Best Kingdom Hearts Games

The Top Ten

1 Kingdom Hearts II Kingdom Hearts II Product Image

This is my second favorite game of all time and favorite KH game ever. This game just blew me away. I'm not talking about the beginning with Roxas; I'm talking about when the game REALLY begins. First off the graphics are beautiful and still are to this day. The animation is better than most games and it's overall well done. Also the controls in my opinion are perfect. The platforming is actually good and the fighting is spot on. I don't care what you people say; the difficulty was NOT too easy, it was just right. I played and beat this game on proud mode, how about you? The story was very well done. This game almost made me cry in some parts and there were plenty of plot twists. I'm still shocked at how good Disney did on the story. And finally one of the very best parts of the game if not the best part: the music. The music is absolutely beautiful. I love it, I love it, I love it. Don't hate on me for this, but I think that this game has the best soundtrack in ANY game. It's just so ...more

Best game in history, I'm done. Please just put this game at number one, it's impossible for it not to be the best game, it allowed for the player to choose many modes and just destroyed everything, it made you insanely OP at then end which made it even more fun.

Kingdom Hearts is the best game series I ever played. KH2 is the best because of the mixture of the amazing action and storyline. The forms are pretty awesome. I loved the rest in the series, but this one is the best game ever!

The best gameplay, some of the best music, an action-packed, ever shifting story with the best character in the series being introduced, as well as some phenomenal extra content for the final mix/.5 editions. Can't recommend this and the 1.5 + 2.5 bundle enough, really. Excellent, excellent game.

2 Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Product Image

Shame it was on psp, cause this game easily had the most interesting story, characters and environments, amazing soundtrack, insane graphics for a mobile game, and totally balanced gameplay that was a blast in multiplayer too. The single player campaign is stuffed with secrets and hidden endings and the like that keeps you going for hours. And you don't have to know anything about the previous games to get into it.

The best game in the series. Aqua, Ven and Terra, at least to me, are a better trio than Sora/Riku/Kairi and Axel/Roxas/Xion because of a multitude of reasons, the most important being they ALL played a crucial role in the story itself. The story was amazingly powerful and moving for a non numbered game and brought many emotions to the surface, be it joy, sadness or the feeling of helplessness. I myself cried in multiple points during the narrative, especially during Aquas story and the Last Episode. The two main antagonists are amazing and well crafted, Xehanort portraying the perfect puppet master while Vanitas acts as the somewhat unbalanced enforcer. The gameplay is better than every other game in the series by far and flows perfectly. I just... This game is amazing and deserves the top spot.

I feel like this is the best kingdom hearts game cause from every other one they had a "happy ending". In this game it was very dark and felt like a great prequel to the series. The only problems that the game kinda slow story and doesn't really get good to the end.

I think this game is the best because of it's maturity, by far the best villain, and three of the most deeply moving stories that Kingdom Hearts has offered!

3 Kingdom Hearts Kingdom Hearts Product Image

This is the game that started it all. This is the game that defined my childhood. This is the game that led us on the start of an unforgettable journey. In my opinion, the original Kingdom Hearts is the best in the franchise (with KH2 being my second favorite). The best thing about it was it's ability to keep everything simple yet clean (see what I did there? ) from the story to the gameplay, the original KH built on the foundation on making everything really straightforward, but really fun at the same time (something that the series has driven away from (not that the series isn't good anymore)). Now of course, the story may be very simple compared to the others, and isn't that deep, but it still is certainly really good, and has those "oh my gosh! " moments that made you love the game even more. I'll admit, the combat has a LOT of issues here and there, but the amount of great content the game has to offer will make you overlook those issues, and make you craving and wanting to jump ...more

There's something so pure about the first Kingdom Hearts game that I can't really put into words. Maybe part of it is just the nostalgia I have for it, seeing as how I'd played a decent chunk of it a few years back and the rest this year, but KH 1 has something so great to it that I don't think a single game in the series aside from this one has ever captured. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy when I think about it... It's so simple and clean, too. It's almost like a fairy tale. It's wonderful, it really is.

In my opinion, this game is the best Kingdom Hearts game. It is the most Disney-centered game in the series. It has a simple plot, but a good one. A main part of plot is focused around defeating the Disney villains who are trying to kidnap Disney princesses. The Disney worlds are amazing. As a Disney fan, I feel like this game brings out the most Disney, which is why it is my favorite Kingdom Hearts game.

Although Birth By Sleep is a close runner up, the first Kingdom Hearts is unparalleled in its execution. The sense of awe and wonder, the powerful emotional resonance, and the nostalgic quest through classic worlds all added up to an unforgettable gaming experience. I cried real tears at the end, both times I played it. Kingdom Hearts is truly one of a kind.

4 Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Product Image

This game is awesome it the only one I have at the moment I'm saving up for the next one recoded I love it it funny cool and great all at the same time amazing!

358/2 Days probably has probably the most impactful storyline, because if you've played KH2 you know what must become of our leads and it truly feels like its own Tragedy. You really grow to sympathize and understand the characters, this is especially true for Axel, who is probably one of the more well-liked persons of the series. The situation and characters really make this game memorable and its nice to actually have the leads sit down, talk, and joke around with each other throughout the entire game.

