Pros: Fantastic Storyline, Crisp Graphics, FUN!
Cons: A Bit Lengthy, Requires a bit of Strategy
Kingdom Hearts II is by far one of the best games in the Kingdom Hearts saga. Not only is the story line incredible and actually very fun to follow, but also the gaming interface and the role-playing all in all is superb.
My favorite feature was most definitely the storyline. Many games now a days have terrible storylines with a few exceptions for Final Fantasy, Zelda, Halo, Assassin's Creed, etc. But this, being a classic is one of the best. Not only does it captivate the player, but it almost gives them a motivation to keep going besides saving the princess from a fire-breathing dragon (the cliche).
At times, it can get very time-consuming if you don't develop a strategy. Many role-playing games require a combat strategy for the bosses; Otherwise you can be easily defeated numerous times, so I wouldn't go into the game thinking you can just run the place and beat it in 2 seconds. It takes a bit of persistence. The game also tends to drag a bit sometimes. So don't feel a bit discouraged if you feel like you're not getting anywhere; There is a lot to the story, outside of just Sora and the Kingdom of Hearts.
But other than that, the graphics are excellent for the gaming console and the music is also very soothing and motivating. Careful not to fall asleep though! And definitely continue the rest of the series. It's really quite amazing to see a company come up with something like this.
