Kidzworld reviews Kingdom Hearts for Playstation 2 (PS2) by Disney and the Final Fantasy designers. Can celebrity voices, classic Disney characters and Final Fantasy adventure make a good game?

What do you get when Disney lets the brainiacs at Squaresoft (the peeps behind Final Fantasy,) go crazy with all of Disney's classic characters? Not to mention a ton of your fave actors like David Boreanaz (Angel,) Lance Bass (*NSYNC,) Mandy Moore (A Walk to Remember,) Haley Joel Osment (AI,) and more? You get Kingdom Hearts for the Playstation 2! Kingdom Hearts lets you go on an adventure with Donald Duck, Goofy, Chip & Dale and more in Disney's magical kingdoms.

Disney's Kingdom Hearts Game Basics

Kingdom Hearts is all about Sora - a 14 year-old boy whose voice is done by Haley Joel Osment. Sora's destiny is to stop an invasion of evil creatures called The Heartless and he's helped by characters from Disney's magical kingdoms. You control Sora, choose his skills and play Kingdom Hearts with him. You can run, jump, attack, cast spells, use items and battle in real time against monsters, big and small.

Disney's Kingdom Hearts Fantastic Features

The graphics and sounds in Kingdom Hearts are really cool. The characters come to life in 3D, the different worlds you'll explore are gorgeous and full of characters. One of the coolest things is the theme song for Kingdom Hearts - it's sung by Japanese pop star Utada Hikaru. She's Japan's Britney Spears and even writes her own music (plus she's a cutie!)


Disney's Kingdom Hearts Fiddly Problems

The action is good, the graphics are great and the voices are awesome! Is there anything wrong with Kingdom Hearts? Yup, it has a few glitches. The biggest problem is the shooting scenes - zipping through space and blasting stuff has never been more annoying. There are also some plot holes and when you get Donald and Goofy on your side, well, they're dumb. The Disney duo can't fight their way out of a paper bag, they're just there to distract the baddies.


Disney's Kingdom Hearts Final Word

All in all, Kingdom Hearts is an awesome game that mixes Disney characters, Final Fantasy and your fave actors to make a truly cool adventure.


How Hard Is Disney's Kingdom Hearts?

The controls take about 30 minutes to learn, then you can pick the difficulty level.

  • Disney's Kingdom Hearts Rating:


    1I've played through Final Fantasy 8, including the first Final Fantasy game on the NES, and "Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest" on SNES. As a Regular and Vetern player of the Final Fantasy series, I guess you could accuse me of being partial to it, becuase I am; anyway, the first one on Nintento is possibly the best game ever made, and its offspring aren't dissapointing at all. Dull points are hard to find in this series, between battles with monsters and bosses, towns and stores stocked with all types of magic, weapons, and armor, puzzles out the wazoo, and enough play time to make your eyes shrink. If you've never player this series, I suggest you buy them, or at least get access to them right away. If you don't, you're missin' out.

    1This is one of the best games I've ever played. But, I don't like how they blended in the Final Fantasy 7 characters into it, some of it doesn't flow. But, overall, it was great.
