“KINGDOM HEARTS III tells the story of the power of friendship as Sora and his friends embark on a perilous adventure. Set in a vast array of Disney and Pixar worlds, KINGDOM HEARTS follows the journey of Sora, a young boy and unknowing heir to a spectacular power. Sora is joined by Donald Duck and Goofy to stop an evil force known as the Heartless from invading and overtaking the universe.” https://www.kingdomhearts.com/home/us/[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]I have to admit, this is my first time playing anything like Disney’s Kingdom Hearts, so I am not writing this as a long time fan of this genre, but more as a new gamer that they have won over. I don’t often fall in love with games that have a story to them, as most of my favorite games are more akin to ‘arcade’ style. I am a huge fan of Spryo, Super Mario, Yoshi Yarn World, Rock Band, and Beat Saber, but it’s hard for me to not get frustrated by games that suck you into watching almost a movie and playing at the same time. But, Kingdom Hearts has changed a lot of that for me. The graphics are incredible, the story is deep and profound, the movement is easy to follow and it’s not overly hard to play. Being slightly less reactive in my old age to controller movements (especially when it requires multiple key sequences) I appreciate that you don’t need that to play. The special moves are done with little effort and I have to say, some of them are really spectacular to watch. I cannot express how much fun it is to play, it’s engaging and has an intricate woven storyline that allows you to change how you interact in the game. The Disney sprinkles are abundant as you get to run around with some of your favorites that can kick some serious butt.
I highly recommend this game if you’re a fan of action, fantasy games. It is reminiscent of final fantasy but adds a touch of Disney just about everywhere it can. The only negative, and it was hard for me to find one, is that some of the dialogue is very weirdly worded, and that could be a detractor if you are someone that picks up on strange wordings or sentence structure, but it does not detract from the gameplay.
