    Yeah, you’ll still have to wade through that sluggish Roxas opening of Kingdom Hearts II, but past that point you’ll have a very enjoyable, and visually stunning, reunion with Sora, Goofy, Donald, Terra, Aqua and Ventus. So I’d certainly urge all of you Kingdom Hearts fans to pick this up, as it does HD justice to two beloved games in the Kingdom Hearts franchise.

    Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Birth by Sleep improved with new combats and extra content: an unmissable collection for every fan to keep up with the saga.

    A great collection, though the lack of any real gameplay in Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded is a weak point.

    Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX is ideal for veteran and new players alike as it keeps the magic that made previous games great, intact, while taking the franchise to the next level with its new features. The bundle also serves as warm up while we wait for the arrival of Kingdom Hearts III on Xbox One and PS4.

    Playing through Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMix, it’s hard not to hope that making this collection has shown Nomura how best to approach the final, still upcoming chapter in his unlikely opus.

    Those who want to relive PS2 days might pick this up, but the rest will probably be put off by these oldies. [02/2015, p.53]

Following in the footsteps of KH HD1.5 ReMIX you get 3 games for the price of one. When i first discovered this series, i started with the 2nd game and loved it. Once this game was released I needed to get it. The final mix versions of KH II and KH:BBS were worth it, plus cutscenes from Re:Coded. Expand

    2 and a half games at the price of one? Shut up and take my money. i'm hoping a redo of Dream Drop Distance as well to finish all games.
    Btw

    Btw It's funny to see people complaining about graphics and facial expressions. It's like if in the shadow of the colossus remastered version people complains about how outdated the graphics are. Of course they are. Those aren't new games.

    Pros:
    - 2 games in one package. Both are deep, and fun in their own way.
    - Reduced price compared to most new releases - Lots of gameplay
    Pros:
    - 2 games in one package. Both are deep, and fun in their own way.
    - Reduced price compared to most new releases
    - Lots of gameplay potential, you can put a lot of hours into this game.
    - Final mix additions.
    - Birth By Sleep was originally a PSP only port. Now available to the people who may have missed that.
    - Returning veterans will feel right at home.
    - HD graphics gives the game a new "shine"
    - A lot more optional content than 1.5 hd. (secret bosses, areas, items)
    - Although the story's are shorter in BBS, there are 3 protagonist. So you can chose from 3 characters, and watch as their paths cross in a 'short but sweet' story.
    - Added in Trophies (although most games nowadays has them, it gives veterans a incentive to try to complete certain task)

    Cons:
    - Beginning of KHII can be slow, and a turn off for new players.
    - Birth By Sleep doesn't have multiplayer like it did on PSP
    - The Disney worlds, and characters can be unappealing to some people.
    - The camera can be a pain sometimes (from my experience)

    In general the pros in 2.5 outweigh the cons by a huge margin. No game is perfect, but 2 fantastic games with more content than their originals for a decent price of 40$ is a steal. So why are you reading this review? There are worlds out there just waiting to be explored!

    Are you kidding me? You should deadass be playing this game right now instead of reading this review. if you're a kingdom hearts fan, youAre you kidding me? You should deadass be playing this game right now instead of reading this review. if you're a kingdom hearts fan, you already know why this is a 10/10/ and if you're not, please play the game and find out why. This is the best remastered game the ps3 has probably ever gotten. Great elements of rpg, action, and adventure. And don't think just because it's a disney crossover that it makes a kid's game because you'd be making a big mistake in that assumption.
