Is this game actually worth it??

- You don't really get any real character development or story progression until you complete the last Disney world.

 

This is actually the only valid thing you posted about the negatives IMHO. But to each his own.

- The game is being widely considered 'easy' because of how easy it is to abuse the free abilities which all give you invincibility frames and clear out most of the enemies.. (at no mp cost or risk)

 

Maybe this too but that's easily fixed by playing on proud. Standard and Easy are for casual fans though SE should have made that clearer.

It's literally just the cost of 2.8 that's really putting me off. I've always felt like the remasters are a bit of a joke price wise 

 they are a joke. took me up until now and even luck with Amazon to get it for 25.99 CDN$. 

perhaps try Amazon.

 

as for whether KH3 is worth it, sure. but I dont think it does or could live up to the hype. The story doesnt even ramp up until you complete all the worlds except the last. it's just bits peppered in here and there...

The real story begins after the disney worlds imho. Every question I had in the last 12 years got an answer.

 

I think kh3 is awesome. If you followed the storyline of the past, you'll love the long cutscenes. Kh isnt about the gameplay - really, kh was always easy af - on vet mode too, if you comepare it with other jrpgs.

 

If you didnt play the game for the story, you wont be amused I think. 

Oh - and frozen is a very short part. Most of the worlds are bigger - especially carribean, toybox and tangled.

 

Oh - and i'm glad that i dont have to visit agrabah a 3rd time :')

Magic isn't tied to levels, so you'd still get cure/cura/curaga. I don't think you'd ever get withstand combo or second chance though, so it should still be a challenge.

Whoops, my mistake. Somehow I didn't notice that the story progress rewards (like cure) don't come with a level increase.

There was not an overfocus on Frozen. the world is no longer than any other, it just sucks as a world and shouldn't exist since it added nothing. Even the KH main story didn't really need it's addition. Pirates in comparison makes Frozen look like total filler.

Hopefully I won't find it a total bore and can at least enjoy the charm of it. As for the Frozen world not existing, there was no reality where the highest-grossing animated movie ever wouldn't get a world in KH3.

Then they should’ve put effort into it, and they’re a good few years too late. May as well have Avatar world. Neither had actual longevity

I'm watching my partner play it at the moment, I noticed when the title comes up in the opening gameplay it states 'Kingdom Hearts 2.9' - does this get explained later on? I've never been a huge fan of the decimal system the franchise uses but this one was confusing as it came across as this still not being the third game.

Certainly the Frozen world should have had lots of effort put into it, maybe more than any of the other Disney worlds considering the stakes.

 

But I'm not sure what you're saying about it being too late? Almost all the Disney worlds in the KH series have come years after the movies they're based on, and Frozen has never "lost relevance" unlike Avatar. Just go to any store with toys and you'll see Frozen stuff everywhere. Disney made a theatrical short and a longer mini-movie (~20 minutes) in the time between 2013 and now. The theatrical sequel is coming out this fall. Kids are still singing Let it Go. When exactly would be a better time to capitalize on the Frozen franchise, in your opinion? 😕

 

Yes, I realize the irony with Avatar coming back in the next few years as multiple sequels (somebody forgot to tell James Cameron that the first movie succeeded only as an unique-at-the-time CGI spectacle). But that's very different from the Frozen franchise, with a sequel that is guaranteed to sell more toys and costumes, and be another box office smash. It probably won't be as successful as the first movie, but every kid in most of the world is going to drag their parents to see it.

 

Time will tell how much staying power Frozen has (most people have forgotten Princess and the Frog, even though it's a great movie), but right now it's still very much riding high.

Cool, that's good to hear about story resolution.

 

I liked the Agrabah worlds, but I agree that they didn't need to come back again. I would certainly enjoy a visit to the forgotten Disney movies though - there's a lot of untapped potential there.

A lot of you guys dislike Arendelle but I quite liked it, I did think it was stupid how you don't really see the bad guy until the end of the level but I liked it, I especially loved the boss fight. The weakest level is Monstropolis. My own opinion.

Arendelle was fine. But imo the ice labyrinth was too long and kinda annoying. The bossfights were great and I liked the quest with Olaf. 

 

But compared to the amazing carribean or the Kingdom of Corona, Arendelle was boring :D

I’ve heard people saying it’s too easy, the gummi missions are just as ridiculous as they’ve always been, the cutscenes are painfully long (even for a kingdom hearts game) and there’s an overfocus on frozen. Also, is there really no square enix characters in this game?!


So a few things on this.  IMO, Frozen wasn't that much of the game.  Truth be told I thought it was longer than most worlds, but honestly, I spent the longest in Toy Story.  So it's likely that you'll have a world that takes up much more of your time.  I also didn't think it was particularly memorable or interesting.  There's a section early on actually I outright didn't like and I'd call one of the games weakest moments.

The gummi ship is...ok I guess.  I think it controls rather poorly, and while exploring can be rather interesting, it's also annoying how they set up the fights (though I was able to change the settings and at least make the ship easier during combat).

I disagree with the cutscenes being too long, I actually don't think they're too bad, but as someone else mentioned, they are longer earlier on (I'm almost at the end so I could be wrong).

As for being easier, I'm not sure that's true across the board for me, but I will say everything seems a lot bigger than it is.  A good example is how many of the bosses have an absurd amount of life bars early on.  So while the bosses seem extremely buff, all of your moves due a crazy amount of damage (playing on standard, mind you).  I think the point is to make you feel overpowered, but it could feel too easy.

