Kingdom Hearts 2: A Serious Addiction

Kingdom Hearts 2 is the best game to hit the PS2 since Final Fantasy X! The day it shipped, I remember racing over to my local Gamestop to receive my copy. It didn't dissapoint in the slightest.

For those of you who don't know, Kingdom Hearts is a fusing of Disney and Final Fantasy properties. For example, it isn't uncommon to see characters like Cloud and Auron (Final Fantasy characters) appear alongside the like of Hades or Malificent (if I need to tell you who these characters are, you need help). It's both quirky and and highly engaging, something many games wish they could be. Truly one of the best game game ideas of this console generation.


Guys, I think I've just ruined my good pair of pants. I'll be back in a minute. Don't DIE while I'm gone!

Here I am, a fifteen year old boy, playing a video game where two of the games strongest warriors are Donald and Goofy. Call me crazy, but I love every minute of it. Addiction has a new name, and it's "Kingdom Hearts". It's just soooo darn cute!


And over there is the "All You Can Eat Buffet"! We hope your stay at "Pala Casino and Resort" will be a pleasent one.

I've beaten the game three times, and am currently on my fourth playthrough (apparently I have nothing better to do). As if you didn't need further proof that I was a geek. Well, I could throw in the fact that I got kinda emotinal during the game's ending (which was beautiful, by the way). Whoops... too late!


Wow, that's quite a sword you've got there. What kind of polish do you use on that thing?

My favorite level has to be the "Pirates of the Carribean" world. Seriosuly, there is nothing cooler then kickin butt and takin names alongside Captain Jack Sparrow (who sounds more like some random guy pulled off the street then Johnny Depp). Now, if only real life was more like Kingdom Hearts. Then the world would be a better place!

I think we've got the coolest lawn ornement in the block! And you wanted to get a Garden Gnome!!

In conclusion, I'm still a huge geek. Till next time!

You should totally play it, it's amazing!!

Wow, I'm disagreeing with you alot lately... I truly did not like KH2. The gameplay, yes that is very addictive, which is why I plan on getting FF:XII(almost the exact same knid've gameplay from what I've heard). However, the game was way too short, and the story needed more to it. The Organization had potential to be the greatest vilains since Darth Vader, but that potential was wasted, since these characters had little character development. However, I do agree with you that the PotC world was the best, it was fun, and it was alot like the movie. BTW, did you get the secret ending yet??

as i said in my last comment (that disappeared) *no problem btw* lol

im about to finnish the game, and yes PoTC is the best world in the game *-* i just love it.

and i really have to say this... i already disliked winnie pooh, now i just cant stand it, i enjoyed making their friends suffer in that last page (the cave)and of course i will never let them find winnie again mwahaha im bad... (unless of course i begin a new game, then i had to find it, but whatever...)

did i make any sense??

take care ;)

Okay, I'll just say this Shadowjak. How can you say that you truly disliked a game when you admit that the gameplay is both fun and addictive. I mean, isn't that what video games are all about (I personally liked the story as well, far more gripping then the first). I agree with the fact that the Organization could've used some work, but alot of the development was in Chain of Memories.

Kaleb Stewart said...

Yes, you made perfect sense Dark Lady.

shadowjak said...

Outside of a GTA game, not true. Games need a story to backup the gameplay, and viceversa. Without both, the game seems incomplete. And I agree that story was a bit more gripping than the first one, but once it ended, it seemd they took the easy way out on alot of things, and it could've been alot better. As for the Organization, the group itself had alot of character development, but each individual member just appeared, and then died... like Xaldin, Luxord, Xigbar. Well that's my opinion anyway...

By the way, nice captions, I couldn't stop laughing after I read the first one.

rikusgamer said...

Haha, oh and I forgot to say...I love your captions on the KH2 pics!!! Hilarious! XD

Kaleb Stewart said...

LOL, well I assume that the creator of a Kingdom Hearts dub would be a Kingdom Hearts fan. Yeah, I think Kingdom Hearts is now my favorite video game series (besides Final Fantasy).

Oh my goodness, I need to check on the group (I feel so bad now, since I was the one who created it in the first place).
