Kingdom Hearts (2002) is a series of action role-playing games that combine video games and Disney characters in popular adventures. You play Sora, as he journeys with various Disney, Square Enix and Pixar characters and fights multiple incarnations of the games villain, Xehanort.
You explore the worlds, take on hack-and-slash combat, and progress a story. The novelty is, of course, the Disney characters, but also the games are known for engaging stories and light character development. They are a little like a lite version of the Final Fantasy games.
More than older role-play games, these are stories about friendship. Many characters need help along the way - and many boss battles feel almost insurmountable. With help from friends like Donald and Goofy, the player character Sora overcomes the darkness to save his friends and bring hope back to the world.
