So tell me, which players love Kingdom Hearts as little, much or more than Tomb Raider? Call this a small research project.

I DO!:tea:

Tomb Raider vs Kingdom Hearts?
They're completely different.

I absolutely love kingdom hearts as much as tomb raider however in a different way, and it hasn't grabbed hold of my life's nuts in such a strong way.

Can't wait for KH3!:D

Take it to the Kingdom Hearts thread. Its a bit pointless really, your just starting a popularity contest, and trust me, it'll get ugly.

They're both my favorite video games series, but I can't compare them. Too different to compare, but both amazing. ^_^

Also, there is a Kingdom Hearts thread (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=153658). :)

Is anyone surprised by the fact that the Author has asked whether you like one game over the other, and barely anyone cares to respond?

Do you like Tomb Raider or Kingdom Hearts better?

Simple question. o.O

ive never played KH besides maybe a few minutes, and that wasnt enough for me to get interested in it or disinterested.

i dont think that would be a fan of it, cuz i hate FF.

but these are two very different games; so we mind as well be comparing penises and vaginas.

FF and KH are two very different games.

KH is not turn based battle, it is during real time and the enemies pop out and you sword fight basically, but it;s the best sword fighting I have ever done, the keyblade is sick. There is just so much awesomeness to the plotline, it sucks I couldnt play the past 3 games, however I WILL get KH3.:D

This.

I thought this thread would be closed already but I guess somebody likes the discussion. :/

Games have no similarity as KH isn't really for major exploration or anything. But hey, whatever floats your boat!

How about comparing TRL to TR4 which are vastly different. TR1 to LCGOL which are vastly different.

Chances are most people on this TOMB RAIDER forum prefere tomb raider over othe games, however there could be members who like kingdom hearts better.

I really hate this generalization. Just because it has Disney in it doesn't mean it's something a small child plays, it's actually really hard and it has a complex storyline. :/

Uzi master
23-08-10, 01:28
Well I beat it, even did all the optional stuff, and yeah it may not be what a small child plays but the dialog and characters are desighned as if the player is a little kid, the gameplay is okay though, not that great.

Carbonek_0051
23-08-10, 01:29
Of course the character is designed as if he is a kid, because he IS a kid. The dialogue was not that kiddy either. The game was designed for fans of RPG's and Disney. The KH fanbase ranges from 12-30 years olds. It's a really stupid generalization that only kids would play KH.

Uzi master
23-08-10, 01:33
first of all you missread my post, second it's not really a generalization if you actually have played it all the way through.

it's called an opinion.

Carbonek_0051
23-08-10, 01:37
No it is a generalization, you made a judgement saying it's something a small child would play, when that's clearly not even the case opinion or not.

Uzi master
23-08-10, 01:42
shall I re-word it?

in my opinion it seems like a game desighned for small children mainly because of they way the dialouge sounds/is worded and some of the main characters, though the gameplay is something that people of other age groups would be better suited for.

So characters that are kids + some lighhearted dialogue = designed for small children? That doesn't make sense to me.

I never said because the cast were kids (I actually thought they were supposed to be teens...)

And BTW try useing all the summons, that worked for me (again I DID beat it, and formed an opinion on it.)

in the first quote it was the dialouge and character, not the charters being kids.

23-08-10, 03:03
And what exactly about the character makes it seem like it was aimed at kids?

Uzi master
23-08-10, 03:06
about 85% of the characters are from disney talking like they are talking to three year olds as they do in whatever show or movie they were in and personally it gets anoying.

and most of the other characters are cliche's too.

ive only played the first part of KH1, up to the part where you race to see who gets to name your ship; and i have watched my cousin play much of KH.

it is child-friendly, but its not necessarily targeted for kids only. It's more mature, yet with child influences. ppl might think that its a kids game cuz its rated E10+ and has Disney stuff.

its like how some ppl will think that Uncharted and Tomb Raider are alomst the same thing; when they really arent.

Of course it's child-friendly, it has Disney. :p What's funny is the fanbase isn't made up of kids, I am part of a KH forum where people range from 16 -28. The story is really deep to a point where some might not even understand or grasp some of the concepts. It deals with concepts of death & non-existence. A lot of children aren't going to understand what goes on, and hell I even know people my age who don't understand what's going on. The series has always balanced on lighthearted story with mature undertones. I just hate the generalization that KH = a game for kids.

well I dont know about the other games of the series, but I don't see much deep in KH, wow light vs. darkness, is the heart full of darkness or light? seriously not that "deep".

at least in tomb raider you're not the completley "good" character always beating the "bad" guys

ar first sora wanted to find his friends but really almost everything was about "doing the right thing".

