Kingdom Hearts Discussion (1, CoM, 2, and *possible 3*)

I really, really enjoyed this one--it wasn't half as cutesy as I feared it would be.

I don't know how many of you guys played Vagrant Story, but it had a lot of the great features of that game coupled with 3 dimensions of movement, and I really, really liked being able to actually fight rather than go with the turn-based type of battle.

I'm looking forward to the next Smile

...? I've played Vagrant Story repeatedly. I'm afraid I can't see the similarities.

You're joking, right? It's a similar camera angle, and you are actually fighting the enemies with your weapon. The only thing that bugged me about Vagrant Story, as I was saying, was that the fighting was only in one dimension--you could only climb around in between battles, whereas with Sora, you could climb on top of the big monsters and jump around and avoid things.

The critical shot system was kind of interesting, though.

A similar camera angle? No, I'm not seeing it... VS's camera angle is a tad higher than Kingdom Hearts, which is just behind and slightly over Sora while VS' is pretty much 3/4ths over the top.

The weapon doesn't really play as much as a role in VS either... There are no monster based weaknesses bar elemental, so the weapon is nowhere near as important. There's keyblade length and critical rate I suppose...

I'll grant that VS and KH are similar genres, but otherwise I'm not seeing much except very, very basic gameplay similarities. I.E., relatively free roaming whack the opponent with sword/big key thingy.

Yeah, it's the battle system I am speaking of specifically, not the plot or anything.

Did you notice what I was saying about the Vagrant Story fights being one-dimensional, though? I was really hoping they would do a sequel that addressed that, and I was sad when they didn't.

Vagrant Story never sold well on either side of the border. It was a very, very culty game despite its high quality. Probably due to its great initial difficulty and (to many) very frustrating smithing.

A good part of the KH community has labelled them as "Nobodies". Apparently the teenager who originally named them wanted a connection between himself and the creatures. Tongue

I'm having a tough time believing that KH2 will release in January. If it were to, then I'd think it would be out overseas already...

It has a pretty good story to it, and while most of the game you’re playing through KH1 worlds, as the game progresses you'll learn more about the hooded characters and what they are after.

KH is one of my all time favorite games. I can't wait to play CoM when my friend finishes it and KH II next year!!!

I fell in love with Riku....
I just hope KH2 is better and longer, though I still can't beat the 1st.
ERR!

Didn't they just make Kingdom hearts for the gameboy or something?
