  12. Kingdom Hearts II featured in IGN's Top 100 RPGs of All Time; ranked as number 86

    IGN has released an article of a list of what they consider to be the Top 100 RPGs of of all time. In this article, Kingdom Hearts II is featured and ranked as the 86th best RPG of all time.

    Next to each game on the article, is a short summary of why the game is one of the top RPGs of all time and why it's on the list. Read Kingdom Hearts II's summary, written by IGN Associate Editor Jonathon Dornbush, below:

    Kingdom Hearts 2 considerably ups the combat possibilities of its predecessor, introducing new forms — and snazzy new suits — for Sora to wear. The addition of the Reaction Command in combat also spices battles up, making for a combat experience made even more varied by the addition of the new Nobodies enemies. By streamlining some of the first Kingdom Heart's systems, including magic and the awful Gummi Ship levels — not to mention deepening the lore to stranger, more engaging depths — the first numbered sequel in the 15 year old franchise is still one of its strongest and one of the most fun to play.

  13. Kingdom Hearts II ranked 25th on Game Informer's Top 100 RPGs of All Time; Sora featured on June 2017 cover

    Game Informer will feature a Top 100 RPGs of All Time list in the June 2017 issue. The cover for the issue has been revealed showing the major characters in many of the RPG-style games. Among these characters is Sora, wearing his Kingdom Hearts III attire, near the top of the front cover, just below the Game Informer title. You can see the full cover art, as well as close-ups of the cover art below:

    The June 2017 issue of Game Informer will be available later this month.

    UPDATE: Game Informer has revealed their Top 100 RPGs of All Time. Kingdom Hearts II takes the #25 spot. The description of this spot can be found below:

    { 25 } Kingdom Hearts II

    PLATFORM: PS4 • PS3 • PS2

    RELEASE: 2006

    Combining Square Enix with Disney in the original Kingdom Hearts was dangerous but successful. This gave Square the chance to dramatically improve the concept with a sequel. Kingdom Hearts II marked an apex for the series thanks to its improved mechanics and more interesting Disney worlds to visit. The story was also good, though it started to go off the rails toward the end.

    The Static Arts Gallery series is focused on pursuing the faithful depiction of characters within its 6-inch size limitation. Now Riku as he appears in KINGDOM HEARTS II will be the latest to join the lineup!
