Kingdom Hearts 3 Falls Flat

Kingdom Hearts 3 Falls Flat

Kingdom Hearts 3 is a game that was 13 years in the making that sadly falls flat on its face.

The game takes place almost immediately after one of the many games that no one actually played. It follows Sora, Donald, and Goofy as they help Sora discover the ‘Power of Waking’ that he apparently knew how to do before, but for story purposes somehow forgot he had.

The story is a complete garbled mess, and if you have not played every single game on the roster you will have no idea what’s going on. That being said the gameplay is actually very fun. The combat is the most fluid it’s been in years and it’s very satisfying to slay countless baddies as they appear before you. Until you’re done with combat and then have to sit through
30 minutes of cutscenes.

On the positive side, it is very refreshing though seeing beloved Disney characters and exploring the beautifully crafted worlds from movies like Tangled and Frozen.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is a game that is beautiful on the surface but deep down is very lackluster. Sadly, the gameplay doesn’t make up for how confusing the story is. Lifelong fans of the series will be happy to know that everything gets tied up nicely at the end.
