    Very in line with past Kingdom Hearts

    A little on the easy/overly simple dialogue side sprinkled with random heavy subjects. Fun overall though!

    I was excited for this game to come out, but once I started playing it I couldn't bear it. It looks great, but between the cutscenes being off (cause the audio comes in too late after they moved their mouth) and the gameplay/dialogue being super simplistic I couldn't play past the first world. I wanted this game to be great, but it just feels like Square and Disney pushed this product out for kids and not real gamers.

    Having been a KH fan since day 1, I was really looking forward to this game. It does a fine job of ending whatever this phase of the series may be, but the same problems that have plagued the past games are still present here; namely, terrible dialog, an absolutely incoherent plot, and a Gummi ship section I still couldn't care less about. However, the game is full of heart (ha! @@@@@@@ , and the combat is very fun. If you're a KH fan, you already know what to expect here.

    I know there are a lot of mixed opinions, but I think this is an overall great game. There's plenty of content and the game seems very well put together. The only thing I don't like is that there is a bit too much dialogue. If you're skeptical of this game I suggest looking up some videos of reviews and/or game play or rent it and form you own opinion. Overall great game.

    I was hoping for better dialogue. I really hate the dialogue and the worlds seem too simple/short. This game is kind of painful to play for more than 1-2 hours at a time but I'm a 27 year old who got this game purely for nostalgia and I should have known better. If I was 13 again this might deserve 4 stars. However since I'm guessing a lot of people looking up this game are in my demographic?I have to fairly represent the enjoyment this game has given me so far.

    I find myself not caring that much until a character I know shows up. The dialogue is terrible. The game play is fun. All in all, a mixed bag. Not worth $60

    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!

    An amazing KH game, but still has its flaws

    Preface: I'ven't 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'ven't played the previous ones it'll still be fun, you just won't know what is happening in the story.

    A Playable Story, for better or worse.

    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.
