Kingdom Hearts II is the game that will make or break what kind of Kingdom Hearts fan you are. You either love the story and how it expanded from the previous two games, or you just like the combat and nothing more. Surprisingly, this game caters well to both. If you love the story, it introduces some of the most memorable characters from later games, and the combat’s stylish and varied attacks and spells are a strong upgrade from CoM’s restrictive card system. Combined with a wonderful soundtrack, Kingdom Hearts II is a strong follow-up to the initial enchanting entries.
