Game process

Mostly gameplay Kingdom Hearts II does not differ from its predecessor, although the developers, according to them, tried to fix many errors encountered in the gameplay of the first part. The plot of the game is linear, but contains many side quests. The virtual camera basically shows a third-person view, however, a first-person view is also available if desired. Most of the game takes place at interconnected locations, where fights take place.

As with many role-playing games, Kingdom Hearts II there is a system of experience. Defeating enemies, the main character and his partners gain experience. After receiving a certain number of points, the main character or his partner rises to a level up - with a new level, his characteristics increase, as a result of which the character becomes stronger. As in the first game, at the beginning Kingdom Hearts II the player is trained where he decides which characteristic - attack, defense or magic - to strengthen, and which to sacrifice in return.

Fights in Kingdom Hearts II occur in real time. The player uses an analog stick and buttons to run and jump, also in the lower left corner of the screen there is a menu where you can select a command (English Commands) - a particular character action. Using the menu, you can attack the enemy, cast a spell, use an item, summon a new partner on the battlefield, or use a joint attack with a partner. A new ability, the Reaction Command, has appeared, which can only be used in battles against certain enemies. To use it, the player must press a button on the controller at the right time. Certain bosses can only be achieved with a “reaction team”.

The flights on the Gummi Ship from the first game, which became the object of criticism, have been changed. Although the essence of the flights remained the same, the system was redesigned to be a cross between a “shooter on rails” and a “Disneyland roller coaster,” that is, the “pipe” along which the ship flies has ceased to be straightforward. The Gummy ship is needed to travel in space between worlds. Now you can’t get into the world right away: to get into this or that world, you need to complete a mission on the Gummy Ship, where the player must fight with enemy ships. After completing the mission, the world becomes open, but if the plot will need to go through it again, then the task will need to be re-run.
