Description

  • Real-time battle system that incorporates innovative new elements with traditional RPG gameplay
  • Meet other Disney characters from films like Aladdin, Tarzan, Hercules & Alice In Wonderland
  • Disney characters act like their film personas - Peter Pan flies, Tarzan climbs and King Triton swims, among others
  • Cameo appearances by Final Fantasy characters - Meet Selphie (FF VIII), Tidus & Wakka (FF X) and others
  • Integrated voiceovers, with actual voices of Disney characters
  • Ever wondered what would happen if the worlds of Final Fantasy and Disney collided? It’s an odd concept to be sure, but
    from the most schizophrenic of acorns the mighty gaming oak of Kingdom Hearts has grown. Legendary role-playing game
    makers Square have been given unprecedented liberties with the entire Disney universe and have created a game featuring
    everything from The Nightmare Before Christmas to The Little Mermaid. This is odd enough in itself when you have
    characters as disparate as Tarzan and Donald Duck teaming up, but becomes majorly freaky when Square thrown in a variety
    of their own characters such as Cloud, Squall, and Aeris from the various Final Fantasy games. But this incongruity has
    one side benefit in that the storyline behind the game is by necessity rather vague, which seems to have stopped Square
    from filling three CDs full of their usual New Age whining about Mother Earth. Instead they’ve spent even more time on
    the graphics, and the end result is a quite stunning 3-D cartoon.

    As for the gameplay, it may come as a surprise to learn that it doesn’t actually feature, as all the Final Fantasy
    games do, turn-based combat. Instead it's essentially a scrolling beat-'em-up-cum-platformer with exactly the kind of
    complicated Square-style knobs you’d expect. The game may be a little shallow, but it’s an impressive artistic
    achievement and to be quite frank any title that allows you to magically summon Bambi out of thin air to attack evil
    demons of the underworld has got to be worth some sort of recommendation. --David Jenkins
