Kingdom Hearts II to be reviewed live Tuesday

Square Enix's Final Fantasy-meets-Disney adventure set to be next live GameSpot review; subscribers will be able to ask questions via interactive online chat.

by

PlayStation 2's 2002 hit Kingdom Hearts from developer Square Enix and Disney used an unusual combination of beloved Disney characters with faces only Final Fantasy fans could recognize. The highly anticipated sequel to the Disney-Square Enix collaboration is shipping to US stores this week, and those wondering how it finally turned out can tune into GameSpot's live video review on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. PT. For those who prefer their reviews in written form, GameSpot will also publish its full-text review of the game at that time.

GameSpot subscribers will be able to watch the live feed while participating in a live chat and sending their questions about the game to the game's reviewer, features editor Carrie Gouskos. All GameSpot users will be invited to watch the broadcast on demand later that day.

Kingdom Hearts II continues the story laid out by the original game and the Game Boy Advance title, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. It features a who's who of celebrity voice talent and references to some unlikely Disney works, such as Pirates of the Caribbean and TRON.

Kingdom Hearts II is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older and will retail for $49.99. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

I"m still figuring that they would only live review highly anticipated that score well. We'll have to wait for them to live review a really crappy game to prove that wrong. Haha

Why make it subscriber exclusive? The fact that basic members can't send in questions is enough as it is... The MGS3S was such a good experience, I stayed up late just to watch it, I didn't even mind not asking any questions about it, but why make the next one exclusive? This after Oblivion just makes me even more frustrated at the fact that I can't get the subscription where I live... I love Gamespot, I really do, but I'm just mad at you guys. And really disappointed.

Err....only ONE game has been video reviewed LIVE and just because it got AAA doens't mean KHII will.

Hmmm....i cant wait, i have the japanese version and i cannot wait to get my hands on the english version. They better come out with the english version of final fantasy 12 soon or i am going to "borrow" one japanese version from my friends. Any developer that gets tied up uselessly in the throws of non releasing a game because of translation issues should know since english is the universal language it should be done first otherwise as punishment their japanese copies should be "borrowed" between friends.

I think the last video review was great. Convinced me to get the game and try it out. I wasn't even interested until I saw it. This is a game I'm interested in, so hopefully that means the review will be even better.

Yay, looks like Kingdom Hearts II will be the second game that will get a Live Review, the first being MSG 3: Subsistence. I'll be picking up my copy (or trying to find it in stores :p) of the game hopefully tomorrow. I've been waiting for this game since forever.

IMO, KH 1 was better. (on a side note: what's the deal with people posting "I'm FIRST!!!")

I could care less about a video review, but as long as I can read the normal text version, I'm fine. Definitely excited over all of this though. I've been waiting for this game since October 2002, so that's ....... what ....... 3 years and 5 months? Dang.
