This is what happens when Square and Disney collide...,
This review is from: Kingdom Hearts (Video Game)
In Kingdom Hearts, you play as a 14-year-old named Sora who lives on the Destiny Islands along with his pals, Riku and Kairi. However they dream of new worlds and are anxious to go and explore them - they're wish becomes true but not in the way they imagined...
A storm is cast on the Destiny Islands, tearing them apart and leaving Sora unconscious. He finds himself alone in Traverse Town when he wakes and soon meets Donald and Goofy who were ordered by the King (Mickey) to accompany him on a journey to defeat an evil force known as the Heartless for Sora is the master of a weapon known as the Keyblade...
The gameplay is similar to Final Fantasy except you use the left analog stick to move freely around and use the directional buttons to select commands of which you execute using 'X'.
Oh, and there's no flashy screen when you enter battle - your command list simply turns red and you enter battle mode whereas you can only attack, magic and use a special move and can't open chests and examine things. The Disney characters are voiced by their original actors and from time to time you team up with such heroes as Peter Pan, Aladdin and Tarzan.
There are even Final Fantasy characters like Cloud, Squall, Selphie, Tidus, and Wakka. You don't team up with them but you do get to meet and talk to them (and even fight some of them!). Oh and a welcome appearance of moogles! These little guys sythense items for you if you bring them the right stuff like in Final Fantasy IX.
If you love Disney's movies and Square's Final Fantasy games then you're gonna love Kingdom Hearts. What are you sitting around for, you buffoon! Buy this now!
