Please bear in mind that I obviously haven't finished the game, and I'm only writing to give potential buyers a vague idea of what to expect - I hope to update this review upon my completion of the game.
The basic principle is the same as in Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 - travelling between different worlds and unlocking key holes. Sora and Riku are taking a test to become keyblade masters, and must unlock the keyholes for 'sleeping worlds' in order to pass.
On the whole, the graphics are great. The opening video - as usual - is fantastic, and the 3D works well. The in-game graphics are about the same as those in Kingdom Hearts 2, but a little more pixellated because, obviously, it's on a smaller screen. I tend to find that there is some slight ghosting with the 3D while I'm playing, but nothing really off-putting and it isn't constant.
The characters look detailed and expressive.
The game makes use of all the buttons on the 3DS. I found it a little tricky to remember all the different buttons, but I think I've got them nailed now.
Fighting has been improved - the MP bar has been removed and, instead, each power has to 're-load' before it can be used again. This means you don't have to repeatedly use Ether in order to use magic attacks or cure yourself, so I like this change.
Also, you are able to jump onto walls or spin around lampposts for better fighting combos or just for effect. It's a fairly easy technique to use, and it looks very cool.Read more ›
This outing is by far the strongest entry in many years and utilises the technology of the 3ds well. The graphics are superb, vibrant and Clear. The Storyline is sometimes drawn out and borderline convoluted but does the job. The gameplay i also solid with the main mechanic being the new 'Drop' guage swapping between Sora And Riku. This guage counts down and enters 'bonus mode' before forcing you to swap to the other character. using Items delays the gauge dropping and swapping. This system does seem redundent when it drops you during a boss fight as you can instantly swap straight back but the boss regains all it's health back so keeping an eye on the meter is key. Cameo's from the cast of Square-enix's 'The World Ends With You' was also very welcome.
It's one of the finest 3DS games on the market and comes highly recommended
The stand-out factors are the gameplay, the visuals and the audio. The gameplay is like any other 3D KH game, being a very solid action RPG, but it introduces a few changes here and there to keep things interesting. The main one is Flowmotion, a new type of movement mechanic that allows both Sora and Riku to both scale large distances easily as well as perform some quite stupendous acrobatics. The areas in each world have been designed to work with this, so you can easily catapult yourself around levels whilst not feeling like you're breaking the game. Dream Eater Spirits replace Donald and Goofy as your team members, and are probably best described as Pokemon but if they were made by Tetsuya Nomura. There's a lot you can do with them, but you're gonna want them mainly for ability unlocks.
There's little to say about visuals and audio, but for very good reason; they're both very good indeed, with cutscenes looking especially nice in 3D. Gameplay suffers some framerate issues with 3D on, but with it off it's otherwise fine, with areas and characters alike looking visually pleasing overall. Audio is taken care of by Yoko Shimomura and company, and is great as always, though I feel it was a missed opportunity to not have Daft Punk help out with the TRON: Legacy world music.
However, there's a few things you'll want to know. There's a lot of talk about the Drop system in the game, and not all of it is good. Basically, you're on a time limit whenever you play as either of the main characters, and when your time runs out, that character falls asleep and you automatically switch to the other.Read more ›
Let me explain why.....
When you switch the game on you're greeted by the sublime intro video to this game featuring mickey, Donald, sora and other favourite characters, it makes great use of the systems 3d and the soundtrack that accompanies is beautiful and catchy( I find myself humming it now! Lol).
I've seen the PS2 versions of KH and I personally think that cut-scenes and graphics are slightly better rendered here on the 3DS and the 3D adds just the right amount of depth in this game especially when playing (spoiler alert) the dive game. Where controls are concerned they are easy to use especially in combat, and the camera can be best controlled I Find using the circle pad pro however that is just my preference.
The fun new addition of a pokemon/nintendogs feature where you can build dream eaters that can help you in combat is surprisingly addictive, as a nearly 30 year old guy I find it strange to admit I like it. Without giving any spoilers away for anyone fans or not, this game is just wonderful, it's fun, well paced gameplay makes it easily the finest on the system to date likewise with the graphics.
