    The developer has refined and perfected the combat. It kept its silliness in tact. It kept in the darker themes and deep moments of self-reflection that we all need every once in awhile. It’s, quite frankly, the best Kingdom Hearts game Square Enix has ever created.

    It's not just a great Kingdom Hearts game, it may very well be a game that gets revisited in December.

    A grand finale that summarizes one of the most legendary waits for a video game sequel - ever, and really does a fine job! Kingdom Hearts III is a complex yet perfectly lite experience story-wise, packed with amazing combat and adorable worlds and characters. It is a game that lives up to the Kingdom Hearts name and is something you should not miss, whether you are a long term fan or new to the franchise.

    There is no doubt that Kingdom Hearts III will make long term fans moved or even cry. As for those new to the franchise, I believe they also can be satisfied because of tons of classic Disney elements and solid combat system, even though they could barely understand the main story.

    Kingdom Hearts III is an amazing yet flawed game made for the most die-hard fans of the series. While newcomers can still enjoy the quick-paced gameplay, the extremely complicated story will surely leave them bewildered. Even if you understand so little of it, prepare to embrace the wacky and bizarre nature of Kingdom Hearts III with an open-mind and it will be a fun ride.

    Newcomers to the series will be baffled by the complexity and bizarre nature of Kingdom Hearts III’s story. Despite this, if you like good combat and want to visit Disney World, you can do far worse than this title.

    Kingdom Hearts III is overflowing with heart, and mostly unconcerned with the head; as such, it’s in dire want of wickedness.

    The game is awesome better than the previous Kingdom of Hearts game. This could be the game of the year. The graphics are awesome too.

    This game has high potential, but for some reason it falls a bit short of that potential. It has beautiful graphics, memorable music, very funThis game has high potential, but for some reason it falls a bit short of that potential. It has beautiful graphics, memorable music, very fun combat base, charming characters and interesting story. Imo, what hinders this game is the narrative burden from previous entries and lack of challenges and rewards relating to the gameplay. Still a great game overall, but with more content and tweakings through updates and DLC I believe this game could be better Expand

    As a fan of KH series this game is a big disappointment

    -The game is too easy even on the hardest difficulty -There are no Final Fantasy
    As a fan of KH series this game is a big disappointment

    -The game is too easy even on the hardest difficulty
    -There are no Final Fantasy characters
    -Only two original worlds (and Twilight town is even smaller than in KH2)
    -Combat is just broken all you have to do is press X to win
    -There are no secret bosses or anything like the coliseum only boring mini games
    -Too many boring mini games that no one is going to play
    -There's nothing to do after you've finished the story

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I preferred this game to never come out

    gameplay unbalanced the worlds are not accurate but the story is the worst thing. The story is as poorly written & stupid as ever. It's such a tangled mess of bloated, unnecessary nonsense now, the writers can't even keep track of their own characters. The usual incoherent gibberish of "darkness, hearts, darkness, friendship" is all there but now it's more repetitive than ever.
    The dialogue is still poorly written. World endings are usually the worst.
    The 'humour' in this game consists of characters laughing like morons at something thats not remotely funny as the camera pans out.
    The story is so phoned in, even the characters start phoning it in.
    Characters go from being total powerhouses to complete drooling potatoes in cutscenes.
    There's one cutscene in the final battle where Sora actually gets knocked unconscious from another character stumbling & falling over on him. I'm not joking. The ending is complete fan service trash & the main villain completely does a 180 on his character in the end and it's laughable and not not believable.
