    A Satisfying Conclusion

    Kingdom Hearts first released in March of 2002 in Japan, September of 2002 in North America. Over the intervening roughly 17 years, there have been numerous games released across various platforms, all of which take place somewhere along a consistent, if a tad confusing, overall timeline. It is important to know this, because if you have not played approximately half of the games that were released to date, you're going to be lost. Kingdom Hearts 3 has a decent primer--about 15 minutes of backstory accessible from the main menu catching players up on all of the story threads. However, if you're considering playing Kingdom Hearts 3, pick up a copy of "Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far" and play/watch everything on that first. For those players who are caught up, Kingdom Hearts 3 delivers on its promise. The story beats are never particularly surprising. Xehanort, the main antagonist, is on the verge of bringing his decades-long plan into fruition, and it's up to Sora and his friends to stop him. What stands out is that the game actually does a remarkable job of providing a satisfying conclusion to all of the outstanding story threads. I'm sure there are some that aren't completely wrapped up, but after my 35 hour journey which served as the culmination of nearly 17 years' of games' stories, I felt satisfied. Beyond the story aspects, Kingdom Hearts III is one of the better games in the series from a gameplay standpoint. It incorporates elements from Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. The combat is a little tighter than in past games, and the movement and jumping, which has never been the series' strong point, is much more refined. I definitely have a few issues with the game though. The worlds you explore are huge, significantly larger than any of the worlds from the rest of the series. However, even when I was generally enjoying the stories for the game worlds, I felt like they all started to drag on a little too long. Each world is roughly a 1.5-2 hour experience to just run through the storyline. I felt that a lot of them could have been a tad shorter. Additionally, while some of them like the Tangled and Frozen worlds follow the plot of the corresponding films, some of the worlds' stories are pretty bad. The Toy Story world is really cool in concept and looks incredible, but the storyline (which takes place between Toy Story and Toy Story 2) is just dull, with little emotional weight. I also didn't care much for the story in the Monsters Inc. world, though again, it was a neat world to run through and explore. The other thing about this series is that it is extremely cutscene heavy. The general path through a world is cutscene --> battle --> safe room --> cutscene --> corridors with battles --> cutscene --> battle --> repeat until boss battle --> cutscene --> end. You spend a good chunk of time just watching this game play out, and while it's not really any different from past entries in the series, I found the endless string of cutscenes less appealing than I did in the past. Battles tend to take a little long as well. It's not any different from past games, but like the cutscenes, it was more noticeable to me this time around. Related to time spent, the finale goes on a little longer than I think it needs to, with a long string of "final battles" before the "final battle." It's all in service of a 17-year-in-the-making story conclusion, and again, it's satisfying, but it just goes on and on. That's my feeling on Kingdom Hearts III as a whole. It's by far the longest game in the franchise, and while it has a ton of time to breathe and provide a good beginning, middle, and end to each of the worlds while simultaneously wrapping up all of the core outstanding story threads from past games, I felt like there was a little too much of it. I was ready for the game to be over about 5-10 hours before it actually was finished. By the same token, I enjoyed it. I give this a conditional recommendation. If you're interested in it, but have never played a Kingdom Hearts game, get The Story So Far first. The Disney worlds are generally fun on their own, and their stories are all largely self-contained, but the main Kingdom Hearts plot elements that bookend everything will leave you completely lost if you're not already familiar with them and somewhat invested in the story. On the other hand, if you are interested and you're mostly caught up with the story and you want to see how it ends, I would strongly recommend this game. It's one of the best in the series, and while it doesn't fix all of the series' shortcomings, it does enough to wrap the endgame of a long-running saga up in a fun game experience.

