I’ve quite enjoyed the opening 4 hours of this one. Rather than traditional RPG elements, there’s been a big focus on mini-games and character development (along with flashbacks.) Actual combat has taken a back seat, but what’s there has been very simple thus far, consisting of a single physical attack along with a dodge.
The character artwork is very nice and the voice cast have done a good job up to this point. Kingdom Hearts 2 certainly has one of the more star-studded voice acting teams ever seen in a game. Kudos as well to SquareEnix, who’ve finally started taking PAL conversions seriously.
