details

A few off the top of my head early on

spoiler (click to show/hide)
-thereís a title card for KH 2.9 before you hit 3
-thereís a total troll CG trailer parody of Versus
-and little stuff like the game starts with Olympus again, which is a running joke since itís in every damn KH game but then they mix it up by being a new area and not just the coliseum

I remember a lot of other little in-jokes along the way. The team is very self-aware of all the KH trolls and has no problem poking fun at themselves. Itís great.

Also the fact the game opens with up-ressed PSP footage tells me that the team had free reign to do whatever they want without SE higher ups interefering. Itís kinda like the anti-mainstream newcomer friendly game in a lot of ways.

that fake Versus XIII I got super hyped over Noctis maybe being a Final Fantasy rep for this game. As far as I know they haven't announced any, and I haven't seen any, but that was a great troll.

The 2.9 thing actually produced an audible laugh too :lol

I'm actually surprised that they managed to make the plot a lot more (relatively) understandable.

They try explaining the dumb retcons, but the majority of the game is very straightforward and they walk you through story scenes.

I don't want open world. I want the return to exploration focused worlds as seen in KH1. Learning to fly was a game changer in that. Being teased by chests you couldn't reach and needing a secret, higher ability to get it. Flying through Hollow Bastion. The level design was fantastic.

So I saw Era's all on how the game is way too easy and it's something I've been thinking a bit on normal difficulty but for different reasons. I don't have an issue with how hard enemies hit you, I'm in flashing red HP a lot and I died for the first time last night and it sucked because there's no checkpoints and you just reload your last save and lose everything you gained since then (I lost a level, some collectibles). Fwiw, I am running a glass cannon build focused on attack and I hardly ever heal so yeah.

But enemies die too fast for sure. Sometimes I never get to build up and use my coolest moves because the crowd is cleared too fast before I can. Ride moves are incredibly OP, but they're fine and fun and you can skip them if you don't want to use them. I'm generally not using the ride moves outside once in a while because I actually want to fight the enemies and not screen clear them quickly.

Personally, I think the only balancing the game needs on normal is standard enemies get an HP boost and adjust the cooldown time for triangle attacks like rides and team attacks and 2nd forms is longer so they don't pop as often. Bosses are fine, they have a ton of HP already.

Well the thing is you can pretty much air dash, wall run everywhere from the start so there's less specific platforming, but the levels are a decent size with hidden nooks and are fun to explore around and find treasures. It's not a hallway game.

Confession: I'm a closet KH tard. I've waned with the series over the years, but I'm very excited about this game. Real life is more important rn.

Anyways, is there music as good as this in KHIII for you yet??

I like the music so far, mostly just remixes of the movie themes which is par for course. One thing is that Shimomura isn't solo-ing this ost. Sekito and Ishimoto are on it too.

*edit* actually looking at the staff history, it looks like BBS was already Shimomura + Ishimoto so they're just adding Sekito into the mix.

KH1 has quirks and kinks like a wonky camera but the game is great imo.

I dunno, it's a LOT of back tracking through painfully small rooms (which I get they wanted a lot of areas, but cmon), some awful floaty jumping, and cringe tastic voice acting. Plus some Disney music on weird loops that make you want to break things. The gummi ship customization controls are incomprehensibly bad, and all the other systems just feel shallow.

Also it has far too many mini games.

The jumping mechanics and camera is still wonky af in this one, but you just gotta appreciate how much this team doesn't give two fucks about modern character animation standards, ie smooth and responsive, but restrictive.

Yeah, it can get janky but this really feels like a PS2 game.

I donít have a problem with any of this and the rooms arenít that small to me. Only real bad thing about it is gummi ship (which I still liked) and occasionally the camera.

Ability/Magic melding was the BEST. It's legit the only thing that KH3 is missing. Lets you make all kinds of game breaking abilities/magic early on.

Like the only memorable things from Dream Drop Distance are the doggies and flow motion and KH3 keeps both of those.

I hope the success of this game convinces Square to just make some damn ps2 style games with modern graphics, because hey it works. I mean DQ11 was sorta like that too.

Imagine what an FF game that just played like 7-12 with super nice visuals would be like. Donít need to reinvent the wheel, ps1/2 games worked.

This game is making me want to play FF15 tho finally with all its FF references. Maybe Iíll play that next.

I'm not really seeing much depth or variety with combat, encounters, or what you actually do moment to moment. Cutscene, mob of generic enemies show up, spam magic that's an elemental counter to enemies, hit the 80 button prompts that show up, mash attack to get those prompts back, and repeat.

