Should I buy Kingdom Hearts 1 or 2

#1 Posted by JSwan13 (337 posts) -

I have have never played a kingdom hearts game but want to. I'll probably only play one of them, so which ever was the best would be good.

Only ever played 1. Loved it. Hope that helps.

For me, the second one was the best control wise. 
It just felt better to me, and I might just be crazy for thinking that.  
I recently played through both of them and I did still enjoy the story of Kingdom Hears 1 a lot. 
And they're probably both really cheap by now so I would get both. Just to make some sense of what's going on

Fucking play them. 
if nothing else the art direction is pretty fucking amazing.

Play the first one.  You'll find a way to play the second one after probably how much you'll like the first.

just get both of them. they are prolly cheap enough to get both. if you like final fantasy mixed with a disney art overtone with semi-dark storyline and a solid combat system that becomes better over time and especially with the second one, then you will love those games.

The controls are much better in part 2. But play both because those games are amazing

Both fo' sho. The second one is better than the first but they are both still amazing and it's worth it just for the story.

Both. You know you want you, we know you should.

play the first one.

Both. They are two amazing games which the first one needs to be play first. But you can't choose. You have to play both.

If you have to get one, get the first.  There is no reason to skip to two, besides the better control.  If you play the second on first, the first will get on your nerves when you finally get around to playing it.

You must definitely play them, but wait until TGS because hopefully they'll announce an hd version just like for god of war, sly, and hopefully team ico's games.  But I really love those games so you should at least try them out.

I usually tell people to play the first game first. This is no exception. Play the first game first.

Check the first game out first.  If you like it, then check out the other games in the series.

play the first. i played the 2nd, loved it and couldn't get into the first because of the gameplay. the story is worth playing through both. playing the second one alone got me pretty emotionally involved
