Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix (Review)

An absorbing adventure that’s still full of heart

Square Enix aren’t the fastest of movers when it comes to giving us what we really want. That Final Fantasy VII remake doesn’t appear to be on its way soon and Kingdom Hearts III has only just been announced.

In the meantime though, we’re more than happy to revisit the past in their latest HD collection, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix. Rather than just give us HD versions of the main canon PS2 games, Square are making the effort to bring players up to date with the Nintendo-only spin-offs and region-specific releases. Naturally, this leaves room for another HD collection before KHIII.

So, what’s on this disc? Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix is a HD release of the first PS2 game complete with some minor extra content (a few new enemies and items) from a version not previously released in Europe. Next is Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories (also making its European debut), an HD update of a PS2 game based on an old GameBoy Advance title, complete with a graphical overhaul to make it look like its older console brother. Finally, there’s a HD compilation movie of the cutscenes from the 3DS title, Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, which may seem like a bit of a cop-out instead of porting the game over, but with around 50 hours’ worth of content on the disc already, there are no complaints about value.