Carbonek_0051

well yeah, sickengly good, you sortof just proved my point, they go helping everyone that need's it, even though they are supposed to be doing something important but there just so "good" they can't leave anything without helping in some way.

Carbonek_0051

But that's not because it's Disney or anything, it's because that's Sora. ;)

KH is much more than good vs. bad, darkness vs. light. It's about what drives people to do things, what darkness truly is, betrayal and making new friends, stopping at nothing, the true essence of power, what it is to truly exist, and to not. The game may appear lighthearted, but the story is surprisingly complex - I've played the series several times and love it to pieces, but there are still many things I don't understand about it.

The only reason that the game appears child-like is because of Disney prejudices, and as you say, the dialog. But it's not aimed to be that way - the game is just tastefully written, without any cussing or sexual references. Besides, the game has an important message behind it. It wouldn't have the same effect otherwise. ;)

But back to the original point of question, Tomb Raider and Kingdom Hearts both are very dear to me, and impossible to compare. KH is more emotionally heart-wrenching and epic, but TR is more gut-wrenching and terrifying.

It's like comparing.....cookies to pies. An impossible choice.

EDIT: okay, look, a game that doesnt have swearing doesnt make it light hearted, but KH certainly is and it's not tastefull just because it doesnt have it. and as I have mentioned I only have the first one and if the plot only get's complex after that then dont blame me, blame the story writer's.

The story becoming more complex is not a low point to the series, however. It just becomes in a league of its own, and not something you could compare to a child's game.

And you are right, it's not tasteful just because it has no swearing. But it isn't always lighthearted, mind. There are some very intensely emotional scenes in the game that aren't at all lighthearted. But most of these plot-twists and developments occur after KH1, so that may be why you aren't aware of that. :D

Uzi master
23-08-10, 04:47
I didnt say it was bad it got complex, but the fact it could have been at least a bit complex in the first game is the writers fault for making it happen After the first game, and since I dont have the other's I don't know how complex it get's.

Carbonek_0051
23-08-10, 04:49
The first does have complex parts to the story, you clearly didn't pay attention to them though. It's not the writer's fault as you keep blaming him, it's your's.

*Some KH1 spoilers*

Gladly, it's not just light vs darkness like you say. Maleficent is after the Princesses of Heart because their hearts are of pure light, and she wants them to open up Kingdom Hearts which they believe is to be a realm of never ending darkness. She is being used by Ansem to open KH for him, Riku later is revealed to be possessed by Ansem the Seeker of Darkness, and Kairi is the last Princess of Heart, and that her missing heart has been trapped within Sora's body since the destruction of Destiny Islands. Sora is not just going to Disney world's to help them but to seal the keyholes which are the entrance for heartless into the worlds. There is a lot more to it, and I could sit here all night and write out the full story but that's just 25% of it, you obviously did not pay attention if you didn't grasp any of that.

There's a lot of blank holes in the plot in KH1, that are further explained in KH2, which opens up even more questions, and the later games produce more answers and questions yet again.

That's not a flaw, that's brilliant story-telling. :D We learn more as the characters learn more. And a great way to keep players on their toes, wanting more (and buying more, heheh).

I loved how in COM at the end Sora chooses to have his memories set back in order, in turn losing his memories of COM.This way, even though you may not have played COM, it didn't matter because Sora had no idea about it either. :D To me that was brilliantly crafted, considering that it was the first KH game not on the PS2, so most of the fans would not have played it. This way the story could continue, but there would still be unanswered questions for you to solve should you wish.

But anyway, "I digress. (Go, find Kairi.)" :D

EDIT: Though it may appear like a normal story, it's more complex, and this is shown later in the series, that not all is as it appears in KH1. There's a far more sinister background to everything you see. ;)

She is being used by Ansem to open KH for him, 2Riku later is revealed to be possessed by Ansem the Seeker of Darkness, and Kairi is the last Princess of Heart, and that her missing heart has been trapped within Sora's body since the destruction of Destiny Islands. 3Sora is not just going to Disney world's to help them but to seal the keyholes which are the entrance for heartless into the worlds. There is a lot more to it, and I could sit here all night and write out the full story, but you obviously did not pay attention if you didn't grasp any of that.

1: so the bad guy's want to open up all the bad stuff huh? and I don't think it's "complex" for a bad guy to use another bad guy

2: okay, that part was slightley interesting, but the guy who used to be good started doing bad things but he was just possessed? well, I think him having his own intentions would be less cleche then in the end him being good again, but I suppose everyone likes the happy ending.

3: umm, so stopping the worlds from possibly being destroyed isn't a purley good thing? and they still have to help everyone they meet along the way.