This game was so emotion for me and when I get emotion and bawl my eyes out I love games even more. There was so much feeling in this game and always will stand as the best kingdom hearts game in story line and in character (their reactions are perfect)

I'm looking forward to buying kh 1.5 for the cutscenes

I really loved this game, and in my opinion this game has the best storyline in any kingdom hearts game so far.
The amount of emotions I felt in this game are to hard to describe, and that fight against xion is just AMAZING!

5 Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance Product Image

Dream Drop Distance serves as my latest top 3 favorite game in the series. I really love the new worlds, especially Symphony of Sorcery but I wish that the creators would utilize more segments into the world than just half from the movie. The outcome in the game is quite unexpected. The inclusion of the Flowmotion system really enhances the 3DS experience.

It was just Riku and Sora working together and it was amazing. The soundtrack and game play was beautiful

This game is most definitely the best of them all. The Flowmotion was amazingly done. It really changed up the play style while still keeping it fun. I loved how you could play as both Sora and Riku. The story was one of the best in the series too.

Every disney world in this game is interesting and necessary, which makes this game standout as the best for me.

6 Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories Product Image

This was a great game! It has a great storyline as expected and fairly good game mechanics. It is also a new mechanic of using cards and having to prepare a deck depending on your strategy against the boss battles and such. It is both action and strategy along with a good soundtrack. I highly suggest this game for anyone who owns a GBA.

Amazing game on GBA. It has a great storyline and fairly good soundtrack. The gameplay is also just as fabulous. It has multiple worlds and great bosses. It also has 2 sides of the story which develops great characters from within 2 different perspectives. It is also twice as fun playing with different types of powers for each side. It also introduces a new game mechanic of using cards. This provides stragetic thinking for preparation and action within the actual battles. It is one of the best games in the Kingdom Hearts series. If you can lpay this game I highly advise you try it out.

Under rated. The card system is fun to fight with because of the variety of commands and I liked customizing my deck. Can see why no one else likes it but for me its basically a guilty pleasure

Way too easy, but it's still a good game.

7 Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix Product Image

A compilation of the best games in the Kingdom Hearts series and includes never before seen cut-scenes for Re:Coded.

Even better than the original remastered graphics on a classic

Kingdom Hearts 2 and Birth by Sleep on 1 disc. The Final Mix versions, no less. How is this not #1?

Likes kingdom hearts 2 but love final mix 2

8 Kingdom Hearts Final Mix

I have this game and it's the best one I've played I am waiting for kingdom hearts 2.5

Its still the best you have 2 games that you can play and one movie who can watch absolutely incredible

Worlds best game ever!

9 Kingdom Hearts Coded

If this was the first game I played in the series, I wouldn't have played any other. Really bad...

How is this better than :recoded

Cool story and pretty much kingdom hearts 1 but on the cool ds

I thought it was good. It may be my least favorite in the franchise, but I thought the gameplay was varied, and the diolauge, controls, and graphics were all good. But the story wasn't very interesting and the platforming and camera were pretty irratating. And it's pretty dissapointing that they didn't add any new worlds

10 Kingdom Hearts III Kingdom Hearts III Product Image

I just don't get all the hate kh3 is getting. I have been a kingdom hearts fan all my life, and I can honestly say that kingdom hearts 3 is my favorite in the series and maybe my favorite game ever. I just loved everything about this game, the combat system, the story, the Disney worlds etc., Everything about it was amazing and I would recommend it to everyone.

Yeah because people who have played this say it's fantastic. Wow. Ten out of ten and it was the game of the year... please excuse the sarcasm

No, just no. Dream Drop Distance was bad enough, but this is even worse.

I can't wait until it comes out!

The Contenders

11 Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories Product Image

Hands down the best remake of a gameboy game I’ve ever seen. This game made the odd card-based combat style make sense " it was fun, gave us a great look at the abilities of.Org. XIII, and it gave us great insight into Riku’s struggle as well. A unique entry among the series & definitely deserves a top 5 spot in my opinion.

12 Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]

This game is super addictive with its pay to win system.
Its gameplay only involves swipes and taps.

This game pay to win system sucks, it will never ever give you a sephiroth medal.
Other than that, its setting's timeline is messed up as it is supposed to be set before the keyblade war. The story is just a repetition of kingdom heart I worlds and bbs worlds.
You even meet Mickey,Goofy,Donald, Alice, in wonderland and an adult Hercules when it is supposed to be set before KH BBS.Maybe those characters are over 100 years old,
Alice is stuck in wonderland forever.
You use powers of character 's from the 'future' when this game own timeline is messed up. Why is there Any Heartless before KHBBS?

The dead snow white apple situation also happens in this game. The heck? This game is like an alternate universe filler of KH series.

Square could've made a port of kh 358/2 days for ios and android so we don't have to use an emulator. They could've earn tons of cash if it by making it a paid app and just featuring the DS multiplayer.

13 Kingdom Hearts V Cast

This is not a Kingdom Hearts game. It bears the name Kingdom Hearts but that is merely a facade
