IGN: Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Review

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep has the best battle system in the series and one of the most ambitious storytelling devices yet; the game's few issues aren't enough to spoil the fun. With three characters to choose from, plenty of fun mini-games and a rich combat experience, Birth by Sleep comes highly recommended.

Well I already have mine, its the best portable gaming device if you want games on the go.

If you're gonna get a PSP for this game, don't go with the...no pun intended...Go.

I have the red GoW PSP and imo, it's one of the best PSP on the market. I'm glad I got one on the first day it came out.

Its almost here I cannot wait anymore.

Can you use the three characters in battle like the PS2 games or do you have to fight using a single person for the whole game?.

Naughty Dog4834d ago

I don't think so. From what I understand it's 3 separate stories with the characters being separated but there's encounters and another 1 character will join you in certain parts of the Story, for example Mikey will fight along side you in a boss battle.

can't wait to play, already have the collectors edition pre-ordered.

Was Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep a Masterpiece or an Exercise in Tedium?

Overall, Birth By Sleep is an important slice of the Kingdom Hearts series, and shouldn’t be missed out on if you’re looking to get into the series. Granted, some of the features and moment-to-moment gameplay is lost when it transitioned from the PSP to modern consoles. But nonetheless, one can’t deny its overall importance to the story and the impact of its mechanics and systems to the series overall.

i like it, but its just too much "friendships are the key to our power" bs.
don't get me started on them minigames lol

i think the game had tremendous potential for essential online gaming and other things. but they didnt do a whole lot with it in the remaster.

i would, however, consider it to be one of the harder games in the series, which is good