Carbonek_0051
23-08-10, 05:13
He's is SUPPOSED to seal the keyholes, it's the job of the keyblade wielder to seal the keyholes and mantain peace with the worlds and make sure they are all back to the way they were before the heartless destroyed the barriers and were hurting the other worlds. It's not just to "do the right thing". It's his responsibility as a keyblade wielder.

The reason Riku was possessed by Ansem was because he already had darkness in his heart, he was jealous of Sora.

Uzi master
23-08-10, 05:16
isn't everyone but those princesses supposed to have darkness in there hearts:p

(darkness and light are pretty much just good and evil, and everyone has some evil...)

strangley I think you got something wrong, but I'll let you figure it out since you like KH so much:ton:

But Riku's darkness was strong, that's why he was so vulnerable to the darkness.

And you would be wrong.

He was, but the Keyblade rejected him - he wanted it for the wrong purpose. It chose Sora because he didn't need it for anything - he has his friends as his power.

And he didn't choose darkness, not at first. He was jealous of Sora and hated himself, and that jealousy and hate ate away at him. The darkness in his heart was further influenced by Maleficent and her cronies, and then Ansem intervening and convincing him to open his heart to him, allowing him to take over Rikku and to use his darkness coupled with his own. Ultimately, it was too much for Rikku to handle, but he pulled through and uses darkness for his own means now. Not because he wanted to, because originally he rejected it, and badly - now he's accepted it.

And oh so much more. Like Carbonek said, it's far too much to explain in one sitting.

:D The plot is far more sinister and dark when you read it that way, huh? So many little things that make it far more awesome.

And that's one tiny aspect. I think Rikku really carries the series on a higher scale - Rikku is one of my ultimately favourite characters. Him, Lara, and many select more.

EDIT: Which is why I can't choose between the two series! Argh! :D

well, I was pretty sure rikku was supposed to get it first, but then he went into darkness, otherwise he would have had it in the first place if he was meant to have it, sorra got it just after rikku dissapeard it the darkness.


but maybe I forgot, either way if it werent for rikku the plot of KH 1 would have been unbearably simple.

(and don't bring up anything that isn't brought up AND explained in the first game if you reply to this)

It's way too hard to explain things if you don't want answers from the other games, where they are further explained! :ton:

Now I see what part you mean. We're not really sure what happened that time - Rikku seemed to have some weird understanding of the situation - "The door.....has opened." - while Sora and the player are left clueless, just knowing that Destiny Islands was being consumed by darkness. Rikku allowed himself to be taken by the darkness, away to wherever, while Sora fought valiantly against it, and so the Keyblade instead went to him.

Sora was merely the "carrier" of the Keyblade until it reached Rikku. Then the circumstances changed, etc etc.

@Carbonek, do you know exactly what happened during that time? Has that been explained now? I really am not sure, and it shames me to admit that.

EDIT: Wait, did Rikku find a Corridor of Darkness like Sora did later on?

Well, considering you're in a forum called Tomb Raider Forums, then the odds are stacked that TR will be earning the throne as their favorite game.

I like both games just the same. Action/Adventure is preferably my favorite genre so Tomb Raider games used to earn that high spot with me, but KH really implemented the RPG style with some action/adventure elements, so I enjoy it quite a lot as well.

Well,I'm not gonna say that the games are completely different because other forum members have already said it.But if I had to choose I'd definately choose TR,I hate KH.

Technically none of the KH games are spin-offs, since spin-offs tend to stray away from the main series and only have very little in common (i.e. characters & locations). All the KH games are significant to the plot, so none can be labled as spin-offs. :p

23-08-10, 10:48
there not really significant to the plot as 358 was mainly eating ice cream and was explained pretty much in kh 2 and com got mind wiped from sora and gang and was partially re explained so i think they can be counted as both lol

Not necessarily, CoM introduced the Orginization and brought in Namine & DiZ and set up plot points for KHII & Days. Days was basically showing us what we already didn't know, and introduced Xion who is important to the plot. There is a lot in both of those games that is significant to the plot. I consider them bridge games if anything. xD

Rikku is obviously better. Riku just ripped off the name.

so since the games are different you can't decide which one is better?

Tetsuya Nomura named him Riku for a reason, all the character names derived from a Japanese word. Sora = Sky, Kairi = Sea, & Riku = Land. He didn't rip off the name.

Yeah that's why the series is so critically acclaimed and sells so well and is liked by many because of it's story. It's such a terrible game with horrible dialogue. :tmb:

Seriously Uzi master, I don't even understand what you have against KH, is it because someone tried comparing to TR? If it was such a horrible game like you keep making it out to be why is so popular and liked by so many? Plus, it's not like TR has the most amazing dialogue in the world.
