Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep

About a week or so ago, I completed Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep for the PlayStation Portable. And it was amazing. The graphics are easily on par with Kingdom Hearts II for the PlayStation 2, the control work very well, and they've implemented new battle commands and attacks to keep the game very interesting. 

(From left to right)
Aqua, Ventus, And Terra, are three young keyblade wielders, training under their master. It starts with an exam from their master between Terra And Aqua to become "Keyblade Masters." After the exam Terra and aqua are told to go to other worlds and fight off a new kind of darkness called the "Unversed." Ven, not understanding why Terra is leaving rushes after him and searches the worlds for him, always one step behind. The story line continues, but I wont give all of it away here

Unfortunately I could find no American pictures of a Battle scene. The new fighting system is what I consider the be the best one for the series yet. It incorperates the hack and slash action from all of the Kingdom Hearts games, with a card command system, And not the awful card system that was in Chain of Memories. You can equip different skills, as many as your deck will allow, and level those skills up. My favorite part though, is that once those skill reach the maximum level, you can fuse them with other skills, and add items to give you Exp boosts, Or health boosts, damage boosts, etc. Also, you have an attack called Shotlock, which seems useless at the beginning of the game, but later comes in handy as it makes you invulnerable when you use it.

Along with all of this, the game has three story lines. You play as all three of the above mentioned characters. Each had their own story line, and only by playing all of them can you fully understand the storyline. Also, after the game is defeated, there are still 2 very difficult optional boss fights, and quite a few extra keyblades to collect and enemies to kill.

Kingdom Hearts has pretty much been my favorite series since I played the firs one. But even so, so Far I would say this just may be the best Kingdom Hearts game yet, and if not it would be a close second.

Storyline 9-10
Battle System 10-10
Graphics 9-10
Replay Value High
Overall Rating 9.5
Buy this game if you have a PSP, you wont be disapointed.

Let me know what you guys think! =D

  17. Would you recommend the first Kingdom Hearts games? I might fire up an emulator and try them out if they're really worth it. Maybe then I would be interested enough to get the new one for the PSP.
