    The end of an epic saga

    From it's humble beginning way back in 2002 on the PlayStation 2, the long-awaited numbered-sequel does no disappoint, if you're a fan. Kingdom Hearts 3 marks the end of the "Dark Seeker Saga", not the end of the series itself, and this game makes it clear with numerous hints towards more adventures for Sora, his friends, and the Disney brand. As such, newcomers will undoubtedly find themselves overwhelmed by the plot, even with the handy inclusion of an in-game archive that abridges much of the story for quick digest and refreshment on the story. Combat is a refined blend of many elements seen in both the original PS2 games, and the many sequels/prequels released after them. Keyblades now can be upgraded, and all offer their own skills for offense, defense, and magical destruction as you battle the hordes of Heartless, Nobodies, and Unversed. The music is by some of the best seen in the series thus far, with catchy tunes that capture those seen in the films recreated, and some that directly recreate memorable melodies like Toy Story's "You've got a friend in me", the game is both an audio and visual joy from start to finish.

    An Epic Finale. Maybe not for those just starting.

    As a KH fan, this is one of the greats. It ties most of the loose ends left behind over the past 17 years of build-up. As a series with so many parts I find its conclusion on par with The Deathly Hallows and Infinity War when needing to go so much right. The game runs well and the Disney worlds are fully realized and larger and more complex than any other entry in the series. Combat is hack and slash RPG action which plays well but at this point needs some new vision as the series continues in the future. HOWEVER... If you are new to this series you'll have fun but really will miss out on what makes this storytelling so great. Its long-winded, complex, confusing and sometimes downright misleading which can be a frustration to many. If you want to get on the train now do yourself a favor and watch some youtube recaps which cover years of this series story the most efficiently. I would recommend playing at least KH1, KH2, Birth by Sleep and Dream Drop Distance to get the bigger beats out of the story if you had to pick some to play.

    ...and a bunch of other stuff like friendship, love, hitting bad guys with a sword-sized key happened. Stop with this nonsense that "if you didn't play the earlier games you cant play this one" junk folks are saying. This game has a section from the main menu where you can watch a summary set of videos explaining the entire story so far. Done. Ignore anybody trying to tell you this game is hard to jump in to if you didn't play previous games. Obviously this is the best looking and best playing Kingdom Hearts. Its a fun story just for the environments and characters even if you do have no clue whats going on. That's why map objectives exist. More people than you think watch movies and video games and have no idea what they are doing the entire time. It's ok. Everybody enjoys stuff differently. If you played the old ones, buy this. If you are new and like Disney stuffs, buy this. If you like video games and are not hard locked to ultra violent bloody content, buy this.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 ..

    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.

    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.
