Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMIX
Omg It's finally happening
The one game I've bee waiting for my whole life. For those who don't know what all the fuss is about. Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix is one of the greatest game ever made in Japan. They put a lot more challenges in this game than the first. If you look at Youtube on the Japanese version of final mix, they show a new map that lets you fight all 13 members of the organization, and they are harder than the other games you beat them in. Not only that, you get to fight TERRA and Roxas. And Terra happens to be incredibly hard to beat. The heartless in the game are more challenging to beat. I don't know much about BBS, because I never played it. I did hear it's a great game on the psp. And now, Birth By Sleep is going to be final mix, which is going to be awesome. Coded seems ok. I'll plat it, but it's because I want to know the story. I you like Kingdom Hearts 2 on the ps2, then you'll forget everything about until 2.5 is finally released on the PS3. When the time comes, get ready for the ride of your life, and be ready when Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Most anticipated release of 2014!!
Kingdom Hearts 2 was my favorite game as a kid. I never got to play Birth By Sleep because my mom wouldn't buy me a psp. Getting to play both on my ps3 will be the best thing ever! Don't really care about Re: Coded though :/.
About time this finally shows up
I've waited a long time for this, I checked this website everyday when this would show up. Now I can pre-order this immediately.
Best of the Series
If you are a Kingdom Hearts fan, this is a must buy. Kingdom Hearts 2 and Birth by Sleep were the two best games in the series, and the Final Mix versions of each of them each have a plethora of content that has never been released outside of Japan before. Having them in beautiful HD with this content is a dream come true. And at $40, how can you resist?
As an owner of the originals for the PS2, I had a blast running around finding all the secrets and upgrading to the best weapons in the game. I did the same with 1.5 remake and I love seeing those trophies. Now with 2.5, I'll be able to fly through KH2 with ease--it's my favorite. Hopefully they left those lovely glitches in the game.
Haven't played Birth by Sleep or Re:Coded so interested in seeing how the story evolves. But I was blown away by the Birth by Sleep bonus credit video at the end of 2. So maybe I'll be able to see what happens to Terra, hmmmmmmm?
But I think the biggest thing is that we're just so excited for KH3. Hopefully they won't make it a PS4 exclusive. I'll be bummed that it isn't, but not too much since I'm working on getting a PS4 & a Wii U.
The Best of The Series
I'm so excited for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMix, and there's good reason why. I was very impressed with Kingdom Hearts 1.5, Kingdom Hearts 1 dramatically looked like an entire different game. The HD changes so much, I can't imagine going back to playing it on my PS2. Now Kingdom Hearts II is my favorite game in the series, in my opinion the best. Graphically its one of the best looking games on the PS2. Now I've seen it remastered in HD, the game looks absolutely gorgeous! The HD is enough to make it look like a high quality PS3 game from the footage I've seen. Not only that, its Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. So the US will finally get the Remix version. Which means the Sora vs Roxas boss battle will be in the game, as well as against Terranort. In KH 2 FM your see plenty of new stuff that wasn't included in the original version. Now for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, BBS has the best combat in the KH series! One thing I'm excited for is it originally released exclusive to PSP. So its going to be awesome playing it on the big screen TV in HD! If you haven't played BBS, its definitely the best spinoff in the series, and its very important to the storyline, especially to Kingdom Hearts 3! Ventus, Terra, and Aqua are great characters that your get attached too. BBS is repetitive, as playing as three different characters, so your going to be playing the same similar storyline three times. Still its an amazing game! As for the Re-Coded HD Cutscenes, can't really say I care much for it. I found Coded to be the least important game in the series, but who knows maybe there add more to it. Anyways, I can't wait for this and am glad it will be here in time for the Holidays. I do wonder why KH 2.5 isn't coming to the PS4, its probably because the PS3 has a larger install base and they started the game back in October. If your a fan of the Kingdom Hearts series you don't want to miss out. This will be a perfect filler until Kingdom Hearts III is out. And if your new to the series, here's a great wait to start. BBS is the prequel so its a nice game to start out with.
Greatest story currently anticipating
I never played kingdom hearts before the 1.5 remix. And I absolutely loved it. Such amazing gameplay. So much to do, like the story, and collecting key blades. I really thought the story was just amazing and I've never loves a story mode so much. I purposely never looked up cutscenes of kingdom hearts 2 because I never wanted to spoil it for myself and miss out on many suprises. Honestly so pumped can't wait!
I'm excited for this collection to go with the first. However I'm a bit annoyed that this one won't include a limited edition art case to match my first one. It's not that I truly care about the art book, but it does annoy me how they won't match. Also, the collector's pin is decent, but it seems kind of a cheap alternative to a collector's edition case. The final mix of 2 is what I most look forward to, since it was rehauled so much it should feel like playing a new game. The thing that annoyed me most in 2 was lack of a dodge button, and I read final mix has a dash move to help with this.
3 in 1!
Easily one of the greateast games I have ever played. You get Kingdom Hearts 2, Birth by Sleep and Re:Coded in one bundle! BBS is a prequel and follows three Keyblade Masters in training, Ventus, Terra, and Aqua and is every bit as enjoyable as the successors. Never played Re:Coded, but Kingdom Hearts 2 was spectacular. Great music, improved graphics, complex story and multiple Disney and Final Fantasy icons, all for $40. What more could you possibly want?
Great Way to get into Series
This along with the 1.5 HD Remix are great games for those who are interested in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3, or who just want to play the games they missed on the PS2. In addition to Kingdom Hearts 2, you also get Birth by Sleep which is a prequel to the series, and Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded which a small series of events that take place right after Kingdom Hearts 2. If you were to grab this in addition to the 1.5 HD Remix and Dream Drop Distance for the 3DS, you would have all the Kingdom Hearts games, preparing you for KH3.
