I haven't rented this game from gamefly, I BOUGHT it the day it came out! I have always been a big Kingdom Hearts fan. Story-wise, if you haven't played previous KH games or you simply do not pay attention, you WILL be confused. Combat is amazing,and...just playing with those Dream eaters is addictingly fun! There is one flaw, however, the difficulty of this game is higher than any KH game I've ever played. You CANNOT just fly by in this game, you need to level up and create new dream eaters and level them up for skills for your character. Other than that ONE flaw KH3D is an amazing game and if you try it, I'm pretty sure you will want to buy it.
I enjoyed kingdom Hearts for years, but this game really made me have alot of fun again since II. I loved the new moves that can be done, the flowmotion was a brilliant addition to the game, Dream Eaters were also a nice mix to the game, basically its what A new kingdom Hearts should be; New additions to gameplay and more deeply detailed story. Overall, its one of the best KH games ever.

It has now been ten years since the first Kingdom Hearts game was released, and the franchise has developed into a must wait for event with every release. Sure, not all of them lived up to our expectations (Chain of Memories), but Kingdom Hearts 3D is one of those games worth waiting for.
The game is a 9.8 in my opinion, I gave it a perfect 10 ,because I did not think it deserve an A-, but more like of an A. The main part about any game is its gameplay, which is perfect. Flowmotion is exactly what you would expect, a smooth combat and ariel package that allows all kinds of possibilities. It makes fighting easy and effective, as well as the new command deck style, which is similar to Birth By Sleep's. The companions that assist you, the Dream Eaters, are very cute and powerful. They are also come in many shapes and sizes. My favorite is meow wow. The cinematic moments in the game are also done well. They use the 3D to incorporate an invigorating story.
SPOILERS an example would be when Sora has been captured by Young Xehanort, Where he shows you that Xehanort as a heartless had planned every step leading up to Sora's capture since Their first encounter on Destiny Island, enlisting in the help of his younger self to form the organization XIII. Xehanort even knew that Sora would go into the secret place just before it was engulfed by darkness. When Sora asks how, Young Xehanort answers ,"I thought that would be obvious.", Then Kairi was launched towards the screen in amazement.
Their were only two problems that I thought there were in the game. first that the use of flashbacks in the momentoes, made it confusing to understand what was happening, and some of then were pointless. Second it was too short. I would recommend that if you are interested in the series, but have never played any of the game that they should buy it because it will fill in the details you have missed with its chronicles. So rent the game from gamefly, and if you do not have an account get 1
