The Problem With Kingdom Hearts
Posted: Posted February 6th, 2017 by Laxan
Now, this video right here... THIS is exactly what I've been saying about this series for years. Kingdom Hearts 1 is possibly my favorite game of all-time for various reasons. As I've grown older, I have to admit to myself that the sequel I loved so much in my teenage years isn't quite up to snuff. Let's not even delve into all the crappy spinoff titles....
Anyway, just thought I'd share. Insightful, if you ask me. And isn't it just a lovely video to share after finally posting my review for Final Fantasy XV?
I know this tackles mostly the writing, but no, Kingdom Hearts II gameplay is not better to me than the original. The combat feels like flying anime super hero madness with less thought and strategy (unless you play Critical Mode, which is irrelevant since all modes of combat difficulty should feel strategic like the first game) and the worlds feel hallow and with nothing to interact with unlike the first game. A good game overall, but lackluster design in levels and combat.
