KH2 was a major disappointed compared to the first. My kids were in love with the first game, and I was too because i knew that they could play a very fun game that had cartoonish violence in it. I bought them this game, because we all loved the story and gameplay from the first, and 3 of my kids, and I didn't really like this game. My eldest son (12) thought it was average but not on par with KH1. The violence in this game is the main issue. They battles are too intense for the younger kids, and for some reason, Disney gave us some PG-13 material in a PG series. There is decapitation, murder, kidnapping, slitting of wrists, beating up, threatening, people falling off towers, etc, in this game. There is more innuendo in this game, but not much. Characters wear tight, short fitting, revealing clothing. Overall, I would say 13+ for this sequel, but my family doesn't recommend this almost stinker to anyone who wasn't in LOVE with KH1.
