    Its def. worth buying a PS2 system for. Besides Ace Combat Zero is coming out soon, and not to mention all the replay value you get with the old PS1 games.

    It is a meld between Final Fantasy games, and well, Disney..I havent seen any Disney characters in the actual gameplay...yet, but they have kinda brushed over past experiences with the original, which is cool. It looks to be a LOOOOOOOOOONG game.

    2 thumbs up

    I am about 9 hours into KH2, and have to say it is really good, and definately the best fifty bucks I have spent this year, so far.

    To go off of what Frankie said, the Kingdom Hearts Franchise is made by the same guy that did Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9, and 10. This game is a Final Fantasy game, but with Disney characters. You can definately tell how little Disney actually put into the game (at least these first nine hours of it). I could on for many, many paragraphs about this game, and how much it kicks butt.

    Whew, I have been playing KH2 a lot this weekend. I am now at the point RIGHT before the final boss battles. I am not going into details, but I have found a couple of costumes I want to make. One is a Drive Form of Sora's, looks like this:

    [image=http://kh2.co.uk/assets/kh2/artwork/art40.jpg]

    It just looks so cool, and playing in this form is friggin' awesome.

    The other, is a member of the Organization. His name is Xemnas. When you battle him, try and guess why he would be good as a costume for a SW fan [face_thinking].

    OK, so I finished KH2 earlier tonight. What an ending. Wow. If it weren't for the blurb after the credits, I would believe there was not going to be a sequel. Did not get to see the secret ending because stupid me started the game on Beginner Mode, in which case you cannot even access the secret ending. However, in Proud Mode, all you have to do is clear every world in order to get the secret ending. So, soon, I am going to play through on Proud Mode and see the secret ending.

    Cat, your son is going to love this game. There are even parts where you actually get to play as Mickey and Riku. It is amazing.

    Has he played through the first one yet? Your son may or may not lose interest, it is really action packed, and really keeps your focus. If he made it through the first game, definately buy this one. If your son has not played through the first one, try it. You can buy Kingdom Hearts (one) for $20 brand new, so it wouldn't be breaking the bank too much. These games do take about 30 hours of gameplay, but they are really good, and the story is amazing. Hope this helps.

    You could try Best Buy, Circuit City, Costco, or any other place that sells games. KH1 has been a PS2 Greatest Hit for a while, and that is why it is $20. I would say, just call around to anywhere BUT Gamestop. I highly recommend not going to Gamestop for your gaming needs.

    Rant Time!!!!!!

    So, I went to Gamestop to buy KH2, and I get there right as the UPS truck with the games arrives. I go in to buy the game for myself, and a copy for a friend that gave me money because she couldn't get it until the end of April. So, I go to the counter, and ask for two copies of the game. They were just sitting there on the counter, not doing anything. The clerk has to call his manager to ask if he could sell me one copy, not two like I asked, but one. The manager says they have fifteen copies that had not been reserved, so the clerk grabs me two and rings me up. He then proceeds to chew me out for not reserving the game and coming in and buying the game when they clearly had extras that were not accounted for. Needless to say, I was beside myself. I have never been chewed out for buying something from a clerk (my mom maybe, but not a clerk). Also needless to say, after that experience, it will be a cold day in hell when I go back to Gamestop. Oh, btw, this was the one on Campbell and Glenn.

    Unfortunately that's the kind of treatment you get in most specialty stores, too bad because that's why "big box" store with no customer service at all are killing the "mom and pop" or specialty stores. Either poor treatment at a smaller store or chain or no customer service what so ever. IMHO

    Wow, had to dig this thread out from the bottom of the bin. Right now I am listening to the soundtrack for FFXII, slated for an American release in Fall 2006, and it is amazing. There is a new composer, because Nobuo-san wanted to move into more concert-hall composing instead of games. Nobuo-san has written all of the FF games since VII, except for X-2 (which I don't consider a FF game). This new guy really knows how to write some good music. I am truly enjoying this.

    I also just read some juicy news that XIII is about 80% complete as of yesterday, which makes me happy. After KH2, FFXII is the only other game this year that I will be willing to buy at full price, the day it comes out. I can't wait for this game to come out.
