picture below) Third Graphics They are exeptional for a 2002 game just look at MAFIA one then look at KH one (see the difference if you bothered) Fourth Sound the cut scene sound the gameplay sound is great EXCEPT FOR THE ANOYING SOUND SORA MAKES -EVERY- TIME YOU ATTACK!!!!!! but you put that aside and wonderful to the ear ^|_|^ Fith LASTING APPEAL this game has so many side missions and hidden bosses it will last you as long as you pretty much want!!!! ok i will finish this off with a few more Pros and Cons: Pros: Isn't to hard so almost anyone can beat it. And Bosses are always a little bit of a challenge so you can inst-beat it or anything like that! Cons: When/if you die during a boss battle you have to watch the cut scene AGAIN no skip scene like in KH@ and so on. Wellthe all the stuffedbear has to say today oh and remember the thumbs up PLEASE!!!!!

by Supermcawsomevill Don't buy this version
This is a really good game but don't get it for the PS2. Square enix is coming out with this game in HD and its the final mix version (extended version) to the PS3. I only recommend this game if you have a PS2 not a PS3.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sly Lover Awesome Game!
The first kingdom hearts game made me really happy, though there were some improvements I would like to be made, such as the camera control. However, the music and soundtrack is one of the best video game soundtracks I have ever heard and is amazing with Hikaru Utada. The plot is really engaging, with characters who can actually speak to you. The fighting system is really unique and I like how you can actually feel like fighting, instead of pushing buttons that say "Attack" and it attacks for you. The length of the game was pretty good but the bosses were sometimes pretty hard. The camera controls were annoying at times, because instead of the right analog stick, you had to use the L2 and R2 buttons. The challenge was pretty good, though at the nearing the end of the game, it gets really hard to attack all of the enemies. All in all, it was a pretty good game, with awesome Final Fantasy characters and great looking cut-scenes, as well as an award-winning soundtrack in game magazines.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ecoohill just amazing
the kingdom hearts series is one of the best series of all time. but none of the games will be as good as the original. all the other games have been great so far ( ive played all including 358) the only one that i dont like that much is CoM cause of the card thing. but the kh series tells a great story which is why i love it. this game was very challegening. the controlls were great but i would have liked it if the camera angle change wasnt the L2 and R2 buttons. the interface was great. the sound track was absolutely epic. i own all the sound tracks for every game and they are just great to listen to. there wasnt much character customization except for changing key blades but the story is so powerful u dont even notice that he has the same outfit. the graphics were good for a ps2 game. the game takes 30-40 hours to beat so i would say thats pretty long . and again the story line is amazing and this game is well worth the ride. i would recommend it to everyone
Rated 6 out of 10 by Logini48 Okay,
I Know, most people might say that this is an extremely good game, but I am going to have to disagree. It is too complicated for my taste. After many times of trying and trying, I was only able to get a little progress, and though I may be able to defeat it, which I highly doubt, it could take me years. On the other hand, I particularily liked the music, though, big deal (a little sarcasm there!). The controls were pretty good; not very complicated and similar to most PS2 games, but the game's customization is almost obsolete. All you do is pick 1 of 3 weapons to keep and 1 of the other 2 weapons to get rid of. Other than that no customization whatsoever. The game, if I am correct , since I never finished it, is actually pretty long, and a little too long on my opinion. The storyline is extremely good and captivating, and the interface is pretty good as well. All in all, if this game were easier I'd be playing it, for all the rest of the features are great, but it's not, so I won't, and now I personally don't like this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Mallory Best. Game. Ever.
Surprisingly enough I originally bought this game for my older sister because she loved the theme song of the game “Simple and Clean” by Hikaru Utada while I bought myself Final Fantasy XII. However when I returned home, my sister wasn’t even there so I decided to start the game to see how it is. As soon as I watched the introduction (with my jaw hung open the whole time may I add) I already started to feel a pull towards this game. As an understatement I would say I got hooked on the game from that point on. I never did end up giving it to my sister; it was to amazing to give up. The creators did a breathtaking job at combining two completely different fan bases into one amazing game. I will admit some parts are tricky, but once you learn the strategy of the game it becomes very manageable. Whether you like Final Fantasy, Disney, or even neither, this game will not disappoint. To say as an understatement, if you are unsure about getting this game I cannot encourage enough for you to get it. It is a video game unlike any other.

ah, what is there to say about the beginning to my favorite game franchise for oh wow i guess 6 years or so now.......AMAZING. this game no joke should go down in history as the most original character/story ever. they combined the highest demand tv company disney and the classic amazing rpg hands down perfect gameplay and characters of final fantasy. the combat in this game goes along with final fantasy somewhat and you actually hav to strategise at some parts because of the difficulty. the storyline is completely well drawn out and it really sucks you into the experience. now i bought this when i was like nine years old and i cud beat it on easy with diffuculty but i went back recently because of the recent kh releases and beat it on hard and wow IT WAS ACTUALLY HARD!!!!! iv beaten this game 3 times now and ill probably do it again. if you ever want a ps2 game buy this one, re chain of memories, and the second one. best ps2 games ever made no joke get them, perfect 10 square enix was sent by God to this earth to make this game
