So what good is an action RPG if the action part is mind-numbing and the story is dull? Nothing much. From the ground up, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is intended for fans, and perhaps that's how it should stay. Alas, no amount of cutting-edge DS visuals, Final Fantasy lore, or Disney characters is going to save this game. If you're not an aficionado, then maybe you should stay away from this Kingdom Hearts installment because it won't spark your interest for the franchise.
