Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX - E3 2013 Trailer
Playstation Official Magazine AustraliaSep 8, 2013There’s a wealth of new content here, and it’s all been given the love and care this beloved franchise deserves. Whether you’re a veteran, or somebody who doesn’t know the business end of a keyblade, give this a shot. [October 2013, p81]
Sep 19, 2013A fantastic collection of three of the earliest Kingdom Hearts games and stories. There isn’t a mountain of must-play new material here, but the updated visuals, bonus content, adjustable difficulty, and trophy support for all three games should make a repeat playthrough of the games as satisfying as the first.
Sep 16, 2013Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix offers a great opportunity to live the beginnings of an epic saga. Even if it didn't include Chain of Memories and 358/2, this would be a great experience for all those that missed its launch 10 years ago and for those who did play it and fell in love with its story and characters.

The updated graphics make everything feel smooth and the overall gameplay feels better with the improvements. One of the things I am most happy to see is simply the new action button being triangle like 2 instead of having the attack switch to it. Wish I could actually play 358/2 days but hearing the story was fun too. Hopefully enix will release KH2 final mix with BBS and maybe D3 with it as well.… Expand

PeopleThis game is amazing
I remember being a young kid playing the first kingdom hearts and I get the same thrill playing this remake.
People have said that is the same game but what they fail to grasp is that this is the final mix edition which unless you utorrented it or emulated it, there was no way to play the final mix version. This is the first time that a final mix was brought to North America and it offers so much more to the game. To top it off, the graphics are great. I love this game and though I have drifted away from gaming, there are certain franchises I am still a die hard fan for. with that being said, my view is most likely bias but, kingdom hearts is my most favorite game franchise to ever been made, and this remake did not disappoint me one bit.… Expand
Jan 23, 2014Kingdom Hearts has been all over the radar since Kingdom Hearts II, its nice to see a remake of the original in HD. When I heard of ReMIX, IKingdom Hearts has been all over the radar since Kingdom Hearts II, its nice to see a remake of the original in HD. When I heard of ReMIX, I have to admit, I facepalmed a bit. But my worries were put aside to find out that it the game contained Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Re:Chain of Memories, and 358/2 Days. I completed both Final Mix and Re:Chain of Memories, but I was very disappointed to find out 358/2 Days... was nothing more than a series of cutscenes... What a bore. That took some of the enjoyment away from the whole experience. Anyway, for a HUGE nostalgia trip, I recommnd this game to add to your collect.… Expand
Jun 22, 2017Absolutely loved this game when it first came out on the PS2, but that doesn't mean it's perfect.
+ The battle system is very fresh andAbsolutely loved this game when it first came out on the PS2, but that doesn't mean it's perfect.
+ The battle system is very fresh and innovative (again not perfect though)
+ The story line, YES the Kingdom Hearts story line involving the main antagonist and the Heartless is actually intriguing.
+ The change of worlds keeps the game constantly fresh.
+ Never being actually stranded without mana, because you can always get it back by fighting. This might be the game's best feature, no exaggeration.
+ Proud Mode difficulty is pretty much the perfect difficulty. It's hard but not unreasonably impossible.
+ The voice acting is tolerable and very accurate for certain Disney icons, which is admirable considering other PS3 voice acting.
+ The auto-check points when entering a new area were appreciated.
+ The Sephiroth fight on Proud Mode is intense, and will make you feel like a badass if you win.
- Donald and Goofy, your two main party members, are unfathomably useless for the majority of the game. No matter how you program them, Donald dies faster than a bullet to the head and Goofy fights like an abortion survivor. You max equip them with items, and they use ALL of them on each other within 5 seconds because they stand in front of every bosses' strike zone.
- The item hotkeys are good old fashion retarded. You honestly have to play it to understand. It blows my mind a group of intelligent people thought this was the best placement for hotkeys. Unless, you have three hands or 15 fingers you have to at some point stop moving to use an item, which on Proud Mode can be death with some bosses.
- The camera angles can be ridiculously fickle at times.
- Everything involving the gummi ship is a hot mess.
- The off ground platform hit-boxes that you are meant to jump to are inexcusably terrible.
- The swimming mechanics are so unforgivably terrible. They are so disastrous they should be described somewhere in the book of Revelations.… Expand
Apr 8, 2016This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The following score above represents the value of the overall package, not the individual games themselves.
The ReMix is a little misleading since it is not your typical Hd collection or release. It provides some new content to the original Kingdom Hearts and a few new features. The I.5 is reflective of the package since there are really two games and the third involves only the cut scenes. With that said though it is a great return for veterans and an excellent start to the franchise for new fans.
Kingdom Hearts Final Mix: 9/10
The original Kingdom is by far the most balanced in the series. Its story is easy to grasp as Sora tries to find his friends across several Disney themed worlds. The combat involves the use of the key blade with a few spells that could be used to aid your fight against the heartless. It can be difficult at times but it has a balanced system (for the most part). It will require a lot of time and some bits of grinding to reach a high enough level in order to fight a certain boss. With that said, the bosses are the most memorable in the series which require different strategies to defeat them. Some will really test your patience such as the fight against Giant Ursula and the fight against Riku. The final mix also have optional bosses such as phantom and an optional fight agianst future antagonist Xemnas. One downside of the combat is that it only runs at 30 fps. A game in which you are surrounded by enemies could benefit from a higher framerate. With that said though, this game is still a great to be introduced to not only the Kingdom Hearts series but also the JRPG genre as a whole. If one can only play a singe game in the series I would recommend playing this one.
Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories: 6/10
The sequel though will have more of niche fan base.The story itself is actually pretty compelling with Sora's first encounter with the devious Organization XIII. Along his journey he starts to loose his memories due to the magic of the which Namine who is speculated to be his love interest Kairi's nobody. He eventually starts to use his skills to gain his memories after the climatic battle with Marluxia. The other story involves Riku fighting the organization and fighting Ansem's influence. His story is intriguing as he accepts the darkness within him and decides to use it to help his friends. Where the game stumbles is the card placed game play. People wither love or despise this kind of combat system, I personal fall into the later category. The card based system involves drawing the right card to land an attack or to merely use an item. I greatly dislike this system because it seems that your success depends soely on sure luck as opposed to skill. It can get very frustrating when fighting a n enemy or a boss when I draw a card but the enemy just draws a card with a higher number at the last minute. Some will argue that gives more immersion with the card combat combined with real time but in my personal experience it causes frustration. I personally prefer if a game does one or the other.
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Movie 6.9/10
As mentioned before, the game play for this title has been removed in favor of giving a movie told through the remastered cut scenes and text boxes with still images in between these cut-scenes. The story resolves around Roxas who is Sora's nobody who was created after Sora got lost in the darkness during the events of the original Kingdom Hears for a brief time. He is in conflict with the other members of the organization as he tries to find his own heart and develops a deep friendship with two other nobodies named Xion and Axel. The story ultimately ends in tragedy as Xion disappears from memory and he looses his own after his fight with Riku. The story does keep you invested but it does move in a slow pace. I personally would not advise watching the entire film in one sitting though because the story moves in a slow pace in the same locations.
In conclusion although I believe that only one of the games in this collection is exceptional, this remix is still a good way to be introduced to the series and will bring new elements in for veterans who are not from Japan.… Expand
