Trivia

Even though she returns in this game, there is no boss fight with Maleficent. See more »

Goofs

It is clearly stated in the first game that Sora, Donald and Goofy must not meddle in the affairs of other worlds. All their actions in the various worlds they visit are to stop the Heartless and other foreign villains from meddling. However, in Atlantica, which is free from Heartless and also not visited by Pete or Maleficent, they have no problems interfering to help Ariel against Ursula. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sora: [Roxas's voice] A scattered memory like a far-off dream. A far-off dream like a scattered memory. I want to line the pieces up, yours and mine.

Crazy Credits

A special bonus movie can be seen after the whole credits, but it can be only accessed if you complete the game close to a 100%. See more »

Alternate Versions

Further edits to the Port Royal world for non-Japanese versions of the game include the following: Barbossa's monologue to Elizabeth on the Black Pearl edited to omit the mention of lust and women; undead pirates not catching fire (though such is still the case for the Grim Reaper Heartless); and the Rifle Pirates' guns being replaced by crossbows (though they still sound and function like guns).

May our hearts be our guiding key...
19 November 2018 | by applemacco11See all my reviews

When I think about Kingdom Hearts II, I think that it is without a doubt the best game ever made in my opinion and deserves an obvious 10/10 if I could I would do 11/10 haha. This game was my childhood, I played it all the time as a kid and had so much fun with it I was so happy when they SE decided to make 2.5 that I actually bought a PS3 (and then PS4 for 1.5 + 2.5) just for that single game and 1.5 of course, can't wait for KHIII. May my heart be my guiding key...
