I'm enjoying the game so far, but I think my expectations were too high. It's great and all, a solid 8.5 given how much I've played so far, but it doesn't feel revolutionary enough to warrant the wait. In fact, it plays identically to the KH1/KH2 HD remasters, what with the floaty movement physics. When walking near the edge of a map, the invisible walls are quite jarring; it's not easy to identify if a box or platform is "real". The Gummi ship editor seems like it was copy/pasted directly from the older games. I could come up with more, but right off the heels of playing KH1 and KH2, the burnt-out feeling I have has extended to this game as well.

Being the epic game that it is, though, I do intend on finishing it, and my five-year-old freaking loves it, and won't put it down. The animations are of a very high quality, and the Disney characters especially look damn good. Like, holy crap, good. The world, however, seems lacking in the graphics department, and could have used some higher resolution textures and better models.

And I realize I sound like I'm contradicting myself, but I'm trying to walk a fine line, as I don't want to come off as someone who is trying to troll. I'm more curious if others have noticed these issues and feel the same type of way about them that I do.



I believe the Gold edition is selling well so let's say the average sale price week 1 was $75 then that's 375m revenue week 1. Amazing.

Even with this amazing multplat success, I am sensing an exclusive remake of the mobile game as their next move

I dont think so.I think Nomura and Square want to have a clean slate for the next KH game.Since KH III finishes the Seeker of Darkness saga(havent finished the game yet, so no spoilers), I guess they would want their next game to be a completely new story, just with the same characters.

So you think they will go straight into KH4? Because I think they need a remake/ to finish the mobile game first to set up for KH4

Again, havent finished KH III, so I dont know if every single story thread has been adressed.But every review I read so far said it was a satisfiyng ending to the arc.So Im assuming that, since the mobile game is about the Keyblade War, that the major story points end up being adressed in KH III, and those that dont will be resolved in the mobile game itself.

KH III was marketed as the end of the Seeker of Darkness saga.So I dont see a reason for Nomura to go and say "Oh by the way, the next KH will still keep telling the same story.KH III wasnt the end.Im sorry!"

And the next KH dosent need to have a number on its title.One thing people keep confusing is that KH dosent have spin offs.They are all mainline titles.Having said that, yes I do think that he will go straight to KH 4.In order to set up a new saga, I think its easier to convince people of such by making a numbered title.

Huge numbers indeed ! (Even if I'd take sell through over anything else) but looking at it's 2nd week in Japan, we're not looking at the most graceful legs ...

Tell me, what PS4 game DOES have legs in Japan lol

Multiple 1st party games like Spidey, God of War and 3rd party games like COD, Red Dead II were averaging a dropduring the 2nd week of 50 %. Heck, it seems RE2 Remake had a way better drop than KH3.

It;s difficult to have this conversation without you having beat the game, so I can't really comment any further 



this is better than expected..... which is good news, it deserves every sale.



Well-deserved