Also, the number of cutscenes that take you out of gameplay, only to show you an enemy you're going to fighting 15 seconds later....it's quite ridiculous.
Yeah, with the amount of stuff the game pushes at you I can't say depth would be the right word. Or at least as far as regular gameplay goes.

I guess I was trying to get at the mechanics having the potential for depth (parries/launchers/keyblade switching/flowmotion/focus/elementals/meals) but in reality the game is a lot more of a spectacle than I'd like.

Still really, really fun though.

This is all very true. There's a lot of individual mechanics, with how encounters were planned and designed tho, it doesn't feel like there's intent or practicality for them.

Also, I find the world design to be really fucking weird. Going back to Olympus after finishing Twilight Town, and there barely being any enemy encounters, no NPCs to talk to, minigames are spread out in really peculiar places. With the size and vast emptiness of these worlds, I forget Im in a Disney location.  :maf

The spectacle during combat is fun, combat in general is fun, but I get a really heavy feeling that this could've been a 12-16 hour linear action game. In general too, and this isn't a flaw, this feels like a game that would be great for a kid's first RPG.

A few worlds in now and maaaan, I really like this game. Nothing is too deep but there's just enough depth, exploration & everything is varied. The game constantly throws new mini-games and moves and spells and stuff at you (even with the gummi ship stuff) that it's always fun. The collectible hunt is pretty enjoyable too with the hidden mickeys and chests.

Like for instance
4th world in full spoilers
spoiler (click to show/hide)
I thought the Tangled world was just alright with generic rpg forest/swamp that all looks the same map, but then you get to the city and OH CRAP HD TOWNS ARE NOT HARD THIS LOOKS AMAZING. And then the dancing mini-game which was greaaaaat and then the final boss fight was pretty fun (knocking monster off the tower -> dive bomb attacking them is satisfying). So in the end it was a pretty enjoyable world. Plus they nailed the character models & animation.

Oh yeah and then the keyblade you get from tangled world lets you make fucking clones to whoop ass on an enemy from all directions. Good stuff.

If the game keeps it up, might be up there with Bloodborne as my fav AAA game this gen.

Getting near done. Been in media blackout the entire time and sorta expected there to be more Disney worlds than we got. I mean I get from a dev/budget perspective the worlds are way bigger than in past games and for the most part a lot better plus they look amazing, but still, so many properties not included  :'(

Still really happy with everything in it except

Thought the Monsters Inc. world was disappointing from my memories of that movie. Just a zzz factory run with like no story. Liked every other Disney world much better.

And it's only February but definitely GoTY contender for me. Love how much variety there is in the gameplay and the graphics are insane. I also like how a lot of stuff is like simple versions of gameplay from other games like

AC4 Black Flag and Vanquish

Frozen world was boring as fuck.

And of course they had to throw in two songs. My daughter even thought that was weird. "Why didn't Tangled get songs, that's a better movie Dad."

I liked it, but then I liked simple SSX, songs, snowball stuff, puzzles, snow effects. Went on a bit long (felt like the longest world at like 5 hours) but had fun.

San Fransokyo gave off some strong FFvXIII vibes, particularly those old screenshots we saw of battles occurring in "Shibuya."

Think I'm approaching the end game. Got all the Lucky Emblems and have managed to avoid spoilers concerning the secret ending, so that should be fun.

I just cannot get into this game.  The controls, battle system, and story/dialogue all feel worse than KH2

Finished this.

You know, yeah the end stuff is very rushed and underdeveloped and some nonsense, but for actually being able to take like 10 games worth of subplots and characters and wrap it all up, it's impressive. Glad it wasn't an MGS4-style trainwreck conclusion to the series.

Now that said, some of those final boss fights were grade A bullshit. SO MANY BOSS FIGHTS. I feel like the KH combat is totally great and fun for AoE crowd control during levels but 1 on 1 fights with enemies teleporting around and locking you in stun and piling on you is just ughhhhh. If I had died (and there were some damn close calls) in the last 2 fights I was ready to just youtube the ending to not deal with those fights again.

Overall Disney worlds were great, wish there were about 3-4 more.

Great game. Some really good highs, amazing animations (I love the frozen keyblade roller skate animations), big fun worlds, actual story conclusion.

Cons are the music is definitely a huge step down from the old games (whenever they play the KH1 opening music or KH2 Roxas theme or the BBS theme it's like night and day between the current stuff), could use a coliseum with cameo fights, could have less bullshit bosses/enemies, could have a few more worlds and have developed the original plot stuff more between them.

Also I was thinking that entire endgame that if someone was jumping into KH3 as their first KH, they may as well just take the disc out and shelve it after the last disney world. That endgame ain't gonna make a lick of sense for kids new to the series  :lol
