  • … of the Month: Kingdom Hearts

    Kingdom Hearts is a collaboration between Square and Disney, and it lives up to the names of both companies. It has the great gameplay, characters, and storyline of a Final Fantasy game combined with the heart-warming stories and loveable characters from your favorite Disney movies. While you play you will run into familiar characters from Disney and Squaresoft, such as Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Aladdin, Hercules, Tarzan, Ariel, Peter Pan, Squall, Cloud, Yuffie, etc. These characters and others will team up with the hero of this story, Sora, to fight a seemingly endless battle against the shadowy, evil creatures known as the Heartless. The gameplay is easy to pick up, and even if you rarely play video games you will quickly be able to master it. If you are a Disney fan, a Squaresoft fan, or even if you aren't into either of them, go out and pick up Kingdom Hearts. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may even soil yourself from sheer joy.
