I loved it! Honestly, I felt that it is the best of the numbered titles by far. I will agree with some people that the game isn't super challenging (though I haven't attempted critical mode yet), but since I don't really care about a challenge in gameplay that didn't really bother me so much. 

All in all, I felt the game was amazing.

It is a very solid 8 out of 10.

It's the best Osaka combat, but it's not as good as KH2. Credit where credit is due though, I've recently been playing KH2, and I found myself on multiple occasions dearly missing Attraction Flow, Flowmotion, Keyblade Transformations, and the ability to take photos. KH3 has great emotional moments, but the pacing is terrible, with really the only "important" things happening at the very beginning and the very end.

It's not an incomplete game, it's a typical KH game, and I wish people would realize this.

Probably somewhere between 7.5-8, with DLC potentially confirming an 8 overall.

Combat pleasantly surprised me, and characters are good. Only things that knocked the score down are lack of content (may be fixed soon), original worlds being lacklustre and some story issues.

I thought that this game had the best visuals (the cutscenes made me feel like I was watching a movie), the best world design for the Disney worlds (except for the 100 Acre Wood), and the best music (the original pieces composed for the cutscenes were the icing on the cake for me).  Even though I still think that the gameplay of Kingdom Hearts II was the best overall, the gameplay of Kingdom Hearts III was fun, and it provided you with more options than ever before.  In addition, the Gummi Ship was the best it has ever been.

While the cutscenes were better than ever before, sometimes they dragged on for too long.  While most of the Disney worlds were great, the 100 Acre Wood and the original worlds left me wanting more.  Also, while it was great having so many different gameplay options, not all of the gameplay options were great.  However, those are just minor complaints.  My only big complaint was with the story.  It felt poorly paced, it didn't seem like any of the original characters other than Sora got the attention they should have gotten (which could be considered part of the pacing issue), and the foreshadowing for future games made Kingdom Hearts III feel less like a finale and more like just another chapter in an even bigger story.  However, while Kingdom Hearts III did not have the best story, it did have the best moments in the entire series, so much so that I can't imagine how future Kingdom Hearts games will top those moments.

Overall, I felt that there were more positives than negatives, and the negatives that were there weren't enough to make me not enjoy the game.  We will have to see if future DLC makes me change my score, but as of right now, I give Kingdom Hearts III an 8/10.

I'm waiting for the DLC for my final score. Right now it would probably be a 7.5 out of 10. I think. I enjoyed the game, I had a lot of fun. It wasn't perfect and there are some serious story pacing issues. I hope they are able to fix that going forward. But like the post above me said, some of the best moments were in this game. Moments that made me tear up. And while I didn't get everything I wanted, I got just enough to keep me satisfied with the game I played. Looking forward to the story DLC stuff that will add even more.

Also while non canon I also want to count the KH3 manga when it's finished too :P

I was disappointed, I would gladly given this game a ten out of ten, if only it had more of these things:

Sora being more mature, focused and stoic and less comical and childish. (He was really getting on my nerves)

The game being a lot more darker than what it already was, meaning a lot less comedy.

Some more mature elements like blood and profanity, even if it would seem out of the question in a Disney game.

More scenes focusing on the villains, especially Master Xehanort and the opportunity to see more of his backstory.

Having Riku, Kairi, ad infinitum being playable.

No lazy recreations of scenes from Disney films.

The official English translations of some lines being less cringeworthy.

Need I go on?

Second best game in the series after KH2:FM for me. Better than KH, Vanilla KH2, and the portable titles, it's high production value and polish are it's main edge against most of the series.

If I were to give the game a proper rating: 4/5, same rating I'd give to most games in the series.

I would probably rate the game 7 out of 10.

I certainly didn't hate it, and it was fun to play, but it was definitely not my favorite KH game, and not in my top favorite games of all time, either.

  • Gameplay: fun, interesting, and the worlds were more expansive than before with more to do.  I honestly loved the addition of Lucky Emblems, because I felt that it rewarded exploration and gave an incentive to truly study and appreciate each world.  I really enjoyed the combat system as well, though the attractions were very much overkill in my opinion.
  • Story: was poor, in my opinion, and this is chiefly why I am giving KH3 such a low rating.  There was so much potential for so many plots and characters and I feel that they failed in many areas.  My main qualms are Kairi falling into the damsel in distress cliche AGAIN, time travel, alternate realities, and Xehanort suddenly becoming the victim.  I felt that much of the reunions between characters was also weak and rushed.  Overall, there was nothing memorable about KH3's plot for me, and I felt that they undid some of the strong writing that existed in the earlier games.
  • Graphics: Gorgeous.  I loved the visuals of each world, and the cutscenes were just amazing.  Definitely have no complaints here.

In sum, it was really the story that disappointed me.  I wasn't expecting anything amazing, but I feel that, despite KH3 being in development for so many years, the game was still rushed and it stood out.

In that case, I don’t think you truly understand Kingdom Hearts after all. I’m all up for Sora being mature, but not the levels of NNNHHH SO HARDCORE “mature”.

 

As for the topic, I give it 8.6/10.
