    This game is lame based on the sole fact that you have to put it in a playstation to play it.

    Game is good, not exactly as good as I was hoping as for since the original but it was fun. A couple of the worlds are insanely boring and made to attract a much younger audience for sales, but that's business. It's worth playing through a couple times.

    The game was beautifully done but the action becomes boring after a while. The game did not live up to its expectation.

    I waited ages for this game to be released. It is a boring, easy slog with animation that looks 12 years old

    This is by far the most fun and thrilling Kingdom Hearts game to date. The story is a big let down with a lame "conclusion," though.

    not a game I have personally played for very long but have played a little and watched my wife play alot. the graphics are amazing and the game play is much more fluid than the previous titles. the only reason I give it 4 stars is because they still have that stupid space ship you are forced to use between worlds that is just tedious and annoying.

    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.

    Too mindless and easy coming from a KH fan

    Easy on proud, mindless repetitive and boring. No optional content to boot and despite the scope of the things the graphics don't excuse the game's performance. It's somewhat disappointing as the big entry we've been waiting for, but chances are if you're a huge fan you've already bought it. If not but you're really curious to try it, just wait for a sale, the game isn't quite worth it at its full price, despite it's length and scope.

    I've waited 13 years for this game to come out and I was very disappointed... Let me tell you the reasons why. 1. Cut scenes are ridiculously long, boring, and confusing so mid way through the game, I started to skip all the cut scenes. @@@@@@@@ Thank God they have an option for that! @@@@@@@ 2. Graphics are better from the previous Kingdom Hearts on PS3 but not by much. I was expecting graphics to be way nicer... 3. Game play was very confusing at times because you don't really know where you should be going or what the objective is since there aren't any tips that are shown on the screen once they tell you at the beginning of a mission. 4. Upgrade menu and item management is a pain and it takes forever because they don't compare any items with what you have equipped and you don't know if you need certain items or if you should sell them. Overall, if you're in love with the series and want to know the ending of the confusing Kingdom Hearts story line, save your money and watch a YouTube video of the whole KH3 story. Trust me when I say this and you have been warned!

    This game is garbage - story is all over the place, characters act like they don't care, there's zero explanation of the random plot holes, and the Frozen side-story? You just have to sit there and listen to "Let It Go" ALL THE WAY THROUGH. It's not just a terrible game, it's a disappointment for fans all around. I remember the first Kingdom Hearts - it was INCREDIBLE. The story was well-planned, the actors cared about their jobs, and most importantly it took SO long to complete. This one seems like after, what, 13 years? They just kinda threw it all together. The graphics - don't get me wrong - are incredible, the fighting is also a solid 7/10 but there's just no reason to continue one, it's like you're playing through an episode of The Walking Dead, it's boring brain-dead gaming. Do yourself a favor, don't expose yourself to Ebola aka Kingdom Hearts 3. Grab Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War, or replay The Witcher III. I bought this game for my girlfriends birthday at the end of January. She's almost done and we're halfway through February. . Come on Square, rethink your entire existence on this trash. What a joke.

    Perhaps the nostalgia has worn off, or perhaps the creators have lost their touch. I'm not sure. Thirteen years later and this game was kind of just alright. It felt more like interactions between cut scenes more than anything else. The linear paths have returned, recreating a lack of exploration. With all the very beautiful designed Disney worlds, they're all unnecessary in comparison to the actual story line and have no effect on the plot. My biggest complaints: The Toy Box, Toy Story's world, is a prime example of something that feels wrong about the game. Missing is Zorg or any other villain. In comes Square Enix with their own villains. The level is almost entirely custom to the game, borrowing very little from Toy Story itself. In Rapunzel's world, Kingdom of Corona, she goes from being a formidable companion to just a boring stationary NPC after her hair is cut. In Arandelle, with all her magical capabilities, Elsa isn't a fighter at all. She's barely in it. The final bosses of each world feel like they missed the point of their world's themselves. On top of that, the dialogue still doesn't translate as beautifully as it could given the right writers. Graphically, though, this is one gorgeous game. On the technical spectrum, also incredible. Every move lands right, and there's so much going on too. Also, the The Carribean, the Pirates world, is a breath of fresh air and great with it's ship battles. Overall, I'd give a 7/10. It concludes the story beautifully, but it's less of a game and more of a story with small bouts of game play in between.

    Not the strong conclusion to Kingdom Hearts!

