While I can not stop singing my praises of Kingdom Hearts III, there were some issues I found myself coming up against time and time again, to the point where I was left a slightly bitter taste. For a game saga’s final chapter, tying in nine games was always going to be a difficult task, but the writers did a good job of it, almost too well, in fact. I managed to finish the main story and all six main Disney worlds in just under 30 hours, something I had never managed to do any other Kingdom Hearts title. This left me wondering why there wasn’t any additional story content to fill out an extra 10 hours, at least.
On top of this and this is more a personal critique, but the number of Disney worlds could have also been fleshed out to include at least two others. Also, being a huge Disney fan worked slightly against my overall experience, since there were several missed opportunities to expand on the worlds that already existed. Heaps of plot points and expositional scenes that made these Disney movies enjoyable were cut out, ironically removing the heart of these classic tales. As well as the noticeable absence of any Final Fantasy characters, what-so-ever. This really irked me, considering what Kingdom Hearts was originally fashioned to be; a Disney/Final Fantasy cross-over role playing series.
