    Underwhelming end to the series

    While I enjoyed the first two in the series, KH3 has been a very big disappointment for me. The game moves at a glacial pace riddled with long and uneventful cutscenes and repetitive combat.

    KH3 is a vibrant game with exciting worlds to explore. Combat is user friendly for beginners, only downside is complex plot and lengthy cut scenes.

    Now I was extremely hyped for this game but I was let down sadly, the combat is good however there are times where certain mechanics should not be available during certain parts. Story was a huge mess as well due to the inclusion of the mobile game and just very flat story, music was okay nothing to crazy. Definitely wait for a sale to pick this up

    What's with all these "games journalists" giving kingdom hearts 3 near perfect scores? The load screens are intolerably long and clunky, the voice acting is the worse in the series, it makes heavy use of cutscenes taken directly out of older games so it'll go from pretty current gen graphics to crap by today standards, there an early cut scene that gets cut off before a character is even done talking and goes to a load screen, the writing is atrocious, the worlds I've been to so far aren't so much cute and entertaining as cringe-worthy. They tried to cram every single mechanic used in every KH game into this one (minus card-based battle) plus stuck ten more new ones in for good measure so now the menu is way too complicated. It feels like there is way too much going on with no direction at all. It's like no one said "No" to any idea and as a result, they couldn't even finish the game after how many years in development and ended up rushing the first sort-of playable version out to retailers. Literally the only really good part of the game is the combat and exploration but they interrupt you every 5 steps with an awkward cutscene and when you are in combat, from the get-go, the game gives you almost unlimited access to special moves that kill most enemies immediately and make bosses super easy (just hit x for a while then hit triangle and done). It really hurts reviewers credibility when they give good reviews to something just because the box has the name of their favorite franchise on it. They did the same thing with Final Fantasy 13 and years later many of those reviews wrote post disavowing the score they gave it because they were blinded by fandom. This game is a 6, 8 if you want to be really generous, but I'm seeing more and more 9s and 10s. in a few years, the authors of those reviews will be correcting themselves.

    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.

    Combat has been revamped, so you now have even more ways to smack around Heartless. Everything feels nice and fresh while also keeping the good aspects of the older games. Music is also excellent as always. Definitely something to check out, especially if you;ve been waiting over a decade like most of us have.

    Not the best one in the series, but still a good game. Great story, great characters. Combat is "flashy" and lacks difficulty, but still fun. Game could have used more post-game content. If you find the game on sale, it's a solid buy.
