Ranking The Games & Movies Of Kingdom Hearts: All-in-One Package Worst To Best

Kingdom Hearts is the series that never ends! But which entries are the best?

Square-Enix

Kingdom Hearts is the nearly two decades old franchise which started when a developer at Square saw his child doodling Final Fantasy characters playing with Disney characters in the margin of their school notebook the evening before a big presentation. The developer had no other ideas, so he decided to steal this nonsense from his kid.

At least you have to assume that’s where it started, because the actual story of a chance meeting between a Square employee and a Disney employee that resulted in a literal elevator pitch seems too weird and coincidental for a series this successful. But there you have it: that’s Kingdom Hearts.

With 17 games, 3 concert tours, an ongoing manga series, novels, and literal text books written about it, it's daunting as hell. But which ones are the best? If you were a crazy person and played them all back to the back, which ones would stand out? With the newest game, Melody of Memory, just released, it seems the right time to look at the games leading up to that. So, let’s look at the 10 games on the collection disc of Kingdom Hearts: All-in-One Package, worst to best.

Going by this collection, that means seven games and three compilation movies - and yes these movies will be ranked amidst the games. Perhaps not the best method, but the alternative is diving into an even more complicated version of a Kingdom Hearts list and let’s not do that.
