Is Kingdom Hearts 2 worth getting?

Postby The Top Crusader » Mon Jan 08, 2007 3:50 pm

So I played the first one a while ago, and while I'm not really much a Disney fan, it was pretty cool. I used to LOVE Final Fantasy and RPGs in general, but kind of got bored of the turn based kind, so it being sort of an RPG hack n slash it was pretty fun. I've heard the second one is okay but not really as good as the first... but hey, its getting cheaper now, so I am thinking of picking it up. I rarely buy games that are over like... $10. :anxious: I'm a cheapskate. But hey, I got Viewtiful Joe for $7 the other day, it's pretty cool. But yeah... is it worth my while? :x

If you played the first you are obligated to get the second. ;)

But yeah, its a masterpiece of an action RPG and youll get alot of enjoyments out of it...just dont get frustrated that you have to play as roxas for so long. ;)

You could also wait and see if the Final Mix version of the game is coming out in the U.S.

In answer to your question, Top, and to hear one of my oddly obsessed-with-Kingdom-Hearts friends say it, you must buy KH2.

However, seeing as I've never played it (Xiao: but you have researched it), don't take my word for it. You know, disclaimer and such.

There is no final mix version of the game.

The US game contained more content then the japanese release. The Japanese realized a "final mix" version which contains the extra content that only the U.S. version contained.

Are you talking about the original game or Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix + and Re: Chain of Memories? 'Cause there is a lot of stuff in the currently Japanese Final Mix+ that's not in the U.S. version.

Yeah, I just read today that the US Final Mix (with Chain of Memories and stuff) is coming out ... this fall, I think it said.

Yeah, dunno if I'll wait for that... I'd not mind waiting but the cost will be a lot higher once it DOES show up this fall, so I'll probably end up getting the regular version.

Chain of Memories is all well and good, but not really important to play between KH1 and 2 is it? :anxious:

Well it's still not confirmed. But if you want my opinion I think it will. KH games make too much money to not be released here.

The Final Mix comes with CoM I believe. You can understand the story in KHII, but it'll be confusing and you have to pay really close attention. A lot of it builds on the CoM story, but at the same time the developers know that not everyone's played it so they try to fill in the important gaps in the story.

CoM is like a bridge between KH1 and 2...

So if I am too impatient to wait for Final Mix should I get the GBA one before I get KH2? Or just skip it!? :x

Top, I would say just wait. Whether or not Final Mix comes out, once you're done playing you'll just be waiting for KHIII to come out like the rest of us. And if it doesn't come out, the price may've probably dropped by then, or you may be able to find a used one somewhere. I don't see need for a hurry.

Two games for the price of one. How will that not be worth it?

Probably because a lot of people already have the 2 games in question... though the 3D upgrade of the one is nice.

yeah, I never played Chain of Memories so for me it's completely new. And the new areas in KHII alone are enough for me to buy it. That was the main thing that disappointed me in KHII: the fact that the levels were so small, and simple.