    Half Baked Mess

    Like most reviewers here, I have been a fan of this series since the very first one. I love JRPGs so obviously this and Final Fantasy are two of my favorite franchises of all time. The deluxe edition is pretty nice. The steelbook case looks great and the pin and art book are nice touches. If it's worth the extra $20 is up to you, probably more if you're a super fan of the series. On to the game...whew chile. I am not unrealistic. I knew this would not be the same as KH 1 and 2 (which is still the best installment of the franchise imo) and to try to not play this game with nostalgia glasses. And after being in development for so long and the hot mess that was FF XV, my expectations and faith in Square Enix were already not very high. Even with all that, I was still so disappointed. At first I was impressed by the amazing graphics and expansive worlds and having fun with the new features like the attractions, new and improved gummi system and the gummiphone. After a few hours the shininess wore off, though and I felt left with astoundingly disjointed, hollow and just thrown together storytelling that very rarely had any depth or meaning (and yes I know this series is not known for masterpiece dialogue and certainly not known for clear plot points but it is blatantly worse in this game), boring and repetitive gameplay and worlds that that felt like chores at some point, and combat that wasn't challenging albeit cool looking. I've only put in as many hours as I have to say I got my money's worth and not because I was having fun, which was almost heartbreaking for me. Despite all this, I don't want to discourage anyone from playing it. As you can see there are a ton of people who love this game and I'm so happy for them, I'm just not one of them. I guess in my case too many of the factors that made me fall in love with the franchise were the things that were missing. Things like the coliseum, Sephiroth boss fight, and the Hollow Bastion/Radiant Garden (a world you amazingly don't even go to) gang, although small and not necessarily needed, were just classic elements to me and the absence of it made me sad. It's still a good game and a great way to introduce a new generation to the franchise. Maybe a second playthrough will help it grow on me more and the DLCs that are definitely coming may or may not improve upon some of the flaws.

    Good Conclusion to the Trilogy*

    If you haven't played Kingdom Hearts, start there. You will be absolutely lost starting at 3 as the story is progressive. Fortunately for you (we didn't have this luxury until a few years back) Square Enix and placed all previous Kingdom Hearts titles in "The Story So Far," I highly recommend picking it up before attempting to play 3. To the review: Kingdom Hearts 3 is easier than previous titles and easier to complete than previous titles. I call this point neutral as there are different difficulty settings and you can ignore "kupo coins" (instant revives). Kingdom Hearts 3 is shorter than 2 but still has a good chunk of gameplay. I feel that with all of the commands the gameplay feels easy and smooth. They keep coming up with an excuse for Sora to be less powerful, but the easiness contradicts that a bit. The gummi ship sections are actually fun this time around. I found them to be a chore in one and just fun enough not to mind in 2. In 3, I was actively completing missions and building my ideal ship. The leveling system is fun and the missions are rewarding. There are also a lot of minigames in Kingdom Hearts 3. Most are relatively easy, but you do have to master most for completion. Fortunately, this shouldn't take more than 30 mins to an hr for each game to completion. And most of the minigames are fun though there are a few that are pretty frustrating when getting close to the high score. The story is just what you would expect from a Kingdom Hearts game. If you like Kingdom Hearts, why haven't you bought this yet? If you haven't tried Kingdom Hearts read first paragraph. If you don't like Kingdom Hearts why are you here? I feel that there are no middle grounders, you will either thoroughly enjoy this game or not like it at all.

    I've been a fan since the beginning. KH2.5 Final Mix is the best arpg ever made imo. So what went wrong with 3? A lot. The story is a mess. I like convoluted stories like ff7, chrono cross etc. But there's a level of intelligence in those that are not present with KH. The level of ***pulls in this game is unrivaled. It just comes across as sloppy and unfocused. They try too hard to force new questions without even considering how it's presented. They "introduce" (force down your throat) some new mystery about some "GURL" who disappeared who has never been mentioned until this game and won't shut up about it. They also tell you NOTHING about it in the end. Wow, good one. Got me dudes. Sorry if that's a spoiler but to me it's not. The absolute worst writing ever. The gameplay is serviceable. But it takes HUGE steps back from kh2.5. They had the perfect template to work off of but just failed to improve in any way and took several steps backwards. Remember how every spell was super useful in kh2? Well not in this game. You have different colored fireballs and 2 aoe's. Wow think of all the possibilities. Combos are unsatisfying. I took off all the combo plus' and finishers because they were just overcomittments and caused me to get hit. They just don't actually make you better. So what's left? Pressing triangle to win of course. Attractions take sooooooooooooooo long to finish and are the most braindead ****. I want to play the game not have it play itself. Overall it's SUPER disappointing. Half the Disney worlds are just movieplot rehashes and the games less than 30 hrs on Proud mode. If you're a super fan and don't mind this game walking all over your expectations and disrespecting your intelligence, then by all means, suffer. Kh1 and 2 fans from a time long ago. STAY AWAY. It's not good

