    Cheesy but Unique & Nostalgic

    (Never played the other games before it) This game is so cheesy that as a grown man, I have to turn the volume down and cover my windows to not let my neighbors see me as I fight demon spawn pokemon looking things with the help of Micky & *friends* (the asterisks = flowers). There are a lot of cut scenes, which adds to the individual Disney worlds you'll explore- however I find myself not really caring about the actual Kingdom Hearts "world" (so far). The evil character all have funny confusing odd names w/ silly haircuts, they might as well be called Xerox, Equador, etc. Game is also TOO easy, and some powers are OP. I have to purposely turn off XP gain and use some abilities in their "hardest" difficulty. Due to this, I don't find myself using items or other boosts ever, which would be signficantly more OP. So why the 5 stars you say? Well, despite not caring about the Story's end point, it's the adventure to get there visiting these nostalgic Disney worlds and meeting the characters there. The boss fights are awesome, and the fighting mechanics really add variability depending on your sword key. There are abilities or specials with other characters that are really awesome to do. The animation is really great, and enjoy just how different it is compared to other games. There is quite a lot of content in here, and offer minigames that other people would like. This game might not be for everyone, but I have an open mind to this kinda stuff - and for entertainment - I have been entertained.

    Fantastic addition

    Great game! I have been a fan of the KH series since I first played it when I was 7, this is just one more great addition. The combat has been upped (you can now swap between 3 different keyblades mid fight and each keyblade has a special second form/finisher), the worlds are huge, and the game play is fun/ addictive and easy to get the hang of. Nevertheless, unless you want to be confused, I wouldn't recommend this to newcomers without first beefing up on the old lore or playing the old games; because they reference a lot from the previous games with little context. They've lowered the difficulty since KH 2, (save the very final sections of the game) and unless you go on proud mode its downright easy, but it still is wildly entertaining either way. And to anyone who think the graphics are short of great (okay, I believe you), nah man; this thing is beautiful. Some of the animated sections looked on par if not better than their Disney counterparts and the pirates world was weirdly enjoyable (water combat no longer makes me want to kill myself). So I highly recommend this game if you've played all the others. Also, just a heads up, buy at least one potion/ingredient from every moogle you see. He'll give you a postcard after every first purchase and you need a butt-ton of postcards to get Orichalcum+ (needed for the strongest keyblade).

    Fun gameplay with a complex story

    The gameplay is a lot of fun. The different possible mechanics make for a fun way to play the game multiple ways. Most battles, combat can seem easy on the normal difficult setting, but the game still provides plenty of challenges. The story is interesting and complex, although the dialogue can be a little cheesy at times. The story draws on numerous storylines from all the previous games, which is great. However, if you haven’t played all of them over the last decade and forget the storyline, you feel left out during some cutscenes. It’s easy to figure out what’s going on with context clues, but an in-game way of reviewing the story so far would’ve been a welcome addition. Overall, the game was a lot of fun and a great send off for the franchise.

    Having not played any previous version of Kingdom Hearts, my review is based solely off of this version alone I bought this game for my 11 year old son and he loves it. He beat the entire game in about 2 days of just casual play, so the difficulty seems to be very easy. The graphics are nothing special, i mean they look good, but it is nothing ground breaking as other reviews would lead you to believe. The special effects of the moves being theme rides from Disneyland is really cool, for instance one move is everyone gets in the Tea Cups and you damage the enemies by spinning in to them. Very kid friendly, nice lookingh graphics, worth the money

    Cheesy dialog, but excellent game

    I'm only somewhat familiar with the Kingdom Hearts franchise through briefly playing (but never completing) some of the previous games, but I had been looking forward to this one. It is obvious the game was clearly developed with Japanese as the main language and some of the dialog and character animations reflect this. The intro scene is very awkward with this, but it does improve later. The gameplay is a blast and some scenes look like they are straight out of a Pixar movie. The amount of detail and care put in to some of the locations and characters is very impressive. I'd recommend this game to any RPG fan (the game does include some videos to catch newcomers up with the story).

    So I've been a fan of this series since the first one. I never played any of the additional games on portable so im missing some of the story but its still very interesting. The game play is fun and the gummy ship section is my favorite part honestly. I will say that this game is rather easy. I am currently playing on the proud mode setting, a step above normal, and its still really easy. Aside from that the stories in the individual worlds are really well written and nostalgic for those that remember them as kids. Additionally, random characters like ratatouillie and scrooge make it interesting. THERE ARE SO MANY MINI GAMES! All in all a great game.

