Did anyone else kinda get annoyed by all the white in COM/RECOM? The walls, floor, everything hurt my eyes a ton! And this fall I'm gonna experience all that white again in HD? Challenge Accepted!

Didn't bother me. In fact I loved it for some reason. Everything being all white kinda gave you the feel that you was really wandering into oblivion.

Yeah, I loved Castle Oblivion's design as well. Made it feel somewhat disorienting, which is probably what they were going for considering the plot of the game.

I pretty much agree with you; it does really give off the vibe that you're walking into oblivion. It was a nice change from all those multiple colors we keep seeing in KH1. xD

Nope, didn't bother me at all.

With what little color there was in Com/Re:CoM it helped the characters stand out more when they came running into a room and give them our undivided attention.

It also gives more depth to the story as well. White and black make up the organization for what it is too. :D

I think the all-white aesthetic fits Castle Oblivion thematically.

It never bothered me in either version; I think they did a good job of keeping enough color on the screen to balance it out.

I thought it was fine in the GBA version. As for the PS2 version I can see how it would strain your eyes, but I've never played it so I wouldn't know. It looks so pretty though~

Are you playing in the dark, cuz in dim light it's bright but my eyes adjust.

I can't imagine what bright scenes in a movie would do to you; especially in a movie theatre.


To cover all my bases, I'll say that I don't intend to be rude. I for one like all the white. Especially since its not all one shade in any shot. There is enough color in the characters to balance it out.

It was eerie and did sometimes get annoying/creepy, but as others have said, I think it fits with the whole idea of Castle Oblivion.

I think the white gave us a nice break from all of the dark-like areas from the first game.
