    For as much as I loved kingdom hearts 1 when I was younger, these games are pretty terrible. I replayed 1 and 2 when 3 came out and man are they an absolute mess. Always good to see more “retro” games coming to modern platforms though

      I tried 3 because of the good memories. Made it as far as toy story and lost interest.

      Thanks for the input. As someone who didn’t play these when they first came out, I’ve wondered if it’s worth playing through as a newcomer.

        I would say the story of KH1 is pretty great, it’s just that the gameplay and menus are quite dated and very frustrating to deal with. The platforming is still a bit of a problem but with dual-stick controls it’s at least bearable.

        If you don’t want to play it, I would still recommend looking up the story beats in video form so you know the story. KH2 is where I would say the gameplay really takes off.

          KH2 is where I would say the gameplay really takes off.

          And where I’ve heard from other fans that the story takes a dive off a cliff. So you get better gameplay and a mess of a story.

          I do not have personal experience to verify, but multiple friends confirmed this to be the case.
