Would "Kingdom Hearts" for the PS2 be to difficult for my 10 year old son?

    He's never played any RPG type games. I wanted to introduce him to this genre. He plays AOEII and Age of Mythology at the EASY level on the PC and some fighting games on the PS2. Any feedback?

    He could probably handle it then. KH isn't an RPG in the "text based menus" sense, but it's more of a 3rd person action/adventure game with some levelling and equipment. More similar to Zelda than Final Fantasy in other words.

    Basically, it would mean having to understand the concept of equipping stuff, and reading a few statistics-i.e. this weapon raises defense, but lowers accuracy. Should be no problem for him though.

    Chris: Good information thanks! I remember how much I enjoyed Zelda 1&2 and FF3 years ago.

    If he is use to playing games I would guess it would be no problem. I bought this game for my wife and she couldn't play it but she doesn't really play many games either. It's only 20 bucks now but when I bought it for her it was 50! Good thing that I like the game and play it every once in a while[​IMG] I'd say go for it, it's a cool game if you like disney.

    My son is 10 and really likes the game but has give up on more than one occasion because of difficulty.
    He has gotten pretty far according to him though.

    Dean: My 8 year old son has shown more interest in the game than my oldest. We bought my oldest Kingdom Hearts (PS2) and Age of Mythology (PC). He's big into AOEII. Now, he can't stop playing AOM. It's a crap shoot, you just never know!

    He'll probably get really frustrated with a couple of boss battles, like Cerberus. Otherwise it's just a button masher, and fun at that.
