    End of a Saga

    Kingdom Hearts 3 is the end of the Xehanort saga and ties up multiple storylines in the series, The game is best played if you've played the other games. Kingdom Hearts 2 came out in 2005, since then there has been a bunch other games in the series released on handheld and a remastered collection on PS3 and later on PS4 that have continued the series. Kingdom Hearts 3 is a good game but I don't think it's the best in the series. On the hardest difficulty I felt it was a little easy like I was playing on Standard. It needs more Optional Bosses this only has 1. Worlds are okay. Previous Kingdom Hearts games used Classic or Renaissance Era Disney Movies but KH3 uses Modern Disney/Pixar movies. I suggest first timers to get the Kingdom Hearts collection. Kingdom Hearts 3 isn't going anywhere, you can take your time and play through the other games and if you don't like them, you probably won't like KH3

    The evolution of Kingdom Hearts has stopped in 2005 with the release of KH2. While Kingdom Hearts 3 has become prettier with better graphics, it's beauty is only surface deep. The combat hasn't evolved since Kingdom Hearts 2 and it shows. While this game introduces new layers of combat, the core mechanics are still the same slow and clunky mechanics. I would have like to see a more smooth and fluid combat system in place for a sequel of this magnitude. The story is still incredibly convoluted and confusing. The voice acting is still awkward and the storytelling is dumbed down and spells out every moment for you, albeit it could be for the younger audiences. Despite all of the negative things, I am still enjoying my time with the game. It fun, goofy, and the nostalgia alone is worth it to me. Just don't expect it to be as good as you remember while wearing those rose-tinted glasses.

    ok before I begin I just want to say I'm not done with the game ... but at the point I'm in I love all worlds I'm in my last one I think. san fransokio. I love this saga and it's in my heart, I been reading mix reviews about it and I knew this was going to happen. so have not played the other games or just hating on it. I mean if you don't like a cheesy story don't pick it up and buy something else like resident evil example. Kingdom Hearts is known for this cheesy story and dark and light battle. this is a mix of all the combat functions from all the previous games. I mean they weren't going to make an exact game from the one previous ones. I have to say that this is a 10 for me for other it might be a 1 so if you have not a fan or not a Disney fan doesn't get it.

    A Finale That Was Worth The Wait

    Before playing KH3, I had to watch a few videos to recap the story of KH 1, 2, and all the other side games. Because the game took a while to come out, it feels like there was a lot to catch up on. However, when you play KH3, it seems like the story picks up immediately where it left off. The benefits are that you can see how amazing the graphics are. The game play has the same fighting style but with a lot more summons and abilities. The combination of fighting styles definitely add another layer of replayability to the game until you find the one you want to stick with or keep trying to see which ones are the most fun. The Disney characters you encounter in KH3 are a nice pick although some of their stories are very similar to their actual movies which may bother some players seeking new adventures. Overall, the game is a nice ending to the saga.

    I really enjoy the Kingdom Hearts games, though I do hate the water levels. This game is full of twists and turns and intrigue. A very fun game to play and it's also fun to watch it being played. The only bad thing I have to say about any of the Kingdom Hearts games is the annoying Donald and Goofy voices. They make my ears bleed. But all the other voice acting is great, even some better than the originals. Additionally, what's not to love about ANYTHING that has to do with Final Fantasy! Full Disclosure: it took my boyfriend only 2 days (if that) to beat the game and less than a week to collect everything (which is saying something because he is not a completionist, but he enjoyed this game so much, he couldn't stop playing it until he got every tiny, hard to find item. And no, he didn't use any walkthroughs).

    If you are a fan of the Kingdom Hearts series you are inevitably going to buy this game regardless of what I tell you, but really all you need to know is that it was worth the wait. There are so many new mechanics introduced in the combat that while are helpful don't feel forced at all so if you were really inclined you could realistically play this more or less like old school Kingdom Hearts 1. So far the story is pretty great too and they include a catch up menu so players who have not played any of the past entries can have at least a small idea of what is going on. My only real complaint is that the game tends to be a little on the easy side since it isn't difficult to end up overleveled so my advice is to only play this game on proud mode to ensure you are challenged throughout the adventure. All in all this is a must have for fans of the series.

