Storyline

Sora's world is shattered when a violent storm hits his home, and is seperated from his two closest friends. The storm scatters the three to unknown worlds. At the same time, there is turmoil in the Disney Castle. King Mickey is missing, and Court Wizard Donald and Captain Goofy are out to find him. On their travels they meet Sora, on his own search for his lost friends. The three are told of ominous creatures called Heartless, being without hearts derived from an unknown dimension and are the ones responsible for the devastating storm. The Disney villians, enticed by the power of darkness, manipulate the Darkness to help them gather the princesses of heart, who are needed to open a mysterious final door. Upon discovering the link between the Heartless, the storm, and the disappearance of King Mickey, Sora, Donald, and Goofy join forces and help familiar Disney heroes to save their worlds from the Heartless.

Amazing game, but missing something...
29 April 2003 | by BinaryCode1001See all my reviews

This is evidently one of the best games ever for the PS2 in the year 2002. The plot is great, and the characters...well, that's just it. I don't have a problem with Disney characters joining forces with Final Fantasy characters, but I was expecting to see a little more Final Fantasy. Hopefully, in KH2, there will be an expansion in this category, and perhaps make the adjoining of Square and Disney a little more noticeable. But, still, I'd give this game a 10/10 score.
