A fair price and a great retailer!
All Kingdom Hearts Discounts, Offers and Sale - March 2019
Yes, saving a load of money as you’re getting 2.8 also! (party)
Hi, that's exactly the way I see it, it's soooo chronologically confusing and have wanted to play these games for a long time, BUT I have been told that this game tells you what order to play them in. So for approx. £24 I am happy to buy this and play through them all in the correct order (or near as dammit lol) and then invest in Kingdom Hearts III after. There are a LOT of games on this collection so it's a no-brainer to pick it up and at least try it out. I hope this helps
Hmm, not gonna re-buy. Will just watch a play through of 2.8 somewhere lol.
Yes. This is a combination of 1.5 + 2.5, and 2.8
Is there any reason to get this over the standard 1.5 and 2.5 final mix version?
It was more the point that, unlike the past deluxe editions when they came out, this one is still available. It may drop in price more, but worth the price if people wanted it now
It is the deluxe edition...isn’t it?
Heat :) buy it soon mate!
Not as hard to find as the previous Deluxe editions, but still a great price for people interested
Super price there bud (y)
Yeah not all bad but the first 20 hours of the game are just filler. They just re hash the same Disney story from the movies and you don’t get to fight any of the characters just pointless heartless enemies won’t write anymore incase of spoilers.
But standards were high, so it's not all bad. Its a shame it didn't write meet many expectations, but I've heard good things too.
A fine response however my critique was not based on how well drawn it is but rather the composition not only of the characters but the layout of the font/text/logo. Original landscape with centralised logo (clearly to wide for box art) Cropped image with logo off centre and characters moved (strange design choice in my view) Found this image, that although still Cropped and with characters moved as before the logo has been placed in the centre and therefore is much more pleasing to mine eye! This is all personal opinion of course but I was intrigued as to others opinions. MM
Look at the picture again, infact it does use the golden ratio (or rule of thirds). Although the composition is actually broken up into 8ths (4x2), removing the first quarter on the left you will see your golden ratio 1.6:1 (W x H). But even without GR the 8 x 4 composition is very precise to the point where it shows that the artist has taken a deliberate design decision to draw it this way, but whether or the artist uses a familiar standard or not, you should acknowledge that it is really well drawn.

I am a kingdom hearts fan played nearly all games except the mobile one. Still massive disappointment. I finished it because I felt I should not because I liked it and sold it straight away.
It's just made more for KH series fans than casual gamers is all.
Decent price, Still disappointed in this game such a pitty.
Bought today for £34.99 on Amazon as a birthday present. Coolshop ship from Europe, so I know Amazon will get here on time.
Just to clarify are these essentially remakes of 1 and 2? If I play all of these will I be up to speed with the story to play 3? Have always wanted to try out the series but never had a PS2 or PS3
Is it best to play this in the order the titles are listed in OP?
Just ordered. Is there anything that is missing from this collection, that I would need to play to get up to speed?
i just brought 1.5 and 2.5 for 16.99 last week for ps4
I got it for £19 or so. I’ll just be trading it in and getting a deal on 2.8. After I’m done with that then the loss I’d make would be similar to trading in 1.5/2.5 for the complete collection for me, give or take a couple of quid
I paid by PayPal, the money is taken on 21st, before release date

even cheaper now - £23.85
Also same price at Base guys :) https://www.base.com/Games/Kingdom-Hearts-The-Story-so-far-PS4/KINGHRTSFPS4/product.htm
Bah, just hurried to buy KH 1.5 because seemed like they were getting out of stock, so anticipated the price might slowly increase... This is a sweet price though.
Boss!! Been looking to get into this series, Pre-ordered.
23.85 at base. Here
I picked up 1.5/2.5 for £20 and will probably pick up 2.8 for the same . After trade in I probably lose just under £10 overall. I’ve been going through the first one at a steady pace so no rush to complete them all, by that time they’ll be cheaper anyway. Would have been a great deal for me if I keep games but I always trade them in.
