This thread will assume you have finished Kingdom Hearts 3, thus everything is fair game and I just wanted to get everyone’s thoughts on the game itself, and where it ranks among the main KH titles.

Everything after this will have spoilers, so you are warned.

For me:

I thought the positives of the game was that it was more Kingdom Hearts - the core gameplay is the same, and it’s recognizable from past titles, which given Squeenix’ track record is really all I asked for. The combat is really fluid and the game looks gorgeous.

I will say that’s kind of where the good stops for me though. The story has become so nonsensical it’s beyond ridiculous. Does sora die at the end? Does he use the power of awakening to rescue kairi, who herself died? How many times do people have to die in this game to actually be dead? Don’t even get me started on the time travel aspect...and I thought the handeling of the whole “new organization xiii” was really stupid as well - couldn’t we have left the organization dead from 2? (I suppose that was really DDD fault)

I was disappointed that roxas did not have a bigger role (I thought him, ven, and sora would be the main playable characters, but unfortunately the other two don’t even come into play until basically the ending of the game.

The Disney worlds did not serve a purpose to me - yes they had their own sub plots that sora took part in, but they had nothing to do at all with the overarching story.

I was massively, massively dissappointed that there were NO final fantasy characters in this game. I understand they wanted to focus on the end of the xehanort story, but kingdom hearts was final fantasy / Disney, in that sense this game lost a lot of the Kingdom Hearts charm.

The pacing, as mentioned before is pretty poor, since I really only cared about the end part of the game after you finish the Disney worlds and save aqua; saving aqua, ven, terra, Xion, roxas, and namine should have been more of a lead up instead of all at the end...

Finally as seen elsewhere, the difficulty was not there: the whole game is really easy. (And short!)

I place this currently as my least favorite in the series. 1 is still my favorite and 2 a close second. 3 is pretty far behind IMO. All 3 games are still worth playing.

I guess for taking 13 years to come out, I’m just disappointed in the final product a bit. I mean I thought they had a long time to better handle this.

Anywho: thoughts?

The endless struggle between light and darkness ends. This is the triumph of the entire saga, a story carefully woven from the games of the series, bouncing back and forth in a confused and blurred timeline. There is no rhythm, replayability is unlikely, the characters of the Final Fantasy universe have disappeared, but Kingdom Hearts III is technically superior, aesthetic. There may even be potential to explore in the future, perhaps using DLC, but this is the closure of this saga and its characters deserve.
