Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD remix

15 posts in this topic

I have loved many games through out my life but for some reason I loved the Kingdom Hearts series the most. Maybe because it was the first game I ever completed on my own or the fact it is essentially Final Fantasy meets Disney (what with all the damn cameos) but I have always bought those games.

So seeing that Kingdom Hearts 3 is still nowhere near having an actual release date we have to suffice with another HD remix. So I have to ask, what's the point. I know one reason could be that Kingdom Hearts for the last few years was just on hand held devices and doing this to help new comers to the series, because lets face it Kingdom Hearts is a complicated plot. However another reason would be that well Kingdom Hearts 3 has to come out eventually so making these HD remix games remind you that the game still exist and giving nostalgic gamers another reason to shell out money BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOREVER FOR THE FINALLY OF THE SERIES!!

*Sigh* Sorry, so what do you think? Is there a reason for the revised versions of the games to even be out?

Well, KH3 won't be the FInale.  It's, if I recall correctly, the possible finale of the Xehanort arc.  At best, I assume they're re-releasing the series, because a lot of snobs avoided the portable KH games, citing them as unworthy and to make the game available to newcomers during the large boom in the gamer population that occurred during the last generation.  Either way, no one can convince me to buy this.  I already did these god damn Jiminy Journals once and I won't do them again.  It'll be a cold day in Hell before I ever hear 'It's a Small World' again.

I never played any of the handheld games.

Not because I'm a snob, mind. I just don't own a Vita, 3DS, ect.

 

So I kinda don't mind getting to experience those games in some form. I personally think that reducing one game in each collection to a movie is kinda lazy, but that might just be me.

I like the updates that they made to the original; using the character models and camera from KH2 as well as streamlining the interface. Most companies wouldn't go to all that trouble, so Squeniz deserves at least a little credit for that.

Not to mention that KH 1 and 2 are the Final Mix versions that were never released in NA, so I'll essentially get to play the games the way they were "meant to be."

Also, keep in mind that the last time there was a KH game was back on the PS2, and most series that extend into trilogies are self-contained in a single "generation." Starting off with 3 would be a tad disconcerting in this day and age, and most may simply pass it up because they never played the other games.

 

So, yeah, I can see why they exist. And I'll be adding the KH2 HD Remix to my collection.

 

I will, of course, be removing the headphones during the Little Mermaid sections however. Again.

Yeah have it all ready preordered. I love Kingdom Hearts 2 so couldn't pass it up. I skipped the handheld games though because well never had a handheld system so could never play them so being able to play and experience them now is a treat. Plus it's a good thing because from what I've read behind those handheld games, there is quite a bit of story to them that is going to connect in the third one and if you only played KH1 and KH2, you are going to have trouble keeping up with what's been going on.

I'm actually looking forward to this and Master Chief Collection the most this holiday season. Remastered and updated visuals optimized for HD displays, and I can get myself ready for KHIII next year. ^_^

Right now I'm finishing up on platinuming the first Kingdom Hearts game, I just have to beat it on Proud Mode. Then I'm going to see how long I can last in Chains of Memories. I just can't get into that one as much, I think it's mostly due to the combat.

Collector´s Box
30-Page Hardcover Artbook
KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 & 2.5 ReMIX Games
KINGDOM HEARTS HD Collector´s Steelbook™
Disney Collectible Pin Badge
all for 80 quid which isnt too bad for anyone who hasnt got 1.5

It's not bad for those who haven't but kind of annoying for those who have along with the fact you can only get it from their site. I mean come on compare the limited edition of KH 1.5 to 2.5 and 2.5 is just like really? They could of at least put the artbook with 1.5 but I guess they just wanted everything for the collector's edition to tempt people into getting that instead.

 

To me it's honestly not worth it because I all ready have 1.5 plus the fact it's not worth the extra money which in the US is about 30 dollars (both games bought seperately would be 80 dollars in US, then the extra 20 for the other items that are going with it and the 10 dollar shipping and handling).

The CE is well worth the price if your a really diehard fan, since I only bought one other game that came out this year buying this is a no brainer.

Yeah I eventually caved and bought it. Still not happy about the whole 1.5 thing but KH is a favorite of mine and after looking at some of the items you can buy seperately it's worth the price. The heartless plushie alone costs 30 dollars online most places.

I haven't played KH 1 but i was thinking of buying KH 2.5.

Is it necessary to have played the first game to understand the second?

I would say yes, especially Chains of Memories since I remember playing KH2 and being confused for awhile until I read up on what happened in Chains of Memories.
