    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 is a great game. Sure I had my issues with it, but the overall package is jam packed with things to do, a fun story, and a flashy and deep combat system all wrapped around a fun RPG. Fans of the series have nothing to fear here, and even newcomers can jump in and enjoy their time with it without having too much of a problem following the story, and even if the story is not your thing, the combat will keep action fans and RPG players entertained throughout. This is the best Kingdom Hearts game to date.

    As a pretext for a trip to the worlds of Disney, it is mesmerizing from start to finish, thanks to an exemplary artistic direction that adapts constantly to the subject. It offers a surprising variety of gameplay and constantly draws the eye, thanks to its dynamic fights. However, the redundancy of the confrontations and its ultra condensed scenario which is lost in uninvited dialogues will sometimes tend to annoy or tire.

    The pulsating heart of the product is in fact also represented by the wanderings of the hero through the brilliant licenses Disney and Pixar, capable of supporting and embellishing a fresco so undoubtedly epic but also imperfect, wounded by the gears of time.

    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.

    The presentation side of the game is absolutely brilliant and without a doubt both the visuals and sound design made the game come alive inThe presentation side of the game is absolutely brilliant and without a doubt both the visuals and sound design made the game come alive in all areas. I loved the story because it always kept me interested and even though it gets a little too mixed up at times the charm always shines bright in the tale. Battling against various enemies always felt fun and the amount of depth within the combat made each move feel very satisfying and enjoyable. In terms of content there is a decent amount for you to get to grips with and the variety the content offers you means it very rarely becomes boring or tedious. They’ve done a wonderful job of making Kingdom Hearts III accessible to fans of the series and newcomers which means more fans will come to the table, and old fans will find nods within. Exploration in the game always feels rewarding and the little touches that have been added make the adventure even more of an immersive experience. While some may like the tutorial messages I found them to be a little annoying due to how many times they popped up. I didn’t think Kingdom Hearts III was ever going to happen let alone on Xbox, but they say good things come to those who wait and without a doubt Kingdom Hearts III is definitely a good thing. In fact from start to finish this game was more amazing than good and without a doubt fans of the series will thoroughly enjoy what this game has to offer and I urge newcomers to try the game as well. From the moment I started the game then the presentation made a whole host of memories come flooding back and when in combat to say I had fun would be a massive understatement. I was pleased to see then that in terms of content the game had a huge amount for me to get to get my hands on and exploring the beautifully designed world always felt rewarding. Another aspect of the game that always felt rewarding was the story which made me laugh and sing along the way and most important of all always kept me interested and excited to see what happened next. In terms of problems for me the game didn’t have any at all and the only frustrating thing was the tutorial messages that kept popping up but looking past this issue wasn’t really much of a problem. At the end of the day then Kingdom Hearts III has took what was so good from the previous games and made them even better and it was definitely worth the wait because I can see this game being in plenty of people’s game of the year lists. This is an absolute must buy for any fan of the series and newcomers alike. Two massive thumbs up! Expand
