Kingdom Hearts BBS – Hunting Disney Characters for Sport

After everyone takes off into their respective storylines, the game reveals a number of worlds on the world map. The world map in BBS functions largely like the free-roaming map in KH2, but with several very odd restrictions. The player-character (riding their Keyblade Glider) “sticks” to the edges of the worlds and the Lanes Between them, but by holding down the accelerate button, you can break away and fly freely. Why this arbitrary restriction when KH2 had already illustrated an easier way to do a map screen? It’s impossible to say, unless they were trying to tie the mechanics to the narrative about “Lanes Between” in a way that only hinders the player to no measurable advantage. What a great first impression we’re giving here!