    This game screams epic as you explore various Disney worlds each with its own story. Battle system is well designed and a lot of fun. If you’re of at least average ability when playing video games, I’d recommend playing on Proud mode. This is the hardest setting but in my opinion is the equivalent of medium/normal for most titles. Just a heads up. The other settings are too easy. While the stories within the Disney worlds are awesome as I said above, the general plot is kinda sloppy and confusing. Thankfully you don’t need to be a Kingdom Hearts guru to enjoy everything it has to offer. This is definitely one of the best games you can buy this year and it will prove to be an enjoyable and memorable experience. If you can get over the sloppy backstory and just enjoy the ride you’ll be fine. I highly recommend it.

    I have been in love with KH since the beginning! This game is not perfect there are errors and annoying talks but overall it's the beauty and the game play, story (still doesn't make sense lol). I love this game just for the worlds mainly it does seem a lot easier than the other games some bosses were hard but after maybe 3-4 tries, I won. The other games made me so angry and I quit playing because I couldn't beat a certain boss this one not so much and it seems shorter to me. The gummi ship feels like a true ship in this game you can really fly it to get to the other worlds. I do like flying around and being able to choose to fight or not too. I wish they didn't talk when you walked pass every ingredient, emblem. Sometimes they do get in the way but I love the graphics. I would still play this in the future once I completed the game.

    Our family loves the Kingdom Hearts series. We most especially loved KH 1, 2 and Birth By Sleep. This game takes a lot of the best parts of those games and combines it. The only warning is the cut scenes come often and are very long. And you can go way too long between opportunities to save if you want to play for shorter spurts at a time. But you can't play for much less than an hour at a time if you want to get anywhere with the game. The graphics are amazing, and the new worlds give some great interest. Love the way they finally brought the stories together. Still doesn't make full sense of it all, but a whole lot better. Loved when they finally get the Birth By Sleep characters back together since that has probably been our favorite.

    Too many cut scenes

    Honestly, I understand why there might be a lot of cut scenes in the beginning to explain what has happened or catch people up but the cut scenes are slow and drawn out with pretty average voice acting. There are also far too many of them. I get to actually fight things for about 3 minutes tops and then there is a 10 minute cut scene. It's hard to keep interest and momentum in this game and I finally made it to the second world which is the actual start of the game (the first world was really slow prologue). Now, the gameplay itself is good and pretty straight forward hack and slash with a few techniques thrown in, but I never feel like I get to actually PLAY much because of the cut scenes. Just let me experience the story ffs. It's the difference between being told and shown. It's just one long movie at this point. Ugh.

    I'll be completely honest. I'm new to the series and don't know the story. I purchased this for the Disney Worlds and combat. I am not disappointed and it's well worth it for that reason. The combat is fun, the Disney worlds are fantastic and enjoyable cut scenes make it seem like you're watching a Disney movie as you tag alongside Goofy and Donald. It's great seeing all of these characters interact with each other. The RPG elements were also surprising to me. Equipping keyblades, equipment, magic, potions etc. on your journey was a big plus. I've read the main story is complicated and convoluted, but not knowing the story didn't hurt my experience. I really didn't know what I was buying and it's a must purchase if you're a Disney fan.

    First, the good part: the combat is fun and the Disney characters look super pretty. But everything else is bad. The plot is more of a mess than ever. The voice acting is - with notable exceptions - mostly bland and boring. There are NO Final Fantasy characters in this one. The special attacks are repetitive even for a JRPG. None of the levels or plot points connect, because it’s all one-shot episodes - which might be a strength since (as mentioned before) the plot is a mess. I use to LOVE these games. This one was gimmicky and boring. And even the Disney characters don’t have original things to say...you’re just forced into the actual plot of the actual movies, but it’s done so haphazardly that you need to know the scene being referenced to care.

