    Flashy combat, stilted story telling

    First off, I haven't played any of the kingdom hearts games up until this point, so consider that for my review. This game had the hype. My friends who were big kingdom heart fans had been talking fervently about this game for a year. Every month and week leading up to release I would get some breathless update on how this game is gonna be the best thing since sliced bread... So I bought the game on release. The reviews were good. And I had done my homework into the story line (there are many synopses online). But wow was I disappointed. The combat by itself is largely boring to actually do. You hit the same button repeatedly with the same combo, over and over and over and over again. Yes, the developers do spice up stuff by having these amusement ride combos cash-ins, and that's cool. But having just come from God of War, the combat mechanics in this game are a tier below. So I'm left with just a meh feeling. Writing and story. So everyone knows the writing is... Just weird. I'm not super invested in these characters, but I could see if you're a lifetime fan of the series, the character interactions might have some more weight for you. But as someone with no prior experience, the character interactions were awkward at best and dumbfounding at worst. I don't know if I should blame the translator, or the writer, so I'll blame both. Story is infamously convoluted, and I'll say it rings true here as well. All around, I would not say this game is worth full price of admission. $30 seems like a fair deal if you're just looking for a JRPG and don't have any experience with this game series.

    Overall it's been a fun game so far, looks terrific, battles are just hectic fun! The voice acting is pretty cheesy. The story is all over the place if you didn't play the others you'll have no idea what's going on, even if you watch the re cap. But fans of the other games will love their experience with this. My biggest gripe, is they are just packing wayyyy too many systems into this game. Every time I turn around there's a new mechanic to learn, and I feel like there's more cut scenes than gameplay. At first it was fine, but it's getting worse with the cheesy dialog and voice acting. I'll try to finish the game, again the battle systems are fantastic, but there's soooooooo much story in every cut scene and they just drag on soooooo long

    The first 3 worlds in KH3 are really fun. There's a lot of interaction between the characters and the worlds seem fully fleshed out. After that, things get a bit rushed. In two of the newer worlds (based on recent movies), the game is very linear and only has 3 or 4 characters for you to interact with. Contrastingly, other worlds are fully fleshed out and fun to run around in, but the storyline is based on a movie from over 10 years ago. Obviously, I'm still going to finish it, but I have been having to force myself through certain sections of the game.

    A long wait for 13 years of cut scenes...

    Sigh...That's all I got so far. After 13 long years, this is what we got. It looks beautiful. Dont get me wrong. But, what a huge disappointment. Its nothing but cut scenes. The combat is cool (repetitive), but you have to go through hours of cut scenes before you get to fight anything. It would help if the cut scenes made sense and explained what was going on in the story, but alas, here we are. Pretty much a letdown. As a kid, if this would have came out, i probably would have loved it like i did the first 2. But time has passed and so has my interest

    I know the popularity that surrounds Kingdom Hearts is vast. But I am just not sure I can recommend it to people who have not played the previous games or did not enjoy them Pros: - Interesting and fun combat - Slightly easy - Disney environments are super cool Cons: - Story is not very interesting - Voice acting is abysmal - Certain portions of the game do not look that great - Multiple gametypes that are not polished/refined (bullet hell sequences or platforming)

    If you've played all the handheld games, I'm sure you'll love this. After all, I assume you've become entranced by this series' convoluted mess of a story. I, on the other hand, have not played seriously since kh2. I don't care about the nonsensical story; I just want classic kh gameplay with some new mechanics thrown it. You get that, but so far there's more time devoted to cutscenes than actual gameplay. Long story short, it wasn't worth the wait.

    I'm enjoying the game so far, 4 hours into it. The cut scenes are too long and too frequent for my taste. The game also seems to be aimed at a younger demographic. The graphics are bright and colorful but Pixar did have a hand in this after all. The battles get to be bit tedious as it's mostly just button mashing.

    My issue with this game is it took a long time to come out and it's just not as good as the first two. There are many reasons why to many to name in this review. It's a game to play if you like the universe and with that said you'll probably have a great time.

    Fans of the series will probably have a good time and enjoy this game a lot. The Disney stuff is great, but fro someone new to the series... the gameplay just didn't really do it for me. It seemed like for a 2019 game it was lacking in a lot of areas.

    Got this for my 4 year old son to watch me play as he loves all the characters in the game. Gets repetitive and I hate the unnecessary stuff I have to do at times like take pictures of a Mickey Mouse symbol. Also the cutscenes can be boring and drawn out

    I never played the other Kingdom Hearts games, and maybe that's the problem. I like rpg's like final fantasy and bought into the hype, but it just never clicked for me. too many other games out there to force myself to try and like something, next

    It seems to be one giant recap of the previous games up until the halfway point where you finally start to see how the story all ends. Combat is ok at first but requires you to level up so it's not frustrating

    This game plays well. Pretty easy to pick up and play. I found much of the dialogue to be cringe worthy though. If you're a fan of the series, I'm sure you'll love it. Unfortunately, it wasn't able to keep my interest for too long.

    Well, it was certainly a game. One might think after so many years and all the hype it would be super exciting to write a review, but honestly, the game isn't very special. Arguably the weakest of the main game trilogy.

    If you're a hardcore fan of the series and wish to see how the saga ends then yes its worth the buy but besides that, the combat is alittle repetitive and the difficulty is toned down for first time players.

    This game feels like it could have been released in 2009. Very repetitive, the story is over convoluted and unnecessarily complex. Certainly not a fully streamlined game or story. Disappointing After all these years

    This game took over 10 years to make and it showed. Built after Disney acquired Marvel and Star wars so we got tangled...and big hero 6. Could have been much better. Also the story is all over the place.

    I've played through the first one and it was enjoyable. Haven't played through this one entirely but it seems like fun also. I think what I like the most is the blending of the two world's.

    The long awaited next installment to Kingdom Hearts. It's fine, fun, whatever, but it doesn't seem like it has all of the heart that the first two games had. Still enjoyable but a bit lacking.
