I like that we completely trust just some random woman clad in black.
Here’s Part 2 of my playthrough of “Kingdom Heart: Birth By Sleep Final Mix” from Square Enix on the PlayStation 3 as part of “Kingdom Heart HD 2.5 ReMIX.”
And so we begin our “Kingdom Hearts” series playthrough! The goal is to get through all the “Kingdom Hearts” games available through the HD releases, “Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX” and “Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX.” Those games include “Birth By Sleep,” “Kingdom Hearts Final Mix,” “Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories,” “Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days” (as a cinematic), “Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix” and “Kingdom Hearts: Re:coded” (as a cinematic). Note: “Kingdom Hearts: 3D (Dream Drop Distance)” wasn’t included and won’t be played here.
“Birth By Sleep” is a prequel to the first “Kingdom Hearts” game, taking place 10 years prior. Like the other games in the series, the player progresses through a collection of various worlds, based on various locales from the Disney animated features canon: Dwarf Woodlands from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Enchanted Dominion from Sleeping Beauty, Castle of Dreams from Cinderella, Olympus Coliseum from Hercules, Deep Space from Lilo & Stitch, Neverland from Peter Pan, and Mysterious Tower from Fantasia. The game also features various new worlds specially created for the series by Square Enix such as the Land of Departure and Radiant Garden. Disney Town, which is the town that surrounds the castle grounds of Disney Castle, serves as the game’s minigame world. Worlds such as Destiny Islands and Castle Oblivion also appear in the form of cutscenes, while the 100 Acre Wood from the Winnie the Pooh franchise, which had appeared in most other games of the series, only appears as a Command Board in “Birth by Sleep.”
The three main characters are Terra, Aqua and Ventus, a trio of apprentice Keyblade-wielders under Master Eraqus who aspire to become Masters themselves. Another Keyblade Master, Xehanort, and his apprentice, Vanitas, serve as the game’s antagonists. As with the Heartless in “Kingdom Hearts” and the Nobodies in “Kingdom Hearts II,” “Birth by Sleep” introduces a new type of enemy: the Unversed, fledgling emotions that are “not well-versed in their own existences” and feed on negativity.
This will be a full playthrough with a review at the end.
