    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]

    Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix is one the best HD collections ever released. The collections includes Kingdom Hearts 2 remix and Birth By SleepKingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix is one the best HD collections ever released. The collections includes Kingdom Hearts 2 remix and Birth By Sleep remix. Games at the top of the series. Fans will be happy to learn that Kingdom Hearts 2 remix includes the Roxes fight, something that should have been added into the original release, along with several new optional boss fights that are both challenging and welcomed. Except maybe the Lingering Will fight. That will brake you in every way possible and isn't for the experienced player. If you're like me, when you finally beat him, you will hear yourself saying, "never again." This remake alone is worth the price of the collection. But than Birth By Sleep reminds you why innovation can be a good thing.

    Birth By Sleep has one of the most interesting idea's I've ever seen in a game. That idea being that you can combined two different magics and attacks, or a combination of the two, to create something new. And while Birth By Sleep isn't the first game to use this idea, it is by far a welcomed addition to the series. It is also something I hope to see return in any latter Kingdom Hearts game. The combat is smooth and the fact that you can see the story unfold from three different perspectives, with three different play styles and level designs was also a most welcomed addition to the series. I don't really know what was added to the remake, as I've only played a sort amount of the PSP version. I do know that the multiplayer was removed, and I can't tell if that's a good thing or not. However, it doesn't matter. Birth By Sleep took a chance and it payed off in it's favor.

    Sometimes a game will come along and become the best of it's receptive genera. Kingdom Hearts 2 is one of those games. And the remake is everything that Kingdom Hearts 2 is and more. It offers more story, more action and more adventure than in any previous entry. And Birth By Sleep is one of the best ports I have ever played. I will admit that there is a frame rate issue in both those games, but that's more of the PlayStation's 3 fault than anything else. If you own a PlayStation 3 and are looking for something to add to your collection, look no further than Kingdom Hearts 2 HD Remix. It's got everything fans want, and it has everything the series needs. 10/10

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

    A hd collection for ps3 that includes both KH2 and KH BBS final mixes? What's there not to love?
    This is the first time both final mixes are available outside of Japan. Kingdom Hearts 2 is one of the best games I have played in my life and to be able to play it again in hd with all of the content i missed before, thats just brings a smile to my face. I never owned a psp so I was never able to play birth by sleep. I am excited to fully see what many acclaim to be one of the best kingdom hearts games made.
    Overall if you are a fan of Kingdom Hearts as a series you owe it yourself to pickup this collection.
