Good little game!

I like KH, I'll admit, but when I heard about this game I was a little iffy about whether it would be good considering previous card battle games weren't all that great. And I didn't have an SP, but it gave me good reason to get one! I had my thoughts that the card battle system would be tedious, but it actually allows for freedom for the player to utilize Sora however they want. The system isn't that difficult to learn, either. My seven year old cousin picked it up and understood it rather quickly. Beyond that, the story was good and a good lead-up to the second PS2 installment of the franchise. I actually have no big complaints about the game other than Riku. When you beat Sora's game you can play as Riku and he gets frustrating as you can't customize him like you can Sora, which forces you to think a little more. Otherwise, this is a solid game for the SP!
