Sora's journey in Kingdom Hearts II has drawn to a close, and now a new tale is set to begin. Jiminy Cricket is looking over the journal he used to document his first adventure with Sora when he discovers a mysterious message. He didn't write it - so how on earth did it get there? King Mickey is determined to find out, so he and his friends decide to digitize the journal and delve into its deepest secrets. Inside this “datascape” dwells a second Sora who is about to embark on a grand adventure of his very own.
Kingdom Hearts Re:coded is a unique Kingdom Hearts adventure for play on Nintendo DS and DSi. A retelling of the earlier episodically released Japanese title, Kingdom Hearts Coded, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded contains all eight episodes of the previous game on a single game cartridge. The game is an engrossing mix of gameplay types, including turn-based RPG, RTS, action and side-scrolling platforming. Other features and functionality include: diverse and entertaining boss battles, over 800 unlockables, auto-aim functionality and more.
Following the events of Kingdom Hearts II all appears well in King Mickey's realm, but is it?
With Organization XIII defeated and order restored to the worlds, it was just another day in the Kingdom until Jiminy Cricket noticed lines in his journal that he did not write. Realizing these to be computer like "bugs" in the journal, King Mickey calls upon a digitized version of Sora for help. The only person that can be counted on to save the glitch-filled worlds, in the datascape Sora discovers a truth that not only links him to the past, but also opens the door to his next journey...
Kingdom Hearts Re:coded tasks you with debuging/clearing bad data from the game journal by defeating enemies and completing objectives. The journal contains several worlds which must be explored in doing this. Different, or at least varied rules exist in each of these worlds, which in turn require varied types of gameplay for success. Gameplay types encountered include: adventure play, turn-based RPG play, side-scrolling platforming and turn-based battles. Throughout these, players utilize a variety of features and functionality including Sora's Key Blade, auto-aim, special abilities/attacks and unlockables acquired through successful combo execution, which together make Kingdom Hearts Re:coded the perfect game for both longtime fans of the Kingdom Hearts franchise and those coming to it for the first time.

Firstly this game is flawed. The first pretty big for me was the weird type of "cartoon" cutscenes where the Characters just stood on the top screen and had cartoon bubbles do the dialouge while once in a while they moved a head or arm. It seemed out of a bad comic book and while I understood that it was probably just trying to remain faithful to its original cell phone version I think it took away from the overall story. Seeing a beautiful cut scene with music and excellent graphics is fantastic but then jumping to the "comic book" cut scene takes you right out of that cinematic mood. Eventually however I did get over this issue.
The second however I COULD NOT forgive. The camera is HORRIBLE. I have always heard people complain about the camera movements in the KH series but until Recoded I have never encountered such issues. I had numberous times during the 20 hours I played the game that I just got quickly frustrated and wanted to shut my DS because I couldn't get the camera directly in front of me. I remember running away from a boss but the camera would not adjust and I couldn't see where he was coming from. By the time I locked onto him he hit me and I died. This game has one of the most awkward cameras I have ever played with in my life. Basically its you move then adjust the camera and keep repeating the process everytime you move. It can be very annoying. This issue alone almost made me give the game 3 stars.
The story however for Re:Coded was something that seemed particularly interesting to me. Basically Jiminys Journal from Kingdom Hearts has been erased and in its place is one single entry "their hurting will be mended when you return to end it". So King Mickey decides to digitalize the journal and try to find out (via some weird matrix/tron type machine) the meaning behind the strange entry. I dont want to ruin anything else with the game so I wont delve too much into the story but let me say for starters, Unless you have played Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 you will not have any idea what is going on in the later of this game. While I do love Kingdom Hearts it really monopolizes its fans to buying every system to keep up with the "story". Every Kingdom hearts story ties into each other and the games have been spread across 4 different consoles.

Kingdom hearts Re;coded > Nintendo DS
I have personally played EVERY single game but it is almost impossible for new players to jump into the series and have any idea on what exactly is going on.
I sincerely did enjoy this game alot but as far as for continuity sakes, it isnt important. Unlike 358/2 Which introduced us to Roxas, Axel, and Xion (who were a huge part of Kingdom Hearts 2 and Probably will be part of Kingdom Hearts 3 due to teasers) Re;coded offers no situations of characters that will ever be carried over to another Kingdom Hearts game. I mean your not even playing with the "real" Sora. Your playing with "Virtual" Sora and I thought that right there made me even like the game a little less because I didnt care about this computer version of the Hero I love.
Overall for a fan of the series your gonna really enjoy this game. If your on the fence about it, trust your gut and let this one slip past you. If you do play it, Enjoy!
What happens is that a virtual version of Sora from the data in the book is who King Mickey gets in contact with to find out what happens in the book as they try to unravel the mysteries about what happened. This feels a bit wonkey to me and is a poor idea in my eyes to try to get the journal back to its original condition. The game itself is fun to play, but the story feels a bit off. If you are a Kingdom Hearts fan then I'm sure you'll get this game for the story as I did. But if you are just someone who is not familiar with the story then you will be just lost.
