I have to say that i was pretty hyped when i heard about this game. But then i heard that they were just recycling the old game locations. Also, it is not a free roam where you can go explore and save your game at save points and stuff. This kinda bummed me out. The story mode is simple: Xemnas gives roxas missions to do and sometimes you will go on these missions with other members of orginization 13. These missions kind of detract from the RPG experience because its just mission after mission and after each mission, you are treated with a popsicle-eating scene on the top of a big azz clock tower. These scenes are mostly uninteresting and they dont really add to the story. The combat is pretty simple but you dont buy new combos, the 2 combos you can perform(ground and midair) depend on which keyblade you are weilding. Besides all these somewhat minor flaws, the game is pretty fun and challenging. If you are a Kingdom Hearts fan then you should definitely get this. And if you're not a diehard fan of KH, then i suggest renting it.

I am more then half way through this game and it is BORING ME TO TEARS. It is taking me forever to beat it because it's SO BORING.

I was hoping I'd get to see another side to the characters and Roxas, but they pretty much have the same depth as they did in KH2 for the 5 minutes they appeared on screen. Everyone is 1 dimensional and boring, even Axel, I had hopes for him really. Plot moves along REALLY SLOWLY.

Gameplay is repetitive and boring, button mashing and dodgeroll rinse and repeat. Camera/lock on are messy. Missions, worlds, music, characters, everything is reused and repeated. The Nobodies are pretty much doing what Sora, Donald, and Goofy did, which is destroy heartless. So why are they the bad guys again....?

REALLY.
SLOW.
BORING.
REPETITIVE.
Those words sum up this game nicely. I can't believe it's gotten such good ratings. Disney must be paying people off.
