Hey everyone. Syniax here with another blog post and trying to remain active just like I said I would. This one is about Kingdom Hearts 3. A game that was technically not in the backlog but I had to get it done once it dropped. This game was truly amazing but at the same time, I felt it could have been better in some areas and other areas were completely unnecessary.
So let’s start off with the bad of this game in my opinion. One of the things in the beginning which I thought was cool that got really repetitive quickly were the attractions. These are skills that you gain over the course of the battle which turns into a little mini cinematic. For example, one attraction is you summon a pirate boat that swings side to side attacking the enemies with water splashing or the boat nailing them. You can skip or possibly turn off the cinematics but the attack in on itself is cinematic which takes you from the fighting and combat that you are familiar with when playing with Keyblade wielders.
Other attractions put you into a seat of a blaster cannon, wherein which you shoot enemies with a blaster vehicle and again taking you away from the actual keyblade gameplay. It also tends to make some of the battles a bit easier once you were able to trigger such an event but that could easily be remedied by increasing the difficulty.
The story was pretty good. It’s really hard to go into detail about the ending and a lot that was going on without giving out spoilers but the game was pretty good when it came down to its story. It keeps you wondering and also giving you tidbits of the past to keep you informed about what is going on and your mission in the game. They also have a video for you to watch to brush up or even catch you up on the series but that didn’t do too well as far as information. It got the surface details out of the way but as far as deeper situations it didn’t really cover in my opinion and from what I remember.
The combat was amazing. Each keyblade had its own skill set wherein which you can summon new powers for each keyblade depending on which you were using. My favorite would have to be the keyblade obtained from The Carribean. Its first skill you can use is “Highwind” and turns your keyblade into a spear. Immediately it clicked for me as an easter egg paying some respects to Cid who is known to use a spear and also flies the Highwind.
The one thing I will say that was a huge improvement for me was the gummi ship scenarios. Finally, they made it where you don’t have to deal with it so much to get from world to world. And even if you had to do combat it was actually a lot better than its previous renditions.
Overall this game is amazing. The story amazing and the combat amazing. Some areas could have used a little bit of work but overall, epic! Anyways I am out and will be getting that Resident Evil 2 half ass review out soon! Always remain epic!
