Otaku Dome's Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix Review:
Kingdom Hearts finally gets the HD remaster fans have been wanting since the craze started, but does it preserve the franchise’s critical acclaim? Read our review below.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX is an HD compilation game containing HD gameplay and cinematics of Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hreats Re: Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days. It is available exclusively on the PlayStation 3.
THE GOOD: Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix gives fans exactly what they’ve been asking for, an HD retelling of the original game, while also adding an HD remake of Re: Chain of Memories, and a near 3 hour cinematic of 358/2 Days. However it’s not the original version of Kingdom Hearts which is included, but instead the once Japanese exclusive Final Mix version, which was believed to never see the light of day outside of it’s original home. The Final Mix version of Kingdom Hearts includes tougher enemies, extra items (including an exclusive key blade), and a new boss fight which connects the game to the other entries included in the compilation.
