    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.

    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.

    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.

    Kingdom Hearts 3 is better than what I expected

    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.

    Nice Deluxe Edition For A Great Game

    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.

    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.

    My Childhood Returns

    This game reminds me so much old my childhood. Back in middle school I played Kingdom Hearts I so much. It feels good to finally get a new version of the game. However, there are a few things I do not like: 1) The combat system is very spammy and button mashy. You can 99% of the time get by pressing “X” (regular attack) and then “Triangle” (special attack) whenever it shows up. 2) Some of the stories feel very forced. Playing through Toy Story world was a tough thing to do. Maybe that world wasn’t very pieced together. Either way if you love Disney/Pixar this is a great game for you! Also great for younger gamers since the gameplay is not overlay complicated.

    Nice extras for KH fans

    Although this deluxe edition doesn't come with a lot, it still has some nice extras for Kingdom Hearts fans. The box is very high quality, with a matte texture on the outside and a logo that is holographic and slightly raised from the rest of the box. The artbook is simple but elegant and comes with a nice foreword from Nomura. The SteelBook Case has a nice design on the inside and outside, although I wish it could've been more colorful like the default box art. The pin is also a nice addition for those who like to collect those. All in all, it's a decent deluxe addition for the fans, but not something I would shell out the extra money for if you're not super invested in the series.

    This actually met my expectations. Waiting nearly 15 years for a sequel, combined with constant “spinoff” titles (which were vital to the overall narrative) I was worried, but it pulled through. It’s gorgeus, it’s fun, and quite immersive. If you like Disney and Pixar films, then this a series you should follow. It’s a roller coaster. My only main issue is the low resolution and inconsistent frame rate on the enhanced consoles despite its relatively cartoony and linear level design. If RDR2 can hit native 4K I don’t see why this could not. I would’ve taken a 1080p/60 or 4K/30 option, either is a fair tradoff. Other than the technical stuff, it’s a must buy.

    This was a very long wait but seems to have been well worth it. The game itself actually feels like you're playing a pixar/disney animation movie. The use of the Unreal 4 engine brought an aesthetic to the series that can only be labeled "fantastic". Great for any Kingdom Hearts fan. I must say, that if you haven't played the previous games, you might get lost in this game about the events that have happened (some veterans of the series feel the same) lol. For all those that want to try out the series for the first time or the veterans that just want to refresh the story in their mind, the original 9 games were also remastered in one package for the ps4.

    Amazing game for Kingdom Hearts Fans

    Kingdom Hearts 3 is the perfect conclusion to the series. The gameplay is insane and the story is amazing. For those who have played every previous Kingdom Hearts game and understand the story then you're going to really enjoy this game. If you haven't played the previous games then Kingdom Hearts 3 won't make any sense to you since there is a lot of lore. But if you want to play the game just for the gameplay and not worry about the story then go for it but don't think that you can understand the story just from playing this game because you probably won't. Overall I really enjoyed the game and it's probably my favorite kingdom Hearts game.

    This game is the conclusion to the dark seeker saga we have been waiting for. If you are a fan of the series you will love this game. If you are a new comer well you will probably like the combat and game play as well as the dinsey stuff but as far as understand the over all story that might be hard. They do provide videos in the menus to catch you up somewhat but it is recommended to get the kingdom hearts the story so far collection that way you can play all the games and get all the story. Just because it is KH3 does not mean it is the 3rd game in the series. It is actually the 11th I think. Anyway its fun and I am happy.

    This game delivered on every teaser trailer. The 14 year wait since the Kingdom Hearts II managed to make the long delay worth it. The story may not make sense to people who haven't played earlier installments, but there are flashback scenes to give a brief summary. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but there is plenty of material for every age group to enjoy, and Disney material never fails to entertain. The game difficulty on Proud Mode is actually intense, and Normal Mode is simple enough for young children to enjoy without giving up. If you want a game with days worth of gameplay that will keep you busy, this is it.

    The deluxe edition is only $20. If you're a big fan of kingdom hearts, this is a no-brainer! Comes with a pin, steelbook, and artbook. I also love the exclusive packaging with the foil and embossed lettering! I think the artbook is a bit basic, but I love the front/back covers! I do an unboxing video of this product VS the standard edition on my channel lil rice muncher gaming on youtube if you would like to compare.

    If youre a fan or have played the previous Kingdom Hearts games and have enjoyed them then you can buy this without a second thought. Everything from the graphics to the combat to the side activities to the story has improved immensly! A cool thing about the Deluxe Edition is you get the regular case with the cover art as well as the Steelbook so you can display it however you wish. I cannot recommend this game enough. If youre new to the series then start with the 1.5 + 2.5 collection or The Story So Far collection either will fill you in on what you need to know before this game.

    When I first saw Kingdom Hearts 3 I was worried that all the rides and magic was going to be too much visually to the point where you couldn't tell what was going on and all the enemies were just dead. But I was happily surprised that it wasn't the case. The magic and skills are very vibrant, but does not take away from the game play at all. A lot of voice actors came back for KH3 as well, so that was extremely exciting, but you can also tell for those who changed or not voiced at all (Phil in Hercules..). The music also fit the game better than I thought it would when I heard they hired Skrillex.

    Magical Return

    I have been a fan of the series since the first entry, and KH3 brings all the fun and magic you could hope for out of your love for the series. I would say the gameplay is the best upgrade to the game. Certain moves can become repetitive, but combat is large and beautiful to watch. I've noticed a couple laughable plot holes so far, but they were mostly self contained within the world story and not the overarching main storyline. While the combat is beautiful, the game doesn't pop as much on the PS4 Pro as I would've liked, and is a downgrade compared to games like GoW and Horizon: Zero Dawn visually.

    I have been waiting on this game for WAAY too long as I've been a fan of the game since Kingdom Hearts (KH) 1 some 16 years ago. This game is like Final Fantasy meets Disney (and now Pixar) in a VERY convoluted story. This is great for KH fans but you'll be lost if you've never played the previous games because, to be honest, I get a bit confused as well and I've played all the previous games. lol. This is NOT the game to start with, (not even sure why you'd even have this on XBOX) but it's a joy to play especially if you like Disney as they intertwine original stories with their own story.

    First off, if you are a fan of the KH series then don't even bother reading. You will love this game. It has all the Disney fan service, convoluted story points and random mini games that you need. It does a good job of tying off all loose ends and then introducing a bunch more. If you are new to the series this isn't a bad game it's just not going to make a lot of sense. The Disney worlds are the best they've ever been and the game play is jam packed with crazy action moves and spells. You may want to watch some recap videos or play 1, 2, BBS and 2.8 at the very least before playing.

    Kingdom Hearts III is as beautiful and touching as the Walt Disney animated classics of eveyone's childhood. This game has all new Disney worlds (Big Hero 6 is my favorite!) which include new Disney companions. There are several new game play mechanics as well as returning mechanics like the Gummy Ship. I highly recommend that any series fan check this entry out. It's easily the best KH game in a long time. Newcomers to the series should play the KH collections on PS4 or watch recaps online to actually understand the story of KH3. Check it out!
