Things I love:

1. The characters. Sora is perfect here, Marluxia is mysteriously menacing, Axel is a snarky sarcastic douchebag and I love it, Jiminy is great, Donald and Goofy are wonderful as usual, and the Riku Replica is incredible always. Also, on Riku's side, Zexion had some enjoyable scenes, and Lexaeus is freaking great at being the stoic, dangerous powerhouse that we know him as

2. The gameplay. I love strategic games and melding in general, so the fact that I got both of it here made me very happy. We got an early form of command melding early on with the implementation of slates, and the strategy in the game (in my opinion) was wonderful. I know people don't like it because they don't like working for their prize, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

3. The story. This is perfect as well. Easily on my top 2 stories.

If I had one major complaint, it's that Reverse/Rebirth's Disney world's were bland, boring, and generally unappealing. They were completely devoid of life and felt like they were made purely to extend Riku's gameplay since the developer's couldn't think of any clever way for him to interact with the other villains on Maleficent's council. Also, Riku's gameplay was way more boring than Sora's, and I don't understand why people consider it the superior version of the battle system.

Although I concede this point regarding Reverse Rebirth, it was still cool to be able to play as Riku/someone besides Sora and experience the CoM with new events and fight Org members we didn't get to fight as Sora. Other than that, I liked RR's gameplay, and I think Re: added more to it.

I like both the original and re:CoM. Some of the voices are not exactly what I imagined for them (Vexen, Larxene), but I think they do a great job regardless. What I do hate is how they half-assed it by not voicing the Disney segments. Although I will say--for something that was obviously only done to save money--it does add a certain something to the game. The Disney levels come across like Sora just walked into storybook land, which does make them feel more like the illusions they are.

I actually liked her voice. It's everything I had imagined, haha. It's cocky and intimidating. I also like Vexen's. There's something about it that just fits him, haha.

The only time that I disliked Vexen's voice was in one of the bonus scenes from Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, the one with Zexion, Xigbar, and Vexen chatting about the Chamber of Repose (chronologically right when they picked up XI, Marluxia). THAT shit was annoying.

It's a shame that Axel's line got changed from "give me one hell of a show" to "try and make it enjoyable", I always thought that his first line sounded cooler.

Speaking of lines, I'm surprised they kept Larxene's "more pain for you means more fun for me".
I mean, I'm happy as hell, but knowing Disney...

Are you referring to the Japanese, or the English voices? 'cause I remember finding Vexen constantly shouting "ZEXION! ZEEEXIONNN!" annoying in a funny way, haha. xD

Well, with Vexen, I'm not really fond of that voice actor because so many of his characters sound the same. All I can hear is Ken from Digimon.

Oh, hell! It's true! Haha. Goes to show how talented people like Liam O'Brien (Ballad of Caius, Akihiko from Persona 3, Kain Highwind FF4) are when voicing different characters. Sounds the same, but with a noticeable change in tone and attitude.

When you run out of cards to use and the boss is about to be defeated, then you die. Lost count of how many times that's happened to me. Good story, awesome characters, but the cards. THE CARDS.

That's when you pray to god that Pluto pops up! If you're on the right boss, that is. I remember I had Pluto pop up on what I think was Marluxia III, that was a godsend.

Yeah, but sometimes when I get Pluto, either the boss' card blocks it or Pluto doesn't give me crap. Also on my "dislikes of CoM" list.

There are lucky times like when I was fighting Jafar recently. On the verge of dying till I got a Pluto card. Pluto helped and I got some cards at the last second and defeated the boss. I was never so relieved in my life! Shear luck right there.

I remember being pissed of running out of cards, but what I would mostly do was revise my deck after losing, like, 651911456 times xD. Can we factor that as a positive? CoM was, overall, a difficult game?

I don't think I ever bothered using the enemy cards, they took up valuable CP & I didn't really find them very useful in comparison to the boss cards & even then, I thought Oogie Boogie, Riku & Vexen were the most useful cards out of the bosses I defeated.

Same here. I only ever used Character Cards. I liked how in I.5 they gave you Days character cards for watching the movie, haha.

Okay I just found one thing I dislike about CoM. Hunting for room cards is pretty hard. I'm stuck in Twilight Town and just spent an hour trying to get two cards I need to advance, and didn't get neither. I did get to level 59 though, probably will get to 99 before I get the cards I need :D Luckily Megaflare makes farming a bit easier.

The only farming I ever hated was that golden card that gave you access to a special awards room that had powerful cards in it.
