Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Review

 

We were introduced to Roxas in Kingdom Hearts II. Now he's given his own game to explain more about him and Organization XIII.

How many times the average player will check this game out is dependent on the type of player you are, i.e what you think of Days’ Mission system. There is also the ability to play many of the game's missions with friends via multiplayer. You can also...

Square Enix can always be counted on to do two things, to make epic games, and to make countless sequels and spinoffs of those games. This makes for a somewhat aggravating time in terms of judging them as a brand. Games range from brilliant to...

Will finally answer all those questions you already know the answers to

Story is un-engaging and boring ; Gameplay is repetitive

Not as Heartless As it Seems

I am a HUUUUGE fan of KHI & II, but this game didn't appeal to me at all. Maybe now I'll give it a chance, but I'd still rather have KHIII

I'm such a sap. There are a lot of people out there who can't stomach the sentimentality inherent to so many Japanese RPG's, but I gotta tell you—they get me every time. The themes of love and friendship that permeate the Kingdom Hearts series to me...

What Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 amounts to is a strong narrative hamstrung by mediocre gameplay. While holding its own in terms of graphics, sound and story, it loses ground by minimizing exploration and interactivity and trying to reinvent the RPG wheel....

When Kingdom Hearts was first released it offered an inspired merging of Final Fantasy and Disney, creating one of the most compelling adventure games on the PlayStation 2. Fast forward seven years and Square Enix has delivered the first entry on the...

With its confusing title and convoluted storyline, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days has a lot going against it. Throw in some terrible pacing issues, awkward control scheme, repeating levels, dull characters and a complete lack of Final Fantasy, and you have...

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is a side story within the Kingdom Hearts universe. Roxas, one of the main characters from Kingdom Hearts 2, gets his origin story and how he became part of Organization XIII. You play from the day Roxas was "born" to the day...

Keep in mind the game is on the DS. Imagine some DS games right now; they typically shy away from pushing the system to traditional limits of raw graphic prowess and focus on bringing a different or unique art style to dazzle gamers. Kingdom Hearts...

This is an origin story and it runs between some of the games, which creates an overlap as this game fills in the gaps. You see many of the same places, people and things as you did in previous Kingdom Hearts games. The original Kingdom Hearts was...

Kingdom Hearts fans are going to love this entry as you explore the mysterious Organization XIII deeper and find out what happened just prior to the events of Kingdom Hearts 2. Kingdom Hearts achieves a lot on the DS. The new ideas brought forward are...

Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days is technically impressive and filled to the brim with content, but it's considerably massive length stretches both of those features a little too far for comfort. The narrative, thankfully, topples the hollow gameplay, and...

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

 

Ever since its inception back in 2002, Kingdom Hearts has been a staple of the action-RPG genre, combining the intense and fluid combat of an action game and the customization and narrative of an RPG to create one glorious, genre-defining IP. Many have...

A great continuation to the Kingdom Hearts saga, 358/2 Days offers great customization options, fluid gameplay and awesome visuals, but suffers from recycled material.
