There has never been a concrete date for this game. The original date was just a placeholder. They wouldnt release this so close to Grandia III and they may or may not be adding additional content. Dont expect to see this till Summer or possibly early Fall.

I cancelled my KH2 pre-order and got MGS3 instead...I figure I'll just borrow it from a friend when he finishes with it.

Has there been any news on new additions for the US Version (keyblades, bosses, etc)???

I was considering trading my Japanese version in and importing the US one (to get the bits of the story that I didn't understand like the Ansem Reports and just because the game is FRIGGIN AMAZING), but if there's nothing new I guess I can wait for a deal...

The beggining movie doesn't show anything new really. Its like the summary of what happened in the GBA game and we see Roxas falling through some water. I, however, also refuse to watch the ending movie.

Can anyone comment on whether they fixed the camera? Also, how are your sidekicks in this one (good, annoying, horrible, etc)?

I liked the first as much as anybody else, but you have to admit that the controls were garbage.

Did they tighten up the controls for the sequel at all?

Considering 99% of the US won't have this until tommorrow, you're going to have to wait.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

From what little I've played the controls and camera are pretty smooth. The reaction command is a nice addition and the camera feels a little tighter (turns slower, seems to stay fixed behind you)...

You guys think Target would have it already? Its pouring rain right now and I really don't want to go on a hunt for KH2 if tomorrow would be a better day.

My Wal Mart had a huge display with the game in it today! Too bad I haven't even played the first one much yet.

7.6 from IGN. WTF? http://ps2.ign.com/a...8/698697p1.html


They have the same complaints others have had, namely Gamespot. That the game is VERY easy.... this is also disheatening:

For instance, I managed to make it completely through the game without using offensive magic ONCE.

. In KHII, you can literally pound the mini-bosses and main enemies into submission by hitting X over and over again. (It basacially says there is no reason whatsoever to dodge)

What's worse, you don't need to fear taking damage, because for the most part any destroyed enemies will drop enough health orbs to heal Sora back to full life

Unfortunately, the enemy difficulty level doesn't ramp up to meet Sora's ability, so after a while combat is simply reduced to a level grind.


Here is my favorite:

For instance, I placed the controller on my desk, lightly pressed X and had a conversation with a co-worker. Three minutes later, I'd cleared all of the opponents in a room and leveled up, without actively controlling the game. What's more, because the ability to button mash is so prevalent, boss fights take a fraction of the time. I timed every major fight that I had in this title, and most came out under the five-minute mark, including the final boss


More favorites:

One other hiccup with the worlds is that they feel incredibly small. Other worlds that you've already adventured in from the original are compressed even smaller, with Halloween Town and Atlantica as shadows of their former self.


Apparently the game also only has one secret boss, compared to the first games 3 or 4 that I can remember.

To anyone thats played the Japanese version, or might be far enough into the US version, is all this stuff true, or is IGN being really harsh? I don't remember the Japanese bashing this game like this, so did Square lower the difficulty for the US?

The thing that gets me is that he put the controller down, didn't even pay attention, and still won a battle.

They say that the difficulty level dosen't make a difference at all, as well.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

First post got too big... I'm still buying the game, my review site of choice (Gamespy) gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars, but I was just pointing out why IGN would have given it such a low score.

Gamespy review:

http://ps2.gamespy.c...i/698896p1.html

Gamespy dosen't mention anything about it being too easy, either, while GS and IGN made a big deal about it.

My impressions after the intro portion of the game...

I'm playing through Proud Mode (Hard) and I died a number of times in the Dusk world leading up to the first boss (only takes 3 hits). The first boss also requires you to use Reaction moves to not get your ass torn up as do any enemies that offer them. Of the 3 enemy types I fought, 2 of them had attacks that once they started you needed to dodge as you couldn't attack until they were done. The 2nd boss fight is a pain as you're weak and he easily can outmanuver and counter. The 3rd fight was easier due to the circumstances of the battle, but the boss can still take chunks out of your health if you leave yourself open. I've only played 3 or so hours of the game so I can't comment on the overall difficulty or any of the feelings the reviewer had, but based on what I've played so far, the game seems like it is more of the same from KH, just highly polished and fixed up a bit...

Also, yes there is only 1 bonus boss fight, unfortunately...
