5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB!!! December 26, 2004
By Rocco
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is so much fun it is difficult to express how happy I am having spent my money on it.

Graphics: 10/10. The graphics are absolutely incredible for being on a GBA. I've been playing Chain of Memories (CoM) on my Nintendo DS and often thought "wow, this DS does have good graphics..." just to remember I was playing a GBA game! In particular, the cinematic cutscenes could easily be N64 quality.

Music: 8/10. Original themes from the original Kingom Hearts. Well transposed to handheld, but nothing exceptional.

Story 9/10. If somewhat linear and not extremely original as the first Kingdom Hearts, CoM presents a genuinely sweet and enveloping story. Grown ups and kids should love it both, each one capturing and apprciating some of the sides of the story the other would not.

Gameplay: 10/10. This is where the game is actually great. It manages to insert a "card game" into a live action brawler. In combat againsty the heartless you command Sora through cards you collect and buy during the game. The cards can be combined to create enhanced effects and to deal major damage on your enemy. You will find out that creating a well balanced deck is vital to sucess. One suggestion: you have 3 possible decks you can keep at the same time, make one for normal heartless duels, and custom make another for boss encounters.

(One of the coolest combos is using 3 Cloud evocation cards.)

Finally, you will be exploring and shaping the worlds you explore through "map cards." In fact, every time you reach a door you must open it with a "map card."

These map cards are found as loot after duels and deciding which variety will affect the sort of "area" you will end up in and its contents. This adds a lot of fun and strategy to the game.

Bottom line:

A MUST BUY FOR ANY GBA OWNER!!!

Moreover, if you like at all Final Fantasy or Disney, you need to have this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth playing just to see the ending! April 15, 2006
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played all the way through Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and even though I had a hard time while playing it, it was worth playing it just to get to the ending scene.
Although this game is very difficult and the card battle system is highly annoying, through all of my frustration... Making it to the end of the game was very rewarding and made it all worth it!
For those of you who have played Kingdom Hearts for the PS2 and are going to play Kingdom Hearts 2, this game is the one that links Kingdom Hearts with Kingdom Hearts 2. In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, the whole story explains what happened to Riku after the events in Kingdom Hearts, and it shows what happened between Axel, Sora, and Namine before Kingdom Hearts 2. So why isn't this game KH2 and the new one for the PS2 Kingdom Hearts 3? Well, it's because this game isn't a true sequel to Kingdom Hearts because you play through all of the same levels as KH1, and by the end of the game Sora loses all of his memories, so it's as though the whole thing never happened. (Dont act like that's a spoiler, play the game for ten minutes and it tells you that it's going to happen.) But it's worth playing to find out what happened between Sora, Axel, and Namine in the past.

For those of you who haven't played the original Kingdom Hearts, or dont own a PS2, the game is worth playing because of how cool the KH series is, and since it's not a true sequel and has a story of it's own... You dont have to play Kingdom Hearts to enjoy it.

Although this game's battle system is very annoying and hard to work with, the game has an amazing story and great graphics!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely stunning GBA game... June 8, 2006
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Handheld games are usually given second class treatment when it comes to big name franchises. The games are usually thorwn together quickly with low production values. Kingdom Hearts is the complete opposite.

This game plays, sounds, and looks beautiful.

The voice acting is done superb, the music and sounds are sharp and the graphics are awesome. I cant believe the high quality of the full motion videos in this game. I didnt think a Gameboy was capable of this quality.

And this aint no short romp through the enchanted lands of Disney. The main story took me 18 fun hours to get through. Plus there is a second complete game, with a new character and abilities, once you beat the main story.

And this second game is full with a new story and dialogue. This is pretty much unheard of...

Thoguh i must admit that some of the boss battles in this game will have you ripping your hair out. While the card battles and card collecting is addictive and fun, it can be annoying when some bosses have stacks of the best cards in the game...

All in all this game is a pure gem from its quality packaging and to its superb graphics and gameplay. Whether youve played Kingdom Hearts for the PS2 or not, every Gameboy owned should pick up a copy of this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great sequel! December 7, 2004
By Linka
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, is the bridging gap between Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2. It offers a new storyline, a new battle system, and a new look at the series, including cut scenes that match the graphics of the original Kingdom Hearts.

In Chain of Memories, Sora comes across a crossroads. A dark figure in a hooded trench coat appears, and says that Sora has much to gain, but in order to gain something, he must lose something in return. Sora turns around to face the figure, but the figure vanishes, and suddenly, the figure appears, now floating above one single road, the crossroads now gone. Sora follows after the figure, coming across a disfigured castle named Castle Oblivion. Inside the castle, Goofy, Donald, and Sora meet up with the figure once more...

In Chain of Memories, Sora is reliving all of his memories, in a way. None of the characters, apart from the hooded man, Donald, and Goofy remember Sora, no matter how hard he tries to make them remember. The first world they go to is Traverse Town, where you are taught the basics of control Sora in the game, and of how the battle system works. The battle system is made up of cards. If the card has a Keyblade on it, you attack. If it has fire, a snowflake, or lightning on it, you use magic, and so on and so forth. If you get a character card, the character who is featured will attack the enemies for a short amount of time, while Sora in unable to use any of his attacks. Also, you are able to make combo attacks by combining three cards, almost always gaining you a quick victory, especially again the defensive enemies.

The storyline is not a complete remake of the original. It's entirely new, just with similar characters and areas.
