    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.

    Easily Worth the Wait

    This newest numbered entry into the KH franchise has been long overdue. Having been a huge fan of the second game, I had to manage expectations going into this one. Combat is the greatest selling point, and though I feel as though no game after 2 ever felt quite as refined in this aspect, 3 presents a myriad of options, giving endless variety. The worlds feel large and detailed, the art style is amazingly flexible ( Pirates world and Toy Story world in particular deserve a shout out), and the battles have a great feeling of scale. KH2 remains my favorite, but this was a much-needed worthy ending to the saga.

    A big-budget, high-production-value mess

    I'm only a casual fan of the Kingdom Hearts series (which is hard because the story revolves around minor plot details from random spin-off titles), so big fans might disregard my opinion on this game, but overall, I found it to be a great spectacle with lots of huge action set pieces in well-designed worlds that are fun to be in for a while, but the story is wildly confusing for anyone not 100% committed to the franchise. Anyone will have fun if they like this type of gameplay, but just know that you're getting involved in a dense, confusing narrative.

    this game is the final stage for the darke seeker saga. and we been waiting for this for a while and it was worth the wait guys. this game got me crying at the end ...the disney worlds are amazing and the music is so catchy. worlds are big and open alot to do .... the game is not perfect has his flows but for me there minor stuff , like no FF charecters or some voice actors not speaking well i know why now but it ok i guess. this game is more for hardcore fans that has played all the previoues games newcombers will get lost so i recommend picking up the story so far with 1.5 2.5 2.8 ..

    The wait between Kingdom Heart II and III was certainly a long one. Outside of Duke Nukem I can't recall any series having such a gap between releases. Unlike Duke however Kingdom Hearts III does not disappoint or fail to live up to the hype. The smartest thing Square/Disney did was maintain what made the series memorable while being able to bring it into the new age. The introduction of the newer Disney franchises into the game play helps to bring no small amount of characters that old fans, and particularly the new ones will know and be drawn to.

    Kingdom Hearts 3 is finally here and it does not disappoint. While the story is great, it's not as satisfying for newcomers, but you can still enjoy it. The gameplay is chaotic in the best way. There's so much on screen action, and it ll feels great. The worlds are fantastic. Disney fans will not be disappointed. KH fans will get what they've been waiting for. Unfortunately Final Fantasy fans may be a bit disappointed, since the series takes a back seat in this entry. The original story for the Kingdom Hearts series is the main focus here though. And after all the hype, this game does not disappoint. You

    Right out of the gates the graphics are amazing. The Disney worlds are spot on in story and character development. Maybe one of the few drawbacks is that the stories in most of the worlds are copy/pasted from the movies and not original stories to Kingdom Hearts. The game does suffer from some pacing issues due to the number of cutscenes, but the combat is tried and true. If anything, the game may be too easy, even on the hardest difficulty are there hardly any concerns about dying. While my rating is 5 stars, I would set it at 9/10. The game certainly doesn't deserve 4 stars, but also not perfection.

    KH3 was 100% worth the wait, the effort of development and fluidity put into the game is amazing. For having a normal old PS4 and not the new ones with better hardware, the game still runs so smoothly and all the animations are beautiful. My only regret is not having a 4kTV or PS4 Pro to experience the game in 4k. If you are not an existing KH player, the game doesn't do that great a job of explaining past events, you're better off watching some videos online with recaps. Even having played KH and KH2 but none of the handheld games in between, the refresher definitely helps to know what is going on.

    I am enjoying the game but I am dissapointed that every 3-5 battles there is a 5-10 minute cutscene trying to explain what is going on. Kingdom Hearts is trying to wrap a 17 year story stretched across multiple platforms, all that are canon in some way and it is incredibly hard to follow. I don’t mind putting in effort to understand story but I never owned some of the systems the other games came out on so I have to try to fit large missing gaps with the included cutscenes, the “story so far” sections and keep my phone next to me constantly looking up whoever that guy is that just showed up.

    This game has exceeded all of my expectations and they were pretty high to begin with. Graphics blew me away as did the story-line and game play. The great thing about the game is you can play it how you want. You can rush through it, you can search each area to find EVERYTHING, you can use magic and stealth, you can hack-n-slash your way through the game.....it is up to you. Yes, the story line is very complex (and you should read up on the prior games as a refresher), but you can figure it out. I only play it for the Disney worlds anyway really. Could not recommend this game any more.

