Meh I agree, I never cared for it.  But I do know a few people who are batshit crazy over it, especially the one who loves Sora and Rikku gay stories.  Theres a name for em but I dont remember..

But yeah, I mean its cool that its got Final Fantasy stuff in it, but honestly, that doesnt even begin to offset the disney stuff.  Im just not a huge fan of Disney so *shrug*

I doubt this will stay exclusive for long though, just as Eusis said, it is Disney.

I've never seen so many negative comments for KH in a single thread before. I freakin love those games.

Regarding the negativity: While the KH games are high-budget, I've found them to be extremely mediocre where actual gameplay and development are concerned. They aren't exactly inspiring as far as narrative goes, the art direction is hideous and artificially plastic, and the whole battle system feels like a discount version of a better, more refined idea by tri-Ace.

In short: It's substandard, and while the production values are up there, they simply don't make up for the shallow story and gameplay beneath.

KH1 wasn't boring enough to leave unfinished, that's probably one of the best things I can say about it other than the various presentation bits. I haven't REALLY started on KH2 yet but it's not the highest priority.

I thought the KH team was working on FFv13 along with the mobile KH games. Even if it is a PS3 exclusive, I wouldn't care. I wouldn't be caught dead playing a KH game.

Exact opposite over here, actually. Final Fantasy stuff = meh. Disney = awesome! The problem I have with the damn game (the first one) is the awkward battle system and pocket worlds that are smaller than your average JRPG villages. Oh, and Final Fantasy characters.

....it's just gotten stupid now. .... it's lost it's nostalgia pull now.



I agree full-heartedly and this probably sums up my feelings.

The story got really stupid near the end too.  It may have been "deep" I guess, and emotional plays on the main characters, but its taken such weird tangents, and has left too much mystery in the air and based on absolutely nothing.

I still have no idea with the Nobodies are so pissy and willing to go to battle... I don't know what anymore for their sake.

I couldn't agree more.  Kingdom Hearts 2 was superior to the first as far as actual gameplay goes...but fuck me if it wasn't just plain stupid.  That's the only word that describes it.  It's simultaneously a retcon and a rehash of what came before, the four-hour tutorial is some of the most grating shit ever slapped on a DVD, and those Final Fantasy reject Nomuratards in black were the most ineffectual antagonists I've ever seen.  You had to fight what seemed like a dozen of them at the end, and I never even knew their names till I looked them up in the little journal.

Stupid indeed.  Fuck that game and everyone who likes it.

The entire problem I have with KH is how much pretense it makes at being "deep" or "epic". At least where some of Square-Enix's other franchises are concerned I've found some literary value, or archetypes that don't completely appeal to their cliches in the most basic and mundane of ways.

The problem is that KH is a veritable smorgasbord of cliches, with only a handful of memorable areas (Mulan's in KH2 for instance), and extremely poor characterisation (hi there Roxas). It's based entirely around the appeal to popularity, a trend that can be excused in one regard as "making business sense", but on the other hand has given us products like Guitar Hero on the DS (really pointless), and just about every game based off a movie or television franchise (hi there, Batman Returns).

The part at the beginning of KH2, where the thief steals "not only ____ but the word ____ too", made me wanna vomit. I couldn't recover from that.
 
I think that was the first time I've ever quit a game that I bought within the first twenty minutes of playing. Waste of time, waste of money.

Well you all can shove it cuz I love KH :P. I'm pretty sure Pat does as well considering he gave KH2 an editor's choice, which I would have done the same.

Well, regardless of quality, people eat KH up. I'd say Sony needs KH3 to be exclusive instead of multiplat, or at least a timed exclusive.