Brexit has not made a playstation note expensive though?
Ah, you clearly haven't played KH2 in Critical mode that came later exclusive with the Final Mix version (which is added in this remaster), battles are highly regarded in this mode and triangle or spam moves won't help you here you can try it won't work, much more fun to play in this mode
Xbox and ps4 currently £35 on Amazon 😁
The Amazon XBOX link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingdom-Hearts-3-Xbox-One/dp/B00ZGCGR2W
Ah no my bad. Only noticed it after posting the screenshot. This isn't the version sold by Amazon, It's a third party seller. I hate it when they do that. List a third party seller when you go to the main product page in preference to the Amazon version. All you have is that tiny little bit of blue text to look out for to make sure you aren't being scammed.
Strange other people aren't seeing this. I've gone on there twice now and both times its showing £36.50 as the price for the PlayStation Standard Edition.
The intro is nowhere on the same level as Simple & Clean and Without you.
Looks a bit Mickey Mouse to be honest.
I kept thinking I missed something too....alas, it's just a basic vr experience.
Yh I didn't interact with anything, was very basic and not really an experience.
I couldn't work it out either. It didn't look very interactive.
Start from 3 if you are new to the series. It gives you the most amount of chills and a fair overview of what happened in the past 12 titles. If you have not played the game at all, it is the best way to start and ignore all the details you may encounter in past titles. Instead enjoy the game play and OST. If you ever ended up liking the series then you can come back to play from start to find out more about each character and their story. Otherwise, starting from scratch for a new player is a big gamble and you may be put off by the amount of content you would get from the series.
Other one tells you to play days before 2 which would spoil the plot of 2.. So make sure you play 2 before days :D
Buy the other collection and play in the order the launcher presents them. Then you move onto this collection
Totally new to kingdom hearts, any recommendation on where to start on the PS4? The 1.x remix ones?
Any game containing Aqua deserves heat :D
Been posted few times already and never been any stock in most places
297.4 miles for me to Stornoway
Pretty much no stock. 360 miles away has a copy...
That's a bargain price! I never saw it dip to that level myself. I think £15 is already exceptional value, and wouldn't feel cheated if I'd paid £30
£9.14 - Not anytime soon.
Cheaper by a quid at at Simply Games: https://www.simplygames.com/p/kingdom-hearts-hd-15-and-25-remix-ps4
Oh wow! I wonder if the price will go back down to its previous levels
THANK YOU OP!! I’ve been trying for ages to get this! Resorted to trying 2nd hand copies for £25-£30 so you’ve saved me some money and effort :D
Right so I’ve just finished the game and I have to say that the game is too easy on the normal mode admittedly and I wish I did it on the proud mode instead. Other than that Id say I really enjoyed it for the most part and loved how they went full into the Disney worlds this time and went full crazy about the KH story. Even though I am gutted that the final fantasy characters were not included I can understand since they needed to put Disney and tie up a lot of the built up story in the franchise. Looking forward to whatever Tetsuya Nomura manages to come up for this in the future
I hope I see it the same way!
You must play it first. Believe me! It’s perfect the way it is. :)
The way I see it, they could have made it a 40 hour game, or not said this would conclude the Xehonout(urgh spelling) saga. I just want more of what I love!
The thing is in a 30 hours game (50hour platinum) they could put just as much. The story had a lot to answer and if they wanted to go off road then this wouldn’t have been the conclusion to the story. I think that’s why they had to be selective.
Has been reposted at the new lower price. Please expire this one.
Out of stock unfortunately, very good price though...hot.
PDP controllers are very bad. After only a few months the buttons start to get stuck and the sticks get loose
Search for a titan two. Expensive at about £95 but does all sorts. Or you could go for the cronusmax which is an older model but much cheaper. Check limeprogaming ;)
I love it, it is beautiful, heat added.
Anything for a PS4? is there some kind of adaptor that will let you interchange controllers via Xbox and Sony?
