Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix Review
9.0 Overall Score

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is developer and publisher Square Enix’ newest release in succession of the three classic games: Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Each and every game is distinct from each other, but all completely feature remastered high definition graphics. The experienced players of these games, waited for a long time for the release of this latest addition of the game franchise. Alas, the long wait is over! You can now enjoy newly improved Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix!

The three main characters of the games joining an epic adventure, but they live in a paradise island peacefully. They are forced to save the world they inhabit. This game offers a very exciting narration but some might find it a bit edgy, overdone and complicated. Like most of the popular games, battling with opponents from the darkness is present in this particular game. The techniques in combats of this game will more likely get the fans look forward to playing the next Kingdom Hearts game. But first of all, let me give you my review of this present Kingdom Hearts release.

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix Review1

In most of the mission levels, the combat style remained the same like that of the previous franchises. The enemy being encountered here are all in real time so no loading screens available. But summons, weapons, accessories that get the players thrilled about, some of which are unavailable in the game. However there are some newly added features that will get the game’s fans very ecstatic about. The game’s card battle system is something that is worth trying, it is a strategic element and very much unique. Although i am not sure if every gamer will like the idea. As we very well know, each and every gamer has his/her own style and taste when it comes to stuff.

The following are the four commands in the original version of Kingdom Hearts: Attack, items, Magic and whatever the player has targeted, this fourth slot is for that. In Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, command menu has been updated to: Magic, Items, Attack and Summons. The camera, although works similarly to that in Kingdom Hearts II, now allows the player to click the R3 buttonin resetting the camera behind Sora. But as always, this function is the hardest to do especially in the battle missions. It always causes a great deal of distraction and thus very annoying. Every gamer has noticed that, and prayed that someday it will all be improved. Generally, the gameplay has been changed and improved a lot for the better so it gets a bit closer to Kingdom Hearts II and Re:Chain of Memories so player won’t have a difficult time adjusting to the said changes.

Sora is the character that is most controlled in the game, Al takes control of Donald all the time, and those other additional characters do not possess the ability to be in the combat for unknown reasons only the publishers know. The Gumni Ship System is very difficult for others to be understood especially for the beginners. Though it is truly important to travel to each and every world in the game, but some of the characters are only allowed to the world of their own which becomes very annoying to the gamers as they wanted to explore more apparently.

Heaps of positive feedbacks from critics are given to Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, Game Rankings has given 80% rate to the game.