    A Satusfying Conclusion

    Kingdom Hearts III is the culmination of over a decade of games spanning multiple consoles, and I’m happy to say that the wait was well worth it. The graphics are mesmerizing and the different worlds are massive compared to other entries in the series. The addition of PIXAR characters created an abundance of memorable experiences with characters I grew up with. It is simply a joy to play. Yet, it is not without its flaws. The addition of key blade transformations, Disney attractions, etc. are amazing spectacles that are a great deal of fun to use. . . At first. These quickly create an easy way to defeat enemies that I used less and less as I progressed throughout the game due to the fact that they were creating a repetitive gameplay loop. Furthermore, some of the dialogue is still poorly written but it’s far better than what we have come to expect in the series. Square-Enix also made the baffling decision to reveal every Disney world before release which was frankly disappointing and took the wonder out of discovering new worlds while playing. The game also is entirely confusing for anyone who has not played basically every single game in the franchise. The summaries found in the in-game theater provide a little bit of information but not enough to fully help new players understand the game. Overall, Kingdom Hearts III is a great game that is full of charm, exploration, and memorable moments that is simply a must have for fans of the series. The deluxe edition also has a beautiful steelbook, an official Disney pin trading pin, an art book, and the standard box art.

    Almost Good Enough

    I hazard to write this review as I do not necessarily want to turn anyone off to this game, so I will make something clear up front. I really enjoyed my time with this game and I was happy to be able to experience the conclusion to Sora's saga after so long. That being said, this is not the perfect game, nor is it the best Kingdom Hearts game. I went into this game with an assumption that the writing would probably be bad. But oh boy. Some of the totally innane chatter that happens in KH3 almost took me out of it, and my wife (who has not played any of Kingdom Hearts) would consistently look at me with a raised eyebrow and an eye-roll just to indicate how childish the writing truly was. KH3 suffers from a maelstrom of crushingly high expectations and a widespread misunderstanding. Very few, if any, game studios could make a game that perfectly aligns with 12 years of expectations, but I constantly found myself wrapping up story after story and saying "is that it?" At each turn KH3 disappoints you because it always *just* falls short of your expectations. The difficulty leaves something to be desired, the campaign takes 50% of the game to totally re-tell the story as if speaking to a 5 year old, and the characters are unfortunately not relatable anymore. After 12 years I have grown up, gotten married, and graduated college and KH3 hasn't. It didn't grow up with me and it feels childish rather than nostalgic. It is unfortunate that the combat and actual FEEL of KH3 is so good, because it really left me with a wanting that I know will never be filled at this point.

    The visuals of this game are just unbelievable. This game is gorgeous to the point that I would probably just sit and watch someone play. The game play is much simpler than the previous games and therefore not as challenging at least on the moderate setting. However, I liked this as it made for an enjoyable first play through and makes me more excited to replay on a harder setting for the challenge. I actually preferred the fighting controls in this game as it was much simpler and less convoluted than previous with trying to quickly swap forms and scroll through several menus all while trying to keep your enemies at bay. I liked leveling up the keyblades for a change as well. Some people don't like the Lucky Emblem (IE: Hidden Mickey) hunt, I loved it even if the addition of a cell phone was a bit of a groaner. Maybe it was the nostalgia of previous trips to Disney World where Hidden Mickeys actually exist. I thought it was a fun scavenger hunt and they made those emblems appear in some very creative ways using various perspectives. I thought it was a little short. I wouldn't have minded the addition of one or two more main worlds. And I'm undecided if I like the previous games where you cleared a world once but then would have to go back and clear it again or in this game spending more time in one longer setting to clear a world. Pros and cons to both. In the end I love Kingdom Hearts and wasn't disappointed after such a long wait. It's a fun lighthearted game that is just beautiful to watch.

    The wait is over. Kingdom Hearts 3 is here and it's pretty dang good. Now let me answer the question everyone probably has: Should you buy it? If you've been playing KH games. Yeah, just finish up the series. If you're interested, I would say you can jump in, but you might be confused. The plot to KH is already confusing and KH3 doesn't really help. If you just want to jump in and beat things up with a giant key while meeting Disney (and now Pixar) characters, then pick it up and ignore the story. ----- The Game itself is fun. There's a lot happening and you'll find yourself beating up a bunch of heartless with a giant ride from Disneyworld. It's just fun! The plot itself is confusing. If you haven't touched Kingdom Hearts before, the plot is a very strange anime-esque storyline. Even after playing all but one game in the series, I am still confused at some moments. It took me some time to even realize why I was running around exploring these worlds in this game. Overall, four out of five. The game is fun, and games should be fun. Plot is strange, but that's nothing new. If you just want to play a KH game, watch a recap of all the games, pick this up and enjoy the interesting blend of Square Enix and Disney

