    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]

    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 It's like if in the shadow of the colossus remastered version people complains about how outdated the graphics are.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.

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

    Best money I've ever spent. My eyes have been glued to this and the HD remakes look stunning.
    Even though KH2 as a game is much more linear than the original, the extensive fast paced combat and broad range of Final Mix side quests make up for this. When it comes to this series, I have to complete them by doing everything and I find myself spending countless hours without realizing. Since there is so much more in the Final Mix releases, they have nearly consumed me!
    Its also brilliant that Birth By Sleep is included in this as I'm pretty certain majority of us never played it on PSP. This too, was a perfect addition for a handheld filler. I love the story and how the characters/stories intertwine with each other. The fact that you play 3 story modes (1 for each character) is fantastic. The combat isn't like KH2, but more so KH1's pace including a command system to mix things up and steer away from X button mashing.
    I am so happy with this. Bring on KH3!
    Easy 10/10

    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.

    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.
