Because Sephiroth has been mentioned a few times already:
I like Kingdom Hearts 1 way more than I'd like to admit. It's one of the few thirty hour games that I'm able to finish in a week - I did it last year, on the PS3 version. That said, it's not without its problems. Its camera can be complete garbage and the difficulty can get kinda crazy at some point - one boss fight in particular stands out to me because it took me several days to beat it the first time I played the game way back in the day, but the re-releases smoothed that fight out a bit I think.
Kingdom Hearts 2 is more of that, but with a vastly superior camera. As in, as soon as you get control of that game, the first thing you're going to say is WOW THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER WHY DIDN'T IT CONTROL THIS WELL IN THE FIRST PLACE before you realize that it's still not great, just something you can deal with. KH2 is also an easier game, sort of. I haven't played any Kingdom Hearts game that can be described as "easy throughout", they all have their moments. This is from playing on the Normal difficulty, I actually can't remember if they ever implemented an easy difficulty. Don't play on Proud the first time unless you're a masochist.
KH1 has the most Disney fanservice. Starting with Chain of Memories, the games start to be more about Kingdom Hearts and less about romping around Disney worlds and meeting the occasional Final Fantasy character. They're pure Saturday morning anime nonsense about friendship and joy and good things and happiness. "Just roll with it" is the phrase you'll need to stick to if you want to enjoy the story.
