    Kingdom Hearts Sucks (But it Doesn't Have To)

    The article is too long to post. So follow the link here

    Having only played the console games I agree that story telling will have to pick up the pace. I wish I could have played Birth By Sleep, but I'm still hoping for a PSP remaster for the ps3 like GOW origins. I know some people will disagree with the article (I do on some points).

    It was about Disney so I never really expected too much from the story at all. Tho surprisingly, I felt the combat as well to be too much action and not enough RPG in the sense that Mass Effect is. And the action aspect of the game was too simplistic with no real depth. I found Kingdom Hearts to be a big disappointment

    Kingdom Hearts has been in a weird spot for a long time. The last few games were made to appeal to the Japanese consumer, imo. Not that I blame Square for that decision, but still...

    I like more action in my RPGs and that's why I like tales of and KH games. The soundtrack and visuals are awesome for KH games. I regularly listen to their songs and in fact am teaching myself on the piano.
    I don't think there is anything wrong with the gameplay. BBS has improved it by a mile (wish I had it).

    I agree with most of this article, except the multi platform part. I just don't understand why so many people want kingdom hearts to be multi platform. However, it's going to happen. What he did get right was third pary exclusives are dead.

    By the way, this thread needs to be moved to the JRPG section. Kingdom Hearts is a RPG.

    I have a soft spot for Kingdom Hearts. I feel that the portable spin offs, although enjoyable are pretty lackluster compared to I and II. I think the series should stay on consoles/PlayStation and just continue with the main story

    I so agree that KH2 was confusing but I enjoyed playing the game.

    Will you just make KH3 already! Man you're getting like HL3 and Valve.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    The first Kingdom Hearts will always be a classic coming of age tale. Everything following is just a pretty, albeit fun button masher. Birth by Sleep included.

    The guy is right that the events in 2 can be a pain to explain, but I understand it from playing through, and that to me is the sign of a great game.

    I haven't played Birth by Sleep nor will I play KHDDD although I have been following the series. By this May it'll be 6 years since the release of Kingdom Hearts 2. The story really was complex to a point but the portable games were design to stay in line with the main core titles.

    Birth by Sleep is Kingdom Hearts prequel that's about the becoming of Xehanort (shown in KH2). Main Villain is Old Xehanort (before his body was fused with Terra; becoming Xehanort).

    Loved the first one, if they decide to on;y do a KH1 remaster like they are for FFX then I'll be fine but would prefer all 3 PS2 games. Birth by Sleep was good but they need to stop with all these spin offs now, I haven't bought any of them anyway.

    I hope that's a face , my apology.

    Just to let you know, you're going to have to play BBS Final Mix. One of the facts I posted is from that version of the game.


    DDD hasn't been released yet and it takes place after KH-Coded. That should rope with KH3 regarding what I saw on that special trailer.

    Agreed. I've missed so many games since I don't really have any need to own one handheld, let alone multiple ones.

    I remember getting a GBA just to play Chain of Memories (and of course, that one they ended up porting to the PS2, go figure). Then more started coming out for other portables and I said forget it, I'll just wait for KH3. And I'm still waiting...

    Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep and 3D aren't spin-offs. BBS is as important as I & II (to explain where Xehanort is coming from and what we'll be against in KHIII) and 3D is an important lead-up to the third game (Sora & Riku preparing to go against Xehanort, though everything seems to go wrong). The only worthless games are 358/2 Days and ReCoded (at least story-wise, though they are not the best from a gameplay POV either). But BBS & 3D could pretty much be numbered titles. They simply aren't because... well, the story is build in such a way that III is supposed to be the end of the current storylines, so something like 3D can't be Kingdom Hearts III.

    That, plus both BBS & 3D wipe the floor with the PS2 games, as far as offering some truly fantastic & fun action RPG gameplay goes.


    And lulz at the story headline. Kingdom Hearts doesn't suck. BBS is one of the best action RPGs ever, even exceeding Squaresoft's own classics. And I, Re:CoM and II (Final Mix) aren't horrible either.