    Kingdom Hearts 3 is that one day we've all been waiting for. It was everything you could have dreamed of but once you got it, you realized it made you happy but not as happy as you thought you'd be. For me it just felt like it was sort of incomplete. In terms of pacing for the story once you finished the disney worlds things kind of moved really fast. Would have loved to have a bit more of the final fantasy characters in the game tbh. The combat also felt too easy. I played on proud mode and it was not a challenge at all, like I never died and it was super easy to level up. This is the first KH game out of the 9 (i believe don't quote me) that have been released. Wanted more of a challenge definitely. It also kind of felt like the CGI was worse than the in-game cutscenes. Sometimes characters looked younger than they were supposed to, especially Kairi. But for what it lacks, it is an amazing end to a tale that was long awaited. I did in fact love the story and how Sora went on this journey of redemption. And the parts where you'd switch characters and play as others (won't spoil too much) were fantastic and well though out. All In all I give this game an 8/10.

    Kingdom hearts 1 came out in 2002, the same year my son was born. He was no more than 4 years old when we played through the first two games. That began a lifelong obsession with this series. He has played through each game many, many times. He can (and often has) talk for hours about the story and his feelings about it to anyone willing to listen, and even those who aren't. My son and I both have autism, so with us obsessions run very, very deep. He has truly waited 3/4 of his life for this game. Next week he turns 17 and this is the absolute best present he could ever ask for. I had to order 2 copies so I would be able to play. When we got it in the mail today his eyes lit up and immediately started playing it. Many hours later he is still enthralled. I've only interrupted once to ask if it was everything he ever dreamt of. He says it's close, so far its amazing. To those people who are giving one star reviews simply because they haven't gotten their keyblade codes yet (its still launch day!), grow up and have some patience. Dont give negative feedback before you even play the game. Wait a while and it will show up. We got ours today and they both work perfectly fine.

    I've been waiting since high school to play this after KH2 was released. There's a lot of good and a lot of bad so no sugar coating on this one. Good *Amazing visuals. Everything looks beautiful on my launch PS4 so I can only imagine it looks better on newer models. *Finally an final-ish ending. The creator already said KH3 would be the end of the Xeanort saga. So I'm glad it ties things up but...come on. Bad *The game carries the same base mechanics of KH2. Lots of attacks hit or don't hit. Enemies can juggle you if you get caught. I see so many chances where you could break free, but the mechanics don't let you. Yes, they added lots of beautiful attacks to look at, but the foundation they were built on belongs back in 2008. Not 2019. *Still confusing story telling despite knowing everything going in. *Too much fluff. Way too much. I get people like Disney and all that, but I can't accept that it takes 24 hrs, on Standard mode and rushing through Disney worlds, before I get to the actual story I've been waiting for. Easily a 4/5. Even with the bad mechanics and overstuffed fluff I still highly recommend it.

    There is a lot to this game from the characters, story, gameplay mechanics, et cetera. New players may feel a little lost throughout if you have not played the other games. Not to say that it is not welcoming new players, but I think you will not enjoy the entirety of it without playing the others. There are some returning Disney worlds and new ones. I rather liked how they did an original story in some of the worlds whereas the others were almost a replica of the movies such as Tangled and Frozen. Pirates of the Caribbean was also the same story as the movie, but it was my favorite world because you pilot a ship and actually explore islands. As for the main story, it is sprinkled a little here and there throughout the worlds until the third act. That is where it is all wrapped up and it is the main focus. I wish it focused more on the story since it is the end of the Xehanort saga. Not much endgame content as I would have liked compared to the second game, but there is some.

    Kingdom Hearts 3 is the imperfect but still great conclusion to the Xehanort arc of the series. Gameplay is fun but less so than previous entries (especially KH2, my favorite entry in the whole series). It lacks Final Fantasy influences but does set up some interesting things for the next game. The story is the typical conflux of interweaving character arcs, but for having so many characters to wrap up, it does a decent job at this. Game length was disappointing as you do not visit worlds a second time like in previous entries and this made the game feel shorter. Overall, Kingdom Hearts 3 perhaps did not live up to (relatively unattainable) levels of hype, but it was a blast to play and see how the Sora-Xehanort arcs ended. I recommend it to anyone who is a big fan of the series, but you should probably play at least some of the other entries in order to have a good understanding of the story (particularly Birth by Sleep, 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2, and Dream Drop Distance)

    I played the first kingdom hearts on the PS2, but did not finish it. Several kingdom hearts have since been released including spin offs. I wasn't really into the series because it was a bit corny, but I enjoyed the various characters in the series. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the game. The gameplay is not complicated and I liked the various special moves you can do depending on the keyblade. I liked the various characters in this game from Disney and the movies. The story can be a bit complicated depending on the games you played or the order in which you did them. If you have the opportunity, you can play the other games by buying the game Kingdom Hearts The Story So Far to understand the story. It's a fun game to play and the worlds you explore are interesting. Some of the dialogue may seem corny and annoying for some people. They do include some back story on the characters or story to the present. Overall, I recommend this game even if you didn't play the previous games.

