My strategy through com is basically clearing every room of enemies or at least 3-4 battles per room. Every room necessary to clear the world anyways.

I finished Sora mode with a nice round level 60 and 200hp.

I feel like Riku mode is probably doable with significantly less combat.

Yeah that's kinds true, but lots of battling smooths the map card distribution too. You can actually reach a limit of 99 map cards.

Even sora's mode can be done pretty low level if you know which cards to use. Like if you can get your hands on 3+ Blizzard cards, the first half of the game can basically be handled with that alone.

I did this with Sora and then ended up tossing literally 1 too many green cards(I got stuck on a green card door with 2 remaining).

There's a door near the end of Riku mode that is an absolute bitch. It has this really weird uncommon value that I had to grind for a whole day to get.

Don't remember what the value was though, so you're out of luck.

Riku has a hard time getting behind or jumping over these large fat heartless. Lost a fight to a single one because I could not spin around him.

Mickey however does not screw around like Donald/Goofy. Getting his card to show up destroys everything.

So yeah, the way i just gain XP and the way it scales, I can pretty safely rush through these stages to move forward.

The deck changes quite a bit between stages, just noticed it when I got to Traverse Town and suddenly all my 0s are gone.

there is no escape from fighting Riku over and over again.

However, using his attack where he warps across the arena repeatedly is very satisfying after dying to it so many times.

breaking all his cards is apparently not going to work. Used up all of my low cards to break and he still ends up with 6-7-8 cards at the end(No cards in Riku mode are over 5 here).

Learning the deck order to where you know where to fetch 9s and 0s helps a lot.

Won some duels til dark mode, then unloaded the 9/9/9 sleight for like 3 full bars of damage.

and again, my biggest annoyance with this fight is he takes forever to kill you. He puts you to a point you cant defend yourself or attack or to the point he has his books out so early you just want to reset.

But he doesnt do any damage so it takes forever.

Except I got impatient and attempted to beat the last two bars out of him.

In hindsight, a bad idea. The last two bars took longer than the rest of the fight combined.

Also I'm pretty sure not all of the games are fully available in these 1.5/2.5 things. So I need to figure out the proper way to play them or if just watching the cutscenes is sufficient(I'm not sure it is).

I planned to put these questions off until I got to KH2, and well, I'm here finally.

Release order goes from CoM > KH2 > 358/2 Days

Chronically speaking 358/2 Days is an interquel that takes place between KH1 and KH2, so some people have recommended playing that before KH2. That is complete horsecrap. 358/2 Days treats a lot of KH2 plot elements as common knowledge, and will spoil a lot of important twists that KH2 has, including stuff that is only revealed at the very end of that game. There is no sensible reason to play it before KH2, unless maybe you're doing a replay of the series and want to do things in that order already knowing what the story is.

It is kind of muddled because 358/2 Days was bundled in the 1.5 collection while KH2 is in the 2.5 collection. Because of this in the combo package of all the games it's listed in the wrong order. But there's still no good reason to play them like that.

358/2 Days and coded are just cutscenes in the HD collections. The 358/2 Days one is pretty bad and skips over a lot of story beats, but coded's gets the job done (although it helps that it's a much shallower plot).

I wouldn't say either game is particularly worth playing these days. The best bet if you really want to get into 358/2 Day's story is to look up the Youtube videos that combine the HD cutscenes with supplemental material.

Not really. KHUx isn't in a collection, but I don't think there's anything in that story that you'll miss out on. You'll get the gist of it, but not the details, from Back Cover.

I mean you can look it up on Youtube. But all it shows really is a cutscene that you'll see in a future game anyway. It meant a lot more back when that game didn't exist yet.

Still, you unlock it super easily by playing in Proud Mode, and that difficulty is way easier in KH2 than in the previous games, so I would say go for it just for fun.
