Mildly violent fantasy RPG is fun but not quite flawless.

Is It Any Good?

It isn't a perfect 10, but Kingdom Hearts Re:coded is still quite good. It offers many different kinds of gameplay types -- action, turn-based and real-time strategy, and platforming, to name a few -- spread out between multiple Disney-themed worlds with recognizable allies and enemies. It's a traditional fantasy role-playing game, which means you can create an avatar (in multiplayer Tag mode), gain experience points, view character stats, unlock new skills, follow a map, upgrade abilities, speak with NPCs (non-player characters), visit shops, and so on. That said, the third-person combat and strategy sequences are noticeably more fun than the platforming elements. Plus, there are some camera issues that prove frustrating at times. Overall, however, this colorful adventure keeps thing fresh with its varying game types, cute characters, and diverse locations.