    I played both KH 1/2 in my childhood and had fond memories of playing both of those games. They seemed quite hard at the time, but looking back it was probably just cause I was a child. This game came way too late for fans of the franchise and people new to it, I don't feel will enjoy it that much. The fact that Disney is a part of this game means that it is intended for children to play, which means the mechanics are super easy -- so easy a child can do it. I would say most of the fans of this game are playing it for the story line and Disney worlds, which was partly the original appeal of the game. However, I didn't enjoy this game as much as KH1/2 and probably would not have been happy if this was my first KH and I just bought it at full price.

    Disney worlds elevate a flawed fun game

    Kingdom Hearts is really a PS2 franchise. 3 still has the weird gameplay quirks and camera issues from over a decade ago. But the gameplay is still fast, fun, and frenetic even if you can’t always see where you’re going. The story is also very complicated. This is over 10 years of side games, there’s time travel and alternate versions of characters, it’s a lot to catch up on and the game doesn’t do a great job of that. What makes up for that are all the Disney worlds. If you’re a Disney fan it’s still worth checking out. From Donald and Goofy to Hercules and Woody to Rapunzel and Baymax, exploring those worlds and spending time with those characters are still what set the series apart.

    Early impressions have been very good, although for a game released in 2019 I had noticed some issues I thought were worth mentioning. I've noticed that the english voices have been done kind of lazily and I understand that a lot of work is involved in doing it perfectly, but this game has been in development for a LONG time and I guess I was just expecting 2019 level of voice matching and seamless conversations. Other issue I had was with movement still getting bugged out on uneven surfaces in the Environment. There are too small issues I have had but the game has been exceptional besides those and is continuing to exceed my expectations in terms of character/story depth, graphics and combat.

    Alright, starting with technicalities. - No frame rate issues, using regular PS4. - The 4K Enhancement makes this game look very rough on anything lower. Very pixelated anti-aliasing attempt on 4k graphics when downscaled. - Beautiful, beautiful HDR - Why is this game so loud compared to other games. I have to put the volume to 4... out of 100. The game itself: Fun if you are a casual fan. Disappointing if you are a dedicated fan. Story is complex and hard to follow. Even if you've played every other game in the series it will still be a bit confusing. Gameplay is kind of easy too. But...combat in KH is always fun.

    Preface: I have not finished this game, only about 2 worlds into it. I’ve been a fan of this series since I was 10 years old. The combat was fun and of course the Disney tie-ins were great. I like the same features of this new entry, however I can’t help but cringe at some of the dialogue. Voice lines feel very delayed, and the actual writing can be pretty terrible. The pros of this game definitely come from the combat and how fast and fluid everything feels during it. So give it a shot if you’ve been a fan of the previous games, I don’t think it’ll disappoint. And if you haven’t played the previous ones it will still be fun, you just won’t know what is happening in the story.

    I've been a fan of this franchise and I've been highly anticipating this game's release. I sent in my pre-order and got in the day of release. This is a fantastic game. It puts an end to the Xehanort saga and delivers. The graphics are phenomenal. The gameplay is nostalgic while also incorporating new features. I wish it delivered on the story a little bit more in the individual Disney worlds but lets be honest, if you're a fan than you just wanted closure to the main story. I really hope this game has DLC's in the future as it definitely opens itself to that opportunity. You won't regret getting this game.

    Having played Kingdom Hearts I and II on the PlayStation 2 I can safely say that I have been waiting a looooooooong time for this. Now that is out I can say that this is great gam.e but not quite the masterpiece that I thought it was going to be The engine that it runs on seems a little dated (more like PS3 era) and there are some design choices, like the save system that seem really antiquated, especially when compared to games like God of War or Spider Man. Again, if you like KH there is a lot to like here, just not the mind blowing experience that some of the fans were hoping for. This game plays very similar to the older games with a few tweaks here and there. Cheers,

    I was a little sad at first, knowing most of the worlds in KH3 were going to be focused on Pixar films. I'm a sucker for the older movies and I knew the change would be pretty drastic. After playing the game. I am -so glad- they partnered with Pixar. Not only were the graphics top notch, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Pixar themed worlds more than I could have ever imagined. KH3 delivered the emotions I felt playing KH1 and KH2, I am not at all disappointed, in fact, I'm left craving more content. I can't wait for future content involving the Kingdom Hearts series. 10/10 from someone who has been a fan from the beginning.
