Why so? As I personally think the first is better in terms of story while the second is better in terms of gameplay.Imo, no. Personally, I actually consider it one of the worst games in the series. Of the games I've played thus far I think the first is the best.

I don't know what all of you mean when you say that KH2 is too shonen.. All KH games have shonen elements in them, 'cause THAT is the audience.
I felt that the story, characters, and gameplay were downgrades from their predecessors. The story and characters felt like they took too much inspiration from the shounen manga that were prevalent at the time and the gameplay was all flash but no substance. Most of the games are sort of like this but KH2 is a true button masher through and through where all I have to do is win is press "X", and occasionally triangle, without much thought.
There's very little strategy involved and it quickly losses its sheen. I mean, last time I played KH2 I got through more than half the game in one siting but wasn't eager to finish it. It was fun at first because the fast paced, simple gameplay can be cathartic, but I got tired of "pressing X to win". Still haven't finished that save.
Kh2 was a huge step backwords as Ruran pointed out. I think the worst thing about kh2 is the treatment of disney. In kh1, it felt so important since it was so well integrated in the narrative. But in kh2 it just felt like filler. The disney worlds and characters just didn't matter.
