ahh sorry for the delay. I really liked the idea of the different worlds in
kingdom hearts. Kinda like how you want each chapter to be an independent
story.. each of the worlds had it's own disney backround and had its own
self-sufficient storyline. The gameplay itself was meh, but more so than
anything else I loved their delivery methods. Plus the ability to reexplore
places to find new stuff when new abilities were acquired was a great plus
for me, I love the scavenging element.

And there were tons of things to do separate from the story and lots of
mini-games.
