Actually, I thought it might be significant to Braig and Ven in the past.
Yeah, I just realized that as I was thinking about it earlier today.
Speaking of which, Saix and Marluxia have been my favorite members for ages, but is anyone else finding Xigbar and Demyx hilarious? Demyx and his lazy carefree attitude is amusing. And Xigbar... he loves having fun.

Xigbar: You're here to- Ah ha ha! As if!

Just beat the game. Loved it. Things got pretty crazy towards the end, but I'll keep this spoiler free. Took me a little over 30 hours because I was taking my time trying to fully complete missions, even though I wasn't able to complete them all, let alone completely. I came across an optional-heartless boss near the end of the game that took down about 80% of my HP or so in one hit while I was Level 5X, so I didn't even bother with him just yet. Keep in mind, this is on Normal mode. I'm not going to play Proud mode for a while, I'm going to concentrate on Mission Mode and playing as the other Organization members for a while.
At any rate, the game overall was amazing if you're a major Organization XIII fan, great if you're a general KH-in-particular-fan, and might be confusing otherwise. This game was overshadowed by BBS for most of the KH community, and mainly lived up to the expectations to those who found Organization XIII interesting, such as myself. I just wish I knew people around here that played KH, let alone people around my age of 20.
I'm hoping Birth by Sleep will impress me as well. Days seemed to be mainly for Organization XIII fans and those who wanted great KH multiplayer. Even though BBS will have a multiplayer mode, I strongly doubt it will be as organized as Days', but I could be wrong.
Spoiler ShowMy rating for the game is a 10/10, it exceeded my already high expectations.
The game itself probably deserves an 8/10 or 8.5/10 for the general video game user who has played other KH games. The story can be a little confusing, and it may seem slow for those that don't have a strong interest in this Organization nor understand the point of the game.
The leveling system is unique, as it is in all KH games, which can be some for fun, a stress for others, though probably the latter consists of the minority. The overall gameplay is well-received almost unanimously, with a possible flaw consisting of the camera, which is something most KH games fall short of. While it may not be a problem at all for a major (KH) gamer, it can be problematic for a casual gamer.
The fact that the game can continue to live on with Mission Mode and multiplayer mode with such a wide range of characters (almost that of Super Smash Bros. Melee) which each character generally having unique combos, limits, customization, et cetera adds to the overall value of the game. Even though there may be people who will not be able to experience playing this game with another friend, they will still have the option of playing Mission Mode solo while at the same time experimenting with other characters.
With over 30 hours of gameplay clocked in, without having completed the secret missions, unlocking all of the characters, nor getting far in mission mode, this is a great game considering it's on the Nintendo DS.
That is my overall (mini) review of this game.
