Is Kingdom Hearts worth my $20?

93 replies 2 views Edited Jan 28, 2006
After seeing various trailers for Kingdom Hearts II, I've become interested in these games, but I know Kingdom Hearts (PS2) is a prerequisite.  I want to know your honest, serious, and educated opinion on Kingdom Hearts (PS2).  I will pay most attention to the logical answers, not the half-attempted ones, so keep that in mind.

I was pretty skeptical of the game when it first came out, but since Square made it I thought I'd give it a chance. I was very pleasantly surprised! It's a really fun game, with great visuals and a really good story. Definitely worth playing. It's a pretty short game (about 24 hours without the sidequests) and pretty easy, but worth your while.

20 bucks is a good deal for the great experience you'll have with this game.

The things that are holding me back are:

  • short length (my friend said I could beat it beginning to end in less than a day)
  • not a "true/traditional" RPG (i.e. it's an action-RPG)
  • graphics turn me off (little detail, disney characters are annoying)
  • somehow I get the feeling it has a very shallow story.....
  • Just how much Final Fantasy is in it anyway??  It's said to be a combination of Disney and FF, but from what I've seen, the ratio is more like Disney = 90%,  Final Fantasy = 10%. 

Will these reasons prevent me from having a fun time, or should I just buy the game anyway?

I bought this game back in 2002 when I was just starting to get into RPGS. I too was skeptical at first but once you pick it up for the first time you can`t put it down at least for me that was the case. I however believe the story is well written and the boss fights are very fun. Its a very good game that I would buy for 50 bucks again but for 20 dollars I highly reccomend you get it. I`m pretty sure you will like it.

You should buy it. I mean it's recommended you buy it (that and Chain of Memories) before playing KH2. Unless you want to start there its up to you. But yeah, it's worth it

I own it, but have not gotten very far into it. I have far too many RPGs to finish as it is, but yes. I would deffinitely deem it worth 20 bucks. I did play it for a few hours, and I found it quite enjoyable

Your missing a pretty good game there. Its quite a experience to play it. Its a very addicting game and pretty hard to put down.
