Ah, good ol' Square Enix. Creator of the most well-known RPG series of all time, Final Fantasy, and some other great but obscure titles such as Act Raiser and Super Mario RPG. Kingdom Hearts, made by Disney Interactive and Square Enix, is not as popular as Final Fantasy but it isn't just known by the Square Enix worshipers. This game has some great tunes, an acceptable storyline, and interesting battles.
Sadly, although this is a Square Enix game, this game's storyline only goes as far as acceptable. The game's story would actually be awesome if the story didn't sound like a twisted DeviantART fanfiction. I'm actually hooked into the story at times, but those times aren't when Donald and Goofy(or any Disney character for that matter) aren't derping around with Sora. Other than this, the story was pretty dark although the Disney characters are in it. It's a really creative take on the Disney world, so I appreciate this game's dark storyline. So you see, I would like the story more if it wasn't made for a fanfiction website.
Getting more on the positive side of the game, the battles are quite interesting if the partner AI or the camera angles get in the way. First thing about the battles is that the battles aren't played solo; Donald Duck and Goofy, along with other characters, come to assist you in your fights. If they don't get in the way, then the battles are all-out action and exciting. The controls worked perfectly in the battles, too. The camera was sort of a minor issue in the battles, though.
The cast of characters were, yes, mostly Disney icons, but there were also original characters such as the game's main protagonist and even Cloud and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII make cameo appearances. The Disney cast was both lovable and memorable, mainly because the cast of characters is mostly older Disney icons such as Ariel and Winnie the Pooh. Sora, the game's protagonist, on the other hand, looks goofy. Seriously, why does he wear oversized shoes anyway?
You'll spend plenty of this game trying to get 100% completion on this game. This game is not too short, but not too long, either, and you can complete a 101 dalmatian scavenger hunting sidequest. The game wasn't very easy, but it wasn't completely impossible, either.
Overall, this isn't Square Enix's best work, but it is a fantastic RPG anyway.
