Familiar faces and places can be found in Kingdom Hearts 358/2, a game starring Roxas. Can a game about a "nobody" be good? Click through to find out!

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is the latest game in the Kingdom Heart series by Final Fantasy developer Square Enix. As such, you can expect exciting boss fights and an excellent story.


In this game, you play as Roxas, Sora's "nobody" mirror from Organization XIII. If that last sentence sounded like a lot of mumbo jumbo to you, then you are obviously not a Kingdom Hearts fan. If so, you should probably go buy a used copy of the original two Kingdom Hearts game and play through those first. The story in 358/2 Days continues on the storyline in the previous games and can be very confusing to people who are new to the series.


Lights, Disney, Action!

Kingdom Hearts is an action RPG series and 358/2 Days continues that tradition with a great real time battle system that features fast-paced fights with great combos and good control and targeting. The battle menu has lots of useful shortcuts that can help you quickly select your attacks and spells.


The game consists of a series of missions that encourages exploration and action. Each mission is staged in one of seven different and famous Disney locations. There is a good mix of missions to keep things interesting as well as a great customization system that allows you to better use Roxas the way you want to.


On the Dark Side

When facing a lot of enemies or casting a big spell, the game can lag a bit. As well, spells have an annoying habit of taking effect long after you cast it. And, while there is a good mix of missions, the main storyline missions can get repetitive after awhile.


Zero to Hero

Kingdom Hearts fans will be happy with this faithful sequel to the series, it even features music from the previous games! It also has a great multiplayer mode and graphics are good.

    • Fighting the whale's innards was gross but cool.
    • Sephiroth was the coolest! Even if he did sound like Lance Bass.
    • Maleficent was da bomb.
    • The underwater octopus-woman, Ursula, was cool.