    Kingdom Hearts 3 for a longtime fan of the series is the culmination of many years of playing off console games and suffering through a frustratingly complicated story. However, the pull here is still the same... you get to play a role in Disney worlds. In that, it certainly shines. For some, this may not be the pull... and to that I say, "why are you playing, then?" The relationship between Sora, Donald, and Goofy is second to none. My only gripe is that it might feel a tad short in some respects. There are rumors about possible DLC coming but I feel uncomfortable with that notion.

    I pre-ordered the game as a birthday present for my husband who has been waiting a long time for the third installment of Kingdom Hearts. I was happy with the fact that the game was ready and waiting for me the very same day it was released, especially because from what I understand this is supposed to be a big game, so my husband was worried that he wouldn't be able to get his hands on a copy quickly. He was surprised when I handed him this gift. On top of the game which came quickly and good condition there was an added surprise key chain that came with it and my husband enjoyed it.

    We finally get the 3rd game for KH series. I grew up with this series since I was in middle school! I fell in love with the series when I played it at my friend's house. The graphics are amazing and the am enjoying the story line so far. The only thing that bothers me is the abilities that he can summon, which is a bunch. I try not to use them because it makes the game somewhat easy even though I am playing it on Pro mode. Sometimes, the cut scenes are are just frequent... Like I know I can skip it but I know I should not or else I will miss out.

    I have been waiting for this ever since I finished the second one 12 years ago. I had only played KHII and had zero interest in playing any of the additional games outside of 1 and 2. But luckily, I have my husband, who likes to research things, and we played through (most of) the games together. I would HIGHLY recommend for anyone who is interested in this game to get The Story So Far and play through all of those. Graphics are amazing and so is the storyline. I just wish they found a better way to convey the story outside of the endless cut scenes.

    It's playable and scratches that itch people get for wanting to collect things. Dialogue could use some work, but that's par for the series as a whole. If you've never played a Kingdom Hearts title and are starting with this game, the story's gonna be a bit confusing for you, but then this is expected even if you have played the previous ones and all the off-shoot releases. All that said, you don't really play these for ground-breaking gameplay or for a well developed story. You indulge in this series because it makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

    Short Game, After 15 year wait time expected more

    Don’t get me wrong, the game itself was excellent. Kept very true to the original but added some fun new combat styles which kept the game interesting The issue I have is the length. I successfully complete the story mode in 26hours. I have been waiting patiently for 15 years for this game... and much of that timeframe is spent watching various cutscenes. Would be excellent for a younger gamer who loves Disney but I don’t feel like it meets the expectations of people who had the opportunity to play Kingdom Hearts 1 when it first launched. Just wanted more

    This game has excellent graphics, and the gameplay is fast paced and exciting, albeit the combat system can get repetitive over time. Where this game falls short of expectations is the story. The writing is poor, with many forced jokes, cheesy lines, and storylines you can see coming from a mile away. In addition, there are an incredible amount of cutscenes that, while cinematically pleasing, break up the pace of gameplay far too often. This game is worth the purchase if you are a pre-existing fan already, but earlier editions are more worth the time.

    disappointing finale in KH series

    compared to kh 1 and 2, this game felt like it was seriously lacking something. the graphics in the game look amazing, but there's really not much else to talk about... the worlds were pretty lackluster aside from one (which i thought would actually be the worst world to explore), and i pretty much found myself zooming through the game to just beat it for the sake of finishing the series. wish i could say more positive things about the game, but it left me feeling extremely unsatisfied.

    Playing KH3 is great. If you loved the gameplay in the previous entries in the series, you'll love this. Story-wise, the Disney stuff seems mostly disjointed from the rest of what's going on with Sora and the gang, but most worlds still keep your interest. My main issue with the game is that it was originally sold as a finale, but many plot points are left dangling as obvious signs to a sequel of some kind. Looking forward to that game too because I love the series, but not what I expected based on what they originally seemed to build this up as.

    Like many of you - I have waited a long long time to pick this game up and I’m very excited for it! It’s got the same charm and great fighting system of the first two games with memorable worlds to play in as well. I will say, the story/dialogue is still confusing at times and has far too many lengthy cut scenes. But this did not keep me away from enjoying the game and still added to making it more of an experience with the familiar voice acting work. Great all around work and conclusion!
