Game Informer: "The card battle system, love it or hate it, returns with some additional contextual button pressing. If you've never tried it, be prepared for plenty of deck organizing and more strategic combat. While the former 2D battle plane kept almost all of the enemies in view, with the new 3D system they can sneak up from off screen due to occasionally wild targeting system. The annoying door card system still forces you to pick a fight with every enemy or risk getting screwed out of forward progress.
In the end, Re:Chain of Memories is a serviceable, inexpensive RPG that will satisfy fans curious about this 'lost' chapter in the KH series and the few people who really enjoyed the original CoM."
