All your friends are back and ready to rid the world of the Heartless! Get ready to rumble as Square Enix brings Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories from the GBA to the PS2. Join Sora, Donald and Goofy as they adventure through memory to find something they desperately need to save their friends. But what could it be?
A Little HistoryKingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories for the PS2 is a full 3D remake of the original GBA game and bridges the gap between Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II. For those of you who haven't played the GBA version of the game, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories takes place right after Sora and is split up from his friends, Kairi, Riku and King Mickey.
Sora, Donald and Goofy find themselves travelling down a road to nowhere, when they come upon a crossroads. A mysterious stranger appears and tells the trio a message, “Ahead lies something you need, but to claim it, you must lose something dear.” Sora and his friends wind up inside a castle where they must face Sora's memories and discover the mysterious something they need. Players will fall in love with their fave characters all over again, as they adventure through Sora's memories and try to figure out what they need, and what they will lose.
The game uses a unique card battle system that is different from the usual battle system that most Kingdom Hearts fans are used to. Players still attack their enemies by mashing the A button, but the game also uses cards to that decide if Sora's attack will knock out the Heartless or miss. This feature makes battling the bad guys new and exciting.
Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories has an awesome storyline and a really cool battle system, so what could be wrong with it? Nothing! The battle system takes a little getting used to, but once you've got the hang of it, you'll be glued to the screen for hours. Who wouldn't want to play a game with tons of Disney and Final Fantasy characters?