Oooooooooo I want!
I loved the first two but I’ve skipped all the in between stuff and the story is head spinning. Totally turned off The latest jimquisition does a riff on it :) Oh and I used to like gameranx but they plagiarised one too many times
I know how you feel and If your not in a hurry to play it then it will go down in price really fast as all titles do a few months after release anyway.
Yes that’s always the case where people tend to shoot first and ask later! This has gone as cold as a witches tit (annoyed)
It’s a decent discount for a brand new title. You’ll get a ton of people whining about physical having resale value, even if you mention that the listing is for people who prefer digital. They don’t seem to be very fast studies!
I do really want this, but seeing as I have a game backlog I'll wait and hope to pick it up cheaper. Re cashback, it should always be looked at as a bonus and not a certainty, so I wouldn't buy a more expensive game and assume the cashback will make it cheaper. I've had cashback turned down many times for no reason and they won't do anything about it. Plus some in my quidco I've been waiting on a payout on for over a year....
The PSP game Birth by Sleep is included in 2.5 and the 3DS game Dream Drop Distance is in 2.8 so yeah they're all there. It's only the two original DS games 358/2 Days and Re:Coded that aren't playable and are replaced by cutscenes (in 1.5 and 2.5 respectively) that cover the games - I don't think those two were supposed to have great gameplay anyway and aren't as important as BBS and DDD. Still in stock at Helston for anyone in Cornwall.
Ah noes :( I got a copy from my local Argos this morning but checking eBay it seems that i got the last one in Manchester. 0-0
A few copies left in Belfast city centre store if anyone is this side of the Irish Sea! Great find though (y) 🏻
Out of stock everywhere & unavailable for delivery :(
It's extremely confusing lol. I'm just so glad that they grouped them together for PS4 and it makes it a lot easier for new players to get into the story. KH 3 is acutely suppose to be 2.9 and 3.0 or something silly like that lol.
If you want final fantasy with Donald duck and goofy without caring too much about story just play 1.5 and 2.5 (they are just HD versions of 1 and 2). If you actually want to get into the story then find yourself some free time and get ready to have to play every single one. Some of the earlier ones have been condensed into just the cutscenes but you'll still need to play 1, 2, birth by sleep and dream drop distance. Oh and the new 0.2 fragmentary passage. Yes I know I silly that all sounds.
Is Kingdom Hearts the Story so far going to be released in UK?
Thanks, been putting off as I have dream drop distance on my 3ds.... £16 for the prologue is a bit steep but....
Here's the link for the first game https://www.thegamecollection.net/kingdom-hearts-hd-1-5-and-2-5-remix-ps4/?sqr=kingdom hearts&
Anyone here even considering Kingdom Hearts III needs to play the majority of the content in these sets: Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories (think of it has KH1.5, you'll be lost in KH2 skipping this!) Watch 358/2 Days Kingdom Hearts II Birth By Sleep 2.8's fragment passage 0.2 (set after Birth By Sleep, skip all cut scenes in yen sids tower and watch them after DDD) Watch ReCoded (or the ending at the very least) Dream Drop Distance (Unskippable, really sets the stage for the events of KHIII) Then after all that there is a damn mobile game called Union Cross Chi - someone has done a good video summary on YouTube which is less than an hour. Good to watch after 2.8's back cover movie) It's a lot to invest in but considering the price you're getting huge bang for your bucks here - heat+(highfive)
Been £16.95 at the game collection for ages. https://www.thegamecollection.net/kingdom-hearts-hd-1-5-and-2-5-remix-ps4/
This was at £19.99 then they put it on "sale" at 10% off at £17.99 then a few hours later it's £23.99 what the hell???
This 'person' has resorted to sending abuse to me via PM.
still available on Argos eBay store for £17.99 click & collect https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kingdom-Hearts-HD-1-5-and-2-5-Remix-Sony-Playstation-PS4-Game/352294204818?
