Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX video game reviewWritten by Michael Siebenaler | | email@example.com
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX (Square Enix)
This PlayStation 3 exclusive (and Kingdom Hearts debut) includes an outstanding trio of the first three Kingdom Hearts games in a one player, role playing game experience. The games in this collection include: Kingdom Hearts (2002), Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories (2007), and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (2009).
Square Enix combines their Final Fantasy characters with the mainstay Disney characters to battle evil forces from both franchises amid imaginative fantastical worlds. There are more than 100 Disney characters and their familiar rivals and adversaries. Baddie battles involve melee fighting and magic spells.
The HD remastered cinematics look great and the improved controls are even better with a right analog stick use instead of the R1 and L1 buttons. The air battles still amaze while new weapons and updated item locations recreate a nostalgic, yet fresh gameplay. Overall time spent easily reaches more than 50+ hours to conquer all presented levels, so the replay value is high. Veterans to the game series get enough changes while new players will enjoy the improved graphics and controls (***1/2, rated E10+ for fantasy violence).
Also available in limited edition. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX has already begun development while players can also look forward to Kingdom Hearts III, which will be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
