How could have been a mistake to fuse with one of the best companies out there? And if you noticed gamespot gave it a 8.7, which I consider a better site just because of the fact that the IGN reviewers are very unstable, but whatever, I don't care about the scores, I'll judge it until I play it, but at least tje name of your thread is stupid

WOW!! IM so sick of Kingdom Hearts II and I have'nt even played it yet. Think you guys could talk about this game in a couple threads, not several pages...

As for the scores. I think Gamespots score should've been bumped to a 9 looking at thier review and rating board. BUt keep in mind that 8-8.9 is GREAT according to Gamespots rankings board. So it got a great score from GS. On the other hand the score IGN gave the game probably doesnt come close to reflecting thier review. IGN is the WORST place for gaming news, reviews and opinions when it comes to anything gaming. Now of course RPGs get bad scores from the get go, but there is probably no reason IGN scored KH II so low other than they have no frekn clue!!

Bottomline, a reviewer is a gamer just like you or I except they have a journilism degree (at least the should). So taking reviews is plain stupid imo, Ive never taken a review for its worth until after Ive played the game. When it comes to RPGs I find that NO review matches my opinion; if it does its like annualy. I know what games Im going to like, what games are going to be decent and what games warrant my $40-50. Because at the end of the day no matter what someone tells me or rates a game as, Im the one playing it and enjoying it...

Square was originally formed as Squaresoft long, long ago, when I was a mere child. About 2 or 3 years ago they formed forces and teamed up with Enix who is another Japanese developer/publisher. They had games like Valkyrie Profile and Star Ocean just to name a few. Anyway, after the merger they became Square-Enix...

I do believe that ever since Squaresoft has became "Square-Enix", they haven't had that much success. I'm a little shocked about the IGN score for KH2 though.

IGN is heavily biased. Anyways, if Square didn't merge with Enix, then Square possibly would of gone bankrupt or bought out by EA. Could you see EA making Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, etc?
Please do not send me a friend's request without telling me who you are and where I know you from. Thank you.

Bleh, i can care less what the ratings are, in the end it all comes down to whether you like it or not.
