Console: Gameboy Advance
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories came along when the whimsical Disney-Final Fantasy mashup still made sense. A direct sequel to the original, and the first spinoff in the now confusingly expanded series, Chain of Memories remains one of the best entries in the franchise today. Trading action gameplay for real time strategy mechanics paid off in a big way on GBA. Using an inspired card battling and deck building mechanic, Sora and friends made their way through Castle Oblivion, hopping from Disney worlds using Sora’s memories. Chain of Memories both looked and played great. If you want to play a prettier version of this excellent strategy game, the PS2 remaster is available in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix on PS4 and PS3.
