Managed to get my hands on a promo copy and am happily playing this now.
It's good so far. A bit strange at the start, and my HD TV does not like PS2 graphics. That or I'm too used to the HD generation already.
Either way, if you liked the first, I highly suggest this. Only thing is that some of the characters are from the GBA version so expect to be totally lost if you haven't played that. There is a wordless FMV sequence which sums it up but not if you haven't played them.
I have to agree from the point of view that it's a lot more linear then the first one. That said, I love Disney, I love Final Fantasy, so it can be as linear as it wants. Thankfully, I'm just well past that irritating opening and back with Goofy and Donald.
