Storyline

The sequel to one of the most popular RPG games "Kingdom Hearts." This time on Gamboy advanced. The story immediately picks up where you left off in the last game traveling the road in search of Riku and King Mickey. Sora, the protagonist of the story, along with his buddies Donald and Goofy, are on a quest to restore peace, rid the world of darkness, and above all find their friends. Sora comes to a fork in the road and is confronted by a mysterious man in a black cloak. The "Egnimatic Man" warns Sora "Ahead lies something you need, but to claim it, you must lose something dear." Sora and the gang are then lead to Castle Oblivion, where they revisit worlds, old friends who have forgotten them, and slowly lose their own memories as well. In this quest, one question has yet to be answered: What will Sora gain, and what will he lose? Written by RA

Absolutely Brilliant!
3 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

When I first saw that there was a Kingdom Hearts game for Gameboy Advanced, I said "Oh that's cool" and went about my business, thinking it was some random unnecessary game that Square had pumped out to earn a few extra bucks. Then I learned that the plot to it is actually rather essential to the second game, so I decided to pick it up and give it a try.

Wow. That's all I can say. I was blown away by the intelligence of the plot I was witnessing. There were so many twists and turns, and it really kept me guessing up until the spectacular conclusion (both of them). What's even more impressive is how well developed all the characters are. The members of the Organization each have their own distinct personalities and cease to be mere stereotypes that are all too often the villains of gameboy games. You truly cared about their existence, and it was always a major accomplishment if you took one of them down.

The gameplay itself is fairly creative, and a great adaptation to the GameBoy system. The card system allows one to pull off a plethora of attacks, and building your deck really takes quite a bit of strategy to do correctly. The only negative that I really see is that all the rooms you travel through really have more or less the same layout, so that can get a little repetitive. But, being the movie buff that I am, plot line matters more to me than anything. I more than got what I was looking for - it's a shame Kingdom Hearts II didn't have plot and character development this good...

A must play for all Kingdom Hearts fans.
