Surprised many in the gaming and anime world.
KH is a collaboration between Disney, Disney Interactive and Square-Enix (know for their Final Fantasy series).
It is an RPG on the PS2, and you play a young boy named Sora, who is welder of a weapon called the "KeyBlade". Sora's home is destroyed and his friend (a cheerful red-head)named Kairi- is taken by a force called the "Darkness"
Sora is tossed into an adventure and is aided by the loveable Goofy (a knight), and short tempered Donald Duck (a wizard).
Together they are looking for a light to stop the darkness.
While Kingdom Hearts had a huge amount of critism from so "hardcore" gamers and anime watchers who say "i hate Disney"
Kingdom Hearts has proved them wrong and has become a loved game with a good fanbase. Its a game that has made its permanent mark in game history due to its sources.
"I've been having these weird thoughts lately...like...is any of this for real? Or not?"--Sora

An RPG produced in 2002 by Square-Enix and Disney. Featuring character designs by Tetsuya Nomura, well known for Final Fantasy VII, VIII and X, as well as Parasite Eve 1 & 2, the game follows Sora, a 14-year-old boy on a quest to reunite with his friends Kairi and Riku. Along the way, he teams up with various Disney characters including Donald Duck, Goofy, Tarzan, Aladdin, Ariel, Jack Skellington and others as he battles the Heartless that threaten to destroy all worlds.
While the gameplay was above-average and the re-playability good, many "hardcore" fans don't consider this game up to Square's standards. Tougher-than-thou fans point out the child-like simplicity of a boy defeating the darkness in people's hearts as being too kiddish, as well as making fun of the inclusion of Disney characters, because as we all know, Disney = TEH EVAL!!!1
If people took the time to play the game without inhibitions and enjoy it for what it is -- Not Final Fantasy -- they might find that they would enjoy the game far more than they think.
The game features various Square cameos as well as Disney, including Cloud (FFVII), Aerith (FFVII), Yuffie (FFVII), Sephiroth (FFVII), Squall/Leon (FFVIII), Selphie (FFVIII), Tidus (FFX), and Wakka (FFX).
The original PS2 Kingdom Hearts spawned an array of related media, including a PS2 sequel (due the fall of 2005), a sequel for the GBA entitled Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and a manga series. Who knows what the future will hold fo...
The two above are complete fucktards who wouldn't know a good game if it bit em in the ass....still playing E.T. for Atari 2600 eh, guys?
Kingdom Hearts is a fantastical PS2 game that combines to very different worlds and creates something awesome and unique. Quite frankly, it is one of the best games out there for all ages.
KH2 will be out this december...read up about it in this month's Original Playstation Magazine..or OPM.
I'm going to go play Kingdom Hearts once more and relive its glory
a great combination of everyone's favorit Final Fantasy characters, and everyone's old favorites like Goofy, and Donald... also is one of the greatest idea's on earth
In Kingdom Hearts you have to fight a team of Cloud and Squall.
Kingdom hearts is one of the best games. Final Fantasy really proved themselves with this one*it just shows they have more coming* they are doing great and it also shows they have more planned for the fans
They have much much more to show
A very good game, one of the best IMO, for the PS2. It came out in 2002 and boy it pushed the PS2 limits early on. The graphics are amazing, story is original, and gameplay is increadibly fun. You play the role of Sora, who's home was attacked by the main enemies called the Heartless, and swollwed by darkness. He waked up in an unknown town with what is called a "keyblade" as a weapon. For this reason do Donald and Goofy take him with them to look for their king, Mickey. Sora goes along because there is a chance of finding his lost friends, Riky and Kairi. Unlike other RPGS at this time, this game has freeform movement. As in you can go pretty much anywhere on anything you see, and you can actually jump and glide, rather than stagnant RPGs where a mere bush or slight elevation of land can make a path impassable. There is no loading time for battles, and the screen doesn't jump to another just because a battle starts. Critics call this a kidish game, when in fact it really isn't as much. I agree there is a little cute undertone to it, the story itself is original and not really understood by kids. What other game makes a giant key the weapon, disney characters allies, and doors connecting worlds that darkness is trying to consume? Not a one. You can tell when FF fanboys are crying over it because they WILL mention the small cameos from FF games and say it is popular just because of that. Frankly, I didn't buy this game because I could fight Cloud in the battl...more...
A game created by Square Enix and Disney.
The Story revolves around a 14 year old boy named Sora who becomes the key-blade master, and has to lock the heart of the worlds to save them from the heartless (Devasting shadow creatures that search for the darkness in peoples hearts)
Over-all in my opinon it is a good game.
The camera is very annoying; it gets in your way when trying to battle certain enemies.
A wonderful story line, Thats hard to not like.
people who are writing it's a horrible game, do remember this is a dictonary, not a forum.
