I'm about 8 hours in, playing on normal mode. At the Tangled World with Rapunzel.

Initial thoughts:

It really feels like more of the same. It's like... they transferred most of the gameplay/story ideas from 2006, kept those the same, and updated the graphics like crazy.

Crazy amounts of tutorials. So many gameplay ideas thrown in makes it confusing at the start.

They needed a recap of KH2's story at the beginning... no one remembers what happened. That was 13 years ago. Story is really confusing. I was falling asleep when they were playing chess and talking about "Keyblade War"

Sora having a phone, and the obvious instagram loading screens were bad... the game clearly is trying to be "hip".

Intro song and music was not as good as KH1's "Simple and Clean" or KH2's "Sanctuary"

Generally, the game is wait till you can press triangle then you win.

Why isn't Riku & Mickey with the main group?

What is going on in this story.... who is Xemnas, Xenahort, Terra, Aqua...

That fat kid from Twilight Town... lol. Also why didn't Phil from Hercules' world talk?(the goat)

Why are we going to these worlds again? To get Sora's "power" back? He seems damn strong to me....

Game feels really dumb to me, feels like it was made for a 10 year old. Also has a "too many cutscene"(MGS4) problem, right now it's like 70% watching 30% play.

Things I like so far:

Graphics are gooood.

There's one beautiful scene with Lea and Kairi, when they're in the heaven-like area. Kairi is reading off something she hand-wrote and Axel(Lea) is there. That scene, the first half(before you saw Kairi and Axel), was the best scene in the game and one of the better scenes I've seen in video gaming in general.

In the Toy Story World, the part with the fake FF game, the "commercial", was really funny and well-done.

I like Flynn(the guy from the Tangled World)

You'd need a recap of almost the entire series, and those exist on Youtube. They're all like 45 minutes long.

Yea you're right about that. I was trying to avoid watching anything on youtube and go into the game blind.

Flynn's voice actor always had a dream of being in a kingdom hearts game.

Oh one more positive, I like the cooking system.

When Sora goes "OOPS" and the egg breaks it's funny/cute

Just finished the Frozen world. 16 hours in. Level 30

I think this game... is meant for very young kids. It's sad how simple and dumb it is.

The Frozen world was one of the best ones, and even then I thought it was not that great. They basically just ripped the story from Frozen copy paste and made it the plot.

The "Let it Go" scene was fantastic though, obviously, even though I've seen it like 50 times.

There's a huge tonal shift between the "cutesy" Disney scenes and the "hardcore" Organization XIII scenes. It doesn't feel right.

Also, why is Sora going to the worlds. What is his motivation, something about getting his power back?

The level of Monsters Inc was disgusting... that little girl was annoying the hell out of me.

I also heard from my brother that the Tangled world's story was ripped right from the movie as well word for word.

So wait

You didn't even finish KH2, yet it's the game's fault for not having a recap?

Which it does, btw

It recaps KH2? I didn't see it. Something about Aqua getting stuck and Sora losing his power?

Recaps are contained in the memory archive on the title page. Aqua got stuck in the Realm of Darkness at the end of Birth by Sleep and Sora "lost his power" at the end of Dream Drop Distance because he almost fell to darkness even though Aqua also fell to darkness and that didn't affect her at all because reasons