Overall I think it's worth the wait, but I'd also recommend a bit of caution with your expectations.  Reason being is that each world, as I'm sure you know, has it's own gimmick.  It's kind of like an anthology film, some parts are going to be weaker than others.  Two worlds in particular were, I thought, really frustrating, while I thoroughly enjoyed two others, and the rest were kind of in the middle.  It's definitely not a bad game, and I'd highly recommend playing it whenever you get the chance.

 ^^ Maybe I am not the best Person to talk about this.
Kingdom Hearts is my favourite game series of all time.
I bought a Gameboy Advance in the past, only for Chain of Memories.

I bought a Nintendo DS in the past, only for 358/2 days and Recoded.
I bought a Nintendo 3DS in the past, only for DDD.
I bought a PSP in the past, only for Birth by sleep ^^

haha that's understandable then :P

only KH games I yet to play is DDD n 2.8 which I will, and Chain of Memories on 1.5 which i think the card gameplay would be weird.

I have no idea whatsover about these games and what they entail.  Seeing the number of players this week and that it has toppled the glorious Resident Evil 2 I'm guessing it must be good.

 

Can anyone please give me a little basic rundown of just what these games are exactly I'm curious, fighting? RPG?

RPG/Adventure and I guess you could consider it hack n slash.

 

You have a menu on the left side with commands. 

Attack

Magic

Item

(this slot tends to switch with the games but it's usually a special maneuver)

 

:cross: is what you press when you're on the attack command and it'll just go through the combo which you can extend with abilities or have special attacks that you unlock through the abilities. Magic I'm guessing is rarely used since you have a shortcut menu with :l1: where you can have 4 magic commands, although you can shortcut an item in there too.

 

Gameplay vids would be a better way to determine if you'd like it. It's not turn based, it's quite free for all really lol. On the higher difficulties you're not just going to mash the :cross: button despite what a lot of people state. You'll need to dodge, block, and even get some distance to heal if you don't have certain abilities. (these people tend to think dodging a million times to get 1 hit in is the way like the Souls series.)

 

EDIT:

The story is...kinda hard to get a handle on if you don't play all the games. You can't play the 3 main titles and understand it.

Its an JRPG.

 

80% of the game is based on disney worlds.

20% of the game is based on the own kingsom hearts universe.

 

Real time combat, easy gameplay, many cutscenes, very deep story about friendship.

 

If you skip cutscenes, most of the kh games only have about 10-12 hours of gameplay.

 

With the cutscenes its a masterpiece with about 40 hours of playtime.

 

If you like disney and final fantasy, you will find your new favourite game.

@Avatar_Of_Battle @Belphega2208 Thank you kindly for your feedback its much appreciated.  I've never really got into the final fantasy games, i don't know what it is they just didn't do alot for me.  And as for Disney I'm not and never have been that much of a fan really other than alice in wonderland for its crazy trippiness.  I think its safe to say I will proabaly never go out of my way to buy them but I'll be sure to have a little try at some point.  👍

After finishing it this morning it's hard to overstate how much of a disappointment the finale is. The mob fights are shit easy and the final battle itself doesn't hold a candle to previous games. As a fan of the series I don't feel any drive to Platinum this. The Toy Story and Pirates worlds are alright, though.

Personally can't agree more, I just wanted to add though that Kingdom Hearts 2 honestly did everything better, from the tactical gameplay, fairness, stroy progression and character arcs, the only reasoning behind it that I can rationally come to is they're catering to a newer generation (or at least a generation that doesn't know too much about the story).

I know it's the wrong topic for this but there's so many interesting things they could have done with this game, we could have actually had the Realm of Darkness as a playable world - similar to 0.2, have half way through the story we could have visited Kairi and Axel while they were training and had that as a playable world, and have something go wrong so that players became invested in the story and wanted to help (kind of like in KH2 where Axel kidnapped Kairi and there was that whole speech in Twilight Town), they could have kidnapped Yensid towards the end, we could have had closure to Jack Sparrow and him having a 'Keyblade one day' banter (for it being the ONLY 'Disney' world we revisit from past entries)
Edit: I forgot about Olympus.

I mean we didn't even visit Radiant Garden or Disney Castle despite receiving multiple calls from both between worlds, Twilight Towns clock tower, Castle Oblivion was only in cutscene (and NO ONE remembers this locations from CoM?? or at least FELT like they had been here before? they didn't even care to elaborate why Organization 13 was there in the first place - to locate Ventus on Xemnas's orders) we didn't actually go into the Chamber of Repose or the Chamber of Waking (which I was actually pretty disappointed about - Aqua just magically gets her armour back).

I could go on and on and the worst part is that it feels like Square is laughing at us with these Attraction Flow rides, I wish I could just turn them off in the settings it really diminishes the gameplay when there's a button to insta-win most normal battle encounters..

(and yeah - I did roll my eyes and close the game after I got knocked down the mountain a second time in Arendelle)

Maybe I should have made a new topic, or maybe someone else should, I don't want to be the source of hate for KH, I love the game - and the series, it just feels so bad to clearly see it get neglected, I would have waited an extra few years to have the perfect send off, but what we got felt so rushed and unfulfilling.

PS. Reflect is gone, anyone notice that?  no one cares? okay cool.

Um, Proud Mode would have make them tougher. If you wanted a challenge, play it on Proud Mode. I don't get why some people say this game is easy, I think they didn't play this game on Proud Mode.

just wanna say i picked up 2.8 and i know it's a remake of a 3ds but dream drop distance is the most disappointing thing i have EVER had to look at on a ps4. the sound isn't a high quality (it is REALLY muffly when fighting) the voice acting is dull as anything and the fighting is ridiculously. so if that's what i've got to look forward to in kh3 i'm really not going to bother haha
