DragonMaster presented his impressions in the form of a review, and it is definitely a great read! Check this out below:
Dream Drop Distance proves to be one of the most risky, experimental, and unique entries into the series. While on a basic level, this is the Kingdom Hearts formula we are all use to, but there is so much more than we might have expected back when the game was first announced. Indeed, this game brings many new things to the Kingdom Hearts table. Nearly everything in this game works or feels different than in its predecessors. Flowmotion changes the very way we explore the world(s). Combat is fast and fluid, using a version of the command system present in previous Kingdom Hearts games, with the addition of new Flowmotion attacks. Nearly every world is new to the series, but even those returning from previous games have been expanded and changed. We have new enemies, and new party members, in the form of Dream Eaters. We even have a dual protagonist story, managed by the Drop System. All of these new factors add up to create the most unique Kingdom Hearts game yet.
Oathkeeper's Oblivion decided to share his own experience with the Kingdom Hearts series, all the way from playing the first game at his friend's house, to playing through Kingdom Hearts 3D. I'm sure that we all share a lot of his thoughts about the series, so read on to see what he said:
I first experienced Kingdom Hearts at a friends house in my elementary school years. He had trouble beating a boss and wished for me to give it a try. I succeeded and was immediately hooked by the wonderful mash-up of RPG elements and Disney worlds which I had grown up with. My friend sold his PS2 out of frustration so I was no longer able to play it. I then specifically went out to buy a PS2 with my savings just to experience the joy of this game all over again. After one of the best gaming experiences of my life I progressed on to Kingdom Hearts 2. My expectations were exceeded, with an amazing story, revamped game play and one of the best summers of my life. No game has has captured my excitement and imagination more than Kingdom Hearts 2.