    The good: - This game still succeeds in charming your pants off, primarily thanks to the recognizable Disney/Pixar characters spread throughout the many colorful worlds. You can't help but smile when Hades 'poofs' onto the scene (voiced by James Woods) or when Jiminy Cricket hops up to offer some advice. - The gameplay is really fun, with many different options to light up the screen with big-bang attacks (partner attacks, attractions, etc.), while also just letting you hack, slash, or shoot your way to victory. It's exciting, colorful, and not overly challenging even on Proud mode. The bad: - The story is convoluted/confusing at times especially if you haven't played any of the earlier games in the series. The dialogue is slow, the writing dull, and the cut scenes at times drag on. - All the explanatory content regarding fights, magic use, form changes, summons, etc. is A LOT. And it all gets thrown at you early in the game as just simple text to read/scroll through with optional tutorials. It's all a bit much for a game that essentially boils down to a button-masher. - There is definitely a bit of laziness that's evident throughout the game, and if you compare it to some of last years top games, it just doesn't have the same level of quality as those (thinking Nier Automata). Everything from the slightly sub-par graphics to the overly-varied menus and mini-games to the blank-and-a-bit-slow load screens. None of these things are terrible, but considering the amount of money and time that went into making this game they simply just shouldn't exist. - To be honest, this game no matter how much I want to love it's a bit disappointing. I've waited 17 years (as have many of you) for this long delayed title. The game play isn't bad, but it feels sparse in comparison to all the cut scenes filled with recent Disney hits. Honestly it feels like Square-Enix didn't make great use of their creative talents to make a game that will live up to the Kingdom Hearts name. I remember all the hype, music and energy that oozed from the 1st KH in 2002 even in the commercial. The first and second Kingdom Hearts had their cut scenes, but they also had a strong story. Story that didn't involve peddling the latest Disney franchises. Even with worlds pulled from the movies like Frozen, Tangled, Monsters Inc, Toy Story, and Pirates of the Caribbean it's lacking in any real story merit. Sure the visuals are nice, but where is the game play experience and storytelling of the previous games? It just wasn't a cohesive mix of Disney and Square.

    A so-so installment. Wait for the Final Mix.

    I'd give Kingdom Hearts III a generous 5.5/10. Definitely wait for the Final Mix to come before buying this game as it's like FF15, half completed and hella easy. Sure, KH3's graphics and scenery are absolutely stunning. And sure, the music is absolutely amazing! However, beyond that, it's an honest let-down and disappointment in the story/plot, in character development, and in playability. It just feels rushed and uncompleted (ironic for a game 5 years in the making). For starters, Square Enix cut MANY things from the game. Tetsuya Nomura stated that there would be well over 90+ hours of content, when in actuality; it's closer to 35 -45 hours of content. You literally spend 2/3's of the entire game traversing Disney worlds and goofing around which none of it matters in the slightest and doesn't really do anything at all to progress the plot or the characters (Note: you can clearly tell which worlds they spent far more time and resources on than others. Some worlds, only get one tiny little area). On that note, the worlds that people actually wanted to fully explore in all their 4K HD glory were basically reduced to just backgrounds for cut scenes and for the plot (Realm of Darkness, Land of Departure, Keyblade Graveyard, The World That Never Was, The Mysterious Tower, The Final World, Scala ad Caelum, and to a lesser extent, Twilight Town). Then, all the major plot points and major stuff happens quickly and almost back-to-back in the last 1/3 of the game. Before you know it, you're fighting the final boss out of the blue and the game is over. Heroes and Villains fly in and out of the story so quick that you just might miss them if you blink. The reunions of 1) Aqua, Ven, and Terra; and 2) Axel, Roxas, and Xion; are completely rushed and lack any substance or playability. Basically, those characters are brought back at the last minute for fan service and to make sense of the plot before moving on. Hell, don't even get me started on the characters. The dialogue exchange and voice acting is good in certain places, but is often just cringy and awkward. Many of the characters don't even have much of a personality *ahem*. Kairi *ahem*. Speaking of which, the characters: Kairi, Lea, Riku, Aqua, Ventus, Terra, and King Mickey in KH3 are basically weak, useless, and need constant saving. The only exceptions to this are Roxas and Xion who will completely win the fight on their own and heal you without you (the player) having to do anything. In fact, the Disney characters in the worlds you visit are significantly more powerful than the KH3 characters are. Minigames are another problem. Minigames are supposed to be fun and enjoyable challenges that offer additional rewards when added to a game for optional playability. However, that's not the case when multiple minigames are pushed into the main story and are required to progress said story. Furthermore, Square Enix made the game insanely easy, even on hard mode. Fights required little-to-no planning or preparation. I never even died once on hard mode or had to retry an encounter. Going to attractions, I understand that attractions were supposed to be cool and epic, but not when you get like three prompts for an attraction every single bloody fight. It got annoying and boring rather quick. I only used the meals once, in the final battle. I didn't even need to use the meals because everything was too easy. Lastly, the game mechanics are still clearly broken. You can still easily button-mash X/A to win the game. Also, a player can obtain 99 Moogle Post Cards within 1 hour for only 5,000 Munny; they can easily obtain level 99 within an hour; and they can easily and quickly get 999,999 Munny. @@@@@ sighs* Look, it's an okay game. It's fine to like a game and it's fine to dislike a game. There are many people who liked KH3 and many who didn't. It has good and bad qualities. However, you do have to recognize and realize all of its flaws and shortcomings. Because many of us who are long-time hardcore KH fans and who grew up with the series will tell you, KH1 and KH2 are significantly better/longer than KH3.
