    Kingdom Hearts III is the game fans were waiting for. Thanks to its addictive gameplay, a beautiful graphic design and a spectacular soundtrack, the game puts a finishing touch to the Xehanort saga with a plot not suitable for beginners.

    Fans of the series have been waiting for this game for a long time, and Kingdom Hearts III will not disappoint them. Both the new and old worlds are a joy to play through, and you are given the freedom to explore them as and when you want. The story is complicated, there's no denying it, and this is not an easy jumping on point for people new to the series. If you put your time into this game there's an abundance of rewards to get out of it, only tarnished by some minor gameplay issues. Sora's latest adventure is magical.

    So, has the decade long wait for this anticipated sequel lived up to all the hype? It’s hard to say. I did enjoy my 30 hours with it by the time the credits rolled, and can easily go back for another 50+ hours for bonus stuff should I desire in the future. It’s such an odd feeling to finally have some closure and finality to the series I’ve been enjoying for almost two decades, but it’s finally time to say goodbye to this chapter of Kingdom Hearts and await to see what comes next, hopefully with a much shorter wait this time around and a much more concise way of storytelling.

    Kingdom Hearts III manages to answer many of the series pending questions, entertaining us with an immediate and maybe a bit too easy but very funny gameplay and wowing us with awesome graphics. Story and gameplay might have been better paced and we feel something more could have been made on the many series' pending plots, but this definitely is a game every lover of the series needs to play.

    Inconsistent but entertaining, packed with likeable, iconic characters. [Issue#225, p.72]

    There is so much game here in Kingdom Hearts 3, and it’s all coming from the mind of an auteur with far too much power. But if you dare to take that plunge, as much of an investment as it is, there is a great adventure to be had here. So much adventure. Probably too much. After all, this isn’t really Kingdom Hearts 3. It’s more like, seven, or ten, or something.

    The game pitches itself as the finale to a series so many have grown up with, but it hasn’t matured with its audience or video games as a medium.

    Critical mode corrected the difficulty of the game, now it is even more fun and more strategic.

    First of all I wasn't waiting for a sequel for KH 2 as I played it as a kid and I enjoyed it for the game play but the story is kinda complexFirst of all I wasn't waiting for a sequel for KH 2 as I played it as a kid and I enjoyed it for the game play but the story is kinda complex that I don't quite follow how things came to be. I played BBS but other than that was not able to play the other spin off titles. So when starting the game for KH 3 it was not confusing for me at all to follow the story. But it was still quite complex as always.

    Graphics of the game on the other hand is beautiful. I love the tangled world the forestry is so breathtaking. It is really a beautiful game as I proceed with the other worlds.

    Music on the other hand was on par with FF XV which means totally great nothing to complain or criticize about.

    Content on the other hand. well I was surprised why there are no Final fantasy or Square enix characters. This is basically a Disney game from this point on. They did however included the song from frozen and the Jap dub was sync with the animation so it is going the extra mile. It's just that if it's Kingdom hearts at the back of your mind you would know that a Final Fantasy character cameo should appear. There's no replay content also or new game + which is basically like KH 2.

    all in all it is a great game. and as one who didn't wanted a sequel but still got a sequel I'm really happy with this. I recommend this to Kingdom hearts fan.
