Storyline

Sora's world is shattered when a violent storm hits his home, and is seperated from his two closest friends. The storm scatters the three to unknown worlds. At the same time, there is turmoil in the Disney Castle. King Mickey is missing, and Court Wizard Donald and Captain Goofy are out to find him. On their travels they meet Sora, on his own search for his lost friends. The three are told of ominous creatures called Heartless, being without hearts derived from an unknown dimension and are the ones responsible for the devastating storm. The Disney villians, enticed by the power of darkness, manipulate the Darkness to help them gather the princesses of heart, who are needed to open a mysterious final door. Upon discovering the link between the Heartless, the storm, and the disappearance of King Mickey, Sora, Donald, and Goofy join forces and help familiar Disney heroes to save their worlds from the Heartless.

KIngdom Hearts rocks my socks
9 November 2005 | by xoxoCarolinexoxoSee all my reviews

Kingdom Hearts is by far the best video game I've ever played. The graphics are amazing, and the characters really seem to come to life. The play is challenging, but not so hard that you wanna throw the controller at the screen. It's full of so much varied, and the game is very long. The storyline is also amazing. It would be a good idea for Disney to turn this into one of their CGI movies. Also, many celebrities guest as voices for the characters. The plot weaves in and out, and there is an emotional quality to it that most other games lack. Overall, I really enjoyed it, and I can't wait for Kingdom Hearts 2 to come out. This is by far my favorite game, and I suggest that if you love games or Disney to give it a try.
