And unless I'm blind, dumb, or both, is there any way to exit to the main menu while playing the 1st game without holding the PS button and exiting game then restarting?

 

Hold L1+L2+R1+R2+Select+Start and the game soft resets to New/Load/Back main menu. Selecting Back should bring up the 3 game list options.

Just started the game today and the HD remake did they on this game is amazing. Probably one of the best HD remake I seen. Also did anyone else noticed at the beginning that Cinderella is a brunette?

Dammit. Why did I start Graces f last week? And why did this have to come out a week before GTA5? And why does GTA5 have to come out 2 weeks before my CPA exam? And why is my CPA exam a week before I start work?

Are the reaction commands as annoying as they were in KH2?

 

From what I understand they just replaced the bottom field menu option with the triangle button (which is fine).

I just finished Kingdom Hearts 1 and while I enjoyed it, I forget how boring the game is at times.  Each world(expect Hollow Bastion) is literally just run to an area trigger a cut-scene, run to another area to trigger another cut-scene, rinse and repeat until boss.  I actually fell asleep a couple of times while playing it.

 

With that being said I still think its a better jrpg then everything released this gen. I don't understand why japanese developers dont make jrpgs like this anymore. One with a very original concept, is so unique that there is really nothing else like it, and doesn't play like a SNES game.

From what I understand they just replaced the bottom field menu option with the triangle button (which is fine).

I haven't seen a single reaction command in battle that I can think of, and I'm past 1st visit to Hollow Bastion. It's just used to talk to people, open chests, read signs, click environment levers (still attack with keyblade on certain things). Did you really have to press up (or down down down) then X to open a chest in KH1? I don't remember since last KH I played was a replay of KH2 recently, so I'm hazy. If true, this is so much better.

The only downside I'm seeing as I play the game is: The camera. Turn off auto camera or you'll have a seizure. It does not work well, but at least we can now use the R stick instead of L2+R2 to rotate. It still gets caught on stuff often, and sometimes tries to go around the object the opposite way you're pressing the R stick which can be frustrating.

The battle system is "ok", but playing KH1 HD just reminds me how much more I want KH2 HD. I keep getting duplicate worlds mixed up from both games, like no Christmas event. Thank god no music rhythm from crab. I love the 1st game, but for how much I like it I like KH2 3x more :)

So now I'd like to talk about "Final Mix". I'm so happy we finally get Final Mix version here, but wow some things threw me off (my hazy KH1 memory). The White Mushrooms don't beg for a cure anymore, they do push-ups, heh. And the Gravity ones? Be prepared for a laugh, then a "I have to do what?!". Lots of new (hard) enemies that you can't just smash and slash but have actual strategy. The extra cutscenes are cool and I don't care that they aren't voiced because bringing back a localization voicecast 11 year later sounds not possible. Cool addition that helps fill in some story and character development aspects, but am I wrong or is there not that many added scenes overall?

I think KH 2 is a big step down. It's prettier and has cool transformations... but the gameplay is less deliberate and more showy (if that makes sense).

 

The original is a true spiritual successor to Secret of Mana IMO. I hate the fact that the worlds are devoid of NPCs but the game itself is awesome.

 

Yes you did have to use the menu to open chests.