    Kingdom Hearts III arrives, and it was well worth the wait! Many KH fans rejoice as Kindom Hearts III has recently been released and it won't disappoint fans of old and new to the series! The story and graphics are all amazing quality and this game in my opinion has surpassed the Final Fantasy series based on their recent disappointing releases. The action turned based RPG works flawlessly and I love the new Magic and Summon abilities as well as wide variety of equipment, items, and weapons to choose and upgrade to personalize your characters! This game is a must add to any RPG fan's collection and a must experience as well!

    I didn't play the former two console releases because I didn't have a console when they were released. Fortunately, this includes the necessary recap videos. The story is still convoluted, which seems to be a common complaint, but it makes up for it in heart and gameplay. I play this on a One X and seeing the visuals in true 4K is absolutely breathtaking. The Tangled material looked just as good as the film release. Absolutely recommend for long-time fans and newcomers just looking for lighter fare.

    I have followed both KH1 and KH2 and was so excited when they decided to make KH3 Xbox compatible. This game definitely follows the same game play as the first two with new worlds and the same fun loving characters. It might be a little confusing if you haven't played the series before, so hopefully they will come out with the first two on Xbox in the future. For those of us who have been able to play the first two, KH3 is a must have for your game collection.

    This is a welcome addition to the series - for newcomers and old players alike. If you played the previous versions of the game, you'll feel right at home. It's a beautiful game with great graphics and music. The mechanics are fluid and fights enjoyable and somewhat varied. There's a lot of variety in the game. There are a lot of cut scenes but so far, they have all been interesting. My family will sit there and watch because it's so much like a movie. Overall, an enjoyable game.

    This game has tons of nostalgia for me, I grew up playing KH1 and 2 and this game does its predecessors justice. With great graphics, tons of new Keyblade abilities and call backs on the old games it’s great. However if you are new to the series and a big Disney fan the game will still captivate you, however I do recommend doing research on what has happened in past games so you don’t feel out of the loop.

    I've been waiting a long time for this game and I am not disappointed so far! I am a big fan of the Kingdom Hearts games but wasn't too fond of playing on the mobile systems. I am only a few hours in but this is exactly what I wanted. It's an easy play with an entertaining story. Of course, if you're looking for more of a challenge it can entertain that as well with it's harder difficulties.

    Greatest RPG/Disney Game Ever

    This game is like picking up a very complicated, very hard to follow Disney movie - where you love the characters, love the design, love the action sequences, love the animation - and can't look away, but yet you love what you are watching. That's what this game is. It's a ton of fun, very memorable music, great gameplay and a joy to play - yet I still don't know what's going on...

    I’ve been waiting for years for the release of this game and the game does not disappoint at all. Very great interactive game for all ages and will definitely keep you glued to the screen for several hours. Looks a lot better if you have an Xbox One X, with the enhancements and all. But you still get great quality on the other Xbox models.

    I haven't played a Kingdom Hearts game in years, but this is exactly how I remember them. This game has brought back a lot of good memories. It has a good storyline, decent controls, and good graphics. My one complaint is that the voice acting is a little sub par, but the quality of the story and gameplay more than make up for it.

    I have been waiting for this game since I beat kingdom hearts 2. This is a fun game to play, especially if you are a Disney fan! My 2-4 year olds love playing with me, it’s only a one player game, but they pick up their controllers and pretend to play with me while watching their favorite Disney characters. It is a great game for anyone!

    Kingdom Hearts III is a great continuation in the Kingdom Hearts story. The gameplay is fantastic and storyline is a lot of fun. My wife has actually been playing longer than I have. She doesn’t want to give back the controller. Which also makes it a great game to just sit back and watch. Great game for the family.

    This is a great game, and definitely worth the wait. It takes you through lots of the Disney worlds and character interactions you came to love in the old games as well as plenty of new ones. Sora and company’s story is nicely explored and expanded upon. Definitely recommend if your a fan of the other games in the franchise.

    Played it on X1X. Great graphics and lots of fun all around. I watched the story so far videos that came with it. I was confused from time to time but I could follow the story pretty well regardless. I didn't care for a couple of the worlds but I felt like Disney junkies would have no complaints. It scratched an itch.

    Some people dont like the long story line that goes with the games. However, in my opinion it's what makes kingdom hearts such a great game. The story line is so in depth and links back to all previous kingdom hearts games. I love the addition of mini games as well as newer Disney film themed worlds like frozen.
