Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep


Kingdom Hearts is a very curious series; a blend of Disney characters and Square Enix's style of Japanese role-playing games. It came from nowhere back in 2002 to much applause, not least because it portrayed the Disney characters well, but also...

Featuring a long campaign, interesting stories, and amazing visuals, Birth by Sleep is a full and worthy new entry in the Kingdom Hearts series that's worth picking up a PSP for.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep PSP Review


Disney and Square-Enix, two very different companies. One, a creator of cutesy, lovable characters and worlds filled with cartoony beauty and tales of friendship and love. The other, maker of some of the most epic RPG titles ever released, filled with...

Three different story lines to play through ; Gorgeous visuals ; Great soundtrack ; Fantastic battle system

Dodgy camera angles ; Slow loading times ; Locations can be a little bland

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep


At times it looks better than its PS2 cousins and for those still enduring the long and painful road to KH3, Birth by Sleep is a fantastic stop along the way.

The game leads you through each world at quite a pace, relentlessly pushing you forward in your quest to find Xehanort. Consequently, there's not much room for exploration, but this is never much of an issue given the handheld nature of the game. What...

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep


Kingdom Hearts has long offered one of the most interesting mash-ups in gaming, with the hyper-stylised melodrama and teen angst of Square Enix colliding head on with the family friendly charm of the Disney universe. For the latest instalment, Kingdom...

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep (PSP) review


Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, the latest entry to the series, finally makes it to the European shores with lots of promises by Square Enix which could potentially be an?Achilles?heel to how the game will be received. The question is does it actually...

So to round up, conclude, finish and bid adi's to this already rather lengthy review. Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep is indeed a wonderful game. It's lovingly crafted, features excellent visuals and is a perfect compliment to an impressive though often...

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep


This prequel is another fun and pleasant mash-up of Final Fantasy sensibilities and Disney tales.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Review


Yet another spinoff in the Kingdom Hearts franchise, but we are finally getting an original story instead of another rehash. Birth by Sleep feels closer to the PS2 games than the last few spin offs, so chances are you'll feel right at home. And if you...

The load times however makes me regret in being on PSP, a trend that is annoying a lot of gamers. While Sony wants to push their portable really hard, getting big franchises to put key entries on the PSP isn’t exactly the best way to please fans. The...

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep


Anna goes against her better judgement and delves into this year's "good" PSP title - Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, wondering if the magic of the beloved Kingdom Hearts franchise will be there. At least it's got a better name than the silly DS title,...

Bright, cheery graphics, Disney characters galore, brilliant settings and atmosphere, reasonably engaging characters

Loading times, tricksy camera, not so much a portable game, repetitive encounters

Despite my misgivings, it is a solid title that only suffers (as many do) from the limitations of the PSP. There's a fair bit to nitpick but enough of the game makes you ignore what are momentary annoyances to push past and enjoy the familiarity of...

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep


Birth by Sleep is not the first prequel Square Enix has made exclusively for Sony's PSP. A few years ago the veteran developers brought us Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, a prequel that is arguably better than the original. This year Square hopes to...

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep is a fun game that was almost brought down by questionable control issues and a repetitive story. If players can get past a few minor problems, they'll discover that this prequel offers a surprising amount of great...

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep


If there?s ever an argument for there being no such thing as a bad idea, it?s Kingdom Hearts.? Back in 2001, I?m sure Final Fantasy and Disney sounded awful to some people.?? The Kingdom Hearts series found its way into the PlayStation 2 with two...

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep isn?t just a spin-off; it?s an evolution of the series that makes helpful tweaks to combat and introduces interesting new worlds.
