Kingdom Hearts II

Sora, Donald and Goofy are back in the third installment (second for PS2) of Kingdom Hearts series. The game continues where Chain of Memories left off. (If you haven't played the previous two games, no worries because Jiminy Cricket have documented the entire adventure in his journal). The trio awakens from their sleep and goes to Twilight Town. When the game begins, you will first have control over a boy name Roxas who wields a dual-Keyblade. He is in town trying to enjoy the remainder of his summer vacation with his friends but he keeps having flash-backs of someone else's memories.When he meets up with Sora, the two learns they have a special connection with one another. Afterwards, the group will continue their search for King Mickey and Riku.This time, they will travel to more different worlds and work with various characters from the Disney and Final Fantasy universes. It includes worlds from not only Disney's animated movies, but other movies as well like Pirates of the Caribbean and TRON.In Kingdom Hearts II, Sora and his friends will battle various enemies including the Heartless from KH1 but also a group of enemies called Nobodies. Nobodies are "Nonexistent beings" who are under the control of Organization XIII - a group of 13 black-coated members that Sora and his friends have reduced down to just half. Gameplay is very similar to Kingdom Hearts 1: you will mostly control Sora with Donald and Goofy helping you out with their magic and attacks. You can use various magic powers yourself and you can use Summon which will call upon the aid of special Disney characters that will temporarily fight along side Sora for a brief period of time. As the trio level ups and progress in the game they will gain new abilities that they can equip. Other familiar features include the Gummi ship and synthesizing new items.What's different is that this time Sora will control 2 keyblades instead of just one. Also, later when Mickey joins the party, if Sora is KO'd he will have the option of having Mickey take over and you will then control Mickey.There are 3 gauges to pay attention to: the HP & MP gauges and the Drive Gauge. When the Drive Gauge fills up, Sora will be able to execute a Drive that can transform Sora to something different depending on who is in his party.