    I have played all Kindom Hearts to this point. I was really excited for this game. I preordered the Deluxe Edition. The packaging was fantastic. You got a steel book and a normal case for the game, a book and a pin. It looked like it was going to be a home run. Remember the saying 'Dont judge a book by its cover'? Yeah, I assumed too quickly. While the game is good, it could be better. There are aspects of the game that are great... same battle system, new characters, wrapping up the story and it's pretty to look at. While it's great, it needs some work. The wall running is crazy. You do it all the time, even when you dont want to. Its annoying. You're wither walking or running, there's no in between, and the sweet spot on the joystick is easily missed. Some of the voice acting is horrible. Its seems forced, and its beyond frustrating. I'm only 5 hours in and starting to get into it, but that's my experience so far. I have high hope for this game, so I really hope it gets better.

    Kingdom Hearts 3 it's the epic conclusion of one of the most beloved franchises of video game history. I wish this to be the last game of Kingdom Hearts to ever release, it's ending it's just perfect, heartbreaking and so beautiful... I still can't believe how amazing this game has been. It's worst than Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2, but it's better than any other Kingdom Hearts out there. It does it's best to close each and every character plot and questions that Nomura has improvised though the years. What this game stills fails on it's the story telling, an usual mistake from Kingdom Hearts games; Lots of the dialogues are just extremely redundant. But, at the end, Kingdom Hearts 3 it's a great game, full of beautiful moments and it could be the definitive ending to this series that I love so much... This Deluxe Edition is really nice for the price. The box and case are high quality, and the art book is simple but beautiful. I'm sure Kingdom Hearts fans will appreciate it.

    Pros: All the worlds in this game came with its own keyblades and drive forms, and each had unique gameplay features not present in other worlds keeping things fresh and engaging. There's open world hubs for gummy ship travel as well with it's own secret bosses and challenges. Cons: This was supposed to be the culmination of story of kingdom heart series, instead, most of the game is sora dicking around on random Disney worlds for no real reason. In previous titles, they always did a great job tying the Disney worlds into the main story or at least gave us a reason why we need to go visit them. In this game, there is no such drive except that sora needs to go find the power of waking, which (minor spoiler) he doesn't find or even get a clue to on any of the Disney worlds. Once you finish the last Disney world, you enter the final act, which while good, feels very rushed and leaves you with way more questions then answers.

    Being a fan of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, I was very eager to play KH3. I like to view Kingdom Hearts 3 as an attempt by Square to generate interest in the franchise with a younger generation. There were a many newer features that I could have done without, but might appeal to those who love world exploration. The side quests themselves are relatively challenging and enjoyable. The graphics are undoubtedly beautiful. The main story itself seems to drag on but gives you something to look forward to. I would have liked to have more that I could have spent time on in the game, whether it be related to the main story or just different kinds of side quests. The gameplay mechanics were a novelty at the beginning, but just seemed extra after a while. In short: wonderful eye-candy, lacking in story, average gameplay.

    Let me preface this by saying I've been playing this series from the beginning and I absolutely adore it. That means it has a very soft place in my heart. Therefore, I adored this game. It feels like an old kingdom hearts game. If you've played the past ones, you will feel right at home with the controls. However, if you've never played before then this game is just ok. The controls can be clunky and the story is super cheesy and weirdly complicated. But if you love disney then definitely give this game a shot. You get to essentially play through some disney movies. Movies like frozen are in the game and you get to play through basically that entire movie. Toy story is also in this game and playing through gives you an entirely new story. So there is a lot to love here.

    Small disclaimer...DO NOT play this game if you don't know the whole story! People who just played KH1&2 are going to be lost! All the previous games have been made available on PS4 at this point in nice tidy collections. There's even a game called "The Story So Far." On top of that, youtube exists and you can sink as little as 20-30 minutes into learning the whole story (although that might not be enough for all the finer details). Anyway, if you know what's going on the game delivers what you've been waiting for over the last 13 years. Graphics are unbelievable! Finally a bunch of new worlds and characters! The story gives you exactly what you've needed all these years and hopefully you'll be satisfied like I was.

    I would recommend this to a friend
