Read a video game review of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance!

The crazy gamers at Square Enix just packed the coolest Disney and Final Fantasy characters ever into another video game. Kingdom Hearts rocked the Playstation 2 when it came out as an action-rpg. Now, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories has dropped for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance. It has more of the adventure that made the original game rock, and it tells the story of what's up between Kingdom Hearts and the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 2. Here's our game review.

What's Going on in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

You play as Sora, the hero from Kingdom Hearts. All the cool stuff from the first game has already happened so you're just chillin' with some friends when an oogy magical feeling drags you into Castle Oblivion for more adventures. Suddenly memories start fading and appearing, cloaked bad guys are showing up and all the levels from the first Kingdom Hearts are back as weird memories.

How Does Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories Rock?

It rocks in all kinds of ways! It's an action-rpg game, so you run around, smash enemies, collect treasure, earn experience and get stronger as you play. It's also a collectible card game because all the combat moves, even the basic attacks, are based on cards. You build a deck of combat moves and use them to do battle! Plus, all kinds of famous Final Fantasy and Disney heroes and villains show up to help you out or be a pain in that thing you sit on all day. You know, your chair.

Super Suckiness in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories?

If you're looking for a game with a heaping helpin' of lame, take a hike. The biggest problem with Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories is that random treasure cards usually suck because they don't have high enough attack ratings. It's also a repeat of a lot of the first Kingdom Hearts, but there's a twist so it's still kinda new.

Final Words on Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for the GBA

Wow. The cards add a whole lot of coolness to the combats, the story is awesome, the characters rock and it can even crank the brightness in case you're using an older Gameboy Advance, and not a GBA SP. Toss this sucker onto the top of your Christmas list, it's a keeper!
