I've seen people talk about KH1 being harder than KH2, not true. It the abilities that make it easier. I did a experiment, and took of every ability that was not in KH1. That includes growth abilities, guard break, explosion, aerial finish. Or any abilities that upgrade your combo. That means you should be left with the combo that you have in the beginning. I also took of leaf bracer. I used drives but not during boss fights. Valor and Final only. I equipped High Jump after Agrabah, and Glide after I obtained it. I only powered up each ability to Level 2. Also I did not use reflect and the only Limit i used was Trinity. And that was after the visit to Twilight Town the 3rd time, similar to getting it after Hollow Bastion in KH1. With these restrictions KH2 became really hard during the second visits to the world. I think I died more frequently than in KH1. I faced Sephiroth and to this day, still cant beat him. Seeing that I also restricted my self from doing reaction commands that are not required but just do added damage. Try this and youll see just how hard KH2 really is. After i beat Sephiroth ill upload a video of me on youtube beating him again. If im lucky. Oh! and if you have Final Mix use Limit form and Dodge roll to your Hearts content.

Uhh, I don't think the consensus is that KH1 is 'uber hard', I think it's that KH2 is 'ridiculously easy'

The fact that those abilities are in there in the first place are the reason KH2 is easy, and removing them doesn't change that. Sure if you completely remove all of the things they put in the game you can suddenly make the game "hard", but that doesn't negate the fact that when playing KH1 regularly, and the playing KH2 regularly, KH2 oversimplifies everything and makes it much easier than KH1

I hear KH2: Final Mix+ does a better job of making the game harder with the inclusion of 'Critical Mode'

Oh yeah that Health factor. Sora gets HP way to frequently in KH2. look at his HP when you enter the World that Never Was, and compare that to when you enter The End of the World in KH1. Critical mode dealt with that problem, and regularly made the game hard. Add in Exp. 0 and it really gets tough

Wow. I fully agree. I just don't understand all this KH1 is super hard stuff. It wasn't. I was able to beat Sephiroth in KH1 in one month. It's been almost two years and I still can't beat Sephiroth on Proud mode in KH2.

I didn't think KH2's Sephieroth was that bad, I mean there are 2 strategies to beating Sephiroth in KH2 that render him a pitiful excuse of a Boss =\

YouTube - Sephiroth Owned in 49-50 seconds
YouTube - KH2FM Sephiroth 35sec
YouTube - KH2FM TA Sephiroth

Sephiroth's moves are all pretty easy to dodge or block with a simple Quick-Dash, Guard, or Reflega.

KH1's Sephiroth didn't have any tricks like this, you just had to know how to fight him, so I consider him harder

^It was? Because to me, KH1 was easy. It was just really fun. KH2 is fun too but bosses like Sephiroth are a pain in the a**.

I think KH is a bit harder than KH2 it was easier to get killed, and the bosses were a lot harder. Name one boss on KH2 that made you throw the controler out the window, killing the neighbor's cat. Exactly, there are none.

I'd have to say KH1 is harder, but only because of the abilities they give you in KH2. Not to mention, in KH2 all you really had to do was practically hit x the whole time and you'd beat the game. KH1 wasn't hard, but it definately was harder gameplay than KH2. As for Sephiroth, he's not that hard in either games, but once again the abilities in KH2 give you the strength of a god and Sephiroth dies a lot easier.

Playing KH1 for me was only difficult in a few areas because I listened to the stratgey guide *chucks it out the window* Only a few of the boss battles were tough, not a whole lot. Anyways, it's almost like Square wanted to add so much more abilities and power to Sora that they might've accidentally (I'm not saying it was, but it could've) made it easier, but made it harder for Critical Mode in FM+. Without the abilities in KH2, the fights would've been maybe a bit up to KH1. It would definitely be more fun to play. ^^

Sorry for being so late, but I got caught with something.


Guys will you take it easy, It's all about opinion, that's why everyone is different, no one can force you to believe what they say.

For me, it's Sephiroth on Proud mode. Kudos to all you who can beat him without getting hit.
